I knew on the day of the attack that our lives were changed forever. What I didn’t know then was that I’d never see John again after he deployed. One day he was living with me, sleeping next to me, making plans with me. The next day he was gone. That was five years ago. The world has moved on from that awful day, but I’m stuck in my own personal hell, waiting for a man who may be dead for all I know. At my sister’s wedding, I meet Eric, the brother of the groom, and my heart comes alive once again.

Can't say I liked this book. The narrators were good but the story was all over the place with chapters from too many different character's pov. Didn't care for the ending wanted you to wrap up the character she didn't choose. I just feel like it didn't finish.

Their union started with a simple plan: to fake a marriage that would allow Elizabeth to take over her father’s company and merge it with Weston’s holdings, creating a vast media empire. But what began as a pretend marriage has become all too real.... Now a bombshell about Weston’s past is keeping him rooted at home while Elizabeth must travel across the globe to take up the company reigns. But their intense connection could bring the entire game crashing down as they’re forced to choose power and family...or the love of a lifetime.

It's hard to accept that these characters could be so childish and make such idiotic decisions. Never really liked the concept of a Duet - One story for the price of two! And I'm sorry this Duet has turned me off of this author as well. These characters are so foolish you finally just don't care. Won't even try to read another one. Narrators, on the other hand, did an excellent job.

Weekday Brides is such a good series and this book wraps it up so well. There is the love story and just enough danger to make things interesting. Plus humor. I love Tanya Eby's voice, it's so smooth and absolutely great when reading as women or men. All good, highly recommended.
