Publisher's Summary

If you ever get married, remember my name: Max Henderson. In my line of work, you acquire a certain perspective on supposedly everlasting unions....

  1. Pre-nups are your friend. 
  2. The person you married is not the person you’re divorcing. 
  3. And I hope you didn’t spend much on the wedding because that was one helluva waste of hard-earned cash, wasn’t it? 

But some guys are willing to take a chance. Like my brother, who thinks he’s going to ride off into the sunset with the woman of his dreams in a haze of glitter on unicorns. And the wedding planner - the green-eyed beauty who makes a living convincing suckers to shell out thousands of dollars on centerpieces - is raking it in on this matrimonial monstrosity. 

The thing is, Charlie Love is not unlike me. We’re both cogs in the wedding-industrial complex. As the best man, I know her game - and I can play it better than her. But after one scorching, unexpected kiss, I’m thinking I might just want to get played.

A HEARTFELT ROMANCE WITH A DELICIOUS SLOW BURN

This was a new to me author however I thought I’d give her a try.. and I’m so very glad I did because this opposites attract amusing love story was really enjoyable. A wedding planner who is looking for Mr. Right when along comes Mr. Oh So Wrong.. because Divorce Lawyer Max had been ruthlessly burned by love before and sees nothing but the bad side of failed marriages in his office every day. So he doesn’t do commitments, doesn’t make promises, doesn’t do repeats and definitely doesn’t date.. so, when he sees a mysterious beauty in pink sitting at the Bar, he tries to have a ‘one and done’ with her.. but things don’t exactly go his way.. and then he finds out just who she is. However, the more Max gets to know Charlie (who is his brother’s Wedding Planner) the more he wants her.. but be careful Max because this feisty little lady could get under your skin, could drive you mad, could push your boundaries and could change your whole future. And will Charlie be tempted by the handsome Player?.. will she be crazy enough to agree to a ‘just for now’ fling?.. will she eventually come to regret her decision?.. and could she reveal and steal this Player’s heart?

I think we all know the answers to those questions because it’s a fairly predictable ‘done before’ plot.. but the wickedly delicious rocky road to get there was so very enjoyable as the jaded cynic and the prickly dreamer’s chemistry and relationship beliefs clashed over and over again. They truly didn’t want to be lustfully drawn to, sexually aware of and distractingly attracted to the other.. but add in their loveable personalities, and voila Cupid’s arrow hit its mark. In this insightful addictive story there’s witty snarky banter, sex, romance, a good secondary cast, complex characters and character growth, depth and humor en-route to the sweet HEA ending. The dual POV narration by Jason (.. I love you Jason) was excellent as usual and his vocal abilities brought each and every one of the characters to life with a smooth sexy tone and he definitely made this a 5 star audiobook. Pippa Jayne’s narration was good too.

Worth a credit? It’s an instant flare and fire that brings delicious anticipation.. it’s a well-paced slow-burn that flashes and sparks into so much more.. it’s a well-written oil and water love story and this talented author made the impossible happen.. and yes, it is IMO, creditworthy.
