Publisher's Summary

Divorce attorney Blair Hansen is convinced that marriage should be based on practicality, not passion. But as her own wedding approaches, she finds herself remembering her law school boyfriend, the only man she's ever loved, and regretting what might have been.

Garrett Lowry is a divorce attorney who's ready to settle down. The problem is that he can't find a woman who suits him nearly as well as the one he loved and lost. He broke her heart by playing the field after their breakup - something he's always regretted. But after months of pining for Blair, Garrett stumbles across her in a freak coincidence, and then destiny keeps throwing them together. He's convinced it's a sign that they should give their love a second chance. Can Garrett convince Blair that a player once isn't a player forever and that happy endings aren't just for dreamers?

Oh, my goodness! This story!!!

This was a great book! The ice queen and the supposed player, the twisty turn of events throughout this story was absolutely crazy! I couldn't put it down. I laughed so hard at the unbelievably funny parts, and smiled so big at all of the a-ha and gotcha moments. Like I said at the beginning, it was great!
Listening to the audio book, Shannon McManus was the perfect voice for this story. she brought every single character - male and female - to life. I could feel the irritations, the emotions, and the attitude of each key player in this book. Awesome job. I will definitely add her to my list of narrators to look for.

This would make a great movie!

I loved this story of Garrett and Blaire. There were so many things going on that I could easily watch this as a movie. The narrator did a superb job portraying the characters.

Little bit unbelievable

Performance great! Character Blaire is a little hard to believe. Suppose to be strong independent hard women with major trust issues and no tolerance for cheaters or lies. Based off that I find it hard to believe that such a person would easily dismiss red flag behaviors and blindly trust everything a boyfriend would say based off his low sex drive with her. Even having her stay business like in relationship did not make it enough to be believable.
If that aspect was fixed I would have loved it. Various parts of book were funny and overall story was okay. The one part just messed it up for me.

Entertaining

I really like Denise Grover Swank's books. But, I didn't seem to like this one as much as I like her other books. It wasn't as funny as The Substitute (the first book in this series.) Nor did it have the twists and turns of her other books I've read. It just seemed really predictable for the most part. Maybe I just didn't like Blaire, the female lead... I just found her to be whiny and bitchy. And I usually like strong, female leads. The saving grace of this book is the ending. It was quirky and awesome and totally worth getting through the rest of the book for.

Another wedding disaster stopped

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Sure, if you enjoyed The Substitute and wanted to hear one of the friends near miss.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Not surprised.

Any additional comments?

I did like listening to this story. It passed the time on my to and from from work. But, it seemed like it was a little too long for my liking. A predictable ending that I was happy to finish already.

Another Satisfying Immersion Reading Experience

Another winning story by Denise Grover Swank. I'm not really a romance reader as I prefer mysteries, thrillers, fantasies, satire, and dark tales. But once in a while I need a light and uplifting book to make me smile. And this book certainly did it for me.

I loved the first book, The Substitute, in "The Wedding Pact" series so much that I knew I had to read the second and I'm certainly glad I did. Although this book wasn't as humorous as the first it did have its moments. Denise Grover Swank's writing had me on a roller coaster of emotions from having me laughing to tearing up and then melting my heart moments. Also, there were moments of frustration for some of the stupid choices Blair and Garrett made and only proving that being well educated doesn't always endow you with common sense when you most need it.

Bonus was the inclusion of Blair's friends Libby and Megan from the first book and her friend Megan's mother Nickers (aka: Nicole), her hysterically funny grandmother, and of course the McMillan brothers.

I look forward to reading the third book in the series to see what other antics these three best friends can come up with and I can't wait to see who Libby ends up marrying because I doubt it will be Mitch and suspect her "just a friend" side-kick Noah McMillan is the man who will be stealing her heart and hand in marriage.

P.S. The narrator does a wonderful job on this book as she did on the first. She really pulls me into the story in these book series.

2ND CHANCES

I thoroughly enjoyed this story by Denise Grover Swank. It's just a lovely sweet love story between lawyers & ex boyfriend/girlfriend Garrett & Blair, who haven't seen each other in 5 yrs even Garrett walked out on her, but then when he tries & talk to her, she ignores him.
so jump 5 yrs on where Blair can't really trust anyone or especially fall in love but she's going to marry a doctor & that doctor (whose a bit of a Pillock well a big one) is Garrett's cousin & he's going to the wedding as a groomsman, not knowing who he's going to marry as he didn't open his invite. But he got told by his boss that whilst he's up that way for the wedding he can do & cover as someone's divorce brief & guess who's going to be the brief for the wife.
But what a beautiful love story and they have a lot of those heated anguish that you might have Eden you feel like things haven't been resolved.
I do recommend Denise's WEDDING PACK #2
