Publisher's Summary

USA Today best-selling author Meghan Quinn’s latest bauble is the charming story of a crafting queen battling a jaded divorce lawyer on a wedding reality show.

Luna Rossi is a veritable crafting genius — she can bedazzle and bead so hard her Etsy site is one of the hottest in the world. So it’s only natural that Luna would convince her brother and his husband-to-be to compete on The Wedding Game, a “do-it-yourself” TV show, for the title of Top DIY Wedding Expert.

As a jaded divorce lawyer, Alec Baxter scoffs at weddings and romance. But when his recently engaged brother begs him to participate in The Wedding Game, Alec grudgingly picks up a glue gun and prepares for some family bonding.

Both fierce competitors, Luna and Alec clash on national TV as harsh words and glitter fly with abandon. But as they bicker over color swatches and mood boards, they find themselves fighting something else: their growing mutual attraction. While Luna is torn between family loyalty and her own feelings, Alec wonders if he might have been wrong about love and marriage all along....

So hilarious!!!

I read some of the reviews and I have to agree- there is some crude language. There's cursing which I think is rarely necessary (and I don't curse in reality). There are some steamy times. And these, in my opinion, are not reasons to not give this book a try because this book is HILARIOUS. (fair notice, I love my romance novels, mostly rom-coms). My kids had to ask me why I was laughing so much, as I would erupt into giggles during a few particularly funny scenes. This is definitely one of my favorite First Reads books.

In this book, Luna is a DIY master. She signs her brother and his boyfriend up for the Wedding Game reality show in order to hopefully help them win an apartment of their dreams in NYC. They are matched against 2 other teams, including Alec's team. Alec is a divorce attorney who doesn't believe in love. His brother, Thad, is the ultimate groomzilla and the interactions throughout, between teams and in each team are priceless. The third team is made up of three women, including one of the couple's mother, Helen, who is a horrid person but she adds a lot of humor and is someone we can all root against.

This was an enemies to lover romance but so well done because the relationship evolves naturally. I adored how they worked together to try to get both their siblings the wedding of their dreams. They each have their flaws and they had to confront those flaws but this provided the right amount of angst to an overall hilarious journey.

I listened to the audiobook and really liked it. Tor Thom did a great job as did Lauren Sweet. I think that they were both very soothing to listen to but had fantastic comedic timing. Overall, I enjoyed this book immensely.

Excellent….really just excellent!

I loved A LOT about this story! I’m pretty sure I was listening to this with a large smile on my face. I really couldn’t get enough of these characters (and I’m not just talking the two main characters). They surprised me over and over. I have to give special kudos to Farrah (sorry if spelled wrong I listened to this). She is the most amazing beat friend and her fighting skills are to die for!

The story is just hilarious! That first challenge the contestants had to do with making the vision board was awesome! Then it was followed up by more great content. This is one I could listen to over and over. Speaking of..I did listen to this on audio. Tor Thom is Always a pleasure to listen to. Lauren Sweet is a newer to me narrator and she did excellent as well.

Romance, crafting and laughter

I really enjoyed this book. It was very funny and I had several laugh out loud moments. The characters were wonderful and throughout the book you really got to know them. Storyline was engaging the entire time, and I loved every minute of it. I’m actually sad that it ended, and I’ll miss these characters. I highly recommend this

Cute and fun with some cringe

This was a fun story that started with our main characters being enemies, then friends, then lovers. It was a cute romance. However, there were some pretty cringe-worthy moments that confused me. I was thrown off by some of the stereotypes that were mentioned and they really bothered me. I follow this author on Facebook and, knowing more about her life, the stereotypes didn't make sense.

I really appreciate the way that the book ended and how a couple ( and families) came together.

All the Glittery Stars

The Wedding Game was the fun, lighthearted read that I needed!

With this authors usual romcom perfection she brings us Alec and Luna. Luna was such a great character. She was quirky and zany and could craft like no one else. Alec was the perfect grump that needed that special lady to bring out his soft side. The game show aspect just brought it all together.

This read was one I really enjoyed. It was so different than everything I've read previously and I liked the change in pace. I definitely recommend!

Thousands of books read, first review ever

This is the first book ever to have motivated me to write a review - it’s absolutely terrible. Dumbest storyline ever and I literally couldn’t listen to the male reader’s voice - who chose him? Awful! Do NOT waste your time or money on The Wedding Game. If I could give it negative stars, I would.

Wedding games

I read reviews before I downloaded this book. The reviewers kept saying how funny & wonderful it was
It was neither wonderful or one bit funny. I waste my time on this one.

Not a fan of the Audio

LOVED LOVED LOVED this story. The male narrator was not a good fit for Alec’s character. Way too sultry sounding, when Alec has a funny and quick witted personality. The story was one of my favorites of MQ’s!! Made me laugh but also made me cry. I felt every bit of pain that Alec & Luna felt throughput the story.

No, No, No

For a book that was supposed to be cute, light, and funny, I found it shallow, vulgar and disappointing. Not sure how many times the F bomb was used, but it was way too much! Not cute, not funny, just ugly! I won't read this author again.

Very funny

This was a really good book. Wasn't 100% keen on the female narrator but both did a good job. The story was funny and kept me highly amused. The side characters, esp Helen were great.

Great concept

The Wedding Game is a slow burn, enemies to lovers and the steam is rife once Luna and Alec get over their differences.

Meghan Quinn has written another super easy and funny romance with a slightly different concept. I adored Luna and Alec (after he becomes so strict) as well as all the side characters. Honestly, the story is hilarious and not just between Luna and Alec but all of the characters that make an appearance.

Initially, I didn't believe I'd like the TV concept to this storyline or Alec because he was just so black and white. I was thoroughly surprised and Luna is an absolute cracker jack but she really carries the story with her laugh out loud moments.

very enjoyable listen.

Great performance by the narrators they brought the story to life. really good rom com with characters you can't help but love. if you're looking for a book that makes you feel empathy and joy and want a HEA this is the book for you. I highly recommend as its not often I really want a book turned into a movie I'd watch too but this one would definitely be one I'd watch.
