Lacey Ryan is the sensational wedding planner of a lifetime. But when her own dream wedding falls apart the night before the kiss at the altar, Lacey’s life dives into chaos.
As she tries to keep her professional head in the game, in comes Tristan Keys . Arrogant, cocksure and downright irresistible. This sexy man from Lacey’s past is back in town and offers her the business opportunity of a lifetime: planning Destination Weddings, all as long as she obeys his every request. First class flights, the chance the see the world.
For this cool, business-savvy entrepreneur, Lacey’s fresh personality throws a wrench into the control he’s used to exerting on his peers, as this hopelessly unromantic young woman tries to keep Tristan from distracting her from her work.
There’s just one problem: he is her brother’s best friend and she is strictly off limits…

Favorite Quotes:

 

I was supposed to marry the man of my dreams, ride off into the sunset and live happily ever after, but somehow it all unraveled like a ball of yarn. I just don’t know who pulled the thread.

 

She taught me that crying is not only ugly, but it is also a waste of mascara. The last time I cried was when my grandmother, Betty, died. I was wearing waterproof mascara, though.

 

To say it out loud is tragic. Maybe I just didn’t notice, or I chose not to notice but our sex life over the years went from the Amazon Rainforest to the Sahara Desert – hot and exotic to dry and welled up.

 

Of course I have to talk like an idiot, how else are you going to understand me?

 

Gentle giant, they used to call him in high school.   Huge, colossal tool is more like it.

 

 

My Review:

 

You would think a wedding planner would have THE perfect wedding, and she was on-track for just that… but during the rehearsal dinner, Lacey learned her love of six years had someone else in play.   Cue record scratch. Despite the premise, the storyline also includes amusing banter and inner musings. I enjoyed the characters and Ms. Ways writing style. The story was entertaining and easy to follow. Written from the first person POV of Lacey, we are privy to her thought processes as she works her way through her anger, guilt, disappointment, memories, and drunken consolation. She doesn’t stay miserable for long as she is immediately offered an unexpected business opportunity – cue set up for subsequent books – she will become a globe-trotter. Sydney is book one and I just so happened to notice the following five books are each labeled with a different exotic local such Paris, Tokyo, Vegas… hmm, sounds like the beginning of a big adventure.

About the Authormaggie-wat

 

Maggie Way is your typical city gal who hails from Sydney, Australia. She loves drinking ridiculous amounts of wine, making her own beauty products from scratch, and traveling around the world while munching on cheese and chocolate. She lives with her real-life happily ever after, while fantasizing about all her hot fictional book boyfriends on the side.

She is also mommy to a little Maltese who may or may not be named after a famous vampire lover. In case you were wondering, no, she will never ever not in a million years write a vampire hero. She prefers her men to be true-to-life even when they just live inside her brain and on the pages of her books.

She writes stories with heat, humor, and lots of heart and is more than happy to say what the rest of us are thinking, and sometimes what we’re not.
