Suzanne Jefferson is broke, which is why she’s given up charity work for wedding planning. Fortunately, she has a high-profile client-and best of all, he’s paid in advance. There are just two teensy problems: the bride is a bona fide bridezilla, and Suzanne’s stock racer ex- husband is the best man. At least she though he was her ex-husband…


This book is only going to get three red hearts from me. Here’s the thing, I did not enjoy Suzanne for the most part of the book. She was introduced in the first book as Tammy’s friend, and I liked her there. There was something about her unfiltered mouth and mind that was amusing.

In this book, though, she was just plain annoying. She sounded like a new adult heroine who was always complaining about things. So she hated being a wedding planner? Bitch, get another job, any job, as long as it puts food on your table. So she thought her husband did not love her? Come on, surely, there are many other manisfestations of love other than the ones she is looking for. It’s just surprising that the woman who was so fierce and strong in the previous two books turned out to be immature and whiny.

Ryder, on the other hand, was supposed to have significant character flaws and all which would be the reasons why his marriage to Suzanne did not work. However, the way I see it, Ryder was just a normal guy. He had his shortcomings. He wasn’t the perfect husband, but which man is? Nobody could ever be the perfect husband because no woman is the perfect wife. So, really, I just don’t understand Suzanne and all her issues. I am not sympathetic to her at all.

There were good parts in the book, though. Believe it or not, I find Nikki Borden hilarious, in a usually annoying way. Her stupidity is just unbelievable; I find that there’s nothing I can do but laugh about it. The other secondary characters were great too. It’s always fun reading about Tammy and Elec and Imogen and Ty every now and then. Hopefully, the next book would be a little better than this one.
