Archibald Hill is handsome, single, and he’s going to his best friend’s wedding ready to make a conquest or two. After all, everyone knows weddings are the perfect setting to get lucky.
Summer Knowles used to have a life—friends, family, a sister who’d do anything for her—until she blew it all away with a terrible mistake. Now, attending her twin’s wedding as the party’s undesirable number one seems like more than she can handle. So, when a tall stranger with smoldering ice-blue eyes offers her a therapy of seven nights of no-strings-attached fun, she might even ignore that he has a beard and accept.
Problem is, Summer has never been good at keeping sex and feelings separated…
Where has this series been? How am I just now reading it? Fortunately it is one you don’t have to start at the beginning, but now I need to go back and read at least the two that are very directly related to this story, and probably I’ll need to go all the way back to the beginning of this series as well. I think that I’ve found a new author to fangirl over! This story was hilarious and such a page-turner!
Yes Archie was the usual commitment-phobe male love interest that you see so often in both real life and romances. But I feel like the author made him come around, realize that he wanted more this time, in such a realistic non-hurried, non-sudden way that it just worked so well. And while Summer definitely had very good reason to be cautious and only say okay to a casual, no strings-attached, one week fling, her feelings developed also in a realistic way. Not only that, I think the way Summer handled the casualness of it, and dealing with not letting it get too far out of hand was perfect.
The way the book begins is also something new to romance stories, but something that I kind of wish I’d done, or that I can totally see being done more often these days.
While the author gets you so in the mood and you can feel the physical tension and want between the two, I was disappointed in the fade to black, next chapter-next morning, no actual bedroom scene. I get it, not everyone likes those scenes as much as I do, and it didn’t make the story any less wonderful, that is just why on my blog rating as opposed to other reviews, I’ve marked it down to a 4.5 stars.
Highly recommend this one, get it as soon as you can!
