Opposites clash in this wild, unpredictable rom com, where two strangers team up to stop a wedding at all costs.
Nathaniel Barry is monochromatic, meticulous, and uptight. Izzy Harris is wild, unpredictable, and free-spirited. Nathaniel has a trendy apartment, a successful career, and a girlfriend he’s about to propose to. Izzy has no home, no career, and nobody special to hold her down.
They’re polar-opposites in every way.
So when they sit next to each other on the train to Romeo, New York they clash from the very start. Naturally, Nathaniel decides he wants nothing to do with Izzy. And Izzy…well, she has a different opinion.
No matter how much Nathaniel protests, Izzy knows it was fate that brought them together. Nathaniel’s girlfriend just ran off to marry another man, and Izzy swears she’ll help Nathaniel win her back. They have three days to stop the ill-advised wedding. It should be easy. It should be simple. But when two polar opposites team-up to stop a wedding, there’s only one guarantee – that nothing will go as planned.
Married by Sunday is Book 5 in Sarah Ready’s Soul Mates in Romeo Romance Series.

“Excuse me, I think my boyfriend is under your table.”
I hold extremely still and crouch in a little ball under the round wooden table. The white tablecloth nearly touches the floor, but I can see the tip of Gertrude’s high heels and Raphael’s brown wingtips behind her.
“If you don’t mind, I’m just going to look.”
I close my eyes. How did my life come to this? How did I go from an incredibly successful, well-respected businessman to a disaster covered in cake crouched under a table? It’s embarrassing.
I wait for the tablecloth to lift up, but it doesn’t.
I move back but the woman at the table kicks me. I grunt and then hold still.
Wait a minute.
I recognize those shoes.
“Don’t you dare,” a woman with a southern drawl a mile wide says. “My husband is under this table giving me the French tickle, it’s our honeymoon, and I always wanted a little tongue bath in public. Ah ah. Back away from the tablecloth, missy.”
A grin spreads across my face. She’s absurd, she’s obscene, she’s the best.
I could kiss her.
“If you lift this tablecloth, this whole restaurant and all them old ladies will see my hoo-ha. That’ll ruin their appetites. Or it’ll make ’em jealous. Either way.”
“My treasure,” Raphael says, “the lady says the man you saw is her husband.”
“But…but I swear I saw Nathaniel. I don’t know why he’s here. I told him not to come,” Gertrude says.
“Well, that settles it. You couldn’t have seen a Nathaniel. My husband’s name is Devon.”
I stifle a surprised laugh and Izzy kicks at me again.
“Now, if you’ll please excuse us, I’d like to get back to it. We only live once, ya know.”
She rescued me.

This started off really cute! In a way this was kind of a short and sweet story, the pace moving right along, not a lot of time spent on anything besides the story. Right off the bat I though Izzy was a little bit out there. But it was fun to see her and Nathaniel interacting and how she loosened him up along the way. This is my first book in the Soulmates in Romeo series, but I’ve been wanting to start it for a while now! After reading this one, I know that I do still want to go back and read the others, and as quick and easy of a little read it was, I know I can fit them in among other review books.
The little town was so cute, and the characters were all pretty much as expected. There was the moment when it seemed like maybe Nathaniel might get his ex back, but I like the way the author handled it. It was the perfect way. And it wasn’t necessarily that the guy who swept her off her feet had been using her. Yeah, he was Italian and suave and romantic in all the ways that Izzy said, but he was still a good guy. As to Izzy’s ex, I had a feeling it was going to be what it was, based on how she’d handled any questions or phrased her answers.
So many cute things in this, banter, accidental spills and incidents, and the romantic swoony parts too. But my favorite was probably this poem:
“Chocolates are sweet and so are you…let’s eat the whole box, yum, yum, chew.”
