This is a brilliant, fun read and definitely a keeper IMHO! When Jane Denning agreed to be a bridesmaid for her friend, she didn’t anticipate her turning into a bridezilla! Now she’s been given the chance to miss out on some of the turmoil by babysitting the groom’s brother . . . should be easier, shouldn’t it? Oh no, think again! Cameron MacKinnon has recently returned from deployment and is out for fun, definitely not appreciating being baby sat! However, he finds it is so easy and such fun to wind Jane up!  Initially the two are not attracted to each other, what could possibly go wrong – or right?

I loved this story, packed with laugh out loud moments, as well as some insightful looks at the impact of cruel gossip, the armed forces, PSTD and addiction. There’s no instant love in this story, in fact it is only as the two get to know each other that feelings between them developed, making this feel a more realistic romance. The dynamics between the bride and her friends are excellently portrayed, as is how Cameron acts and react with the reasons explained as the story progresses. It is a fantastic read to escape into, with great characters, plenty of twists and turns and fun – I have no hesitation in highly recommending it!

I requested and was given a copy of this book, via NetGalley. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.

Synopsis:

With her bridezilla friend on a DIY project rampage, bridesmaid Jane Denning will do anything to escape – even if it means babysitting the groom’s troublemaker brother before the wedding. It should be a piece of cake, except the “cake” is a sarcastic former soldier who is 100% wicked hotness and absolutely off-limits.

Cameron MacKinnon is ready to let loose after returning from his deployment. But first he’ll have to sweet talk the ultra-responsible Jane into taking a walk on the wild side. Turns out, riling her up is the best time he’s had in years. But what happens when the fun and games start to turn into something real?

      I love Jenny Holiday’s writing style, she really brings her characters to life and makes me feel like I’m witnessing and involved in events. I hope you get to read this and see if you agree!
