My #Review for You May Kiss the Bridesmaid by Camilla Isley #RomCom #Series #BlogTour


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…

My Review:

Twins Summer and Winter Knowles used to be the closest of friends, until Summer made a mistake that estranged her from her family who don’t seem able to forget or forgive her. Now Winter is getting married and Summer is expected to attend and be a bridesmaid, but Summer is dreading the condemning looks, nasty comments and being ostracised by her former friends. She understands why it will happen, but still dreads the entire experience though she knows she has to support her twin. What makes it worse is that this isn’t just a wedding day, it is a week of events leading up to the big day. . . . . After hearing some of her former best friends discussing her, Summer takes refuge by going to the room of the best man, Archibald Hill, who had propositioned and been turned down by her earlier. Archie is something of a playboy. He has a reputation as a love them and leave them man who never takes relationships seriously . . . . A match made in heaven or hell? Whatever happens the bride will go ballistic at the both when she finds out!!

This is a rom com with plenty of drama, lots of laughs and even more hot encounters. It is an engaging read which can be read as a standalone even though it is the sixth book in the ‘First Comes Love’ series. That series title didn’t necessarily appear appropriate for this particular book as the acknowledgement of love comes at the end, not at the beginning when lust and desire have precedence! It is a steamy romance with plenty of angst as Summer’s Mum and previous friends seem determined to keep punishing Summer and won’t forget what happened, even though the lovely victim of what happened, Lana, has definitely moved on and is friendly and supportive of Summer. In fact, Lana is definitely one of my favourite characters in the story. With the two main characters assuming this is just a secret relationship for a week, what will happen after the wedding week ends? You’ll have to read it for yourself to find out!

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.
