My Review:

This is a fun contemporary romance
Featuring Sarah who never gives any man a second chance,
She’s a love ‘em then never see them again girl
Who never gives men another twirl.

So imagine her surprise when the last man she had
Turns out to be someone she can’t forget - to her that’s so bad!
However to make matters even worse is something other - 
He turns out to be her best friend’s groom’s brother!

Travelling from the States to her friend’s Irish wedding do
She never expected to see Declan Murphy there, too.
Mind you, he also didn’t expect to see her there
Should she give him a second chance - does she dare?

This is a story of facing up to your fears
And exploring your own actions through the years
It is about how teen family drama can have an impact
On how you, as an adult, choose to act.

It is a story filled with friendship, love and laughter
Of daring to seek the one you’ll love ever after.
Declan is my hero, so patient and true
You’ll just have to read it to find what Sarah will do!

I also wish to say thank you to Bookouture and NetGalley too,
For my copy of this book for which I’ve written this honest review.

Synopsis:

Who could have predicted this? Being at the same wedding. In Ireland. There’s a reason one-night stands are one-night stands. You’re not supposed to see each other again, especially not when you’re the maid of honor, and he’s the groom’s brother…

Sarah Anderson has never been more excited about anything in her life. She’s going to her best friend’s wedding. And not just any wedding. An Irish wedding. Goodbye New York, hello rolling green hills and men with beautiful accents and twinkling eyes.

But Sarah should have known that not all guests are fairy-tale princes…

There’s the chinless Uncle Trevor, whose idea of small talk is to claim climate change is a conspiracy.

Then there’s Great Aunt Eileen, who doesn’t talk at all (she’s too busy replacing the hotel cutlery with her own set).

Worst of all, there’s Declan Murphy. Best man. Brother of the groom. And the man Sarah last saw naked.

Is there anything more mortifying than bumping into a one-night stand halfway across the world? Especially as Declan seems determined to embarrass Sarah at every turn. At least when the wedding’s over she’ll never have to see him again.

But, back in New York, Sarah finds the more she tries to forget Declan, the more she can’t shake the thought of that infuriatingly charming smile and the way he wears a tux…

Was he really just for one night only, or might Declan Murphy be The One?

Prepare to laugh until you cry with this perfect feel-good romantic comedy about taking a chance on love. Fans of Sophie Ranald, Sophie Kinsella and Marian Keyes won’t be able to put this down!
