Marnie Price needed certain things to survive all her friends finding happiness. At the bar she finds it in drinks and she wouldn’t be alone in drinking as Dylan will be by her side. She will be waking up with him in her bed and it wouldn’t stop there. Marnie will want more but find that Dylan might not want that.
Dylan Brookes is a sensible man who is organized and does the right thing. He messes up with sleeping with his ex’s best friend. After that one night Dylan wanted more and will pursue this woman but he isn’t sure if he wants to take it all the way thanks to his parents.
Last Groom Standing is the fourth and final book to this series Wedding Season. Kimberly Lang finishes up this series with her story that pairs off the last of the friends. This was a cute finish up to the series.
It was interesting pairing between Marnie and Dylan but I liked them together as they were very much alike. The chemistry they have is obviously compatible especially as they continue this fling. I liked Marnie as she knew what she wanted but she also gave up too quickly. She didn’t want to be hurt by Dylan so she took the easy way out. Dylan is the straight-laced sort of guy and his world is shaken up with Marnie in it. I thought the information about his parents was interesting as it shaped him how he was and how he acted. As with the other books there were up and downs but when the time was needed I thought Dylan finally got it together.
I don’t read too many series where multiple authors contribute but I felt that the Wedding Season series was written well by all four of authors.
Gina Carrington was not one to shy away from flirtation and sex but with one night with Carter ten years ago she felt shame. She broke up a friendship and damaged a soon to be marriage. Gina changed after that, she was still a flirt but wiser. She will now be making apologies to Carter but old habits are hard to get rid of. She will find herself with Carter once again but this time there was nothing stopping the relationship.
Carter had never forgotten Gina since that night and now he has a second chance with her and this time he wouldn’t let her get away. Though it wouldn’t be easy to keep Gina at his side.
Maid of Dishonor is the third book to Wedding Season series by Heidi Rice. I liked this book at lot and found it intriguing to read with the secret that Gina had been holding, and the hurt feelings that night which ruined a friendship.
As I am going through this series it is very interesting that it is being written by four different authors and yet they all work. The personalities are all the same from book to book which is great as you get the fluidity of the series.
Carter and Gina’s story which was talked about in hushed terms throughout the series with what happened between them ten years ago. Though this book will go in more discussion with what happened and give Gina’s side of the story, not just the crude one she had given. Gina to me seemed more with this story. I liked her before but she is a better person to me as I find out what happened that night and the aftermath. Carter to me seemed like a player but that was deceiving as he was much more. I liked that he was focused on what he lost and was determined to find a way to win her back. There are bumps in that road a secret that Gina was keeping will come out and will be shocking everyone, but it gives them that second chance that was waiting for them.
The final book, Last Groom Standing, is next for me.
Samuel “Tuck” Tucker was seen as a jock foremost but what most did not see was that he had a brain. Cassie was the girl who thought him stupid and he was having fun making her think otherwise but the joke will be up and he will find that the more he spends with her the more he wants her.
Cassie Barclay was genius smart, she wasn’t the normal girl next door. She will brush off Tuck and didn’t want to give him a moment of her time because he was a jock. The problem was she was attracted to him.
Girl Least Likely To Marry by Amy Andrews is the second book to Wedding Season series by four different authors. I liked this book, it was cute and a fast paced. Its a Harlequin romance, the first one was as well, so they tend to be shorter than other novels. I felt that this story flowed a little more than the first. I think it was because I have know gotten to know the friends a little better. It didn’t hurt that there were no hurt feelings that started with these two characters. There was a little annoyance with each other, really on Cassie’s side, but that quickly evaporated especially when they started to sleep with each other.
I honestly liked Cassie’s character as she was a genius, she just didn’t have much at experience with living life. It was kind of humorous when she started to act normal with feelings at the end. It was something she had never felt before. Tuck was kind of a player but all in good fun. I didn’t like he took Cassie on a dance with a wager but I warmed up to his character. He was fun loving and was smart which worked well for Cassie. I liked them together and was cheering for them to find that happy ending.
I am reading the third book, Maid of Dishonor, next which is with Gina.
Reese Michael had been married ten years ago and it nearly broke her as she loved him. He was back now and Reese can’t deny the chemistry but she doesn’t want to feel that as he was her past.
Mason Hicks was back facing his ex-wife wanting closure but it was hard to have a conversation when she was glaring daggers at him. He was the reason for her now fiance walking away. He wants to make things right which is why he will have to stay away from her as the chemistry between them is still alive.
The Unexpected Wedding Guest by Aimee Carson is the first book to the Wedding Season series. This series is written by four different authors all about these four friends finding love. I liked the story. It didn’t grab me right away but it was sweet in the end as it was all about second chances.
Reese needed to grow up and figure out what went wrong in her marriage which does happen giving her clarity. I thought Reese was a little naive with the idea of going through with this other marriage as she clearly had some issues thanks to her first marriage. Mason was a solider who had been been through a very traumatic time in war. He was broken now and looking for closure. I wanted Mason to stop dragging his feet and really talk which is what he wanted to do. Instead he just avoids the topic and walks away. As the story went on I was happy that they were able to have that time to talk and get their second chances.
I have all four book in my possession so I will be reading the second book next with Cassie.
