Jane Lawson is getting married, so of course her sister Susan will be her maid-of-honor. But when sis skips out on planning the wedding, Jane finds a surprising stand-in… the best man!
Dr. David Wells is more than willing to taste wedding cakes, sample reception menus, and even help the bride in and out of wedding dresses, if it means spending time with her. Soon enough, she’ll be his best friend Alan’s wife… and thus off limits forever.
But when the groom says 'I don't', and runs off with the maid-of-honor, his best man is left to pick up the pieces of the bride's heart. David is more than willing, and as Jane turns to him for support, their friendship blossoms into something much more.
Until Jane's old fears get in the way, and David realizes that to keep her, he must fight not only her hostile family, but ghosts from her past.
This story was too dry and linear. I couldn’t connect with either character because they were…. quite frankly boring. Jane was too much of a pushover and David appeared selfish and acted just plain weird to me. I couldn’t understand either of the POV’s. Why were they acting this way? We didn’t really get to know them deeply enough before the story progressed. It was too much craziness with very little reacting. It was like the crazy was normal and I couldn’t wrap my head around it. I don’t even know how else to explain it.
The beginning scene at the wedding was just handled so terribly that I honestly didn’t want to know how the rest of the story unraveled. This book was just not for me.
