The next charming romance by the USA Today bestselling author of The Wedding Date.

Maddie and Theo have two things in common:

1. Alexa is their best friend 2. They hate each other

After an "oops, we made a mistake" night together, neither one can stop thinking about the other. With Alexa's wedding rapidly approaching, Maddie and Theo both share bridal party responsibilities that require more interaction with each other than they're comfortable with. Underneath the sharp barbs they toss at each other is a simmering attraction that won't fade. It builds until they find themselves sneaking off together to release some tension when Alexa isn't looking.

But as with any engagement with a nemesis, there are unspoken rules that must be abided by. First and foremost, don't fall in love.

??????Robbie’s Review??????

There are many things to love about Jasmine Guillory’s books, but my favorite thing to love is the way characters from her other books keep showing up in the one I’m currently reading. I’m not saying this quality is uniquely hers, but it just makes me feel like I’m having a visit with some old friends even though the books are meant to be standalones and not a series. Another thing her books have in common is unlikely people fall in love whether they want to or not and they have lots of fun and food while they’re doing it. If you’re like me and live a large part of your reading life on the dark side with psychopaths and other bad actors, then a good romantic comedy is refreshing. It cleanses my mental palate so I can dive back into Whacky World once more. So why don’t I go on a steady diet of feel-good books? For one thing, too much of a good thing is . . . well, not good. And I think the author recognizes this because the road to happiness never rides completely smoothly and she always includes some bumps and some angst to make it real.
I loved Maddie and Theo because it’s Mr. Nerdy OCD meets Miss Girls Just Wanna Have Fun and suddenly he’s not so nerdy anymore and she is fighting with every quirk she has not to fall for a guy who is obviously so wrong for her. There is no doubt Jasmine Guillory has found her niche and has not only settled into it, but she is also thriving in it. If you are looking for a book to make you want to lounge on the couch all day and read, maybe with a few snacks here and there, this book will do it for you. I’ve already seen a posting for the next book coming out this fall featuring Maddie’s mother who is quite a colorful character in her own right. Needless to say, I’ve got out my footie pajamas and my popcorn and I’m ready to read!
Many Thanks to Berkley Books and Netgalley for the Opportunity to Read and Review The Wedding Party!
