The Bridesmaids’ Checklist: Laura’s Wedding

by K.T. Castle

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

GENRE: New Adult Chicklit Romance

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

BLURB:

 

Kassandra is a single, independent woman who prides herself on her own success. But when she’s asked by her best friend Laura to be the Maid of Honor in her wedding, Kassandra finds herself questioning her lifestyle. Helping Laura plan the wedding is no problem—she’s done it before for all their other friends. The first time was a blast, the second super fun, but doing it without receiving any help from the rest of the girls gets old really fast.

 

The whole event kicks off with the worst kind of surprise when Kassandra discovers who her friend’s fiancé really is, and she’s torn between supporting Laura’s future happiness and hiding the deeply buried, intimate past she shares with the groom-to-be. Struggling to be the bigger person and do all the hard work on her own, Kassandra finds surprising comfort in Josh, the best man in the wedding and someone she’s been avoiding for years. He’s charming, thoughtful, handsome, and the worst kind of womanizer, but she just can’t seem to stay away. All the while, Kassandra can’t help wondering if the wedding could be any more cliché—until she finds unexpected ways to change things up a bit.

 

 

Excerpt:

 

From Chapter 4

 

This can’t be happening.

 

The person sitting at our table was definitely someone I knew. Someone I actually had been avoiding for quite some time.

 

“Well, well. Good morning, babe,” the beautiful blond said to me.

 

I knew this guy. I’d constantly met him at bars and pubs around the city. He was always well accompanied by attractive ladies, but that didn’t stop him from hitting on me. Persistently, he’d tried for the past couple years to get my number and into my panties.

 

This beautiful man and I had a history…well, not really. We had a history of not having a history. He was an artfully known womanizer in the circles we frequented. Knowing exactly what I’d be getting myself into if I ever decided to tap that drop-dead gorgeous body of his, I had no choice but to reject him over and over again.

 

One drunken night I almost caved in.

 

Laura couldn’t be marrying this man.

 

“Oh, God. Not you. You’re a man whore!”

 

He stood as soon as the statement escaped my lips. He didn’t look offended. I guess he was used to my rejections by now. “Nice to see you, too,” the handsome man said. “I like knowing that you miss me.”

 

“Miss you? You wish! I can’t believe you’re marrying my best friend.” And I really didn’t.

 

“No offense, babe, but I’m not the one marrying Laura. I’m Ed’s friend. Name’s Josh, remember?”

 

Oh, right. Josh. For a moment there, I thought I had to talk Laura into canceling the wedding.

 

review

Kassandra is a smart, beautiful and loyal woman so when her friend calls to say she’s getting married there is only one thing to do, help. There is only one problem Kassandra knows the groom a little too well and does not have fond memories. Finding herself in a difficult situation she is torn as to what to do but maybe the best man can help take her mind off it.
Josh is a lover of women and enjoys trying new things. He has had a fair share of relationships and his reputation isn’t the best. Under his wild womanizing ways though is a charming thoughtful man who might just be able to get past the walls Kassandra has built around herself.
When a secret is revealed can Kassandra hold on to the man she loves or will she push him away?
Kassandra has spent years guarding her heart because of the actions of a past boyfriend and herself have left her scared. I was a little disappointed that Kassandra’s friend couldn’t sympathize a little more with her. It’s obvious that she has been left vulnerable and unsure of herself.
Josh has had an interesting past but seems devoted to their relationship and trying to understand Kassandra. He tries not to push her to hard but needs some give and take. Although Kassandra can seem a little judgemental I feel she has her reasons and she does try to understand.
There are some hot moments between Kassandra and Josh that were well written and I was glad there was an HEA. The characters whether you love or hate them are well written and engage the reader. I did enjoy the speech that Kassandra gives it was one of my favorite parts.
This is a great quick read with a decent plot and well written characters. I would recommend it to a lover of contemporary romance and it’s a great start to a new series.
