A girl. A guy. And a wedding.
Matthew Daniels and Holly Martin had a one-night stand, twice, and love prevailed. Once Matthew proposes, the hard part is over. The rest is a piece of wedding cake. There’s nothing to stress over now.
However, budgets, a bitter best friend, enormous amounts of family time, and an unexpected change of address may say otherwise.
Thank God for Fireball.
Matthew is super weird and accident prone; add extreme to that mix and you’ve got Holly. These two over the top, adorkable weirdos are destined for each other, a perfect match.
But does everyone see it that way?
The true test to knowing whether you’re ready to take the plunge is surviving the engagement.
Will Holly and Matthew survive? Or will awkward cold feet have them running in opposite directions?
A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: Although this book was written so that it can stand alone, if you don’t know who Peen is, I recommend you read The Two-Night One-Night Stand first.
**This book contains mature content. It is intended for adult readers.
This is the sequel to The Two-Night One Night Stand so it will help if you have read it and therefore have some familiarity with the characters and how they ended up together but Ringbloom does a great job of writing this so it could work as a stand-alone too. If you did read the first then you’ll LOVE what she has done with the characters now.
This book definitely brings new meaning to that phrase “Marry the person, marry the family” and made me glad we opted for more ‘private’ arrangements when we got married lol. Although I didn’t completely escape the in-law antics so I had a lot of empathy for these two. I think anyone who has been through the ‘process’ of engagement and trying to just get to the part where they are officially legal will completely understand what this couple is going through and if you haven’t yet – consider this your warning LOL! It’s also a good story for those who have someone close to them that is getting married because there are so many stereotypes in this novel it kind of forces you to hold up a mirror to see if you’re THAT person who ends up being written about in Dear Prudence.
There was so much humor in this but what I really loved was how the author wrote her characters not to have the typical Bridezilla, let’s constantly fight kind of relationship but instead they seemed to take it all in stride and understand the wedding isn’t as important as the relationship. The alternating points of view between the couple really helped give a wide picture of how everyone was feeling and particularly trying to put together a wedding getting to see the guy’s pov was interesting.
Ringbloom is such a fun author to read that you can’t go wrong picking up one of her books to enjoy this summer.
Thank you to Netgalley and Ryan Ringbloom for allowing me to review this book.
