Hosting her brother’s wedding for an MVP guest list is the challenge of Jess Canning’s life. Already the family screw-up, she can’t afford to fail. And nobody (nobody!) can learn of the colossal mistake she made with the best man during a weak moment last spring. It was wrong, and there will not be a repeat. Absolutely not. Even if he is the sexiest thing on two legs.
Blake Riley sees the wedding as fate’s gift to him. Jess is the maid of honor and he’s the best man? Let the games begin. So what if he’s facing a little (fine, a lot) of resistance? He just needs to convince the stubborn blonde that he’s really a good boy with a bad rap. Luckily, every professional hockey player knows that you’ve got to make an effort if you want to score.
But Jess has more pressing issues to deal with than sexy-times with a giant man-child. Such as: Will the ceremony start on time, even though someone got grandma drunk? Does glitter ever belong at a wedding? And is it wrong to murder the best man?
Caution: May cause accidental aspiration of tea or coffee. Do not read in a public place where loud laughter is inappropriate. Contains hot but hilarious hockey players, puppy cuddling and a snarky pair of underwear.
Oh, how I loved this book! I admit I was a bit lost in the first few parts because the book mentioned secondary characters who happened to be from Him and I didn’t read Him! Shame! Anyways, this was such an enjoyable, sexy friends-with-benefits read.
I loved Blake Riley and Jessica “Jess” Canning’s story. I simply can’t get enough of their sizzling chemistry and their romantic development which was never hurried nor dragged. I loved how they started out as acquaintances then progressed to f*ck buddies, then friends-with-benefits, then lovers. I ship this couple like nobody’s business!
Yes, it may sound stereotypical but I did enjoy it. It helps when the authors behind the story really know how to tickle the readers’ hearts and Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy were able to do it for me.
Every scene was cute and the sexy times were scorching. Jess’s character development was also well-done. She started off as someone who’s unsure of herself and everything that she does but later on, she became the best version of herself.
If you love sexy and light sports romance books with friends-with-benefits tropes, this is the best choice. I think it’s not necessary to read Him to enjoy this novel, but it’s still recommended. 🙂 Now I will certainly read the upcoming books in this series!
