Was the wedding of their dreams about to become a living nightmare?
For those who fell in love with Julia and Nathan in Serendipity, see how their story continues to unfold in this sweet, funny and sexy novella.
After overcoming all of the obstacles in pursuit of their happily ever after, Julia and Nathan are determined to plan their dream wedding in just six months time. But the path isn’t as smooth as they had hoped, with bumps in the road that include Julia’s bossy twin sister, a moody bridesmaid, and Julia’s own obsession with perfection. In the end, will love truly be all she and Nathan need, or will they need a little help from their friends along the way?
Goes down as another off my Bookworm Bingo Challenge – A book by an author you love but haven’t read. Come on you know you want to check out a great series so why not start with this one.
Have loved this series right from the start and love that we have a chance to go back and catch up with Julia and Nate to see how they pulled together a wedding in six months. Talk about stressful. Also great that it happens around all the other stories too. Cool if you’ve read them first because you can gauge why someone reacts a certain way. Also by what certain people are doing while the story focuses on the present and not where they might have snuck off. Lipstick being smudged by a certain hot devil perhaps! So I would almost say leave this till last. That way you get to start and finish the series with the same couple.
Oh the craziness that can happen with planning a wedding while trying to get it all done on your own. It was quite funny to see Julia get so flustered and unlike herself. She might have started out ok but nearer the date things started to take a turn for the worse. I mean she actually wore sweatpants people!! You know that she would have to have been almost too far-gone into bridezilla mode with planning to get to that stage. Good job her prince charming – with an idea from Ian and some little helpers – steps in to save the day by sweeping her off her feet and giving her back the calm she had been missing. Poor Nate was feeling a little neglected at the time but his first priority was always to be giving his woman back her peace of mind. Once she realized just what she’d been missing out on too – with having her head too full of wedding stuff – she made sure that they more than made up for lost time. Hot as hot as ever people. Though would you really expect anything less?
Loved Tessa and Ian’s story so it’s always good to catch up and see more of them. He is such a gentleman but you know the naughty things he gets up to with his very willing girlfriend. He likes that Julia gave her a few tricks too – flowers as a thank you anyone. Angela and her mystery devil man subtly play their parts within this one. From this you know their story is intriguing and you’d be right so hold on to your hats for this hot devil of a man. Now Lauren and Ben’s story is a lot longer than you would first think. Oh how our carefree girl seems to be one thing but we know is another. The life and soul of the party perhaps, just not with a new man in every place as she might make out. Her heart belongs to the man of her past which you hope soon with be part of her present – fingers crossed anyway. You just wonder how it took everyone else so long to put two and two together. She was kind of spoon-feeding them clues to her discomfort. Sasha pops up with bachelorette party with her calming presence, as does Courtney with her crazy coloured hair of the week; hope she pops up again with the gang because she’s a right laugh. Almost manages to drink Lauren under the table and that’s no mean feet.
So lets get ready for our happily ever after with a couple that was meant to be from the first look.
