Review: Bridesmaid Blues by Boone Brux

Bridesmaid Blues (Entangled Lovestruck) (Wedding Favors) - Boone Brux

Maid-of-Honor Dani Brown can handle anything that comes her way when it comes to her best friend's wedding. That is, until the bride asks for a huge favor-Dani needs to distract the best man, who happens to be Dani's ex. The ex she has fantasized dismembering for a year now. The ex she'll have to suck it up and play nice with if this wedding is to go off without a hitch.

Businessman Jamie Kingsland is back in Seattle for a wedding. There's just one problem - the maid of honor wants him dead. Except she doesn't. Even though he knows he broke her heart last year when things got too serious and he panicked and left, she's being way too nice about it now. And it scares him.

Something is up with his favorite bridesmaid, and he's determined to find out what...

 

If you're looking for a quick, fun, steamy read then this is definitely the book for you. While there weren't any surprises or twists,  I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Dani and Jamie's relationship. It was predictable but light and sweet. 

 

In typical second-chance-love type stories, Jamie is our "villain" at the beginning of the story. After breaking Dani's heart he comes back into her life due to a mutual friends wedding and of course the usual chaos and chemistry ensues. He is flawed and a bit immature when dealing with his family and job issues, but it gave him room to improve so it worked well for the story. 

 

Dani seems like a typical twenty-something girl who is just trying to get over her ex by not getting over him at all. She is clumsy, funny and real and it was easy to get engrossed in her thoughts. I recommend picking this up when you're in the mood for a lighthearted romance.

 

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion.
