It began with a cock.
Of the rooster variety.
It ended with a groomsman toppling into the wedding cake.
Heidi hadn’t meant to be a bad bridesmaid. She loved her best friend and the man Kate was marrying.
Who she didn’t love?
The groom’s brother.
The cocky—no pun intended—jerk had made Heidi aware of exactly what he thought of her. That being, she wasn’t worth anything more than a quick romp and a disappearing act before the sun rose.
Fine. Whatever. She’d done her own version of the Disappearing Act on more than one occasion. It didn’t matter that she had thought they had shared something . . . well, something more.
Clearly, she’d been wrong, and now he was dead to her.
Of course, that was before she had to walk down the aisle with him.
Because that’s when all hell broke loose.
Elise Faber is a relatively new author to me and I don’t know why that is. I was hooked on the story that the author wove about Heidi and Brad. Although it is book 11 in the Billionaire's club I was able to read this book as a stand alone, although it has ensured that I read the other books in the series as and when time permits.
Being a bridesmaid at your best friends wedding should be a happy occasion except Heidi has history with the groom’s brother and that is complicating things. Bad Bridesmaid was a fun, quirky story with characters whose story you cannot help but become invested in.
After a one night stand, Heidi left and in doing so unknowingly triggered Brad’s trust issues. He reacts by being a total jerk and then realizes that he has made a mistake and has to work hard to gain her trust and forgiveness.
The banter between them was witty and the chemistry intense. As they embarked on their journey I was cheering for them to get their happily ever after.
