It's all fun and games...until someone's heart is broken.
They're not kids anymore, but Milo Caro is certain that Colton Mathews will only see her as his best friend's little sister for the rest of their lives. After all, he made that clear the night before she left for college. But four years later, her brother is getting married and Colt's the best man - and guess who is the best man's last-minute date?
Milo vows to use the wedding to either claim the smoldering firefighter's heart or douse this torch for good. When Max - her best friend from college, who may be carrying a torch of his own - crashes the party, they devise a plan to make Colt see what he's missing. But after Colt catches on, he decides to cook up his own revenge.
Now it's personal. Colt and Milo are at war, and between Max's questionable acting methods, an unfortunate trip to jail, and a maniacal fiancée, what could possibly go right?
I laughed so much my side hurt!
This book had me in stitches. Rachel Van Dyken is an amazing storyteller and this book is reminiscent of The Bet, the very first book of hers I read. It is certainly different from her Elite series, another current favorite, which is organized crime based and more dramatic. It was really refreshing to read this book and relax.
I love to laugh, and I was doing it constantly while reading this book. In fact I can say I enjoyed the humor more than I enjoyed the romance. Of course I was rooting for Milo and Colton to get together and what better opportunity than Jason's wedding? (Jason is Milo's brother and Colton's best friend.) It seemed like it was never going to happen and Max, Milo's best friend was finally going to steal her away. Of course as it turned out, Colton wasn't as indifferent as Milo believed, but she didn't find out easily.
I can not believe how clueless the majority of the characters in this book were. It really seemed like the only one who knew what was going on was Grandma and she wasn't mentally all there! Everything was hilarious at first but as the plot got thicker and thicker, it got crazier, and I began to get tired of the antics. It felt like Milo and Colton figuring out their feelings for one another took the backseat and the craziness that was Jason's wedding took over.
There were times when I wanted to shake Colton, Max, and Jason. Then there was poor Reid who may have had the worst time out of all of them. The guys could be infuriating, but they had the best intentions. There were some great lines in this book. Of course there was also great use of imagery. It was very easy to picture everything going on in the book. This is a comedy of errors, plans gone awry, and misconceptions with a dash of romance. If you're in need of a mood lifter or a laugh, this book is a great choice!
