From the author of Dictatorship of the Dress comes a new novel about a woman who’s vowed to never walk down the aisle—and the two men who’ll do anything to get her to say “I do”…
“Always a bridesmaid, never a bride” has suited Danica James just fine…until the mysterious man who crashed her sister’s wedding steals her heart, leaves a slice of groom’s cake under her pillow, and then disappears.
Hoping to forget her unforgettable fling, Dani takes a job as a backstage masseuse for a rock music festival, not expecting the tour’s headlining bad boy to make an offer she can’t refuse. Nash Drama needs a fiancée—and fast…
Mick Spencer is the best wedding cake designer in New Hope and the town’s most eligible bachelor. But despite the bevy of bridesmaids he’s sampled, Mick can’t get the evening he spent with Dani out of his mind.
So when she shows up for a cake tasting at the Night Kitchen—with his former best friend’s ring on her finger—Mick vows to charm the woman of his dreams into choosing a sweet and sinful ever after, with him…
Topper's second Much "I Do" About Nothing contemporary is entertaining, but it falls short of the high mark set by Dictatorship of the Dress. When beautiful Dani meets Mick at her sister's wedding, they share one hot night, but he goes missing the next morning, along with many of the wedding gifts. Shortly thereafter, Dani takes a job as a masseuse for famous singer Nash. There's no chemistry between Nash and Dani, but his health and home life are in desperate need of revitalization, and he asks Dani to pretend to be his wife. They head to Nash's hometown to meet a host of predictable characters, including Quinn, the resentful mother of Nash's child. Coincidentally, Mick (who seems to have bedded every women in the county since his unforgettable tryst with Dani) also happens to live in that same town. The constant flipping between Dani and Mick's perspectives is confusing at times, but this tale's secrets and romance satisfy.

I can't tell you how much I enjoy this series. Topper is a master of her craft...carefully weaving a really beautiful story of family, love, and forgiveness.
At one point, I stopped reading. Not because I wasn't enjoying this book, but because if I'm kept reading I would come to the end of the story. I'm hoping there's more to the series. Keep writing Ms Topper. I'm a fan.
