What is Clare Wingate doing? One minute she's suffering in a pretty-in-pink gown she'll never wear again, and the next thing she knows it's morning . . . and she has the nastiest hangover of her life.
To make matters worse, she's wearing nothing but a spritz of Escada and lying next to Sebastian Vaughan . . . her girlhood crush turned sexy, globe-hopping journalist. Somewhere between the toast and the toss of the bouquet she'd gotten herself into a whole lot of trouble.
Clare had the right to go wild—after all, she'd been knocked off her dyed-to-match shoes after finding her own fiancé in a compromising position with the washing machine repairman. Clearly her society wedding is off.
But Sebastian pushed all the wrong buttons—and some of the right ones, too. Clare is in no mood for love—not even for lust—and wants to forget about Sebastian and his six-pack abs ASAP. But he isn't in the mood to go away, and his kiss is impossible to forget.
In this uninspired follow up to Sex, Lies and Online Dating, Gibson layers cliche upon cliche and tops her confection with a heavy frosting of exposition. The result is a tale more sickly than sweet, filled with characters as lively as the figurines atop a wedding cake. The heroine, romance writer Clare Wingate, is your typical good girl who's itching to go bad, and globe-trotting reporter Sebastian Vaughan, a man's man who hates to see a woman cry (almost as much as he hates shopping), is the one person who can draw out her naughty side. Readers may detect a whiff of romantic tension after a less-than-shocking revelation-involving Clare's fiance Lonny, who's got a thing for pastels and a skill for flower arranging-leads a distraught Clare to a drunken encounter with Sebastian. But once Lonny is out of the picture, and commitment-phobic Sebastian agrees to become Clare's friend-with-benefits, the story spins its wheels waiting for Sebastian to realize his true feelings for Clare.

I am in no mood for love
Great book. Will be buying more from this author
I understand painting a picture and going into detail in a book, I love books, that’s my favorite part about a book. This book on the other hand barely had any dialogue between characters and the small dialogue that existed was continuously interrupted by paragraphs, sometimes pages, of descriptions and thoughts that that weren’t even needed. By the time the dialogue continued I forgot what the conversation was about between the characters or I would just skip to the response and continue doing so until the conversation was over. With all the descriptions and thoughts going on, the pages could’ve been filled with the actual events happening instead of the character thinking about the event and taking away even more dialogue, for example the conversation she had with Lonny after he cheated.
Lovely story , must read !!!👍
