Agreeing to go to a wedding with a guy she gets stuck with in an elevator is something Alexa Monroe wouldn’t normally do. She’s definitely not the spontaneous type. But there’s something about Drew Nichols that’s too hard to resist.
Drew has never found it hard to meet women—or to know just when to leave them. But now, on the eve of his ex’s wedding festivities, he’s minus a plus-one…until a power outage strands him with the perfect candidate for a fake girlfriend.
From the best man’s toast to the bouquet toss, Alexa and Drew have more fun than they ever thought possible. But before they know it, Drew has to fly back to Los Angeles and his job as a pediatric surgeon, and Alexa heads home to Berkley, where she’s they mayor’s chief of staff—and neither of them can stop thinking about the other.
They’re just two high-powered professionals on a collision course toward the long-distance dating disaster of the century—or closing the gap between what they think they need and what they truly want…
The Wedding Date was a fun and fast-paced romance novel. I read this all in one night. It’s how I spent the first few hours of my birthday. I started it right after midnight because it’s on my TBR for the Disney Readathon. I flew through it.
I adored the chemistry between Drew and Alexa. Fake dating is a trope I didn’t know I loved until recently. I had so much fun with the fake dating at the wedding and things just escalated from there. I loved that the sex scenes weren’t overly descriptive, so this would be a good one for readers that like romance but not smut.
I didn’t like how self-conscious and how hard Alexa was on herself. She’s constantly pointing out the things that she thinks are wrong with her. Despite the fact that she’s a successful and beautiful woman, she’s so hard on herself and I didn’t love that. I also didn’t love Drew’s reactions to some things. He often tells his best friend to ‘fuck off’ and he overreacts to a lot of things. He seems almost to have some anger issues which is never really addressed.
Overall, The Wedding Date was a good time. I found myself smiling and laughing and just all around enjoying it. I haven’t been reading too much adult romance and this book made me want to pick up any and all of my Nora Roberts books. If you’re looking for a quick and fun romance, this is the one for you.
Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
