Book Review - Almost a Wedding by Ruth Cardello

ABOUT THE BOOK


A brand new, standalone spin-off from THE BACHELOR TOWER series, and the second NOVELLA in the Left At The Altar series!!! 

Barrett 

When Paul asked me to be his best man, I didn’t think we’d make it this far. He’s 0 for 3 on engagements, but he says he’s serious this time. 

The moment I meet Audrey, the maid of honor, I’m conflicted. She’s recovering from an injury. She needs my help, but all I want is to help her into my bed. What we have is wild and hot as hell—but that doesn’t mean I’m looking for it to continue past this trip. I’ve worked too hard to get to where I am to let anyone drag me down—but before I know it she’s got me turned around, and chasing after what I swore I’d never want—a chance at forever. 

Audrey

I’m still recovering from ankle surgery after a severe break, but I’m the maid of honor and I refuse to let pain stop me from being part my best friend’s wedding. When I overdo it, I retreat to recover and regroup.

That’s how I meet Barrett. He’s brooding and blunt, but when he picks me up and carries me as if I’m nothing then brings me ice and takes care of me—I’m ready for my first wedding hookup. He is exactly what I need to get my mojo back.

Being bad never felt this good.

When he tells me he's not ready for a relationship I believe him—after all, his best friend just left mine at the altar. Where do we go from there?

Is it wrong to hope for make up sex considering we weren't the ones who broke up?

[title] is the [number] book in the LEFT AT THE ALTAR series in a collaboration of six New York TimesBestselling Authors: J. S. Scott, Ruth Cardello, Raine Miller, Sawyer Bennett, Minx Malone, and Melody Anne.

REVIEW

This novella has a very well-developed story. Ruth Cardello manages to pack an interesting full plot along with complicated characters into a small package. Barrett is a reluctant and cynical hero and Audrey is his opposite with her positivity, but both are very loyal to their respective friends which is what ultimately brings them together. Fans of Cardello’s other works will instantly recognize the humor and charm she brings to all of her books and those new to her writing will certainly start reading her backlog.


OVERALL RATING - 4.5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
