Book Review - Down with Love by Kate Meader

ABOUT THE BOOK


Sparks fly when the hot-shot divorce lawyer meets the high-powered wedding planner. The only question is, what kind?

If you ever get married, remember my name: Max Henderson. In my line of work, you acquire a certain perspective on supposedly everlasting unions. . . .

1. Pre-nups are your friend. 
2. The person you married is not the person you’re divorcing. 
3. And I hope you didn’t spend much on the wedding because that was one helluva waste of hard-earned cash, wasn’t it? 

But some guys are willing to take a chance. Like my brother, who thinks he’s going to ride off into the sunset with the woman of his dreams in a haze of glitter on unicorns. And the wedding planner—the green-eyed beauty who makes a living convincing suckers to shell out thousands of dollars on centerpieces—is raking it in on this matrimonial monstrosity. 

The thing is, Charlie Love is not unlike me. We’re both cogs in the wedding-industrial complex. As the best man, I know her game—and I can play it better than her. But after one scorching, unexpected kiss, I’m thinking I might just want to get played.

REVIEW


This is definitely a romantic comedy.  The banter between the characters makes the story flow easily and Charlie and Max have more than just sexual chemistry that drive their attraction and the story.  Don't get me wrong, there is plenty of heat, but there is so much more to this story beyond that.  I recommend this for anyone looking for a fun weekend read.

OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
