“Falling in love is easy. Staying in love is the trick.”
This was my face after reading this story. I so thought I was going to get a doozy here, but it is a winner!!! This is a low angst, pretty romantic story. I’m a hopeless romantic, and wedding planning with your significant other is hectic and romantic to me. See the cover drew me in first, I love the funny play on the wedding topper. I need to invest in more of Belledonne’s work. She is great. I loved the way her writing flowed. The pacing was good, and even though it’s no sex in the story I still adored it.
Daniel didn’t know what to expect when his best friend forced him to talk to Erik. Erik was the quiet guy at the party reading a book. I loved that part. I honestly had the biggest smile on my face the entire time. The story is told in the past and present tense. We get a look at the couple’s milestones together up until the engagement and once the engagement happens. Then is when Aurora happens. LOL. I love that a wedding app is driving Daniel crazy. I WOULDN’T get once, because those damn checklist will drive people crazy.
In usual form Daniel is wedding crazed. He’s focusing all his energy on planning the wedding and getting lost in it. Reading it we can see when the disconnect or the unhappiness starts to happen. Erik would rather go to city hall. He’s in the middle of his work and planning for the his dig in Sweden. What the author does is great. I love the ability of them communicating. A scene when Erik storms out and of course Daniel assumes the worst had me in giggles. Well not giggles that would look mean. I love the realistic feeling about the story. I love that they compliment each other and I love how they are able to talk and get why each is hurt.
Let’s just say I’m happy without the outcome. Everything happened for a reason.
I won’t give the plot away, but I’m so giddy with excitement for this book. Read the book people. I loved every second of it. I am looking forward to more of her writing, and might need to check her back list out!
