Be careful what you wish for...they don't always come true

This was a pleasure to read. Robin Bielman has given us a book that is written well, has a great storyline, characters who are endearing, humour, romance and heartwarming moments combined with those that pull on the heartstrings a little.

Sela and Luke were both wonderful easy to love realistic characters. Sela, a nurse is a homebird; she's kind, compassionate, caring, has never left her hometown and is determined to be the best Maid of Honour her best-friend Vanessa could wish for. Luke is her complete opposite: he's travelled the world as a sports photographer, enjoys the more extreme of sports and dates like-minded women. Not only is he Vanessa's big-brother, Sela's brother Shane's best-friend and the Best Man, he's also the guy who, ten years previously, declared to his team-mates that Sela, who had a huge high-school crush on him, `kissed like a corpse'. Needless to say there's a touch of dislike there, her hurt has never gone away, nor can she forgive him. But Luke has returned home with a secret and Sela works it out...

Even though I had an idea where the story was heading with the whole best man-maid of honour-who-can't-avoid-each-other scenario, there were lots of little surprises thrown in, the sparks flew between Sela and Luke and they complimented each other perfectly. I swooned over Luke, I smiled those little happy smiles at all the lovely heartwarming moments yet at times I wanted to shout at the pair of them to get their act together! There's plenty of build up and `almost moments' between them but when it comes down to the steamy stuff, it's all left to your imagination. And it has fabulous secondary characters who all are integral to the story.

This most definitely a book that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend and I hope Robin Bielman gives us further books in the series as I would love to see more of Shane, who brought humour pretty much every time he opened his mouth.

I received this book as an ARC from the publisher for an honest and unbiased opinion.

This was a sweet romantic story but it bored me to death. It was painfully slow, full of details about the wedding preparations but then no details at all about the most romantic scenes. I am not looking for something too explicit, but this is a romance book so I want to read about the budding romance, their feelings and live experiences. I'd much rather read details about their first time together than pages and pages about how they wrap the wedding favors. Pity because the story could have been much better.

    Can you say sexual tension?  Holy MOSES!  The sexual tension bet

    Can you say sexual tension?  Holy MOSES!  The sexual tension between Sela Sullivan and Luke Watters is thick.  This made for a great story!  
    Sela is best friends with Luke’s younger sister and Luke is best friends with Sela’s older brother.  That being said, any relationship they may want to have with each other is OFF LIMITS!  Sela is also the maid of honor in her best friends wedding.
    Sela and Luke are funny together.  They constantly challenge each other.  Luke & Sela have an undeniable attraction to each other.  Sela is just trying to get through the wedding and then she can be rid of the handsome and pesky Luke.  
    At some point they stop trying to fight it, which is where things get interesting.  I love the story line and how witty these two are together.  Overall, this was a very charming story.

    Entertaining and fun, the story is well written. Perfect to unwind after a hard day.

    Although the author abuse a little of the love anticipation and suspense for my taste. For much of my reading, I rubbed my hands wondering: "will they get together in this scene: Yes/No?". 
    But beware, a good soufflé should not fall. And although, anticipation can be thrilling, because usually the fall is only better, in this romance I felt fooled. Much ado about nothing! Maybe I would have appreciated a little more passion and fire.

    But the author kept me interested during the whole story. While falling for the brother of your best friend is a little cliché.Who has never been interested in a friend of one of his brothers or sisters? This romance will bring some good souvenirs

    A romantic game of cat and mouse in full wedding preparative. A light and fun romance.
