Overview

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to join love and laughter in this sexy romantic comedy with a chick lit attitude!

Burke Winslow stands at the altar, ready to marry his business partner in a marriage of convenience. The minister solemnly asks: "If anyone here knows why this man and this woman shouldn't be joined in holy matrimony, let him speak now or forever hold his peace."

A rain-soaked, bedraggled Ally Fletcher limps down the aisle and shouts, "Stop the wedding!"

What follows is a funny, sexy romp that proves when there's love, passion never dies, it just smolders away until you toss some gasoline on it. Burke and Ally discover a rekindled passion that threatens to scorch them when they find themselves locked in a marriage - - of inconvenience!

With a cagey grandfather pulling Burke's strings, and an equally cagey grandmother manipulating Ally, can these two battling lovers peel away the layers of the past and discover the truth about their love and passion? Will the truth free them or put them asunder?

Throw in a pretend boyfriend for Ally and a scorned business partner left at the altar, and you have a rollicking good time - - Texas style! Sassy, sexy, and funny!

Editorial Reviews

In Print - Cheryl Bolen
Reeves had me laughing like crazy in the first chapter. I love, love, love this book. It's funny and very romantic. Romantic comedy at its best.
Amazon Review - Elaine Chase
It was easy to fall instantly in love with Ally Fletcher as she stops her ex-husband, Burke Winslow's marriage of convenience wedding. There she was, dripping wet, limping, covered with mud...and the news that Burke was still married to her!

What a fun, sexy read! I kept turning the pages and laughing as Burke and Ally finally realize they were "Still the One" for each other. And the fire had been smoldering and ready to explode even after six years apart.

Throw in some fantast
Amazon - C. Wicklund
Ally Fletcher and Burke Winslow have a shared past, a marriage when they were young and unprepared to handle the responsibilities of a grownup relationship. Now Burke is getting married again, but there's a sudden hitch to his plan. A divorce he thought was finalized six years ago apparently didn't happen, and he finds himself standing at the altar, facing a past he's never been able to forget. ... another enjoyable read from Joan Reeves.... Her hallmark humor is very much in evidence....

Hello! I'm Joan Reeves. I write funny, sexy, romances because I think the world needs more love and laughter. And passion! And committed relationships!

TOP 10 REASONS TO BUY A BOOK BY JOAN REEVES

10. Joan Reeves writes funny! Duh!

9. Joan Reeves writes sexy! Another Duh!

8. Joan Reeves is an overnight success, and it only took her 25 years!

7. Joan Reeves writes stories that are like a "little vacation between the covers of a book."

6. Joan Reeves has a daughter getting married next spring. She can use the bucks. Seriously, do you know how much weddings cost?

5. Joan Reeves believes in the Weed Whacker Theory of Success. "Life is a big field of weeds. In the center of this giant patch of weeds is something we want--something called success. We're all on paths that resemble the spokes of a wheel, trying to get to the hub. Some of us have machetes, some have riding lawn mowers. Me? I'm armed with a rusty pocket knife." I need all the help I can get. Buy my book! Please?

4. Joan Reeves is basically lazy. If you don't buy her books, she'll stop writing and while away the hours reading her competitors' books, watching WHAT NOT TO WEAR (she could be a poster girl), cheesy sci fi movies, BUFFY reruns, and THE CLOSER--just to name a few of her TV addictions. Then she'll gain 50 pounds from eating Ding Dongs (required snack of The Closer), mope around the house complaining that she's fat, spend all her remaining book sale money on a new wardrobe, refuse to wear the new clothes because they're ugly, join a nudist colony, and get expelled because she'll do nothing but gripe and moan all day and who wants to see a naked fat woman complaining about how she could have been a contender?

3. Joan Reeves writes stories that will make you feel good.

2. Joan Reeves needs a new pair of shoes. Some of those really cute round-toe Mary Jane's at DSW and maybe a pair of gold evening shoes because they're so darn sexy. But, she can't support her shoe addiction without book sales. That's where you come in!

1. Joan Reeves writes stories that leave you with a smile.

Thank you for your consideration! In closing, I leave you with my Vision Statement, wise words by which I live. "It's never too late to live happily ever after."

Best Wishes,
Joan Reeves
