## Bad. Really bad. The synopsis sounded so good, but the writing left a lot to be desired. First off, the writing was so incredibly corny. When the hero describes his dad to the heroine, he says: "he's swell". Phrases like: "Oh, gosh darn" and "she's so miffed".....etc. It was too much. Also, the way they hero and heroine put up with the ex-girlfriend was rediculous. She was in the book just as much as the heroine. She was mean, cruel and manipulative. And they just tolerated it. It was extremely frustrating. Finally, the thing that bothered me the most was that the h/h had no sexual chemistry. That is a deal breaker for me. They were more like brother and sister. Please don't waste your money. I wish I hadn't.

I received an eARC copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. Here is my honest review.
I'm not sure why, but romance stories that begin with a marriage of convenience have always been a favorite of mine. I enjoy reading romance novels for a few reasons: they tend to be very formulaic so they don't require very much mental focus and they always have a happy ending. The Wedding Hazard was easy to read and I did enjoy it. However, it isn't the best example of a marriage of convenience romance that I have read. Typically there is some event/person/misunderstanding that comes between a couple and they are apart for a length of time yet this story lacked that. I am still not sure how I feel about that missing element. It's not a deal-breaker as far as a story goes, but it does leave me feeling as if something is missing. Another flaw is that the characters could be more developed and the relationship between Thor and Ashley barely scratches the surface.
I gave this book: ¿
(I would technically give it 1.5 stars)

Ashley Clair is devastated with her beloved father dies of cancer. She drives to Eagle Toe to let her estranged mother know the news, but what she finds at her childhood scares her enough that she seeks help and protection from a security expert. Thor Garrison runs a small security firm in town and when Ashley walks through his door, he wants nothing more than to protect the beautiful young woman. Throw in an attempted kidnapping, a crazy ex-girlfriend and an overbearing mother and you have a fast-paced mystery, thriller and a budding romance that will keep you turning the pages. I loved this story especially the developing romance between Ashley and Thor. It was a wonderful slow build-up of their feelings for each other despite their "marriage of convenience" contract. The Britney Beth character added much to the story with her obsession of marrying Thor herself. The dialogue is snappy and, of course, who doesn't love a great dog in the story. Can't wait to see what the author has planned for the next story in the Colorado Billionaires series. All in all, this is a delightful read and fans of romance will thoroughly enjoy it. Highly Recommended.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Regina Duke has done it again! A lovely new addition to the series, but no need to have read the first book set in Eagle's Toe (The Wedding Wager) to thoroughly enjoy this one.
The Wedding Hazard is a wonderful adventure in love, trust, and dealing with lunatic exes. Ashley needs help, and Thor is there to provide, whether she's quite sure she wants him to or not.
Can't wait to read more of the adventures of residents of Eagle's Toe, Colorado. It's wonderful to see how friends from the earlier book are doing, and learn a bit more about the town each time.

Loved it! Wonderfully believable and appealing characters, great plot, beautifully written. It's warm and romantic without being syrupy, and the author does an excellent job with the settings. I didn't want to put it down.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Highly enjoyable "Marriage of Convenience"
When Ashley returns to her home-town of Eagle's Toe, looking for her estranged mother, the last thing she expects is to be frightened out of her wits. Lucky for us she is, however, because it leads her to security specialist Thor, his to-die-for luxury cabin, and a cast of characters (including an absolutely wicked ex-girlfriend) that load "The Wedding Hazard" with fun.
I've enjoyed all Regina Duke's romances, which are well written, full of atmosphere and snappy dialog, and even throw out the occasional plot twist or two. "Wedding Hazard" not only meets this bar but crosses it with a likable couple that stumble first into each other's company and then, naturally into each other's arms. A must read for any lover of "marriage of convenience" or sweet contemporary romance
