Best Man for the Wedding Planner by Donna Alward is the 1st book in her Marrying a Millionaire duet. We meet our heroine and wedding planner, Adele Hawthorne from the start, as she is in last minute preparations for a wedding. Adele is in for a shock when the bride to be introduces her to the best man, who happens to be her ex- fiancée, whose heart she broke three years earlier, when she left him. Dan Brimicombe, our hero, is not too happy to see the woman who walked out on him. Forced to say hello, Dan still feels the hurt and anger seeing Adele. He does treat her coldly, but Adele understands and tries to keep her distance, espescially since she never told him the truth about why she left. Adele, had a bout with cancer, and walked away from Dan to save him the agony of what her future may hold; including the inability of having children. When problems come up the day before the wedding, Adele is beside herself, as a bad flu is going around, causing vendors/bakers/bands to drop out. Dan, who discovers he still has feelings for Adele, offers his help, seeing that she is in over her head, not to mention she is now getting sick. As she accepts his offer to help, their chemistry together is still hot, but each try to hide how they feel, but slowly a friendship begins, which leads to them both knowing that their love for each other is still very much alive. Can Dan trust Adele? Will Adele tell Dan the real reason she left? Best Man for the Wedding Planner was a sweet, second chance romance, which Donna Alward wrote so well. This was a simple romance between two people who need to reveal their secrets and learn to trust each other. Adele and Dan did made a great couple, but earlier there looked like there would be no hope for them, but true love can always bring people together. If you enjoy sweet pure romances, nice couple, then I suggest you read Best Man for the Wedding Planner.

In the midst of pulling off a dream wedding for a client Adele Hawthorne is is thrown for a loop when she meets their chosen best man... Dan Brimicombe, the same Dan that use to belong to her, until she walked away from him eight years ago. She thought leaving him was the hardest thing she had ever had to do, but facing him again after all these years is by far worse on her heart, especially when she realizes that there is still a lot of love in there for him! The moment Dan's eyes landed on Adele he was taken with her all over again, but his head isn't so happy to see her again, it keeps telling him to run in the other direction. She broke his heart in two eight years ago, and since that day he has wondered what her real reason was for leaving, he knows she wasn't being completely honest when she said goodbye. He wants answers, but he also can't handle all the sparks that start flying when she comes close, so he decides to avoid her.... which happens to be easier said then done! Best Man for the Wedding Planner is a sweet little read that will do good things for your heart! The instant I met these wonderful characters I found myself smitten, and I couldn't help but root them on. This was a refreshing change of pace for me, with it's light and fun story line, it kept me engaged and smiling! Highly recommend! I requested an advanced copy of this title from the publisher, and I am voluntarily leaving my honest opinion.

Adele and Dan were once lovers, but meet again eight years following the break up. The emotional investment they both thought was done and gone, buried deep in their psyche, has roared back to life. But along with it is intense longing, hurt, betrayal and anger. This couple has a lot or work to do if they even stand a remote chance of getting back together. Intense, emotional stories are what Alward does so well. She finds a way to inject deep longing in so many of her stories and this one is no different. Dan has showed up in town to serve as a best man. Neither expected to see their ex at the beginning of this story. But once it has happened they both have a boat load of emotions to work through even to reach a place of status quo. They initially decide they are looking for closure, but is it really closure or is it a new beginning that their hearts want?

Best Man for the Wedding Planner by Donna Alward Marrying a Millionaire #2 I really felt for both Adele and Dan as I read their story of love and loss that might have the potential for love in the future. The two broke up before college ended and the reasons that it happened were ones I could understand but really wished had been handled differently BUT one cannot undo what has been done in the past because one lives in the present. And, that said...I do understand the reason for the decisions made at the time in spite of what I wished had happened instead. Adele is a wedding planner creating a perfect wedding when in walks the man she thought was “the one” when in college...and...he is the best man at the wedding she is in charge of. With virulent flu going around causing some glitches and a few other catastrophes averted (with and without Dan’s help) the two do eventually spend some quality time together and discuss not only the past but the potential of a future together. It is not smooth sailing for either one of them but it is very realistic and times gritty and definitely poignant. There were times I want to sit Adele down and talk to her and more than one time I wish I could undo a few of the choices she made both in the past and in the present… The fact that I felt and cared and became involved with the characters indicates the writing ability of this author and makes me realize more and more how much I look forward to reading each one of her books as they come out. Thank you to the author and Jenna Bayley-Burke for the ARC – this is my honest review. 4.5 Stars

This story is one that will touch your hearts. The story centers around Adele Hawthorne and Dan Brimicombe. Eight years ago she broke his heart when she left him after three years together. Now he is a CFO for a company in Toronto and she is a wedding planner near Banff. When she is introduced to the best man of her latest wedding, they are both shocked to meet again. This reunion stirs feelings that were dormant, anger from Dan for her rejection, and realization that their love is still alive. But Adele has secrets and Dan doesn’t trust her . Can they be honest and find their second chance in love or will this meeting be one of closure so they can each move on with their lives? The story is at times heartbreaking, but also heartwarming. The plot is engaging and the characters complex. Another winner from this very talented author. I was entrusted a copy of this book. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
