Fans of Rachel Gibson and Jennifer Ryan can rejoice in Cara Connelly's Save the Date series.
It's the most secretive celebrity wedding of the year, and Christine Case is going to be there!
No-nonsense journalist Christine Case still believes a newspaper should inform, not entertain. But when Chris's biggest story blows up in her face, she's out of a job unless she does the one thing she's sworn never to do—infiltrate a celebrity wedding and write an exposé on the happy couple.
A-list heartthrob Dakota Rain loathes the press. So when he hosts his equally famous brother's wedding at his Beverly Hills estate, keeping the vultures at bay is Dakota's top priority—until he meets the sultry singer in the wedding band.
Posing as a singer is no problem for Chris, but when Dakota talks her into a private-island getaway, the hot days—and sizzling nights—make it impossible to go on deceiving him. But what will happen when the media-hating movie star discovers the woman he's falling for is really an undercover reporter?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Christine Case has lived a varied life - she is the daughter of a famous musician and a famous heroic war correspondent. As such, she has been blessed with both an incredible voice and an incredible drive to report the news. Due to a communication error, her last story has ended in scandal and a lawsuit. In order to save her career, she has been instructed to get in to the largest celebrity wedding of the year and report on all of the events. Dakota Rain is the brother of the celebrity that is getting married and has in intense hatred of the press. He is also a A-list celebrity in his own right. After hearing Christy's incredible voice at the wedding when she sang with her father, little does he realize her real occupation as a journalist. Dakota had planned to tag along on his baby brothers honeymoon to his private island and he convinces Christy to go with him. Will he be able to see past his bias on her profession and listen to his heart? The Wedding Band is a lite, fun read that will make you smile and your heart melt. I adore Dakota's many faceted character - his love and rescue of animals melted my heart. I love how Christy finally seems to find herself and be comfortable in her own birthright instead of trying to follow in her parents footsteps. Ms. Connelly's writing is so effortless and flow so incredibly well that you will look up from reading and realize that you have devoured half of the book but never felt the passage of time. I highly recommend The Wedding Band for anyone looking for a wonderful, lite, fun read.
I won this book for a honest review from Goodreads giveaways. I very much enjoyed this book. What do you get from a famous movie star with a big heart for animals and his family and a woman who has famous singer in a band and mother who is a world class news reporter. You do the singing thing with your dad but then decide to do the reporting thing to impress your mom even though she won't realize it due to her having Alzheimers. She get pressured to sing with your dad's bad so go undercover to report on a famous wedding that no reporters is allowed to be at. You see him and fall for him bad but don't think anything of him because he is rich and famous. You have to get out of town to avoid a request for court and end up on his island. He doesn't know you are a reporter and things go really bad while you are there but you both have fallen in love with each other. You quit your job to make amends and try to figure out what you want and he has to realize he really does love you.
