Kate Massie has big dreams-they just haven't worked out. Yet. In the meantime, she spends her days clerking for a judge and her nights fantasizing about her tall, dark, and sexy gym crush. So when she runs into him one night, she's shocked to realize he was her shy, nerdy junior-prom date. But that isn't where the surprises end . . .

James Abell needs a date to his sister's wedding. So when Kate agrees, he's relieved . . . until one little lie turns their wedding date into a full-blown fake relationship. Only it doesn't feel fake-not the toe-curling kisses and definitely not the electricity. Neither of them is looking for something real . . . but they just might fall for their own little white lie.

The Wedding Date by Kelly Eadon was a fast and flirty little book. I enjoyed the personalities of both Kate and James. I love the whole nerdy guy turned hunk thing. It added a little extra cuteness to James' character. His family stresses him out, but I think they are bunches of fun. Count me in at an Abell get together any day. I think Kate feels the same way. There were cute and funny moments, and there were more serious moments within the story, but through all the moments it was very hard to put this book down. I'm not sure if this will be a series, but if it is, I have to read the other books too! The ARC of The Wedding Date by Kelly Eadon was kindly provided to me by the publisher through Net Galley for review. The opinions are my own.

4.5 Stars Kate is a fun, quirky lawyer who can’t seem to catch a break. She lost the job she thought she had, broke up with her snobby boyfriend, and had to move back to her hometown to take a clerkship instead of a prosecuting job. A few perks followed her. She got to live with her best friend, Beth. Her guy bff, Ryan, brought her doughnuts whenever he screwed up, which was often. Lastly, she got to stare at an Adonis at the gym. James noticed Kate too. It had been ten years since his friend begged Kate to go with him to the junior prom when James’ date backed out at the last minute. He’d changed dramatically since then. Not a gangly teen anymore, he morphed into a cut and fit aerospace engineer. Once they realize who each other are thanks to their meddling mutual friend at the gym, Kate agrees to go out to drinks with a group. When Kate learns James needs a date to his sisters society wedding, she offers herself up. What starts as two semi-friends going to a wedding turns into a fake relationship when James’ mother gets a bit of wrong information. I fell in love with Kate instantly. She is a well defined character who had a rough childhood, but came out wanting more for her life than to wallow in circumstance. James was a slow love for me. I wasn’t sure if he was going to be a little uptight coming from his high society family or the rebel. He turned out to be a good combination of both. A man with manners, passion, and an ability to be the partner Kate really needed. Often in romance novels, there are a few glitches along the road to a happily ever after. One such glitch is James’ ex with huge anxiety problem, Brooke. When Kate hears Brooke is single again, I assumed Kate would keep it to herself. I love that I was wrong. It was an unexpected surprise that I love this author for! The Wedding Date is not the typical tale of fake romance. It’s a journey of discovery while falling in love with your soul mate. I thank Kelly Eadon for taking me on this journey with her. I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review.

This is another one of those times when I wished the couple would just talk to each other more, but I’m pleased to say Eadon handles it in a way that never made me want to smack either of them :) Usually these things just frustrate me but she makes it work. There are little points of drama here and there throughout the story but nothing was ever too big. Kate and James get together under false circumstances and jump straight into a pretend relationship so they skip a lot of the get-to-know-you steps. The crash course method of dating seems to work for them though (outside of that pesky sharing thoughts and feelings thing) … for the most part. But that’s where those small bits of drama comes in. Because they skipped over the more traditional parts, there are things about both of them that would have come up but instead bites them on the behinds. With more time together and a trust built up between them, that’s where the good communications skills would have fixed it but without it there’s a bit of trouble. Plus everyone has baggage, it’s just that with the speed that things happen it seems heavier here :) and Eadon does a great job of resolving everything smoothly. A fun story of a backwards romance, The Wedding Date is entertaining and best of all not too frustrating. The couple has their issues but they come across as real and the resolution is smooth.

This was such a wonderful book. I have always loved stories like this, where something unexpected turns into so much more, and it was topped off by the fact that they knew each other growing up. As we grow up, we dream of getting the chance to be with the one we crushed on or someone we trusted, this story gives you a chance to feel what that could be like, even when you didn't know it was happening. I loved the characters. They were very down to earth, real and just what you want to see when you are reading about an average, everyday person. I liked that they were easy to get on with and that I wanted to get to know them, and to know their story. I hardly knew our leading lady and I already wanted to find her someone special as I really connected with her. It was brilliant that the two bumped into each other and things just went from there. The fact that they were willing to help each other out, and catch up on old times is exactly what I love to see happening. That made it even more hilarious when things gotten taken out of proportion by those around them. The more they got it wrong, the more the two realised something was right. The pace was excellent, as it kept things moving and kept the humour up, throughout the read. I found that made it easy to jump into their world and not want to leave. I did just that. Overall, this is a funny, light-hearted read that tickles your inner romantic. I recommend it for a great evening read. **I received this book in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.

Hott Review: What I liked: The Wedding Date is an excellent contemporary romance. I really enjoyed watching Kate and James work together to make their relationship seem real while they each secretly fell in love. It was adorable and a book to remember. What I didn’t like: The only things I didn’t love about The Wedding Date are the foul language and the steam. The language wasn’t prevalent but more than I thought necessary. The steam, well, the entire book was pretty steamy but it wasn’t terribly graphic. With the exception of one or two pages it was just sexy steaminess.

3.5 stars The Wedding Date was a fun and enjoyable read. I enjoyed the storyline, it was well written with great characters that you could easily connect with. I found both Kate and James engaging, fun, and they made it easy for me to fall in love with. Kate and James had great chemistry and loved how this wasn't a case of instalove, sure they were attracted to each other from the get go but the deeper, longer lasting feelings took time to develop which I appreciated. This is Kelly Eadon's debut novel, I was impressed with her writing and her characters. Looking forward to reading more from this talented author.

Kate and James go back to high school and prom. So when they see one another again it is with surprise. And a ton of sparks flying..... James has always thought Kate was hot. Now he thinks she should hand out ice. He is trying to figure out how to approach her when fate takes over. Kate wants to stop dreaming about him. Well, maybe. He is just so sexy and what is a girl to do? She agrees to help him, that's what. Now, maybe if some of the fake could be real? This is a seriously sexy read. I was thrilled for the characters and excited to get to the end. Such a sweet and hot story. ***This ARC copy was given in exchange for an honest review.
