This was actually a really cute rom com, even if there were a few things that would normally be big romance novel turn-offs for me. For example:
On the positive side, I really liked Brek. He was this badass, rock band -managing biker who falls ass-over-elbow for the most buttoned-up, sweater set-wearing financial planner in the history of rom coms, and it was...cute.
I also liked the secondary characters. There was a particularly hilarious scene between Brek’s friend Jase, Velma, and Jase’s Russian grandmother that had me laughing out loud.
Sadly, though, the book lost half a star when it ventured a little too far into 27 Dresses land (if you read the book, you’ll recognize the part I’m talking about—it has to do with the sister’s wedding dress), and another half star for believability. (I mean, there’s no wedding planner alive who would entrust her already fragile business to her biker brother who has zero interest in/knowledge of weddings. Nope. Not buying it for a second.)
But overall, this was a solid, fun, sexy little read featuring cute characters. I’d read other books in the series, and at the end of the day, I can’t really think of a better endorsement than that.
Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
No rehab needed. This one’s clean and sober.
