Wedding planner Avery Crosslin may be a rising star in Houston society, but she doesn't believe in love--at least not for herself. When she meets wealthy bachelor Joe Travis and mistakes him for a wedding photographer, she has no intention of letting him sweep her off her feet. But Joe is a man who goes after what he wants, and Avery can't resist the temptation of a sexy southern charmer and a hot summer evening.

After a one night stand, however, Avery is determined to keep it from happening again. A man like Joe can only mean trouble for a woman like her, and she can't afford distractions. She's been hired to plan the wedding of the year--a make-or-break event.

But complications start piling up fast, putting the wedding in jeopardy, especially when shocking secrets of the bride come to light. And as Joe makes it clear that he's not going to give up easily, Avery is forced to confront the insecurities and beliefs that stem from a past she would do anything to forget.

The situation reaches a breaking point, and Avery faces the toughest choice of her life. Only by putting her career on the line and risking everything--including her well-guarded heart--will she find out what matters most.


Review

After like a year I finally picked this up. It isn't my favorite in the series, but it was a solid book. Plus, it was nice to spend time with the Travis family again.

Avery was an interesting POV character. She's very realistic in appearance and has some of the same insecurities as me. I appreciate that she is open to some change in her appearance but for herself not someone else.

Joe was truly amazing and I wish we got his POV. He seems like such a beta and that makes me want to see more about his life perspective. He's such a kind and generous guy.

They do have chemistry and a nice relationship. It's not often that you see characters get to know each other. But it could've been more in depth when they had to face conflict.

Actually that's how the whole book felt. There were a lot of interesting story-lines, but they weren't explored as much as I would've liked. The other books in this series had a lot of emotional depth which is why it was a little bit of a let down from this one.

But it's still a decent Lisa Kleypas book and I recommend it.

Thanks for reading!
