Miss Responsibility meets Mr. Reckless
With her bridezilla friend on a DIY project rampage, bridesmaid Jane Denning will do anything to escape - even if it means babysitting the groom's troublemaker brother before the wedding. It should be a piece of cake, except the "cake" is a sarcastic former soldier who is 100% wicked hotness and absolutely off-limits.

Cameron MacKinnon is ready to let loose after returning from his deployment. But first he'll have to sweet talk the ultra-responsible Jane into taking a walk on the wild side. Turns out, riling her up is the best time he's had in years. But what happens when the fun and games start to turn into something real?



As a huge wedding movie fan, I was so excited to start this series. Who doesn't love a good bridesmaid story where the bridesmaid falls in love with the groom's brother?

Jane Dennings is thrilled one of her good friends is getting married and asked her to be a bridesmaid, but she'll do anything to get out of the insane DIY rampage the bride has gone on. That means when the bride begs one of her friends to babysit the groom's troublemaker brother, Jane immediately volunteers. Cameron MacKinnon is aware of his bad reputation and is too tired to do anything about it. Especially when he comes home from military on not so honorable terms. He wants to let loose and have fun now that he's back home, but a stubborn bridesmaid won't leave him alone. As they spend more time together and Jane takes her job of babysitting too seriously, Cameron is ready to play some games and have some fun. 

Like I said, I love a good wedding story, so the whole atmosphere of this book was just so fun. I loved how every chapter was a countdown to the wedding and Jane was doing anything she could to get out of the crazy prep the bride was obsessed with. I enjoyed the dynamic between Jane and the other bridesmaids and how the author set up the whole world so well that, halfway through the book, I was already excited to get to book two to read about another one of the bridesmaids! 

With weddings come awkward family relationships, and Cameron was definitely in an awkward situation with his brother. I really loved Cameron's character and how there were so many layers to him. We got to see those layers as Jane got to know him more and it was cute how he started to fall for Jane when he wasn't that impressed with her when they first met. Jane's determination to keep an eye on Cameron was so funny and I liked how their relationship started out on the fun side. 

Overall, I really loved this book and think it's the perfect book to read during wedding season! I adored the main couple, especially how Cameron was in the military and dealing with his own trauma from what he went through, and how there was so much more to him than met the eye. For an adorable romance with a fantastic main couple, you need to pick this up!
