This is a book for chicks who don’t like chick books. It’s freaking hilarious. If you have ever been married or a bridesmaid you can probably relate to a lot of what is in this book. The people Tyler encounters while planning weddings are truly insane.
There were times where I wanted to grab her by the face and shake the crap out of her. She didn’t always make decisions I was happy about, but the overall story itself had me hooked from the first paragraph. Besides, in reality, who makes perfect decisions every time? I wish she had been a bit less of a pushover, but it’s not my book.
I recommend this book to anyone looking for a gut busting laugh that will make you question whether or not you were this insane when you were planning your own wedding. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be glad you don’t have Tyler’s job! If you don’t like romance, but do like to laugh at it, this may be the book for you.
This whatever- it-is is as insubstantial and see through as the dress on the cover. It’s fluffy without much of anything to hold onto, and oh, no! it’s the first in a series. At least it’s calorie free.
I have such a hard time accepting that people actually ‘force’ themselves to finish a book like this. Stop torturing yourself already.
I could not stand her and finally gave up at 65% in the middle of a chapter. That’s how much I don’t care especially after finding out it ends on a cliffhanger and there are two or three more books. No thank you.
Then Cabe, the leading man, started playing mind games with her. He started ripping into her for speaking with her ex, and ragging on said ex for doing things that, quite frankly, were very similar to what he himself had done. I found myself getting very angry with him, lol!
And what's with EVERYONE from her home town dragging her for not being married at the ripe old age of 25?!?! Especially since their own marriages were nothing to write home about?
Honestly, I didn't think either man was good for her. And, while I'm curious to see how the story ends, I'm not sure I can deal with 2 more books.
However, I do hope the author keeps writing. She has a great sense of humor, and I'd love to see that developed more in the future.
1.) At times, I think the author tries too hard to make the book seem more literary than it is, and it doesn't work. The parts about the protagonist "channeling" her "inner Oprah" were cliched and trite.
2.) The ending is completely obvious, and the author really doesn't make much of an effort, in my opinion, to hide that. It's a little frustrating because I felt like I was reading through a lot of extra stuff that I neither needed nor wanted to read just to get to the inevitable conclusion.
3.) Some of the few central plot points/questions are never resolved or answered. For example, why Cabe left Ty to begin with (there's sort of an explanation, but not really an adequate one).
4). Don't read this if you're looking for anything other than a light, Cinderella-esque tale. This is not literature, nor does it (for the most part) pretend to be.
5). At times, the plot drags on unnecessarily or is kind of boring, and the ending could be done a bit better. After waiting for the entire book for that "fairy-tale" (as the main character puts it) ending, it would have been nice for the characters to exchange fervent vows of love and commitment, something a little more than a kiss and the protagonist's epiphany. It sort of felt like after I read through an awful lot to get to the end, the author wrote her ending in a hurry or didn't really thoroughly wrap it up. I didn't expect a marriage proposal, but something more would have been nice.
6). Sometimes, it's hard to understand why the author is so into the leading man. He has plenty of flaws (which is normal--it's just that Tyler makes it clear that she's basically looking for he perfect man throughout the book). Yes, he is a good kisser, good-looking, and enjoys the same activities as Tyler. However, his excessive drinking, lack of (at lest to me) a compelling reason why he left Tyler to begin with, and his erratic behaviors don't necessarily put him in the "Prince Charming" category. It also feels like this is clearly a rebound romance, and I'm not sure how I feel about that or it's future prospects (yes, I know there's more to the series and that it gets serious--not the point.).
1.) If you are looking for a light, fun beach read, this one is a pretty good pick.
2.) Parts of the book make the characters more human and vulnerable, which is nice.
3). The main characters, though not terribly well-developed beyond a mostly superficial level, are likable, interesting, and unique. They even have some lovable quirks. The best friends' characters aren't really developed well, but it's still a fun read.
4). This book gives people a chance to escape and to at least believe that happy endings are possible (if only in fiction).
5). You get more than a peek into the world of wedding planning, much of which is pretty interesting and often funny. There is quite a bit of humor in this book, some of which is pretty funny.
All in all, this book isn't groundbreaking, doesn't deliver any earth-shattering wisdom, and isn't particularly deep, BUT it does offer a fun and interesting read or for those who aren't looking for anything serious. It's not literature, but it's not bad.

I really enjoyed the book. Witty, even inciteful and the style of writing made the story flow easily.
There were a few clips of bridal behaviour that make you cringe, whilst others make you smile.
Tyler is a great heroine and although I wanted to shake her, she came good at the end.
