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.
“I have always believed every bride should wear a gown reflective of her personality and tastes. I am also a proponent of women of any size being fashionable and stylish. But there is always an exception to every rule. Lines need to be drawn sometimes. It is possible that three hundred pounds of satin and organza in colors vivid enough to produce light may be the place to draw one.”
While Tyler Warren, the heroine of the story, helps others achieve marital bliss, she struggles to find it herself. Enter, or re-enter, Dwayne, her high-school sweetheart who broke her heart.
“I thought I was moving up in the alphabet. Warren gets called last for everything. Davis was near the top. I chuckled out loud at the memory of my young priorities. Once you get out of school, the world is no longer structured in alphabetical order. But at the time, I thought I was scoring a great coup in upward mobility… One day he was my whole world. The next day he wasn’t even on my planet.”
Completing the love triangle is Cabe, her best friend forever who married and split in short order. There were a few other randoms thrown in for good measure (including what has to be the worst date ever imagined). Like other readers, I wasn’t a fan of Dwayne. There is truth in the adage that some guys are better as a memory. He was clearly too narrowly-visioned and ill-suited for Tyler. And, honestly, Cabe isn’t all that healthier for her. Just coming off a divorce, his fragile heart would take him out of the running for me. But, this is a love story after all. Personally, I would have liked to see Tyler spend more time being an strong, independent woman. As she best said herself “What if Charming is just his last name and not his one-word profile?”
I won’t run out to read the next in the series, but I imagine I will get to them in time.
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.
And let us not forget Tyler's dating mishaps. Oh boy! Fate dealt her a dirty hand with the guys she went out with. But I found myself always pulling for one character, hoping Tyler found her way to him.
Did she, or didn't she? You'll just have to read it for yourself to find out!
