Publisher's Summary

The first in a smart, sizzling new contemporary romance series by USA Today best-selling author Mira Lyn Kelly.

Jase Foster is as loyal and committed as a friend can get - when it comes to the guys, that is. But with women he keeps it casual and experiences what one would call a "high turnover rate".

Emily Klein is beautiful and confident...and has mile-long legs that have been strutting in and out of Jase's life since adolescence, leaving a wake of destruction. As they get paired up time after time as the best man and maid of honor in the upcoming nuptials of all of their best friends, Emily and Jase find their mutual resentment simmering just beneath the surface...right alongside their mutual attraction. Committed to maintaining order for their friends' sakes, they keep their personal loathing for each other under wraps...at least so long as they have an audience. But once they're alone...

Predictable

Got to chapter 21. Nothing interesting sorta just drags on and on. Writing is good. Just wish there were twists and more mysteries through out the story.. Did the author even enjoy writing this book?

Dragged

It hurt to finish this book, I wanted to just give up. I thought maybe I was missing something. Nope. It was that bad

I wanted to enjoy but too many friends, and dragge

The push and pull was just too much. It dragged out for way too long. I am at chapter 9. And I still don't know why they hate each other. I suspect it is a misunderstanding .

Between a dozen of side characters and friends, I feel they story is dragging of a bunch of side events over and over. Oh are Emily and Jace supposed to start a relationship?

A surprise.

This was worth the read. Romance, a little angst and some drama. Just what I needed.

First I didn't like Jase, then I tolerated him. Emily was alright with me.

Unbelievably bad

I don’t like to leave bad reviews, this is someone’s work and I don’t want to bash it. This book was terrible. The storyline is all over the place and also just boring. The narrators are so slow and boring. This was painful to listen to.

Good but nearly great!

3.25 Stars for me.

This story had the makings of a 4.5 - 5 Star listen for me but...

1. There was so much push/pull that I nearly became seasick. It goes through 90% of the story.

2. The reason for the animosity was not revealed until the 50% mark. You are left scratching your head not knowing why they MCs don't like each other.

3..There is a lot going on in this story. I think that the secondary characters could have had a bit less time and the push/pull cut by 25% and better timing on the reason for the animosity, this would have been 4.5 Stars for me.

With that being said... I liked the way the author wove the story and built the world of family and friends. I will definitely listen to the next book in the series.

Fear is powerful but no match for Love.

Jayce and Emily have a long history of intertwining friends, being paired up at the weddings of those friends and a long standing distrust for each other since high school. Jay starts to take a second look at their history and thinks maybe he can change their direction.
Human nature and perspective can give many facets to happenings past and present.

Just another love story.

The characters were somewhat interesting and believable, but I was expecting more maturity. Maybe it is just me. Seems as if their problems were too common to cause so much drama.

Not bad

lovely story overall. There were spots where it sounded like parts were missing. I still have no idea how they got from friends to date to wedding and straight into more than friends. The transition was missing. still looking forward to which friend will fall next.

easy story, great narration

cute story, but very predictable. it started with a storm of names and it's a but too much at the start, but you then get familiar with all of them and it all makes sense. despite this, i still enjoyed it very much. the narration was out of this world. Tad and Seraphine are absolutely brilliant.

About five hours too long!

The story really is a trivial HEA. It didn't need ten hours of will they, won't they. Ok for doing the ironing or if on a long solitary walk but otherwise I really can't recommend it. Good job it was free

Too long

This story could have been done in half the time. Jace and Emily are frenemies, both the tallest male and female in their seemingly endless group of marriageable aged friends and both equally close enough to those friends to be members of the wedding parties each and every time 🙄 They hook up at each wedding but don't like each other. Then they fall in love. End of story.

sweet and thoughtful

Really enjoyed what I have heard of this series. This one both entertaining and sad - she does create quite painful storylines at the window stage, with the pain the characters experiencing hard to listen to when they are likeable. Seems to be usually because of the stupidity of the male leads, and because of unresolved childhood issues .Not my favourite storyline, but I guess real. they are a sexy read, but finding she does cut short the telling if many love scenes, and feel a little shortchanged by that! Narrators great match for characters. Tad is one of my top, if not the top, male narrators. his delivery is pretty bang on, and works really well for less over top stuff...even love his female voices. Female narrator is great too. so good to have narrators that don't ruin, but even add to the enjoyment of a story.
