Publisher's Summary

Divorce attorney Blair Hansen is convinced that marriage should be based on practicality, not passion. But as her own wedding approaches, she finds herself remembering her law school boyfriend, the only man she's ever loved, and regretting what might have been.

Garrett Lowry is a divorce attorney who's ready to settle down. The problem is that he can't find a woman who suits him nearly as well as the one he loved and lost. He broke her heart by playing the field after their breakup - something he's always regretted. But after months of pining for Blair, Garrett stumbles across her in a freak coincidence, and then destiny keeps throwing them together. He's convinced it's a sign that they should give their love a second chance. Can Garrett convince Blair that a player once isn't a player forever and that happy endings aren't just for dreamers?

The Wedding Pact series is rocking!

A beautiful second chance romance! I loved Blair and Garrett's story! You will fall in love with most of the characters in this series! Knickers and Gram are back too and providing laughs along with Grandma Ruby!

Major letdown after The Substitute

Everything about this story aggravated me and had me SMH and rolling my eyes. Especially upsetting was how inept “the player” was and how dumb, cold and without any redeeming qualities the leading lady was. And to top it off, they had very little constructive interactions... Just bad all around.

Hard to like main character

I know you are supposed to feel bad for the main character but about half way through this story I was sick of how mean she was to everyone who cared for her. She was really a bitch! And while I finished it and enjoyed so much if the story, I found myself rolling my eyes every time Blair’s parts were coming up.

Overall Good Experience

This was a good 2nd book in the series. I enjoyed the storyline as well as the narration. I switch to this series if I need a bit of light listening. Will be finishing the series in due course. Really enjoyable.

Dizzy from so many plot twists!

Really liked the characters and the narrators, but felt like I had whiplash by the end from Blair’s endless back and forth decisions about getting married. Yikes!

OMG..The Worst!!!

DO NOT waste your time reading this book! Between the horrible story, terrible narration, and ridiculous characters, clearly it wasn’t for me. After a couple of cringe worthy first few chapters, listening to a narrator who seemed to speak in a grating voice, I skipped to the last chapter and even that was... just bad.

Love conquers all

I enjoyed this continuation of the series.
Parts of it we're a bit unbelievable, and sometimes you feel you just want to kick whichever protagonist is making irrational decisions.

Enjoyed it!

I enjoyed this book. Based on a review I'd read I wasn't certain that'd be the case but it didn't disappont at all. I'm excited to be moving on to Book #3 in this series.

Wouldn’t recommend

I did not enjoy this story at all the main character was very annoying and the whole story was unrealistic af even for a fictional story. I fast forwarded half way till the last four chapters. And still wasn’t satisfied.
This was my first and last story by this author.

2ND CHANCES

I thoroughly enjoyed this story by Denise Grover Swank. It's just a lovely sweet love story between lawyers & ex boyfriend/girlfriend Garrett & Blair, who haven't seen each other in 5 yrs even Garrett walked out on her, but then when he tries & talk to her, she ignores him.
so jump 5 yrs on where Blair can't really trust anyone or especially fall in love but she's going to marry a doctor & that doctor (whose a bit of a Pillock well a big one) is Garrett's cousin & he's going to the wedding as a groomsman, not knowing who he's going to marry as he didn't open his invite. But he got told by his boss that whilst he's up that way for the wedding he can do & cover as someone's divorce brief & guess who's going to be the brief for the wife.
But what a beautiful love story and they have a lot of those heated anguish that you might have Eden you feel like things haven't been resolved.
I do recommend Denise's WEDDING PACK #2
