Two Wedding Crashers (Dating by Numbers #2) by Meghan Quinn
I don’t know what love is anymore.
Well, that’s not entirely true, but I’m going to tell you a little secret: I’ve lost the spark.
You know the kind of spark I’m talking about?
Where butterflies take flight in your stomach from two hands innocently colliding. Or catching your breath when you first meet someone attractive. Yeah, that spark.
Except I haven’t felt that feeling in forever; there is nothing left inside of me.
Normally, this wouldn’t be a problem–but I’m a writer on a serious deadline, and my editor is breathing down my neck for a romantic, Nicholas Sparks type love story. No pressure, right?
That’s how I find myself flying across the country to crash a wedding in the name of research, dress and heels stuffed into my small suitcase.
It should be the easiest book research ever. Drinking some free champagne, basking in the love of two strangers, and tapping into my romantic side. That will be a breeze. I’m a pro. I can handle this.
Until I mistakenly end up in the wrong hotel room, naked as the day I was born, with the sexiest human I have ever met staring me down, wondering what I’m doing taking a shower in his bathroom. I don’t think calling it research will get me out of this pickle.
But it will make for one hell of a story….
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is the first book that I’ve read by this author, and I just have to say, this book is hilarious! For the vast majority of the time I was reading, I was practically rolling around, in tears, laughing so hard! The interactions between Beck and Riley, right from the beginning, had me laughing out loud!
Beck is an artist, who is convinced by a couple of friends to go with them to a wedding that he isn’t invited to. He seems to be a little down, maybe a little depressed by life, and they are looking to cheer him up. Likewise, Riley is also convinced by a friend to accompany her to a wedding that she isn’t invited to. It becomes a running joke, that has hysterical results!
Beck has a past. One that he isn’t really proud of, and doesn’t want to share. Riley also has secrets that she doesn’t want to share. Their vacation fling produces some pretty intense feelings, but doesn’t look like it can lead to anything more.
This book was an emotional roller coaster! Parts were hysterically funny, but there were also some tears. Hope, friendship, family, and the close relationships of a small town lend a feeling of nostalgia and warmth to the story. An interesting story line and fascinating characters guarantee that I will be going back to read the first story of the series! This was definitely a fun read that I’d recommend to a friend!
