Going to an eight-day tropical wedding sounds great, right?
Elle Sahlstrom hates weddings, but she promised her best friend Tory she’d attend her destination ceremony. That is, despite having to endure obnoxious cousins, bad wine, and a phallus-laden bachelorette party. But that’s not the worst part.
The worst part just happened to be sitting next to her on the plane, on his way to the same wedding, guaranteed to be the same insufferable jerk he was years ago.
Jackson Proveaux knows Elle hates him with a passion, but it’s that same passion that has him convinced she’s perfect for him. Unfortunately, he made mistakes in the past, mistakes that involved cocktails, out of control minivans, and a giant misunderstanding that cost him his one and only shot with Elle.
The French expat sees the wedding as a chance to atone for his sins. He offers to spend a week at Elle’s mercy, and if she still hates him at the end, he’ll leave her alone forever.
Unable to resist a win-win deal, or Jackson, Elle agrees. Their arrangement quickly becomes more complicated than either of them could have anticipated. The grumpy environmentalist never thought Jackson would be able to make her laugh, and he didn’t count on the hot-headed beauty dominating him in the bedroom… or the fact that he’d like it.
A fiery temper, two sets of handcuffs and copious amounts of tequila are guaranteed to make this situation complicated. As the lovers become more entwined in each other’s lives and hearts, one question remains — will their truce survive the wedding, or are they living on borrowed time?

If you haven’t read anything of Dangerfield, yet, you’re sorely missing out. Not only is her writing funny, it’s also hot of mind and ridiculous enough at times to make you laugh at the embarrassment the poor people have to go through. Like Elle, for example. She’s a stubborn, angry induced young woman who gets shit done and doesn’t like anyone stepping on her.
Unless she’s asking for it, which is just one of the reasons why her BFF decides to use every blackmail/puppy dog eye trick in the book to get her to come to her wedding… with the douche canoe himself, Jackson French-Fucking Proveaux.
Only we don’t get the VIP view of the ass of asses that Elle remembers all too well. No. What we get is a tea-drinking, suave, well-dressed gentlemen with the feel-good vibes. So just what went wrong all those years ago, right?
Reading this was great. The writing style flowed and kept me interested, the wedding week shenanigans kept it going, and if Elle or Jackson weren’t having their moment, they were growing before my eyes, and that was what won me over.
There’s a bit of a secret in here that makes it all the better, and it certainly gives Elle and Jackson flavor, so I’ll let you enjoy that when you check this book out. It’s funny, sexy, sad, adorable, hot and full of feels. This book- and this author -is a definite recommend.
