April is willing to do anything for her sister’s wedding—until she comes face to face with a guy from her past.
April Quinn is thrilled to be her sister’s maid of honor, until the wedding coordinator quits and the responsibilities get dumped on her. It’s April’s worst nightmare—especially since her sister has more objections and opinions than a lawyer presenting a high-profile court case. When the wedding singer walks out at the last-minute, her sister hires a replacement. When April finds out who the replacement is, she’s ready to call it quits as well. Because there’s only one person in April’s past that she never wanted to see again, and her sister just handed him a front row seat to the wedding.
Jack Vaughn finally has the career he’s always wanted. After playing in bars and singing in weddings as a struggling musician for half a decade, he’s just released his second album and sales are skyrocketing. But while visiting his parent’s Nashville home the weekend before his first headline tour, he runs into an old friend. When she asks him for a last-minute favor, he can’t bring himself to say no. Even though saying yes means he has to come face to face with April Quinn—the girl who hasn’t spoken to him in years.
And rightly so, since he stole something from her that he’ll never be able to repay.
I love Ms. Matayo's books, they never disappoint. When I saw this one available on Netgalley I couldn't wait to download it and I devoured it in one sitting. She has a way of sucking you in right from the start, introduces fun characters that you want to spend some time with and get to know better.
This was a fun story. April and Jack used to work together, but have a falling out and are reunited three years later when the now famous Jack agrees to sing at the wedding for April's sister. April is obviously less than pleased with this arrangement and Jack is desperate to do anything to right the wrong he has been living with for all these years. Jack and April have great chemistry, I love the "ferenemy" vibe and how they go head-to-head. A fun story with a sweet romance. I think this would be a great full-length novel, I'd love to see what happens next! Everything wraps up well, but I loved Jack and April so I wouldn't have minded spending more time with them. Which is a good quality to have in a book.
Mark your calendars for March 31, you'll want to grab this gem right when it comes out!
