The first rule of wedding planning…

Be prepared for anything!

Wedding planner Adele Hawthorne is prepared for wedding hitches…but not for the best man to be Dan — her ex! Thrown together at every turn, Adele can’t escape their chemistry or the fact that her heart-breaking reason for leaving him all those years ago hasn’t changed. With just days before Dan leaves their winter wonderland, can he convince Adele they still have something worth fighting for?

With how many authors there are out there it's always wonderful when you find those authors that no matter what they are writing you just love their stories. 

That's how I feel about Donna Alward. I remember before I started reading her seeing the covers of her books and thinking...someday. Then she started a new series (we all know how I hate reading out of order) and I jumped on reviewing it. Since then I've been enjoying her books. 

I will admit that I didn't know anything about this book before I agreed to review it. See, I told you I liked her books. Going in blind it's always easy. When I started reading it and realized it was more of less a second chance romance I thought...oh no! 

I'm being honest they aren't my favorite but since it happens a lot in romance I do read them. 

Right from the start I fell into the story. For me it was classic Alward. Of course you need to read her more to truly understand what I mean. She writes these wonderful stories that are both complex and light-hearted at the same time.    

Right off the bat I loved both Dan and Adele. Yes, they both had their issues but who doesn't. The past might not have worked for them but I liked how much they still had that attraction. Sometimes timing isn't always right. 

For them in the past it wasn't. Now they are older and hopefully wiser. Things change. Adele is able to be honest with him and tell him her most hurtful secret. I want to share this with you but I hate to ruin anything. The author did a good job of not making the us and the hero wait till the end of the book. If you would have the ending would have been way to rushed. The way she did it opened up their relationship to another level. 

I really enjoyed their story and was happy to be on the ride to true love with them. Bumpy as this may have been it was well worth reading it. 

If you've read Best Man for the Wedding Planner or any other book by Donna Alward I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡
