Summary

Allison Hale had always played second fiddle. She didn’t win the science fair, have a million friends, or become the world’s best mom. That was her sister, Betsy. However, Ally’s managed to do something her sister couldn’t - connect her family’s failing business to the wealthy Carmichaels through her engagement to their son, Brent. All she has to do is plan the wedding of the century with the hottest wedding planner in town, Megan Kinkaid. How could she have ever guessed that Megan and her zest for life would threaten everything she’d carefully planned?

Megan Kinkaid knows how to produce a wedding for the history books, and she’s not about to miss out on the chance to tackle high-profile Brent Carmichael’s. His fiancée, however, is not who Megan imagined for shiny Brent. Ally Hale is beautiful, earnest, selfless, and fun. She’s also everything Megan ever wanted for herself, and their chemistry hovers in the stratosphere. But can she make Ally see that there’s more to life than making others happy before it’s too late?

The last 2 hours of this book ENRAGED me

Usually a big fan of author but it took me over a week to listen to the last 2 hours of this book because every time I tried I'd have to turn it off and go do something to keep myself from cussing.

BIG TIME SPOILERS to follow...
***SPOILERS***
***SPOILERS***
***SPOILERS***

***SPOILERS***


Allison's behavior in this whole book is so immature, thoughtless and hurtful to both her fiance and Meghan. She is not in love with her fiance but she agreed to marry him anyway...2x. She has feelings for someone else but instead of ending things with her fiance she agrees to a break and gets into a whole a$$ relationship with another person without breaking up with him. Her reason? Because Meghan won't declare her full feelings to her. Meanwhile she's still meeting up with her fiance for walks and talks. When her fiance gets into an accident she basically ditches Meghan and runs back to him. She leaves the 1 date she and Meghan have since her fiance's accident to run to his side, then is surprised when Meghan breaks up with her. She then gets back with her fiance and agrees to a quickee wedding. WTF?!?!?!?!
Even though I disagree with Meghan's actions when she goes to confess her feelings for Allison ON HER WEDDING DAY (because for 1 why would any sane lesbian try to get back with a woman who runs back to their fiance right after y'all break up is beyond me) but how did all this become all Meghan's fault?
Allison accuses Meghan of ruining her life 2x. WTF? The onus of getting their relationship back on track (why???) is placed on Meghan. The full blame of why things went wrong is placed on Meghan. While it's true that Meghan has trust issues, this in no way makes her the one at fault. Was she supposed to say "why sure Allison go be at your ex-fiance's beck and call--that's fine. I'm a doormat and I'll just stick around letting my heart hang out in the wind while you figure things out"? Why was it Meghan's job to put her feelings for Allison out there before Allison put her feelings out there for Meghan? Why doesn't Allison have to answer for the fact that she NEVER actually broke up with her ex? Allison acts like she's the only person who lost something in their break up and Meghan is the only 1 to blame. What about the fact that Meghan's business and reputation took a big hit? Why doesn't Allison have to apologize for her wishy-washy behavior to both Allison and her ex?
This book was definitely not for me. Not at all!
Frankly I wanted Meghan to break up with Allison and fall in love her her best friend instead.

Great until…

First off I have to say Melissa Sternenberg is fantastic!! I love her as a narrator and she was extra perfect here.
I was really loving this book until there was about 2 hours left. I hated the direction the story went. It was unoriginal and easy and I really wanted Melissa Brayden to NOT go there. But she did. Disappointing and a little irksome for me.
The story wraps up nicely and if not for that hour or so close to the end, I would have given it 5 stars. Overall I enjoyed the characters and the story. The writing is good, too. No regrets on the purchase and would still recommend the book.

Definitely worth a credit!

This book has it all! I loved the MC's, especially Ally. They both grew throughout the book. Has a good story line. The chemistry and love between MC's can be felt deep. The sex scenes are perfect, none of that fade to black crap. I did get frustrated with the lack of communication between MC's at times and wanted to smack them upside the head. The book made me happy, sad, laugh, cry, made me angry and also turned me on. Definitely recommend this book. Also the narrator did a great job too!

Name mixup

The amount of times the narrator said the wrong name was pretty distracting but the rest was good

Thought it would be great

It was a little less than OK. It was longer that it should have been, that made it a little boring. I like Melissa Brayden’s books, but not this one.
Sorry.

Wonderful

A little diff theme with a Event Coordinator falling for a straight bride. I was totally invested within the first few chapters. Of course an adult suddenly realizing maybe she isn’t straight Throws in all kinds of monkey wrenches for everyone..
I couldn’t stop listening and went thru the whole story in one sitting. Just a feel good romance and coming out with very hot but respectful sex episodes.

Worth a credit / great narration,

Yummy

I loved it. I will listen again and again. Aurora always makes the characters jump out and drag you along with their emotional adventures.

Taking Foreverrrrrrr

This audiobook is taking forever to finish. I've really enjoyed other books from this author, but this one is just dragging on. I keep starting and stopping and not being motivated to pick it back up to finish. It just isn't interesting. It started off good, but then fizzled out. I want to root for the main characters and there are a number of ways this story could go/could have gone, but it seems like the author keeps making the most uninspired choice. It is just disappointing. I'm invested at this point... I mean hey I paid for the thing, so I'm going to finish it but it is taking forevvveeerrrrrrrrrrr. This could have been so much better. Or interesting! At all interesting would be good.

A Wonderful Read, as Always

As with all the other Melissa Brayden books in my Audible library (namely, every one available on the platform), I really loved this story. That said, it's taken me longer to finish her new releases lately, between work, family. friends, and numerous personal interests and shiny red play buttons online. Picking it up after a few months away, I kinda came to a realization of sorts, something I enjoy about these books more than all the romance and relatable characters and real scenarios. What I really love are the times when the soul, or heart, puts its foot down for a character. When despite all denial and justification and excuses, the characters finally break down and give in to their truth. So, here's the same can happen for every one of us at some point, as grand and optimistic an idea as that may be.
