Renee can plan the perfect wedding,
but does love always go to plan?
Wedding coordinator Renee Grothen isn’t meant for marriage. Those who can, do. Those who can’t, plan. But she never could have planned on gorgeous, talented thriller writer Jasper Dembenski proposing—a fling, that is. Fun without a future. And the attraction between them is too strong for Renee to resist. Now she can have her no-wedding cake…and eat it, too.
After years in the military, Jasper is convinced he’s too damaged for relationships. So a flirtation—and more—with fiery, determined Renee is way too good to pass up…until his flame becomes his muse.
Renee is an expert at averting every crisis. But is she finally ready to leap into the one thing that can never be controlled: love?
I received a copy of this book from Mills and Boon via NetGalley in return for an honest review
The start of this book is so poignant and makes you like Jasper from the start. Koda is lovely and gives the story another dimension. Renee is an excellent wedding planner, she likes to be in control and is a true professional. Book five in the Happily Inc series reads well as a standalone. The cast of characters whose romances have featured in earlier books, enrich this story.
The attraction is instant, but the emotional connection the couple subconsciously yearn for is riven with conflicts. Some external, but mostly due to the couple’s fear of commitment and trusting another with their heart. The romance is gentle, but the passion is hot and this gives the story a wide appeal.
A lovely heartwarming romance, with some unusual subplots and a cast of characters both animal and human, that add charm and a sense of community to this story.
