Sexy and light, this dirty rom com flies by. I’ve seen Logan Chance’s books on the bestseller lists before, but this is my first time reading one and I’ve got to say, it was a fun read! What starts as a slow burning rom com turns into an, uh, kinda filthy read, honestly. It’s perhaps a little over the top (and a little too like insta-love), but I enjoyed it from start to finish. Chance’s writing is solid, the plot is interesting, and having so much of the story told from the hero’s perspective was a treat.
Essentially, the story follows Kiki, a woman who agreed to marry the wrong guy. Simple as that. They’ve only been dating for a short time and it all came on suddenly, but now she finds herself engaged and isn’t sure how to feel about it. Enter Ellis, a former childhood friend of the groom who sneaks a kiss from Kiki before realizing that she’s engaged. As the two spend time together, it becomes increasingly obvious that Kiki is with the wrong man, and neither one is quite sure what to do about that.
It’s a quick, light, and steamy read that doesn’t delve too deep or linger on angst for long. And though the premise could easily have gone off the rails – Kiki is engaged to another man for a significant portion of the book – Chance navigates the complexities well. Though the steam was a bit much for me and I couldn’t believe how gullible Kiki was at times, I enjoyed the vast majority of the book. I’d definitely check out more of Chance’s work if I was in the right mood, and if you’re looking for a quick and steamy read, then he’s delivering some pretty solid work. I received an ARC via Wildfire Marketing Solutions and am voluntarily leaving a review of this steamy rom com.
Ellis Atwood is the devil. Ok, maybe that’s too harsh. Ellis Atwood is ruining my life.
First, he demolishes a perfectly good wedding trellis.
Second, he destroys a gorgeous doggie wedding that I spent ages planning. (I kid you not.)
Third, he makes me feel all warm and fuzzy, and that is not ok. I prefer the cold and harsh way my fiancé makes me feel so much better. (wait, that didn’t come out right.)
Fourth, and there is a fourth, he gets me all wound up and flustered.
And last, when he unexpectedly kissed me it made me forget my own name, or the fact that I’m getting married…in a month.
Please someone help me out. I’m a mess.
Worst part is, Ellis isn’t the bad guy I first thought he was.
And being forced to spend time with him is making me realize that he needs my help more than anything.
So what’s a girl like me to do?
I’m only in town long enough to figure out a plan with my brother on how to save our brewery from the awfulness that is my father. Oh and be in a wedding.
Where I may or may not be crushing a little too hard on the bride-to-be. (spoiler alert, I’m crushing hard.)
She’s really cute. Like seriously.
And she has the cutest job, she’s a dog wedding planner. (I kid you not.)
I can see why Henry loves her.
I can see why everyone loves her.
I can see why I’m falling for her.
I’m usually not a relationship-type guy. Call it picky or whatnot, but usually I get bored easily. So, my plan is simple. Spend as much time with Kiki (soon to be Faniki, I know) and hopefully get bored with her adorkable smile and sexy legs that go on for miles.
Then, I can save the brewery, be the best man of the wedding, and get my butt back to Chicago and away from the happy couple.
