A girl. A guy. And a wedding.
Matthew Daniels and Holly Martin had a one-night stand, twice, and love prevailed. Once Matthew proposes, the hard part is over. The rest is a piece of wedding cake. There’s nothing to stress over now.
However, budgets, a bitter best friend, enormous amounts of family time, and an unexpected change of address may say otherwise.
Thank God for Fireball.
Matthew is super weird and accident prone; add extreme to that mix and you’ve got Holly. These two over the top, adorkable weirdos are destined for each other, a perfect match.
But does everyone see it that way?
The true test to knowing whether you’re ready to take the plunge is surviving the engagement.
Will Holly and Matthew survive? Or will awkward cold feet have them running in opposite directions?
A few months ago I read The Two-Night One-Night Stand, and I really enjoyed it, so I was excited to read this one. Unfortunately, a lot of things that worked for me on the first book, didn’t quite steal my heart on this one. The reason I ended up rating this book so low, was because my main issue with it was the plot.
I also found the writing slightly inferior to the first book, it was still funny and the author managed to write some funny situations, but some of them were just way too cliché, or run down jokes, and it just felt a little flat for me.
Matthew and Holly were still super funny, but I was disheartened to see such a huge lack of communication between them, and I honestly didn’t quite feel that much chemistry between them. And I wanted to kill all secondary characters at some point or another in the book, because they were all meddling way too much. But what really annoyed me, was how Holly and Matthew just let them o ahead and meddle in their lives…
Now, about the plot… and the wedding… and the characters… first of all, I hated the lack of consistency surrounding Holly and the wedding. A girl that is willing to pump up her guest list just so she can book a venue she really can’t afford, annoys me to no end. I’m glad that didn’t happen, but still, it crossed her mind. I was a bit annoyed by the 8 or 80 thing going on surrounding the wedding, and the doubt on everyone’s minds about the wedding plans.
Overall, the book just didn’t do it for me. I didn’t hate it, but I felt it was a bit unnecessary. Some things could have been cut from this novel, and it would have been more enjoyable for me.
