A little fake relationship never hurt anyone. . .
Kate Massie has big dreams-they just haven't worked out. Yet. In the meantime, she spends her days clerking for a judge and her nights fantasizing about her tall, dark, and sexy gym crush. So when she runs into him one night, she's shocked to realize he was her shy, nerdy junior-prom date. But that isn't where the surprises end . . .
James Abell needs a date to his sister's wedding. So when Kate agrees, he's relieved . . . until one little lie turns their wedding date into a full-blown fake relationship.
Only it doesn't feel fake-not the toe-curling kisses and definitely not the electricity. Neither of them is looking for something real . . . but they just might fall for their own little white lie.
The Wedding Date is an adult contemporary romance novel by Kelly Eadon. It is marked at adult, but I felt like the characters were right on the border between New adult age and adult age, so I think The Wedding Date would appeal to fans of both age groups. Can I tell you guys a secret? (that is probably not much of a secret…at all) I am sucker for a fake relationship book. I know, that is not surprising at all, but I just can’t get enough of them. They fit perfectly into the fun, light and romantic books I can’t seem to get enough of. And The Wedding Date was all of that and more. It was a really fun read.
The Wedding Date is told in dual narrative between Kate and James. I really liked both of the characters. Neither one of them was dramatic at all, so it was very refreshing to see that there was none of the usual over dramatic “roadblocks” that the couple faced. Sure, there were road blocks but each and every one of them was dealt with in a calm, mature way. (mostly.) Again, that was very refreshing.
Kate and James have great chemistry. I could easily seem them being a fun, and laid back couple in real life. The Wedding Date was a bit predictable, just the way I wanted it to be. This is a great read to bring out to the pool or the beach for the warmer weather we have been having. Bring on the beach reads!
Bottom line: The Wedding Date is a feel good, fake relationship romance that is well written, with very likable characters. Whether the weather is beach weather already, or if you are just looking to get into a summer mindset, The Wedding Date is a great story to transport you to lazy summer days.
P.S. The main character Kate is a lawyer, so you know I liked that about her. :p
