Kassandra is a single, independent woman who prides herself on her own success. But when she’s asked by her best friend Laura to be the Maid of Honor in her wedding, Kassandra finds herself questioning her lifestyle. Helping Laura plan the wedding is no problem—she’s done it before for all their other friends. The first time was a blast, the second super fun, but doing it without receiving any help from the rest of the girls gets old really fast.
The whole event kicks off with the worst kind of surprise when Kassandra discovers who her friend's fiancé really is, and she's torn between supporting Laura's future happiness and hiding the deeply buried, intimate past she shares with the groom-to-be. Struggling to be the bigger person and do all the hard work on her own, Kassandra finds surprising comfort in Josh, the best man in the wedding and someone she's been avoiding for years. He's charming, thoughtful, handsome, and the worst kind of womanizer, but she just can't seem to stay away. All the while, Kassandra can't help wondering if the wedding could be any more cliché—until she finds unexpected ways to change things up a bit.
From Chapter 11
“Why are you here, Josh?” I couldn't hold back my curiosity any longer.
“What do you mean?”
He seemed completely caught off guard by my direct question, and I had to remind myself that he couldn’t see inside my head. I really didn’t know what I wanted to hear, but Edward’s words kept coming back to me. Maybe Josh only wanted to sleep with me, nothing else—although it seemed like a lot of trouble for only a night of pleasure.
“Do you really only care about getting into my pants?” I asked, bordering somewhere between a pleading glance and a glare.
Josh seemed to relax a bit before he answered me. “You know I do. But not in the way that moron phrased it. I don’t want you thinking about it like that.”
“You have no idea what I’m thinking,” I quipped.
“I don’t,” Josh said quietly. “I wish I had a clue.” Then he stepped closer to me and tilted his head. “And obviously you don’t know how I feel about you, either.”
“Then explain it to me.” I didn’t try to back away from him this time.
This time he looked at me with different eyes. I didn’t see myself broken in them anymore.

I love the cover!ReplyDelete
I'm proud of the cover. It was difficult for me to choose it and I had a contest on my blog. This, of course, it's the one that won. I had two more options, one in black and white, and another one only showing the wedding dress.
Just a couple days ago some friends were trying to convince me to go with the dress idea, hehe... Maybe when I change all the cover in the future.
Do you prefer paper or digital books?ReplyDelete
That's such a difficult question, Becky.Delete
I used to buy all book in paper, specially hard covers and special editions... until I ran out of space, hehe.
Out of necessity I changed to digital, although I keep buying my favorites in paper (different covers, special editions, different languages,... something to keep as a special memory).
Now I'm also trying audiobooks. It was a completely different experience and it was hard to do at the begining, but I'm getting to love it a little more every day.
What about you?
Enjoyed the excerpt.ReplyDelete
