Wedding fever has hit the little town of Marietta…
And Kaitlin Shuller’s groom of her dreams is marrying someone else… her sister.
Worst day ever. Her heart is broken, and all her carefully laid plans destroyed. Enter Beckett Larson, her older brother’s best friend and a very good bad decision.
Beckett has spent his life trying to outrun his bad reputation, but everyone already thinks the worst of him, so when Kaitlin offers herself to him — virginity and all— he just can’t say no.
But one night together has permanent consequences, and this time Beckett knows he can’t outrun his bad boy reputation. He’s determined to make Kaitlin his bride…even if he has to seduce her down the aisle.
The story takes off with the Kaitlin's obsession towards her sister's fiance. She has planned her whole life just to accommodate him, even though he has never done anything to encourage it. Sounded like.. A rather desperate situation.
Beckett has admired Kaitlin from afar for a long time, but never believed she could be his in any form. When Kaitlin decides to try to seduce him after the wedding, he accepts the chance, and the possibility to build something with her.
All Beckett ever wanted, was to be accepted and loved. With no doubt, questions, or mistrust. He is easy to like, even with the bad boy reputation, his kindness, caring, and values are in the right place.
Kaitlin is not so easy to like at all. She acts childishly, is a complete control freak, plans everything, and if not part of the plan, it is a mistake. She is afraid of life, living, and not pleasing everyone around her. She does come around a bit at the end, but it wasn't really enough for me. I think an epilogue would have been a great addition to this story.
Luke, the brother, was just a jerk. There's no way around it. And there wasn't really any redemption for him.
Life is not always what we expect it to be, the happiness is not necessarily found where we want it to be found. But that doesn't mean we should be afraid to embrace life with an open heart. Something Kaitlin had to learn, I'm just not 100% convinced, she learned her lesson
