    Where's the Heat?!

    Dr. An(Drew) Nichols and Alexa Monroe, meet in a malfunctioning elevator that is stuck with just the two of them. Resolved to their fate, they strike up a conversation. Eventually, Drew shares his tale of woe of being harangued into being a part of the wedding party of his ex-girlfriend and his ex-best friend. Cue the violins for the last minute drop-out of his wedding date and you can see why he'd ask a perfect attractive stranger to be his date. Alexa says yes, and it goes as well as can be expected and the wedding party and guests are intrigued with her. Afterwards, realizing they like one another, they embark on a long distance relationship, traveling back and forth between their respective cities. They both have high-powered careers, she's an attorney and works for the Mayor and eventually, misunderstanding(s) and the distance causes a wedge between the two of them and they take a break from one another. Alexa (unfairly IMO) gets angry at Drew when clear communication would have resolved the issues. To his credit, Drew doesn't kowtow to her by calling and pleading his case. I wish heroines would STOP getting angry and start being more honest about what "they" want in any type of relationship. Overall, I liked the story, but not the fade to black sex scenes. The story lacked heat. I don't need explicit details, but I definitely needed something more. I voluntarily received, read and reviewed the paperback version of this book courtesy of Penguin and BookishFirst.

    Worth a read

    This book was mentioned on Book Riot recently in the same sentence as another book I loved this year. KOBO had also been promoting it as a book I might enjoy. I decided to finally give it a try. It's an enjoyable book. The author is very tallented at certain aspects of romance writing though other aspects (like writing sex scenes) she needs some practice at. Regarding the sex scenes, there is nothing wrong with being minimal ... lots of amazing chick lit does that ... but there is a certain knack to it so that it isn't so jarring. Overall, though, this is an enjoyable story with believable emotional depth. Sorry for any typos in this. My ereader doesn't check spelling. :)

    The wedding date

    26263627 Lisa Bateman's review Nov 19, 2017 · edit really liked it This was such a fun quirky read. There were some parts that had me laughing, and parts that warmed my heart. Alexa and Drew both work all the time. Neither has time nor wants to have a girlfriend or boyfriend. Little do they know that fate is going to knock them over the head. Alexa is meeting her sister who just got a partnership at a law firm. Drew is in town attending his best friend’s wedding as a groomsman. What makes it even more awkward is the friend is marrying Drew’s exgirlfriend. So Drew needs a date so he doesn’t look bad. Him and Alexa are on the same elevator when they get stuck. Luckily, she has cheese and cracker in her purse that she was planning on celebrating with her sister, along with a bottle of champagne. Drew thinks to ask her to attend the wedding with him. She will have to fake being his girlfriend. It was so much fun to read about Alexa and Drew faking their romance. But from the beginning, it wasn’t very hard. They both found themselves constantly holding hands or touching each other in some way. Too bad they live a long way from each other. They stay in touch and start a long distance relationship. There are a lot of bumps in the road and a lot Alexa doesn’t know about Drew. I really enjoyed this book. The characters were so well developed. I feel like I know all of them. I would like to see the author write a book with Carlos finding his better half. I really liked his character. The reason I gave 4 stars and not 5 is because of the reference about the trouble Olivia got in as a kid and how if it had been Drew, the cops would have done anything because he is white. That’s racist. And it offends me because my hubby was a cop for years and he was never that way. Yes, I know there are some that are but not all of the.

    This was so cute!

    This was such a cute book! I loved it! Alexa and Drew meet in a hotel elevator when it breaks down and they're stuck in there together. It's quickly obvious that they have good chemistry and seem to get along. Drew is in town for the wedding of an ex and a good friend. He is dreading going to this wedding alone after his date backed out on him. Drew asks Alexa to be his date to the wedding and pretend to be his girlfriend. After spending the weekend together for wedding actives it becomes clear that the two of them have a spark, but with Drew refusing to do long-term, serious relationships do the two of them even stand a chance? Drew and Alexa were so cute together. Even though the booked addressed some more serious issues at times, it still felt like a light, fun read! I received a free electronic copy to read and review through Penguin's First to Read Program.

    Lots of Chemistry!

    THE WEDDING DATE checks off all the boxes in what I want from a charming and warm romance book: A strong female lead who is comfortable in her natural curves A charming and sexy male lead who appreciates natural beauty A multiracial couple that discusses their differences Chemistry - lots of it Alexa and Drew meet in a stalled elevator at the Fairmount Hotel in San Francisco. They are immediately attracted to each other - the sparks don’t fly just yet... After some flirty banter he divulges he’s in town from Santa Monica for his ex’s wedding. Did I mention his ex is marrying his former best friend and he’s been asked to be a groomsman? So awkward... Drew needs a plus one to get him thru the weekend festivities and Alexa agrees to be his fake girlfriend. By the end of the weekend Alexa and Drew have had some very hot encounters and can’t keep their hands off each other. They spend the next two months jetting back and forth for weekend visits and the chemistry between the two of them is palpable. The plot is predictable but carried out so well and the ending comes full circle back to the Fairmount elevator all wrapped up in a delightfully sweet package. Guillory hits all the high notes with this one - it’s modern, fresh and sexy! The writing is fast paced and all consuming - I was utterly entertained and didn’t want it to end.
