  • 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.

  • The Wedding Date

    Review written by Marie for Ever After Book Reviews! Okay, that’s it. I’m carrying cheese, crackers and wine with me on every single elevator I’m on! Especially if I can meet a hot doctor named Drew who treats me as well as he does Alexa. Wait. I think I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me back up. So… Alexa is visiting her sister in a hotel in San Francisco. She’s on the elevator with a guy who is… gorgeous… and the elevator stops. They’re stuck. Conversation begins, and it’s discovered that he’s going to his ex’s wedding to his best friend, dateless, and Alexa divulges that she’s got cheese, crackers and wine for a celebration with her sister. (This is where they come in!) They share the libations, and flirt with one another (adorably), and Drew asks her in a rom-com sort of way if she’ll be his fake girlfriend for the wedding. She agrees, and from there, hilarity ensues. After the wedding weekend, Alexa and Drew can’t stop thinking about one another, so they continue to fly back and forth between Los Angeles and Berkley to spend weekends with one another. Their relationship is so cute, I can’t stand it, and Drew is… well… nearly perfect. But when the long distance/commitment thing starts to wear on and intimidate them, they both have to start making some tough decisions that neither one of them is prepared for. OMG. I wasn’t expecting to fall in love with this book as much as I did, but I couldn’t put it down. Literally, couldn’t put it down. It was fabulously written. It’s funny, heart-felt, romantic, sweet… and it touches on so many emotions that every one of us has felt at one time or another. I know that it’s a stand-alone book with only one storyline that wraps up nicely, but I wish there were so much more in store for Drew and Alexa. I truly do! If you’re looking for something fun to read, pick this book up. You will be SO happy that you did! ***I voluntarily read a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and feelings are my own***

  • 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.

    Thanks for your feedback!
