Blog Tour & Giveaway: Falling For the Groomsman by Jen McLaughlin

I received a copy of Falling for the Groomsman, part of the Wedding Dare series, in exchange for my review.

8 years ago Tyler made a mistake, after taking Christine's virginity he abandoned her, too scared to pursue the feelings he had. Now he's at his sister, Kady's wedding, and he can't take his eyes off of Christine. Christine wants payback for Tyler leaving her and adds it to her sex list,  a list that she created because she wanted to become more adventurous to break free of the rut that she has got herself into. But playing with Tyler ends up playing with her feelings, and the two of them just can't seem to get enough of each other...

I really enjoyed reading about Christine and Tyler, Christine seemed to be a real person, with real hang ups and real desires. Not just in her 'relationship' with Tyler but with her views on the rest of the world and herself. Christine being far from perfect was what made her a believable and relateable character and I liked that.

I could also see the realism of her list, especially considering she was stuck in a sexual rut. Something had to break her out of it and it made sense that she was doing it like she did because of her personality. It was a tiny bit frustrating for the characters not seeing just how much they liked each other, and I wanted to yell at the book, though it did add to the story, and to the explosive chemistry that was between them.

I also really liked the fact that there was an emphasis on the friendships between the girls in Falling for the Groomsman. It was something that a lot of authors miss, and it also makes me think of real life (and worryingly I can see me and my friends acting similarly). It definitely added a realistic vibe to the book and made it particularly enjoyable, and I very much want to know more about the characters.

I'm loving this series so far! Keep it coming!

But as her proximity and the memory of their steamy near-miss three years ago slowly destroys his resolve, Colton’s not sure how much longer he can keep his hands off…or his heart closed.
