At the beginning of their friend Kady's wedding the girls all make a dare to get with one of the super attractive groomsman. Regan has her eyes set on best man, Logan, not only is he attractive but he's CEO of his own company. But Regan feels the chemistry with someone else, Southern rich guy Brock. He is everything that she doesn't want in her life, spontaneous, undriven and entitled...or is he? The more time that Regan spends with Brock the harder it is to want to pick the good choice, whereas Brock knows from the start that he had no chance of leaving the confident headhunter behind.
At first I was a little concerned about reading a series that was written by different authors. Now I'm not concerned at all. Both the books that I've read so far were well written and engaging, and the places that the stories do meet work well.
Regan was a very confident woman that knows what she wants and goes to get it, though she has a certain amount of obsession with control, meaning that when her plans get changed she really doesn't react well. Which is basically for the entirety of Seducing the Bridesmaid. In fact that translated to the bedroom as well, where Regan took control (though no ropes or anything it was just words) which added a whole new dimension. Plus it was a good thing and a change to read a confident heroine that doesn't just roll over in bed.
What I liked even more than the verbal sparring between Regan and Brock, there were times in this book that I laughed aloud at the banter between them, and it didn't just add to the sexual chemistry between the two of them but the burgeoning relationship that both of them seem to be leaning towards.
There was a lot of back story for the two leads, but there was also back story for several of the other characters, including the groom Colt and his younger sister Sophie. This definitely added to the depth of the story, and I'm particularly looking forward to seeing how this fits in with the other books. In this case I am particularly interested in Logan and Sophie's relationship after the hints that were dropped in this book.
Also the epilogue was really sweet! I'm looking forward to reading more!
