The Wedding Party is the most middling of all of Jasmine Guillory’s books. This is the third book of hers that I’ve read – I came into it expecting to enjoy it as much as I enjoyed her first two novels, however I found it to be a very average love story. Was it a bad book? No. However, it was pretty forgettable and doesn’t stand out in a very crowded genre.
Maddie and Theo have two things in common:
1. Alexa is their best friend
2. They hate each other
After an “Oops, we made a mistake” kiss, neither one can stop thinking about the other. With Alexa’s wedding rapidly approaching, Maddie and Theo both share bridal party responsibilities that require more interaction with each other than they’re comfortable with. Underneath the sharp barbs they toss at each other is a simmering attraction that won’t fade. It builds until they find themselves sneaking off together to release some tension when Alexa isn’t looking.
But as with any engagement with a nemesis, there are unspoken rules that must be abided by. First and foremost, don’t fall in love.
