Q: Have you ever caught a bouquet or garter at a wedding?
The Singles Table
Pub Date: 11/16/21 – Happy Pub Day!
Zara Patel is the life of the party at the singles table and its wedding season. She is giving the matchmakers a run for their money, matchmaking herself.
Zara is my kind of person. She is hilarious, exhilarating and a beauty. Though a lot of what she does appears is to keep others at arm’s length.
Jay is the best man at her friend’s wedding and he makes a bad first impression on her. It’s adorable and starts my favorite trope- enemies to lovers. As he has to attend all these events with her and realizes she isn’t what she seems and he isn’t as uptight as he seems.
This book was sensitive to Jay and his business partners’ PTSD and their coping and struggles at the somewhat most innocent things that are now triggers.
There were also family issues which shaped Zara’s reactions to relationships. She was just the most loving and thoughtful person. We all take time to process things, some things take years, others hours. You never know when you will have an epiphany or your life will change course.
I also loved all the Aunties that felt like they popped up and always had a poor man on their arm and the zombie movie names, the acronym slayed me.
And the role playing was 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
I love the covers on these books.
Thank you berkleyromance and netgalley for the E-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.
Opposites attract in this romantic comedy about a free-spirited lawyer who is determined to find the perfect match for the grumpy bachelor at her friend’s wedding
After a devastating break-up, celebrity-obsessed lawyer Zara Patel is determined never to open her heart again. She puts her energy into building her career and helping her friends find romance through the wedding season. She’s never faced a guest at the singles table she couldn’t match, until she crosses paths with the sinfully sexy Jay Donovan.
Former military security specialist Jay has no time for love. His life is about working hard, staying focused, and winning at all costs. When charismatic Zara crashes into his life, he’s thrown into close contact with exactly the kind of chaos he wants to avoid. Worse, they’re stuck together for the entire wedding season.
So they make a deal. She’ll find his special someone if he introduces her to his celebrity clients. But when their arrangement brings them together in ways they never expected, they realize that the perfect match might just be their own.
