This book was so fun! I love a good competition and this book was full of them!
Starting with two families with children similar ages. Two of them that they had always talked about getting married, then add a huge misunderstanding caused them to dislike eachother their whole lives. Fast forward to now…
Shaina and Mark are forced to ride together to his sister’s wedding. That’s when she confronts him about some things he seems to not have ever understood after 30 yrs and things change between them. Add in a crazy competition where the prize is the honeymoon to Venice, that another family member couple that’s getting married can’t take due to work, and things really get interesting.
Loved the rep in this book. I love any and all rep and to have the main couple be one that is demisexual and the other have hearing loss was so great!
The steamy scenes were amazing! And totally appreciate the beard references. I think my husband has more products than I do. His beard is the softest.
❓ Do you like games? Board games, competitions, tournaments, etc
I love all games. I’m pretty competitive but I don’t get upset when I lose it’s fun when everyone can win.
Thank you entangled_publishing and netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.
Today was a rough day. I did get my hair done, so that was good, but I had bad neck and head pain, still do. Then we went to my friends former fiancee’s memorial. That’s why I’m so late to post it’s been an off day.
Their mothers are the worst matchmakers…
Mark Goldman has never gotten along with Shaina Fogel. Ever. Even when they were in diapers, their bestie mothers wanted them to grow up and get married. Not happening. Mark prefers his quiet, reserved life. But a family wedding is about to change everything Mark thought he knew about his archnemesis.
A week of wedding events with Mark Goldman? Shaina would rather have a week of root canals. Maybe the guy is hot, but for their entire lives, he’s never once acknowledged the fact that she’s hard of hearing. So it comes as a massive surprise when she discovers that Mr. High-and-Mighty and Annoyingly Sexy simply didn’t know. And now she needs his help.
When it’s revealed that the weeklong wedding events are actually a weeklong competition—for a dream vacation—Mark and Shaina do the unthinkable: work together. And the second the animosity begins to fade, something even more electric takes its place. Only now it’s not just an attraction between enemies. And nothing could be worse than the fact that their mothers might have had it right…
