I enjoyed Vivian and Mel in Donut Fall in Love and was curious how they would turn out. She fan girled over him and he was not what she thought.

They were opposites attract, enemies to lovers and grumpy + sunshine.

There was a lot of comedy work which is hard to tell in writing without the delivery and timing but I thought was funny. We listen to a lot of stand up.

They didn’t have the best start and Mel had to make up for his bad first impression. The wedding planning was fun and it helped them get closer since they were both in the wedding party.

❓ What are you reading this weekend?

Synopsis:
A bridesmaid and groomsman put their differences aside to get their best friends down the aisle in this opposites-attract steamy romantic comedy.

They say to never meet your heroes, but when Vivian Liao’s roommate gets engaged to her favorite actor’s costar, she has no choice but to come face-to-face with Melvin Lee again. He’s just as funny and handsome as he is on-screen…but he thinks she’s an ice queen and a corporate sellout. It’s none of his business how she chooses to live her life, no matter how charismatic he is.

Mel is used to charming audiences as an actor and stand-up comedian, but he can’t seem to thaw Vivian’s defenses. If she can ignore the simmering attraction below the surface, so can he. The only thing uniting them is their goal for their friends’ wedding to go off without a hitch.

As they collaborate on wedding cake and karaoke parties, Mel realizes he might have seriously misjudged this bridesmaid, while Vivian discovers the best man might just be as dazzling off-screen as he is on. With the wedding underway, maybe more than one happily ever after is in the future.

Thank you berkleyromance and netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.
