Falling for the Groomsman by Jen McLaughlin/Diane Alberts #Review #WeddingDare

Title: Falling for the Groomsman
Author: Jen Mclaughlin writing as Diane Alberts
Series: Wedding Dare #1
Publisher: Entangled Publishing, Brazen imprint
Release Date: June 9, 2014

She’s the one that got away. He’s the one she can’t forget.

Photojournalist Christine Forsythe is ready to tackle her naughty little to-do list, and who better to tap for the job than a hot groomsman? But when she crashes into her best friend’s older brother, Christine realizes her list needs updating. And fast. Tyler Dresco took her virginity during the best night of her life, then bolted. Now that they’re trapped together at a destination wedding, she’s going to get her revenge.

Tyler has never forgiven himself for how completely he lost control all those years ago. Being in Christine’s arms had felt right…until he realized what he’d taken from her in the hallway of a cheap motel. And oh, how she’s making him pay for it now. The insatiable heat between them has only grown stronger, but every time things heat up, Christine walks away. 

With every encounter, things go a little bit further until Christine’s caught in her own trap of seduction. And before their time’s up, Tyler’s not the only one wanting more…

Four Stars

Falling for the Groomsman is such an adorable and sexy story! Something happened between Tyler and Christine way back when, and things didn’t go so well. They haven’t spent any time together in years, but they’re destined to now at Tyler’s sister’s wedding. Oh boy! Christine wants a little revenge, but will she be able to focus on this game of seduction when the heat is reignited with Tyler?

I loved that this was a second-chance story between two people who clearly connected early on, but didn’t do anything with their attraction for one another through the years. Now they get to deal with what had happened between them in the past. I thought Jen McLaughlin put them through situations that had good balance of humor, heart, tension, and steam.

I’m really enjoying the Wedding Dare series a lot. I started with the prequel, Dare to Resist, and then I jumped to Best Man with Benefits. The stories can all be read as standalones. I will definitely keep reading on.
