It’s the wedding that Mason has always dreamed of…for someone else. Mason is wedding planner and he’s been hired to coordinate the one that can make all his dreams come true, as well.
Brother of the bride, Noah Wright, just wants to make it through all the weekend in one piece. His mom and sister aren’t making it easy but it’s the wedding planner that he can’t stop thinking about.
He loves me, he loves me not. This one has that back and forth feel and I had to laugh out loud more than once because I was pretty sure it wasn’t flower petals that Mason wanted to throw at Noah a few times.
Ms. Tortuga has a wonderful way of drawing this reader into her western settings and making me feel a part of the story. Her dialogue is witty and the sex is hot. She also has a fantastic way of surprising the reader. The story trope is one that I’ve read but she made it fresh.
I liked both Mason and Noah and was a little frustrated that they took as long as they did to get their acts together. Stubborn is a good word to describe them both. Having said that, Mason is a sweetheart. He’s a fixer and very clever. Noah was a harder nut to crack but he felt real. He behaved like a man in his position might act even when it was uncomfortable for this reader. I’m glad that I didn’t give up on him.
A short story with plenty to celebrate. This is one that readers need to experience and embrace the journey to their HEA.
