When I see a book is written by Avery Flynn, I know I'm in for lots of laughter, sexy times, usually a few tears, and I love every single moment. When Hadley Donavon needs a pretend date for her sister's wedding, she asks her best friend Web Holt. Everything is perfect until she discovers his "evil" twin Will in his place. Will and Hadley have been at odds pretty much from the moment they met, as Will believes Hadley is only friends with his brother to try and get to the Holt fortune.
I adored both Hadley and Will so much from the very first. They had such amazing chemistry and I loved watching them go from adversaries to lovers before either really saw it coming. I really didn't love Will when we first met him. He was so suspicious of Hadley for no reason other than his ex had only been in a relationship with him to increase her social standing and finances. I really felt sorry for him at first, and hated he seemed to paint all women with that jaded brush. Hadley had her own problems with being home. She had painted her life in Harbor City as perfection, only to be fired right before her sister's wedding with no prospects of a job when she returns.
The humor and the chemistry between Hadley and Will kept me reading late into the night as I couldn't put the book down. I saw so much growth with both characters, especially in how they dealt with one another and especially their families. I loved that Web put the mirror up to Will's face and helped Will to finally realize why he gave Hadley so much crap from day one. I also loved how Hadley finally had to come clean with not only her sister but her entire family about what was really going on in her life in Harbor City. I have to say I adored her family so much and they had me laughing out loud many times as I read this story. This book was so very family-centric and that is something I've come to expect and love from books by Avery Flynn.
The Wedding Date Disaster was such a fun, sweet, and sexy romance. Fans of romantic comedies will find this book to be like catnip and much like me, want more from all the characters. The Wedding Date Disaster was everything I was looking for in a romantic comedy and just what I needed to read at this time.
