A sweet telling of the delicate journey from infatuation to love.
If you’ve ever fallen in love, you know that it can be quick and it can be chaotic. The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory captures the uncertainty and doubt that we all feel when love enters the equation. Told from both Alexa’s and Drew’s perspectives, the reader can relate to all of the behind the scenes thoughts from each character.
Alexa and Drew meet by chance in an elevator. It is precisely the kind of cute “how we met” story we would love to tell our friends. She didn’t even realize he was in there with her. I’m sure she turned andsaw this handsome man move out of the shadows towards her.
After sharing a few quick snacks in the elevator Alexa agrees to be his last-minute date to a wedding. The wedding date turns into a cute and flirtatious event that may have you swooning for them.
What is life without sprinkles and coffee?
Drew learns the intricacies of Alexa’s personality very quickly. He’s incredibly attracted to her, and sincerely enjoys bringing her doughnuts and coffee in bed each morning they spend together. Even so, as a man who fears commitment he is constantly reminding himself that this good thing has to end.
Alexa tries her best to remember that Drew is not the type for long commitments. He admits that at their first encounter. That said, of course she finds herself drawn to him regardless. When love starts to bloom, it’s difficult to reason with.
The Wedding Date is a fun, easy-read for anyone who enjoys a little romance.
