In New York Times bestselling author Rachel Gibson's newest novella, Vince Haven and Sadie Hollowell are headed to the altar, and all their friends are headed to Lovett, Texas, to join them for the party of the year.

But Becca Ramsey doesn't have time for all that. Fresh out of beauty school, Becca's all business … and the last thing she needs is bad boy Nate Parrish anywhere in her life.

In the past, Nate was trouble. He's been trying to repair his reputation—heck, he's even got just one girlfriend. The problem is, she isn't Becca. Now Nate's in a whole lot of hot water. He needs to get Becca from "I won't" to "I do" … but how can he do that when she won't even say "I might"?

My Review:

Intro: I think this review is going to be a bit shorter than my normal. The novella is pretty short and full of updates about past couples in a series so I don’t think I can go really in-depth until I’ve read the series which I definitely plan to. Once I finish reading through Mary Balogh’s books. So I will update this review then.


Heroine: Becca-I liked Becca. She seemed like a nice girl with a good head on her shoulders. She also had plenty of moxie which I really loved. I’ve been reading so many of Balogh’s early regencies so it’s nice to find a heroine with some zest.

Hero: Nate-I had trouble with him. For a good portion of the book, he has a girlfriend that he has not yet broken up with. I don’t quite know how I feel about that. On one hand, I am a fan of books with infidelity as a theme but on the other, I find that I have trouble with the theme when it is in a contemporary romance. I did like him otherwise. I have a weakness for mechanics.

Chemistry: One thing I definitely can say about Nate and Becca was they had amazing chemistry. I did not like that Nate had a girlfriend but the chemistry he had with Becca was intense. I almost wish they had gotten a full-length book because they were awesome.

Chemistry Rating:
Conclusion: I need to go back a read this series because I was kind of lost with all of the updates of previous couples from the other books in the series. I loved Nate and Becca’s story though but I am curious to see if my opinion changes if I read the previous books.
