I've been reading since I was my oldest daughter's age….thanks to R.L. Stine & Christopher Pike…and later on thanks to Anne Rice.  Those 3 authors changed my life and I have been obsessed with reading ever since.

4 full moons - "Falling for the Groomsman" by Diane Alberts

Falling for the Groomsman (a Wedding Dare Novel) (Entangled Brazen) - Diane Alberts

I am really loving this Wedding Dare series so far, and I love that this series is introducing me to new authors to check out.  First off, if you want to read this series, I would highly recommend reading Laura Kaye’s prequel to the series, Dare to Resist.  You get to read Colton and Kady’s book, and then the rest of the series goes into the maid of honor/bridesmaids/best man/groomsmen getting their stories.  You can read Falling for the Groomsman first, but you will miss an opportunity on learning about the Bride and Groom….and believe me don’t miss out on them.  =)

Diane Alberts, also known as Jen McLaughlin has a very unique writing style, and I loved how she had Christine and Tyler get a chance of actually being together.   Although, these two were hard to love at times, let’s just say…Tyler started off on the wrong foot with me due to him running away after taking Christine’s virginity 8 years ago.  8 YEARS AGO…and Christine had every right to be mad at him.  I was mad at him for her.  (virtual slap to Tyler because he deserved it)  She was young at the time and it broke my heart, how her life story was told in the story.  She was going through a lot when she hooked up with Tyler and well…Tyler just left.  Stupid jerk!  He grew on me though, after he told his side on why he did it.  He’s still stubborn and a jerk, but he definitely won me over after a while….especially at the end of the book.

Christine and Tyler end up meeting up with each other after the 8 years thanks to Kady and Colton’s wedding…but Christine doesn’t want to really hook up with Tyler.  How can she resist him though?  The best parts of the book were the heated moments between the two when they did get together.  Let’s just say Kady got hurt, but in her eyes in a good way.  And how Tyler took care of Kady…what a sweetheart…but he did tend to be overbearing at times.  Geez!  He’s a doctor, so I’ll give him an excuse on that overbearing nature.

I loved the nicknames they gave each other.  Dr. McAss ( and there were several others that Christine gave him ) and Patient McClumsy.  Yup! These two were a riot together.  I think that is why they grew on me because they were definitely immature at times, but they made the story funny and uplifting at times.  Because believe me  the drama between these two was definitely brought up so many times.   I wanted to slap both of them when it was brought up.

The ending was the best part of the story because how Diane got these two finally together.  She didn’t make it easy for the two…but when it ended…let’s just say it was epic.  Tyler did a great job at the ending.  =)

I give this book 4 full moons, and recommend it readers out there that enjoy stories of characters falling away from each other and coming back together later on.

I received a complimentary copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
