She has a plan. He’s about to change it.Regan Wakefield is a headhunter in both name and personality: driven, motivated, and unafraid to pursue what—and who—she wants. Naturally, she’s thrilled when her friend's wedding offers her an opportunity to score Logan McCade, the practically perfect best man. Unfortunately, groomsman Brock McNeil keeps getting in her way, riling her up in the most delicious of ways. But Brock’s smooth southern charm isn't part of the plan...so how exactly did they end up having searing-hot sex?Regan may pretend the erotic electricity sparking between them is merely a distraction, but Brock knows better. She refuses to see beyond the devil-may-care façade he presents to the world, while he sees straight throughhers. Changing her mind—and getting under her skin—is a challenge he can’t resist. And when he wins, Brock will do whatever it takes to convince Regan that the best man for her is him.
Regan Wakefield is a woman who knows what she wants. She is a professional in both business and in private life. Everything in her life must go according to a plan. She hasn’t had an easy life and has worked hard to get to where she is. She does not have time to play games and has her mind set on what she wants. In this instance, what she wants is Logan McCade. He is the CEO of his own company, driven for results and gorgeous. He fits her plan perfectly. What else could a girl want?
Brock McNeil is a country boy. He has never really put himself forward to reach his full potential. He has been happy to slide along doing what he has to do to keep his father happy. He lives in the shadow of his older brother’s seemingly perfect existence or so he would have everyone believe. But when he spots Regan as the bridesmaid at his best friend’s wedding he decides that some things may be worth working to achieve.
One night together. What could it hurt? Regan figures it won’t hurt anything as long as she can keep it on her own terms. Then she can get back to putting herself in front of Logan to try and catch his eye. He is the type of man for her, after all. But after one night, Brock is left wanting more and trying to figure out a way to convince Regan that she really does want to take a chance with him.
Regan is a hard character to like at first. But once you catch some glimpses at what she has gone through to get to where she is and the insecurities that she faces, she is much more relatable. Brock is lovable from the start but he does have a thick headed. I would have liked to be able to give him some advice part way through the book.
I really enjoyed this book. I did read another of the Wedding Dare series and the characters are all linked together in the books. I loved that I could place what was going on with the other characters that I had already read about while I was reading this book. Knowing the ending of this story before reading it made it a little different. I really like books with multiple points of view and this one did not disappoint. Now I need to get the rest of the series and read them!!
Katee Robert learned to tell stories at her grandpa’s knee. Her favorites then were the rather epic adventures of The Three Bears, but at age twelve she discovered romance novels and never looked back.
Though she dabbled in writing, life got in the way—as it often does—and she spent a few years traveling, living in both Philadelphia and Germany. In between traveling and raising her two wee ones, she had the crazy idea that she’d like to write a book and try to get published.
Her first novel was an epic fantasy that, God willing, will never see the light of day. From there, she dabbled in YA and horror, before finally finding speculative romance. Because, really, who wouldn’t want to write entire books about the smoking-hot relationships between two people?
She now spends her time—when not lost in Far Reach worlds—playing imaginary games with her wee ones, writing, ogling men, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
