Review: Kiss Me, Sweetheart (Something Borrowed #2) by Codi Gary

The bridesmaids and groomsmen for hire at Sweetheart, California’s Something Borrowed have the cure for celebrity wedding headaches. But even a job that’s strictly business can lead to the
real thing . . .
Rylie Templeton had big dreams, until she quit culinary school to take care of her father and signed on with Something Borrowed. Suddenly years have gone by and she’s still a bridesmaid-for-hire, with her idea to open a gourmet bakery on the back burner. Scoring a high-profile wedding could help turn her life around, if only she didn’t have to share the spotlight with her coworker, the insufferable—and undeniably gorgeous—Dustin Kent.

Instructed to make it work, Rylie plunges into the wedding festivities with Dustin by her side. If only she could convince him to turn his spectacular charm on someone else! But the enigmatic, reformed playboy has his own ideas about romance, and they all include Rylie. As the nuptials get closer, Rylie realizes that Dustin’s wooing is actually working, and that the two of them might make a good team in more ways than one . .

Kindle Edition, 210 pages

Terri's Thoughts

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you!

This is the second in the Something Borrowed series.  Although I have read the whole series thus far, no need to worry if you did not read the first installment.  This can be read as a stand alone.  That being said, I would recommend starting the series at the beginning as it is a fun series and you do get the introduction to both Rylie and Dustin in the first book.

There really are no surprises with this story, it really is just pure light and fun entertainment.  The chemistry between the characters is evident from the get go and the reader knows that it will not take long for the temperature to rise on said chemistry.  Given the fact that this story is 210 pages, it really does not take long at all.

It also doesn't take the reader very long to see past the playboy persona of Dustin to see who he really is.  I think it is every (single) girls fantasy to be able to win over a player and change his ways.  This is probably why so many woman date frogs in hopes that they meet their prince.  Too bad it works out in fiction way more often than reality!  I digress....however it really is heartwarming to see the transition within Dustin all because of Rylie.

That is all I am going to say about this story.  If you are looking for a romance that is on the shorter side, has some witty banter, and is entertaining, this is a good choice for you.

About the Author

(From her Goodreads profile)

From the time I could put a Disney Book cassette into my little stereo,and read along, books have held a fantastic distraction. When I was eleven, I decided I wanted to be one of those magical people that brought stories to life. Devouring a book a day sometimes, my first romance novel stuck with me. I've always been a sucker for a happy ending (and the great romantic gesture)and that's what I try to put into my stories. I am so honored to be a part of Avon, and am so excited to have my own dreams coming true.
