What's a bridesmaid to do? Head bridesmaid Emily Applegate is furious when Lord Berkeley cancels her best friend's wedding venue. But gorgeous Theo is adamant that the wedding won't happen at his estate... unless Emily makes a trade. But is Emily willing to play the Earl's fake fiancee? Especially when there's absolutely nothing fake about the sizzle between them...!

Books by Christy McKellen are always fun to read. I always enjoy every minute from her books. They are easy to read out in one sitting and perfect for spending a Sunday afternoon reading.

We first met the main character of this book Emily in Fired by her Fling, which follows the life of her best friend Lula. I liked Emily from the beginning, she’s a very bubbly person and she’s always upbeat. But like Lula she has had a difficult past. A past that keeps haunting her. All the secrets that she has to keep to hide her past are finally catching up to her.
Theo, Lord Berkeley, is a guarded man. He has a difficult time opening up to people and trusting them. I can’t say that I blame him for it after I got to know his history. But he’s a really great guy, he’s loving and caring, he isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty (not what you would expect from an earl) and he’s smart and funny. What do you want more in a man?

I really loved the background story of these two characters. They have both been through so much, but they are both really strong. They find a way to cope with what had happened to them, it might not have been the best way of coping but they managed to carry on with their life. What they both have in common is that they don’t want anyone get too close. Afraid to get hurt again. But from the moment they meet each other it is clear that there is something between them. There is no denying it. That’s one of the things that I loved the most about this book, you really could feel the attraction and tension sizzling between them. So the book more than succeeded on the romance part.

There is one thing that I missed in this book. There were almost no side characters. The whole book centered only on Theo and Emily. I missed that there were no friends of them in the book. It would have been nice if there were some to make the story a little more complex.

Overall I really enjoyed this book. It’s ideal for anyone who is looking for a sexy romance story, which will take you to contemporary London. I’m looking forward to read other books by this author.
