“When drama threatens to ruin a romance on a reality show, only a true friend can save a groomzilla’s wedding.
Daniel Green, an event planner with a neat, quiet, orderly life, reluctantly agrees to plan the wedding of his childhood friend Ander, an outrageous fashion designer soon to marry a wealthy entertainment lawyer named Rafe. To complicate matters, the happy couple have agreed to have their wedding made into a reality show – something that practical Daniel isn’t sold on.
Daniel is neither a romantic nor a wedding planner, but he’s the only person in the world who can manage Ander. Distracting him from his mission is Owen Grainger, a too-handsome-to-be-true producer whose quiet charm pulls Daniel into his orbit.
When the stress of the show triggers bad behavior from Ander, co-producer Victor Pierce decides it’s the key to a ratings bonanza, and he begins to undermine Ander and Rafe’s relationship to create more drama. Daniel is determined to protect his friend and his own reputation, but when he finds himself falling hard for Owen, there’s much more at stake than ratings.”
Review: This book is about best friends. How they have each other’s backs. Sometimes the family that you chose is better than the family that your are born into. Plot- Daniel and Ander have been best friends since they were eight years old. Both of them were dumped at a boarding school feeling the rejection of their family. Ander is a flamboyant, over the top fashion designer. Daniel is a conservative corporate event planner. Daniel has been Ander’s rock. Always there to talk reason to him. Now Ander is getting married to Rafe. Daniel couldn’t be happier until Ander conveniences Daniel to not only be his best man, but his wedding planner. Not that that wouldn’t be bad enough, but the wedding will be on reality TV. Unable to say no to his best friend, Daniel goes along with the plan. Now step in the drop dead former model current co owner of the production company shooting the Groomzilla show, and co-producer Owen. Instant connection for both of them, but will it last after the I do’s are said. The chemistry between Owen and Daniel was good, but I found both characters lacking excitement. I really liked this story, but I was at a loss with the pacing. There were times that I felt that I missed something. I thought that I must have fast forwarded a few chapters listening to this story. I went back and re listened again and still I felt like I missed weeks of the story. There was a wonderful HEA and very good character development. The narration by Nick J. Russo was very good. Keeping the characters with distinctive voices during the entire story.
