Archibald Hill is handsome, single, and he’s going to his best friend’s wedding ready to make a conquest or two. After all, everyone knows weddings are the perfect setting to get lucky.

Summer Knowles used to have a life—friends, family, a sister who’d do anything for her—until she blew it all away with a terrible mistake. Now, attending her twin’s wedding as the party’s undesirable number one seems like more than she can handle. So, when a tall stranger with smoldering ice-blue eyes offers her a therapy of seven nights of no-strings-attached fun, she might even ignore that he has a beard and accept.

Problem is, Summer has never been good at keeping sex and feelings separated…

Review 

Summer Knowles messed up big. Some time ago, she believed herself in love with her best childhood friend’s boyfriend and slept with him. Ostracized by her friends and judged by her family, she had to keep living with the guilt.

To make matters worse, her twin sister Summer was having a one-week destination wedding, and she would have to face all her former friends, including the one she cheated. She was terrified by the prospect.

The first person she met at the hotel was the infamous best man, a guy her sister had described as a total player and womanizer.

Archibald Hill was sin incarnate. He wasted no time in trying to seduce Summer. She sent him packing but, after overhearing some unflattering things about herself in the ladies room, she got a little distressed and ended up in his hotel room.

I loved everything about this story. Summer had to deal with so much remorse. It must be so hard not to be able to forgive oneself.

Archie was lovely, caring, and respectful. Hidden behind the lady’s man exterior was someone worth knowing.

The couple had incredible chemistry, and there were some steamy scenes.

A lovely romantic comedy! I read it in one sitting, I just could not put it down.

Actually, I liked it so much that I went on and read the two previous books in the series (see info below).

Disclosure: I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.


Also in this series

To The Stars and Back tells the story of Lana, the friend Summer cheated. It is a lovely girl-meets-celebrity story. From Thailand with Love is the story of how Summer’s twin sister, Winter, met her future husband while taking photos for an archeological expedition. A fun and lovely read with an Indiana Jones vibe.

  1. Interesting story we got here! The struggle internally dealing with the guilt and having to hear others commenting on the situation throughout the years after the event is not easy. Hopefully Summer figures something out! Will have to read to find out 😉
