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 through hers. 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.
Wow! This series just keeps getting better! I want to go back and read them all over again just to find little things that I missed the first go around!
Yet again, this was a first by this author for me! This series has definitely been eye opening author wise! I can’t wait to dig deeper and find other books to read!
Katee’s writing style is so natural and real. I honestly kept forgetting that I was reading a story, it just felt so real to me that I found myself imagining that I was a part of it.
Seducing the Bridesmaid totally lived up to my expectations when it comes to this series. After this many books that all cover the exact same week and have the same set of people…well let’s just say that I am a tad bit attached! I have always loved books that do a dual POV, I just feel that you get a better understanding of the characters and the situation when you can see it from both people’s perspective. That being said…you can probably imagine my IMMENSE JOY when reading these books… seriously…I get to see the same week played out by EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER?!? Oh my gosh I think I just peed a little from excitement!! Don’t judge me!
Okay so on to this particular book and my thoughts…
Regan is a strong, independent and yet surprisingly vulnerable woman. She stands up for what she believes in and hides it when something or someone takes a chunk out of her. This was a character I could totally relate to! Brock…mmm….yep…it’s another male character that just leaves me drooling and forgetting what I was supposed to be talking about! I mean come on! It’s a sexy as sin southern boy?!?
Oh yes m’am sign me up for that!
He is what you would expect from a well raised southern gentleman! He opens doors, says m’am and treats a woman with respect…he is there to save you when you don’t want him to and oh so much more! Southern boys are just great…right?!?
Sure, Brock has his issues and isn’t perfect…but who wants a perfect man? When these two characters get together saying that “sparks fly” is a major understatement! More like fireworks fly and buildings blow up! Their personalities are just so good for one another…it was tough to read when they were being silly..I just kept wanting to smack them!
I mean really, did Regan honestly believe she was meant for Logan? (Besides, I bet Logan isn’t as perfect as his polished exterior seems…hmm..next book here I come!) She would be bored with someone so much like herself! She needs someone that is going to spice things up…and Brock definitely fits that build!
This book was amazingly humorous, filled with romance, and so easy to read and fall in love with! The story line was epic and melded with the other books pretty well. There were a few differences in conversations but that could have just been times where the other person was focused on their relationship issues and not focused on the convo right?
There were moments in the book that I hated both Regan and Brock for their hard-headedness…but they quickly made up for it! I found their romance to be endearing and sweet where as a lot of the others in this series were rough and tumble type scenes. I loved that Regan and Brock did the sweet stuff…well except for that first time! Goodness gracious…bless their little hearts for that one! lol
I will say that I am a bit confused and upset by the lack of development with Regan’s woods fear. I felt like there has to be more to it than a dang book! It seemed like it was going to take off and be a way of bonding at one point…but then it was just dropped! Well until Brock made an ass of himself..anyways! I guess I was just hoping for a little more explanation than the blow off one she gave Logan during said “ass of himself” scene.
Overall, I adored this book! The ending was just perfection! I just can’t even put into words how I feel about how Katee chose to end her story. After all that both Regan and Brock have been through in their lives…this was just a sweet moment! If it gives you a better idea of how relatable her characters are…I literally CRIED (I mean real, big honking “bless your heart” tears) while reading it! Kinda glad the hubby didn’t walk in on that one!
