How far can one favor go…

Logan McCade arrives at his best friend’s wedding overworked and in desperate need of a vacation, only to discover his best man duties have been…expanded. He must coax Colton’s sister out of her shell, or risk her hiding in her room all week. Logan figures he can handle one introverted bridesmaid, but he’s not expecting how much he enjoys “handling” Sophie…or how much she enjoys being handled.

Socializing has never been web designer Sophie Brooks’s strong suit, but she’s determined to shed her wallflower image and embrace the “New Sophie”—a feat made easier with the supremely sexy Logan McCade tempting her to explore all her forbidden fantasies. If she’s not careful, she just might fall for the best man.

Sophie’s sweet, sexy, and delectably awkward demeanor brings much-needed calm to Logan’s hectic life. With the nuptials only days away, Logan is forced to face the possibility that his favor to a friend might have become something else entirely…and that he’s not willing to let Sophie go. Ever.

My Opinion

This is a mature book- as in 18 and older mature book.

Colton Brooks’ best man is Logan McCade the Logan McCade. A workaholic whose family and friends are worried will only have time for his business. As the best man he is given the task of babysitting Colton’s shy little sister- Sophie. As Colton’s old college roommie, Logan remembers Sophie as the shy sweatshirt wearing awkward teenager that would visit Colton sometime. Unfortunately for Logan Sophie has grown up. Sophie is still an introvert- but that is something she is working on. As a computer programmer, she does not have a lot of interaction with other people. So socializing is not her strong suit.

I enjoyed this book- I liked that Sophie admits that she has body image issues- I like that it is something that she is working on. I like that she is realistic in comparison to the other bridesmaids. I like that Logan’s work keeps interrupting him. I like that he is attracted not to the slimmer girls but to the girl that has a figure. I like that he realizes that his work has taken over his life. I like that he knows he needs to do something about it but doesn’t know how.

My favorite thing about this book though is how Colton brings Sophie out of her shell. He doesn’t let her sit in the corner and do nothing. He gives her adventures- even if she doesn’t really want them.

There were moments in this book where I literally blushed (southern gal here). There were moments where I was like oh no she didn’t (the um phone call scene). But there were other moments where I was like totally something I would do (falling off the bed). If you are in the mood for a quick read with lots of humor and feels this is the book for you.

My Rating 4 out of 5 stars
