The Wedding Favor by Cara Connelly

Leave a comment

Texas cowboy Tyrell Brown should be elated that he just won the case against the insurance company who claimed that Ty pulled the plug on his wife after a drunk driver killed her, but mostly he is glad he never has to see that “bitch on wheels” NYC lawyer Victoria Westin again. That is, until, she is seated next to him on his plane to Paris. Turns out his close friend Isabelle is marrying Vicky’s brother Matt, and they are both in the wedding party. 

Both are weighted down by the obligatory emotional baggage: Vicky’s two-timing ex and the ghost of Ty’s wife. Despite their mutual disdain, they make a pact to get along for the sake of the wedding. To be convincing, they even have a flirtation going, but it doesn’t taking much acting for Vicky to pretend to like the hot cowboy, and Vicky is equally sexually tempting as she is sassy, making Ty see he may have finally met his match.

Connelly’s (Christmas novella The Wedding Date) sexy series starter goes off with a bang. The banter between two characters who have a love/hate relationship makes for a humorous and enjoyable ride with plenty of gratuitous love making throughout. Let’s hope Connelly continues the fun her next book in the series, The Wedding Vow.
