Always the bridesmaid

Planning her sister's Italian wedding only reminds Jules Lane of how far away she is from finding her own true love. And worse, she's doing it alongside the brooding, mouthwateringly handsome best man, Stefano DeFiore.

Maybe the bride?

Having seen the destructive power of love, Stefano has no time for weddings but Jules's smile is captivating. Making her feel like the most beautiful woman in the world is one thing, but can he give this blushing bridesmaid a happily-ever-after of her own?

Meh.

Best Man for the Bridesmaid is a perfectly fine book. I was just bored or rolling my eyes or bored while rolling my eyes. Best Man for the Bridesmaid isn’t a silly book, per se. It’s just…has silly (but not funny) moments that sorta made me want to cringe.

In Best Man for the Bridesmaid, the heroine, Jules, is planning her sister’s wedding. Basically alone. Because reasons. Jules is SO alone planning this wedding that makes Stefano, the hero, pretend that they (Jules and Stefano) are the couple being married. I was irritated by that fiction – Jules could have pretended to be the wedding planner – and that was my first sign this wouldn’t be a quick read.

I pushed through quite a bit until I got to the point where I was bored of being bored. I then put the book down for…only God knows how long, really. A few weeks? IDK. I decided to skim-read to the end because the book was due back at the library on 25-Jun-2016. The more I skimmed, the less interested I was. I did read the ending. I felt it was pretty “meh.” In fact, the entire book was one long blur of boring-ness.
