Dakota Halifax loves to be in love. In fact, as one of Las Vegas’s premier wedding planners, she’s built a whole career around romance. Which is why her own wedding has to be nothing short of perfect. And then her fiancé jilts her. While she’s waiting in her wedding dress. On a cruise ship already out at sea.Once back on dry land, Dakota tries to pour her heart into her business and weekly wedding advice column, Get Ready to Wed. But how can the heartbroken celebrate others’ true love? When she reconnects with her childhood best friend, surprisingly sexy and all-grown-up casino bouncer Brendan West, Dakota wonders if maybe she can fall back in love with being in love.

But then her ex reappears, begging for another chance, and suddenly Dakota questions if she’ll ever understand love. Can someone once-burned and twice-shy ever find her way down the aisle again?

Review

 

Cindi Madsen won me over with Cinderella Screwed Me Over, and she has once again given me more characters to adore.  Ready to Wed is sweet, fun, and full of self-discovery.

I love Dakota’s character.  She’s confident and goal-oriented.  She does what makes her happy.  Dakota struggles with love after being left at the alter.  I love how she uses this awful situation to find herself.  She does go through a ton of emotions, but she doesn’t let it get her down when it comes to her business.  Dakota has to learn to put herself first when it comes to relationships.  I adore Brendan.  He’s sweet and knows when to cheer Dakota up. Their friendship picks up right where it left off years before.

Ready to Wed is a book with great pacing, and events that seem so normal.  We’ve all felt some level of rejection, and I think Dakota handles it well.  She’s put through some ringers in her professional life, and constantly having to colleagues.  She’s terrified to let herself feel anything again, while at the same time hoping she’ll be able to open up again one day.  I love how everything felt so real.  The characters are hard working and have their own flaws.

Ready to Wed is the PERFECT summer read.
