The cover of this book hides the fact is SEXY with a capital S! Heidi Rice's latest book is Rice at her hottest and sexiest best - and that's saying something. You may need an oiled man wafting an Ostrich feather fan over you as you read this ;). I do believe Carter is my current favourite hero. And Gina is a captivating complicated bad girl heroine who hides a mushy heart of gold behind a veneer of defiant confidence.

I rarely give 5 stars, what can I say? I guess I'm just one of those people that think there is always room for improvement. However, this book was five star worthy literally from the first page and maintained it to the very last! I couldn't find any fault with it at all.

Well, actually that is not necessarily true, the ending bit was a little cheesy for me but somehow Heidi Rice managed to pull it off. Even taking the Mickey out of it herself with the line "'Someone pinch me, I think I've been t

Every woman has a "I am bad" side, for some it is rather mild but for others it can get pretty much very out of control. And in the end they are left with a huge mess that does not seem is ever going to go away. So the key of course might be to stay good and far away from bad, but we all know there is NO fun in that, as the song goes Girls just wanna have FUN!

In the new Heidi Rice read we meet Gina, she can be bad and I do mean very bad, so bad in fact that she will sleep with about to get marr

When she's very, very bad Gina Carrington knows exactly how to have fun! But when she sleeps with her friend's brother, the off-limits Carter, she quickly discovers she's overstepped the mark. From the very beginning Gina and Carter have a strong connection towards each other. They were young when they met and Gina wasn't expecting anymore more from Carter other than a casual fling. A week or so before his wedding, Carter wasn't expecti

Secret affairs and dark pasts always make for gripping reading, so revisiting an affair that went wrong sounds like the perfect plot for the third in the series. The whole Gina-Carter thing had been hinted at and set up in the previous two books (The Unexpected Wedding Guest and Girl Least Likely to Marry) so I’d been dying to find out what had happened. And when it did I was torn. Torn between Gina, who was reacting to Carter’s rejection, and Marnie, Carter’s sister who lashed out the only way ...more
4 stars

The plot line was interesting. The main characters were enjoyable to read. I especially liked it if it has got to do with second chance and in this case, it was utterly good!

However, there are some things that aren't quite clear though and it's revolved around Marnie and Gina, Marnia and Carter. If those were explained in the book, I think I might've missed it. But they weren't! And I hope as well those answers I want will accompany in the next book. And, it's Marnie's book! Excited!

Carter sure knows how to lay it on thick, "you've improved with age," he said, his tone low and amused. "Like a fine wine." The boy sure is damn cocky, "second of all. You might have been my first, but I wasn't that much of a sap. You didn't take me, I took you." Heat cascaded through her at the seductive growl, which made her even more aware of the muscled thigh pressing against her hip." He likes to give ultimatums, "take them off, or I rip them off." He let his gaze drift to the delicate red ...more

This was s cute but heart wrenching story at times. It's only the second that I have read in this series & out of order, but I liked it. Gina had a lot of fire in her character, a real tough girl but not. Carter I didn't like too much in the beginning because he seemed to be arrogant. They meet up after a decade of a one night together that kind of ruined both their lives. He was to marry his high school sweetheart but two wks before she seduces him, he runs back to marry the girl & ends ...more
Four stars for sure. The chemistry between Gina and Carter was hot to say the least. And I think Heidi did a great job in writing out the characters. In this book, I honestly grew to love Gina. She was a bit too blunt and hard-core for me in the first two books, but we see a softer side in this book. Carter on the other hand is one of those guys where you either love him or hate him. There really isn't much between. The majority of the book I went from swooning over him, to wanting to punch him ...more

Maid of Dishonor is the third novel of The Wedding Season series. The series follows four college roommates as they reunite for a wedding. Maid of Dishonor brings Gina Carrington and Carter Price back together. Gina and Carter had a one-night stand when Carter visited his sister -- and Gina's roommate -- Marnie. That Carter was engaged to Marnie's best friend at the time helped to create a rift between Gina and Marnie that has never properly healed.

After hearing that Carter is now divorced, Gin
My review cross-posted from Wit and Sin:

In college, Gina Carrington was known as the “bad girl,” and she made no apologies for her naughty behavior. But the consequences of falling for – and sleeping with – her best friend’s engaged brother, Carter Price, were almost too much for even the tough-as-nails Gina to handle. It’s been ten years since the blowup that cost Gina one of her friends (and a heck of a lot more), and the sassy Brit is more than ready t
It’s an unusual combination of characters. Okay. I’ll say it. Male Virgin. You heard me. Oh, and the self-proclaimed “Tramp.” Hook, line, and sinker I had to know how this was going to turn out. And turn out it did. Now, it’s unusual at best to run into a male virgin in romance novels. It’s even more rare to run into male virgins who aren’t in some way scarred or bitter about their status at some point in the book. What I find great about Maid of Dishonor is that we’re introduced to Carter as th ...more

I spent several happy hours sitting in the autumn sunshine reading it instead of gardening!
The main character Gina Carrington is one of four close college friends and the story tells of her meeting up again with a very charismatic man, Carter Price, with whom she had a one night stand ten years previously.(Pause for breath!!)

I received my copy from Goodreads First Reads.

I thought this was a fun and quick read. I was particularly interested to read this I've read previous books in this series and I've always wanted to know what Gina was actually like.

I was quite disappointed that the story was so short and everything felt a bit rushed but there was chemistry between Gina and Carter and no one can deny it. They are perfect together but sometimes I felt Carter didn't actually love her...

The ending was predictable and
"Your butt looks real cute when you're mad."

Gina and Carter have a history. 10 years earlier, just weeks before he got married, Gina had a one night stand with Carter. It caused the breakup of the Awesome Foursome, Reese, Cassie, Gina, and Carter's sister Marnie, who were roommates. Now ten years later as the girls get back together for Cassie's and then Reese's weddings, Gina apologizes to Marnie and Carter. Only Carter isn't ready to apologize and move on. He wants to see where they can take t

Fantastic read! This is probably my favourite Heidi Rice to date. It's fun. It's sexy. I loved Gina and adored Carter - even more so with his clothes off! Just one hot superlicious read - highly recommended!

Looking for something to intrigue you after 50 Shades of Grey The Wedding Seasons short stories will keep you fed and intist
Sweet and steamy. Heidi Rice delivers once again. Gina was a sassy heroine with a hidden soft side that really came out toward the end of the book. Carter was a delicious southern male. The sex scenes were well done. And yet there was a connection between Gina and Carter that was really felt. My only complaint was that the book wasn't long enough. This book really could have used more to really dig into Gina's problems with her father and even her (view spoiler).
typical chit lit but it was a quick read and kept me interested.
This one was kind of interesting and a bit more deep than the HQ line as they both had to work through some pretty heavy issues related to family and self worth

great great story!
loved their chemistry! hot hot hot...

I won this on the real readers giveaway and I am so glad I did.
This was not the run of the mill romance and when Gina slept with her best friends brother she thought it was the end of the world especially as he was getting married a few days later.
10 years later we are with Gina when she bumps into Carter again, the sexual chemistry is still there but her friendship with Carters sister is just getting back on track. The plot inevitably goes into the will they/won't they but it is very well writt

Wow this series is a great read. So far I have enjoyed all three of the wedding series. Just thinking about picking up the fourth with Marnie and Dylan's story. If you are looking for a quick read with some fun added in read this series it has The Wedding Dress Diaries by Aimee Carson and The Unexpected Wedding Guest by Aimee Carson as well as Girl Least Likely to Marry by Amy Andrews, Maid of Dishonour by Heidi Rice and Last Groom Standing by Kimberly Lang.

Oh I loved everything about this book from start to finish and never wanted it to end.

I love the 'past lovers reconciling' trope and Heidi Rice executed it perfectly in the latest instalment in the wonderful 'The Wedding Series'.

Sizzling chemistry, the past overcome, sexy characters - what more could you possible want in a contemporary romance, except more of the same?!

.... Please Heidi Rice can I have some more?
Vicky Edwards
I won this book in a giveaway but OMG didn't realise its a Mills & Boon book! There are not what I thought they would be like from when I was growing up. You think their for old ladies about old romance stories boy was I wrong!lol.

The book was very raunchy and kept me in suspense waiting to know what would happen next and who with! I would definitely recommend this book the only downfall is its a bit short.

I have to say that again, HQ KISS doesn’t disappoint. I’m utterly in love with this line, and this series in particular. “Maid of Dishonor” is the third full-length story in The Wedding Season series. This entry deals with the Awesome Foursome’s British member, Gina.Read More
