Seriously? I did NOT want to like this couple, this book, but I did. I'm too tired to finish my review (it's 1:37am), but I will be reading this one again! It was fun, surprisingly sexy, angsty, fun, and fast. Bless it's little cliched heart, all it needed was a secret baby-just kidding!

This was a goodread.

I didn't care for this one. I'm not a big fan of infidelity tales and that is what this book is all about. Emma and Max were set to be married 8 years before when he left her at the altar. Now, Emma has been asked to plan her friend Megan's wedding to Max. Gee, wonder where this story is leading? I should have known.

I didn't like either Emma or Max. I was really turned off by their handling of the whole situation. They keep saying they don't want to hurt Megan, yet they continually fool around a
Emma Delaney is one of the best wedding consultants out there. She can fix or make anything happen in any amount of time. Everyone believes in her ability because when Emma was going to get married her groom left her at the altar only sending a telegram saying he couldn't marry her, but Emma didn't wallow she turned he wedding that wasn't into a party/charity auction. That was when her business was born. Emma never really thought that she would ever see Max again, but when an old friend asks her ...more
Didn't take to either the H or the h. The h doesn't stand upto scrutiny as she was initially angling to get the H back from a good friend. The H playing hot and cold with the h, with almost casual cruelty. Great premise, execution..not so much.

I read the 2011 ebook edition. Don't know if different at all. I enjoyed it. Max thou I did not admire his thinking along the way. Meg was getting married in two weeks and did not have any thing planned for it. She called her college roommate Emma for help.
Emma started a business after she was left at the alter by Max. Have wedding dress, will travel. So other brides won't have to go through what she had to do.She takes what ever the worries are and solves them. Emma would be able to help Meg pl

La asesora de bodas Emma Delaney podía resolver cualquier problema porque creía apasionadamente en el amor y el romanticismo. Quería que todas las novias tuvieran un final feliz porque había experimentado personalmente lo que se sentía cuando una boda acababa en desastre. Ocho años antes su novio y amante perfecto, Max la había dejado plantada en el altar.
La boda de Megan Cooper sólo era un trabajo más, otra oportunidad para organizar una boda espectacular y romántica. Hasta que Emma co

‘The Getaway Groom’ by Milly Linholm is full of irony, and I’m sorry to say that it does not really works well with me despite of the emotional roller-coaster ride that I usually enjoy. Somehow, I don’t sit too well with the idea of someone’s fiance doing hanky panky things with his fiance’s best friend… even if they were former lovers and still in love with her.

I did not like the storyline. This book

Clearly cheating on an innocent friend, writing isn't bad, but I didn't really see any redemption from either H or h. And really the only reason we read these kinds of books to to hope for the H/h happily ever after, and I didn't with these two.
