Really enjoyed catching up with Aidan and Lilli.

This was a great follow up to Save The Date we got to see the sensitive and caring side to Aidan which made him even hotter. I'm so glad that after they got married they didn't just jump into bed together the build up and Aidan trying to woo Lilli was perfect.

The book has a big twist towards the end which I have my suspicions about and makes me want book 3 even more.

I loved the supporting characters especially Viola she had me giggling at her talk

A great follow on to the first book.

I really liked the way Aiden was romancing Lillie and the fact that she didnt just fall into bed with him.

Also happy that there is an explanation as to why they feel the way they feel for each other, as I hate it when its instalove and there is no real explanation as to how or why they fell in love.

If anything I think these books are 2 short, I have finished both book 1 and 2 in the space of a few hours.

I hope book 3 is longer.

Following on the heels of "Save the Date," we now find our couple following through with marriage contract and starting to build a romantic relationship. We don't get insta-love and I was pleased in that regard. I like the slow-build towards a possible HEA for them. There is more angst and drama this time around and made the book a bit more intense.

There are still those annoying editing errors. But all in all, I'm still hooked on the trilogy and looking forward to download #3.
I have to say I was in a crossroad where I didn't know if I should buy this book or not ('cause of budget) Now I'm glad I did because it was a really really good book, better than the first actually. Aiden was just dreamy *sigh*, but I have to wait until May for book #3!!!! Nooo

FINALLY some of that sexual tension has been relieved! So, obviously the deal has been enacted- the wedding finally takes place & it really is beautiful. Now all that is left is to consummate the marriage, stay married for four years (with no cheating) & produce an heir. Pretty easy, huh? Let's just say that Lilli & Aidan are quite good at completing their checklist. *wink wink* In between those things we get to see Lilli come into her own & find a place in this new upscale world with the childr ...more

Ok, just read that book 3 will be coming out next week, which is good because I don't want to wait too long. I hate that it seems Lilli and Aiden will be dealing with more conflict. I wish Lilli could accept that Aiden loves her and admit her live in return. She really is just being stubborn and she has 2 babies to think of, which really makes me mad at her. I understand it wasn't the best of circumstances, but geez...pull your head out and start thinking about the other people who need you inst ...more

I generally try to wait until all the books in a series are our before I begin because I'm not the most patient person. I read the first book without knowing it was part of a trilogy and loved it. I've been waiting for this book to come out and i wasn't disappointed.... EXCEPT.. It ended so abruptly. I know it's the authors way of setting up book 3 but it was almost like we were mid way thru a page and it ended.

I like the way the author has been pacing it. I was worried it was going to be more

Here Comes The Bride was the perfect sequel to Save the Date. Oh My Goodness. Aidan gets even better in this installment of The Modern Arrangements Trilogy. He shows his sensitive and vulnerable side, and I am a sucker for a vulnerable man. The Author had me believing one thing through the whole book only to surprise me at the end. I also like the way she develops her minor characters as well - they are fun and believable. Though Aidan and Lilli were clearly the hero and heroine, Ms. Grubor's ot ...more

Loved the book. Oh Aidan can he get any better with this caveman ways. Lilli is putty in his arms when he wears those glasses. Who doesn't swoon over a handsome man that wears glasses.

These two are meant for each other and I hope they both realize that before it's too late. All that fire and passion between those two, they are going to have a big happy family. Being a reformed playboy is hard to handle when you have to come face to face with his past but Lilli is a strong woman that will handle

I have to admit the second book in the series was much better than the first one after a second read. I usual ask myself why i didn't like that book when every1 loves it so i had a re read on it today and i enjoy it more than at the first read.

First of off all i LOVE Aidan, wow the guy can actually be sweet and kind i never expected that from him.

But Lillian she is quite some1 why does she had to over think everything on and on and not really giving Aidan a chance and thinkin

I loved this book, perhaps even more than the first one. Reading about Aidan and Lilli's wedding, their honeymoon and return to New York is a mixture of romance, funny and some oh so hot encounters. It is wonderful to read about a man who makes the effort to woo his wife and is so adorable that you can't help but fall in love with his character. Aidan is the perfect blend of boyish charm, sizzling hotness and alpha male. May can't come soon enough to read the conclusion to Aidan and Lilli's non- ...more

Definitely much better than the first one.

First, no more "Bitches" calling for the men. Second, Lilli's being feisty has gone with sense now. Third, Aidan was so much lovable this time. And last, much more of drunk Viola.

This is better than book 1. It had excitement, heart and a bit of love towards the end. For a while Lilli was still annoying as ever. Why did she constantly have to fight the inevitable? It was extremely frustrating and made me like her less and less. All she seemed to do was give out. However, when she finally got her act together, I enjoyed the book, only to have her freak out again towards the end. Anyway, I liked the story in this book and will be reading the next one.

Great continuation in this book. All the preparations for the wedding and the luncheons together and the women getting together were hilarious! Viola is super funny along with Phoebe. I liked the foundation that they were apart of. You could see how Lilli was reacting to that strongly. I was waiting for them to finally click as a couple!! Some good twists also in the story really made you think about what was going to happen next..on to book 3 for sure...

Loved it! It was better than the 1st book, by a mile. I absolutely cant wait to read the next one, and its taking ages to get released. I simply cant wait. I loved how Aidan and Lilli grew as a couple, they still had their silly moments, where they try to be annoyed with each other but just couldnt. It is well worth reading. Absolutely loved it.
Thanks Sadie!

I did enjoy this book a lot, I am finally glad they gave in and finally had sex!!!! The ending did shock me but it didn't. I knew that something was up and that it was going to happen. Lilli is very stubborn and at times, I just wanted to shake her because he was really trying!! I can't wait for the third book ...more

This one was much better than the first because Lilly was much improved. Although she still annoyed the heck out of repeatedly. Her handling of their sex life and the her treatment of Aidan when revelations were made was downright selfish.

Aidan was also more endearing in this one. The writing was livelier and the sex was more descriptive, if a bit lackluster.

I'm enthralled in this story!!

I love Aiden and couldn't wait to get the next part of his and Lilli's journey! The continuation of their modern arrangement/marriage contract was more than I hoped.

The family of characters in this Iverson clan are so memorable and funny and addicting!

Off to the next installment....
