Cody can be gross at times, saying things like, “...no matter how nice her rack," but he makes up for it.
This book is very hot, not at all for kids.Her writing is sensuous and erotic without being perverted or forced. It flows like a healthy relationship; a very sexy one. There's no force or abuse or manipulation, and there's lots of steaminess.
A little bit rushed. Sometimes things happened too quickly and I didn’t realize they were happening or what was happening for a while ...more

Usually I am not a fan of insta-love but this quick connection/romance between Cody and Julie worked for me. It was sexy, funny, had the right amount of angst, and had a sweet HEA.

Cara Connelly’s THE WEDDING DATE is a fun, fast-paced, sexy read. The hero, a hunky cowboy ER Doc, has met his match in a heroine who covers up her grief with kick-ass sass. This short novella is the perfect curl-up by the fire story and will leave you wanting more. I’ve pre-ordered Connelly’s debut novel, THE WEDDING FAVOR due out in January, and am looking forward to many more great novels from this author.
This is the first book I've read by this author. It looked like it could be interesting and it was only $.99. There wasn't anything really wrong with it. It seemed well edited from the standpoint of missing/extra/misspelled words. The story just happens so fast. It happens in about four consecutive days. Cody is a doctor who is new in town (he' ...more
