Well, I have to say the beginning of this book was one big “side holding” laugh!  I fell in love with 16 year old Delilah and her antics.  When we get to the point of Delilah at 28 – she is such a peach – trying to be the sophisticated suave corporate worker, instead we get blunders and flashbacks t

Very cute, very funny book about finally having the chance to be with the one person you've always loved. This was quirky, romantic and very enjoyable to read. Delilah Welling has been in love with Mathew Rowen forever. At 16, she has the misfortune of being part of his wedding party. He's marrying her nemesis, the irritating and vicious Darcy Strong. Unfortunately Darcy's mom is best friends with Delilah's mom, so being junior bridesmaid is pretty much mandatory for poor Delilah.

But Darcy is h

This book was a pleasant surprise. I had no idea what to expect from this story but I loved it. Delilah is so freaking hilarious and independent you can't help but love her. Hugh is amazing but can be a giant asshole. Stacie needs to be shot and Darcy needs to be slapped a few dozen times. The twist and turns & the ups and downs of this story keeps plastered to the book. Great book and highly recommend.

I must have missed the synopsis because when I read this, I'd expected it to be a teen novel. And when it wasn't I was pleasantly surprised. I guess the twelve years caption on the cover should have alluded me, but yeah.

So, in short, Delilah A.K.A Dee A.K.A Junior (to Hugh only) when a teen, has to be a bridesmaid for her nemesis Darcy, because their mums are friends. She has been assigned the role of junior bridesmaid—I know, didn't see tha

This is a funny, sometimes laugh out loud, book which I really enjoyed. The first portion of the book focuses on 16 year old Delilah. This part of the story was, for me, the funniest. All I will say is I will never look at chicken fillets the same way again!

The story quickly jumps forward 12 years. Delilah is working hard and living quietly, for the most part. She soon finds that the past can never be as buried as she hoped it was, and her life starts on a downward spiral she can't seem to find

At 16 years of age a family obligation finds Delilah Welling as a Junior Bridesmaid at the wedding of Hugh Rowan, a friend she has had a crush on her whole life, and Darcy Strong the girl she hates. She makes a humiliating blunder at the wedding and her life is subjected to embarrassment and ridicule in her home town. She cannot wait to escape small town Virginia and start a new life. Twelve years later Delilah has made a name for herself with a great PR firm in NYC. Her life is good, her job is ...more

Amy Baker has a way of capturing the audiences attention by making you fall in love with her characters. I swear, in the beginning of the book, we see Deliliah (Dee, aka Junior) in all her awkward adolescence. I mean, I know I was somewhat like her, but she was all in: adolescence in glorified, cringeworthy (I had to actually put the book down for a minute or two because I couldn't stand what was going on), awkward beauty. It was great.

Fast forward twelve years, and she's a career woman. Still s

2.5 stars for a hilarious main character. Both 16-year old and 28-year old Delilah are a hoot. This book started out being 4 stars (seriously, 16-year old Delilah is so funny) and I think it could have stayed there if not for the one too many misconceptions and assumptions made by Matthew. Matthew has so much swoonworthy potential but he doesn't use his brain or act fast enough in my opinion. I would read more from this author though.

Wow! I don't even know where to start. Junior Bridesmaid is the total package. It's the perfect mix of witty and heartfelt with a healthy dose of sarcasm.

Delilah Welling is 16 years old and head over heels in love with the man of her dreams. The only problem is he is also the man of Darcy Strong's dreams...and they're getting married...and Delilah is thei

Once again, Baker captivated me with her characters, made me laugh out loud, cry a little, and gasp. I've read all of her work, but fell in love with The Dream Weaver, and haven't looked back since.

In The Junior Bridesmaid, we meet Delilah: the sixteen year old, awkward, flat-chested, heroine of this story. And while most of the story takes place 12 years later, the first few chapters were epically funny, painting a perfect picture of an embarrassing incident she endures during a wedding where

This turned out so much funnier then I thought! It had me cracking up through out the whole book! Delilah was just oh I don't have words for her! The whole wedding scene was hilarious from the get go! Especially the 'lamb chomps'!!! But Stacey was a T-total bitch! I mean she just thought of everything didn't she? Although the way Delilah handled it was something in its own! Overall its a great read! I loved it!

Delilah has been in love with Hugh half her life and no one else will ever measure up to him. When she was 16 she found out something that changed Hugh’s life and kept him for making a huge mistake. She believes that he hates her and will never forgive what happened that fateful day. Little does she know, Hugh is thankful for her interference.
Fast forward 12 years and Delilah and Hugh meet again. Her attraction to him has not waivered, if anything, it is even stronger. Hugh finally admits how

This book was quite cute and I found myself laughing out loud on more than one occasion as I met Delilah Welling at sixteen years old preparing for the wedding of her mother’s best friend daughter Darcy Strong. Not only does Delilah not like Darcy or even care to be in the wedding, she has the biggest crush on the groom Hugh Rowen. Darcy does not care for Delilah and uses any opportunity to remind her. So, after, a disastrous “trip” down the aisle on Darcy and Hugh’s wedding day that never happe ...more

This was a quirky, giggle inducing fast read. I will never look at lamb chops the same again.
Delilah Welling has been in love with Hugh Rowen for as long as she can remember. The problem? He is 5 years older and engaged to marry her arch nemesis....YUCK! So what's a girl to do but suck it up and be a junior bridesmaid to what she considers the wedding from hell. Only things don't always work out the way we think they will. Devastated over hurting the only man she has or will ever love she runs f

I had hope for this book, but it fell really short/flat for me. The big reveal in the beginning that the main character ran from and left town as soon as she could wasn't that big of a deal. Embarrassing? YES! But not a I need to leave town mess. Then to think that the main guy in the book looked her up 12 years later for revenge is just non-sense! If anything he was going to thank you because you stopped him from making the biggest mistake of his life. And then a side character (a co-worker) ge ...more

Witty, funny, sweet, sad, shocking, surprising, frustrating you name it. Loved it!!

We all read a synopsis and anticipate what the story would be and as I started my journey into the pages I was enjoying it but said to myself ok, same old plot but was liking it all the same. Then bam 12 years later. I know it says it in the synopsis but somehow I forgot that part and the shenanigans start all over again. As I continued reading I felt every emotion but never expected the various scenarios that hap

at first I felt it was a little hard to connect with this book whilst in the teenage years but when it switched I began to love it Stacey needs a full force clatter across the face I felt that was missing BTW :-) at times I wanted to smack Hugh upside the head, I loved the twists and turns, this book was funny, sexy and romantic and I really liked it, well done Amy great read

I knew there was gonna be some laughing when i spotted the cover... that twisted pose somehow conveys the funny, snarky, yet touching story within.

I was not disappointed in any way. I loved this story so much! I will be reading this again one day, when I need something to feel good about.

Amy Baker is on my radar... I anxiously await her next book!

This is probably one of the most comedic books I have ever read. The shocking laughs were a welcome surprise.

I think this book is really amazing in my opinion. It has the same premise as the typical paperback romance novel with steamier sex and more laughs and I thought it came together nicely.

It was an interesting story. Little things bothered me. Hugh's betrayal was big. No cheating but trust.

When all the craziness of the day is through, writing is where I can be found. And, to be honest, I will sometimes close my eyes and pretend I didn't see the mile high stacked laundry basket just so I can escape to my laptop and get some thoughts down on a page.

If given the choice, I prefer music to television and warm weather to cold. And, despite my name, I really don't like to bake. :)
