Callie Kirkpatrick promised herself she’d never fall in love again.
After catching her boyfriend Ethan cheating on her, Callie decides to retire from the dating game at the ripe old age of twenty-four. Unfortunately for Callie, she’s going to have to see Ethan at her best friend’s upcoming wedding. Stranded in the airport during a weather delay on her way to the nuptials, Callie meets Nate Wright. He’s sexy and uncomplicated, and a one-night stand is just what the doctor ordered for a girl with a broken heart. Callie thinks she’ll never see Nate again —until he shows up at the wedding.
Nate is hell-bent on making Callie forget about her ex, and he makes her question whether she was ever really in love with Ethan at all. As she begins to fall for Nate, Callie wonders if promises were meant to be broken...
Cassie Cross is a Maryland native and a romantic at heart, who lives outside of Baltimore with her two dogs and a closet full of shoes. Cassie’s fondness for swoon-worthy men and strong women are the inspiration for most of her stories, and when she’s not busy writing a book, you’ll probably find her eating takeout and indulging in her love of 80′s sitcoms.
I recently found Cassie Cross and pretty much downloaded everything I could by her in one go because I just couldn’t resist after the first book I read. This one is amazing – no joke. Callie is attending her best friend’s wedding but ends up having a one night stand at the airport on the way there. It just so happens his name is Nate Wright and he might just be her very own Mr Right, except drama drama she’s given up on love after catching her ex cheating on her. They part ways – well she almost literally runs away – when she leaves before he wakes the next day but like every good love story they meet again. It just so happens he’s not the only Mr Wright in her life. His brother just so happens to be the guy her best friend is marrying. Question is, can she open her heart? I couldn’t put it down until the very last word and even then it was in my dreams... This book had me invested. I just wish I could find my Mr Wright. Nate is the perfect gent. He’s amazing. Incredible. Romantic. Sweet. HOT. Thoughtful. And the sexual tension is to die for. Meeting Mr Wright is well written and beautiful. It’s deep and meaningful and heartfelt. It all happens so fast but it’s no less real. It’s amazing how one weekend can change your life! I’ve found a new author to add to my top 10 list.
Cassie Cross is a new-to-me author. I enjoyed Meeting Mr. Wright.The characters were fun and relatable. I would have liked a bit more depth with Ben and Gabby's story. I would love to read about the secondary characters. I look forward to reading more from Cassie Cross.
“I always thought that when I got out of college and started doing my own thing that I’d be making a real difference. That I’d be changing the world.”
“What’s crazy is knowing there’s so much beauty in this world and not actively seeking it out.”
“You only get one life,” she says, interrupting me. “You have to fill it up with all the love and laughter that you can. Run away from those things long enough and you’ll forget how to find them.”
What happens when you do something out of the ordinary, like have a one-night stand. The next day you find out that that one-night stand is your best friend’s soon to be husband’s brother. And you will be seeing him even more because the wedding is in one wedding and you’re helping out with the wedding leading up to it.
This was a solid book. I enjoyed reading Callie’s reaction when she realized that Nate was Ben’s brother and that she was going to be around Nate for a whole week. I adore the Wright family. Callie had been hurt many times in her life and it was great to see her overcoming those hurt, insecurities and doubts. I love that Nate was patient with Callie and her insecurities and doubts. 3.5 stars.
I absolutely loved this story. Nate and Callie are just perfect for one another. I understand her angst after finding her ex in bed with another woman, it's hard to trust again. Spending time with Nate has to show her he is a different type of man. You can't be afraid to find your happiness...you have to go for it. I could not put the book down and I didn't want it to end. Definitely recommend this book for everyone.
FIVE WHOLE STARS!! Holy moly I loved this book. It gave me everything I wanted from top to bottom. First person, single POV, hero who is commitment positive, majority of the action takes place over just one week, but it really works. Heroine has daddy issues. Attentive and intuitive hero. I feel like this is just a strong book that hit all the emotions I wanted. Set in Virginia-ish? Then Texas and Colorado for later scenes.
Lots of feels -Callie and Nate. Met at the airport. She took a chance in an otherwise orderly existence. They are shocked to meet again at her best friend’s and his brother’s wedding. She doesn’t like risk especially what if’s /like getting heart broken again . Her ex had cheated on her . Course he’s at wedding too. See if Nate can win her heart . He’s great .
I want to like this book and I think it’s like able for other people especially those with patience. Patience because it takes more text than I’m willing to read to reach any conclusions in the plot. Excessive beating of the same topic over and over again. I just can’t anymore and didn’t after 51%.
Best book I’ve read this year. I could totally feel the passion between Callie and Nate...it was off the charts! The characters were likable and believable. Nate was genuinely a great guy! The story was ironic and cute. I really enjoyed this book!!
It was cute, quite funny and expectantly cliche (as the title would suggest), though I think the 'cliche' factor worked well with this book. While I had a fairly decent idea of what would happen, it didn't prevent the enjoyment of reading this book. The characters were entertaining, especially the snarky comments between the main two. There were several times where I laughed out loud, often more than just a giggle. The dialogue was quite cleverly written.
My main two qualms with this book are that one, it's too short, and two, it's written in first person. The first person is obviously a personal choice, some people like it, some people don't, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. For this, it took me quite a while to get into the story because it was first person. I'm fairly picky with first person and unless it's done extremely well, I usually don't like it. Often times I found myself jumping out of the story as I'm reminded again and again that I'm only seeing one point of view and it just feels awkward. It broke the mood several times for me which is a shame.
This book was definitely too short, not in a "I want more omg so good!" sense but in a "wow things are moving way too fast" sense. I felt like this book could've been MUCH better if it was longer with more details and descriptions added. Some scenes were I could tell they were supposed to be important and "groundbreaking" for the characters (ie the ocean scene with Nate and Callie discussing "difference making") fell quite short. I felt like those moments could have been a lot deeper and more meaningful to drive that character development. I think it would've made the ending that much more powerful.
Combining the two problems above, you get the opening scene at the airport. It was a rough start but when things started moving, it got better. I just wish more time was spent on certain scenes and character moments.
Nevertheless, the scenes with Nate and Callie together were done quite well and I loved seeing the two of them interact. (Not going to lie, that scene near the end at the cliff was quite adorable.)
Overall, I'd give it a strong 4/5 stars. It was good, and to those looking to read some cliche romance (with some sex thrown in), I'd recommend it.
You know the saying 'When you make plans, God laughs'? Well that seems to be the thought here. Callie has been burned, her boyfriend, *ahem* EX- boyfriend cheated on her. Now that is awful for sure but he did it in their bed and she still has to see him at her best friends wedding. Ex is friends with the groom. She's not looking forward to it but it'll work out, she'll make sure of it so her best friend can have a great wedding without drama. On the way to nuptials she's stranded in the airport because of the weather. She has a room but decides that she needs a drink. That's where she meets Nate, hot guy and a one night stand is just what she needs. She'll never see him again anyway.
Not only does she see Nate again but she's got to deal with him the whole time shes at the wedding. He's the groom's BROTHER! What she thought was a one night stand has now come back to bite her. She has sworn off having a relationship again, she doesn't want to be hurt but Nate is having other ideas. He wants to have more but there is only so much of her neurotic thoughts he'll take. She has to want to have more. He can't make her want a relationship with him.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a sweet romance with very little angst. I really loved the family and how they treated Callie. She was so lost at times, Ethan cheating on her really killed a lot of her self confidence. Nate helped build her back up. It's such a great story! If you read it and love it leave the author love in the form of a review.
Callie has been hurt many times in her life. The latest incident is when she comes home early to find her boyfriend in bead with another woman. This breaks her heart and trust. To top it off, he is going to be at her best friend's wedding, and he's bringing a date. In the airport on the way to visit her friend, Callie meets Nate, and is instantly attracted to him, so she decides to have a one night stand with him. But to her surprise, who shows up at the pre-weddinng festivities? Nate! Because he is the groom's brother. He wants her, but she doesn't want her heart broken.
This book was ok. It was well written, and sweet. Nate was very sweet and understanding, but I wish we could have gotten some scenes from his POV. The book was somewhat predictable. And at times Callie's attitude on relationships was annoying, though somewhat understandable. There wasn't anything too special about this book, it was just a nice, sweets story.
Callie meets Nate at the airport on the way to her best friend's wedding and they have a one-night stand... Except, it doesn't end there because they meet again. Turns out Nate is the groom's brother.
I like the sweet, heartwarming feel that the Wright family brings to the story. I also like how patient Nate is with Callie, considering all her insecurities and doubts. The plot is fairly simple and easy to get into if you're looking for a light read.
What I don't like much is how Nate seems to have the sixth sense to always understand what Callie is feeling. Their attraction isn't enough to make me believe it, and I even find myself a bit exasperated whenever Nate gives her a knowing, sad smile.
I also wish Nate could have fought harder for Callie near the end. He did make a cute gesture to lead the way for their happy ending, but I still think he could have done more before all that.

This was such a short, easy to read, romance book. I was able to read it in just one day.
The story is about Callie and Nate... and is written from Callie's point of view. Callie caught her boyfriend cheating and has promised herself she'd never fall in love again. Callie is on her way to a wedding that her ex is attending also. While waiting for her flight at the airport, she decides that a one-night stand is what she needs to help her get through this wedding. Little does she know, her one-night stand (Nate) will also be a this wedding.
Nate and Callie have a great connection, but Callie is determinded to keep her distance while Nate wants to show her that not ever guy is like her ex.
The novel was well constructed and keep me interested. The story was sweet and the characters were fun and witty.
If I could give this book all the stars in the world I would!!
sometimes your plans doesn't compare to what the universe has in store for you. Callie thought she was going to swear off love forever. Then she meets a guys in the airport that she's just drawn too. She thinks it will be just a one night stand....then he turns up at her best friend's wedding. Nate is just perfect. He's trying to get her to break down her defenses. He's just there for her.
Sometimes you have to throw caution to the wind and jump.
This is a true love story. I would have to say it's one of my favorite books this year thus far.
Callie's hang ups were really frustrating. Its hard to read about an h moving on from a cheating ex, when she hasn't actually moved on. She was still in the angry phase. Not over it. And because of that she treated the H like crap, because "all men are bad". He didn't deserve it, her ex did. That dragged this from a cute read, to a mildly annoying one. Because of this, I got bored while reading. And stayed bored until the end. I was happy when I finished so I could read something else. This wasn't the worst book I've ever read. I wouldn't reread it, and I wouldn't go out of my way to recommend it.
I absolutely adore this book! The balance between romance, great characters backing up the main stars, unexpected events, sensual sex full of emotion as well as quick relief. Nate and Callie - a chance encounter, a fortuitous coincidence, from opposite family structures, intense reactions. It's such an easy read because Cassie's writing is so fluid and the investment she puts into her story, the love she feels for her characters ensures that the reader becomes involved, intricately ensnared within the story, that you can't possibly not turn the next page to see what happens! A superb book! Highly recommend
This book was everything you love about a romance novel. It was such a cute & sweet story and you can't help but fall in love with all of the characters. You find yourself identifying with them and comparing them to people you know. Too many romance books have the dramatic element added with some sort of kidnapping or huge scandal, but this book was much more relatable. You can't help but be in a good mood after reading this book.
I received a free copy of this book through Goodreads First Read.
This book was such perfect, fluffy, sweet brain candy. Sometimes you just need a really sweet book with two great characters who are into each other and have a bit of a fairy tale moment. I loved that about this book. I just felt happy while I was reading it and could shut my brain down and cuddle up with it and sigh. So lovely and adorable.
Deduction of one star because mayonnaise is mentioned. Blargh. (I keed, I keed...or do I?).
As I thought about why I liked this story, it was hard to pinpoint the exact reasons why. I think more than anything I could relate to Callie, and how easy it is to decide to try to protect yourself from ever getting hurt again only to realize you're not happy with that choice either. It was fun to watch her grow and change. I am definitely going to look at other titles by this author.
## This was just OK for me. I didn't really like the heroine so I had a hard time connecting with her character. She was so negative and I just really got tired of her "woe is me" act. I couldn't figure out how the hero fell for her. She always seemed to be melancholy or jealous of one of her friends. She was even miserable at her best friend's wedding for Pete's sake. Anyway, 2.5 stars was all I could manage.
This book had me smiling, laughing, crying and even gaunting. It was a different kind of love story you don't hear about. All girls have their doubts when a man does them wrong. They think every guy is the same or they don't take a risk just so they won't get hurt. This book reminds you that love can come whenever and however no matter the length of time. When you know, you know. This is a must read!
I liked the sound of this book so decided to give it a go even though I'd not read this author before. I liked the main characters of Callie and Nate, I understood her feelings and where her reasoning came from and Nate was just adorably perfect. I did find it a bit on the long winded side but overall it was a decent book and I enjoyed reading it.
Cute romantic story about boy meets girl, she was afraid to commit 86% of the story. They only finally get together at the end of the story, so you don't get to read about their happy life. Not much else to the story. Takes place at best friend's wedding entirely. Would I recommend? If you like soft, cute romantic fairytales.
Well I really, really enjoyed this book. This is very true in life today. Having a hard time committing to someone when your heart has been broken. I was so excited when Callie went to get her man back, and Nate was there to welcome her with open arms. Great book. I recommend this book to all romance readers.
Such a cute fluffy book. Sometimes you just need to read a good romance book with adorable likable characters. Don't expect major plot twists and turns, it's predictable but still an overall cute easy read.
I`m happy I read this book. :)"Love is Love, Its not about how long it takes you to feel it, it`s about how much effort you put into it to make it last. Don`t act like its something that just happens. It`s something that you have to nurture.
