There were three guarantees in Tricia Patterson's life:
1. Her friendship with Sean Peterson was rock solid
2. She had a career that she absolutely adored
3. This summer was going to be the death of her

With the proverbial "Always a Bridesmaid and Never a Bride" becoming her new mantra, Tricia didn't know how she was going to survive this year's round of weddings. Six of t

I don't know how the hell I ended up with a clean book on my Kindle (shock and horror) but I thought I'd give it a try. Besides the fact they just slammed the door in my face (yawn) I'm definitely not feeling it. No passion, too much hesitancy and he's about to go running scared. Cutting my losses and moving on.

No rating as I did not finish.

There is a scene in which the MC comes back from a wedding with the love interest and they get into her house and she kicks off her shoes, then they argue, they make up, they make out, then she kicks her shoes off again to lay in a sofa with him, they make out some more, and finally she gets up from the sofa to undress sexily and ends up wearing only her panties and her shoes. I think that says enough 👍🏼🙈

Tricia Patterson has received six invitations for summer weddings. Since she doesn't want to attend without a date, she asks her best friend, Sean Peterson, to go with her. They figure posing as a couple this will keep well-meaning friends from playing matchmaker. But when Sean is unable to attend the weddings, he sends his older brother Ryan in his place. Ryan is happy to help out Tricia by posing as her boyfriend. And as he gets to know Tricia better, he believes they may end up planning a wed ...more

So apparently this was a "novella" a "precule" to the series. Well I feel this was not enjoyable . I didn't feel like we saw the characters grow or anything. Where was the chemistry the love the twists. Like other reviews have mention this felt more like a tell then a show. And for personal experience with my literature degree. I know telling over showing never goes well. Ryan and Triche were one dimensional characters. Learning the twist about Sean made me mad. Anyway dislike this book. ...more

I just need some time… I’m not sure when it stops being what I need and starts being cowardly.

My Review:

Tricia and Sean had been best friends since high school, and when their circle of friends all seemed to be getting married and planning their weddings (six in one summer), the two unmarried friends established a pact to attend the wedding together and pretend to be a couple to fend off the inevitable matchmaking. But Sean couldn’t make it and asked his older brother to step in a

Loved this story!! It seems that everyone Tricia Patterson knows is getting married. Dreading the upcoming summer wedding season with 6 invites already in hand, Tricia and her best friend Sean agree to attend all of them as a couple. That should help keep everyone from giving them the "so sad you're still single" looks! That plan goes up in smoke when Sean is involved in an accident that leaves him hospitalized and out of the country. Luckily for Tricia, Sean's brother Ryan agrees to stand in fo ...more

Read as part of a duet ~ Marry Me: Wedding Season / Hired Bride by Samantha Chase & Noelle Adams

The Wedding Season by Samantha Chase:

Again … very refreshing and fun. This is another one of those stories that has been done over and over again. When that happens, it’s really hard not to make it predictable. This one is a pretend relationship. And again, as it always does in romance fiction..the heart will somehow get in the way. The fun part is in the when or the why or the how. Samantha Chase nai

Great premise, but a little disappointed with the development of the story. Also, wished I knew beforehand that this was clean. The fade-to-black moments were such a bummer. I liked the heroine and thought she made a lot of sense throughout the story. The other characters, not so much. Her best guy friend sounded very much like a girl friend to me, and young to boot. I also was a bit iffy about the romance between the hero/heroine. I knew they'd hook up, but why was a mystery. They didn't seem p ...more

This was a quick, ok read. I liked the relationship between Ryan and Tricia, but the "fake relationship" aspect of it was very, very short and that kind of frustrated me because it was the main reason I decided to read this one. Ryan's mother drove me insane and I wasn't a big fan of Ryan's brother (and Tricia's best friend) Sean. If you're looking for a quick read with lots of romance then you might enjoy this. ...more

Bad point: I had to read a wedding theme book for a paranormal book club.

Good point: This book was free on Kindle.

Bad point: Bad, bad, bad book.

Good point: The book was 200 pages. Suffering was relatively short.

It had a good plot, nice characters and I liked the author's writing style. I also liked the 2 lead characters but felt the pacing wasn't quite right. I didn't feel as if I understood the H's motivation, we knew he was an insular guy, a workaholic but his story just fell rushed. The h was more fleshed out, and a very likeable person. It was a nice easy read. ...more

Oh dear lord.

The first thought I had when I read the synopsis of this book was "lol this is ridiculous"
But it was 4 am and I couldn't sleep so naturally, I went for it.
And guess what? It really was bloody ridiculous.

So basically this book is about this girl Tricia who around 28? 30? 75? (I have no damned clue) and who's still single, and since summer is approaching, she gets a gazillion wedding invitations, she doesn't wanna go there solo because people would start pitying her and crap (Yeah be

It seems like everyone Tricia knows is getting married. She's tired of going solo & receiving "poor Tricia" looks. Her friend Sean is invited to the same weddings & is tired of everyone wanting to fix him up with their relatives. Sean comes up with the bright idea of them pretending to be a couple & attending the weddings together. You know what they say about best laid plans! Due to circumstances beyond his control, Sean is unable to come home for the summer so he sends his older brother, Ryan. ...more

A super quick read, but I didn’t really enjoy it. It’s not steamy enough to be a trashy romance book, nor is it fluffy enough to make for cute chick lit. Its formulaic, which isn’t always a bad thing, but the whole story seemed very rushed, and all the obstacles thrown at the couple were not only easily overcome, but also resolved very quickly.

There was a lot of telling us they main couple got along rather than showing us. They be leaving for dinner and then it would cut to something along the

Soon after meeting Tricia Patterson, her parents broke up, no longer living together. So no both Tricia and her Mother moved and settled in Long Island. When starting. School she met Sean Patterson. They were both lucky as they both lived close by. And with time both become best buddies.

Now looking forward of 15 years poor Tricia is still single. She wasn't happy about it as being invited to so many wedding she would want a partner. Luckily she had known Sean was also invited he agreed to go wit

Sometimes Ryan just needs to use actions instead of words, “because... this.” He lowered his head and claimed her lips with his. Ryan was kissing her. Really kissing her." I liked that Ryan could admit when he had a problem especially when his hands can't stay off his woman, “Sweetheart, where you’re concerned, I definitely don’t have patience..." I really liked this book. ...more

cute and short story about two family friends falling for each other. The characters are fun, although you find out two of them did something manipulative and I don't think they apologize enough for it. Otherwise everything is light and frothy, nothing getting spicier than kisses. It only took about two hours to read this, so don't expect much depth. But it's a fun way to pass a couple hours! ...more

4 sweet stars.

Sometimes in life all you need is a sweet easy read and The Wedding Season was just that. A sweet, quick, fast glowing read that kept me interested without weighing you down with mass drama. Samantha is good with her wedding stories, and this was no exception. Worth every one of thosev4 stars.

"The Wedding Season" is part of the series "Enchanted Bridal" and the Prequel. I have to admit, I read the first two books out of order without realizing this was a series. There's no problem with that because they can be read as standalones except when you're reading the epilogue. This installment focuses on our heroine Tricia Patterson and our hero Ryan Peterson. Tricia is best friends with Sean, (Ryan's younger brother) since high school. The Plot: Tricia and Sean have six (6) weddings to att ...more

Matchmaking at its best

Trish and Sean have been friends ever since she walked into a new high school and had the pleasure of sitting down next to him. They have a unique bond that screams best friend. When they both start getting a ton of wedding invitations, they plan to go as each others dates. That way they aren't getting fixed up by anyone with good intentions. When Sean gets hurt at an overseas job, he can't go to any of them. Rather than let Trish get sent to the wolves, he sends in his ol

Can you imagine having 6 weddings to go to as a single woman?  You would be expected to catch the Bride's bouquet.  You would get the "when are you next?"  I would had done what Tricia did- have a pretend boyfriend.

Tricia is the best friend of Sean, but he was in a bad accident and can not be her date for all these weddings.  Sean asks his brother, Ryan, to step in for him as a favor to him.

This is the kind of book I would want to read at the beside or a pool.  Romantic.  Written well.  Great ch
