A gorgeously romantic short story, part of The Meet Cute series.

There's nothing as wonderful as a wedding, especially when it's your sister getting married. But for Maria, who struggles with social anxiety, being a bridesmaid is a struggle as well as an honour and when she finds herself overawed the person by her side is the last person she'd expect to understand…

The Boy And The Bridesmaid is the last book in the meet cute series and for me it stands out from the rest as it is more unique in the topics that is covered in the story. Maria's sister is getting married, her sister is the main character in The Boy With The Board, which you have to read as well as it is brilliant!
Anyway back to this story, Maria struggles with anxiety for the last couple of years and doesn't like social situations. So being a bridesmaid at her sister's wedding is a bit stress

What an utterly gorgeous short story to complete Katey Lovell’s Meet Cute series. It may only be a few pages long but somehow she manages to encompass the full range of human emotions from joy to grief, with fear and longing in between, in The Boy and the Bridesmaid.

There’s also a really effective and realistic sense of occasion in the depiction of the wedding so that it was almost like attending in person.

The Boy and the Bridesmaid is the absolute perfect end to the Meet Cute series. As sad as I am to see the end of these gorgeous short stories I have been so excited for this one I had to stay up and read it the moment it hit my kindle just after Midnight.

I'm so sad this series is over! But it was a brilliant ending at least, tying everything up nicely (no spoilers). What I've loved about this series is that you can really sense Katey's maturity as a writer - her protagonists get deeper, the issues more complex, and what results is a pretty perfect mini-series where you have a mixture of the fluffy and the more serious. I loved every single one and I can't wait for her first full-length work!

I found the story a bit flat compared with others in the series.
