While I enjoyed the abundance of (accurate) sports talk in The Wedding Deal, I didn’t really care about the two main characters getting together. I wish they would have had more serious and heartfelt moments where I could really see them connect. However, I was overly excited about reading a sports romance where the author actually knew the sport she was writing about. Some may find it a little football heavy, but as the characters ran a pro football team, I felt it appropriate to so ce ...more

I’ve enjoyed several Cindi Madsen books and thought The Wedding Deal looked like the perfect book to feed my Contemporary craving. While I did like it, I didn’t enjoy it as much as I hoped I would.
I felt the book was much longer than it needed to be. I thought there was too much repetition and the story dragged a little bit. There’s only so many times I need to hear how distracted a character is by their attractive co-wo ...more
The Wedding Deal by Cindi Madsen is a well written and entertaining read.
I enjoyed the storyline, it held my interest from start to end and I enjoyed watching Charlotte and Lance come together.
Overall, The Wedding Deal is a sweet, fun and entertaining read that I highly recommend.

Cindi Madsen’s witty portrayal of both Charlotte and Lance tickled my funny bone and I had more than a few snort-giggles at Charlotte’s by-the-book behaviour and Lance’s hilarious unfiltered thoughts and words from the start. What follows isn’t quite t ...more

I received a free copy from the publisher via Netgalley and chose to leave a voluntary review. Thank you!*
I absolutely loved this book, and I don’t even like football. That being said, please give this book a try even if you normally not a sports fan.
I have been a Cindi Madsen fan for a while and she is one of my go to authors. I honestly think she can write a book about golf or the weather and it be super fu...more
When Charlotte accompanies Lance to his brother's wedding as his fake date, sparks fly. The book is easy to read and kind of predictable but a very nice beach read!
You can never go wrong with a Cindi Madsen book.

I tried, I did. But this book didn't work for me. The POV doesn't help to tell the story. And the plot doesn't make much sense. Charlotte is an obnoxious character not likable at all, I mean an HR manager doesn't tell the boss what to do or what not to do. Honestly, she was kind of TSTL.
Also, the amount of time the words paperwork and form show up drove me crazy, At some point, I was just counting them.

Charlotte has been working for the Mustangs for seven years now and is good at what she does. When it comes to her work the rules and paperwork are very important. Even if that means she needs to put her new boss in his place.
Lance just took over his grandfather's football team after he passed away. When an injury cost him his ...more
I received a free copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest and unbiased review/opinion.
3.5 stars — This book gave me some mixed feelings…there was so much I loved about it and that made me giggle and swoon! But I also totally saw the misunderstanding conflict coming from a mile away, and was kinda bummed that it played out how I anticipated. BUT! Then the ending just pulled me back in!!
The star of this book for me was the banter between Lance and C ...more
It was hard for me to connect with the
characters because of the writting style. I may be a little biased for first person point of view, but as I kept reading I was able to understand them better. I guess I just love it when I'm in their head. See things as they see them.
The story is cute and I enjoyed the pace. Definitely a slow burn. Also as a fellow Bookworm I loved all the other book references.

The Wedding Deal is the first book in a brand new series called Heart in the Game by Cindi Madsen. The first book is focused on Lance, the team's new owner, and Charlotte the HR manager. Lance recently inherited the team from his grandpa and he is trying to find the right combination of people in order to create a winning team and bring it back to its former glory. That's why he fired so many people and is making Charlotte crazy.
I loved Charlotte's character. There was something about h ...more
This one took me a bit to get through. There's really not a ton of drama and it was cute how Charlotte was all rules/control freak and football stats were her jam. Lance is just not all about the rules and he was cleaning house with his team. There was some parts that I was really moving along, then other parts that were a wee bit draggy that I found myself putting it down or I started to skim. With the parts that I did enjoy, Charlotte and Lance we ...more
I voluntarily read an early copy.
ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date March 25, 2019
Former quarterback Lance Quaid just inherited the most losing team in the NFL. He’s got only a few weeks until draft day to turn things around, and after firing more than half his staff, he can’t do it alone. Thankfully, his HR manager is more than capable, if only she’d stop focusing on “due diligence” and stop looking so sexy while she’s yelling at him.
Charlotte James has made a life out of following the rules. But nothing could have prepa ...more
