Tasty Book Tours Spotlight + Review + Giveaway: The Wedding Gift by Cara Connelly

The Wedding Gift
Save The Date #3.5
By: Cara Connelly
Releasing May 5, 2015

What's the New-Jan-Plan? Discover the answer in Cara Connelly's newest Save The Date Novella, and see how mousey Jan Marone gives herself the gift of living, laughing, and finally loving … all under the hot Key West sun.

She'd come to Key West for a wedding, only to discover the hotel had messed up her reservation. So although Jan Marone has to share a tiny room with sexy Mick McKenna, it shouldn't really be a problem. Mick's her best friend, and he doesn't think of her "that way" … or does he?

Mick McKenna loves hard and plays hard. His thick black hair, chiseled jaw, and hard, muscled body make him irresistible. But when once-innocent Jan walks into his hotel room, Mick can't believe his eyes. Now she's wearing a sexy bikini and telling him it's time for her to "get lucky," making him protective and tantalized at the same time.

Worried she might be in over her head, he decides never to leave her side … and suddenly their hotel room seems smaller—and hotter—than ever. Mick's always been hands-off with Jan—but has the right woman been under his nose the whole time?

My Thoughts:
Okay, The Wedding the Gift is a quick read. I'm going to be truthful I have only read one other book in the series and I don't remember Jan being in that book. She could have been, and she just kind of blended into the story. Anyway, we are going to press forward

In this quick read, we find Jan has decided she's done being dowdy and wants to spice things up. It probably doesn't help that everyone around her is getting married. Plus, the big 3-0 is kind of hitting her pretty bad, and it's time to find a man. Of course, she would love to have her best friend, but he's out of her league. So, why not enlist his help in order to get laid? What's the harm in that? Too bad he can't tell her he has a crush on her too. 

Yes, this friends to lovers story is fun to read. Yes, both of them are oblivious to one another feelings and believes that they are only in the friend zone. If only they could get their heads out of their butts and see that they would be good together. It's not easy getting out of the friend zone when you are unsure where the other stands. So, in The Wedding Gift you see Jan and Mick tumble through friend zone to lovers. It's a little rocky, after all Mick does have a reputation which doesn't help his cause to get Jan. Overall, it was a cute quick read with them romping around. Don't know what to read and would like to spend a little time at a beach wedding, you might want to give The Wedding Gift a try.
