Meh......she's written better. I found this one boring compared to others. Sorry.

Refreshing modern-day romance convincingly told in the first person. Avery, planner of posh weddings, meets Joe at one of them, where he manfully handles a scorpion problem. As Joe doesn’t show off his wealth, Avery embarrassingly mistakes him for one of the help. He persists in wanting to see her despite her own distaste for love after a bad experience and a philandering father. A difficult client provides drama as Avery plans a wedding for a relationship littered with red flags. She is drawn into the embrace of Joe’s family as she struggles with career choices, like whether she might become a reality star in New York. Avery’s half-sister and work partner, Sofia, is her only real family, while Sofia’s distant mother tends toward a “litany of complaints concealed within complaints, like a set of toxic Russian nesting dolls.” Sofia’s grumpy, secretly-besotted co-worker Steven provides another delightful story within the story. There are many beautiful and funny turns of phrase, like “Frantically I rummaged through my bag, a tote so heavy that whenever I set it on the passenger seat, the car would signal me to buckle it in," and “I was dismantled, everything inside me thrown into chaos.... You had to run with a feeling like that, all the way to sunrise.” Side trips to an animal shelter where Joe volunteers to photograph pets provide a sweet backdrop, where one toothless aging lap dog wins hearts.

I am a little confused with the synopsis of this book. I thought I already read it it based on Avery Crosslin, but then when I read about the sick father and the man who was responsible, I knew I hadn't read that story. I just got it from the library and read the back synopsis. I did read it! It's about wedding planner AVERY CROSSLIN who meets JOE TRAVIS THE PHOTOGRAPHER. A LITTLE DISSAPOINTING...

I love Lisa Kleypas, but I didn't like this one as much as the first three in the series. No need to read them in order, which is a good thing because I couldn't even remember what happened in the other stories. For some reason I kept thinking about Nora Roberts' Brides series. Usually I'm all over anything to do with wedding planning but this one just didn't have it.

Avery was an everyday type of character who meets prince charming. Will she let her past get in the way of keeping a good man?

I enjoy this author and the Travis family books. The previous books were better. This completes the series but was just ok. I was a bit disappointed.
Overall I recommend the series.

I love love love Kleypas's other Travis novels - Blue-Eyed Devil may be one of my favorite romances ever - so I was a little nervous about her revisiting the clan after several years away. I needn't have worried, as this is everything I've come to expect from the series: smart, love-cynical, professionally competent but romantically incompetent heroine narrator; over-the-top masculine hero just short of alpha-hole; tons of family togetherness (so many babies in this one!); banter that sings; and just general lovely hotness. There's enough back story to start on the series with this one, but only if you promise to go back and read the rest.

What a fun book!!!!! I loved the characters and their funny ways of showing each other up. Avery was such a comical character in this book. Loved it!!!!!

I had the pleasure of reading an advanced reader copy of this book. I really enjoyed it - I loved the humour, the sexiness, great characterizations and sense of place, all trademark Kleypas. Avery is the consummate wedding planner and if you love wedding and design shows, this book is a treat! Lots of appearances from characters from the earlier Travis books, but to be honest I found it a bit much, and detracted from Joe and Avery's story. All in all a lovely, romantic read.
