Book Review: Kissing the Maid of Honor, by Robin Bielman

Sela Sullivan is determined to be the best maid of honor ever, even if it means tolerating the best man. Luke Watters is not only the guy who humiliated her at a kissing booth in high school, but he also happens to be her best friend’s older brother. Positive he’s the same arrogant jock, Sela vows to focus on her duties and steer clear of the sexy man. She even drops a wish into a well to make it so they spend as little time together as possible. As a world-renowned extreme-sports photographer, Luke is used to risking his life. But risking his heart? Never. Especially to someone who so clearly hates him. But the more time they spend together, the more he craves her. But can he prove to the maid of honor he’s become a man of honor?

I fell in love with this book from the start. Quick wit, smooth writing, deft dialog, and lovable characters. The setting was great and the secondary characters were a wonderful addition. The plot was perfectly paced. The wishing well was just fabulous. The tension and snark between the hero and heroine was palpable and added apprehension and heat you can't ignore. The only downside was the internal conflict. Sela hated him for what he once did to her, and Luke had the typical can't commit mentality. External conflict was stronger. Neither deterred me from reading. Recommended.
