    For some reason I thought this book was going to be howlingly funny. It wasn't. I only felt mildly amused when the old ladies were drinking vodka mixed with Ensure cocktails. I really liked those old ladies. They knew how to party. On the whole this book is just blah. Everything you'd expect. It was supposed to be enemies-to-friends, but they never really had that fun enemy rivalry at all. Within the first pages they kissed each other, so we didn't get a fun build-up either. Nothing is better if i For some reason I thought this book was going to be howlingly funny. It wasn't. I only felt mildly amused when the old ladies were drinking vodka mixed with Ensure cocktails.

Nothing is better if it's too soon. The word "premature" comes to mind. There was so much potential. They go to her family's ranch for a wedding and he poses as her boyfriend and there were hijinx. Her family was great, there was a crazy grandpa, and even the unexpected ex-boyfriend showing up (why, I don't know because he said hello and then seemed to just mysterious vanish. Why was he even there?). But, the interactions weren't funny enough. It tried. I give the book credit for trying, but it felt flat to me.

Right? Maybe? Will is sure she’s a gold digger trying to get money from his twin brother Web. Hadley doesn’t understand what she did to set Will against her but she’ll just stay out of his way. But fate and Web have other plans. A fantastic and sexy hot romance. Fun and sizzling, engaging and satisfying. Life isn’t perfect, but this romance comes pretty close. All the feels from the heroine and hero at odds, working things out, to flames running hot. The family dynamics add to the emotional fulfillment. Excerpt: “Adalyn hopped up from her bed at the same time that Hadley bounded up from the chair, and they met in the middle of the room and hugged in one of those mind-meld events that only sisters could have when you said about a million things without uttering a single word.” Excerpt from The Wedding Date Disaster. I received a copy of this from NetGalley. I also purchased a copy to share.

    4,5 stars for this absolutely hilarious, sexy and swoon worthy haters to lovers romance that I loved so incredibly much. Avery Flynn's books have been on my radar for quite a while, but I just never got around to actually read a book by her (up until now). So when I was offered the opportunity to review an e-arc of this upcoming release, I couldn't resist, because the synopsis looked so good. And after having now finished it, I can only confirm that it met with my expectations and that I'm so in 4,5 stars for this absolutely hilarious, sexy and swoon worthy haters to lovers romance that I loved so incredibly much. Avery Flynn's books have been on my radar for quite a while, but I just never got around to actually read a book by her (up until now). So when I was offered the opportunity to review an e-arc of this upcoming release, I couldn't resist, because the synopsis looked so good. And after having now finished it, I can only confirm that it met with my expectations and that I'm so incredibly happy for having had the chance to read an arc of this one. He raised an eyebrow in question, his fingers hovering over the edges of her open dress. One shake of her head and she knew he'd walk away. Both of them would act as if this moment had never happened- as much as that would be possibled. It's what she should do, because whatever was going on, she knew Will Holt wasn't for her. They weren't potential lovers. They weren't friends. They barely tolerated each other. Yet here she was, practically burning with want and nodding her consent. This was such a addictive read right from the start. The main characters are fantastic and everything you wish for to get in a haters to lovers romcom - the banter between them is just the best and their developing romance is endearing and suuuper sexy. They both dish snark back and forth and give as good as they get and I couldn't get enough of it; Loved it so so much! I was constantly thinking 'I should quote this and THIS. O and this!!!' but in that case I'd be quoting most of the book haha. Every page was just so fantastic and I couldn't get enough of it. The romance is intense, addictive and well devleoped. It's deliciously intense because the chemistry between Will and Hadley is just so frigging palpable - this is the kind of 'push and pull' you're looking for in a haters to lovers romance. The way these two dance around eachother, giving each other snarky comments and then start to hate f*ck... then discovering they have FEELINGS and trying to cope with all that. This all was executed perfectly. Hadley let out a soft moan of encouragement, rubbing against him as she forced her hands between them and reached for the top button of his jeans. A better man would remember why she was awful. Why she couldn't be trusted. Why this was wrong. But he wasn't a better man. Will was drowning in Hadley and he couldn't think of a better way to go. Next to having two fun main characters, I was really liking the supportive minor characters as well.. They made the entire cast in this book 'complete' and now that I finished reading the book, I need at leaaaast 2 more books set in this fictional world, with these characters. The dialogues between these friends and family members was just so much fun and made me LOL multiple times. This book isn't 100% perfectly executed in detail maybe, there were some reaaally minor thoughts passing my mind a couple of times in which I thought 'ok, maybe this could've been a little bit differently' but they're negligible when looking at the bigger picture, which is why in the end I go with a 5 star rating on GR. This is a book I'll be re-reading all over again on numerous times in the future, for sure. And that kind of book, when given a 4,5 star rating, will get a 5 star rating on the platform I'm rating it where there aren't any half stars available. This book is definitely worth it to up it to 5 stars instead of 4, so here I go haha. Truly: Flynn's writing was nothing short of hilarious and addictive. Her way of describing situations and thoughts and just everything really was utterly fantastic. I cannot wait to get my hands on more books by her, hopefully Very soon! In the meantime, to conclude this review I'll just say this: I HIGHLY recommend this book if you're looking for your next haters-to-lovers Romcom addiction. The Wedding Date Disaster is everything you're looking for and more and is THE book you want to pick up next. You won't be disappointed and you'll be thanking me for it - I know that sounds a bit arrogant, but trust me. This is a Romcom you.do.not.want.to.miss.out.on. There weren't any words, but they didn't need any. She met him halfway on each advance. "Say my name." The demand came out rought and hard. It wasn't fair to ask things of her when she was on the edge of her climax, but he needed her to say it. He needed to know... "Say it." "Will," she said, half begging and half demanding more. That was all he needed to hear. He'd give it to her- everything she wanted in this moment, it was hers. Thank you to the publisher for providing me with an arc of this book in exchange for me sharing my thoughts on the book.

Not willing to give up the charade she has her best friend along for the ride, masked as her boyfriend for the big family wedding back home. Only problem? His evil twin who is convinced she’s money hungry showed up and seems set on making her suffer. Despite how he drives her crazy, something about him keeps tugging at her. Time flew by as I enjoyed Avery Flynn’s latest romantic comedy. The Wedding Date Disaster is silly and heartwarming, it was a perfect light read for me that made me forget it all for a little while. Hadley and Will are really the perfect match, their bickering even was a form of flirting. I laughed so much, their antics to get back at one another truly revealed their feelings. I also loved that we got an honest portrayal of family, careers, and how much effort it takes to win someone over that you care for. The Wedding Date Disaster was an instant win for me, it’s another successful laughter inducing read from the queen of romcom. Arc provided.

    I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 3.5 stars The Wedding Date Disaster is a funny and sexy enemies to lovers and fake relationship romantic comedy. Such a great combination of tropes! Hadley Donovan and Will Holt hate each other. But they're always around each other because Hadley is best friends with Will's twin brother.

So im I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 3.5 stars The Wedding Date Disaster is a funny and sexy enemies to lovers and fake relationship romantic comedy. Such a great combination of tropes! Hadley Donovan and Will Holt hate each other. But they're always around each other because Hadley is best friends with Will's twin brother. When Hadley has to go back home to the countryside for her sister's wedding, she asks Will's brother to accompany her as her fake boyfriend. So imagine her surprise when Will Holt shows up at the airport instead of his twin. Will doesn't trust Hadley because he thinks she's a gold digger out to trap his brother, while Hadley can't stand Will's bad attitude. But now they're forced to spend time together as a couple. The forced proximity is equally delicious and hilarious. Will and Hadley have such sexy chemistry together and I really enjoyed their bickering and seeing Will adapt to the countryside. I think the transition from enemies to lovers was well executed. I adored Hadley's family and the role they played in Hadley and Will's relationship. Her family brought so much lightheartedness to this romantic comedy. The reason why I'm giving it an average rating is because I got really tired of Will and his stupid assumption about Hadley's motives and goals. He is kind of an asshole. Not the biggest asshole ever, but still an asshole. His assumption about Hadley is so far fetched that it is ridiculous. And his groveling wasn't enough for me. But the epilogue was super cute and memorable. Overall, The Wedding Date Disaster is a fun and quick read. If you like the movie The Proposal, then you'll enjoy reading this book.

    What a disappointment. I had pre-ordered this book after reading the author's ROYAL BASTARD, which I found to be a genuinely entertaining read. RB was funny and romantic. There may have been predictability to the plot, but the writing and the characters made up for it. This new one felt as if written by a different person. It's cliched, predictable, and, let's face it, boring. Nothing new under the sun here and the writing does not make up for that fact.

It's cliched, predictable, and, let's face it, boring. Nothing new under the sun here and the writing does not make up for that fact. Heroine Hadley moved a couple years ago from the family ranch to make it on her own in the big city. She works with charitable organizations and met the hero's twin brother through her job. The handsome and hunky (natch) twins are rich (natch). Wes, the brother, is best friend now of Hadley but his brother Will is not having any of it. He is suspicious of this relationship,thinking Hadley is nothing but a gold-digger. So, of course, Will is horrid to her. But, also of course, they are extremely sexually attracted to each other. Sound familiar? When Wes cannot accompany Hadley back to the ranch as her plus one for her younger sister's wedding, Will fills in, to Hadley's chagrin and dissatisfaction. And, yada, yada. You'll meet lots of family members, all plucked from CR Central Casting, and you could possibly be amused by all this if it is one of your first-ever-read contemporary romances. I personally found everyone to be shallow as a puddle and disliked or was indifferent to all, including the hero and heroine. The plot isn't entertaining enough, nor is the writing clever enough, to compensate.

    I love a good enemies-to-lovers story and this was a great one! I had so much fun reading The Wedding Date Disaster! It was really entertaining with great characters mixed with a lot of sweet and heat! I loved the animosity between Will and Hadley. I liked learning their history and what they were going through.

I really liked that simmering sexual tension underneath it all and how it really grew into more! It was smoking hot! Hadley was a sweet person that was going through a lot and I liked her figuring it all out, opening up, and being real. I liked Will though at times I found his one-track mind frustrating. I really enjoyed everything clicking for him and seeing Hadley in a new light. There are meddling family and friends in the mix that added to the fun. Hadley’s overprotective brothers were a bit over the top but their antics made for some amusing moments. I liked what the secondary characters added to the story and the predicaments that Will and Hadley were in. There were just a lot of great scenes that had me laughing. This was a delightful read. It’s one of those stories that had me smiling all the way through because of the witty banter and antics, the hotness, and the way these Hadley and Will fell in love. If you are in need of some sexy outrageous fun, look no further! Complimentary copy received for honest review.

This is my first book by this author and it certainly won’t be my last! The Wedding Date Disaster follow the story of Hadley and Will. Will thinks he knows what kind of girl his brother’s best friend, but he couldn’t be further from the truth. His assumptions are way off base, but try telling an alpha type that he’s wrong! He won’t believe you. Will tries to get his brother Web to see the light, but Web isn’t having and neither is fate. You see, Web is supposed to accompany Hadley to her sister’s wedding back home in Nebraska. Only, Web ends up really sick, so Will takes his place. Now, Hadley and Will are stuck pretending they are a couple and trying desperately to not kill each other. But you know what they say, those who fight the most have the greatest passion. The passion and tension between Hadley and Will is off the charts. Will these two give into their unexpected feelings or will Will’s assumptions come back to bite him? There’s only one way to find out…. Overall, I thought this book was a really fun read. I found the author’s take on this troupe to be fun and refreshing. Enemies to Lovers and Fake Relationships are my jam! And I couldn’t get enough of this one. I mean, Will and Hadley had tension in spades. Their chemistry burning off the pages. I will be the first to admit that Will drove me a little crazy with his hangups on Hadley, and I for one could not wait for him to get his head out of his butt. His heart was in the right place, and had been burned in the past. Hadley was easy to relate to. She loves her family even though they make her crazy. I loved seeing Hadley come into her true self and not be afraid to be the person she was always meant to be. The Wedding Date Disaster is the kind of book that you can easily read in a single sitting. The characters and supporting cast are fun and entertaining. This book more than delivered in the enemies to lovers story line. I loved the drama and pull. I loved the angst and family moments. In the end, this book hit all the marks I was looking for and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Hadley and Will’s story come full circle. *I was provided an ARC copy of this book via the publisher & NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review*

This has in no way influenced my thoughts and feelings about the book. I've read a few Avery Flynn books before and enjoyed them quite a bit. They were fun and entering. So when I was asked if I wanted to review her newest release, I said yes. The Wedding Date Disaster was a fun read. I enjoyed the characters and the story - however, I did feel that it was missing a few things. The Wedding Date Disaster follows Hadley Donavan as she makes her way back to her home town for her sister's wedding. She planned to bring her best friend as a decoy boyfriend, so she can survive her family. But things are flipped on its head when he sends his 'evil' twin brother instead. Hadley and Will Holt can't stand each other - or they think they can't. Will is only going on this trip to stop Hadley in her tracks. He doesn't like her and he will do anything to get on her nerves. But being stuck together in a rural town isn't always going to go to plan. For both of them. Hadley was an interesting protagonist. I didn't hate her, but I could love her. I liked getting to know her throughout the story, but I was waiting for something more. Hadley was easy to get along with and there wasn't anything in particular that I didn't like about her. One of my favourite things about her though is her passion. Even though she has just lost her job and is feeling pretty crap, she tries to find the good in it all. And that made the reading experience way more positive. Will was not an easy protagonist to get along with in The Wedding Date Disaster. For most of the novel I didn't like him at all. I thought he was an asshole for most of the book. I hate how he treated Hadley for so much of the book. And when I thought that he was going in the right direction, he does a full 360. I couldn't click with him from the start. He just read as an entitled character - which he was - but I made reading about him flat. I felt that both of Avery Flynn's protagonists here weren't fully fleshed out. They were almost there, but just never made it over the last few hurdles. Even at the end of the novel, it took a lot for Will to understand the way that he was thinking was wrong. I didn't see much character growth and I wish it did have more because I enjoyed reading the novel. While I didn't love Hadley and Will as characters, the romance was adorable and swoon-worthy. The Wedding Date Disaster is very much a hate-to-love romance. From the start, the reader can see all the angst and hate between the pair. It's full-on at the start. They both have their reasons for not liking each other but they also can't help but like each other as well. there was a lot of back and forth between the two. Along with the hate to love romance, this was also a fake romance. I loved this aspect of romance. It made for some great laughs, awkward moments and lots and lots of angst. As soon as I read the synopsis of The Wedding Date Disaster I knew that it was going to be a fun read. And it was. There were some really good moments, especially with Hadley's family. I love the relationship that they had with one another. It's great seeing fantastic family dynamics in romances. In saying that I do wish that we got to see more of Hadley's relationship with her best friend Web. I felt that their relationship was non-existence. I know that most of the book was set in the country. But I don't know, I wanted to see and know more about it. Overall I had a fun time reading The Wedding Date Disaster by Avery Flynn. It was a quick romance novel that was swoon-worthy and full of laughs. The Wedding Date Disaster explores family and believing in yourself. Hadley was a great protagonist and I did enjoy the romance. Will isn't my favourite love interest out there, but his sweetness made up for it. If you are looking for a quick 'summer' read kind of romance, then this one is for you.

    The Wedding Date Disaster is a sassy, fun, and flirty romance that I couldn't get enough of. I can always count on Avery Flynn to give me a romance with characters that I adore. Will and Hadley may not get along in the beginning, but it sure made their witty banter reach perfection. Hadley is a sweet, caring, and determined woman. When she gets an invite to her sister's wedding, her best friend, Web, agrees to be her date. She is thankful because she doesn't want to hear it from her family.

When she gets an invite to her sister's wedding, her best friend, Web, agrees to be her date. She is thankful because she doesn't want to hear it from her family. Things get complicated when Web gets sick and can't go. But Web's twin brother, Will is willing to fill in. Will is a wealthy bachelor who doesn't have the best relationship with Hadley...and that's an understatement. He and Hadley have always butt heads because he doesn't want his brother to get used by a woman like he once was. He is not looking forward to being Hadley date for her sisters wedding but sees it as a mother way of protecting his brother from another 'gold digger.' When Will and Hadley are in Nebraska for the wedding, faking their tension is going to be difficult. Hadley doesn't understand why Will thinks she is determined to use his brother for his money. She tries to be kind with Will to prove that she doesn't have bad intentions but nothing seems to be working. Being so close and in a car for a while helps thems bond and start to understand each other better. Road trips always seem to do that. I realize that their tension may have just been caused by their true feelings for one another. Can Will open up his heart again? I loved this romance so much because I just adore an enemies to lovers trope. Avery Flynn's writing made me invested in these characters and had me rooting for them the entire time. I thought her supporting characters like Web and PawPaw were amazing and played a significant role in bringing Will and Hadley together. I give The Wedding Date Disaster 5 stars. I loved this book so much that I could re-read it all over again because the chemistry between Hadley and Will was fantastic. I think Will's growth throughout the story and Hadley's ability to break down his walls will captivate readers. Fantastic romance read that you won't be able to put down.

    This was a fun read with an enemies to lover trope that really held fast to the enemies part throughout the majority of the story.

Hadley wasn’t a hard as nails heroine, instead she’s struggling to find what she needs to start her business all while barely holding on to the life that she’s living. Will was not the hard core alpha type of hero that I love, but I did enjoy him and the rather unique voice this author gave him. They were a lot of fun to watch as they bickered and interacted in private as well as in front of her family. Once this couple takes things to the next level, the chemistry sizzles across the page. They’ll definitely set your kindle on fire. The angst is pretty low with an uptick towards the end and while it was a rather obvious path to travel, I still enjoyed the direction this book and these characters took. Overall, this was a really good read for the afternoon and I found it refreshing for its combined tropes.

    A very enjoyable enemies to lover story. Hadley and Will do not get along. He thinks she is after his twin brothers money but is attracted to her regardless. She calls Will the evil twin and is so frustrated by him. But is attracted to him regardless. Their chemistry is undeniable and will curl your pages. The road to HEA is a fun, bumpy one, and I'm hoping for a bool about Web.

    This is a hilarious enemies to lovers romcom that had me laughing all the way through reading it. Hadley Donavan is going home for her sister's wedding but isn't looking forward to it. She's convinced her best friend to go along as her plus one, even though they'd never really dream of being anything other than besties. However, that bestie has a secret, dastardly plan of his own that neither Hadley, nor his twin brother, are aware of . . . . he fakes being ill and convinces his brother to go ins This is a hilarious enemies to lovers romcom that had me laughing all the way through reading it. Hadley Donavan is going home for her sister's wedding but isn't looking forward to it. She's convinced her best friend to go along as her plus one, even though they'd never really dream of being anything other than besties. However, that bestie has a secret, dastardly plan of his own that neither Hadley, nor his twin brother, are aware of . . . . he fakes being ill and convinces his brother to go instead. This doesn't sound much of a problem until you realise that Will believes that Hadley is a gold digger out to marry his brother for monetary reasons. He doesn't trust her and never has, their interactions always have sparks flying so how will a week together work out? Will they end their feuding or will their sparks cause a fire to force them apart or bring them together? This is such a fun read, what with car sickness, Hadley's secrets and her brothers, Will learning jobs on the ranch, an absent groom and fantastic PawPaw! Will is determined to sign them up for everything and the heat just keeps on rising. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this though there is some heartbreak when you learn about Hadley's Dad. There's plenty of fun and games in this hilarious rom com and I have no hesitation in highly recommending it! Copy from NetGalley.

    The Wedding Date Disaster is such a fun read. There is so much tension between Hadley and Will. There is that fine line between love and hate that Hadley and Will that just sets everything off. Will has trust issues when it comes to his family and you get why when you get to know him more. Hadley is sweet and just trying to make it in the city and show her family she doesn't belong on the ranch. I love PawPaw so much. Hadley's family is a little nuts and will have you giggling over everything. I The Wedding Date Disaster is such a fun read. There is so much tension between Hadley and Will.

    This was a light hearted romcom of a story between two enemies. Hadley needed a plus one to her sisters wedding to keep the charade that her life was wonderful at the big city. Her best friend was supposed to pose as her boyfriend but couldn’t make it at the last minute. Instead his evil twin, Will, took his place. There were a lot of flirty bickering and cute one ups with each other. Her family was an added plus to the story especially Paw Paw. The epilogue was adorable.

    1 to 1½ Stars I find myself drawn to this author’s books because of the cute blurbs. But sadly, I think her story telling style and my taste in books are just not a match. Sigh. I didn’t like how the gold digger angle persisted as long as it did. Frankly, I didn’t like the H. And when that happens, it’s so hard for me to fall in love with the story.

You’ll hear me say it in review, after review of books I enjoy, but the backstory of characters and how that impacts their actions can make or break a book for me. This book explores how past trauma impacts the characters’ current choices and assumptions they make in different situations. These two definitely have some family dynamics playing a big part in their lives, but I loved how the characters were confronted with the impact of their actions. And seriously, Hadley’s family is so much fun, I hope they appear somewhere else (maybe her sister and Will’s twin, perhaps?). We shall see! I definitely loved this one! Thank you Avery Flynn for the eARC in exchange for an honest review.

The tropes seemed fantastic and the setting even better, with some humour scattered throughout in the form of familial relationships that tended to embarrass rather than elevate. Will Holt’s grudge against Hadley Donovan’s friendship with his twin is one rooted in suspicion: she’s supposedly just yet another woman out to fleece his brother out of their family fortune and is in the midst of orchestrating an elaborate move that will clinch it for her. Obviously it’s all in his mind: Hadley’s friendship with his brother is just that—a close friendship built on love and support. It’s a great premise honestly, more so because Will has the history and the experience to back his claim up, and Hadley’s constant exasperation with him is so in line with her optimistic and sweet-ish character. There isn’t anything too vile in their reactions to each other nonetheless: there are cutting words, but nothing too malicious for a rom-com that’s built on mistaken opinions and the need to learn some life lessons from that…while falling in love by the end of course. I mostly had a good time with this, yet the long and short of it is, I found myself sitting in the middle of the line the more Hadley/Will’s sniping wore on. As much as I liked the ‘frenemies/hostile’ vibe, I thought that Flynn could have further developed something beyond the simmering attraction and lust so that it still didn’t turn out to be much of a surprise when both characters admitted to being in love. In fact, the repetitive statements about Will’s constant belief that Hadley was out to rip him and his brother of their family fortune worked perhaps too well—I could definitely understand and bought his deep suspicions—so the confession that he stubbornly hung onto this belief was because he was in love with her all along didn’t sit too well with me. In the whole spectrum of ‘hate-lust’ to ‘love’, there was simply too little in between before we were magically teleported to the end result. There was certainly more grovelling that needed to be done by the end—a heartfelt confession sometimes wouldn’t be enough before it was a fast-forward to the epilogue. It was a huge fun mess really if this is your sort of rom-com, but Hadley/Will’s buoyant adventure was somewhat let down by the rushed last quarter.

My thoughts and opinions are my own.   I fell in love with Ms. Flynn's novels back in her Hartigan series with Tomboy, and then followed her through to her Ice Knight series, and then back through her older novels. While I will say that   Tomboy still remains my firm favourite of all her novels, this one may well be tied for first place, and if not, I will say that without doubt, it's her best novel since Tomboy's release.   The enemies to lovers trope is not new, but, all the elements combined in this novel just made it work so well. One of the things that I love best about her novels is that the secondary characters actually are present and provide substance to the story, they're not just mentioned once and never heard from again. While at its core it still remains a romance novel, there were so many elements of family and friendship added that it just worked beautifully and felt like I was dropped into this new world that was fully planned out.   The romance between our two leads is beautiful, steamy and has its heart-breaking moments at times. I'll confess that there were elements thrown in that I didn't expect, and this just made it even better. Both characters are fully formed and likeable, and you just can't help but cheer for them both.   Spoilers Ahead I will confess that tears were shed during this book, which doesn't usually happen. It did get somewhat emotional at times, and added in (trigger warning: suicide) was a very sad turn in the story where we learn that our heroine's father committed suicide, having an impact on how her relationships and interactions with  family adjusted. It was beautifully written and emotional, and something not just added in for a shock value, but did have a point in the story. Spoilers Finished   As mentioned above, I think this is Ms. Flynn's best novel to date since Tomboy, and I will confess that it still remains my permanent favorite number one from her, but I think this one definitely has sneaked up to be joint first. A definite must-read, and the perfect summer romance!   Rating: 4.5/5

There is no way they are “just friends” and he’s out to prove that she’s the money-hungry conniver that he thinks she is. But there’s an energy whenever he’s around her. All it takes is a little food poisoning (OK) and a family filled week to find out that he may have just been wrong about her. Seeing her in her true environment, surrounded by family, he realizes that she just may be a sincere, loving, kind person who is “just friends” with Web. Until he overhears one thing and it sends him packing right back home. But, did he hear what he thought he did? Hadley can’t believe what is going on in her life. Losing her job because of a loser … now having to face her family. Thank God her best friend will be by her side to keep her sane. She’s been faking everything for a while now … what’s another week. Things may not be as cut and dried as she thinks it will be. First, Web not showing up but the evil twin does. Then, finding out just how much Will loves car rides. Then, him endearing himself to her family. She was supposed to be enjoying alone time not spending time with her crazy family. She’d do anything for her sister but, this is a little too much. So, putting on her big girl panties she’ll go with the flow. We’ll see how well Mr. Will Holt does around the crazies. Even though she’s the one that is starting to feel like she’s the craziest of them all. This story was hysterical from start to finish. From family game nights to PawPaw and Louise; from the first kiss to the proposal, I knew that Avery Flynn had another hit on her hands. The characters were absolutely wonderful, funny, serious when they had to be and all fit perfectly together. The story was told in a way that mixed the laughter, the hate, the surprise and the love as only Avery Flynn can. I laughed ‘til I cried then cried until I laughed. The Wedding Date Disaster was a wonderfully told story of enemies to friends to lovers. Review copy provided for a voluntary review.

All thoughts and opinions are my own. Hadley Donavan left her home in Nebraska some years ago to live the life she always wanted, but nothing is what she expected. She has to share a tiny apartment with her roommate, has a low level job and she is single. But she has to pretend to her family that she has the best life. So, when she had to come back to her hometown to attend her sister’s wedding she asked her best friend to save her. But then instead of her best friend, his evil twin strolls out of the airport. Will Holt doesn’t believe in love - He had a terrible experience with that -, he knows that everyone who is around him and his twin brother wants their money and their prestige, so, when he became Hadley’s plus one to keep her away from the million and one family events, he took this as a challenge to know her intentions. But nothing is what they expected. This is my first time reading this author and I have to say that I enjoyed it so much. “ The Wedding date disaster” it’s a good rom-com, it’s enjoyable, funny and catchy. I liked very much the interaction between Hadley and Will, that come and go of words and the way you can feel the chemistry between them, a good representation of enemies to lovers that I liked. I liked that this story was written from a third person's point of view, so you can understand them, why they act the way they do, how they feel when they are together, and their past. I liked Hadley’s family and how you can see that they are together and they love each other, although I would have liked to see more of them making Will’s life impossible and that way he could understand Hadley more, and I think that would be funny to see. There is a thing that I didn’t like about Will and the point that he wanted to be right every time even though Hadley showed him that she was a good person but he couldn't see it, I could understand why he acted the way he did but at some point I was tired of it. I think that if you want a good book to spend your time, this book is for you. I really want to read more books by this author.

This book tackles this trope, but instead of resolving it quickly (the way I'm used to tbh), it reappears throughout the book. You can easily understand why Will would have trust issues, what happened with his ex-fiance would mess with everyone, I'm positive. I wasn't even surprised that even after their honeymoon phase (which was incredibly sweet!), his insecurities would cause what is ultimately the biggest conflict in the story. But his change of heart, how he finally saw the light about Hadley's character and intentions didn't ring true to me. He had to be actively talked into changing his opinion, which is why I simply wasn't convinced that just like that he overcame some pretty big hang-ups. Will, in his bullheadedness, hurt Hadley badly and I felt he got off the hook too easily. This book needed a LOT more groveling, that's for sure. Hadley was a delight. She had fire and backbone, she stood up for herself, she didn't engage in foolish discussions with a certain stubborn idiot, but let her actions speak for her. I really liked her character and it was really easy to connect with her. Another thing that I really enjoyed is the chemistry and tension between Will and Hadley. Even though they get physical very early in the story, there is still some intense will-they-won't-they scenes and when they finally gave up fighting their attraction to each other, it was so satisfying. So despite the fact that the conflict and resolution were quite messy, it was a fun read. I definitely recommend giving it a go, but arm yourself with patience, as the hero is a handful.

    "The Wedding Date Disaster" was everything I've come to expect from one of Avery Flynn's books: laugh-out-loud funny, charming, and sweet, with just the right amount of steam. I highly recommend it for all fans of contemporary romance and romantic comedy, especially those who enjoy a good enemies-to-lovers and/or fake relationship tale. The main characters of this story, Hadley and Will, were both very likeable and well-developed, and I enjoyed their snarky banter immensely.

The main characters of this story, Hadley and Will, were both very likeable and well-developed, and I enjoyed their snarky banter immensely. Even when they supposedly hated each other, they couldn't quite hide their strong mutual attraction. I couldn't wait for them to stop fighting and finally give into their feelings! Will and Hadley were both dealing with more emotional baggage than was immediately apparent, and the connection they formed while spending time together on Hadley's family ranch was lovely. I think it surprised them both to realize how much they understood about what the other was going through, but their relationship really brought out the best in both of them and helped them overcome a lot of what was holding them back from moving forward with their lives. Aside from Hadley and Will, I adored the book's secondary characters, who added a tremendous amount of depth and humor to the narrative. First, there was Will's twin brother Web, who was also Hadley's best friend and played an instrumental role in bringing the two of them together. In addition, I enjoyed getting to know Hadley's family, particularly her grandfather, PawPaw, who never hesitated to say exactly what he was thinking or show off his competitive nature. Hadley's siblings were a lot of fun too, and it would be great to read stories about them (and Web!) in the future. Overall, I absolutely loved "The Wedding Date Disaster" and can't wait to see what Avery Flynn comes up with next! *Review copy provided by the publisher via Edelweiss.
