I don’t know what love is anymore.
Well, that’s not entirely true, but I’m going to tell you a little secret: I’ve lost the spark.
You know the kind of spark I’m talking about?
Where butterflies take flight in your stomach from two hands innocently colliding. Or catching your breath when you first meet someone attractive. Yeah, that spark.
Except I haven’t felt that feeling in forever; there is nothing left inside of me.
Normally, this wouldn’t be a problem–but I’m a writer on a serious deadline, and my editor is breathing down my neck for a romantic, Nicholas Sparks type love story. No pressure, right?
That’s how I find myself flying across the country to crash a wedding in the name of research, dress and heels stuffed into my small suitcase.
It should be the easiest book research ever. Drinking some free champagne, basking in the love of two strangers, and tapping into my romantic side. That will be a breeze. I’m a pro. I can handle this.
Until I mistakenly end up in the wrong hotel room, naked as the day I was born, with the sexiest human I have ever met staring me down, wondering what I’m doing taking a shower in his bathroom. I don’t think calling it research will get me out of this pickle.
Last year, I was given the chance to read Meghan Quinn’s Three Blind Dates. I loved her writing, but wasn’t a fan of the love triangle trope used in the book. Regardless of that, I thought the book was extremely funny and I was curious to see where Quinn would go with the other characters. Because of this, I was super intrigued to see what Quinn would do in Two Wedding Crashers.
Beck was probably my least favorite of the three guys in Three Blind Dates, but I adored him in Two Wedding Crashers. The chemistry between him and Rylee was off the charts and I loved their back and forth banter. They quickly became one of my favorite romance couples and I simply couldn’t get enough of the two of them.
Beck was a really complex character, with a troubled past and I loved to see how Rylee helped to heal him and give him something to look forward to in the future. It made for a sweet, sexy, and fast paced read. And I adored the fact that Rylee was a writer, and her friends were fellow authors. It automatically helped me form a connection, and I was immediately sucked into her story.
If you’re looking to give Meghan Quinn’s try, I highly recommend the Dating By the Numbers series, especially Two Wedding Crashers. I promise you won’t regret the decision!
I was first introduced to Meghan Quinn through her novella in the Team Player Anthology and fell in love with her. Her stories are so funny and witty that they have me gut laughing from beginning to end. I was so excited to review Two Wedding Crashers and I was not disappointed!
The Story. I felt the story was very well written and fast paced. It was easy to read and kept my interest despite the fact my binge watching of Teen Wolf was calling my name, haha! I adored ALL of the characters in this story. They definitely kept me entertained with all of their hilarity.
Rylee. I loved the fact that Rylee was an author because that immediately made me like her. She was so stressed with her deadline that she wasn’t looking around to smell the roses. Beck was the perfect remedy for that. Rylee was an extremely likable character and I couldn’t wait to see what she would do throughout her journey.
Beck. Beck was a live in the moment type guy who was struggling under the guilt from his past. I really enjoyed reading Beck’s story and humor. Rylee and Beck were just beautiful and perfect together.
I recommend this book to those who love: romantic comedies, fast reads, and fun characters.
Overall Rating: 4/5 Stars!
Chills scream their way down my arms and legs, my nipples pucker, and just like that, with one word, all humor vanishes from our little conversation and awareness of this all-consuming man wrapped around me hits me hard.
Gathering myself, I say, “Tell me something Chris and Justine know about you.”
“Hmm.” His thumbs hook under the waistband of my shorts, playing with the lower part of my hipbones. His touch spurs on my pelvis, needing to rock, begging for him to go lower. My toes curl in my sandals and my back slightly arches, reaching for more. “Something they know about me.”
His mouth doesn’t stray from its position against my ear, and his hips start to slowly move underneath me, his legs tangling with mine. Involuntarily, one of my hands hooks the back of his neck as I hold on tightly to him, feeling like I need support from the onslaught of sensation I’m feeling.
I hear him say something, but it doesn’t register in my brain, which has turned to mush as his thumbs stray from my hipbones to right above my pubic bone.
There is no denying how turned on I am, how wet I am from his mere touch, how much—despite my reservations—I want this man.
With each stroke, my head turns farther and farther to the side until our noses are touching, Beck’s head bends forward to meet me halfway. My eyes flutter shut for a brief moment before I open them and am captured by those flecks of green and gold.
The air stills around us, our breath mixing, swirling between us, our lips so close.
One swipe of this thumb.
I can’t breathe.
I can’t focus.
Another swipe, my head leans even closer, my tongue wetting my lips.
One more swipe . . .
My heart hammers in my chest, my skin prickling with awareness.
Beck brings his mouth even closer, only a whisper away now, and he waits.
His breathing feeling erratic beneath me.
And I’m gone.
I bring my mouth to his, slowly parting my lips ever so slightly, just enough to maneuver my mouth across his.
A low, provocative moan escapes Beck as one of his hands snags the back of my head and holds me in place, almost as if he lets go, I’ll disappear.
Needing more, I shift on his lap so I’m straddling him once again, my hands on his bare chest, feeling the powerful sinew that holds him together.
Our lips press and mold, mingling, taking, begging . . .
Beck’s tongue runs against my bottom lip, eliciting a moan from deep within me, lighting a fire so hot, so wild, my hands start to travel up his neck to his cheeks where I grip him, positioning his head so when I open my mouth, I can expertly dive my tongue onto his.
He groans, his lap shifting against mine now, his hard-on pressing against my wet and throbbing center. I match his rocking, using my position on his lap to take advantage of his length I can feel through his board shorts.
This is exactly what I didn’t want to happen, but God, am I happy it has. Maybe I really should live in the moment, maybe I should take advantage of the opportunity, maybe I should…
Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.
Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.
Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
