Book Description:

Kissing her best friend's brother never felt so right…

Sela Sullivan is resolved to be the best maid of honor ever, even if it means tolerating the best man. Insufferable, too-handsome 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 frustrating—and frustratingly tempting—Luke.

As a world-renowned extreme-sports photographer, Luke is used to undertaking life-risking adventures. But risking his heart for the beautiful Sela Sullivan, who clearly still hates him for his rejection all those years ago? He didn’t see that coming. Sela inspires a passion he’s never known, and 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?

My Review

I was given this by the author for an honest review.

A story of true best friends, Vanessa and Sela. A wish gone terribly wrong, Sela went to the town's wishing well and wished that Luke (Vanessa's brother) would stay far away from her during Vanessa's wedding. After her wish she finds out that not only is Luke already in town, he will be the Best Man (she is the Maid of Honor) and he will be taking all the pictures of all the wedding activities.
Sela has always had a crush on Luke, but in high school he embarrassed her. The first day Luke sees Sela, he doesn't recognize her, she is able to show him how she has changed and what he missed while he's been traveling the world as a photographer.
As the story flows we see Sela and Luke falling in love and it really is romantic how it unfolds. Very true to life, unlike alot of romance novels we read. Sela tries to hide it from her best friend, but must confide and Vanessa takes it all in stride.
My favorite part is when Sela thinks Luke is leaving for an assignment after the wedding and he surprises her in front of his family and the whole town. The endings are not always my favorite part, but for this book it definitely was!
Highly recommend this book, it might even go on my reread list!!!
