Sam is really excited to be the maid of honour for her best friend. The only problem is that her ex-boyfriend, Liam, will be there with his hugely pregnant girlfriend, and Sam has already told everyone she has a new boyfriend. With the wedding celebrations being held in a castle in Scotland, Sam has no choice but to hire a man for the occasion – and pay for it via a bank loan. Jake is a struggling actor, he’s handsome, kind and funny. He behaves like the perfect boyfriend and everyone at the wedding seems to be in love with him. Including Sam.
This book made me laugh from the first to the last page. There was never a boring moment. Apart from a couple of exceptions, the characters are all funny and very likable. My favourite was the dog, Harry, who was the life of the party and got in many troubles. The plot is typical of the romantic comedies but its witty dialogues and engaging characters make it an enjoyable and engrossing read. (NP)
