A little fake relationship never hurt anyone. . .
Kate Massie has big dreams-they just haven't worked out. Yet. In the meantime, she spends her days clerking for a judge and her nights fantasizing about her tall, dark, and sexy gym crush. So when she runs into him one night, she's shocked to realize he was her shy, nerdy junior-prom date. But that isn't where the surprises end . . .
James Abell needs a date to his sister's wedding. So when Kate agrees, he's relieved . . . until one little lie turns their wedding date into a full-blown fake relationship. Only it doesn't feel fake-not the toe-curling kisses and definitely not the electricity. Neither of them is looking for something real . . . but they just might fall for their own little white lie.

Kelly Eadon’s debut, The Wedding Date, is an exceptional┬á sweet and smart contemporary romance read. It’s well written with a hero and heroine that are charming and slightly flawed. Though the premise isn’t unique, the characters and story line are. There’s plenty to anticipate and┬á just enough angst to keep your attention.┬á It starts 10 years after their lone date, a high school prom, things are about to get more complicated. Kate is my favorite type of heroines. She’s strong yet vulnerable and faces adversity head on.┬á Where I would have cracked, Kate thrives. Her no-nonsense approach is risky and smart, and she doesn’t second guess herself. It’s this confidence that attracts James.
This was just like trying a complicated court case. You never knew exactly what was going to happen until it happened, All you could do was prepare and keep your composure.
Eadon writes a charming and considerate man in James.┬á He had me from the go. Due to some well-intentioned meddling, he’s put in an awkward position with Kate. What I love about James is that he doesn’t lose sight of┬á what he wants with Kate and their chemistry is evident in their interactions.┬á However, his life is complicated by an ex who just can’t let go of him. But where I would usually find myself hating on this character, the ex, Brooke’s situation made me sympathetic.┬á┬á Although it may be a case of too little too late,┬á their history is long and the upstanding man he is handles this with thoughtfulness.
I┬á loved watching these two fall for each other.┬á I felt like I got Kate and James and my faith in them was well earned.┬á As well,┬á there’s a great cast of secondary characters as Kates’ friends &┬á James’ family add a genuineness to their growing involvement.┬á Eadon takes a sticky situation and shapes it so that it showcase her characters. The Wedding Date is a perfect read when you need a smart pick me up, feel good story.
4. 5 Stars and my recommendation!
