Kiss Me, Sweetheart by Codi Gary

The bridesmaids and groomsmen for hire at Sweetheart, California’s Something Borrowed have the cure for celebrity wedding headaches. But even a job that’s strictly business can lead to the real thing...


Rylie Templeton had big dreams, until she quit culinary school to take care of her father and signed on with Something Borrowed. Suddenly years have gone by and she’s still a bridesmaid-for-hire, with her idea to open a gourmet bakery on the back burner. Scoring a high-profile wedding could help turn her life around, if only she didn’t have to share the spotlight with her coworker, the insufferable—and undeniably gorgeous—Dustin Kent.

Instructed to make it work, Rylie plunges into the wedding festivities with Dustin by her side. If only she could convince him to turn his spectacular charm on someone else! But the enigmatic, reformed playboy has his own ideas about romance, and they all include Rylie. As the nuptials get closer, Rylie realizes that Dustin’s wooing is actually working, and that the two of them might make a good team in more ways than one...

Rylie loves her job. She knows that it's not her life’s dream, but she's willing to do whatever it takes to get to her end goal. She has an amazing talent to bake and that's her ultimate goal – to open a bakery where she can bake wedding cakes, etc. for the company she currently works for.

Then you have Dustin. He's a wealthy man, arrogant and sneaky. He is attracted to Rylie but knows that his usual charms are not working. You get some background on his past and see that despite his wealth and charm, he has lived through some troubled times.

These two together are much more friends than relationship in this story. It felt very juvenile and rushed. Their interactions were fun and witty, but never quite to the level of romance or steam that I would have expected.

When danger comes lurking for Rylie, Dustin has to figure out whether or not he can do forever.

Overall, this was a quick read. You didn't need to use much in terms of figuring out who was the bad guy or good guy. However, it lacked in chemistry and romance.
