Summary (cr: goodreads)

She’s the one that got away. He’s the one she can’t forget.

Photojournalist Christine Forsythe is ready to tackle her naughty little to-do list, and who better to tap for the job than a hot groomsman? But when she crashes into her best friend’s older brother, Christine realizes her list needs updating. And fast. Tyler Dresco took her virginity during the best night of her life, then bolted. Now that they’re trapped together at a destination wedding, she’s going to get her revenge.

Tyler has never forgiven himself for how completely he lost control all those years ago. Being in Christine’s arms had felt right…until he realized what he’d taken from her in the hallway of a cheap motel. And oh, how she’s making him pay for it now. The insatiable heat between them has only grown stronger, but every time things heat up, Christine walks away.

With every encounter, things go a little bit further until Christine’s caught in her own trap of seduction. And before their time’s up, Tyler’s not the only one wanting more…
My Review: (also in goodreads)

This was the real start of the Wedding Dare series, although all books could be read stand alone, it was best if I read it in order (I started with Seducing the Bridesmaid). This book centers around the bride's big brother Tyler and Christine, one of her best friends, Though both of them have known each other for so long since Tyler is Kady's older brother, the two have shared a secret history unknown to all in Mexico. I loved this book way better than the third one because it had so much more than the (no surprise there) cliche sexual chemistry and impalpable tension radiating between them. They both share a history together and that is what I like about some stories, the ability to explore other things rather than the characters getting to know each other...the sense of familiarity. Tyler and Christine equally both have that tension and that silly banter. There were many parts where I laughed out loud at the silliness of the situation. I like how the author portrayed the characters, none of it was forced and that they get to revisit and confront their past and move on from it. Maybe I could also read more novels from this author...maybe.

Till the next read...
