    13. Review written for books n kissesHave you ever heard the line Chase him until he catches you Well that is the best way to describe this storyline While some of the story could be a bit cliche it was really a good story Ivy is the typical wedding planner who believes in romance, love and forever Ben is the typical cynical man who believes in reality, lust and for now But there is something about Ivy that he can not ignore.What I enjoyed about this book was the characters were very real and relata [...]


    14. I loved both characters, Ben and Ivy However, each of them had issues that cause me to rate this as a 4 star read, rather than 5.I love Ivy s basic character, her resourcefulness, her optimism and enthusiasm, and especially, her belief in happily ever after Her propensity for believing every man is the one , though, didn t quite fit with the rest of her character That, and her borderline obsessive desire to get married, seemed a little immature, and just didn t mesh well with the image I had of [...]


    15. I downloaded this book for free from I m not sure how long the promotion is going to last or if it still is , but this is a great book and well worth the time to download it or even purchase it Every once in a while there comes a book where it is like a crossover between romance and chic lit This one strikes a perfect balance I don t think it is a traditional romance because the book is populated with lots of secondary characters that each play a role in the story There is friendships and not w [...]


    16. 3.5 stars.Hm, well, this would have easily been a four star book if it hadn t been for the ending I don t know if it s a matter of the book needing words or if it s that the author and I disagree strongly about the heroine s actions and the fact that no one is weirded out by them view spoiler long story short, she plots to get the hero to fall in love with her by withholding sex even though they agreed going in that this would be a fling and then when he finds out and is justifiably pissed, eve [...]


    17. I DNF d this one around 60% I found it really slow and the dialogue not realistic Also had a hard time finding Ben sexy I ll try to be specific When they first kiss She puckered up and planted a soft kiss And then Ben quite expertly elbowed his way back into the driver s seatUnder the spell of the spring night, she d yearned for nothing than a touch, a quiet kiss She d wanted a sip of water to slake her lustful thirst then You really are like cotton candy Every layer I find is pink and soft an [...]


    18. This book have two characters with different belief and each holding tightly to their belief Ivy is a strong believer of love and romance hence her career as a wedding planner and Ben who believed that his generation is cursed from love The attraction between them is so strong that Ivy strived to prove to Ben that he is capable of love and the mission of Planning for love was being cultivated I find the story progressed rather slowly, and at times, i begin to feel bored reading it The book only [...]



    19. Great cast of characters and well developed romantic tale I thought the book just slightly on the long side and it got a bit to lengthy and drawn out in places, but overall if you are a sucker for a wedding based romance with a supporting characters that will entertain this book is a good bet

    21. After reading a lot of YA lately it is a nice change to read Chick lit The cover of this book was really girly and pretty and it felt light, that and both the synopsis and title sounded very fun so I decided to read this Ivy and Bennett meet for the first time as they work a wedding together, Ivy trying to make it the most romantic event for the spouses, and Ben trying to catch any embarrassing and shot worthy moments of it It becomes clear to both of them that they have an electric attraction B [...]

    29. Christi Barth s first novel was a delight The characters were fun to get to know and will be explored further in the two sequels to come which I will definitely look forward to reading and the dialogue was upbeat and sparkly Seeing wedding planning from a different perspective was eye opening, not just because the book doesn t diss bridezillas and their nutty mothers, but rather how very much detail goes into making that best day a best day Setting the story in Chicago also brought back fond mem [...]
