The Wedding Date by Zara Stoneley
One little white lie.
When Samantha Jenkins is asked to be the maid of honour at her best friend’s wedding, she couldn’t be happier. There are just three problems…
1) Sam’s ex-boyfriend, Liam, will be the best man.
2) His new girlfriend is pregnant.
3) Sam might have told people she has a new man when she doesn’t (see points 1 and 2 above)
So, Sam does the only sensible thing available to her… and hires a professional to do the job.
Actor Jake Porter is perfect for the role: single, gorgeous and cheap! Sam is certain it’s the perfect solution: no strings, no heartbreak and hopefully no chance of being found out.
But spending a week in the Scottish Highlands with Jake is harder than she imagined. He is the perfect boyfriend, charming, sexy and the hottest thing in a kilt since Outlander! And his dog Harry is quite possibly the cutest things Sam has ever seen!
As the wedding draws closer, Jake plays his part to perfection and everyone believes he is madly in love with Sam. The problem is, Sam’s not sure if Jake is acting anymore…
I would like to thank Netgalley and Zara Stoneley for writing a brilliant and at times funny novel.
I wasn't sure I would get into this story as it's not exactly my usual genre. But as I needed a funny story, I chose this as it looked good through the cover as well as the way the characters was portrayed. Sam is a funny woman who has 3 problems at a wedding. 1. Her ex boyfriend Liam is going to be Best Man at the wedding. 2. Liam's new girlfriend is pregnant. 3. Sam has kinda told everyone that she has a new man in her life but she hasn't. So what do you do when you have promised your best friend to be her Maid Of Honour. You hire someone who is gorgeous, sexy and really cheap - in walks Jake Porter.
The antics that this book brings between Sam and Jake as well as all the other characters are brilliant. I would definitely read more by Zara Stoneley in the future.
