For someone not even close to thinking about marriage, contemporary romances with a marriage theme hit a sweet spot for me. K.M. Jackson’s mass market debut, Insert Groom Here, is the start of a trilogy that promises to hit that sweet spot over and over again. Jackson’s latest is a contemporary slow burn romance that has a cute romantic comedy sense of humor, and I just couldn’t get enough of it. As a fan of contemporary romance, I gobbled this one up.
Public humiliation was not on Eva Ward’s wedding agenda. After she and her fiancé, Kevin, competed in a contest hosted by a nationally syndicated morning television show, they won a dream wedding. A perfectly poised wedding for the perfectly put-together life Eva crafted for herself. The announcement on live television was the icing on the wedding cake—and then Kevin dropped the bomb.
He decided that he wasn’t going to marry Eva at all. Without consulting her first. In front of the entire country. Eva, normally calm and collected even with the cameras rolling, lost it, and handed him his lying ass on a platter while the cameras still rolled. In fact, she told him that she’d go forward with the wedding anyway. Any groom would do.
