Book Summary from Goodreads
She has a plan. He’s about to change it.
Regan Wakefield is a headhunter in both name and personality: driven, motivated, and unafraid to pursue what—and who—she wants. Naturally, she’s thrilled when her friend's wedding offers her an opportunity to score Logan McCade, the practically perfect best man. Unfortunately, groomsman Brock McNeil keeps getting in her way, riling her up in the most delicious of ways. But Brock’s smooth southern charm isn't part of the plan...so how exactly did they end up having searing-hot sex?
Regan may pretend the erotic electricity sparking between them is merely a distraction, but Brock knows better. She refuses to see beyond the devil-may-care façade he presents to the world, while he sees straight through hers. Changing her mind—and getting under her skin—is a challenge he can’t resist. And when he wins, Brock will do whatever it takes to convince Regan that the best man for her is him.
Seducing the Bridesmaid by Katee Robert had more of a storyline than I initially thought. At first, it was difficult to determine where the story was going. It was a pleasant surprise to find that the characters were more complex than what they originally seemed. For instance, you have Brock who appeared to be the figure head of his family’s company; yet, when the reader delves further in the story it is revealed that his character is not as shallow as he was initially portrayed. Regan had her eyes on Logan. She seemed to think that he was all that and a bag of chips. He’s a part of her life’s plan, but as we all know sometimes plans are made to be broken. Meanwhile, Brock had his eyes on Regan, but he didn’t quite meet her criteria. I loved Brock’s persistence while trying to woo Regan even though his actions were slightly over-the-top at times. Regan’s priorities were a little questionable as she sought a man with the perfect status without taking into consideration what true love was all about. Yet, she was a realistic character who had weaknesses underlying her strong persona.
The romantic elements were an integral part of Seducing the Bridesmaid. The interactions between Brock and Regan were entertaining and a bit humorous as the one being pursued became the pursuer. And the tension between them led to downright steamy interactions.
Seducing the Bridesmaid is more than just another story using the bridesmaid falling in love theme. It’s the story of a bridesmaid who was part of the bigger picture and the supporting characters are an essential part of the plot. It’s a novel filled with well-developed conflicts as a result of plans gone awry and characters with strong personalities.
I would recommend Seducing the Bridesmaid to adults who enjoy contemporary romance novels with a high heat level and a compelling storyline. I am looking forward to reading the other books in The Wedding Dare Series.
