A wedding. An ex. And a secret.
Maid-of-Honor Dani Brown can handle anything that comes her way when it comes to her best friend’s wedding. That is, until the bride asks for a huge favor-Dani needs to distract the best man, who happens to be Dani’s ex. The ex she has fantasized dismembering for a year now. The ex she’ll have to suck it up and play nice with if this wedding is to go off without a hitch.
Businessman Jamie Kingsland is back in Seattle for a wedding. There’s just one problem – the maid of honor wants him dead. Except she doesn’t. Even though he knows he broke her heart last year when things got too serious and he panicked and left, she’s being way too nice about it now. And it scares him.
Something is up with his favorite bridesmaid, and he’s determined to find out what…

Bridesmaid Blues is the first book in the Wedding Favors series by Boone Brux. It’s a really great, fast-paced, second chance at love romance read. The main characters are funny and charming, and I found it quite easy to become invested in their story, and in their rocky romantic history.
I do have to admit that the storyline in this particular book is somewhat predictable, but the author did a great job of making it seem fresh, with characters who act natural and are true at their core. Because of the good characterization, I think a lot of readers will be able to relate to Dani’s plight of wanting to do right by her best friend, regardless of the pain it might cause her personally, and also with Jamie’s plight of doing his best to figure out how to live his life despite the many directions the people around him want to pull him in.
Overall, Bridesmaid Blues is a well-written and entertaining story, with characters who are sexy, fun, and just vulnerable enough for readers to relate to and root for them. So, if you like stories with reuniting lovers, characters with real life dilemmas and well-meaning friends, you’ll no doubt enjoy this read every bit as much as I did. Boone Brux knows how to tell a story, with characters readers will love getting to know.
As a multi-published and an award winning writer, Boone’s books drips with experiences from real life. Addicted to anything that might make a good story, she weaves tales that range from dark fantasy to humorous romance. Settled in the icy regions of Alaska with the love of her life and twin daughters, it’s not uncommon to find her tapping away on her iPad on a windy beach or the barren tundra. Be warned, anyone and every event is fodder for one of Boone’s novels.
