The Wedding Date

The Wedding Date

by Jasmine Guillory

When I first picked up The Wedding Date, I immediately thought of the rom-com with the same name, starring Debra Messing and Dermot Mulroney. Boy, was I glad I decided to read it. Drew Nichols and Alexa Monroe find themselves stuck in an elevator in a San Francisco hotel. Dateless on the eve of his ex-girlfriend’s wedding, Drew convinces Alexa to go as his date. Drew, a guy who doesn’t do relationships, and Alex, filled with doubts and overthinking, actually really hit it off and this fake relationship quickly becomes a real one with weekend trips to see each other. With a meet-cute, a charming cast of characters, and an unmistakable whirlwind romance, The Wedding Date is a rom-com must-read!

This Love Story Will Self-Destruct

Eve and Ben’s story may span over several years, but their romance is definitely a whirlwind. They’re complete opposites—Eve is quirky and emotional while Ben is down-to-earth and practical. They meet in college and run in the same circle of friends, but they barely notice each other until one day they find a spark they never expected. From a one-night stand (at least that’s what Eve thought), they find themselves with a deep yet fragile connection that will change the course of their lives, forever. This Love Story Will Self-Destruct is a timeless tale reimagined with a millennial twist!
