He’s a tattooed shirtless bad boy. My best friend’s brother. And the jerk on the other side of my bed.
I didn’t know bridesmaid was code for babysitter for the bride’s brother, but if that’s what my best friend needs of me for her dream wedding to go off without a hitch, that’s what I’ll do.
Even if Theo Monroe has been a pain in my rear since third grade.
Even if he should be responsible enough to not wreak havoc at his sister’s destination wedding.
Even if it means we have to share a hotel room in Hawaii, which might be the final duty that breaks me.
Not only does Theo know exactly how to push my buttons, but he never wears clothes, he’s hiding a litter of kittens in his room, and he keeps showing up with fresh-baked cookies that seemingly come from nowhere.
I have no idea what’s up with the tension between him and the groom.
Or why he’s so proud of the world’s strangest wedding gift.
Or why I suddenly want to know what makes him tick. The story behind his tattoos. How he can afford to rent a convertible in Hawaii. And if maybe all of that utter frustration and irritation I’ve felt for him for years is suppressed attraction that a good girl like me isn’t supposed to feel for the biggest bad boy of Snaggletooth Creek.
But I do know one thing.
When I find out his biggest secret and the answer to all of my questions, it will change everything.
I hadn't read Pippa Grant before and I have no idea why. It's crazy that there are sooooo many talented authors out there that I haven't heard of before. I loved this story from page one. I love the author's humor. I also really loved the deeper side of these characters and their quirks. Super funny scenes (i.e. the pig crash scene) had me in stiches. Definitely worth the read and I'll be picking up her next book for sure.
Favorite Quote/Scene: “We're not so different, are we? Both of us living in the direction of the world's expectations of us."
My whole world stops spinning. Gravity ceases to work, and my entire existence floats out of my body, spiraling and spinning out of control to compensate for the fact that the world as I thought it was is not the world that actually is.
He's trapped by low expectations just as much as I'm trapped by high expectations.
We're basically the same.
And that changes everything.
I will never - ever - see him as a simple troublemaker again.
