What happens when a fake wedding date gets all too real?
Pretend to be famous bachelor Julian Cooper's girlfriend? Some women might be thrilled with the request—not Gretchen McAlister. Her job is planning weddings, not being the best man's date. But after Julian's latest celebrity breakup, "ordinary" Gretchen is the perfect PR ploy.
Julian is against the whole plan…until he meets Gretchen. Honest and beautiful—even beneath her fancy makeover—his new "girlfriend" makes him want something more, something real…
I adored the premise of this book! When you pair two unlikely to meet people into a situation like this, it can go several different ways. For Julian, he's enamored by Gretchen--she's real and isn't fawning all over him. That's entirely new. And for Gretchen, she gets to discover a side to Julian that not many people know about. During their time together, he has to loosen her up to play the role of girlfriend. The attraction is there, and when they touch and kiss, so is the chemistry. Since this is only temporary, and she's getting paid, there's no way it will go on beyond their one week, right?
One Week with the Best Man is another winning book from Andrea Laurence! Gretchen completely bloomed as the story progressed--her insecurities were there, but she started to overcome them as she gained confidence in herself. The romance between her and Julian was phenomenal, and you could feel it slowly turning from a job to something more. This book was a great continuation to the Brides and Belles series!
