When I first say this one, I thought it sounded like a fun little sexy read perfect for wedding season. I couldn’t fit it on my review schedule but I did feature it on my IG and then I started reading a little.
Next thing I knew, I was a few chapters in and wanted to share with you what I thought so far! I had to set it down since I had a couple of other books coming up to read but I am definitely going to come back and pick this one up soon!
If you love sexy, steamy romances set in resort towns—-which if you are anything like me you are feeling a little robbed of your summer vacation plans this year—-then you need to check this one out!
A South Beach bachelor party stirs up a scorching affair in USA TODAY bestselling author Jamie K. Schmidt’s Wild Wedding Hookup !
Concierge Mikelina Presley works for a luxurious resort club in sunny South Beach, Florida. She’s thrilled to land a two-week booking for a bachelor party at one of the resort’s most expensive villas—not least because the fiery chemistry between her and best man Bastian Ainsworth is deliciously tempting.
When the groom-to-be suddenly disappears, Mikelina and Bastian team up to find him, bringing them closer together. Their irresistible desire for each other is dangerously distracting, but the stakes are high for both of them: if they don’t bring back the runaway bachelor, Bastian’s little sister will have her heart broken. And Mikelina’s resort stands to lose out on the group’s lucrative booking—which would be devastating for her career.
As the search takes them all over South Beach’s sexiest hideaways, their racy fling becomes something much deeper and Mikelina finds herself falling for Bastian. But she hasn’t told him everything about her past, and a shameful secret weighs heavy on her mind… Can their passionate affair survive the truth? (summary from Goodreads)
First Impression Review
Harlequin is the gold standard of romances in my opinion. I have been a big fan of Harlequin and the Harlequin DARE part of the Harlequin publishing house features steamy and sexy titles just like this one and it starts out great!
Right away I felt invested in the characters and their story. Mikelina is a character that I think most female readers could relate to or at least sympathize with. I enjoyed her and thought she was fun but it’s Bastian that steals the show in this book.
Bastian is sexy and fierce but yet has a tender side. He’s everything a romantic hero should be but also has his own imperfections. With just the few chapters that I read I was eager to read more. If you love romances that sizzle then you should have this book on your radar!
