THE LAST PLUS ONE 
by Ophelia London, Lindsay Emory, and Alexandra Haugton

Adult Contemporary Romance/Anthology

BLURB:

You are cordially invited to the wedding of the summer…

Do you have your plus one on speed dial?

Senator and Mrs. Ramsey’s youngest daughter is sure to be the loveliest June bride that the exclusive New England compound at Virtue Cove, Maine, has ever seen. But first, there’s a barrage of Wedding Week festivities to endure enjoy. And dogs. So many dogs.

While the bride and groom are basking in their Happily Ever After, behind the scenes are one b*tch of a wedding planner with an old flame that never burned out, a “quid pro quo” business arrangement in serious jeopardy of becoming a more personal partnership, and two best friends who might discover they’re a perfect match.   During bonfires on the beach, sunset yacht cruises, and tortuous wedding toasts, will the wedding magic rub off on the guests and turn someone’s “Mr. Plus One” into “Mr. Right”?

RSVP for three romantic novellas from USA Today Bestselling Author Ophelia London, Lindsay Emory, and Alexandra Haughton.

Review:

I love the idea behind The Last Plus One–one wedding, three “couples” who aren’t really, but they will be by the end of the weekend. Two are friends-to-lovers stories (one with a touch of sleeping with the boss thrown in for fun) and the last one is a second chance romance. Add to that the fact that it all takes place at one of my favorite places in the world (Maine, in and near Bar Harbor–we spent our honeymoon camping at Acadia National Park, that’s how much I love it!) and there’s puppies involved–a lot of puppies–and yeah, this was definitely going to be a book I was going to be signing up to read.

Bringing Home the Boss by Alexandra Haughton

The first novella was by a new-to-me-author who I’ll definitely be looking for more from in the future. Maggie and Cruz’s story started out strong (I loved when Maggie’s getting her dress unzipped made Cruz fall off his treadmill–LOL), got a little wonky in the middle, but had a great ending. Gotta love it when friends realize that there’s definitely something more there.

Rating: 4 stars / B

Always on My Mind by Ophelia London

I’ve read several stories by Ms. London, and enjoy her writing style. This one won’t ever be my favorite, though it had some very cute parts. It’s another friends-to-lovers story and it involves Maine blueberry pie(!)–two definite things in its favor. I did find it hard to believe that Ashton and Hawk would be able to spend so much time swimming in the 50-60 degree (F) water that’s common to that part of the Atlantic, though (trust me, it’s COLD), without ever mentioning how gosh darn cold it was once. (My husband thought I was exaggerating. He saw the error of his ways right quick, believe me. That was in July, almost a month after this story takes place.)

Rating: 3 stars / C+

When We Were Young by Lindsay Emory

Another new-to-me author who I’ll be looking for more from in the future. At the story’s start, I wasn’t all that crazy about either Claire or Tom–and soon didn’t like Tom at all (WTH was going on with that “prank” he tried pulling on her? Who does that? What vet does that??) but they spent the rest of their story making it up to me. Big time. By the end, I was a great big puddle of I-love-these-guys and was practically in tears over how they’d been thwarted in love years before.

Rating: 4 stars / B+

Overall: 3 1/2 stars / B
I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
