A sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…

She’s the one that got away. He’s the one she can’t forget.

Photojournalist Christine Forsythe is ready to tackle her naughty little to-do list, and who better to tap for the job than a hot groomsman? But when she crashes into her best friend’s older brother, Christine realizes her list needs updating. And fast. Tyler Dresco took her virginity during the best night of her life, then bolted. Now that they’re trapped together at a destination wedding, she’s going to get her revenge.

Tyler has never forgiven himself for how completely he lost control all those years ago. Being in Christine’s arms had felt right…until he realized what he’d taken from her in the hallway of a cheap motel. And oh, how she’s making him pay for it now. The insatiable heat between them has only grown stronger, but every time things heat up, Christine walks away.

With every encounter, things go a little bit further until Christine’s caught in her own trap of seduction. And before their time’s up, Tyler’s not the only one wanting more…

A series become an addiction once the reader can't put the book down and is dying to read the next book, and all the authors in the Wedding Dare series have accomplished that. Moreover, Jen's Wedding Dare story is sexy, hot and definitely swoony. But it's also painful and it tells us the past that Tyler and Christine once shared leaving us wondering the whole story if these two would make it in the end and see past their old mistakes.

Christine, sister of another well-known character of Diane Alberts' books (Shillings Agency series), has always had a thing for her best friends' brother, Tyler. But she's trying to get over him, she even made a list, 'cause it's not healthy for her to keep comparing every man with Tyler and he's not an option after how he walked away all those years ago in Mexico.

However, Tyler's not that scared boy anymore and he's willing to show Christine how good they are together and how much sparks fly whenever they see each other. But, what's more important, he wants to show Christine that he's changed. That he's no longer the guy that runs to not have to face the problem.
Always the complete gentleman and trying to save everyone, Tyler has a hard time trying to convince Christine and redeem himself for walking away from her on Mexico. But secrets and new problems arise as they relationship grows from a dangerous and hot teasing to a intense relationship that is definitely more than lust.

I love this story 'cause Diane wrote it from both Christine and Tyler's point of view. Since these two share a painful past that has tore them apart all these years and that made Christine hold on onto the grudge of him leaving her, readers needed to know how the two characters were feeling and thinking about this particular incident and Diane Alberts did it amazingly great.

Once the two characters get to explore their past, their future starts and it's definitely hot, intense, sexy and full of emotions and definitely sexual tension. It's clear that these two are made for each other and the more their resist each other, more strong their desire become.

As for the character's personalities, Christine's one of those girls you instantly like. She's suffering from her painful memories, not only the ones caused by Tyler, and she's still that strong woman willing to be over that and have her fair shot at a happy life. I admire her and understand how she acted all throughout the story. Also I cannot say that I am beyond happy of how her story ended.

Tyler is the hot male that the all the Wedding Dare's books have promised readers. He's always the gentleman and the hero, trying to save everyone and do what's right. Thing that lead him to be a doctor. But there's a big difference from what readers learn of the old Tyler and the new one who wants Christine desperately. And I loved to see that change.

The plot is not repetitive and it has everything a good romance needs to have: an intense relationship, two amazing characters, a feeling waiting on their respectful owners to let it grow and make things heat up even more, definitely romance and drama. Because without the right amount of drama, Christine and Tyler's story won't be the same.

I liked that the problem between the two main characters wasn't at all the fact that Christine was Tyler's sister best friend. And that was one of the things that made this story different from the other Wedding Dare story I've read.

I think that the Wedding Dare is one of those Contemporary Romance series that is a must read an Falling for the Groomsman is definitely an enjoyable, sexy and hot read that will make heat up your e-readers.
Don't miss Christine and Tyler's story and decide for yourself if Tyler deserves a second chance with sweet and fiery Red.

The only thing left to say is all those Wedding Dare fans out there won't be disappointed with the characters or the story and give a big thanks to Diane Alberts for writing such an amazing hot read, once again, and to Inkslinger PR for letting me participate in this amazing blog tour and giving me the chance to devour Diane's book.
