Tyrell ‘Ty’ Brown lost his wife seven years ago and although he has finally been vindicated in court, winning damages from the man who killed her, the fact that her murderer will get out of jail in a matter of days infuriates him. The late nights spent on the case with his lawyer, Angela, has left her eager to explore more with him, but he isn’t ready for that, especially with someone who has seen so deeply inside him. Fortunately, when she tries to come onto him after the trial, he has a good excuse – he has a plane to catch and his best friend, Isabelle’s, wedding to attend in Paris, France.

Attorney Victoria Westin cannot believe her bad luck when she finds herself seated in the plane next to Tyrell Brown on her way to her brother, Matt’s, wedding in Amboise, France, a city outside of Paris. She was the opposing lawyer in the trial earlier that day. She notices that in his jeans and cowboy boots Ty looks much bigger than he had in a suit in the courtroom and even more attractive. After a few drinks, they are civil to each other and almost become members of the mile high club. But things quickly change when Ty sobers up.

Irate after discovering Victoria in the seat next to him, Ty finds it hard enough enduring the flight with her. What he never expects is to find that the wedding in Paris has been relocated to Amboise so they are both attending the same wedding and will be staying in a castle that the bridal couple has rented for the event. Not knowing that Ty and Victoria know each other, Isabelle asks Ty to be nice to Victoria. So to keep the bridal couple happy, they act as if they do not know each other. However, to keep the peace at the wedding, Victoria’s mother insists that Victoria give her cheating ex-fiancé another chance. What she doesn’t expect is for her ex to show up at the wedding.

Amid private quarrels and public acts of friendship, Ty and Victoria struggle with the attraction between them. Ty begins to see another side of Victoria and wonders if he misjudged her. But would exploring a relationship with the sexy blonde be a betrayal of his deceased wife? Can Ty get beyond his grief and start anew?

A captivating tale, THE WEDDING FAVOR, the first book in award winning author Cara Connelly’s SAVE THE DATE series, is a sexy contemporary romance that will quickly draw readers in. The chemistry between Ty and Victoria is off-the-charts and the contention between them and the intriguing plot will keep readers turning the pages to discover the outcome. Not to mention that the characters are so realistic, they seem to step right off the page, allowing readers to quickly become invested in the story.

Filled with sexual tension, witty repartee, a location wedding, misunderstandings, mishaps, grief, healing, romance and true love, this story is one that I enjoyed immensely. I look forward to the next installment of this wonderful series, which began with the novella, THE WEDDING DATE. The next book, scheduled to be released in the fall of 2014, is THE WEDDING VOW. In the meantime, be sure to check out THE WEDDING FAVOR, a delightfully enthralling novel by a truly gifted author. I highly recommend it!
