*BLOG TOUR* You May Kiss The Bridesmaid by Camilla Isley

Today it is my pleasure to bring you my review of You May Kiss The Bridesmaid by Camilla Isley.

Archibald Hill is handsome, single, and he’s going to his best friend’s wedding ready to make a conquest or two. After all, everyone knows weddings are the perfect setting to get lucky.

Summer Knowles used to have a life—friends, family, a sister who’d do anything for her—until she blew it all away with a terrible mistake. Now, attending her twin’s wedding as the party’s undesirable number one seems like more than she can handle. So, when a tall stranger with smoldering ice-blue eyes offers her a therapy of seven nights of no-strings-attached fun, she might even ignore that he has a beard and accept.

Problem is, Summer has never been good at keeping sex and feelings separated…

So I was lucky enough to read From Thailand with Love earlier this year, and was excited when I discovered that You May Kiss The Bridesmaid was due to be released as the next in the series. As you know, I love a series where we get to revisit characters, but I also love learning more about characters we have only briefly met. In You May Kiss The Bridesmaid we get to finally meet Summer Knowles, twin sister of Winter. We already know that Winter and Summers relationship has been fragile, so she is the perfect character for us to learn more about. We met Archibald Hill back in Thailand – he’s loveable and clearly a great friend to Logan but he has a reputation for being a womaniser.

Summer Winter is dreading her sisters wedding. After she made the monumental mistake of having an affair with her best friends boyfriend, she tore apart her friendship group and her twin sister stopped talking to her. Now both Winter and Lana, her best friend, have forgiven her but it doesn’t mean the rest of her friends are quite so forgiving. She hasn’t seen any of them since the affair, and she doesn’t want to see them now. She has lived with the shame of what she did, and she has now sworn off men. She’ll do whatever it takes to get through Winter’s wedding.

Archie is looking forward to his best man duties at Logan’s wedding. He loves Winter, and thinks they are a great match. Plus he knows there are always single ladies at a wedding! What he doesn’t expect is to meet Summer – she might look like Winter but they couldn’t be more different. It’s a good job they are both only looking for some fun until the wedding is over…

I really enjoyed From Thailand With Love, and I am more than happy to say the same about You May Kiss The Bridesmaid. It is a light, easy read full of romance with a little bit of drama thrown in for good measure. Whilst Summer might have previously cheated, it is clear she is both embarrassed and mortified by her previous behaviour, so it was good to watch a character behave in such a grown-up way, putting her sisters feeling before her own by attending the wedding. Archie is already a character that I loved, so it was great to spend some time following him specifically.

All in all this a great book, and I am more that happy to recommend it to you. If you’re lucky enough to be getting away this year then it’ll be a fab beach read, but if like me its all about the staycation for you, then this will be a great book to read with a glass of wine whilst sunning yourself in your garden!

Rating: 4 out of 5.
