Don’t Kiss the Bride by Carian Cole is now live!

I guess you could say I was a damsel in distress, and he was my knight in shining armor.

But more accurately, I was a girl with a lot of bad luck, and he was a guy with a lot of muscles and tattoos.

Jude “Lucky” Lucketti wasn’t just a sexy, brooding construction worker. He was my own personal hero who seemed to be in all the right places at the right times. Like when my car broke down and I needed a ride home, and when I face planted on the sidewalk right in front of him and had to be taken to the emergency room.

Those weren’t exactly my best moments, but they were his.

We became friends, and it didn’t matter that he was sixteen years older than me. We had a lot in common—like our love of old rock music and vintage fast cars, and our aversion to relationships.

When he approached me with a crazy idea to help me out, I couldn’t say no.

The arrangement was supposed to be temporary. A marriage on paper and nothing else.

It should’ve been easy, but it wasn’t.

Because here I am, eighteen years-old, still in high school, and married to a man I was never supposed to fall in love with.

We had just one rule—no kissing the bride.

But we broke that rule, and it sealed our fate forever.

My Review...

Every time I open a book from Ms. Cole, I know I am going to be both impressed and infatuated by the characters and stories she creates. 

This story is no exception!

I am honestly going to say that I am not a huge fan of the age-gap trope, but I took the chance on one of my favorite authors and it paid off in spades!

This is the twisty story of Jude and Skylar. 

Skylar may be young in age, but she has an old soul and has experiences in her young life that has made her have to grow up quickly. Her heartbreaking early childhood, that Ms. Cole does a moving job in describing, has molded Skylar into the young adult that she is now. She has emotional and mental scars aplenty, but that doesn’t stop her from dreaming of a better life and a way to escape.

Enter Jude, a swoony hero in the extreme.  He is older, but sometimes not wiser fella that hones his hero complex when he sees Skylar. He fights his feeling for her and worries about the stigma attached to him and Skylar.

This story is going to move you. It’s going to make you feel all the feels! The unbelievable writing talent of Ms. Cole shines through in this story about love knowing no bounds and soul mates are truly special!
