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.

____________________________
Sinclair Callahan is a trust fund baby.

Born into one of the richest, most notorious families in the country, the black sheep title was stamped on him from an early age. While the rest of his relatives earn their keep at the top tier baseball team they’ve owned for generations, Sin prefers spending his time and money on booze, babes and bad decisions.

Until all three land him in a coma, fighting for his life.

One year later, with a sober chip in his hand, he arrives at spring training ready to turn it all around. But when he meets the only woman who doesn’t recognize just who he is, he can’t help omitting a few important details … like his last name. No stranger to charming women, Sin uses one of his old skillsets to kick off what is sure to be an epic hookup.

But when she shows up five months after their brief Florida fling with a secret that will topple his privileged world, he might just lose everything he’s worked so hard to rebuild. Including a real shot at love with the sassy redhead that he’s been too much of a coward to pursue.

Can he shoulder the responsibility he’s always shrugged off? Or will he balk at the real-life complications and strike out completely?

Francesca Kade is an independent goal-getter.

As one of the only female strength coaches in the league, she’s used to invading the boys’ club. After putting up with being passed over and not promoted for a number of seasons, she’s finally got her shot.

A consummate professional with blinders on, there is no way anything will screw up all she hopes to achieve. Well, except for maybe the new employee with eyes the color of ocean waves and a smirk that’s the definition of sin. When they catch fire in the southern heat, it’s almost impossible to put it out.

Until she finds out that he’s her boss’s boss’s boss.

Burned from the betrayal and panicking with a fresh secret of her own, Frankie is shocked when she lands her ultimate dream job. There is no way she’s turning it down. But when she bumps into Sinclair on day one, all of the old feelings and new problems come hurtling at her like a baseball to the face.

Will she ever be able to trust that he’ll put both her and his responsibilities before his vices? Or will their differences cost them the game?

My Review…

I am so in love with the Callahan series and I have been so looking forward to Sinclair’s story. Who doesn’t love a reformed bad-boy? I know I do and Sinclair is the epitome of a changed man in his story.

This is Sinclair and Frankie’s story.

I absolutely love Frankie, she is a take charge woman in a man dominated world of baseball. She is girl power personified. I could relate to her in so many ways and that too is what make me fall for her. 

They way that Sin and Frankie meet is fun and exciting, but I knew things were gonna get bumpy when summer training was over and boy did it ever! You are going to be thrown a curveball, just like Frankie!

I loved the flow of this story and the way that Ms. Aarons was able to address the issues of addiction and how everyone deserves a second chance.  

There are swoons aplenty and when Sinclair faces his fears and goes for what he wants, well Frankie makes him work for it and rightly so!

I hope there are more stories coming from this family in the future! 

 

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!
