The one guy she shouldn't want...
Honor Mitchell has lived with guilt and regret for a long time, so when she promises to do the things on her dying best friend's wish list, she's determined to follow through and do something right for a change. But when she's thrown together for wedding duties with the one man who complicates her vow - just by looking at him - she has to put her faith in Bryce Bishop's pledge to help her, no strings attached.
Bryce's near one-night stand with his ex-girlfriend's best friend a few months ago might have been a mistake, but helping the beautiful, free-spirited Honor with her promise isn't. His trust in women is shot, but he can't help but play his best man card to his advantage and help Honor tick off the items on his ex's list, even if it puts him in a no-win situation. Because his assistance might get Honor what she wants, but suddenly being the do-good guy puts his plans - and heart - in serious jeopardy.

This book was so romantic! Bryce was the fictional boyfriend that readers would want to have for their own!

I love the way Honor was portrayed in this story. She lit up every room and made every person she encountered feel at ease. She was great at being an antique dealer, and she was selfless. Her one flaw? She didn't believe in herself. 

Enter Bryce. Bryce literally was the guy I would personally want. He wanted a serious relationship and he wasn't the kind to sleep around. Talk about perfect! He was patient and understanding, and such a gentleman!

"What movie are we watching?"
He opened the styrofoam lid on his take-out. She tucked one leg under her bottom and got busy with her own food.
"Breakfast at Tiffany's. It's one of my favorites."
He made a face, no doubt wishing he'd scored an action film instead, but lifted the remote and pressed play. She stifled a giggle. And swallowed a shiver when he gave her a sidelong glance that tracked from her face down to her legs before he took a bite of his dinner."

Another character I loved was Honor's brother, Cooper. He was protective of his sister and I really appreciated that. There was even a time when I was a bit jealous of their sibling relationship.

Finally, there was Danny. I can't wait to read his book! He seemed like a great guy and he deserved true love. 

Okay, she texted. Her phone chirped two seconds later.
Okay what? Just want to be clear since several days have passed since my offer.
Okay to one night. And thanks for sending me Danny.
Happy to help. With both. Danny's not for the taking btw.
A flash of heat whipped through her at his possessive and flirtatious answer. She waited a beat before texting.
That's not what he said.
She giggled at his use of all caps.
Something about keeping my keys and--
I'm going to kill him.
Now? I'd like to make good use of those hands of his first.
The only hands allowed to touch you are mine.

I mean, if the snippets above aren't enough to get you to read this book, then I don't know what would convince you. I'd tell you though, if you don't read this book, you'd miss out on something great.
