Wedding Date for Hire

The second book in Anyone But You series features Maddie McCarthy, a laughing stock of her family surviving the curse of never being lucky in love. It’s during her moments of frustrations that she announces to her family that she has a boyfriend when she comes across an advert of Match Made Easy. But her hopes of getting boyfriends are soon sent in a spiral as she finds out that her Match Made Date is with Trent Montgomery.

Back in her high school years, Trent was a self-centered jock, he was arrogant and one of Maddie’s tormentors. He is now a transformed man and agreeing to do his cousin who owns the show a favor, Trent agrees in the last minutes to be Maddie’s date. Trent’s cousin dearly needs Maddie’s business and all the possible connections she could offer. But with no time to select another date option, Maddie has to go along with her high school tormentor for a date.

Maddie truly loves her younger sister Louise such that she will do anything to make her the main focus and make her wedding day special. Maddie suffers from abandonment issues because her father left the family and she thinks she is cursed when it comes to love because her relationships only last for a few days. But Trent is a good man, and he isn’t the man he was back in high school. His only family is his dog and his cousin. He’s been hurt by love before, and so he isn’t the type of man to believe in happily ever after’s.

Wedding Date for Hire is a sweet romantic story perfect for both teenager and adults who have a belief that love conquers all and believe in happily ever after. Maddie and Trent are the people you’d love to connect to, and all the supporting characters in the story are likable.

The main characters as said above are people you’d love to get to know, “hang out” with them and wish they were your friends or had such friends in real life. Trent is a gem, a good-hearted man who loves his cousin and though he comes from a wealthy family, he lacked parental love. His parents only saw him as an accessory until the day he succeeds in Football. But when his football career was put to an end by several life-threatening hits, he became disposable. Trent, however, did recover his determination and strength by putting his focus on the health field. Our heroine is a little lost, she just has broken up with her boyfriend, and she’s at an age where everyone is pointing fingers at her to get to a serious relationship.

Wedding Date for Hire is a steadily paced story with plenty of buckets of charm. There are sweet affection, quick banter and learning lessons for everyone concerned. It’s a story of friendship, trust, love and second changer and while it’s a part of a series, it can be read as a standalone.
