The Wedding Date (The Wedding Date #1)

  A groomsman and his last-minute guest are about to discover if a fake date can go the distance in a fun and flirty debut novel.

Agreeing to go to a wedding with a guy she gets stuck with in an elevator is something Alexa Monroe wouldn't normally do. But there's something about Drew Nichols that's too hard to resist.

On the eve of his ex's wedding festivities, Drew is minus a plus one. Until a power outage strands him with the perfect candidate for a fake girlfriend...

After Alexa and Drew have more fun than they ever thought possible, Drew has to fly back to Los Angeles and his job as a pediatric surgeon, and Alexa heads home to Berkeley, where she's the mayor's chief of staff. Too bad they can't stop thinking about the other...

They're just two high-powered professionals on a collision course toward the long distance dating disaster of the century--or closing the gap between what they think they need and what they truly want...

This book is initially not found in my to-read list and to be perfectly honest I am all about the synopsis which makes all sense plus witty. I knew I was in for a treat and got me hooked at a first glance because the lovely book cover screams - you gotta read it! The Wedding Date started off likable, easy and outgoing. It has the potential. Unfortunately, I was about at the middle of reading the book where Alexa and Drew were just drawn to each other physically and that was all there is to it. Their relationship failed to show me maturity in their own views or opinions. I was disappointed how it went repetitive especially with their weekends spent eating out and making out and the characters doesn't match their said profession in it. The plain jealousy was childish for me as well. I have no words.

Overall, this book really has the potential if only the main characters were sincere enough to know more about each other plus with no guessing who was going to be the one to admit first. Clearly, I could have read a better romance book than this!
