Get it at Amazonfrom our DIK review: Busy lawyer Wendy Liu is fully prepared to be maid-of-honor in her best friend Jane Denning’s wedding. After the disaster that plagued their friend Elise’s ceremony the previous year (covered in the previous book, One and Only - which is also where mild-mannered Jane met her daring groom, Cameron), Jane seemed to be looking for a nice, sedate, easily-organized ceremony, but Wendy soon finds herself swept up in Jane’s snowballing, elaborate plans – which Jane, who isn’t good in social situations, is having a hard time keeping in order. Struggling with the fact that the wedding means Wendy’s deep, long-standing friendship with Jane is going to have to expand to include Cameron, Wendy is not looking forward to spending the upcoming weekend with Jane’s brother, Noah, the object of a frustrated youthful crush and the guy who hurt her so long ago. Little does Wendy know that Noah’s been infatuated with her since they were teenagers as well, but refuses to pursue his desire for her because he thinks Wendy sees him only as a big brother figure. Noah is pleased about Jane’s upcoming marriage, but he’s having trouble processing that Wendy is a grown woman who might not need his protection any more. Wendy and Noah’s repressed mutual attraction comes out in the form of banter, which only underlines the sexual tension between them. In spite of the temptation, Wendy is reluctant to explore the possibilities that develop between them; she remembers all too well what it felt like when Noah didn’t show up to meet her at the senior prom, exacerbating her abandonment issues. Can Wendy learn to settle down? Can Noah learn how to be protective without smothering the women in his life? And when things explode between them in Las Vegas, will their developing feelings stay there?
