Romance Friday: It happened one wedding - Julie James

After a humiliating end to her engagement, investment banker Sidney Sinclair is done with commitment-phobic men. But when her sister winds up engaged after a whirlwind courtship, she’s thrown in to close contact with exactly the kind of sexy playboy she wants to avoid—the gorgeous best man. She’s stuck with him, for better or worse, until her sister walks down the aisle, but that doesn’t mean she has to give in to his smooth advances, no matter how tempting they are…

Special Agent Vaughn Roberts always gets his man on the job and his woman in bed. So Sidney’s refusal to fall for his charms only makes him more determined to win over the cool and confident redhead. Only what starts out as a battle of wills ends up as a serious play for her heart. Because the one woman who refuses to be caught may be the only one Vaughn can’t live without…

My thoughts:
Step 1
Find a good man

Avoid brother in law's brother, he is not a good man.

Yup Sydney wants a man who can settle down, she has quite the list to prove it. How a man should be, so she does not get stuck with someone who is out of the door in a week. But hey I can understand that, she does not want to date around. She wants to be in a relationship. A screening process is good.

Then there is Vaughn, he does want to play around, and she annoys him so much. But he also wants her. And hey we all know how this will turn out. They will get it on, fall in love and live happily ever after. They just have to get their heads straight. Sydney has to see that there is more to him, and he has to see that maybe change could be good.

Enjoyable. Cute, passionate. Nice. It even had me laughing.

PS. yes it works as a standalone, I have only read book 2 before
