When Australian, Olivia, travels to England to be the Maid of Honour for her best friend, little did she know how many difficulties and humiliations she would need to overcome. Why is the groom's family so hostile towards her? Are all the family members the same or does Edward (the groom's brother) make an exception?

I love reading Modern Tempted books! Contrary to what I always thought, these books encompass so much more than just the typical boy meets girl scenarios. There is always a deeper underlining issue embedded in a wonderfully romantic setting.

In Confessions of a Bad Bridesmaid, Olivia and Edward both battle with inner demons that they have to overcome before they can think about new relationships. I love the fact, that this book highlighted and showed the not so perfect character traits of its individual cast. Olivia often feels like a spare part (thanks to her own family) and hides her insecurities through heavy make-up and child-like behaviour. Edward is a lot more sophisticated, but is troubled by guilt about something that happened a long time ago.

The storyline switches beautifully between Olivia's and Edward's point of view. The sexual tension between these two characters was apparent from the first page onwards, but the reader does not find out until much later on, whether they decide to act on their attraction.

If you are looking for a quick read with plenty of passion and romance, but also some deeper troublesome issues, than Confessions of a Bad Bridesmaid is the book for you!

This is Jennifer's debut for Modern Tempted and I am looking forward to reading more of her books.

This story features the colourful party girl Olivia. She has the dress sense of a peacock in high heels. She meets her exact opposite in Edward, who is straight-laced and very conservative. Poor Edward finds Olivia completely exasperating and is also inexplicably drawn to her from the get go.
I felt bad for Olivia, who has self-esteem issues. What is wrong with me? Seemed to be an automatic mantra or inner earworm to any type of attention she was given by the opposite gender. Many young women in our era seem to suffer from the same kind of insecurities. Olivia is bold and independent and yet thinks she is unworthy of positive attention or love. Such a sad contradiction.
On a more personal note I think Bunny could have done with slap up the side of her snarky face with a wet kipper. Super condescending and insulting to those she believes to be below her on the rungs of society.
The author has a good sense of humour and I found myself chuckling quite a few times, especially during the first few chapters. She has also managed to capture the unpredictability of the power of lust when it comes to making decisions based on mind over heart. Sometimes it doesn't matter what your head says when your body and heart are dancing to a different tune altogether.

HASH(0x913695d0) out of 5 stars Confessions of a Bad Bridesmaid 7 Jan. 2014
By Kimberly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Olivia Matthews is ready to let loose! Armed with tight dresses and a perfect tan, the Aussie bridesmaid is ready to take England by storm. Or at least ready to have a good time at her best friend’s wedding. But from the first, nothing goes as planned. The only appealing part of the weekend is the groom’s brother, the sexy Mr. Darcy-ish Edward Winchester. Now if only Olivia could convince Edward to give into their mutual desire and enjoy a fling that could turn into so much more…

Society weddings and familial tension are a combustible pairing before you throw in an outsider, so it’s no surprise that Confessions of a Bad Bridesmaid has drama to spare. Romancing blooming in the midst of a chaotic wedding weekend is nothing new, but author Jennifer Rae makes it feel fresh, thanks mostly to her leading lady. Olivia just about broke my heart. She’s always been seen as second (or third, or fourth, or fifth) best when compared to her near-perfect sister and her friends. As a result, Olivia is insecure about her looks and is determined to try and be the kind of woman men find attractive. Needless to say, it’s Olivia’s true self Edward falls for and what I liked best about Confessions of a Bad Bridesmaid was watching him peel back the party girl persona Olivia wears like armor to find the woman underneath.

While Olivia herself made Confessions of a Bad Bridesmaid impossible to put down, the story as a whole was a bit of a letdown. I grew frustrated with the push-pull between Edward and Olivia and their romance never quite drew me in. The secondary characters (Edward’s sister, Bunny, in particular) grated on my nerves more often than not. Still, Confessions of a Bad Bridesmaid wasn’t a bad read, just not a story I think I’ll re-read. However, I liked Olivia so much that even though Confessions of a Bad Bridesmaid wasn’t for me, I’ll be giving another one of Ms. Rae’s books a try.

By Harlequin Junkie Blog - Published on Amazon.com

Olivia knew it was going to be a challenging weekend. It started off all wrong – a miscommunication between her best friend and her groom’s brother meant she was missing an escort from the airport. After the tube, a bus, and a slog down a muddy road in totally inappropriate boots, she’s flagged down by the most insufferable man ever. He just happens to be the man who was supposed to meet her at Heathrow, and neither of them are pleased to be meeting this way.

Edward doesn’t have time for silliness. He wasn’t meeting with the Prime Minister as he told Fiona’s flighty friend, but someone fairly high up in the ranks. And Olivia had the audacity to imply that the PM is “just a man”! Wow. This girl is something else. She’s silly, and stupid, and completely inappropriate. She’s also made them both late for the ‘festivities’ taking place at his parent’s house, which he’s already dreading. And she has the temerity to be changing into a ridiculously shiny and short-skirted outfit in his backseat.

Olivia is used to being looked down upon, but maybe this weekend can be different. These people don’t know her, so she can show up looking like a million bucks and not be in her sister’s shadow. And she loves Fiona unconditionally, so she’s thrilled to be here to share in her special day. When Edward escorts her into his family castle, she gets a horrible sinking feeling that she’s way out of her league. She’s immediately set upon by the sophisticated family of the groom, and she’s had to help Fiona deal with some issues of her own. Nothing ever changes.

Well, nothing except for the brooding man who seemingly can’t stop staring at her. Protecting her. Keeping her from getting in over her head. He sees her through the makeup and the outlandish outfits down to her soul. And she sees him as the man who is wracked with guilt over something that happened when he was just a boy. Olivia and Edward finally admit that they need a weekend after a tense game of poker, but can they leave it at that?

This story was entertaining, but I did have some issues. There were threads left hanging, like Fiona and her issues with Will’s family, and the belittling of Olivia. I really wished those things were resolved, because I love the whole ‘white knight’ thing. Neither Will nor Edward really pushed to get things ironed out on that front. Some of the descriptions (locations, people, etc.) were kinda “skimmy” while others (the maze/statues) were lovely – I would’ve liked them more consistent. But again, I enjoyed the story overall, and it’s a lovely, short read.

HASH(0x91369e28) out of 5 stars What Fun! 29 Jan. 2014
By Janet - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Instant attraction and a quirky heroine are only two of the elements in this wonderful novel from Jennifer Rae. She has a talent for creating characters that, while flawed, are compelling and it's worth getting emotionally invested in their journey to happily ever after. Ms. Rae writes with humor, but it's fun not slapstick. The dialogue is clever and witty, but appropriate to the characters and situations. I thoroughly enjoyed my reading experience and recommend this author.

I don't normally post reviews but felt compelled after reading this. I like this type of novel and I realize many times that the story or the characters are over the top and unrealistic, but this book was awful. It was a struggle to get through. I couldn't stand the main character Olivia. I read this as part of a monthly book set, the rest were good. This book not so much.
