“Sometimes, you have to hold on to the things that tried to tear you down, because it’s good to be reminded why you’re going to succeed.”
Damn, I knew Beck’s story was going to be a good one and Meghan Quinn did not disappoint. Two Wedding Crashers is book two in the Dating by Numbers series, the first being, Three Blind Dates. Beck does appear in the first and while it is not a necessity to read this book first I can highly recommend it as it gives you a great insight into Beck and another character coming up in book three. Yes, this book was all Meghan Quinn, it was fun, I had many, many laughs but this book was also very, very deep. This book tackled a few hard subjects which made her characters honest, real and understandable. Second chances are called second chances for a reason. Everyone deserves one, it just up to them to take it, treasure it and not screw it up.
“Rylee is the first woman I’ve spoken to about my background. She’s the first woman to lift me up, to make me want to strive to be more, to be better than I already am. She’s a once-in-a-lifetime person, Zoey. Believe me, I’ve been through the gauntlet. She makes me happy and she gives me hope for a bright future. I want to hold on to that for as long as I live.”
I had tears of laughter reading this book, but I also had tears of emotion. Meghan Quinn packs an emotional punch as some tough subjects are brought to the fore and pulled at every single emotional bone in my body. Both our hero and heroine have baggage…a lot of baggage. Neither want to put themselves out there, both for different reasons, but from the moment that these two met there was a spark, a spark that our heroine tried to blow out at every opportunity, but this spark had a hero behind it that had stamina (in more ways than one), one that was determined to morph this little spark to a fully-fledged inferno.
Our heroine, Rylee, is a famous author and is suffering from the worst case of writer’s block she has ever had. Rylee has lost her mojo, in more ways than one and despair is the only constant that keeps her busy. Her author best friends stage an intervention…a trip to Key West to crash a wedding. Feeling that this could be the rejuvenation she desperately needs, Rylee reluctantly agrees and gets way more than she bargained for.
“What you had wasn’t magical vacation mode, it was deeper than that.”
Beck has always been intriguing, our leather wearing, motorcycle riding, clammed up tight, broody yet enigmatic blind date wannabe. After reading Three Blind Dates I couldn’t wait for his story. I desperately wanted to know the man behind the façade. I wanted to know what had ruined him for all other women and Meghan Quinn didn’t disappoint.
“You are a product of second chances in life, and you’re taking that second chance and turning it into something beautiful.”
The antics, the hilarity, the dialogue was simply perfect, something that Meghan Quinn never fails to deliver in any of her books. However, in this book, she brings emotion and she packs one heck of an emotional punch. The character connection was on point, these two damaged people come to life before your eyes, breathing life into one and other, yet one still caught up on what they can’t do, rather than what they can…which ultimately means the most. No unnecessary drama, fairly low on angst, but when the angst does come it is needed and only adds to this story.
“Beck wanted something different. And that something different won’t ever include me.”
I adored Beck and Rylee. These two were both fantastic characters that deserved their happy ever after and with some fantastic secondary characters this book has something for everyone. Another well written winner from Meghan Quinn.
I was a serious Beck fan in Three Blind Dates and when things didn't work out between him and Noelly I was bummed. However, I didn't let it bother me too long. I knew we were getting his story and from the brief mentions of his past I knew it was bound to be an angsty one, well it ended up not being that much of an angsty romance but his story was still very heartbreaking and just made me love him all the more and admire him a lot for the man he became. He was like a phoenix rising from its ashes, it was beautiful to learn what he went through and then what he did to become a better man and make up for his mistakes. I just freaking loved this man so much. He was truly amazing.
Beck is the kind of man that is perfect on the surface and when you start peeling off his layers and learning his secrets you learn that he really is damn perfect. He might have made really bad decisions in the past but he learned from his mistakes and was able to turn himself and his life around and become a man worth of inspiration. I love learning all his sides and getting to watch all his layers being peeled.
Rylee really lucked out on that mini vacation/ writing retreat. She never would have thought that a week away to crash a wedding and try to get her writing groove back would lead her to the love of her life, the kind of love she writes about but never thought would find for herself. Beck turned out to be a better hero then the one she writes in her books.
If up until know it wasn't obvious to you, I'll be perfectly clear: I loved this book! It was everything. It was so god darn fun, a lot of disastrous and hilarious accidents, a very interesting meet-cute and lots of funny and weird best friends. This was definitely a bunch that will entertain you beginning till end, but they are also a bunch that is tight knitted and look out for each other's happiness. I seriously loved every character in this book. When things seemed to go south for the two love birds, everyone helped out in getting them back together and it was seriously so perfect.
The books is divided into parts, about half the book is set on the vacation where the wedding crashing takes place, which is where our hero and heroine meet. They have a lot of fun together, being tourists exploring the island, getting to know each other and just talking. I loved that their relationship wasn't instantly sex, and that even though their attraction was bluntly obvious and their chemistry off the charts, they developed a sort of friendship before. I feel like that was important.
After the vacation is up, each go their own way but neither of them can forget the other and Beck is relentless on his mission to get Rylee to text him back. Rylee wanted to pretend that their 'relationship' was just a vacation fling, and didn't want to pursue anything more because they lived so far apart and she believed there was no way they could be together. Boy was she wrong because love moves mountains.
Beck finally gets Rylee to break and text him back when he sends her a selfie with a baby red panda and I don't blame her one bit.
After that they start texting each other 24/7, then calling and face timing and basically on a full on long distance relationship. At this point what they feel towards each other is way way bigger than a vacation fling so they decide to meet up and see if the connection they had while on the island was still there, that it hadn't been a fluke. So they each hop on a plane to Vegas and go do some more wedding crashing and it's there that Beck shares his past and boy the tears, that man.
Even though Beck shares his story with Rylee she holds off on sharing hers and then Beck says something that sets her off and running. He doesn't understand how one second she wanted to be with him and the next she was running away from him. And this is the part where their friends come in and save the day and it's also the part where if you weren't already in love with our Beck, then you'll definitely fall for him now. I swear that man is GOLD. Rylee really hit a gold mine on that vacation. She is one lucky lady. I want a Beck for myself.
Seriously, pick up this book. It was funny, it was heartfelt, it was beautiful. Both our heroes had their own heartbreaking stories, which made it all the more special for them to find each other and for Beck to fight for his Saucy. I loved it when he called her that. Ugh. I so swooned.
