This story made me think of the brilliant 2005 film 'The Wedding Date' with Debra Messing and the lovely Dermot Mulroney! How was this film 8 years ago?! - I must re watch this!
This book has to be one of my fav books of 2018 so far, so good I was up till the early hours as I just couldn't put it down.
We meet Sam... good news is that her best friend is getting married, bad news is the best man is her ex boyfriend Liam.. The bad bad news is her ex boyfriend Liam has a new girlfriend and to make matters worse the bad bad bad news is the new girlfriend is pregnant!! Arghhhh!!!
So Sam is the maid of honour to her best friend, Jess. Unfortunately the groom's brother is Sam's ex boyfriend Liam. The wedding is the last place Sam wants to run into Liam but Sam being Sam the most caring and wonderful friend she puts her feelings to one side and plans to attend.
To save loosing face in front of family and friends at the wedding she decides to tell everyone that she has moved on and has a new boyfriend, problem is said boyfriend does not exist. After visiting her hairdresser Tim, she is presented with an idea of an escort or hiring an actor and here she comes away with a business idea that is Jake.. Sam and Jake meet and after hitting it off decide to confirm a contract with rules (rules are for breaking right?!) and off they leave for the wedding in the Scottish Highlands as 'pretend' boyfriend and girlfriend not long after Jake has played the perfect partner at dinner with the 'in laws'. (awww he's a keeper!)
Thank you Zara for Jake, I am sure I am not alone when I say he is the perfect date, such a charmer and I loved him from the first chapter he appeared in. My list of chick lit hotties is rather long (what's a girl to do?!) but I have to say Jake is right up at the top!
I really liked Sam, she was very relatable, and I really wanted nothing but good things for her. I did feel sorry for her in the beginning especially finding out that her ex boyfriend Liam (we hate him by the way) must have done the dirty deed on her but as I read further into the book I envied her for having such a hot date at the wedding of the year! (jammy dodger!!) On a serious note this book was also a self discovery for Sam on what she wanted out of life 'AL' (After Liam!) and I must admit Liam most probably did her a massive favour!
I loved the lead up to the wedding, lots of funny scenes many including Harry, Jake's dog... The most cutest, curious dog ever! I enjoyed reading the chemistry between Sam and Jake, Will Sam fall for Jake and just how good of an actor is Jake?! Arghhh questions.. questions...!
Well done Zara on such a blooming brilliant read, thank you for creating a story that kept me from sleeping, I love when a book does that!
If you enjoy a heartwarming romance with lots of laughs along the way. You need to pick this book up!
I read this in one day because I couldn’t put it down, and wasn’t at all disappointed! The storyline is fun, funny and beautifully written.
I don’t generally enjoy books written in the first person, but i loved every page of this and cant wait to read more by this author! The characters are well thought out, and the storyline is written in a realistic way.
That is to say, the characters aren’t faultless, and that keeps you smiling throughout. The sense of humour from the writer is great, and I love that this isn’t your run of the mill romance.
Definitely recommend this, beautiful story!

I would give this book ten stars if I could. I do hope Zara follows up with a book about Sam and Jake's wedding. It would be a hoot!
The story centre's around Sam a twenty something who has just been asked to be maid of honour for her best friend. The main issue? Her cheating ex 'Liam' is the groom's brother.
After not wanting to let her best friend down, Sam decides to pretend that she is fine with the situation, feigns nonchalance and claims she has a boyfriend. The one catch? ... She doesn't!
The book has some real funny moments that you can imagine happening to yourself. You sympathise strongly with the way Samantha feels about herself and the situation she has been left in. So when she decides to pay someone to be her date, you know it's either going to be a success or go horrible horribly wrong.
The book is sweet, the characters have real chemistry and is believable as a story. It was an easy read and I found myself rooting to know more about 'Jake' the actor. If you love books like Helen Fielding's 'Bridget Jones', you will love Zara Stoneley's writing.
