Book Description (from Entangled)

She’s the one that got away. He’s the one she can’t forget.

Photojournalist Christine Forsythe is ready to tackle her naughty little to-do list, and who better to tap for the job than a hot groomsman? But when she crashes into her best friend’s older brother, Christine realizes her list needs updating. And fast. Tyler Dresco took her virginity during the best night of her life, then bolted. Now that they’re trapped together at a destination wedding, she’s going to get her revenge.

Tyler has never forgiven himself for how completely he lost control all those years ago. Being in Christine’s arms had felt right…until he realized what he’d taken from her in the hallway of a cheap motel. And oh, how she’s making him pay for it now. The insatiable heat between them has only grown stronger, but every time things heat up, Christine walks away.

With every encounter, things go a little bit further until Christine’s caught in her own trap of seduction. And before their time’s up, Tyler’s not the only one wanting more…

MY THOUGHTS:

Falling for the Groomsman by Diane Alberts is Book 1 of the Wedding Dare series.  Kady and Colton are getting married and to celebrate, they and their wedding party are spending a week at a resort.  Family and best friends round out the wedding party and when sparks fly, they fly hot.  Tyler, Kady’s brother, is one of Colton’s groomsmen.  When the bachelorette party gets crashed by Colton and his entourage, betting starts and feelings start heating up.  Christine is one of Kady’s oldest friends but she is keeping a serious secret.  Tyler was her first and when he ran away right after, he hurt her badly.  Now, older and wiser, Christine is determined to stay far away from the tempting groomsman.  But Tyler has other ideas.  As the days at the resort get crazier, and Kady starts matchmaking, Christine and Tyler find themselves in increasingly close quarters.

This was probably not the best book to use as Book 1 in the series since the premise so closely matches the opening novella’s.  As with Kady and Colton’s book, this one benefits from the fact that Tyler and Christine have a history and like Kady and Colton, that history also serves as the issue between them.  While it is an enjoyable book in its own right, reading them back to back meant this one lacked a bit of punch.
