    What a charming, warm, sexy gem of a novel. I couldn’t put The Wedding Date down. I love a good romance and this delivered from the first page to the last. Alexa Monroe is a great heroine—smart, funny, and full of the anxieties women know intimately. And when she meets the handsome doctor Drew Nichols in an elevator, it’s the beginning of an adventure in falling in like and then lust and then love. It was also nice to read a fun novel about...

    SO GOOD, definitely one of my new favorite romances!- Interracial relationship (black female and white male protagonists)- Fake to real relationship trope (one of my faves!)- Explicit practice of safe sex- Alexa works for the mayor of Berkeley and she is trying to obtain funding for an arts program for underprivileged youth. Author has a background in law, as does Alexa, and it shows.- Drew has to check. his. privilege. many times in the book and...

    3.5 stars. While it’s true that the best day to read this contemporary romance is on Valentine’s Day, as the cover loves to imply, I wasn’t sure about it back in February.Then I changed my mind. Sometimes you really do need to trust a book’s cover when it tells you that you’re about to read an adorable and romantic story that will entertain you and warm your heart.THE WEDDING DATE did that to me. How could it have not? My experience rea...

    4 stars!!!The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory is charming, sweet, and downright adorable! I had trouble believing this was a debut novel- it was so well written and a pleasure to read! Alexa and Drew meet in an unconventional way. They’re stuck together in an elevator. Being stuck together leads to them going to a wedding together. After that, this couple just can’t seem to get enough of each other. Drew is a pediatric surgeon from LA and Al...

    Contemporary-A-Thon challenge #6: read a diverse contemporary -COMPLETE!This was mega cute. A little corny at times, but honestly what new adult romance isn’t a little corny at times? Would definitely recommend for someone looking for a fast and fun read set in the Bay Area!

    I’m so glad I got stuck in that elevator with you.” she said.“Me, too.” The Wedding Date is an adorable romance about two people who aren't quite sure how to navigate a "relationship" that was never part of their plans. With a cuter than cute meet-cute, you'd expect things to go smoothly. But when you put together two people who aren't in their element, things are bound to get complicated.It's serendipitous when Drew Nichols and Alexa Mon...

    I LOVE this book!!!!!! I want to thank Roxane Gay, I never would have read this book if I hadn't read her review of this book. You should know that I will read anything Roxane Gay tells me to. The Wedding Date is a Hallmark movie in novel form and I mean that as a compliment. The Wedding Date a sugary sweet delight. This book had me smiling despite myself the whole time. I don't usually read Contemporary Romance, I'm more of a Mystery/ Thriller, ...

    Very adorable and sexy romance! I loved that this got right into things and began with the wedding and then let us watch how things unfolded after the fake date. For the most part, this was compulsively readable but I felt this maybe dragged on a little too long in the middle.The main character is African American (ownvoices) and there is fat rep. It does toe the line of having some body image issues go away due to the love interest, but with the...

    NOW AVAILABLE!This is not the type of book I generally seek out. I like romances, but I usually prefer either historical romances or paranormal ones - something not set in our world, present time. However, after reading Roxane Gay's review, I decided to request it from Netgalley.This is a contemporary romance and I've heard words used to describe it like "charming" and "cute" and I think that works. Alexa goes to see her visiting sister in her ho...

    [3.5]Not many books out there with interracial couples. Whilst this story was light, fuckin adorable and so much fun to read, I love that the author included aspects of race and white privilege in this book. It was done do well. I'd say pick this book up if you are in the mood for a cute and light-hearted read. And when aren't we in of those moods, amirite?!

    Alexa Monroe found herself trapped at a hotel elevator with a handsome, charming Drew Nichols. The incident led to a wedding date, a pretend relationship which quickly escalated into something more. The Wedding Date charmed me from beginning to end. The best part about this book was easily the heroine! She’s gorgeous and competent as hell but also strong and vulnerable. Alexa Monroe was everything I love in my romance book heroines. Another ele...

    After reading The Wedding Date, I created my "Favorite Reads of 2018" shelf on Goodreads and promptly added this book to the list so that should tell you how well things went.Over the years, Fake Dating & I have had a rocky relationship. Plots revolving around Fake Dating are an easy way to get me intrigued, but they tend to fall short in actuality. Was that the case with The Wedding Date? Definitely not."She glanced up at the ornate clock over t...

    This is normally not my kind of jam, but I will read anything that Roxane Gay tells me to read. This was so corny and formulaic that, if it weren't written by a black woman, it would have already been adapted into a Kathryn Heigl movie by now. And yet, it was a surprisingly sexy, fun palate cleanser.

    3.5/5 stars!! This was so cheesy y’all but adorable af too so it was exactly what I needed at this point ❤ I loved the fact that both the main characters POV was included but I do feel that the writing style could be improved and there’s also a lot of repetition, as i feel the characters just keep on going around in circles and falling into the same routine. I would have liked more plot twists/conflict as the issues that did arise in the st...

    When Alexa and Drew end up stuck in an elevator together, they quickly hit it off, and Drew ends up asking Alexa to be his fake girlfriend at his exes wedding. She agrees, and sparks fly. Despite living in different cities, Alexa and Drew continue to see each other. Even though Drew made it clear that he "doesn't do relationships", this feels different. He can't stop thinking about Alexa, and likewise, she can't stop thinking about him either. A...

    4.5* Simply put, The Wedding Date was an absolute delight. I adore the characters. They were quick, funny and imperfect and I warmed to them instantly. I absolutely loved the relationship between the two protagonists and their back and forth banter and thought the two perspectives flowed flawlessly. There was just enough drama to keep me intrigued but not so much that I was constantly rolling my eyes, I was hooked the first page and I could have ...

    Because I am an honest reviewer I'm going to say up front that this is a 3.5 star review leaning toward 4 because while utterly scrumptious in many ways it does have a few problems that make the good stuff, and there is a lot of good stuff, a little less yummy.I believe this is Jasmine Guillory's first novel and my hat is very much off to her for a really very brilliant debut. She's created two immensely likable, totally enjoyable to read, and ve...

    This was a cute, steamy, fun, and quick romantic read. Honestly, it was the perfect Valentine's Day read but it would be a fun read any time of the year. In the need of a book that reminds you of that perfect romantic comedy movie? This is the one to pick up. It really reads as if it was a romantic comedy that you'd be seeing on the big screen. I'd vote for this movie adaptation for sure! Both of the main characters are likeable and there is an o...

    I absolutely loved this synopsis and was quite eager to get to this story. I love love loved Alexa and Drew. She’s smart and driven. He’s charming and charming. Together they’re all sort of flirting and banter and sweetness. I loved their weekends together. And can we please get a book about Carlos? He was fantastic. Plot wise, it was what I expected: a lot of them speculating about what the other is feeling or thinking, but not actually as...

    This might be the first romance book that I've ever truly read sans any irony... And I LOVED it. The two main characters, Alexa and Drew, are amazing. I adored them. I really appreciated that both of them had full, rich lives and great friendships outside of their romantic relationship. The fact that they had such full lives made me root for them even more. They weren't without flaws, but you can't help but love them because they feel so real. Al...
