Shotgun Wedding by Ainslie Paton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Big Bang Theory meets Modern Family with a twist.
From the quirky mind of Ainslie Paton comes yet another tale that will have you alternately laughing and sniffling into your Kleenex. A brilliantly executed tale of wedding fever that explores the HEAs of the Sidelined series couples.
Readers, if you aren’t hooked on this author yet, I urge you to take the leap into her books. While her writing style might not suit everyone’s tastes, if you’re a fan her humour, plot twists and out-of-the-ordinary characters leap off the page and into your heart.
In Shotgun Wedding, Ms Paton puts the couples through the pre-wedding wringer for all kinds of different reasons. And their reasons for getting married — or not — will keep you entertained until that final, unexpected yet absolutely cry-worthy “I do”. Makes me want to read the whole series all over again so I can share their HEA over and over.
Reviewed from an ARC received from the author for an honest review.
Marry in Haste. Hell, Yeah
Warning: Do not read this book if you dislike weddings.
Reid wants a ring on Zarley’s finger, but Zarley doesn’t need a wedding to feel married to Reid. Owen is ready to start a family, but Cara isn’t sure she wants kids. Sarina is pregnant and proposed to Dev and he wants a wedding—by the weekend.
Venue, guest list, invitations, the dress, the suit, rings, vows, catering. It’s a lot to get done in a few days. What could possibly go wrong?
Only one thing is certain with this shotgun wedding, love is the trigger and hearts will take a direct hit of happiness.
For better, for worse, forever.
This is for readers who enjoy catching up with the HEAs of couples in the Sidelined series. All the stories in Sidelined can be read independently, in any order, except Shotgun Wedding, which is more fun if read after Offensive Behavior, Damaged Goods and Sold Short.
Shotgun Wedding includes a bonus Sidelined Origins story, Running Interference, about how Reid and Dev met Sarina and Owen.
