One wedding. No funeral. One unqualified catastrophe.

Dominic was the little white lie 30-and-still-unwed Sophy Metcalfe told to soothe her nagging mother. But now her perfect sister Belinda is tying the knot and Sophy's going to have to produce the charming, successful ideal boyfriend she invented, since the genuine article vanished after a single, resoundingly unsuccessful evening.

Desperate, she hires a male escort sight unseen to get her through the Nuptials from Hell. But the trouble with white lies is they tend to multiply, especially at a gala disaster filled with new intrigues and old flames. And the trouble with Josh, her hired date, is he's kind of cute, in a rugged, too sexy for his own good way. And then there's the biggest trouble of all, because every wedding day is followed by a night. And, of course, a morning after. Download and start listening now!

    " Alright written, would be fine if not for all the rampant internalized misogyny, boy delirium and weight obsession. I couldn't like or relate to the main character, no matter how hard I tried, because she was so horrible to other women and hard on herself in a way that came across as insignificant and self-righteous. The writer also insists on having every single female character have broken up with their exes because the guys cheated on them -- which comes across as a case of "women become unlikable if they break up with men unless they've done something unforgivable." Which they are not. The love interest is appealing enough, though at one point I started feeling bad for him because Sophy was so full of hatred, even if he wasn't aware of it. The book also walked around the potential taboo-ness of the premise by [SPOILER] having it turn out Josh was only working as an escort as a favor to a friend who ran the company Sophy called up, and didn't actually work as an escort at all [/SPOILER], which I get, I do, but which is also an enormous cop-out. (And I thought The Wedding Date, which is very loosely based on this, pulled it off, so clearly it's not an impossible plot point to handle.) Anyway, really don't recommend this book. Would go as far as to anti-recommending it, even. "

    " I remember being pretty entertained by this when I read it, but that was 8 years ago. Definitely chick lit, but it was pretty funny, and the writing wasn't bad. (I do remember for sure that it was ten times better than the movie they made from it, The Wedding Date. That movie was lifeless.) "

    " Funny and interesting to read a British author. Story line is funny but at some point it goes to far and you wonder when it will come to a close. "

    " Funny story about a 30 year old girl who lies to her parents that she has a boyfriend and she goes so far as to make up all this information about him. When it comes time for her sisters wedding they expect him to be there and so she hires someone from an escort service. Her attitude throughout and the funny stuff that happens makes it a cute book.
