Summary: Bridesmaiding is a tedious business at the best of times, but as Julia discovers, the task is particularly cumbersome when one of the brides is your ex and her fiancée won’t stop sulking about it.

With the wedding threatening to dominate everything for the rest of the year, a bewildering embrace with a devastatingly attractive pop star offers a welcome distraction. Dating Krisha catapults Julia away from the paltry concerns of dress fittings and hen dos, but it also takes her away from her friends, and directly leads to her most disastrous f**k up yet. Much to her surprise, she discovers that embracing the role she’d accepted so reluctantly might just be exactly what she needs.

TW: Suicide & Self Harm

Thank you so much to author Victoria Holmes for kindly sending me an e-arc of the book to read and review.

Review: Okay this was such a fun read, the characters are all written so well, I love the friendship group each one intermingled perfectly with their personalities. I’m so happy the ending was as I wanted it to be (though I won’t spoil it) it had me smiling so big and squeeling a little as I wanted it from chapter one.

First off Krisha was such a bitch and Julia was so dumb for latching onto her, she got deluded by a hot celebrity liking her. I actually felt bad for Julia though like she could so see the errors but didn’t want to admit them to herself as duh hot celebrity. Though she got played and her time was heavily wasted with her plus how much it put a strain on every other aspect of her life.

Wow did Julia screw up literally everything in her life, I could see some parts coming that some areas were going to crack completely but wow I didn’t see everything she was going to totally screw up. It was highly entertaining reading it, but she was blind to the hurt she was inflicting on her friends. It kinda made me wanna scream at her for screwing it all up so badly, but then you also feel awful for Julia too.

I really enjoyed this book, it was easy to read, it was fun, entertaining, makes you laugh in places. It was well written and thought out carefully, the characters worked amazingly together and I’m so happy to have had the opportunity to read it.

If you are looking for a really fun and very good lesbian romance I recommend that you read it, it’s worth your time. You’ll quickly get into the story and the characters dynamic will draw you in instantly.
