    My new favorite adult contemporary novel of the year! What a fun, sweet, HONEST portrayal of two people falling in love. I felt like I knew these two characters from the beginning. As the story progresses, so did my attachment to them. As most love stories go, there will be hiccups along the way, and since I felt so invested in these characters, my heart broke right alongside them. But I was also cheering for their happily ever after, too.

    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 an interracial relationship. One of the best books I’ve

Like it’s kind of hilarious how much they eat.

    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.

    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.

    The Wedding Date is easily my favorite take on Fake Dating ever. That's probably because Alexa and Drew's "Fake Dating" Scheme didn't last the entirety of the book. There was something so natural about the transition of their fake dating to their tip-toeing around defining their relationship after which involved weekend trips to see each other from across the state. In a way, it felt effortless and like I was actually watching the relationship of two people I knew unfold. Organic development was the main thing that drew me in about their relationship and made me root for them so much. While they were on their weekend of fake dating at the wedding, Drew tells Alexa to make sure to tell him if he does anything that bothers her. In that instance, it made Drew and Alexa's encounter so much more real. I don't know how to explain, but that was when I knew how great they were. Also, it was a nice diversion from other Fake Dating novels I've read in the past where one party will do something the other is uncomfortable with in order to convince everyone they're dating. And, of course, the whole "hey I met you in an elevator please be me fake date for a wedding this weekend" thing was adorable and had the whole fate/chance encounter trope which I'm a huge fan of.

    Alexa and Drew were such unique characters. Drew was a swoon-worthy Doctor working in Pediatrics in Los Angeles. Alexa was a black lawyer turned Chief of Staff working for Berkeley's Mayor. I loved that they were both career driven individuals. We actually got to see the work they were doing too. Sometimes that'll be brushed over, but that wasn't the case with The Wedding Date. Alexa had an awesome arts program she wanted to create for at-risk teens, and we got to see that a lot throughout the novel which was cool. Alexa and Drew had very different problems in their life but I loved how they each helped each other when things got rough (there's a really amazing scene which I'm referring to & it was so perfect). Alexa is Black and Drew is White. During the course of the book, there were instances when Drew says/does ignorant things and Alexa calls him out. Over the course of the book, Drew learns to be aware of his white privilege and how it impacts Alexa.

    One of the problems I tend to have with Romances is the lack of development for side characters. They can feel like cardboard cutouts who are there to conveniently help the main character in their times of need. That was not the case with The Wedding Date. I loved seeing Alexa and Drew interact with their friends separate from each other. Drew had a best friend, Carlos, who wasn't afraid to give him advice and it was great to see a close male friendship (Pssst Carlos is also the hero of Jasmine's next book, The Proposal, so keep an eye out for that one hitting shelves in September.) Then, there was Olivia, Alexa's sister, who was a lawyer in New York. Alexa wanted to make up for her past poor treatment of her sister and that was a decent part of the novel, and I loved the resolution and the bits we got to see of her. I PRAY we see more of the side characters featured in The Wedding Date again in the future...

    I absolutely adored the setting (cause I'm a biased Californian). The story started in San Francisco at the wedding and then goes back and forth between Los Angeles where Drew lived and Berkeley where Alexa lived. It was a lot of fun to see recognizable places. Plus, In-N-Out was eaten and mentioned several times over the course of the book.

    I would 100% recommend The Wedding Date to anyone look for a good romance to read. If you like Fake Dating, have a passion for In-N-Out, or are looking for a Romance set in California, then The Wedding Date is definitely for you.

    So joke's on the publisher for this one because I was totally going to buy this book anyway, on release day even, but now I don't have to! Free book!! You guys lost my $8 or whatever!! Just kidding, I will probably still buy it. It was good!

    So joke's on the publisher for this one because I was totally going to buy this book anyway, on release day even, but now I don't have to! Free book!! You guys lost my $8 or whatever!! Just kidding, I will probably still buy it. It was good!

    So the premise here is that Alexa and Drew meet by chance in an elevator when it stalls in a fancy hotel. He's there for the weekend, a groomsman in the wedding of his ex-girlfriend and one of his best friends. He isn't looking forward to it. Alexa is there to celebrate her sister becoming partner in her law firm. They hit it off and spontaneously decide that Alexa will go with Drew to the wedding, which somehow turns into her pretending to be his girlfriend. But it's pretty clear from the beginning that both of them are attracted to each other for real.

    I was actually pleasantly surprised that the wedding itself is only in about the first third of the book. The rest tracks their relationship from them just being lust-bunnies all over each other to falling in love. There are some obstacles thrown in their way, but they're mostly internal ones. There were some iffy little moments that slowed down the pace, and I thought there was a bit too much time spent on the middle part without much plot movement, but mostly I just had a fun time reading this. I'm definitely in for any future books Jasmine Guillory writes.

    I am a sucker for wedding movies. The Wedding Date, Something Borrowed, Made of Honor…seriously I could watch those over and over again. When I heard about this book, to say I was excited is an understatement. Two people meet in an elevator and decide to go to a wedding together? I had to read it!

    Nothing exciting ever happens to Alexa Monroe. But the moment she gets stuck in the elevator with Drew Nichols, an extremely attractive man, she can't help but feel like something is going to happen. D

    I am a sucker for wedding movies. The Wedding Date, Something Borrowed, Made of Honor…seriously I could watch those over and over again. When I heard about this book, to say I was excited is an understatement. Two people meet in an elevator and decide to go to a wedding together? I had to read it!

    Nothing exciting ever happens to Alexa Monroe. But the moment she gets stuck in the elevator with Drew Nichols, an extremely attractive man, she can't help but feel like something is going to happen. Drew feels it, too, and finds himself asking Alexa to attend the wedding with him that he's in town for. To her surprise, Alexa says yes and Drew and Alexa have a blast pretending to be dating to all of Drew's friends. Alexa and Drew find themselves flying out to visit each other on weekends and can't stop thinking about one another. But they live hours away. And they don't need to date; Alexa has her job working for the mayor and Drew is a doctor. They don't have time. But sometimes, you can't plan for love…

    From the beginning this book was so much fun. I loved how Drew and Alexa flirted in the elevator when they met and how they just clicked with one another. It was fun watching them act like they were dating at the wedding. Then, when it came to saying goodbye, they didn't want to leave each other. Of course, it's so hard two people who live so far away to fall in love when they both have such established jobs where they live already. Add in the fact that Drew is scared of commitment and has never calls a girl his girlfriend, he's super conflicted over this new relationship and woman he can't stop thinking about.

    As Drew and Alexa spent more and more weekends flying between each other, I appreciated how they both had to take a hard look at each other and what they were doing. Drew was so sweet and really listened to Alexa and her projects and what she was dealing with at work. Drew was also having a tough time with his own job and other things to think about while thinking about his relationship with Alexa.

    While this book started out as a wedding romance, it quickly grew into two people who enjoyed each other's company and wanted to see each other more. While they had their relationship to ponder over, they each also had story lines that were very touching and added so much more to their characters. For a fun and sweet wedding romance, you have to pick up The Wedding Date!

    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 Alexa lives close to San Fransisco as the mayor’s chief of staff. Both have important jobs and busy lives, but they can’t seem to stop seeing one another. They figure out a way to make it work. Although nothing is defined with them, you can tell (even if they can’t) that they starting to fall. It’s just unclear how this will work between them…

    Alexa is a refreshing heroine. She is spunky, fun, independent, and career driven. I loved her personality. Drew was also a fun guy- he was sweet, charming, and smart. These two truly were a fantastic match! Even if they didn’t see how perfect they were for each other at first, as a reader, I could see it! Their love story was fast paced and light, and also felt realistic. I adored them both and their connection.

    I love a good, swoony romance, and

    really hit the spot for me! I found this book highly entertaining, flirty, fun, and sweet as can be. I recommend it and I’m looking forward to reading more from this author!

    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 asking. The problems that Alexa and Drew have are pretty much all due to a lack of communication. In the book’s defense, Drew is open about his relationships and I totally get Alexa’s reluctance, but still.

    I did love the mentions about race and creepy guys and the fact that Alexa wasn’t a stick thin blonde. Her and Drew are both very likable characters and it was easy to love the last chapters and the epilogue.

    **Huge thanks to Berkley for providing the arc free of charge**
