From Elyssa Patrick comes a light, sexy, emotional contemporary romance perfect for fans of Jill Shalvis, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, and Bella Andre, about what happens when a fake relationship becomes all too real. 

One fake relationship . . .

Ginny Michaels has always been a good girl and—ever since surviving a school shooting a little over a year ago—hailed a hero. Except she doesn’t feel like a hero. She can't even have a one-night stand with sexy Wes Dalton properly. When her big city fling resurfaces in her hometown with an intriguing proposition, she's powerless to resist. A fake relationship is exactly what's needed to keep her small town's matchmakers at bay during the upcoming wedding season. If only her attraction to Wes were as easy to ignore.

Too many real kisses . . .

Wes Dalton doesn’t have many regrets, and that includes his night with Ginny. But he's always hoped to strengthen his relationship with his estranged family. When his father’s health takes a bad turn, Wes puts his life on hold and moves to the meddling seaside town of Cape Hope. With his barriers in place—and a beautiful woman to help him hold them up—he's prepared for anything. Or so he thinks. Despite his determination to leave as soon as the summer is over, those fake kisses are starting to feel an awful lot like the real thing.

My Review:

Four Weddings and a Break Up was such a cute and romantic story to read. I found myself liking the characters personalities and the overall plot. Ever since Ginny Michaels survived a school shooting, the town of Cape Hope has been calling her a hero for saving her students by taking a bullet in order to protect them. But Ginny doesn't feel like a hero, because although she saved her students, she couldn't save the one student that started the shooting. She takes fault on that, and that has affected in a major way both physically and mentally. Now that hasn't stopped everyone else from seeing her as a hero and when it comes to love, her town has taken the job to find her the perfect man. Not only is wedding season in Cape Hope and she along with her sister's bakery are busier than ever, but when she sees her one-night stand Wes Dalton in her town she doesn't have any idea just how much her life is going to change.

To Wes Dalton, the one-night stand that he had with Ginny hasn't left his mind. It's all he can think of, but he knows that he'll never see her again. Now he is called back to Cape Hope to help out his step-brothers and his sick father and things aren't turning as well as he would like them to be. Not having a proper relationship with them has hurt the way they see each other, but now his dad is sick and he is needed in Cape Hope more than ever. Wes knows the town very well and he also knows that there is going to be a lot of matchmaking involved, but when he sees Ginny everything changes and his proposition to her can either help the other or hurt them in the long run. One thing is for sure, Wes has to go back to his life in Las Vegas by the end of summer, without getting romantically involved with anyone. 

The thing that I liked the most about the book was how there was character development in both of the main characters. Ginny hasn't had the best year after the shooting and she grows a lot throughout the book. So did Wes's relationship with his family, it grow and his view on commitment change for the better. Overall, the story was consistent, it was very well-written and the ending was just perfect for the story. I highly recommend it. :)

I love the sound of this one, it just seems like such a light and refreshing read despite the fact that the main characters had a lot going on for them in their lives. Great review :)
