Kiss the Bride by Jody Wallace Herman Edward Heckley knows all about drywall, concrete, and nail guns. So what's he doing fighting off taffeta in a bridal salon? He's maid of honor for his best friend, Caroline Oakenfeld, in her wedding to a pencil-necked geek. But the closer he gets to the ceremony, the more he wonders if he's been missing out all this time. Caroline has been missing out, and she knows it. Shes been in love with Heck forever, but frittering her life away until Heck wises up isn't part of her life plan. She's agreed to marry her boyfriend so she can move on with her life. But the closer she gets to the ceremony, the more she realizes she has to resolve her feelings for Heck. For better or for worse.


MY REVIEW:

          Kiss the Bride (A Tallwood Novella) was just such a fun over the top book.  Caroline Ann Oakenfield (Caro) and Herman Edward Heckley III (Heck) were best friends since diapers.  Caro has been in love with Heck for longer then she can remember.  She has even waited for him even after her divorced and she let him cry on her shoulder and she moved back home to Tallwood to let him do it.

     But enough is enough.  A woman needs to get on with her life.  Even though she doesn’t love Dan (the Pencil Neck as Heck calls him) the way she loves Heck and never will, Dan has given her the “Either we get married now after almost 4 years or we are done speech.”  Over the phone no less, so she mustards up the courage to say a lack lustered “Yes.”  Then she calls Heck and ask him to be his Man (maid) of Honor, he says, “Yes.” 

     Jhi her girl BFF since she moved back home to Tallwood knows all about her secret love for Heck and can’t understand why Heck can’t get it.  So, for that she just hates the guy on principle, plus she feels he has stolen her spot as maid of honor.  But you have to hand it to Heck he does all the Maid of Honor duties and he gives it that old college try.  Maybe not the way Martha Stewart would have done but all from the heart and all for Caro because he does love her like a sister, right?  Or is there now something brewing in the undercurrent when he sees her in her wedding dress and notices she has, OMG! BOOBS!!!  The poor guy just figures out Caro is a girl and a sexy as hell girl at that.

     Heck doesn’t like Pencil Neck because 1.) He doesn’t like Heck. 2.) He proposed over the phone. 3.) He didn’t give her a ring. 4.) He is not raising a finger to help with the wedding and it was his idea. 5.) Now this is a big one he found out he has stopped having S-E-X with Caro.

     Did I mention Jhi has a plan to fix this? Well, she does.  I loved a lot of this book there were parts that dragged but not too long.  There is SEX in this book be aware of that so if you are okay with that then this is the book for you.
