THE WEDDING DATE                                KATY REGNERY

Four Weddings and a Fiasco by Katy RegneryCurvy, vulnerable Jasmine has never had much luck with men and doesn't believe in true love. When she grudgingly accepts an invitation to her sister's wedding, the last thing she expects is to be seated beside gorgeous, teasing Robert.

Finding herself attracted to the handsome swimmer and won over by his kindness, Jasmine considers letting herself fall for the first time in her life. But, Robert's checkered past may become a problem, even if she can overcome her fears and give him a chance to win her heart.

Based on beloved characters found in Lucy Kevin's charming Four Weddings and a Fiasco series, The Wedding Date tells the story of Anne Fairleigh's half sister, Jasmine Turner and Robert Callahan.

MY REVIEW:
     What do you do when you come from a background with a huge lack of trust?  One of the two at a young age rebels and gets into trouble with the law.  When he is given a second chance Robert Callahan, 19, becomes a student at South Oregon University (SOU), and hold on with both hands.  He doesn’t have much time to date with swim team, practice/training, school/studying, and working to earn money for school extras.  He has a goal and he is meeting and working toward each one.
     He is asked by the bride of the wedding he will be attending with his family to be her new found step-sister’s unofficial date.  She doesn’t know anyone and since they are both under 30 it would be nice for her.  He agrees since Anne and Gareth, mainly have great to him and giving him a chance.  Plus Anne has been trying to hook them up for a while since her sister, Jasmine Turner, 21, goes to SOU too.  Jasmine has not made that easy.
     Jasmine has a low self-esteem due to not being raised with a father and made her not trust men.  To find out that she was the product of an affair her father had was just too much to take.  Men were off the list of serious ventures.  As well as marriage.  So, when she was invited to Anne’s wedding she truly didn’t want to go.  They agreed not to allow their father’s behavior taint their relationship, him being gone made it easier.
     When she meets Robert by chance so she thinks her guards go up.  Being slightly overweight with a rack that guys can’t take their eyes off of is not cool.  It was refreshing to her when Robert took one long glance at first after that when he spoke to her he looked at her eyes.  They flow easily into a bantering that is fun and exciting to Jasmine.  To the point where Robert says he’s giving her a pet name like all the guys on the swim team do.  The first one she vetoed.  The seconded she liked okay, “Mina.”  She said she just liked calling him Robert instead of the Bobby the family all called him.  From here on out they connect and disconnect and the outside elements intrude.  Honesty is important and openness to calm the fear.  I so enjoyed this book.  It was a fast read but the feelings that you went through with the characters were real.  I give this book 5 stars.  Provided by Net Galley.  Follow us at: www.1rad-readerreviews.com
