Going Down on One Knee

GOING DOWN ON ONE KNEE                     CHRISTINA HOVLAND

Number-crunching Velma Johnson’s perfectly planned life is right on course.

That’s a lie. Sure, she’s got the lucrative job. She’s got the posh apartment. But her sister nabbed Velma’s Mr. Right. There has to be a man out there for Velma. Hopefully, one who’s hunky, wears pressed suits, and has a diversified financial portfolio. He’ll be exactly like, well… her sister’s new fiancé.

Badass biker Brek Montgomery blazes a trail across the country, managing Dimefront, one of the biggest rock bands of his generation. With the band on hiatus, Brek rolls into Denver to pay a quick visit to his family and friends. But when Brek’s sister suddenly gets put on bed rest, she convinces Brek to take over her wedding planning business for the duration of her pregnancy.

Staying in Denver and dealing with bridezillas was not what Brek had in mind when he passed through town, but there is one particular maid-of-honor who might make his stay worthwhile.

Velma finds herself strangely attracted to the man planning her sister’s wedding. Problem is, he ticks none of the boxes on her well-crafted list. Brek is rough around the edges, he cusses, and doesn’t even have a 401(k). But trying something crazy might get her out of the rut of her dating life—so long as she lays down boundaries up front and sticks to her plan…

PAT'S REVIEW


What a fun and good story about two people Velma Johnson who has a good job, a good apartment but not a guy. She uses an algorithm on her computer after every date to rate the men she went out and so far nothing. Her sister found her mister right in the office Velma works in. Now they are getting married but want together so Velma can meet the best man, his name is Brek. When a badass biker guy shows up in her parking space that man turns out to be Brek Montgomery. By the end of her night, it becomes only worse for her because Brek needs to stay in town and take over his sister’s three wedding’s coming up including her sister’s. While agreeing she finds life completely different with a biker who walks around in his boxers showing off his tattoos, cursing just a few of were complaints. She also finds herself attracted to him but cannot date him because he travels as a band manager, does not have insurance and a retirement account. Can Brek break her down and if he does can it have a chance at working out. This is a very funny book at times especially with Brek doing wedding invitations, and not understanding why a bride would be upset with him using flag stamps instead of loved ones. Seeing the change in both characters is fun to read also. Liked the story and the characters. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars. Follow us atwww.1rad-readerreviews.com
