Going Down on One Knee
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.
Talk about romantic comedies. This is just what the doctor ordered if you are a fan of these types of books. Brek and Velma were great. Although, they had help in the form of friends and family. Which I hope to see more of again in the future.
Brek is like a fish out of water in the wedding planning game. He rides a motorcycle and plays guitar. Yet, family is important. So, when his sister needs him to help out, he is willing to lend a hand. Brek gets off to a rocky start with a bride that bails, a wedding dress covered in chocolate and dog puke, and invitations that look like a child made them with tons of gold glitter.
Velma is just as lost about wedding planning but if she wants her sister's wedding to go off without a hitch, she better help Brek. You could feel the heat radiating between Velma and Brek. They did not disappoint when they finally hooked up.
