‘Sprinkled with oodles of charm…I simply adored this book’ Christie BarlowOne ex. One wedding. One little white lie.
When Samantha Jenkins is asked to be the maid of honour at her best friend’s wedding, she couldn’t be happier. There are just three problems…
1) Sam’s ex-boyfriend, Liam, will be the best man.2) His new girlfriend is pregnant.3) Sam might have told people she has a new man when she doesn’t (see points 1 and 2 above)
So, Sam does the only sensible thing available to her… and hires a professional to do the job.
Actor Jake Porter is perfect for the role: single, gorgeous and cheap! Sam is certain it’s the perfect solution: no strings, no heartbreak and hopefully no chance of being found out.
But spending a week in the Scottish Highlands with Jake is harder than she imagined. He is the perfect boyfriend, charming, sexy and the hottest thing in a kilt since Outlander! And his dog Harry is quite possibly the cutest things Sam has ever seen!
As the wedding draws closer, Jake plays his part to perfection and everyone believes he is madly in love with Sam. The problem is, Sam’s not sure if Jake is acting anymore…

My Review Of
The Wedding Date by Zara Stoneley
I read The Wedding Date by Zara Stoneley in one sitting with a bowl of popcorn and enjoyed every minute of (the popcorn too!) Samantha has been dumped by Liam, not just dumped but has found out that his new girlfriend is pregnant! Samantha must attend her best friends wedding and unfortunately two timing Liam is the best man. What follows is a sometimes hilarious , romantic and charming story. Samantha hires Jake, a hunky actor to play the role of her boyfriend but lets be honest here, I knew from there first meeting that there had to be more. Did I mention that Jake is a hunk, a dog lover and quite charming. Harry the dog stole quite a few scenes with his jump off the pages adorableness. This author knows how to create/write a leading man that is hunky, charming and lovable. I loved Samantha and her dilemma about Liam being at the wedding of her best friend along with her paid for “boyfriend” makes for a wonderful romantic comedy/chick-lit.
