The Wedding Date Reviews

  • Roxane

    What a charming, warm, sexy gem of a novel. I couldn’t put The Wedding Date down. I love a good romance and this delivered from the first page to the last. Alexa Monroe is a great heroine—smart, funny, and full of the anxieties women know intimately. And when she meets the handsome doctor Drew Nichols in an elevator, it’s the beginning of an adventure in falling in like and then lust and then love. It was also nice to read a fun novel about an interracial relationship. One of the best books I’ve

It was also nice to read a fun novel about an interracial relationship. One of the best books I’ve read in a while. Oh. One weird thing. The characters ate CONSTANTLY. Like it’s kind of hilarious how much they eat.

    by Jasmine Guillory is charming, sweet, and downright adorable! I had trouble believing this was a debut novel- it was so well written and a pleasure to read!

    Alexa and Drew meet in an unconventional way. They’re stuck together in an elevator. Being stuck together leads to them going to a wedding together. After that, this couple just can’t seem to get enough of each other. Drew is a pediatric surgeon from LA and Alexa lives close to San Fransisco as the mayor’s chief of staff. Both have important jobs and busy lives, but they can’t seem to stop seeing one another. They figure out a way to make it work. Although nothing is defined with them, you can tell (even if they can’t) that they starting to fall. It’s just unclear how this will work between them…

    Alexa is a refreshing heroine. She is spunky, fun, independent, and career driven. I loved her personality. Drew was also a fun guy- he was sweet, charming, and smart. These two truly were a fantastic match! Even if they didn’t see how perfect they were for each other at first, as a reader, I could see it! Their love story was fast paced and light, and also felt realistic. I adored them both and their connection.

    I love a good, swoony romance, and

    really hit the spot for me! I found this book highly entertaining, flirty, fun, and sweet as can be. I recommend it and I’m looking forward to reading more from this author!

    One fake night of dating and the two begin seeing each other on the weekends (as she is in the Bay Area and he’s in Los Angeles). But a relationship that starts out as fake cannot end up real, right?

    This was the perfect book to pick up and forget your problems. Once I picked it up I didn’t want to put it down. While it’s not as big on the sexy times as most romances, it’s one where you will fall in love right along with the characters.

    Sweet, fun, enlightening and romantic, this debut novel needs to be your next read!

    - STEAMY!!!

    - Acknowledgement of power constructs in Eurocentric beauty standards being "conventional" or the "norm" and how that can result in fuller-figured WOC living in Western countries feeling insecure or out of place with their own beauty.

    - The food is legittttttt

    - Local Bay Area references 100% checked out, author is local. Love it.

    is an adorable romance about two people who aren't quite sure how to navigate a "relationship" that was never part of their plans. With a cuter than cute meet-cute, you'd expect things to go smoothly. But when you put together two people who aren't in their element, things are bound to get complicated.

    It's serendipitous when Drew Nichols and Alexa Monroe first meet. Drew needs a plus-one last-minute, and after getting stuck in an elevator together, Alexa agrees to become the good doctor's date to the wedding of his ex-girlfriend. From there on out, things go neither of them expect, not that their first meeting is something you'd expect to happen on a daily basis anyway.

    Drew isn't quite sure how to be in a relationship, and Alexa has never been in a situation like this. Both stand on shaky ground and are afraid that any step they take might ruin everything. They need to figure out what they are to each other and if it's worth fighting for.

    Drew clearly loves being a pediatric surgeon, and he's a pretty great one at that. So is Alexa. As the mayor's chief of staff, she has the power to start change. She's working hard to lobby a project that will help at-risk teens and is doing everything it can for the project to get the green light.

    It's sad how casually those issues came out in this story because it is how it is in real life. It's usually not a shout or a huge scene. It just is. So,

    This book was as cute as its cover!

    It was exactly what would happen when a couple like Alexa and Drew are in that situation. Once reality came knocking down their sexed-up and infatuated bubble, they didn't know how to handle it since they've never been in that situation before. I have to admit though that somewhere in the middle, things became a little repetitive. The story gained traction again soon enough, and I kept crossing my fingers they'll finally figure it out.

    There was Drew's best friend, Carlos, Alexa's officemate and friend, Theo, and her sister, Olivia. While they weren't always on screen, they helped keep the story going in their own ways.

    This book was a sweet and lovely debut novel, and I'm definitely keeping an eye out for Ms. Guillory's future works. If you're looking for a sweet and charming book with intense chemistry and realistic tension between two promising characters, you might enjoy

    Contemporary-A-Thon challenge #6: read a diverse contemporary -COMPLETE!

    This was mega cute. A little corny at times, but honestly what new adult romance isn’t a little corny at times? Would definitely recommend for someone looking for a fast and fun read set in the Bay Area!

    3.5 stars. While it’s true that the best day to read this contemporary romance is on Valentine’s Day, as the cover loves to imply, I wasn’t sure about it back in February.

    Then I changed my mind. Sometimes you really do need to trust a book’s cover when it tells you that you’re about to read an adorable and romantic story that will entertain you and warm your heart.

    3.5 stars. While it’s true that the best day to read this contemporary romance is on Valentine’s Day, as the cover loves to imply, I wasn’t sure about it back in February.

    Then I changed my mind. Sometimes you really do need to trust a book’s cover when it tells you that you’re about to read an adorable and romantic story that will entertain you and warm your heart.

    THE WEDDING DATE did that to me. How could it have not? My experience reading it turned out to be exactly like watching a romantic comedy movie. That’s because this author doesn’t overdo it, meaning that you won’t find entire pages filled with the characters trying to figure out their own emotions, pondering, pondering, pondering.

    Thank goodness. I often do not read contemporary romance because of this reason. Although I think descriptive emotions can help create a connection between the reader and the protagonists, if it’s not done well, it can make for a tiring and repetitive read.

    I don’t know anyone whose love story started with getting stuck on an elevator with a hot guy, so I can’t tell you that it’s a plausible situation, but I *can* tell you that once you get past the awkward encounter and fake relationship, you’ll enjoy the story more.

    For the first hundred pages, the dialog feels very forced. It didn’t make me cringe, fortunately, but I couldn’t picture anyone in real life saying those things without the other person pointing out how corny, cliché, cheesy they’re being.

    After the wedding, however, the characters can start to act normally, without pretending to be each other’s boyfriend and girlfriend in front of the bride, groom and the rest of the guests. That’s when we’re able to see Alexa and Drew’s real personalities and attitudes toward one another come out.

    I also appreciated the fact that the author didn’t just focus on Alexa and Drew’s relationship, actually diving deep into Alexa’s community project, making me care enough about it to wish I’d been there to encourage her on it myself. And though the times Alexa brought up race with Drew were a little uncomfortable, I’m glad she did. It would have been unrealistic if she hadn’t.

    I’m tempted to give this one a four-star-rating, since the more I read, the more I warmed up to this couple, but I can’t forget how disconnected I felt in the beginning. But to end this on a bright note, I know I will be rereading this in the future and will enjoy it even more the second time around.
