|Summary, etc.:||"The next charming romance by The New York Times bestselling author of The Proposal. Maddie and Theo have two things in common: 1. Alexa is their best friend 2. They hate each other. After an "oops, we made a mistake" night together, neither one can stop thinking about the other. With Alexa's wedding rapidly approaching, Maddie and Theo both share bridal party responsibilities that require more interaction with each other than they're comfortable with. Underneath the sharp barbs they toss at each other is a simmering attraction that won't fade. It builds until they find themselves sneaking off together to release some tension when Alexa isn't looking. But as with any engagement with a nemesis, there are unspoken rules that must be abided by. First and foremost, don't fall in love"--|

Maddie Forest would do anything for her best friend, Alexa, even if it means helping uptight Theo Stephens plan Alexa's wedding. Theo is the press secretary for the mayor of Berkeley, so he knows that looks and demeanor convey a message; but Maddie, with her sexy dresses and her take-no-crap attitude, is a bit much for him. Then a ride home turns into an impromptu dance party, which turns into a very hot night. They agree that, even though they don't like each other, they can keep sleeping togetherâin secret. The problem is, hiding out involves a lot of intimate time on their couches, and they accidentally get to appreciate each other. Guillory (The Wedding Date, 2018) does such a good job conveying the electricity between the pair that, when the requisite conflict arises, it is overcome pretty easily. Still, this enemies-to-lovers story includes genuinely touching moments as Maddie and Theo learn some hard truths about themselves as they (spoiler!) fall in love. As always with Guillory, relationships with side characters round out this hilarious, satisfying romantic comedy.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Guillory's romantic comedies have earned the adoration of everyone from Reese Witherspoon to Roxane Gay, and this one should reach the same wide readership.
