Meant to Be Yours by Susan Mallery
Summary: Wedding coordinator Renee Grothen isn’t meant for marriage. Those who can, do. Those who can’t, plan. But she never could have planned on gorgeous, talented thriller writer Jasper Dembenski proposing—a fling, that is. Fun without a future. And the attraction between them is too strong for Renee to resist. Now she can have her no-wedding cake…and eat it, too.
After years in the military, Jasper is convinced he’s too damaged for relationships. So a flirtation—and more—with fiery, determined Renee is way too good to pass up…until his flame becomes his muse.
Renee is an expert at averting every crisis. But is she finally ready to leap into the one thing that can never be controlled: love?
4 stars. Meant to Be Yours is a super fun romance, following Renee, a wedding planner, and Jasper, a novelist. Renee isn’t interested in marriage or anything like that- more of a friends with benefits situation, but, of course, things don’t go according to plan.
Renee has a lot of interesting secrets that are revealed throughout the book. The reveals really worked and the characterization is great. Jasper has PTSD from his time in the army, and this is also fascinating to read about, and the other characters are great as well. The small town everyone lives in sounds so cute and magical- the descriptions were great. The wedding planning side of things was really fun and a lot better than many of the other wedding planning books I’ve read. The book had a super sweet ending, and was overall an exciting and cute page-turner.
