Kiss Me, Sweetheart by Codi Gary Review

4.5 Smooches


The bridesmaids and groomsmen for hire at Sweetheart, California’s Something Borrowed have the cure for celebrity wedding headaches. But even a job that’s strictly business can lead to the 
real thing . . . 
Rylie Templeton had big dreams, until she quit culinary school to take care of her father and signed on with Something Borrowed. Suddenly years have gone by and she’s still a bridesmaid-for-hire, with her idea to open a gourmet bakery on the back burner. Scoring a high-profile wedding could help turn her life around, if only she didn’t have to share the spotlight with her coworker, the insufferable—and undeniably gorgeous—Dustin Kent.

Instructed to make it work, Rylie plunges into the wedding festivities with Dustin by her side. If only she could convince him to turn his spectacular charm on someone else! But the enigmatic, reformed playboy has his own ideas about romance, and they all include Rylie. As the nuptials get closer, Rylie realizes that Dustin’s wooing is actually working, and that the two of them might make a good team in more ways than one . . .


I love Codi Gary, and I REALLY love the Something Borrowed series. Kiss Me, Sweetheart is the second book in the series and much like the first it is sweet, fun, and the perfect easy read. I found myself smiling from beginning to end.

Rylie is a character from the first standalone I was curious about. She’s smart and sexy, but she has had a hard time in life. Dustin is sexy and what you picture when you think about a millionaire. But there is more to him than what everyone sees. I was hooked on these two from the start and quickly became very invested in them getting their HEA.
