When Brody broke up with Paige and went to Europe, he suggested that someday, they’d pick up right where they left off. A hopeless romantic, she believed him. 

But when they meet again, Brody’s dating a gorgeous actress. 

They’re all going to attend the same wedding, and Paige plans to win Brody back. She even enlists her best friend’s brother, Aiden, to pretend to date her and make her ex jealous. A breezy, charming restaurant owner, Aiden actually avoids serious relationships, but as a fake boyfriend, he’s perfect. 

As old friends and exes take part in wedding preparations and enjoy the beauty of the Florida coast, they begin to see themselves―and each other―in a new light.

My Rating:  4 stars

BEACH WEDDING WEEKEND is a lighthearted friends to lovers / fake boyfriend-girlfriend romance with a touch of more serious undertones.  I was easily caught up in Paige’s and Aiden’s dilemma and enjoyed watching them figure out what was reality and what was pure fantasy.  They both had their own motives for pretending to be a couple for this weekend but sometimes what we wish would happen is the last thing we really need to happen.

My heart broke a bit as Paige came to realize that Brody’s promise of one day was nothing more than a way to leave without hurting her even more.  There were no true “bad guys” in this story, only people who had different plans for their life and maybe could have been more clear in their actions.  It was a fun adventure watching Paige and Aiden figuring out what those sparks between them really meant.

A cast of characters to enjoy, a solid romance and a very happy eventual ending – what more could a romance lover ask for?  If you’re in the mood for a fun summer romance then BEACH WEDDING WEEKEND should be on your radar.
