Suzanne Jefferson is broke, which is why she's given up charity work for wedding planning. Fortunately, she has a high-profile client-and best of all, he's paid in advance. There are just two teensy problems: the bride is a bona fide bridezilla, and Suzanne's stock racer ex- husband is the best man. At least she though he was her ex-husband...

Gah. I am so glad I found this series years ago. I actually laughed until I hurt during Hot Finish. It was an excellent second chance at romance story that had me completely smitten as Ryder and Suzanne battle it out as they help plan his best friends wedding and find love with each other once again.
"You have sixty seconds to get your butt in this car or I'm hitting the gas, and I don't give a shit what I run over of you. Your pretty dick is going to lose it's place in the penis pageant after it's had an SUV roll over it."Okay. So it wasn't exactly smooth sailing as Suzanne and Ryder are pushed together. The pair are divorced and just something else. They can push each other's buttons and really don't hold any punches. I mean these two are...fiery together. There are some heart breaking moments as they work things out but some absolutely hilarious ones as well while they deal with wedding plans and all that comes with it.
"This is a peach champagne filling in a traditional white cake."I've always liked Ryder and how you could tell he still really cared for his ex-wife Suzanne even if she drove him crazy so I was really excited to see him as the hero finally and I so wasn't disappointed in this sexy laid back alpha male. Suzanne though I was a bit nervous about--the woman has a seriously inappropriate mouth on her--but by the end she completely won me over. I loved watching these two figure things out and move on from the past. It was just a nice read and a wonderful romance.
That didn't even sound good. Ryder put it in his mouth. Blech. It didn't taste good either. Dropping the role of verbose food critic, he just said straight out, "This is like eating bubble bath."
"This is chocolate hazelnut meringue," Suzanne said, her voice getting a little clipped. She shoved the fourth piece at him.
The chocolate melted in his mouth, and Ryder longed for a glass of milk. Now this was cake. "Two thumbs up. This is rich and moist, and the hazelnut hint keeps it from being pedestrian."
Suzanne's eyebrows shot up. "You've been watching the Food Network, haven't you?"
He was busted. "Maybe. Just a little. On Mondays."
There was a long pause where she just stared at him, then she started laughing. It burst out with a loud crack, and Ryder couldn't help but laugh, too.
