Review by Booklist Reviews

*Starred Review* There are three reasons why Wendy Liu is not looking forward to best friend Jane Denning's upcoming wedding. First, despite what Jane promised, preparations for the wedding are anything but "low-key" and "super-fun." Second, while Wendy is thrilled that Jane has found true love, she can't help but think that once Jane is married, their best-friend status will change. Third, Wendy has spent the last decade or more successfully avoiding Noah Denning, Jane's brother and the man who broke her heart, and now she is going to be forced to spend a considerable amount of time with him. Holiday crushed it with One and Only (2018), the first in her Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series. In this second installment, she proves conclusively that she is no one-hit wonder by serving up another irresistible mix of lively, piquantly witty writing; sharply etched, marvelously memorable characters; and some completely combustible love scenes that are guaranteed to leave burn marks on readers' fingers.

Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

Holiday combines class and sass with a hefty dose of humor in her second Bad Bridesmaids contemporary (after One and Only). Workaholic New York lawyer Noah Denning has looked after his family for so long that he's forgotten to live for himself, too. Toronto defense attorney Wendy Liu hasn't gotten over Noah standing her up for their high school prom 17 years earlier—though he had a good reason—and when he visits Toronto, she finds reasons to be out of town. Then Noah's sister, Jane, who's been Wendy's best friend since childhood, asks Wendy to be her maid of honor, and Wendy feels obligated to accept, even though avoiding Noah will be impossible. When Noah and Wendy decide to throw dueling parties in Las Vegas for Jane and her fiancé, they fight to outdo each other—and struggle to resist their reconnection, as Holiday beautifully illustrates through wry, snappy dialogue with a hint of vulnerability on both sides. Wendy's determined never to let anyone break her heart again; Noah's not going to rest until she gives him another chance. Holiday doesn't skimp on burning-hot scenes of passion, and this winning hero and heroine will take up residence in readers' hearts. Agent: Courtney Miller-Callihan, Handspun Literary.
