Reviewing and Reading books that were free or are free. You see, I finally caved and bought an eReader. Now I find I can't stop reading all the free books offered on the online market. Despite whether or not the book is a good read or not. In this blog I will weed through all books, whether it was amazing or a grammatically sad excuse for a book, because the point in the end is . . . HEY, IT WAS FREE!

Hey, It's A Blog Tour for "The Wedding Date" by Kelly Eadon
by Kelly Eadon
"The Wedding Date" Genre: Comedy, Contemporary, Romance. 288 pages.
A LITTLE FAKE RELATIONSHIP NEVER HURT ANYONE . . .
Kate Massie has big dreams-they just haven’t worked out. Yet. In the meantime, she spends her days clerking for a judge and her nights fantasizing about her tall, dark, and sexy gym crush. So when she runs into him one night, she’s shocked to realize he was her shy, nerdy junior-prom date. But that isn’t where the surprises end . . .
James Abell needs a date to his sister’s wedding. So when Kate agrees, he’s relieved . . . until one little lie turns their wedding date into a full-blown fake relationship. Only it doesn’t feel fake-not the toe-curling kisses and definitely not the electricity. Neither of them is looking for something real . . . but they just might fall for their own little white lie.
This novel was a sweet and quirky read with characters that had you "aww"ing one moment and laughing the next. The family drama keeps everything entertaining. Also the story is definitely a good read for a nice beach day, which I've tested.
Recently relocated back home to the beachside town of Belmont, Kate Massie, is trying to get her life back in order. Coming home was never Kate's plan especially when the job she's secured is underneath her credentials, but with the economy she took what she was given. The one bright side was finding a hottie at the gym to admire from a distance. Of course fate in a small town would intervene and Kate's gym guy just happens to be her old prom date who was gangly geek now turned man hunk. Not to let this fate of a moment pass him by James Abell wants nothing more than to ask his old crush Kate on a date. But James sister's wedding is just around the corner and through friend's matching Kate and he are set to go together. Problem is the Abell family wedding is sure to be a drama filled event with exes and mother-in-law galore.
Overall, cute easy read with a couple hot scenes. Honestly I thought this was going to be about the cliche fallout drama from the wedding date like similar books, but I was pleasantly surprised. My favorite part was the wedding scene itself, so many wedding books never actually write about the wedding and this author did it brilliantly, it was jovial and yet crazy as all family events can get trust me Hispanic weddings are loco. I also really loved how the Abell family grows on you, even if they seemed to be the scary foe in the beginning they turn out to be the glue. Now I will say the ending felt off as if James and Kate's drama was rushed or left open and then concluded with one quick cut conversation and a very cute epilogue. I really wanted something mentioned about James and Kate still being high school sweethearts, just saying missed opportunity in the epilogue. So if you are looking for sweet funny read involving wedding drama while two people try to reconnect by pretend dating, this book would be good.
