Better At Weddings Than You
by Mina V. Esguerra
Daphne Cardenas is the best wedding planner around, and everyone knows it. That’s why her friend Greg hired her as an emergency replacement one month before his wedding—because he fears his fiancée Helen is falling for the guy they first hired for the job.
Aaron Trinidad is new to the wedding industry but years of conference planning and loads of charm make him good at it. Really good at it. Planning the wedding of his friend Helen should be easy, and it is. To be unceremoniously fired isn’t good for his new career, but the chance to learn from the best might be the silver lining.
Aaron and Daphne have chemistry, but there’s history with Helen that at least one other person considers a threat. Who’s the planner who can fix this impending disaster?
Planning a wedding is Daphne Cardenas’ expertise. She’s the one who meets every bride’s demands, who talks to couples having second thoughts, who makes sure that their dream wedding come true. When she was asked to take over her friend’s wedding, she was stumped. Not only did she feel bad for the one she was replacing, she knew a wedding disaster would unfold if the bride had other groom in mind.
I can always count on Mina Esguerra to level up her game and make sure that the cliched insta-love wouldn’t make readers cringe. Daphne and Aaron may have met a few days before spending their “honeymoon” together, but this kind of relationship is slow-burning and intoxicating. I wouldn’t mind getting a backrub from Aaron Trinidad on our first date, mind you.
Better At Weddings Than You is such a fun read; I had a grin on my face nearly the whole time I was reading it. Daphne isn’t your typical lady-in-waiting, she’s smart, defined and professional on the outside, and a one hot dynamite inside the bedroom. Aaron needs all the help he can get when it comes to planning a wedding; but he’s an expert in the honeymoon phase. Go figure.
I always found Esguerra’s writing very captivating. I love how she engages the reader from the beginning and allows to connect with the characters until the end. This isn’t my first book by the author, and it definitely isn’t the last.
