Lyrical Shine

The bridesmaids and groomsmen for hire at Sweetheart, California’s Something Borrowed have the cure for celebrity wedding headaches. But even a job that’s strictly business can lead to the real thing . . .


Rylie Templeton had big dreams, until she quit culinary school to take care of her father and signed on with Something Borrowed. Suddenly years have gone by and she’s still a bridesmaid-for-hire, with her idea to open a gourmet bakery on the back burner. Scoring a high-profile wedding could help turn her life around, if only she didn’t have to share the spotlight with her coworker, the insufferable—and undeniably gorgeous—Dustin Kent.
Instructed to make it work, Rylie plunges into the wedding festivities with Dustin by her side. If only she could convince him to turn his spectacular charm on someone else! But the enigmatic, reformed playboy has his own ideas about romance, and they all include Rylie. As the nuptials get closer, Rylie realizes that Dustin’s wooing is actually working, and that the two of them might make a good team in more ways than one . . .

In Kiss Me, Sweetheart (Something Borrowed #2) by Codi Gary, Rylie Templeton is working as a bridesmaid-for-hire with Something Borrowed until she can make her dream of opening a gourmet bakery come true. However, working alongside the gorgeous Dustin Kent is proving difficult, especially when he's so determined to win her over. Will Dustin be able to win Rylie's heart or will they lose their chance at happy ever after because someone else wants Rylie's for themselves?

Having absolutely loved the first story of this series, I couldn't wait to read more about the women that work as bridesmaids-for-hire, and I've got to say that Rylie and Dustin's story was a wonderful addition to Ms. Gary's Something Borrowed series. Really, it had a wonderful combination of intense moments and playful banter that had me loving the main characters; obstacles that include whether Rylie can trust Dustin because he's an enigmatic and reformed playboy that seems to attract women wherever he goes. However, it was from the moment the hero and heroine discover they have to work together that made this story very interesting, as Rylie isn't all that enthused about having to work with Dustin. Will he prove that he can do a good job when it comes to what they've been tasked to do?

Both the main characters were fantastic and I loved every time they conversed, as the hero is determined to win the heroine over and help her in any way he can when it comes to the trouble that someone is causing for her. Moreover, the heroine is resilient and courageous in giving the hero a chance and in handling all the harassment she suffers from someone determined to scare her with the nasty name calling. Who is the person harassing her? Yet, what I liked most of all about the heroine was her passion for baking and how it helps her when she stressed. While the hero, he's enigmatic, confident and I loved how determined he was to win the heroine over, even though he's not sure he wants a relationship after everything he's been through in his past. I also liked how determined he was to help the heroine with all the wedding planning and to help her when things get tough. Why is someone stalking the heroine?

Overall, Ms. Gary has delivered a fantastic read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was delightful; the romance was nicely-detailed; and the ending had me worried for one of the main characters, but had me loving how these two end up together, as a confession of love is good for the soul. I would recommend Kiss Me, Sweetheart by Codi Gary, if you enjoy the enemy to lovers trope, or books by authors Melissa West, Gail Chianese, Rachel Lacey and Miranda Liasson.
