About Beach Wedding Weekend:
You’re invited to a sunny beach town
for a witty, heartwarming romance.
When Brody broke up with Paige and went to Europe, he suggested that someday, they’d pick up right where they left off. A hopeless romantic, she believed him.
But when they meet again, Brody’s dating a gorgeous actress.
They’re all going to attend the same wedding, and Paige plans to win Brody back. She even enlists her best friend’s brother, Aiden, to pretend to date her and make her ex jealous. A breezy, charming restaurant owner, Aiden actually avoids serious relationships, but as a fake boyfriend, he’s perfect.
As old friends and exes take part in wedding preparations and enjoy the beauty of the Florida coast, they begin to see themselves—and each other—in a new light.
This summer romance includes a free Hallmark original recipe for BBQ Brisket Tacos with Sunshine Slaw.

Are you ready for a wedding? Beach Wedding Weekend is a friends to lovers/best friend’s brother romance novel. This book was okay, but it wasn’t a home hitter for me. The plot and characters were good, but the rest just didn’t click for me personally.
The plot of the book was good. I liked the idea of friends faking a relationship for mutual benefit. Add in the ex coming back with the new girl, you can bet drama and scandal are on the menu. I liked the plot. It was enough to keep me wanting to stay in until the end.
Paige is a good character. She had flaws I didn’t really care for, but for the most part I enjoyed her. She is quirky and fun. I like how she cares for others. Then you have Aiden. He is the definition of a playboy. Aloof and careless, he lives life by not taking it too seriously. I really liked how he was learning to find balance in his life.
The heat in this book I found lacking. I don’t mind less heat in a book, but this one I felt needed it. The chemistry between the characters was there, but it was muted. I felt the main girl was so caught up in her past, I wasn’t really able to root for her future.
The writing style of this book was ok. The pace of the book was a bit slow for me. I felt at times the book was dragging on. I did like that the story was told from a dual point of view. I also liked the other characters in the book. I really enjoyed the wedding aspect along with the ending.
In conclusion, this was an okay book. I really think this book would be for those who want a light read with minimal action. Especially those who like there books with less heat. I personally wouldn’t read this book again, but encourage you to try it for yourself.
