Book Review: I do (But I don't) by Cara Lockwod

Do but dontThe Deal: Wild hair aside, Lauren Crandell likes to think she has everything under control, she is, after all, the junior wedding consultant at Forever Weddings, doing everything short of standing on her head to make sure all her brides get the weddings of their dreams, even though he own perfect wedding ended in divorce a year ago.

So, as Lauren spends her days creating perfect days for others, she ends up meeting Nick Corona, a gorgeous firefighter who comes to the rescue during two of her weddings. At the same time, Lauren finds herself planning the wedding of the ultimate Psycho Bride, Darla, who is demanding, spoiled and might or might not be involved with Nick.

My Thoughts: My love for Cara Lockwood's Bard Academy Series not withstanding, I adored this book.

I do (But I don't) is a sweet and funny story full of misunderstandings (but not the annoying, that's so dumb kind), wedding talk and many mishaps big and small. I liked Lauren a lot because, even with her divorce and her insecurities, she hasn't given up on love and - though she can be very neurotic and makes mistakes - she's kind and likable.

Nick is an all around, honest-to-God nice guy - which in any way means he lacks character - and he had me sighing and wishing I met a guy like that too.

There are plenty of laughs as well.

I highly recommend this book

Favorite Quote:
"Because true love isn't about sheet music or embossed invitations or lace. It isn't about the size of your bridal party or the expensiveness of the food. True love is what you find when you aren't expecting it. True love is taking the risk that it won't be a happily-ever-after. True love is joining hands with the man who loves you for who you are, and saying, "I'm not afraid to believe in you."

A love like that has legs. A love like that will survive most anything.

Even a less-than-perfect wedding." - Lauren
