Hot Finsh by Erin McCarthy

Hot FinishSuzanne and Ryder Jefferson went around the marriage track once before but it sort of ended in disaster.

Now, after 2 years of divorce, Suzanne is broke and turns to wedding planning to help her pay the bills - even though Ryder offered to help her - but her first client is an ultimate Bridezilla putting more and more stress on her life. Which is why she doesn't need the added shock of finding out she and Ryder never divorced.

Finding out that they aren't divorced, Ryder isn't sure how he feels about the whole thing, and he does resent that Suzanne keeps talking about their marriage like it was hell because, to him, it wasn't.

Once they loved each other very much and, with the backdrop of a Nightmare Wedding, they sort of start wondering exactly where they went wrong and if they could make it work again.

I was really looking forward to Suzanne and Ryder's story because they feature a lot in the two previous books of the Fast Track series because it has always been obvious that there were still feelings there. It was really nice to dig into their relationship and see how Hot Finish turned out to be a story about second chances.

Both Suzanne and Ryder are a bit of the guy of the relationship, neither of them is comfortable with her feelings and that sort of makes them muddle things too many times - I did have a Fix it Up Already! moment with them - they are just so bad to express real emotion, and it sort of has to do with the toxicity of their previous relationship and the fact they DON'T LISTEN!

But, over all, it was a nice book.

Favorite Quote:
“Did I ever tell you the difference between a Northern fairy tale and a Southern one?”
“What’s the difference?”
“A Northern one starts ‘once upon a time,’ while a Southern one starts ‘y’all ain’t going to believe this shit.’ ”
