Something old. Something new…?

When Chloe Cassidy is jilted at the altar it’s all her nightmares rolled into one. Her mother is convinced she’s the victim of the family curse. Her sister believes she just hasn’t found The One yet. But Chloe’s not listening; she’s too busy taking her humiliation out on the infuriating best man, Vaughn Brooks.

Three months later, Something Borrowed—her wedding planning business— is failing. In a last ditch attempt to save it, Chloe is forced to swallow her pride, and work with the enemy: too-hot for his own good, award-winning chef Vaughn. She soon realizes the sparks flying between them are nothing to do with their dubious past, but from something else altogether…

This fun perfect summer read features one sizzling chef, a meddling family and a wedding planner who's given up on love.

There's something about a jilted bride that intrigues me. I'm not sure exactly what about the situation draws me in like a moth to a flame. I can't help but read books about it. I'm interested in how these men and women get past the hurt and the embarrassment. Not everyone is great at illustrating the "after", but I find that Louisa George did a fine job.

Chloe was left at the alter by her fiance... and her best friend. She was obviously humiliated and took it out on the best man, Vaughn. I guess no one told her not to shoot the messenger. As a result of the scandal, her business, Something Borrowed, a wedding planning service, starts to fail. She swallows her pride and turns to Vaughn for help.

Chloe was likable enough. She carried some bitterness that left her a bit jaded when it came to love, relationships, or men in general and that definitely didn't help her business. But it was impossible for her to resist the overall hotness factor that embodied the incredible Vaughn (loved this character). I really liked him and how persistent and determined he was to bulldoze her walls.

As the blurb says, this was a fun read!
