Goodreads:  Alexis Barr is focused on one thing, and one thing only—making sure Alethea Stone, her best friend, who months ago almost died, has the wedding of her dreams. Sounds easy, right? 

What she doesn’t expect is for Alethea to go behind her back and ensure Alexis has her own dream come true. 

Over a year ago, Alexis ended her own engagement because she lost faith in Ethan James, her soul mate. In the past year, she’s tried hard to move on: she started her own pastry photography company and is finally happy, or so she thinks. 

Thrown together with Ethan as part of the wedding party, Alexis has to fight against the pull in her heart to reconnect with Ethan. But since he’s determined to win back her heart…is she strong enough to resist or is it all ready too late for her? 

During Alethea’s bachelorette party, a game of Truth or Dare is played. Rather than face the truth, Alexis takes a dare...and kisses the first man she sees. 

Guess who that is? 

Kritters Thoughts:  A short novella that although may not be lengthy, it still packs quite the punch!  Alexis and Thea have been friends for awhile and the reader learns quickly that they have been through a lot together.  While Thea is getting ready for her wedding, Alexis is still feeling the pain from her broken engagement.  Thea is determined to set things right and quickly!

My favorite part is that the author was still able to hold a secret back in a novella and release at the end and still have a satisfying ending.  I always get weary of novellas as they don't have the extra pages to work with and therefore can sometimes give everything away at the beginning or not have a full ending.  This one had both and well rounded characters.  I wouldn't mind a full novel to follow with these characters!

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
