Goodreads:  Waverly Bryson’s life is officially perfect: She’s engaged to her gorgeous boyfriend, Jake; her Honey on Your Mind TV segment is more popular than ever; and Waverly’s Honey Shop is growing by leaps and bounds. What could possibly go wrong? For starters…everything.

This is Waverly, after all, and drama follows her wherever she goes. Why should her trip down the aisle be any different? Now, before she can marry the man of her dreams, she’ll have to go head-to-head with his high-society mother, whose vision for their wedding isn’t exactly meshing with Waverly’s. Adding to the chaos is the impending departure of Paige, Waverly’s very pregnant retail partner; the arrival of her suddenly secretive best friend, Andie; and the meddling of a new TV producer who’s promising to “shake things up.” Suddenly Waverly’s perfect life feels like it’s about to come crashing down…unless the irrepressible Miss Bryson can prove to the world—and to herself—that she really can have it all.

Kritters Thoughts:  The 4th in a series and as I said yesterday I may say a few spoilerie things, so if you haven't read book 1-3, you may want to stop here and start reading the books!

Waverly in book 3 finds her footing in her professional life and her relationship is moving but maybe not in as stable a place as her work life.  I think this book focuses much more on her relationship and the moves that will be made to solidify it.  Not only does it focus on her relationship, I think it also focuses on her friends relationship statuses also.

I know I stated yesterday that I like a well rounded book that doesn't focus on just the relationship because our lives are a balance of everything, but after reading book 3 with a little more of a focus on her job, I didn't mind this book focusing on her love life.  I think together they make a good pair, I wouldn't like this book without that one!

I loved getting to know Jake more and his family and really seeing how Waverly and Jake's future would be like with his big family and her very small family.  Spoiler alert - they get engaged and start planning a wedding and it was less of a bridezilla and more of a mother-in-lawzilla and I found it hilarious.  Thank goodness I didn't experience this so I could cringe and see the humor in it all!

I wouldn't mind more Waverly books and to continue to see how she does life.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
