An arranged marriage and a bad boy who breaks all of the rules…
My father’s been planning my wedding day for longer than I have. Since I turned seventeen, he’s sent me on date after date with people from the film industry–producers, directors, actors… I’ve dated–and turned down–them all.
But Ryde Alexander is the worst. He’s vapid, self-obsessed, and it doesn’t help that his sister is evil in a pair of Louboutin heels. Too bad he’s the one my dad is determined to send me down the aisle with the day I turn eighteen.
My only escape is a food delivery boy and a motorcycle my dad would have a heart attack if I got on. But I don’t care. I need to get away, and Ronan is more than happy to take me.
But this forbidden getaway driver is starting to mean more to me than the man I’m supposed to marry.
The only problem is, I may not have a choice.

While this book wasn’t my favorite in the Curvy Girl Club series, I still enjoyed it.
I liked getting to know Zara in this book. She was always the feisty and confident one of the group so it was nice to get into her mind and see a different side of her. I think maybe her character surprised me the most out of the 4 we’ve read about so far. She was much more daring and a consistent risk-taker, which I didn’t expect.
Ronan was also a good character to get to know. He felt different than the other love interests and had a lot of spunk, which made things fun. There was even that little surprise that presented itself about him and made certain events in other books more fun.
I think my biggest problem with this book was that we didn’t really get an introduction to the love interest until like a 1/4 of the way through the book. The problem/conflict of the story was presented, but I still didn’t know how it would conflict with her romance because we’d only briefly met him like once.
Along the same lines, the pacing was a little too slow for me. A lot of the book dragged along, which is something that almost immediately turns me off of a book. I was happy that I love this series and knew that I wanted to keep going with the book.
Overall, I wasn’t entranced by this book, but there were still many parts that I enjoyed. As usual, the body positivity was very inspiring and uplifting. I can’t wait to read the concluding book of this series!
