After an app she develops crashes and burns, Olive Peale tries her hand at the family business. Running a wedding venue can’t be as hard as writing code… right?
As if juggling bridezillas and cheating grooms wasn’t stressful enough, a rival venue swoops into town with fireworks, helicopter rentals, and a charming owner.
Wesley Belmont wants to be Olive’s friend.
And maybe something more.
But what would an arrogant playboy like him want with a nerd like her?
Unless he’s determined to put her out of business…
With her family business in trouble, Olive turns to her trusted gamer friend Culler for help.
Wesley and Culler are as different as night and day.
Culler would be the perfect ally against Wesley.
Culler is the perfect man, actually.
Except for one problem…
Olive doesn’t know his name.
Has never seen his face.
Never met him in real life.
Until Culler suggests they meet.
And Olive discovers she’s in for the surprise of her life.

I was really excited for this one (and I’m in love with the cover), but unfortunately, it let me down.
I didn’t expect the quirkiness this book exuded. I can handle some quirk, but this was just too much for me. It felt like every character in this book was extremely quirky in some form or another. It couldn’t be escaped.
Along with the characters, the plot suffered quite a bit in my opinion. For a while, it didn’t even seem like this story was taking me anywhere. A lot of the scenes felt very random and I just wasn’t sure where this book was headed. As well, the ending felt strange…and not very romantic.
My one positive for this book is that there seemed to be a good setup for the second book. All the essential characters were introduced well and I think things were well prepared for the next book.
Overall, this had too much quirk and not enough romance and plot. For those who enjoy a lot of quirkiness, this might be the book for you!
