The first I have read by this author, or of this series I was able to get a recap of earlier matches all wrapped up with a short and quick new match for Nathan and Becca. Rachel Gibson’s writing is clever and pithy, interactions are well written and quick introductions and backstory gives readers a sense of the characters that enhances their appearance.
Not having known the story or characters, the business of the early half of the story made some of the comings and goings feel rushed, although their connections are present and palpable in their interactions. For his part, Nathan is trying to repair a ‘bad boy’ reputation, particularly with Becca. He lost a few points from me with his not quite ‘clearing his decks’ with the current girlfriend before moving on to pursue Becca. I will give back a point for actually ‘feeling bad’ about it – but the whole questionable decisions on his part is there and did give me pause.
Overall though, for a novella, the quick romance between Becca and Nate and the other happy relationships, a wedding and a new baby. Their relationship developed and blossomed quickly, while I won’t say “too” quickly, I do wish we had more time with them as they formulated their bond. It was a fun read nonetheless, and I think those who have read this series from the beginning will adore this installment.

In New York Times bestselling author Rachel Gibson's newest novella, Vince Haven and Sadie Hollowell are headed to the altar, and all their friends are headed to Lovett, Texas, to join them for the party of the year.
But Becca Ramsey doesn't have time for all that. Fresh out of beauty school, Becca's all business … and the last thing she needs is bad boy Nate Parrish anywhere in her life.
In the past, Nate was trouble. He's been trying to repair his reputation—heck, he's even got just one girlfriend. The problem is, she isn't Becca. Now Nate's in a whole lot of hot water. He needs to get Becca from "I won't" to "I do" … but how can he do that when she won't even say "I might"?
