How far can one favor go…

Logan McCade arrives at his best friend’s wedding overworked and in desperate need of a vacation, only to discover his best man duties have been…expanded. He must coax Colton’s sister out of her shell, or risk her hiding in her room all week. Logan figures he can handle one introverted bridesmaid, but he’s not expecting how much he enjoys “handling” Sophie…or how much she enjoys being handled. 

Socializing has never been web designer Sophie Brooks’s strong suit, but she’s determined to shed her wallflower image and embrace the “New Sophie”—a feat made easier with the supremely sexy Logan McCade tempting her to explore all her forbidden fantasies. If she’s not careful, she just might fall for the best man.

Sophie’s sweet, sexy, and delectably awkward demeanor brings much-needed calm to Logan’s hectic life. With the nuptials only days away, Logan is forced to face the possibility that his favor to a friend might have become something else entirely…and that he’s not willing to let Sophie go. Ever.

My Review:
Okay, by this time, you realize that I have loved every single book in this series. This one was good, too, but it took a bit more time for me to warm up to the main characters. 

Sophie is the sister to the groom at this destination wedding. While everyone else in the wedding party have all been friends for a long time, Sophie isn't part of their circle. And it's not that they leaver her out because they definitely don't, but she simply doesn't fit. She's shy. She's the former ugly duckling who's spent the last six months of her life working to makeover her own life. But she still feels awkward and out of place. 

As the best man, Colt asks Logan to help Sophie fit in. Her brother Colt knows how difficult this week is going to be for this shy girl, but he doesn't count on the sparks between Logan and Sophie when he comes up with that plan. The thing is...Logan has his own difficulties this week. He's the CEO of his own outdoor adventure company and they are in the middle of a huge deal for the company. He thought that it was all taken care of before he left town so that he could enjoy the first few days he's had off in years, but then everything with the deal falls apart. When things go wrong between him and Sophie, it usually has something to do with his buzzing cell phone which never stops. 

Like every other book in this series, this book nailed it. The characters were wonderful and I just loved the two of them together. It seemed to take them longer to realize just what was happening between them, but I chalk that up to the craziness of both characters' lives through this week. I enjoyed the way that their story progressed even with the constantly buzzing cell phone. The conference call toward the end was just perfection for this couple and the way their relationship unfolded. 

The entire series has been amazing and I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the epilogue in this story in that it showed us everyone a year down the line. Perfection. I honestly can say that I have NEVER read a series that across-the-board was as well down as this one was. Well done to all the authors, the editor, and Entangled. Most definitely, this is a project that you can be so proud of because it proves the high level of excellence within the company. You can read any one of these five books alone, but I HIGHLY recommend that you read the entire series. So, so, SO GOOD!!!
