Story Overview:
The ninth work in the New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling series that started with Beautiful Bastard. In this e-novella, Will Sumner and Hanna Bergstrom (from Beautiful Player) find that a wedding and everlasting love were just the beginning.

One Player tamed. One nerd girl satisfied. And one more major life decision to make. When Will fell for Hanna, her quirky sense of humor and fierce dedication to her career were part of the attraction. (Not to mention her coy newbie attitude toward sex and her willingness to let him teach her everything.) But when the job offers start rolling in for her—and oh, they do—Hanna has trouble deciding what she wants, where they should live, and how much she should burden Will with the decision. Magic between the sheets is only one part of a relationship...getting on the same page is quite another altogether.

My Review:
I really do love how these authors have created these little novellas to give us another glimpse at the moments in time for the characters that we've already fallen in love with. This one is about Will and Hanna's wedding, and it was just so sweet. Like all the Christina Lauren books, there were tons of laugh out loud moments tempered by sweet, romantic vignettes that left me with tears in my eyes. 

I love that it feels real, too. It's so easy to think "yay, they had a happily ever after moment and now everything is perfect in these characters lives." That's not realistic. These little glimpses show that, too. No, everything isn't perfect, but that doesn't change the devotion, commitment, and love. And for me, that makes these little vignettes even more romantic than the main books where they fall in love. 

In this one, the characters are dealing with a lot of stress as they prep for their wedding and then go about life when their lives are in flux as Hanna tries to decide on a post graduate program...leaving Will left out and at loose ends. It was a GREAT story!

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
