Title: Two Wedding Crashers
Author: Meghan Quinn
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Where I got it: ARC from Inkslinger PR
I don’t know what love is anymore.
Well, that’s not entirely true, but I’m going to tell you a little secret: I’ve lost the spark.
You know the kind of spark I’m talking about?
Where butterflies take flight in your stomach from two hands innocently colliding. Or catching your breath when you first meet someone attractive. Yeah, that spark.
Except I haven’t felt that feeling in forever; there is nothing left inside of me.
Normally, this wouldn’t be a problem–but I’m a writer on a serious deadline, and my editor is breathing down my neck for a romantic, Nicholas Sparks type love story. No pressure, right?
That’s how I find myself flying across the country to crash a wedding in the name of research, dress and heels stuffed into my small suitcase.
It should be the easiest book research ever. Drinking some free champagne, basking in the love of two strangers, and tapping into my romantic side. That will be a breeze. I’m a pro. I can handle this.
Until I mistakenly end up in the wrong hotel room, naked as the day I was born, with the sexiest human I have ever met staring me down, wondering what I’m doing taking a shower in his bathroom. I don’t think calling it research will get me out of this pickle.

I was so excited when I got the email that I was getting an ARC of this book. Ecstatic. Thankfully, the book was just as amazing as I thought it would be.
Beck Wilder, who we met in book one (better know as “The Rebel”) is in a rut. He hasn’t been with a woman in a really long time and he starting to feel ready. When his friend Chris suggest he come to a wedding in Key West with him and crash, Beck decides it a good idea.
Rylee Ryan is a romance author who lives in Maine. Rylee has had a tough year, and her friend suggests that she come to a wedding in Key West and crash. She hesitantly agrees.
You can imagine what happens from there. Beck and Rylee meet, hilariously, when Rylee takes a shower in Beck’s room after having been puked on during her flight (the same flight, ironically, that Beck is on – he witnesses said vomiting). She walks out of the shower to see Beck standing in the doorway, staring at her nakedness.
Beck and Rylee quickly discover they are both crashing the wedding, and decide to have a little fun while in Florida. They have great chemistry, and hilarious banter. While hanging out, they make up hilarious stories that they tell people about themselves. I laughed out loud several times.
But they both had a back story – we knew this from Beck, but we didn’t know what his story was. It was a doozy, and made him even more likable. Rylee’s back story wasn’t predictable, but when it was revealed, I wasn’t surprised (but I was disappointed) in how she acted.
Both Beck and Rylee’s friends, who played side roles in the book, were great. I especially loved Victoria, a historical fiction author who seemed stuck in the 1800’s. So much funny back and forth banter between all the characters. This book had it all.
I would recommend this book to anyone.
