The Wedding Date Book Review || where sequels get better

Agreeing to go to a wedding with a guy she gets stuck with in an elevator is something Alexa Monroe wouldn’t normally do. But there’s something about Drew Nichols that’s too hard to resist.

On the eve of his ex’s wedding festivities, Drew is minus a plus one. Until a power outage strands him with the perfect candidate for a fake girlfriend…

After Alexa and Drew have more fun than they ever thought possible, Drew has to fly back to Los Angeles and his job as a pediatric surgeon, and Alexa heads home to Berkeley, where she’s the mayor’s chief of staff. Too bad they can’t stop thinking about the other…

They’re just two high-powered professionals on a collision course toward the long distance dating disaster of the century–or closing the gap between what they think they need and what they truly want…

I’ve read the Third book in the instalment first , and then picked this up.

The wedding date consists of my fave tropes
– fake date
– Oh no I might be falling for you
– I don’t wanna fall for you
– We did it anyway.

Alexa Monroe , the female lead is a career driven woman with a law degree working in the Mayor’s office with her close to heart pet project. When she goes to meet up with her sister for celebrating her success , the elevator gets stuck and she’s with this hot cute white guy who asks her to be his fake date for his ex girlfriend, and ,best friend’s wedding.

The plot wasn’t much interesting like the beginning. The beginning was wild and awesome which made the upcoming parts comparitively boring.


Drew , oh my God. Drew was the cliche douche bag MC falling for the girl he spontaneously met.

Drew wanted to stab himself in the head with a fork

Great job there , pediatrician!

Drew is supposedly brilliant , I guess?! He doesn’t really have any kind of character besides being the hot love interest with the heart of gold for kids and douchebag with women?!

Alexa , was an interesting MC without proper characterisation.. she was so interesting and everything at first. But along the way , she gets too nice?! and doesn’t follow through.


The pacing was amazing and the sex scenes were neither cringe worthy nor PG – 13. It was the right amount of Jasmine Guillory.

The supportive friends , and unexpected surprises with the bitchy blonds made this book too much of a romcom?!

The hot white dude ending up with the first black girl he dated and all the blondes being jealous is…. I’m still finding the right word to describe it. Well , let’s say it was too much Young adultish . And Alexa being nice to all of them and describing them basically scaring her as “they were all nice?!!” Like what the hell?? Where’s the bitchy salty Alexa in the beginning of the book???

Overall , a nice short read with great representations . Perfect for romance fans and who ever wants to step into Adult Romance.

Happy living

Have you read any of Jasmine’s books?!
