Don’t Kiss the Bride by Carian Cole is now live!
I guess you could say I was a damsel in distress, and he was my knight in shining armor.
But more accurately, I was a girl with a lot of bad luck, and he was a guy with a lot of muscles and tattoos.
Jude “Lucky” Lucketti wasn’t just a sexy, brooding construction worker. He was my own personal hero who seemed to be in all the right places at the right times. Like when my car broke down and I needed a ride home, and when I face planted on the sidewalk right in front of him and had to be taken to the emergency room.
Those weren’t exactly my best moments, but they were his.
We became friends, and it didn’t matter that he was sixteen years older than me. We had a lot in common—like our love of old rock music and vintage fast cars, and our aversion to relationships.
When he approached me with a crazy idea to help me out, I couldn’t say no.
The arrangement was supposed to be temporary. A marriage on paper and nothing else.
It should’ve been easy, but it wasn’t.
Because here I am, eighteen years-old, still in high school, and married to a man I was never supposed to fall in love with.
We had just one rule—no kissing the bride.
But we broke that rule, and it sealed our fate forever.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
I signed up to read this book without knowing the title or what it was about. Risky, yes. But I was so captivated by the last (and only other) Carian Cole book I read that it was a chance I was willing to take. And Don’t Kiss The Bride was spectacular! Like Aunt Suzy, I was totally shipping Lucky and Sparkles!
This age-gap romance could have been creepy. Jude is 34, Skylar is 18. But he doesn’t come across as creepy at all, just wanting to do something to help out a young girl who reminded him of his sister. I found this emotional rollercoaster of a romance to be so well written, so captivating, so engaging. My heart broke for Skylar and the horrid condition she was living in. And Jude… he was a sweetheart underneath all of that ink and hair!
Despite their difference in age and stages in life, Sparkles and Lucky just clicked. They made each other better, and things were better for these two abandoned souls when they were together. It was hardly an easy ride for them, but I cried happy tears by the time I got to the end!
And the cameo appearance by Asher and the love advice he gave to Jude was awesome to read!
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
Carian Cole has a passion for the bad boys, those covered in tattoos, sexy smirks, ripped jeans, fast cars, motorcycles, and of course, the sweet girls who try to tame them and win their hearts.
Born and raised a Jersey girl, Carian now resides in beautiful New Hampshire with her husband and their multitude of furry pets. She spends most of her time writing, reading, and vacuuming.
