Sunny Shelly’s Review: The Wedding Dilemma, by Mariah Ankenman

The Wedding Dilemma by Mariah Ankenman is now live! 

My life has always been pretty predictable. Run into burning buildings, save those in distress, be a hero. Shoot the shit with my fireman buddies, come home, and do it all again tomorrow. Little did I know that a random SOS call from a woman stuck in a plaster cast with nothing underneath (I swear I only caught a flash of skin) would throw me for a complete loop.

Until I see the flighty artist again. At my mom’s engagement party. To her dad.

Suddenly the unpredictable woman I couldn’t stop thinking about is my soon-to-be-stepsister. Yeah, the same one I mortified when I accidentally saw her a tiny bit naked. This should make family gatherings way more interesting.

Except when your mom’s as loaded as mine is, you can never fully let your guard down when a guy comes sniffing around. So I can’t help but be suspicious, even though his daughter’s the perfect blend of beautiful and wild. As we spend more time together, prepping for our parents’ wedding, we both agree that maybe there’s nothing wrong with having a little bit of fun in the meantime. But if she knew I was investigating her dad on the side, she would never forgive me…

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

An awkward meet-cute between hunky firefighter Parker and free-spirited artist Tamsen leads to a charming romance in The Wedding Dilemma — unbeknownst to either of them, her dad is engaged to his mom. There was an instant spark between Parker and Tamsen, and that only grows as they spend more time together.

I hesitate to say that this is a “forbidden” romance because both Tamsen and Parker are grown adults living lives of their own — it’s not like they are teenagers. But there is an undercurrent of “forbidden” in the sense that Parker is investigating Tamsen’s dad and keeping that a secret. His mom is rather wealthy and hasn’t always made the best choices in her love life. So while Parker is trying to protect his mom, his investigation has the potential to blow up his and Tamsen’s relationship when she discovers what he’s been doing behind her back.

This story is charming and sweet, with a few laugh-out-loud moments and adorable characters. I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
