#BookReview: One and Only (Bridesmaids Behaving Badly #1) by @jennyholi with @crossroadreview

About the Book:

In this laugh-out-loud romantic comedy, USA Today bestselling author Jenny Holiday proves that when opposites attract, sparks fly. 
Miss Responsibility meets Mr. Reckless


With her bridezilla friend on a DIY project rampage, bridesmaid Jane Denning will do anything to escape--even if it means babysitting the groom's troublemaker brother before the wedding. It should be a piece of cake, except the "cake" is a sarcastic former soldier who is 100% wicked hotness and absolutely off-limits.


Cameron MacKinnon is ready to let loose after returning from his deployment. But first he'll have to sweet talk the ultra-responsible Jane into taking a walk on the wild side. Turns out, riling her up is the best time he's had in years. But what happens when the fun and games start to turn into something real?


"Holiday's books are on my favorites shelf with Jennifer Crusie, Julie James, and Rachel Gibson."
-Rachel Cross, author of Rock Him

About the Author:
Jenny Holiday started writing in fourth grade, when her awesome hippie teacher, between sessions of Pete Seeger singing and anti-nuclear power plant letter writing, gave the kids notebooks and told them to write stories. Most of Jenny’s featured poltergeist, alien invasions, or serial killers who managed to murder everyone except her and her mom. She showed early promise as a romance writer, though, because nearly every story had a happy ending: fictional Jenny woke up to find that the story had been a dream, and that her best friend, father, and sister had not, in fact, been axe-murdered.

From then on, she was always writing, often in her diary, where she liked to decorate her declarations of existential angst with nail polish teardrops. Eventually she channelled her penchant for scribbling into a more useful format. After picking up a PhD in urban geography, she became a professional writer, spending many years promoting research at a major university, which allowed her to become an armchair astronomer/historian/particle physicist, depending on the day. Eventually, she decided to try her hand again at happy endings—minus the bloodbaths. You can follow her on twitter at @jennyholi and @TropeHeroine or visit her on the web at jennyholiday.com.

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: This was a laugh out loud story that would be great for the summer at the beach.

Notes and Opinions: This one was very cute and at times full of cheese that worked well for the light-hearted plot. I really have to say that Jenny Holiday is now a fav. author for me!! This was a very cute story with a lot of chemistry between Jane and Cameron and I cannot wait for the next story!! This is one that you want to grab and put yourself in a room alone so you can finish it in one setting. 

Go Into This One Knowing: Friendship, Some Moments of Cheese and light-hearted story!
