Review 'Brown-Eyed Girl' by Lisa Kleypas


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18126966-brown-eyed-girl
Wedding planner Avery Crosslin may be a rising star in Houston society, but she doesn't believe in love--at least not for herself. When she meets wealthy bachelor Joe Travis and mistakes him for a wedding photographer, she has no intention of letting him sweep her off her feet. But Joe is a man who goes after what he wants, and Avery can't resist the temptation of a sexy southern charmer and a hot summer evening.

After a one night stand, however, Avery is determined to keep it from happening again. A man like Joe can only mean trouble for a woman like her, and she can't afford distractions. She's been hired to plan the wedding of the year--a make-or-break event.

But complications start piling up fast, putting the wedding in jeopardy, especially when shocking secrets of the bride come to light. And as Joe makes it clear that he's not going to give up easily, Avery is forced to confront the insecurities and beliefs that stem from a past she would do anything to forget.

The situation reaches a breaking point, and Avery faces the toughest choice of her life. Only by putting her career on the line and risking everything--including her well-guarded heart--will she find out what matters most.

My Review:


I have to admit I hadn’t heard about Lisa Kleypas before I received this book for review. But when I read the book description I was really happy to get the chance to read this book. Especially since I’m planning my own wedding at the moment, I loved reading a story about a wedding planner.

In ‘Brown-Eyed Girl’ we meet wedding planner Avery Crosslin. Avery is a rising start in the wedding planning business. But although she is very good in her job, she doesn’t believe in love and marriage for herself. After a rough past Avery is determined to keep men at arm’s length. But when she meets wealthy bachelor Joe Travis, Avery is surprised to find herself being swept of her feet rather easy. But Avery isn’t going to fall for Joe. That is the plan at least.. But Joe isn’t helping her at all.

‘Brown-Eyed Girl’ is a sweet story that was easy to read and a perfect distraction after a very hard and long workweek. Maybe it is because I’m planning my own wedding at the moment, but I really enjoyed reading about Avery and her job as a wedding planner. Since Avery really is a perfectionist and a control freak, her job lead to some very funny moments and I loved reading about it. Especially since I’m a control freak too.. So lots of things I could relate too.

Romance wise, ‘Brown- Eyed Girl’ was good but never really impressive. The romance seemed kind of rushed at moments. And I definitely hoped for a longer chase. I enjoyed reading about Avery and Joe. But I kind of thought Avery would resist Joe a little longer. Now it kind of felt like Joe didn’t have to work that hard at all. And it didn’t seem to fit the story.

But despite that I really enjoyed reading ‘Brown-Eyed Girl’. It was fun and a perfect getaway. And I definitely plan to read more books by Lisa Kleypas.
