Description

“Swoon-worthy! A beautiful love story I didn't want to end.” 5 stars for THE SUMMER WEDDING

If you love stories about amazing single dads, mouthwatering chocolate cupcakes, and friends who can’t remember why they were ever “just friends” in the first place, THE SUMMER WEDDING is the sweet, second-chance romance for you.

Two people who never thought they would find love again…
Jenn Fairhurst wants her Married in Malibu wedding cakes to be legendary. Her job baking sweet treats at the Southern California wedding venue means everything to her―even if she's not sure that she'll ever be able to love, or trust a man, again after going through a terrible divorce.

Two friends who can’t remember why they were ever “just friends” in the first place…
Daniel Brooker is an award-winning photojournalist who gave up his globetrotting career to become a wedding photographer after his wife passed away, leaving him as the sole parent to his son and daughter. After such a tragic loss, he never thought he'd be able to love again. Until he met Jenn.

The sweetest happily-ever-after…
Soon, Daniel is falling head over heels for Jenn and wants to show her what true love really is. But right when it looks like she might finally be ready to give love another try, her past comes back to haunt her. Will she be able to risk her heart again?

    This is a short, Sweet HEA that will make you feel the need to brush your teeth every 25 minutes! 😂 To really add to the sweetness, the main character bakes wedding cakes for a wedding venue. This book is best suited for young readers & older readers who do not want to have explicit sex scenes described ad nauseam. There are none of those in this book.

    Daniel and Jenn were simply too people afraid to share their heart again, but for different reasons. Daniel lost his first wife, leaving him as a single dad of two children and broken-hearted. Jenn married a man who tried to control her and not allow her to be herself. Also he was a cheater. Both Daniel and Jenn ended up working at Malibu Marriages. Jenn ad a baker and Daniel as a photographer. All the love in the air lead to one thing. Good read.

    This is my first Lucy Kevin read, and I must say I absolutely loved it. It's a different style writing than her Bella alter ego, a softer sweeter side that I really enjoyed reading. Jenn and Daniel were sweet to read about, and it was kinda hot to see Daniel go all alpha in defending Jenn against her kinda psycho ex. I would definitely recommend one clicking this book.

    The Summer Wedding by Lucy Kevin Book 2 in the Married in Malibu series spotlights another sweet romance story. This time Jenn, the talented wedding cake baker, and Daniel, the photojournalist turned wedding photographer decide if the time is right for a second chance at love. Lucy Kevin provides readers with amazing, creative, strong characters who are also caring, understanding and willing to take the time to make the right decisions. While this story can be read as a stand alone, I love how the cast of characters reveal different parts of their personalities as we spend more time with them. Thank you for the wonderful story.
  • Wonderful!

This series has romance, interesting and entertaining characters, happilly ever afters, and more. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next in "Barefoot Wedding" (Married in Malibu, Book 3). Another winner from Lucy Kevin (Bella Andre). Highly recommend to all fans of romance.

    The Summer Wedding is the latest release from Lucy Kevin, which is a "sweet" pen-name for Bella Andre. While I've read pretty much every book Bella Andre has written under her name, The Summer Wedding is my first book from Lucy Kevin. The Summer Wedding was a super sweet romance about second chances. I'm a huge fan of second chance romances and have to say that seeing Jenn and Daniel get a second chance at love gave me all the feels. Daniel is a single dad following the death of his wife, and Jenn's ex-husband cheated on her so she is single again. I'm usually more of a fan of a hotter romance, but I absolutely fell in love with Daniel and Jenn slowly moving towards being a couple. I loved that Daniel's kids were a big part of their courtship and loved they fell for Jenn every bit as much as their father did. I found myself pulled into The Summer Wedding and ended up reading it in almost one sitting. I love when I get so pulling into a story, I don't want to put the book down. Daniel and Jenn's story was just that story for me. I highly recommend this book to anyone romance reader who loves a strong, sweet, and emotional story. While The Summer Wedding was the first Lucy Kevin book I read, it definitely won't be my last. Rating: 4 Stars (B+) Review copy provided by publisher

    I received an ARC for my honest review. This story was well written from the talent of Bella Andrea and the Sullivan 19 book series. It's the romance with the main characters common people meet and falling in love.

    This is a very Sweet Second Chance at Love Romance proving that sometimes people are lucky enough to find it more than once in a lifetime. Both are so in their own little worlds just trying to move on and get by they don't even see the other coming. I love the way the author takes you into this destination wedding location and makes the people involved come alive. Very fun and entertaining read. Looking forward to visiting for the next wedding.
