After a humiliating end to her engagement, investment banker Sidney Sinclair is done with commitment-phobic men. But when her sister winds up engaged after a whirlwind courtship, she’s thrown in to close contact with exactly the kind of sexy playboy she wants to avoid—the gorgeous best man. She’s stuck with him, for better or worse, until her sister walks down the aisle, but that doesn’t mean she has to give in to his smooth advances, no matter how tempting they are…


Special Agent Vaughn Roberts always gets his man on the job and his woman in bed. So Sidney’s refusal to fall for his charms only makes him more determined to win over the cool and confident redhead. Only what starts out as a battle of wills ends up as a serious play for her heart. Because the one woman who refuses to be caught may be the only one Vaughn can’t live without…


It Happened One Wedding started off hilariously. It was such a great scenario (though not so great for Sidney) and I loved how Vaughn tried to use it to his advantage. Their initial meet turns into an awkward, and unbeknownst to them, introduction later. I love awkward situations and the way Sidney and Vaughn meet, the setup, was great. Simon and Isabelle were also a great secondary couple. There’s also enough of the FBI life to satisfy my curiosity without it being an overload of information. Julie James writes good, funny, and sexy contemporary romance and It Happened One Wedding hits the mark. All I need to do now is catch up on reading her books.

  1. I read this one a couple weeks ago and really liked it. It was my first Julie James book. I need to make time to read more of her books.

    1. Yes, you do! I really enjoy her books. I'm missing a few in this series, so I need to fix that.

  2. She's one I've so been meaning to try. I love those awkward moments too where you can just *feel* it. Thanks for the heads up on this one!

    1. You should definitely give her books a try :)

  3. I loved this book and it made me go back and re-read all the previous ones!

    1. I missed a few books in this series so I need to go back and read them. I especially want to read the one involving the Twitter terrorist.
