Sadie McAllister is fastidious to a fault-but that serves her well as a personal chef to her clients in Denver. But her earliest attempt at managing romance was a bust when Erik Davis declined her invitation to the school's eighth grade Sadie Hawkins Dance.
Having celebrated the big 3-0 by ending a relationship, Sadie is tired of romantic relationships-by-text. The only man she knows willing to put down his iPhone and have face-to-face conversations with her is Erik. It's time to put a 21st-century twist on the Sadie Hawkins' tradition of a woman going after her man. He may not be the hero of her romantic dreams, but she can propose to Erik and achieve some sort of happily ever after with her best friend.
Erik is good at two things: his freelance job and maintaining casual, no-one-gets-hurt relationships with women. What is Sadie thinking, proposing to him? This is marriage-not a middle school dance. Erik decides to show Sadie what romance looks like when the man takes the lead. And while he's at it, he'll prove just how wrong they are for each other. But when he realizes he's fallen for her, can Erik convince Sadie his just-for-fun dates were the prelude to "'til death do us part"?
This is part of the Year of Weddings novella series.
Beth Vogt is a talented author who can create a story for you to love in about 100 pages. This friendship-turned-true-love novella is a wonderful read. It is a the perfect setting for a novella, as it is more realistic than strangers meeting and falling in love.
The friendship is believable and fun to read. The banter between Erik and Sadie is entertaining to read. The love that was always there and comes to the surface is endearing to read. I also liked how both Erik and Sadie had personal moments of talking with God and/or trusted spiritual friends. There is nothing in life that we don't need God for and Beth Vogt put that into her story in a natural way.
I look forward to reading more from Beth Vogt.
