The Anti Honeymoon by Bethany Michaels
No groom? No Problem.
When her fiancé tries to turn their wedding into a publicity stunt, Jenna ditches the nuptials, and the groom she shouldn’t have been with in the first place and skips straight to the honeymoon. The getaway driver, her ex-fiancé’s former business partner, Zach, is the perfect guy to help reshape her romantic newlywed itinerary into an anti-couple, anti-romance, anti-honeymoon adventure for two.
They trade couples yoga for kickboxing lessons. Five-star dining on the beach for pizza and beer at a dive bar. Forget couples massage, Jenna’s getting that tattoo she’s always wanted, and dares Zach to get one, too. And those naughty boudoir pics she took in place of romantic sunset snaps? Those aren’t going in anyone’s wedding album. Not that Zach will forget them anytime soon.
As each item on Jenna’s anti-couples list is checked off, the anti-honeymoon with Zach feels more and more like the real thing, and she wishes the list was just a little bit longer…and even steamier.
The anti-honeymoon by Bethany Michaels is a funny book…..
Poor Jenna feels like the whole of her wedding is a publicity stunt, the dress is horrid, the shoes too tight, but when her fiancé puts her two favourite people in the world in a tiny corner, Jenna’s had enough. It doesn’t feel right and after talking to Aggie (one of the people she invited) Jenna has some serious thinking to do…..
Zach doesn’t know why he’s come to this stupid wedding, he and Eliot haven’t been friends for a while, and when his ex-best friend walked away with the company they both worked on, that was the final nail in their friendship. Was Elliot trying to reach out with an olive branch? Or was it something else?
But before he can pull away, the back door of the car opens and a pile of while lace falls in…..
Zach helps Jenna to escape from the wedding. He then helps her get to the resort she’d booked for the honeymoon.
Zach hits a snag, he’s beginning to really like Jenna, would it be inappropriate for him to hit on the ex-fiancée of his ex-best friend?
Jenna and Zach seemed a much better fit than Jenna and her ex.
The “to-do list” Jenna has compiled made me chuckle, from couple yoga to kick boxing. It’s all in the name, it’s the opposite of whatever she had written.
I got the feeling that Jenna and Eliot were more of a parents wish for them to be together (they’d also known each other for years, until he’d asked Jenna to marry him)
Jenna and Zach are totally different, both into each other, ready to have a laugh and complement each other.
With both hoping that the anti-honeymoon will last for just a little longer…..
But what happens when the Anti-honeymoon is over? Where will it leave them both?
And is Zach using Jenna for information on a failing company that he use to half own?
I must admit it’s the first time I’ve heard of any of those things being done on honeymoon. But it did have me chuckling at odd moments.
