About the Book

Lexi Burke has always been a stickler for following rules and procedures. As a human resources manager for a leading Gulf Coast chemical company, it’s her job to make sure everyone else falls in line, too.

But after losing out on a big promotion–-because her boss sees her as too much of a yes-woman––Lexi adopts a new policy of following her heart instead of the fine print. And her heart knows what it wants: Jason Beaumont, a workplace crush who is off limits based on her previous protocol.

While navigating a new romance and interoffice politics, Lexi must find the confidence to stand on her own or face a lifetime of following someone else’s orders.

Who says nice girls have to finish last?

Raining Romance Books Giveaway Hop Feature:



I was totally caught off guard with this book, in a good way. Chapman surprised me with a clever narrative and lovable characters.

Reality TV show involving wedding planners, estranged old flames reunite, along with family issues conjoin creating a nifty plot. Chapman balances the ingredients with ease. The plot carries a certain depth exploring multiple themes and an array of topics. The pace is perfect filled with numerous surprises and multiple layers. The awkwardness and tension between Elliot and Eric was well done, the slow build of the random tender moments was perfect. Their shared apprehension and assumptions cause plausibility. The reader will cheer for both Elliot and Eric as they try to mend the years separating them as well as their painful past. Elliot steals your heart, wonderful watching her blossom and stand up for herself. Characterization was exceptional, enough back history, secondary characters were introduced with detail too. Chapman keeps you guessing until the very end. Whimsical story not lacking a punch. Fun read filled with strong messages.

“Even if I never find love again, I did once. I loved and was loved, and it was beautiful. Sometimes it lasts forever. Other times it’s for a year of college. But it is never forgotten.”

About the Book

Always the wedding planner, never a bride, Elliot Lynch is famous for orchestrating the splashiest weddings in Charleston, South Carolina. When her father’s sloppy management practices leave them on the brink of bankruptcy, Elliot will do whatever it takes to save the family business. When asked to appear on “The Marrying Type,” a reality TV show about the people behind the scenes as couples exchange I dos, she says yes to the invasion of privacy (and the hefty paycheck that comes with it).

With a camera crew capturing every detail of her life, Elliot faces her most challenging contract yet: planning a wedding where her ex is involved in every part of the process. Add in a lazy assistant, liquor-loving bridesmaid, and rival planner encroaching on her turf, and Elliot’s wedding season goes from high-end to high-stress.

Forced to confront her past, Elliot must live out her troubled present on national TV if she has any hope of saving her future.
