Ever since Daphne Harper graduated from college, all of her friends have fallen in love, become engaged and walked down the aisle. Be it a blessing or a curse, Daphne (a hopeless romantic and perpetual single girl) catches the bouquet at every single wedding she attends.
Daphne’s love life is a mess. Her first love, Mayson, haunts her heart and keeps her from pursuing happiness with any man who comes along. As she struggles to move on from the one who got away, Daphne wonders if she will ever break her curse and find her happily ever after.
I liked this book, I did not love it. I never felt any real connection with the characters. I felt that Daphne’s inability to get over Mayson after everything that he did was unrealistic. He dated her, left her, came back took her virginity left with no word, and shows up years later at her friends wedding to mess with her head some more.
Once Daphne met Tanner I knew she wasn’t ready for that relationship, she needed to get Mayson ALL the way out of her system. Her relationship with Maysons mother was not going to allow her to move on and when his mother gave her the ring I wanted to hit her for being so selfish. I knew she had good intentions but if she didn’t know 100% that the ring was for Daphne then she should have never shown it to her.
Tanner was a good man that was put into a bad situation from the start. I think if he knew how deep Daphne was into Mayson he may have waited a bit longer to pursue her. He also was right to walk away when he did, she needed to choose between a fantasy in her head or the real thing. I did like the way she decided to win him back.
