I went through so many feelings and emotions while reading this book, and I am going through even more now that I finished it. Getting to the end of it felt like the sweetest and sexiest kind of torture. It’s no secret that it has a happy ending, but it was such a rollercoaster getting there, pretty much just like Lucky and Skylar’s relationship. While unconventional, their love and care for each other felt like such a natural progression of their entire relationship. It was a soft kind of love, the softest. It was also something to swoon over, so hot and sexy, sweet and raw, and just perfect in all the ways. It was gentle and hard, emotional to perfection. I loved everything about it, including the realistic way that showed the natural fear of judgement from others due to where they each were in their lives at the time of their getting together. I have to mention that there’s a “tub scene” at some point that I think it’s one of the most erotic scenes I’ve ever read. I’d also be remiss not to mention the awesome cameo of Asher Valentine from the Ashes & Embers series, which, if this is your first Carian Cole read, it should seriously push you to read that whole series which culminates with Asher’s story and this particular point where Lucky meets Asher.
I’m going to end this with saying that if you’re like me and have waited for this book with bated breath, you will not be disappointed in the slightest. Don’t Kiss The Bride really is everything that you could’ve wished for, and more.
