Event planner Kate Sweet is famous for creating the perfect happily-ever-after moment for her clients’ dream weddings. So how is it that her best friend has roped her into planning a bestselling horror writer’s book launch extravaganza? But the second Kate meets—or rather, accidentally maims—the drop-dead-hot Drake Matthews, her well-ordered life quickly transforms into an absolute nightmare.
Drake Matthews is tired of the spotlight and tired of his reputation as the Knight of Nightmares. He’s really a nice guy! But he’s not prepared for Kate, a fearless agent of chaos in steel-tipped stilettos, or for that sweet sting of attraction he feels for her. She’s inspiring him to take his writing in a whole new direction—one that no one expects. Because now Kate and Drake are changing up the rules, and this plot twist might just surprise everyone . . . including themselves.
This book took my breath away. I love a good romance book, but it is rare that one keeps me this intrigued. From the very beginning, I couldn’t put this book down. Kate Sweet is the type of woman I aim to be. She is chasing her dream everyday and being the absolute best at it. No one can get her spirits down no matter how tough an event is. The Queen of Happily Ever After always has an Aww moment in every event she does. Now that she’s working on a horror book launch she has to shift gears and learn how to make the biggest and best spooky event ever! As someone who loves Halloween, I would be stoked to get to be involved in an event like Kate’s planning.
Drake Matthews is a dream. He is a horror writer, and he gives me butterflies. The chemistry between Kate and Drake leaps off of the page, and I could not read it fast enough. I have the biggest crush on Drake, and I wish I could read this book again for the first time. The ups and downs had me wrapped around every word. This was the first book I’ve read by Newton, and it definitely will not be the last. The way she writes her characters makes me feel like I’ve known them for my whole life. The dialogue is easy to fall in love with and hard to put down. It’s not very often that a romance book keeps me up at night, but this one stole my heart. Reading this book was my “Aww Moment”.
