The Paid Bridesmaid: A Novel Kindle Edition
From Sariah Wilson, the bestselling author of Roommaid, comes a captivating romantic comedy about what happens when a wedding party mixes business with romance.
Rachel Vinson is a bridesmaid for hire: part confidante, part wedding planner, and one hundred percent pretend BFF. Discretion guaranteed. Her next gig is a destination wedding—livestreamed and sponsored—for an Instagram influencer. That means a paradise of new contacts, which could be a boon to her already booming business. If Rachel can keep the very handsome and slightly too interested best man at bay, that is.
High-tech entrepreneur Camden Lewis must know: Who is this gorgeous, intelligent, and mysterious woman? Too good to be real. Convinced she’s a corporate spy out to tank his company, Camden’s not letting her out of his sight. But the constant surveillance is also opening his eyes to things about Rachel that he likes. If she’s a spy, she’s certainly the cutest one he’s ever seen.
As the week’s worth of wedding events march along, Rachel and Camden are learning almost everything there is to know about each other. Rachel’s made a career out of always a bridesmaid…but perhaps there’s a chance for her own trip down the aisle?
An Amazon Best Book of the Month: Romance
“Combining a fast-paced plot with a slow-burning romance, this is sure to give readers butterflies.” —Publishers Weekly

From the Publisher
At a wedding she’s supposed to be working, of course. And her job requires organization, a high capacity for calmness in the face of chaos, and, above all, discretion. Now is not the time to get warm and fuzzy feelings for the devastatingly dashing groomsman. The focus should be on the bride—a hugely popular Instagram influencer who is sharing every lovingly curated detail of her happily-ever-after with her followers.
Which means that if Rachel messes up, it’ll be broadcast for everyone to see.
But is it possible to be a perfect paid bridesmaid, wrangling an unruly mother of the bride, a week’s worth of elaborate wedding activities, and dozens of cranky peacocks, all while falling in love?
Dear readers, I suspect you know the answer to that question. And I hope you’ll enjoy this sweet romantic romp as much as I did. I know I’ll be quoting this one for years to come. (The peacocks are for AMBIENCE, Rachel!)

I feel Rachel, our MC, had no growth or arc, her role was simply to obsess over a man that she supposedly couldn't have, though the reason she couldn't have him was weak.
When she realised why she was an over achieving, over working perfectionist, we glossed straight over it and returned to obsessing over the man.
I know this is a Romantic Comedy, and rightly so the relationship should take the lead, but there was nothing else. In my opinion, a good rom com provides good side dishes to go along with the main meal, and this just didn't.
It was a cute slow burn, but there wasn't enough angst at the beginning. They started to banter and rip into each other and play with each other. But then we took a 160 and immediately became full force attraction and love. I just wanted more of them iritating each other.
It's been quite a while since I read a rom-com and I'm so glad I decided to go with this book. I had so much fun reading it, and the chemistry between Rachel and Camden was really good.
This starts with Rachel at her latest wedding where she's acting as best/oldest friend of the bride who is having a fully-paid-for-by-her-sponsors destination wedding in Hawaii. Only Rachel has only known Sadie for a few weeks and when she's introduced to the Groom's best friend and best man sparks fly between them. As much as she tries to keep things professional Rachel is finding it hard to resist Camden and it seems Camden is becoming more smitten with her every day.
I was pulled into this from the start. That initial meeting between Rachel and Camden! Sparks were flying between them then and then it just intensified with every encounter. I absolutely loved it! I would have happily read this in one sitting if not for that thing called work.
I loved the characters although I think Camden wins slightly over Rachel for my favourite. Camden was very much like an open book about his feelings and what he wanted to happen between them. Rachel tried to fight it with everything she had - for work reasons - but I have no idea how she resisted him! I did love their journey while taking part in the crazy wedding events for the social media darling that was Sadie. I even grew to like her, too.
If every book by this author is like this, then give me more!
