Can’t Wait Wednesday – THE PLUS ONE by Mazey Eddings
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about. It is a meme that I have loved participating in since I first started blogging, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

Apologies for my absence since this time last week. I had a huge work deadline that left me with no time or energy to blog, but I made my deadline and then took a day to recover so now I’m back. My selection for this week is THE PLUS ONE by Mazey Eddings, the third book in Eddings’ A Brush with Love series. I loved the first two books in the series and this one sounds just as entertaining as those two were.
THE PLUS ONE by Mazey Eddings
Publication Date: April 4, 2023 by Berkley Books
What starts out as a fake wedding date turns into something these childhood enemies never expected in the next sparkling romantic comedy by Mazey Eddings.
Some facts are indisputable. The sun rises in the east, sets in the west. Gravity exits. Indira doesn’t like Jude. Jude doesn’t like Indira. But what happens when these childhood enemies find the only thing they can rely on is each other?
On paper, Indira has everything together. An amazing job, a boyfriend, and a car. What more could a late twenty-something ask for? But when she walks in on her boyfriend in an amorous embrace with a stranger, that perfect on paper image goes up in flames.
Jude has nothing together. A doctor that’s spent the last three years traveling the world to treat emergencies and humanitarian crises, a quick trip home for his best friend’s wedding has him struggling to readjust.
Thrust into an elaborate (and ridiculously drawn out) wedding event that’s stressing Jude beyond belief and has Indira seeing her ex and his new girlfriend far more frequently than any human should endure, the duo strike a bargain to be each other’s fake dates to this wedding from hell. The only problem is, their forced proximity and fake displays of affection are starting to feel a bit… real, and both are left grappling with the idea that a situation that couldn’t be worse, is made a little better with the other around.

This sounds like it’s the ideal read for the dire times we’re coping with just now!! I hope it proves to be as enjoyable as it sounds, Suzanne:).
Welcome back! I think this sounds cute, maybe not the most original plot, but with great characters it could work😁

Thanks, I hope so too. 🙂
I think Indira’s book will be great and I am excited for it too. Did you see that Eddings wrote a YA? I am curious about that one too.
