The Bridesmaid's Checklist: Laura's Wedding by K.T. Castle ❤️ Book Tour & Gift Card & More GIVEAWAY ❤️ (New Adult Romance)


Kassandra is a single, independent woman who prides herself on her own success. But when she’s asked by her best friend Laura to be the Maid of Honor in her wedding, Kassandra finds herself questioning her lifestyle. Helping Laura plan the wedding is no problem—she’s done it before for all their other friends. The first time was a blast, the second super fun, but doing it without receiving any help from the rest of the girls gets old really fast.

The whole event kicks off with the worst kind of surprise when Kassandra discovers who her friend's fiancé really is, and she's torn between supporting Laura's future happiness and hiding the deeply buried, intimate past she shares with the groom-to-be. Struggling to be the bigger person and do all the hard work on her own, Kassandra finds surprising comfort in Josh, the best man in the wedding and someone she's been avoiding for years. He's charming, thoughtful, handsome, and the worst kind of womanizer, but she just can't seem to stay away. All the while, Kassandra can't help wondering if the wedding could be any more cliché—until she finds unexpected ways to change things up a bit.


From Chapter 4

This can’t be happening.

The person sitting at our table was definitely someone I knew. Someone I actually had been avoiding for quite some time.

“Well, well. Good morning, babe,” the beautiful blond said to me.

I knew this guy. I’d constantly met him at bars and pubs around the city. He was always well accompanied by attractive ladies, but that didn’t stop him from hitting on me. Persistently, he’d tried for the past couple years to get my number and into my panties.

This beautiful man and I had a history…well, not really. We had a history of not having a history. He was an artfully known womanizer in the circles we frequented. Knowing exactly what I’d be getting myself into if I ever decided to tap that drop-dead gorgeous body of his, I had no choice but to reject him over and over again.

One drunken night I almost caved in.

Laura couldn't be marrying this man.

“Oh, God. Not you. You’re a man whore!”

He stood as soon as the statement escaped my lips. He didn’t look offended. I guess he was used to my rejections by now. “Nice to see you, too,” the handsome man said. “I like knowing that you miss me.”

“Miss you? You wish! I can’t believe you’re marrying my best friend.” And I really didn’t.

“No offense, babe, but I’m not the one marrying Laura. I’m Ed’s friend. Name’s Josh, remember?”

Oh, right. Josh. For a moment there, I thought I had to talk Laura into canceling the wedding.

Love is found everywhere, regardless if it comes from a nice person, an ass — mundane or even vampire. When she's not busy with work, in front of a computer placing many thoughts in order, she makes her best to be creative or relax with a good book and a snack. Some of her favorite characters are Sookie, Rule and Shaw, Bella, Edward, Clary, Jace, Wrath, Hollywood, Blaire, Woods, Ethan, the Sleeping Beauty, and Ariel.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to visit and read the excerpt, Sandra. I wanted to share this chapter since it's the first scene with the main characters. Later on in this same chapter, the most important secondary chapters appear for the first time together. It's the first time that the bride and groom get together with the best man and the maid of honor. And what a surprise it is!
      Hope you read the book and share with me your experience while reading it :)

    1. I had a really good time coming out with ideas for the plot, I actually interviewed some of my friends and asked them what they would expect from a bridesmaid's romance book... then I tried to give it a bit of a twist.
      Hopefully you'll read it and let me know what you think about the story.
      Regards, Shannon :)

    1. My best friend simply told me "It is always expected from the Maid of Honor to end up sleeping with the best man, but what about if she had a thing with the groom as well"... so having that in mind I decided to have them have a past relationship that no one knew off ;)
      I wanted the story to be fun and easy to read. I'd love to hear your thoughts about it.
      Thanks,

    1. Thanks for your best wishes, Jerry. I really appreciate them.
      There's more stories to come from the Bridesmaid's Checklist, Kassandra has four best friends, and Laura is only one of them. I'm sure I'll keep writing these and many other stories, and the best part is that there's awesome people like you that enjoy them.
      Thanks!
