Chad has pined for Raudel since high school, but he’s been avoiding him ever since Raudel caught him in an excruciatingly embarrassing moment. So when Chad’s sister invites Raudel to join them for her weeklong prewedding celebration at Lake Tahoe, Chad is horrified. He brainstorms his escape, until reality crashes down and he discovers he’s bunking with Raudel in the last available bedroom at the lakeside retreat.
Thrown together by the bridal party from hell, Chad and Raudel unite and attempt to survive Chad’s bridezilla sister, a crazy grandmother, an overbearing mother, and the search for the perfect chocolate fountain. Despite the little time they have together, they reconnect when unexpected discoveries come to light. Love may find a way amid the nuptial chaos, but it’s unlikely to be exactly the way they expect.
Honeymoon Their Way by Morticia Knight is a contemporary second-chance romance. Chad has been avoiding his crush Raudel since he embarrassed himself in front of him in high school. Despite having full knowledge of this Chad’s sister, Lindsey, arranged for both Chad and Raudel to not only be in her wedding party but also to share a room at her destination wedding.
Honeymoon Their Way was a cute, if unrealistic romance. I liked Raudel a lot. I thought he was a charismatic man, and I had no trouble understanding Chad’s attraction to him. But I can’t say the same about any of the other characters. Chad read as whiny and immature, Lindsey was terrible in a way that only a bride can be excused for. In addition, the progression of Chad and Raudel’s relationship was too fast for me to properly suspend my disbelief.
All that being said, Knight has a captivating writing style that I would love to read more of.
