Series: Billionaires and Bridesmaids #4
Greer has always been there for Asher, but she wishes that she could break through her shyness and show how much she truly loves him. But after a steamy, mindless fling at Hunter and Gretchen’s engagement party, Greer finds herself tossed aside and forced to admit that you can’t love someone who doesn’t acknowledge you exist. It’s a shame that he got her pregnant. After his fiancée betrayed him and tanked his business in one fell swoop, Asher has spent his time trying to rebuild his wealth and forget the past. But he doesn’t understand why Greer blew him off after their night together-until he catches a glimpse of her belly. Now Asher is willing to do whatever it takes to convince Greer that she belongs with him. And he’s very skilled at the art of persuasion.
I love this series and i love that Gretchen has sooo many people in her wedding situation that gives us so much more to read about. In this fourth installment to the series, we get to see not what happens with a Bridesmaid, but with her wedding planner – and of course as it relates – to a groomsman.
Greer isn’t your typical bombshell, but knowing her last name makes you realize that there’s this exotic quality to her and what should also lead into an interesting backstory. Her father is Dutch, and the owner of a Playboy esque magazine and her mother is Indian, and after leaving her father, became a porn star. So not necessarily the best family life, but one that makes her into such a strong woman, since she was sent to live with her father, a man who really had no interest in having a child.
So fast forward to now when Greer is planning her good friend’s wedding, and as things work out, Asher, a guy she’s known since college and about the same time as meeting Gretchen, he’s in the wedding party as well, and she’s been holding this secret crush for him for years. It’s not that he’s single that she makes her move and that means becoming something that she’s not in order to get his attention.
Does it work? Yes
In the way she hoped – no
So we see her story take a complicated path. Not only does she lure Asher in, but she’s entirely disappointed with him and even disgusted. She takes the opportunity to flee NYC and head out to Vegas to help her father get an award, and while this is all happening, she learns that she’s pregnant. With Asher’s child, and things couldn’t be any worse if they tried.
The journey that this story takes us on is one that’s kind of interesting. We see how Asher and Greer interact- knowing that she hates him with a passion and he’s come to his senses and realizes that she’s the one that he wants in his life. It’s not an easy battle for either of them to wage, and i think that the path that we take to get them together, and then to see them fall apart is a real one. It’s not flowers and butterflies and i think that’s what this story needed.
On top of that story, we get the one of Greer’s father staging a wedding at the request of Asher, with the bride still to be determined. In comparison to Hugh Hefner of Playboy notoriety, her father as 3 girlfriends – a set of identical triplets, and it’s to be one of these girls that will be his bride. It’s nice to see how this bit of the story plays out as well.
So, roller coasters, lots of romance and non romance, and quite a bit of love and hate. Not super steamy by any means aside from a few scenes here and there, but the story itself carries us through nicely so i don’t mind. The question that arises next is who will be the next one to be featured – i can’t wait to read on in this series. Happy Tuesday all!!!
