Finding romance, one book at a time.

The Wedding Fling (Harlequin Blaze Series #734)

The Wedding Fling (Harlequin Blaze #734) - Meg  Maguire I like reading Harlequin romances because you know you're getting your HEA in 200 pages or less. Sometimes I just need to get to the chase without a lot of angsty build up. Normally that works for me but in The Wedding Fling, unfortunately, it didn't.Long story short - Leigh found out that her fiance is cheating on her. Instead of going through with the wedding, she takes off to Barbados, on her honeymoon. Leigh needs to clear her mind and figure out what she wants to do with her life. She meets Will, the island pilot. Will is trying to build his dream life on the island so that he can send for his father. In order to do that, Will needs cash - stat. So what does he do? He's approached by a tabloid to spy on Leigh and sell information. He decides to do it, thinking Leigh is a shallow, celebrity who doesn't deserve common courtesy or privacy. But when he meets her, he second guesses the deal he made because he realized, 'Hey. Celebrities are people too.'The Wedding Fling was an okay read. I liked the setting and the premise. I didn't like Will and Leigh. To me, they lacked personality, heat and spark. Leigh is a D list celebrity who, at 27 yrs old, is still being pushed around by her mother. It was hard for me to feel sorry for her because I could not understand why she lacked a spine. Even her explanation seemed weak. Will is an okay hero that, at times, was interesting. But to me, there was nothing about him that stood out to make me take notice.I didn't buy the falling in love part (even though it's mandatory that the h/h fall in love by the end of the book). I liked the idea of a fling after being hurt and humiliated. Just wished there was more of a spark between the two characters.
