March 26th

Planning a wedding should have been easy, especially with Aunt Emmie and Harris’s stepmom, Natalie, to help. Those two could rule the world from their phones, so I thought letting them help plan our wedding would make everything effortless.

I was wrong.

I wanted a small and intimate ceremony, but they wanted it to be huge, something that would overshadow every other celebrity wedding that had come before it. Because I felt like I owed it to my mom, I agreed, but now things were spiraling out of control. Details like the cake, the first song at the reception, and even picking a dress—gods, the dress—were all things that gave me a panic attack.

My wedding wasn’t mine anymore.

It was a freaking circus.

It's funny how a wedding, that should be one of the happiest times of your life, ends up being one of the most stressful. 

A wedding by itself is enough of a stressor, but add in the unrealistic expectations of Lucy and Harris's extended family and the guilt that Lucy and her mother feel around the exposure of her darkest secret and it gets catapulted into unbearable. And unbearable to Lucy means bad things could happen.

I liked that Harris takes control of the situation once he finds out what is going on and takes the necessary steps to correct it. I also love that Lucy's dad steps up and reels his wife in before she permanently damaged her relationship with her daughter. 

I'm not usually a fan of the 'wedding wrap-up' book, but I think there was enough other stuff going on in this one that it saves it from being a true 'wrap-up'. 

Case in point, what the hell is going on with Kin and Jace?
