It Takes Two by Jenny Holiday is the second installment in the Bridesmaids Behaving Badly Novel series. I read this book before reading the first one but don’t think it really matters. It actually motivated me to read the first book because I loved it so much!
This book is funny, sexy and just plain good! Wendy Liu is a bridesmaid again, this time for her best friend Jane’s wedding. Wendy and Jane met as children and became friends immediately. They have much in common, and have been inseparable since the beginning of their friendship. This makes the nuptials between Jane and Cameron difficult for Wendy. She questions their compatibility, not because they are not good together, but because Wendy doesn’t want to lose her best friend.
Noah Denning is Jane’s brother and Wendy’s nemesis. He is several years older and has been a huge support system in both girls’ lives. He also broke Wendy’s heart in high school. As a result, Wendy has avoided him any time he has returned home. Unfortunately, she can’t avoid him for the wedding.
Wendy and Noah have a connection. They are both successful lawyers and avid runners. Their relationship revolves around “one upping” the other and witty banter that reveals an amazing attraction, but they are both still holding back.
This book is a super fun summer read. It’s pacing is perfect. I’m loving the rom-com genre right now thanks to Jenny Holiday and this series. Anyone looking for sexy, romantic and funny needs to pick up this series!
