Book Review: The Subsitution

The Substitute (The Wedding Pact #1) by Denise Grover Swank

The Substitute (The Wedding Pact #1)The first book in a humorous contemporary romance from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Denise Grover Swank.

Megan Vandemeer meant to tell her parents about her broken engagement, but a month and a half later she finds herself boarding a plane home to her wedding. Having stretched avoidance to its limits, it's time to come clean--a terrifying prospect since her mother is sure to blame her rather than her cheating, emotionally frigid ex. A couple of drinks and two Dramamine later, Megan finds herself spilling her sob story to the tall, dark, and handsome stranger in the seat next to her.

With only one week left to save his business, Josh McMillan boards a plane to Kansas City in a last-ditch effort, leaving the details to chance. An unexpected answer is delivered in the form of the beautiful brunette beside him. Though she’s completely loopy, her honesty, openness, and humor charm him. So when she passes out before landing, he helps her off the plane--a good deed that leads to a colossal misunderstanding. Her parents assume he’s her fiancĂ©. In a twist of fate, the mix-up might help Josh save his business, so he plays along, figuring he can help Megan too. All he has to do is stage a public break up convincing enough to appease her mother.

Josh is only supposed to be a substitute groom, but the more time he and Megan spend together, the more their pretend engagement starts to feel real…and the less they want to break it off. Can a relationship that began as a farce turn into happily ever after?

Paperback, 350 pages
Expected publication: January 21st 2015 by DGS 

Facing the inevitable Megan Vandemeer must fly back home for her wedding . . . A wedding that should hve been called off long ago. She should have just called it off but she didn't now she'll have to face the music.

Josh McMillan is at the brink of losing his family company, he's on his way back Kansas city to make one more attempt to save the business

What he didn't expect was to sit next to a women that has her own problems that he felt that he needs to comply to help her in any way he can. However helping Megan prove to be a lot more than he bargain for.

I give this an 4.5 Cat Tails Up, I love the instant love connection and the fact that both Megan and Josh has no idea in what to expect upon arriving to the wedding day.

MEOW . . . MEOW . . . MEOW
Wow talk about a humorous romance, Josh had no idea what was in store for him and Megan is about to give him the ride of his life.

Megan feels a little bad that she dragged poor Josh into her problems but sometimes fate works in strange way where she might just need him for everything as well the same in reverse. When Josh meets Megan's family at the airport he's just been offer the biggest opportunity to save his business but how to get what he's want and help Megan get through a wedding that going to happen no matter what.

But during the first twenty-four hours changes everything between them.

What I like about The Substitute was the fact that two random people both having their own set of issues that led to them to take one risk with each other.

I love Josh, he was the most sincere book character I have ever read he had his ups and downs but meeting Megan was probably the best thing that could ever happen to him.

Megan should be glad that she dumped Jay because if she had kept her relationship with Jay, then she would have never ended up sitting next to Josh. Also Megan need to grow a backbone! UGH it bothered me that she was such a pushover and her mom basically destroyed everything for her like switching out the wedding dress.

That was a wrong move mother.

Blair is one tough chick, I think she often lets her attorney side overtake her softer side that she has with her friends but even after all the digging around Josh still wouldn't turn away from Megan. But im glad that she saw past what Josh "profile" and accepted that he truly does love Megan. 

It was sad to hear about Megan's mother dark story that made her who she became the perfect knickers. Grams really did the right thing by telling Megan about it and why she never saw her aunt heather again after that one week but it was also very sad that Megan's mother didn't talk to her sister ever again after what had happen but now Megan mother will always live with the guilty of not having one more chance with her to talk. 

Megan and Josh pulled through the wedding, and they couldn't be more happier to be married to one another and being Mrs and Mr. McMillan. 

The one other thing that made it special to the characters is the spot out at the campground, being cast under a skylight of stars. That is the most perfect place to go to when trying to get away from all the drama. I love it when Josh said "our spot" toward the end where everything was jut about to get destroyed and Megan heart must have skipped a beat when he said that.
