The Player (The Wedding Pact #2) by Denise Grover Swank
Book two in The Wedding Pact series.
Divorce attorney Blair Hansen is convinced that marriage should be based on practicality, not passion. But as her own wedding approaches, she finds herself remembering her law school boyfriend, the only man she's ever loved, and regretting what might have been. Then a twist of fate lands Garrett back in her life, and the man who loomed large in her past is suddenly casting a shadow over her wedding, making her question everything. To complicate matters further, the job she loves is in peril, and she can feel the ‘perfect’ life she’s fashioned for herself start to crumble under her feet. Could everything she's believed about life and love be wrong?
Garrett Lowry is a divorce attorney who's ready to settle down. The problem is that he can’t find a woman who suits him nearly as well as the one he loved and lost. He broke her heart by playing the field after their break up—something he’s always regretted. But after months of pining for Blair, Garrett stumbles across her in a freak coincidence—and then destiny keeps throwing them together, the coincidences becoming ever more unlikely. He’s convinced it's a sign they should give their love a second chance, but Blair is engaged to another man—a man who is absolutely wrong for her.
Can Garrett convince Blair that a player once isn’t a player forever, and that happy endings aren’t just for dreamers?Expected publication: June 2nd 2015 by DGS

When reading The Player, I expected a little bit more of the player aspect but clearly that term was wrongfully use to describe Garrett Lowery. Yes he had some rough patches and didn't really have any emotional ties to anyone he was with EXCEPT for Blair Myers . . . the love of his life.
Blair Hansen likes to plan things out, be practical, she spent her whole career building up to make partners at her firm but there's a rumor stirring that because of Blair's presentation of herself that might diminished her chances of getting promoted. Her straight-cut, don't mess around with me attitude might need to be soften up a bit, but can Blair soften up her overall personality?
Blair is set to get married over the weekend, she said she's prepare to do this but yet her heart has no flutters toward the man she is currently engaged with. So what makes her heart flutters? Garrett Lowery, her ex from the past and the one who broke her heart.
Is there such thing as Second Chances . . .
Both Garrett and Blair can't deny that there's still chemistry between them but Blair is determine to stay as far away from him as possible even when Garrett is suddenly put into her wedding that she really had no part in it.
I'm torn between hating or annoyed by the future mother in law, her little kitty bank certainly gains at least 20 bucks within a 10 minutes conversations. Seriously it was funny that she lugged around a little kitty bank but again I really didn't like the mother-in-law because she's annoying! One of my favorite scene was the "Hard Lemonade" Trust me you'll know what I'm talking about when you get to it.
I always figure Blair had a fun side to her, but it really didn't show until almost the very end when she decides to take a gamble and goes with Garrett after a huge fall out happens at the wedding reception. trust me you'll never believe where Garrett took her and where it leads . . .
Garrett is literally put through the ringer, just when he thinks things are going his way something always get in his way hence his cousin who I call a GREAT GIANT SNAKE!
So now you're wondering . . . will Blair and Garrett get "back" together or will Blair say "I Do" with her Snake of a fiance?
