When Emma Anderson arrived at San Francisco International Airport, she regretted accepting the distinction of being the maid of honor to Gaby’s—her childhood friend—wedding. It had been years since the last time she set foot in Menlo Park, where her parents had been killed. The rug where she had been shoving her feelings since that day looked bumpier than a camel’s hump. Who could blame her; if she hadn’t been selfish they’d still be around. Ever since that fateful day, Emma has been perfecting the knack of Getting By.

Cade’s wedding in Menlo Park—a city close to San Francisco—might be the perfect place for Jake Knight to shake the memories of his ex, Emma Anderson for good. Single, available women galore for an entire week was the perfect medication, one he intended to take three times a day for an entire week to return to his player days. It was a plan the former spy thought flawless until he came face to face with the maid of honor. Jake’s perfect retreat turns into a flight, fight or hide week of celebrations.

My Thoughts:

I enjoyed this story. Both Emma and Jake has things they are hiding from that has gotten in between their relationship rather then talking it out they remained hidden. Slowly things from this past come out, at this point they can face their fears or run from them. I liked all the characters even Jakes meddling mother. I loved that there was more then one POV so I was able to understand the characters more. My only thing about this story is that I feel like its something I've read before and wished there was more to this book to make it truly unique. Other then that the story was well written and was an overall enjoyable story. 4 of 5 stars.
