Falling for the Groomsman by Diane Alberts
June 9, 2014


A sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…

She’s the one that got away. He’s the one she can’t forget.

Photojournalist Christine Forsythe is ready to tackle her naughty little to-do list, and who better to tap for the job than a hot groomsman? But when she crashes into her best friend’s older brother, Christine realizes her list needs updating. And fast. Tyler Dresco took her virginity during the best night of her life, then bolted. Now that they’re trapped together at a destination wedding, she’s going to get her revenge.

Tyler has never forgiven himself for how completely he lost control all those years ago. Being in Christine’s arms had felt right…until he realized what he’d taken from her in the hallway of a cheap motel. And oh, how she’s making him pay for it now. The insatiable heat between them has only grown stronger, but every time things heat up, Christine walks away.

With every encounter, things go a little bit further until Christine’s caught in her own trap of seduction. And before their time’s up, Tyler’s not the only one wanting more…

Christine has always been in love with her best friend’s brother since she can remember, but she has always kept that secret to herself, even from Kady. One night so many years ago during a breakdown, she gave herself up to Tyler. It was a night Christine will never forget. But one that Tyler will live to regret every day after. She has tried her best to move on with her life, but her walls have been put up. A part of her heart will always belong to Tyler. Although she has not seen him in years, she has always tried to keep updates from Kady.

Tyler has been away from his family, living his life as a doctor helping the less fortunate in other countries.  He has regretted what he did to Christine all those years ago since he had no right to take advantage of her then. Most especially, he regrets walking away from her and leaving her more vulnerable than when her first found her. As much as he would like to continue to avoid her, Christine and Tyler are forced together when his sister Kady has a destination wedding they both have no choice but to attend.

When she sees Tyler, his presence both shocks her and frustrates her at the same time. He has grown in to a fine looking specimen, but yet, she still can’t let go of what him did. The way he looks at her, it’s as if he wants a piece of her. The girls have always gotten on her case about not having fun and that she should escape her world of books and experience life. Christine’s original intentional was to use this trip to let loose a little and tackle a list that she has, but seeing Tyler there, makes her motives change a little. Maybe she can use this time to get some kind of revenge on him. How would it feel to want something so bad to only have it vanish before your eyes?

Tyler plans to do everything he can to make it up to Christine. He wants to get to know her again, get close to her. They felt right together then, how would it feel if they get together now? Just by the way they look at each other, even from across the room, you can see the attraction they have towards one another, or even when they’re near each other. There is definitely some physical connection between the two of them.

Christine gets the brilliant idea to seduce Tyler, to use him to check off part of his list. That will definitely pay him back for walking out on her. But Tyler is very persistent in what he wants. If he wants, he will get it and he wants Christine and he will stop at nothing until he gets her. Every time he advances with her and gets her right where he wants her, she ends up taking two steps back, making him wonder what her motives are. When he steps his game up and gets more aggressive with his pursuits, she can’t help but get caught in the game she’s playing. I mean how can she not? Tyler is a hot doctor who wants her and will stop at nothing until he gets her, and damn he has a dirty mouth. She’s slowly falling under his spell again and if she keeps at this game she keeps playing, her heart might end up right where it was all those years ago.

Will Tyler be able to bring down the walls that Christine has put up? Will Christine be able to go through with her plan and seduce Tyler for revenge? Will she get caught up in her plan? Will Tyler get tired of playing games with her and leave, again? Will Christine only end up hurting herself in the end?

Diane does a great job with this hot and spicy novella. She got me hooked from the very beginning that I was able to finish very quickly. The connection between Christine and Tyler can be felt while reading the book and hot damn is he a hottie. I love how she adds the stories of the other friends in there making me want to find out their stories as well. Great job Diane.
