Genre: Contemporary Romance
Actual Rating: 5 stars
Save the Date is the perfect summer read! Readers who enjoy travel, fake relationships, second chance romances, and books that revolve around weddings are not going to want to miss Monica's latest novel! I savored this novel- like a fine macaroon! I read it in one sitting as well. It's a lighthearted read with an excellent cast of characters and an engaging story line. Monica Murphy can write a diverse number of books- romances, young adult thrillers, and YA romances which is why I am always coming back for more! Save the Date falls in the romance category (maybe even chick lit) and has everything it needs: a cute relationship (brother's best friend from middle school, and second chances), character growth (Alex finally realized what LOVE is about), and a little bit of sexy times (not too much, just enough to see that the two were compatible). It's an all around wonderful book.
Caroline and Alex were very sweet together. It was quickly apparent that their feelings for one another never fully went away even though they haven't seen each other since they were kids. Their first meeting at the coffee shop proves this and the spark between them FLEW off the pages. Gosh, I smiled so much. There may have been a few things standing in their way at that time (namely, his fiance Tiffany *gasp*) but the hurdles were overcome (even if a little drama played out). Don't worry! This is NOT a love triangle and there is NO cheating(view spoiler). But there is a bit of drama that needs to be overcome prior to the HEA.
Monica Murphy also adds a bit of a fake relationship trope into this one. Alex needs a woman on his arm in order to secure a deal in Paris for a hotel his family wants to buy and his old pal Caroline is happy to accompany him. Too bad one fashion icon see's through the facade and causes a little trouble of her own... You want to know what happens you will have to read Save the Date to find out!
Overall, I adored this book to pieces! As I mentioned, Monica Murphy can write in just about any genre and still engage all her readers. This is not different with Save the Date and I enthusiastically read this one with a BIG smile on my face. I highly recommend it!

Monica Murphy is the New York Times, USA Today and #1 international bestselling author of the One Week Girlfriend series, the Billionaire Bachelors and The Rules series. Her books have been translated in almost a dozen languages and has sold over one million copies worldwide. She is both self-published and published by Random House/Bantam and Harper Collins/Avon. She writes new adult, young adult and contemporary romance.
She is a wife and a mother of three who lives in central California on fourteen acres in the middle of nowhere along with their one dog and too many cats. A self-confessed workaholic, when she's not writing, she's reading or hanging out with her husband and kids. She's a firm believer in happy endings, though she will admit to putting her characters through angst-filled moments before they finally get that hard won HEA.
