SHE KNOWS BETTER THAN TO SAY “I DO”
After a humiliating end to her engagement, investment banker Sidney Sinclair is done with commitment-phobic men. But when her sister winds up engaged after a whirlwind courtship, she’s thrown in to close contact with exactly the kind of sexy playboy she wants to avoid—the gorgeous best man. She’s stuck with him, for better or worse, until her sister walks down the aisle, but that doesn’t mean she has to give in to his smooth advances, no matter how tempting they are…
BUT HE MAKES IT HARD TO SAY “I DON’T”
Special Agent Vaughn Roberts always gets his man on the job and his woman in bed. So Sidney’s refusal to fall for his charms only makes him more determined to win over the cool and confident redhead. Only what starts out as a battle of wills ends up as a serious play for her heart. Because the one woman who refuses to be caught may be the only one Vaughn can’t live without…
It happend one wedding is the fifth book in the FBI/US Attorney series by Julie James. This book tells the story of Sidney and Vaughn, an FBI agent.

Let me just say how different this book was from the other books in the series. It had a serious tone but yet at times I find myself laughing with the characters. I guess that's Julie Jame's writting.

After finding out that her fiance was cheating on her, Sydney left New York and returned back to Chicago. But having spent three years of her life in vain, she knows that if she wants to start her own family she must hurry. That means finding someone who desires the same things as her and not just someone who wants to have a good time. So when Vaughn hits on her, Sydney has no problem letting him down. She knows what's she's looking for and it's not his type.

Vaughn can't believe he's been rejected. After Sydney "profiled" him as a womanizer, which he knows he is, Vaughn begins to doubt himself. Especially when it turns out that Sydney's sister, Isabelle will be marrying Vaughn's brother, Simon. Little do they know that their siblings plan to keep them too distracted with the wedding...

But both Sydney and Vaughn realise that they can't fight the attaction that burns between them. So, while Sydney's looking for her Mr. Right, why not have some fun with Mr. Wrong.

This book was just sooo hot. When you put Sydney and Vaughn together in a room, the result you get is fireworks. Sydney was a troubled character. Having wasted three years of her life, she believes `it's time for a big change but she's still looking for what she thought she had. I felt that she always withheld a part of her, afraid that history will repeat itself and she never gave anyone else a chance. Especially Vaughn. She justified their relationship by saying that they're just two adults having fun and she never took that relationship seriously. I was really happy when they both realised that their relationship was more than they thought. I could see that they were both afraid for the future but they tried to make it work and I loved that.

I also loved the way Vaughn was jealous everytime Sydney went on a date looking for Mr Right. But in the end, all it took to make Sydney his, was his honesty.

It happened one wedding was a fun, loving story filled with romance, suspense many hot scenes and an alpha/ humorous hero.

Highly recommended!
