A reluctant groom and an impulsive one… Jason Manning is content with his life as a bachelor, a slob and a sports fan. Then a precocious teen named Carrie Weston decides to play matchmaker, introducing him to her mother. To his relief, Charlotte is as uninterested in marriage as he is. But Jason's feelings start to change once he gets to know his Bride on the Loose. James Wilkens was almost a Manning groom—because he almost married one of the Manning sisters. With that broken engagement behind him, he spends New Year's Eve in Las Vegas…where he meets Summer Lawton. She's just suffered a painful betrayal, and James promises her that in a year she'll be over it. To prove his point, he makes a date to meet her in Vegas Same Time, Next Year. Except it turns out to be more than a date—it's a wedding!
I enjoyed the first story in the book because Jason had always been on the outside fringes of the family and the only single person left. It was great to see him find someone to share his life with and make him challenge himself. Carrie Weston is the one who decides that she is going to match her mother with Jason. It was a great story to watch Charlotte and Jason build their lives together. The second story in the book was the mystery that was quickly answered because it was about James Wilkens who is not a member for Manning family but was once engaged to one of the Manning sisters. I loved reading about how James saved Summer from a horrible New Years Eve and gave her hope for going forward because he had already gone through his horrible breakup. The friendship that comes from this bond is amazing and lasts until the next year when they meet up again. It was great to get the story to come whole circle around to I hope that you check out this book and all the others in this great series. I really enjoyed these great stories as well as the ones in the other books in this series and I hope that you do too!!
