“Listen, chaste kisses are fine for what they are. Quick exchanges of affection. An innocent way to tell somebody they mean something. When you wanna show a woman that she’s what’s lighting the fire in your gut, though… quick and innocent pecks just don’t do the trick. Nah, a man goes dark and dirty for that kind of lesson. He wants his woman wet and hot. And he wants her that way everywhere. Her mouth. Her core. Everywhere.”
When I found out that Wed by Wednesday was going to be Orla and Jethro's story, I was beyond excited! I get such a kick of Orla, she reminds me of Janet Evanovich's Grandma Mazur in her Stephanie Plum series and if you know Grandma Mazur, then you know that Orla is quite the character. I love her in the present, I love her in her past, and I just absolutely loved this book - it was fan-flipping-tastic!
I'm sure you already know how I feel about Orla and I didn't know it was possible, but I'm even more fond of her than I was before. She's not as rascally in her youth as she is now, but that doesn't mean she's some weak, delicate flower, oh, no. Ms. Orla is sweet and innocent, but she's sassy and feisty and she's not going to let Jethro McKinnon get away with being a grouchy, growly grump. Yep, Orla puts him in his place when he needs it and keeps him on his toes. Orla is so wonderful, I just loved, loved, loved her and I know you will too!
Well, I'll be - Jethro might just give the McKinnon women's men a run for their money. He was certainly something back in the day. Sure, he's a rough and tough guy who tells it how it is and is surlier than a bear with a thorn in his paw, but my, oh my, when Jethro turns on that charm - the man is downright irresistible! He's sexy, possessive, dirty, and a little mischievous. Jethro won't always have good moments, there'll be times when you want to shake him, but then there are the times when he's so open and honest and sweet that he'll just grab you by the heart, melt you, and never let go. I loved Jethro just as much as Orla and I can't wait to visit these two again.
Wed by Wednesday is extremely sexy, so funny, and a major hoot to read. It made laugh out loud a lot, it made me gasp and sigh and tear up with the good kind of tears. It was utterly amazing and heartwarming and it's without a doubt one of my favorites in the series.
Wed by Wednesday can be read as a standalone, it's told from Orla and Jethro's POV, and these two have been living their happily-ever-after ever since they met!

“How…how did you know that?” Orla stuttered, her eyebrows furrowing with consternation. Just what she needed in her life - an intelligent jackass.
“That fancy hair. Your pretty dress. Those shiny shoes that, if you look, you can see your reflection lookin’ back. And those heels of yours aren’t scuffed, so you’ve been riding, not walking. Your clothes are too wrinkled to be from Nashville or Knoxville, so you’re just rumpled enough to have gotten off the bus from Atlanta,” he surmised, with a know-it-all grin as her cheeks reddened with embarrassment. “Oh, yeah! You’re city bred from the top of your head to the tip of your toes. And a fussy little lady like you ain’t gonna find what she’s lookin’ for in Paradise.”
“Actually, son…” Jethro’s mother began to hedge, biting her lip as she turned to look up into her son’s face. “She has found just what she’s been missing.”
Biting her lip, Orla winced as Jethro frowned at his step mother. The woman, however, didn’t look overly worried about her son’s imminent reaction and she wondered if things would work out alright after all.
Jethro frowned. “Mother McKinnon, we don’t have time for…”
“Oh, just rip the bandage off, Lydia,” Nellie ordered, interrupting Jethro as she bustled over to where they all stood together. “Jethro, meet your future wife,” the waitress decreed, flapping a hand at where Orla stood, nose to chest with him. “Take a minute and let this settle in your bones, boy. Your much beloved step-momma done went and ordered you up a bride for hire.”
WANNA STALK THESE TWO....
