Cute and Sweet Romance

The plot of a stranger asking someone to be their fake girlfriend and attend a wedding is an ancient trope, adored and adapted by many writers of varying genres. For this reason, my initial impression while reading The Wedding Date was that it resembled a story you might read on a fanfiction website. Its a concept that has been done by so many people, making it feel like you might have already read the book before even if you haven't.

However, as the story continued, and the main plot moved from the wedding shenanigans to the relationship development, the narrative shifted from fanfiction-like to genuine. The chemistry between the two characters was absolutely adorable and it felt realistic, though their lack of proper communication was very frustrating for me personally. There were certain moments where I wanted to fling my book across the room in annoyance. However, the cuteness always brought me back on board when I continued reading.

However, despite the chemistry between the two leads, I felt like a different aspect of the story grabbed my attention the most. Alexa's program for helping the youth of the Berkeley area immediately grabbed my attention and touched my heart. Furthermore, the connection between the project and Alexa's sister Olivia only furthered my admiration for this aspect of the story. I loved it so much, in fact, that I almost wish it had been the focus of the story, with Alexa and Drew's relationship serving as a side-plot. It makes me excited to see what type of stories the author will publish in the future.

Overall, I would rate the entire book 3.5 stars!
