    While technically second in a series they're only barely related and it actually lives up to a Stand Alone Romantic Comedy There's a single reference to the couple in the first but it's not intrusive or importantAnd I'm happy to say that this was as good as the first though in its own way It doesn't have any stand out tropes or patterns to crib from Yeah they knew each other as kids but there was never anything there until they discover each other in the present And I really liked seeing them discover each otherAs in the first this is a single PoV story and it works well as such I liked Hadley and that she has fallen into a job she kind of loves even as she knows it isn't exactly what she thought she'd be doing and it doesn't use any of the degree she has student loans for I actually liked that about her and how she's strong enough to go with that even though it means several steps backward in the expected path like moving back in with her mom I liked even that Cahill chose not to tie her character arc into finding some magical way to use that degree though there was ample opportunity once she tied into Will who fixes houses and wants to make a go of flipping them professionallyAnd I liked Will too He's struggling with kind of the same growth arc as he's working a job that he hates because it's what's expected of him while he works fervently on the side for the thing he actually cares about And I really loved his appreciation for Hadley and that he cared about her even before they were a thing The two of them together were really sweetTheir relationship was a pretty consistent growth with only a minor misapprehension near the end to spice things up I liked that their friends intervened before it became dire and that the intervention was mostly just giving them the opportunity to talk That's lovely the I consider it actuallyAnyway this is another strong five stars by the author and I'm increasingly distressed that she seems to have disappeared after 2017A note about production It was present in the first book but I forgot to call it out It's stronger in this one though Cahill needs a better any? copy editor She's a talented writer but there are lots of errors in the text that are pretty much all simple mistypings—usually to form a different word Like startling becoming starting Or form becoming for It's too bad because sometimes it obscures how good she is that the words are wrongA note about Steamy This has two explicit sex scenes though the second is really short and the first isn't that long either putting this at the low end of my steam tolerance Again it was just enough to show how the physical intimacy matches the emotional trajectory and a pretty good choice I think

    I love all things Ellie Cahill and I couldn’t resist this synopsis Love love loved Hadley and Will They’re both good people with amazing banter and chemistry I loved seeing them pretend at weddings and it effortlessly turn into something Plot wise it was light and fluffy and I adored it There’s a bit of conflict but it’s short and so satisfyingly handled Added bonus lots of dogs and several murderino references Overall it was a uick and super cute read My only complaint is that I wanted I’ll definitely be reading this one again

    This author is a go to for low angst fluffy romance without the over the top cheese I would just say that if you're after any detailed sex you won't get that here but you will get a well written friends to lovers story

    375 stars While this one wasn't as good as I Temporarily Do it was still pretty cute Friends to lovers is always a great trope There was a history between Hadley and Will in that they were neighbors and grew up together before losing touch She housesits and dogsits for a living while he works for his Father's construction company and simultaneously wants to flip houses They discover that they're going to multiple weddings over the course of the summer and agree to be each other's plus 1 for all of them It was a fun concept and the dynamic between Hadley and Will was entertaining but it wasn't uite up to par with the first in the series I did like the nod to the characters of the first There was fun and sexy moments along with some cringey ones which can never be avoided when there's miscommunication involved And while I enjoyed this book and read it in less than 2 hours I think it could have benefited from being a little longer Will's brother James seems to be reduced to a classic older brother pervert villain and there were no supporting characters that really stood out to me I appreciated Will's drive to work on houses and Hadley's willingness to help him out The author is good about the smooth transitions from friends to but it might have happened a bit too uickly in this oneIt's still a good beach read It's light and fluffy with little conflict

    This was a sweet fun contemporary romance I really enjoyed both the h and H Told from Hadley’s POV there was a gradual evolution from friendship to something exciting There were one or two sex scenes but I don’t remember them being very explicit I can’t remember I think a few F bombs? There was awesome kissing D

    Nice fluffy MCs rather attractive but nothing special There was potential for some substance but it got wrapped up far too uickly and I felt as if I was left hanging without some important plot points being resolvedview spoiler such as the future relationship between Will and his brother Will's job etc hide spoiler

    I really enjoyed The Designated 1 I loved everything about it; the characters the puppies the cute and adorable romance and all the humor Hadley’s and Will’s story is a tale of love that grows between two people who really enjoy each other’s company and have a hot and sizzling attraction I would recommend this story to anyone who reads contemporary romance Hadley use to be the gang’s sweet little sister When everyone left for college that was the last Hadley saw of anyone Now their friends have lined up six weddings over the summer and when Hadley bumps into Will one day they make a pact to be each other’s plus 1 for the weddings They end up spending a lot of time with one another and the relationship turns to something The Designated 1 is part of the Cordially Invited series but each story can be read as a standalone I voluntarily received and reviewed an advanced copy of this bookFinal Rating 5 Stars

    So first if this is going to be a series it needs a bigger connection than a one sentence mention of a save the date for Emmy and Beckett At the very least a short cameo would have been nice Especially considering no where in I Temporarily Do does it mention that their roommate Brady goes by his last name I spent a good portion of the book not totally sure it was the same guy Yeah there was the bathroom thing but it really wasn't a strong connection This is really barely recognizable as a seriesSecond one of the things I think suffers in these books is they're told entirely from the female lead's point of view The reader is left with no idea what the hero is thinking or what's happening in their lives influencing their actions The hero is left not nearly as 3 dimensional as the heroine The supporting characters could use a lot definition as well I liked Emmy and Beckett better as characters but I think Hadley and Will's story was overall the better book The series is improving and I hope it continues to do so in the next installment
