Review: Stop the Wedding by RJ Scott (Snowed Inn #1)



Note: An advance reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author.

Stop the Wedding is part of the multi-author Snowed Inn series, and it's penned by RJ Scott. Patrick Holmes and Declan Brady were once the closest of friends, but all it took was one kiss and a public declaration of love for the two to end up estranged. Two years since that disastrous moment after their college graduation, Patrick receives a voice message from Declan asking to be rescued from his wedding. Knowing this could be his one and only chance at finally making a stand and letting Declan know that his feelings were never unrequited, not even a couple of years ago. But will Patrick make it in time, what with traveling from Charleston to Colorado during the holiday season, and by the time he gets there, what kind of reception from the only guy he's ever loved and rejected?

Friends-to-lovers is one of my favorite tropes, but there's something about having the main characters be former best friends that adds that bit of tension that makes things all the more interesting. It was clear that Declan and Patrick had a lot of history, and their friendship was something extraordinary. After everything that went down on the day they graduated from college, I understood why things would be awkward between them. Add to that more recent events surrounding Declan's engagement, and well, these two obviously needed to work on their communication skills. But I seriously liked the journey they went on while stuck together after the avalanche. It was forced proximity but still allowing them to have had to choice to keep their distance or to finally face their issues. Stop the Wedding was a fun read with some angst and a much-deserved HEA. Four stars.
