The Weekday Brides #4
Karen Jones: The petite blonde married a Hollywood star, yet she’s the one who spends every day playing a part: the part of a happy wife. A year ago, she agreed to wed a famous actor to diffuse rumors about his personal life. Now, her divorce sits just around the corner, along with a five million dollar payout. However, as she prepares to exit her fake marriage gracefully, her drop-dead-gorgeous brother-in-law walks through the door…and into her heart.
Zach Gardner: Dark-haired, blue-eyed hunk Zach crashes Michael and Karen’s fancy one-year anniversary party, determined to meet the wife his brother hid from their family. But sparks fly the moment he and Karen see each other. When the famous couple decides to visit the whole Gardner clan, Karen must keep Michael’s secret under wraps in front of his questioning relatives…including Zach, the man who could be the real love of her life.
This is an amazing book and my favorite so far in this series. I love Karen and her marriage to Michael. The fact that this is a fake marriage, but yet Karen and Michael do love and care for each other. They also truly do make each other happy. But then Catherine Bybee brings in Zach. Hot, sexy, steamy Zach who happens to be Michael’s brother. The sparks are immediate and undeniable, but Karen is Zach’s sister-in-law making her off limits. It was great to see them circle each other, while working very hard to stay loyal to Michael and their values.
As the story continues we get small peaks into the rest of Michael’s family and their lives, but it definitely left me needing to know more. I am hoping that the future books in this series will give me more about Judy, Hannah, and Rena. Of course more with Zach and Karen would be perfect also.
This whole series is a favorite of mine and I highly recommend it. The books do not have to be read in order, but you will have a better background on the characters if they are.

This man was gorgeous, and if she were one to believe in instant attraction, her body responded to him with a fierceness she didn’t think possible. Maybe this was what the women gazing at Michael experienced that she did not. This wild thrill of discovery that led to possibilities only the big screen could fulfill.
Instead of letting her imagination get the best of her, Karen flattened a hand over her stomach and attempted to act unaffected. “Do I know you?”
The sex personified blue-eyed man stepped toward her. It took effort for her to hold her ground.
Sensing her unease, he held still, looked around the both of them as if noticing the caterers running about and guests arriving behind him, and said simply, “Zach Gardner.”
The smile on her face stayed. The name tickled at the edges of her consciousness. Memories flashed behind the veil of her mind until she narrowed her focus. “Michael’s brother?” she whispered.
Zach gave a small nod and swept his eyes down her frame. When his eyes met hers again, he masked whatever he’d been thinking, then he smiled and said, “And you’re the wife none of us have met.”
Not a lot shook Karen. She’d managed the role of Michael’s wife under the ever-present scrutiny of paparazzi, producers, actors, and fans . . . but the man standing in front of her did what no one else could. He made her question her decision to marry.
