"Happily Never After" by Lynn Painter is the literary equivalent of a rom-com feel good movie that makes you laugh out loud. 

Sophie's wedding dreams turn into a nightmare when she uncovers her fiancé's infidelity just days before the big day. Unable to confront him herself, her loyal best friend enlists the help of Max to intervene at the ceremony. As the anti-wedding antics unfold, Sophie finds herself drawn to Max, the objector, and their unlikely connection sparks a new adventure.

Together, Sophie and Max embark on a journey crashing weddings and causing chaos as they navigate their shared disdain for love. But when their professional partnership blurs the lines of friendship, things get complicated, especially as Sophie lands a gig as the objector at Max's ex-fiancé's wedding. As emotions run high and boundaries blur, Sophie and Max must confront their feelings for each other amidst the chaos of love, laughter, and unexpected surprises.

Painter's writing style is like a breath of fresh air on a hot summer day – light, breezy, and utterly delightful. Her characters leap off the page with such vivacity that you'll swear you can hear their voices in your head long after you've closed the book.

This was my first time reading this author and the book was so cute! Almost wish it was a little longer and more like character development but it was an easy read that had me kicking my feet
