Meet Lily Wilder: New Yorker, lawyer extraordinaire, blushing bride. And totally incapable of being faithful to one man.      Lily’s fiancé Will is a brilliant, handsome archaeologist. Lily is sassy, impulsive, fond of a good drink (or five) and has no business getting married. Lily likes Will, but does she love him? Will loves Lily, but does he know her? As the wedding approaches, Lily’s nights—and mornings, and afternoons—of booze, laughter and questionable decisions become a growing reminder that the happiest day of her life might turn out to be her worst mistake yet.      Unapologetically sexy with the ribald humor of Bridesmaids, this joyously provocative debut introduces a self-assured protagonist you won’t soon forget.From the Hardcover edition.

I was really disappointed with this book. I couldn’t get into the characters at all and honestly. I wasn’t able to get to know the characters and the main character only seemed to care about having sex. Lily is planning on marrying her dream guy in one week. Will is the perfect guy. For some reason marrying Will isn’t enough for her. She just continues to have as many one night stands as she can before her wedding day.

I just feel like this book was glamorizing the drinking, one night stands, and cheating. I just felt like this book was a big waste of my time. I am sad to say that I have added another book to my DNF list.
