Kissing her best friend's brother never felt so right...
Sela Sullivan is resolved to be the best maid of honor ever, even if it means tolerating the best man. Insufferable, too-handsome Luke Watters is not only the guy who humiliated her at a kissing booth in high school, but he also happens to be her best friend's older brother. Positive he's the same arrogant jock, Sela vows to focus on her duties and steer clear of the frustrating - and frustratingly tempting - Luke.
As a world-renowned extreme-sports photographer, Luke is used to undertaking life-risking adventures. But risking his heart for the beautiful Sela Sullivan, who clearly still hates him for his rejection all those years ago? He didn't see that coming. Sela inspires a passion he's never known, and the more time they spend together, the more he craves her. But can he prove to the maid of honor he's become a man of honor?

I wasn't supposed to enjoy kissing you...
Until now, I was an audiobook virgin. Part of the whole reading experience for me is hearing the characters voices in my head and immersing myself in their world as I envisage it, another is I have a tendency to drift when listening to someone talk for lengthy amounts of times - curse of the introvert, over-active wandering mind and all that. But Robin Bielman is one of my favourite authors and Kissing the Maid of Honor will always be a firm favourite as it was the one that introduced me to her; with a great storyline, endearing characters, humour, romance and heartwarming moments combined with those that pull on the heartstrings a little, it was the perfect book to introduce me to the world of using my ears as opposed to my eyes.
The narrator, Carly Robins, couldn't have been picked any better. She was the perfect voice for Sela and her portrayal of each of the secondary characters came across very well (particularly Shane, he has been my favourite character of the entire series). Sela and Luke were both wonderful easy to love realistic characters; she kind, compassionate and caring home bird who has never left her hometown and is determined to be the best Maid of Honour her best-friend Vanessa could wish for whilst he is her complete opposite; he’s travelled the world as a sports photographer, enjoys the more extreme of sports and dates like-minded women. Sela's best friend's big-brother, her brother Shane’s best-friend and the Best Man, he's also the guy who, ten years previously, told his buddies she ‘kissed like a corpse’. Needless to say there’s a touch of dislike there, her hurt has never gone away, nor can she forgive him. But Luke has returned home with a secret and Sela works it out...
The chemistry between them was perfectly emulated from written to audio, which if I'm honest I wasn't really expecting and I found myself laughing, smiling and feeling all warm and fuzzy at the self same moments I did when I read the book. Whether or not you're a seasoned listener of audiobooks, this is one I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
