Cassie Mae’s charming, sexy novel, perfect for fans of Emma Chase, puts a steamy twist on modern love as one bride-to-be tries to put the spark back in the bedroom—by any means necessary.
Elizabeth Fanning’s life looks pretty perfect, judging by the diamond ring on her finger. Her fiancé, Landon, is sweet, handsome, and hilarious. The trouble is, before they’ve even tied the knot, their sex life has gone from mind-blowing to “meh”—and Liz isn’t ready to be part of an old married couple. After a cathartic call to her best friend, Liz comes up with a brilliant idea. She and Landon may never be able to re-create the magic of their first time, but how amazing would their wedding night be if everything below the neck was off-limits until then?
Liz thinks it’ll bring them closer together. Landon’s convinced she’ll cave first. So they raise the stakes: Whoever lasts longer gets to pick their honeymoon destination. With her heart set on the Bahamas and Landon fighting for snowbound Utah, Liz simply has to win. But pretty soon, her body is screaming for attention, and Landon’s never seemed so far away. Has Liz’s experiment backfired? Losing their little competition would be frustrating—but the one thing she can’t afford to lose is him.

A fun and lighthearted read that will have you willing these two together
In a relationship since a university drama class, Liz and Landon are soon to be married. But Liz worries that their long-term relationship has gotten a bit boring, and comes up with a plan to spice things up by removing all of the spice from their relationship.
Liz was cute and fun, and Landon was just a doll. These two are well-suited and this lighthearted romance is packed with simple enjoyable moments. A touch on the ‘cutesy’ side of things, you soon find yourself lost in the story and enjoying this couple.
Anyone in a long term relationship is aware of the ebb and flow, not everything is easy. Liz really isn’t looking for easy, but she doesn’t want to fall into the trap of together because it has become a habit. So, with a bet and honeymoon destination on the line, she sets the rules. No below-the-neck affection or play until the wedding night.
Cassie Mae took a romance on the edge of happy ever after and tosses it all into the air: Logan retreats to keep his chances for winning high, and both characters are frustrated as their insecurities start to breed. Liz doesn’t understand Logan’s remove, and he didn’t (to be fair) give her the reassurance verbally that she needed. It becomes a test of wills and confidence in the relationship, and shows how these two work together, eventually, to bond with a relationship stronger than ever. A fun and lighthearted read that will have you willing these two together.
I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
Sweet and Charming.
This is a Charmingly Sweet lighthearted story that was full of fun romance with a realistic edge. This is somewhat different than most books you read in that in this story when you start reading they are already in love and at the beginning they become engaged. These two met in college drama class and have been living together for about four years now and Lizzie feels like their sex life is missing the wow factor the butterflies are long gone and it's more like they are peas and carrots instead of Strawberries and whipped cream. So she decides, that they need to refrain from sex so that their wedding night it will be amazing and more passionate. Then to sweeten the deal they decide that whoever gives up first loses and the other one gets to chose the honeymoon destination.
But without sex their problems start to takeover. If you have been in a relationship for a long time you will be able to relate to everyone of this story's problems. But there is so much Sweetness and Charm still to get them to the HEA. Loved all the little signs they had and really loved how sweet Landon is in their relationship.
" I didn't just fall in Love with him, I chose to fall in love every day. And even more Exhilarating, he chooses me every day too."
Loved the double squeeze of the hands from Landon that meant that he loved her, and her responding back with one squeeze to mean she loved him too.
What will be your favorites part in this story? You will have to read to find out. Lizzie and Landon forever! Love the sweet and oh so realistic life and romance that this story entails.

Just to hear you say it
Liz and Landon have been together the better part of 4 years. She refers to them as peas and carrots. They go well together, but there is not a lot of excitement. They are busy, sometimes ships in the night.
Then suddenly, they are laying it on the line and he proposes. The excitement is back and it it makes Liz want to find a way to keep it! She wants to be strawberries and whip cream instead of peas and carrots. And they have it, at least for now.
The she says to him how about we wait until our wedding night? The bet is on. Whoever does not give in gets the honeymoon they have dreamed of. Liz is pleased even though she wants to jump Landon. Then they are busy trying to pay for the wedding, survive the in-laws, and not get evicted.
Such an amazingly great story! I have not laughed, and cried so much for a book in a while. I was truly impressed and that is not so simple to do. I found the characters sincere and their quest was for the same thing we all want - to be happy we have found the right someone and have the happy after the buildup.
I have to say I cannot wait for the next installment in the All About Love series. The author has really brought her A game to these books, so be prepared to enjoy with plenty of chocolate and tissues.
