Synopsis:  Lily’s fianc√© 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.

My thoughts:  Where do I even begin with this book? I laughed out loud at some parts and cringed at others. None of these characters have any redeemable qualities. We have Lilly who sleeps with anything with a pulse. Within the first 2 pages she has kissed someone and slept with another, and that's just at her bachelorette party. Lilly is so far from marriage material and has so many issues that it's almost funny. It seems like everyone is sleeping with someone who they shouldn't be sleeping with. *Spoiler alert* The best part was where Lilly blackmailed Will's Mom because she slept with one of her son's friends. The plot twist was predictable in my opinion. It wasn't a terrible book, but it wasn't 5 stars either. 

I received this from blogging for books for an honest review******
