Vivien Shelton is a successful New York divorce lawyer who has seen the rough side of marriage—including her parents' and grandparents' divorces—and does not believe in marital bliss. Attorney J.B. Anglin, the only one in his family to have ever gotten a divorce, does. They were intimate before but didn't part on the best of terms.

In Texas to convince her friend Julia to get a pre-nup, Viv once again meets J.B., who just happens to be Julia's fiancé's lawyer and best friend. Sparks fly as Viv tries to explain what happened the last time they met while keeping an emotional distance from J.B. Though vehemently opposed to a pre-nup, J.B. finds himself still very attracted to Viv.

This third installment of Kendall's Bridesmaid Chronicles is a fun read, with laugh-out-loud moments. It also has a serious side, as the two main characters come to terms with their past so that they can have a chance at a future. (Aug., 320 pp., $6.99)
