Publisher's Summary

Book one in the USA Today best-selling McMaster the Disaster series.
Josephine McMaster is pretty and smart, but very much a klutzy mess. Finally, at 26, she may have actually lost the dreaded 'McMaster the Disaster' nickname that has followed her around her whole life.
Josie's quite content to be single, much to her mother's disappointment. So when a bizarre contest is announced where a socialite is holding a lottery to pick her bridesmaids (and rake in a little extra cash), she can't roll her eyes fast enough, even if it does mean meeting Jake Hall, her one and only movie star crush. Obviously, Josie doesn't enter the bridesmaid lottery, so you can imagine her surprise when her picture pops up among the winners, thanks to Mom. With a little prodding - okay bribing - Josie agrees to participate.
The wedding turns into the event of the year, and Josie finds herself in the middle of a paparazzi feeding frenzy, which gets even crazier after Jake Hall takes a special interest in her. Can Josie handle the pressure in the spotlight? Is it possible she might really have a chance with Jake Hall? And if she's busy worrying about all that, how in the heck is she going to keep 'McMaster the Disaster' from showing up in front of the entire world?

Fun light romance but . . . .

This is a fun, light romance, good for a summer read. However, there are 2 more books one must read to finish the storyline.

My biggest complaint is that this author consistently uses "I" and "Me" incorrectly. What? Was there no proofreading? Are there no longer editors in the publishing world? It wasn't just once or twice but MANY, MANY TIMES throughout the book. It was so bad that I almost didn't finish and am seriously thinking about writing the author a letter to suggest she repeat some high school english classes. Or she may be young enough that she went through our current public schools that are more concerned with political indoctrination than teaching the basic "Three Rs".

A cliche and a stereotype walked into a bar. . .

. . . after too many shots of tequila, this story walked out.

The story had a decent premise, but poor execution. Too many of the characters were cliches on steroids: The self-centered, over-bearing mother; the gay best friend; the back-stabbing pseudo-best friend; the country bumpkin out of her element; the bitchy, narcissistic model; the world-famous but oddly humble and down-to-earth movie star. . . It was like a clown car of cliches - they just kept pouring out.
There was so much glossed-over in the book: The socialite does a bridesmaid lotto for a publicity stunt. . . that's all there is to that story. There is no relationship or communication between the bride and her bridesmaids - no connection formed, one conversation between Josie and the bride about the bachelorette party, but they don't even talk during that weekend. An alleged rivalry between Josie and Rebecca is implied, but nothing comes of it. Jake falls for Josie with no explanation, no conversation. They share a laugh at the engagement dinner, but that's it.
Anyway, there's just no substance to this story, and nothing happens that makes it remotely believable. The most convincing relationship in the whole story is between Josie and Jennifer.
Then, the story ends with the cliffhanger of Josie flying off to London. If I had known this was not a complete story, I would not have wasted my time on it.

As far as the narration goes, I have listened to 100's of audio books as I drive all day every day. With the exception of author-narrated stories (the ones where there are long periods of dead air and you can hear them taking drinks of water) this is one of the worst I've heard. While I prefer dual narration, there are a few female narrators out there who do an excellent job at male voices: Andi Arndt and Xe Sands leap to mind. Angele Masters' male voices were atrocious. They either sounded like big dumb jocks, total creepers, or straight-guys mockingly imitating a gay man speaking. Honestly, her male voices were borderline offensive. I would go out of my way to avoid listening to another story narrated by her.

Save your money, credits and time. This one is not worth it.
