What’s the worst thing that could happen to a blushing bride?

After Zoe is jilted by her fiancĂ© Jason, she’s unable to face the pitying looks of her friends and family any longer.

Fleeing to America, she is employed as a nanny by the moody, difficult, but devastatingly sexy, single dad Ryan.

She quickly wins over his children, but her boss is more of a challenge. Things aren’t helped, of course, by her inadvertently displaying her knickers to his colleagues or nearly hospitalising him with a toy bow and arrow.

Thank God she’s got her colourful circle of friends to keep her sane: fun-loving Trudie, hippy Amber and chilly, tight-lipped Felicity.

It is only over time that Zoe and Ryan begin to understand each other and their apparently ill-fated relationship takes on a new dimension.

There’s just one problem, as Zoe soon discovers: that the past isn’t always easy to escape, no matter how far away you go.
Zoe Miller’s boyfriend stood her up on her wedding day. Unable to face her friends and family, Zoe flew to America to be a nanny to Ruby and Samuel. But Ryan, the single father was not easy for her. Just as Zoe, Ryan and the kids started to get along very well, Zoe’s past caught up with her.

I love this book. The Nearly-Weds is definitely one of my favorites from Jane Costello. It’s very entertaining and funny. I just can’t put down the book. The Nearly-Weds was told in Zoe’s point-of-view. Zoe’s a likeable character. She’s tough, caring and funny. She can be serious and fun. I love how she’s with Ryan’s kids. Ruby and Samuel were great supporting characters. They made the book a lot more entertaining. And Ryan… He’s hot. He wasn’t very friendly at first, but after a while, he began to show who he truly was. I love those arguments between Zoe and Ryan. They are mostly funny!

The Nearly-Weds was very predictable. But I still enjoyed the story very much, which is why I’m giving the book a 5 stars! I would recommend this book to those who were looking for an easy read with tons of laugh out loud moments.
