Wedding Beat by Devan Sipher

This was an Audiobook I listened too...

Amazon Book Link

Book Blurb:
Sometimes the Best Man is not even in the wedding Party.
Gavin Green is a hopeless romantic. He's also a professional one: He writes the wedding column for a Pulitzer Prize -winning newspaper, covering spectacular parties from coast to coast. But there's a thin line between being a hotshot reporter on assignment....and being a single guy alone on a Saturday night at someone else's wedding. 

Everything changes on New Year's when Gavin meets Melinda, a travel writer with an adventurous spirit. A moonlit stroll across a Manhattan rooftop seems to seal the deal. But she slips away.

Gavin crisscrosses new Your city to find her again, navigating stressed-out brides, gossip blogs, a budget-cutting boss and his daft but well-meaning parents. Along the way, he learns there's something worse than losing the woman of his dreams--having to write an article about her wedding.

My Review:
I am a true romantic!  I love Cinderella and believe in love at first sight.  I read this blurb and thought "Wow!!! this book is one I am going to love!! I can just tell!!" I couldn't been more wrong!

The book started out great!  I loved his parents, and his best friend Hope.  The characters were well developed.  However, Gavin got on my nerves!  This character whined about his lack of a woman in his life for 90% of this book.  I just couldn't tolerate it.  I really just wanted to reach in the book and so I could slap him and tell him to Man up!   I wanted to say some other things but those are not appropriate for me to write!!!   I did finish the book but it was a chore!

LOL, I just finished listening to a book about a woman who I just wanted to reach in an slap around. ;) I found myself rolling my eyes on more than one occassion. I, too, finished mine. Didn't really care for the ending.

Oh no a whiny male hero..noes. I haven't tired many romances on audio outside of UF and paranormal.
