Being a bridesmaid is a dull job. But when the groom gets caught with his cummerbund around his ankles, dull isn’t in the cards.

Lily Michaels is happy to help her best friend cancel her wedding. But since the groom with the broken nose is also her landlord, it means she’s looking for a new apartment. Enter Nate MacIntyre—former boy-band member and current composer—his mostly St. Bernard dog Beau and the apartment over their garage. Nate is sexy, Beau is adorably charming and the apartment is gorgeous. Things are looking up!

But things get complicated when Max, the former groom, starts hassling Lily for the location of his jilted bride. Nate thinks Max is dangerous, Lily thinks Nate is silly, and while she’s enjoying where her attraction to him is going, her independent streak simply won’t let her lean on him too much. What do you get when you mix an overprotective man, an independent woman and the confusion that comes with falling in love? Whatever it is, it’s not dull.


Life is complicated, love is risky, and the path to finding it can be quite the thrill ride.

One Hit Wonderful delivers a fun-filled, emotional journey.  The heroine, Lily, is thrown into a tricky situation, and the turn of events afterwards take her down the road to finding some unexpected love waiting for her in the end.  Lily is feisty, stubborn and strong willed.  I like that about her.  She doesn't get the greatest first impression of Nathan, her soon to be new landlord.

I like a musician, and Nathan fits the bill perfectly.  He had a small bout with fame, and now continues to make music, but isn't as well known.  He didn't get the greatest impression of Lily, either, but the two sure changed their opinions when she rents out his apartment!

I enjoyed this story.  The characters, the plot, and the wit were spot on.  One Hit Wonderful is a novel not to be missed if you enjoy a little bit of everything mixed into one great read.
