Saving the Wedding (Southern Charm #7) by Nicole Dennis

Friendships and love in Shore Breeze...

From the Saving the Wedding blurb:

Out of the swirling mix of secrets and a hurricane, can love survive?

Two years later, part of the Charm family, Gavin Hartfield creates magical memories and events. One of those weddings will be for the Charm’s owners, Samuel Ashford and Dakota Mitchell, if they ever make up their minds. The other one for his ex-boyfriend and his new partner. In the middle of all this, he keeps tangling with a tattooed brusque EMT.

Xavier “Gray” Grayson feels a bit on the outside looking in when it comes to the collection of Charm men. He envies all of them finding love. Pushing his non-existent sex life filled with one-nights at clubs aside, he runs through life as an EMT and college student pushing to better himself. Running along the beach and trails become his relief and sanctuary. Until he keeps tripping over the new event coordinator.

An incoming hurricane takes aim at Shore Breeze. The town braces for the impact. Plans falter and change. Will life, love, and a wedding follow these changes?

Laora's Review:

Saving the Wedding was lengthy, it was sometimes hard for me to stay engaged with the story due to the many details. For me it took the natural flow out of the story. 

I however have to say that those same details paint a very detailed picture of persons, situations and places.

In this book of the series  the MCS are: Gavin a demisexual gay man by profession wedding/ event planner from Atlanta who moved to Shore Breeze to start anew. And Xavier/ Gray a gay man by profession an EMT and studying to be a nurse. 

I appreciated that none of the (main) characters are flawless and that makes them real to me so that I could engage in the happy and also  sympathise when things where not so great for Xavier/ Grey and Gavin or any of the other characters.

The book is fairly low heat with a hfn for the MCS, but with several weddings, health scares, a revengeful ex, a death and a hurricane in the mix there is plenty to experience in this book. 

Saving the Wedding is book 7 in the Southern Charm series, it is not necessary to have read the other books, but it might give more insight to several side characters/ couples.
