Don’t Kiss the Bride by Carian Cole is now live!
I guess you could say I was a damsel in distress, and he was my knight in shining armor.
But more accurately, I was a girl with a lot of bad luck, and he was a guy with a lot of muscles and tattoos.
Jude “Lucky” Lucketti wasn’t just a sexy, brooding construction worker. He was my own personal hero who seemed to be in all the right places at the right times. Like when my car broke down and I needed a ride home, and when I face planted on the sidewalk right in front of him and had to be taken to the emergency room.
Those weren’t exactly my best moments, but they were his.
We became friends, and it didn’t matter that he was sixteen years older than me. We had a lot in common—like our love of old rock music and vintage fast cars, and our aversion to relationships.
When he approached me with a crazy idea to help me out, I couldn’t say no.
The arrangement was supposed to be temporary. A marriage on paper and nothing else.
It should’ve been easy, but it wasn’t.
Because here I am, eighteen years-old, still in high school, and married to a man I was never supposed to fall in love with.
We had just one rule—no kissing the bride.
But we broke that rule, and it sealed our fate forever.

Skylar’s home situation is heartbreaking and has led to some self-destructive behavior. She is trying to finish school with no support, either financially or emotionally, and she is uncertain how to get out of the predicament she finds herself in and what her future could hold. Jude is there when she needs someone the most and he gives her hope of what her life could be like.
Jude is much older and much more jaded than Skylar. He has a painful past and wants to help Skylar as he was unable to help those he loved in the past. What starts out as an arrangement rather than a true marriage becomes complicated when rules are bent and unbending them no longer seems possible.
Despite the difference in ages and lifestyle Skylar and Jude are soulmates. They bring each other a peace that neither expected but the judgments of others can be daunting. It becomes an emotional journey for them to realize that the love, acceptance and how they feel about each other is all that truly matters.
