"Before We Kiss" by Susan Mallery is laugh out loud funny and an awesome romance!

************Thank you NetGalley for a review copy of this book*****************

Former pro-football kicker Sam Ridge has notoriously bad luck with women—from cheaters to fame chasers. Still, the gorgeous brunette at the bar in Fool's Gold looks harmless—until she takes him home and he discovers a room devoted to securing a man, for life. 

Dellina Hopkins never guessed that storing gowns from a friend's bridal boutique would chase away her first and only fling. After her parents died, she skipped her "wild youth" to raise her sisters. She doesn't want forever from Sam, but one night—all night—would've been nice. 

His clean getaway gets messy when his firm hires Dellina to plan an event. As long hours lead to late nights, the two succumb to temptation again. Has Sam's luck finally changed? Or this time, will Dellina be the one to run?

As much as I loved "When We Met", this one was just as awesome. I laughed so hard.  Sam and Dellina had a one night stand on Valentine's Day, but when he took a wrong turn out of the bedroom and found himself in his worst nightmare... A room full of bridal dresses and a "how to get him to propose" list, he took off. He has avoided Dellina like the plague until now. He needs her.

Dellina figured out pretty quick why Sam took off that night, but she doesn't make an effort to try to explain. Its his job to come to her for that. But, Sam needs Dellina. She is a party planner, and Sam's company Score is throwing a huge party for their clients. Only four weeks until the big weekend, and Sam must enlist Dellina's help in planning the party or it will be a bust.

Dellina, of course, agrees, and starts the process. Food, activities, and a lecture are all in the works. Sam is eager to help, especially after Dellina explains about the creepy room in her house. The dressed are being stored for the local wedding dress shop that is expanding, and the list is Dellina's sister's.  Sam feels kinda stupid, but he jumps on board helping Dellina with the party. And all that time spent with Dellina shows that she may be just a bit different than the previous women in his life.

The absolute best part of this book is when Dellina books an author who is going to be in Fool's Gold for a book signing to do the lecture during the party weekend. The woman is sort of like a sex therapist. What Dellina doesn't know is that she is Sam's mother.. and she's also not afraid of a little demonstration or showing a video during her lectures. Sam is mortified and wants to run to Mexico to avoid his mother. Dellina thinks he is over exaggerating.. Til she has dinner with Sam and his parents. Now she too is scared to death what the woman will do during the lecture!

Oh My Gosh. I laughed so hard!! It was absolutely fabulous! Everyone, go forth and read!  Im off for now, I know sometimes I ramble too much!
