ARC Review: The Bridesmaid and The Hurricane by Kelly Maher

A one-weekend stand over a year ago, and now they’re coworkers…

Being a woman in TV is hard enough, but when the boss is trying to derail Radhika O’Leary’s career from behind the scenes, she has to make sure every aspect of her work—and her life—stands up to scrutiny.

 

Of course, the double standard is alive and well and Malcolm Jones, the broadcast meteorologist known as “Colm” to his friends and “The Hurricane Hottie” to his fangirls, knows that fame can hurt just as much as it helps. When Colm moves to DC, he’s excited to work with Radhika—her professional reputation is sparkling, and so are the kisses they shared that one weekend over a year ago when he was in town covering a blizzard.

 

But when Radhika is paired up with Colm for a project, all she sees is a looming storm over her carefully constructed career. Sparks still fly between the two journalists, and if they’re not careful, lightning might strike and alter the course of their lives forever.

Fun and sexy! 

Kelly Maher did two awesome things with The Bridesmaid and The Hurricane. One, she gave a great character driven story. Two, in a short story, she gave the reader a wonderful look at the diverse culture that D.C. has to offer.
Radhika O’Leary and Malcolm “Colm” Jones are fun characters. Radhika is smart, funny and very good at what she does. She deals with more than she should, so she can do what she loves. Radhika’s strength is something to behold. Colm has the charm of a southern gentleman. He was nothing I pictured him to be upon meeting and that made me really like him. His personality is only second to his looks and kindliness. 
The Bridesmaid and The Hurricane is a fun and flirty with intense chemistry and personality. Colm and Redkina are fun together. His persistence and her trying to stand her ground is priceless. I loved their interactions and banter. Their chemistry was amazing. Colm and Redkina truly complemented each other. I also loved seeing this relationship build. Kelly Maher has a great start to her Capital Kisses series with the Bridesmaid and The Hurricane. A quick read that makes you laugh and gives you heat. I am very much looking forward to see what some of these lovely secondary characters get themselves into.
