About Going Down On One Knee:
“An utterly charming opposites-attract-story. Hovland perfectly balances simmering sexual tension with a surprising amount of emotion, and the stomach-flip-causing ending is the perfect example of why I read and love romance.” – New York Times Bestselling Author, Lauren Layne
Number-crunching Velma Johnson’s perfectly planned life is right on course.
That’s a lie. Sure, she’s got the lucrative job. She’s got the posh apartment. But her sister nabbed Velma’s Mr. Right. There has to be a man out there for Velma. Hopefully, one who’s hunky, wears pressed suits, and has a diversified financial portfolio. He’ll be exactly like, well… her sister’s new fiancé.
Badass biker Brek Montgomery blazes a trail across the country, managing Dimefront, one of the biggest rock bands of his generation. With the band on hiatus, Brek rolls into Denver to pay a quick visit to his family and friends. But when Brek’s sister suddenly gets put on bed rest, she convinces Brek to take over her wedding planning business for the duration of her pregnancy.
Staying in Denver and dealing with bridezillas was not what Brek had in mind when he passed through town, but there is one particular maid-of-honor who might make his stay worthwhile.
Velma finds herself strangely attracted to the man planning her sister’s wedding.
Problem is, he ticks none of the boxes on her well-crafted list. Brek is rough around the edges, he cusses, and doesn’t even have a 401(k). But trying something crazy might get her out of the rut of her dating life–so long as she lays down boundaries up front and sticks to her plan…
Velma Johnson believes in planning. She has a well-paying job (a financial planner), has spreadsheets and algorithms rating people she dates and is extremely particular about her home and her things, especially her parking spot (you’ll figure that out when you read the book :P)
All that, and the fact that her Mr. Right is dating her sister. But when she meets Breckenridge Montgomery- a person who is as unorganized as a human can be, she realizes that her algorithm and planned decision making has a huge flaw: it wasn’t made for the real life, just for the life she created inside her head.
The book is hilarious. From friendly banters to lover’s tiffs, the author has everything covered. As Brek embraces his new job as a wedding planner due to a huge personal crisis, we get to see the messy side of being a wedding planner. Everything keeps going wrong throughout the plot, but it all adds up to an entertaining story and some unforgettable characters.
The love story between Velma and Brek is very realistic and they have a unique personality which is constant throughout. Velma is awkward and Brek is simply charming (and messy!).
*Do look out for the motorcycle sex part. Found it super creative and unique.*
Loved the plot, the characters, and the climax (for the most part). Well, it’s a whole package. Definitely recommended.
