Bayside’s Most Unexpected Bride by Kerri Carpenter is the perfect end in the Saved by the Blog series. A small-town trilogy romance that’s packed with witty dialogue, romance, and lots of shenanigans.

Careful to keep her past from impacting her current life in Bayside, she’s hesitant to move beyond the friends zone with Sawyer Wallace. Is it possible that she can find love at work and not have it ruin her life?
Sawyer Wallace loves his job but when his business is on the edge of ruin and a lucrative offer is put into play, will he risk everything and reveal the biggest secret in Bayside?
One hot kiss and a town full of gossip will put Bayside on the front page, but can you believe everything you read in the paper?

Spicy – Best enjoyed with your favorite iced-beverage, a cozy chair, and maybe a fan.I received this ARC from the publisher for a fair and honest review. Note, while this can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend reading the series in order to truly appreciate the mystery that runs through the entire trilogy.
“Hey, boss. What’s up?”
He steepled his hands on his desk and peered at her with his dreamy hazel eyes.
Damn. Dreamy? She meant irritating. Beady even.
The weather was unseasonably cold already and he was sporting a pair of corduroy pants and a somewhat ugly argyle sweater that she knew had been a Christmas gift from his mother last year. Not the most stylish of outfits and yet somehow he looked like he’d walked out of the pages of an L.L.Bean catalog. Just because he was tall with broad shoulders and had really cute sandy-brown hair that flopped on his head because he needed a haircut. And today he was wearing his glasses. What was it about a large lumberjack-looking man who wore glasses? Why did that make her stomach twist up into knots? And then there was his lopsided smile…
What in the heck was she doing? This was Sawyer Wallace, lifelong friend and, more importantly, boss. She couldn’t size him up like a piece of meat. Especially because they worked together. Especially because of what had happened to her in New York.
“Riley,” he began.
“Sawyer,” she countered, and bit her lip in anticipation.
He reached into his top desk drawer and pulled out a colorful silk scarf. “Before I forget, Tony found this at The Brewside. Said you left it there a couple of weeks ago and he kept forgetting to give it to you.”
She reached for the bright yellow scarf with lime-green polka dots. One of her favorites.
“Thanks,” she mumbled. “Tony must have given this to you while you were on your date.” She used air quotes for the word date and wiggled her eyebrows.
Sawyer exhaled a long breath.
“What?” she asked, feigning innocence.
“‘Bayside’s forever bachelor’?” he quoted. “Really?”
“I thought I told you to keep me out of the Bayside Blogger’s column.”
