Not all marriages last forever…

Suzanne Jefferson is broke, which is why she’s given up charity work for wedding planning. Fortunately, she has a high-profile client—and best of all, he’s paid in advance. There are just two teensy problems: The bride is a bona fide bridezilla, and Suzanne’s ex-husband is the best man. At least she thought he was her ex-husband…

...but this one might.

Two years after their marriage fell apart, stock car race driver Ryder Jefferson still can’t stop thinking about Suzanne. Which is why he isn’t too upset that, due to a glitch, the two are still technically married. Now he’s imagining easing Suzanne’s woes by satisfying her needs in the bedroom. After all, that’s the one room they never argued in. Besides, with wedding bells ringing all around them, Ryder is wondering if—even though they’d quit the race a few laps too early—they can still come on strong with a big, romantic finish…

"I banged the bride. I feel a little funny about standing up for her husband at their wedding."

Suzanne and Ryder find out that after two years of being divorced, they indeed are not divorced. Neither one has truly stopped loving each other, but are afraid to share that fact with the other.

The chemistry between the two was hot, but I didn't really get why they were divorced in the first place. At times I thought Suzanne was a little harsh towards Ryder for no apparent reason. And that behavior kind of put me off with regards to Suzanne.

I was happy that they did manage to work things out because Ryder seemed to really love her. With me being more connected to Ryder than Suzanne, I wanted him to be happy and he seemed to get that from Suzanne. Although I did feel that a lot of their problems could have been avoided if they would communicate about something, anything, other than sex. It seemed to be unnecessary.

I really enjoyed the series because all the lead men are both hot and caring. With that being said, Hot Finish has to be my least favorite of this series so far. Although that won't stop me from eagerly awaiting the next installment, The Chase.
