Skinny Bitch Gets Hitched (Skinny Bitch #2) by Kim Barnouin

The book is told from the point of Clementine (Clem) Cooper aka Skinny Bitch, a hardcore vegan [yuck, give me a thick sirloin or some ribs any day], just got engaged to her boyfriend Zach, a meat eater [a normal person, dude owns a steakhouse and huge company]; between dealing with her new restaurant 'Clementines's No Crap Cafe', her soon to be mother in-law from hell, and a best friend getting engaged to a somewhat jerk she's got a lot on her plate.

Things get really crazy when Dominique her soon to be mother in-law starts planning the wedding and you can just imagine how things go. Clem is a say it how it is kind of girl and her Dominique is very posh, so things don't always jive. 

Then her friend Sara gets engaged to a loud mouth jerk, who surprisingly as the book progresses Clem learns the guy truly loves Sara, even if he has a very crazy weird way of expressing it [he constantly embarrasses her]. 

In the story Clem also gets a list of things to check-off before she gets married by Zach's aunt, Jocelyn. In the list, there are series of things she has to be sure of before she decides to get married. My favorite one was the 'if you plan to change him, return the ring'; there is also one where you ask your partner to list the reason's they love you [this is where Sara's beau really proves himself] and to save the list.

Anyway, things get really strained with Clem and Zach; Clem feels that Zach is pulling away and at the same time we don't really know what's eating Zach until way later in the book [guys really need to learn to say what's up not just bottle it in, girl's aren't mind readers], but the good thing is we eventually get out happy ever after and it was an enjoyable read. Plus I loved that Clem had the little devil / angel on the shoulder, that was good.
