Nick Katsalos has a foolproof plan to save his parents' floundering wedding venue. The last thing he expects is for Erin O'Malley, the captivating daughter of his parents' biggest rival, to waltz in and charm the client who could finally get the family business back on track. Nick would be furious--if only he could stop thinking about her.

When Erin and Nick enter into a wager to determine who will win the contract she prepares for the worst...and is surprised by the glimpses of warmth she sees in the man behind the numbers. But Erin isn't about to forfeit what could be the biggest wedding of the decade to a man as cold as Nick. Especially since securing it means she could finally prove to her father she's just as capable of handling the family business as him.

But as the competition heats up, Erin and Nick must decide what's more important—winning or love.

Barbara DeLeo takes us back to Westchester for The Wedding Wager bringing us an enemies-to lovers romance with a real Romeo and Juliet feel, and this time it's Nick, the eldest of the Katsalos siblings, turn to find love.

The Katsalos' and the O'Malley's are the Montague and the Capulet's of the... ...more

Two warring families, both in the Wedding business, and two characters cursed by the Romeo-and-Juliet lovestory. Yeah, you get the gist. One thing that bound them was a wager, for the wedding of a congressman's daughter, who can't seem to decide where to hold her nuptials. Would it be in The Aegi... ...more

A great return to Westchester and the Aegean Palace! I was hoping for Nick's story after reading The Bouquet List.

Nick Katsalos is home to take his turn in trying to save his parents business and get them to come home from Greece. He believes if he lands the wedding of a congressman's daughter, a... ...more

This is the second book in the series and has that great, easy to read, low angst feel to it as the first book but I have to admit, I think I might have enjoyed Nick and Erin's story a little bit more than Yasmin and Lane's. I'm a sucker for rivals to lovers stories, what can I say.

Nick was very... ...more

By Susan (susayq ~) May 20, 2016

I really enjoyed this. It was a bit on the angsty-side, which is fine for me, because of the animosity between the O'Malley family and the Katsalos family and the bet that Erin O'Malley and Nick Katsalos made and all that was riding on the winning of it.

Nick was cocky and put his emotions to the... ...more

The Wedding Wager was pure bliss. I received an ARC of this short story in exchange for an honest review. Ms Deleo lead her readers on a merry chase with this rival to romance novel.

SO SO GOOD! I’m tempted to end my review right there, but that won’t do this book justice. I enjoyed The Wedding Wager so freaking much. It was so great. It is a quick read, my copy was only about 146 pages, but it was still so worth it. I binge-read it in about 2 hours when I should’ve been slee... ...more

By Give Me Books May 12, 2016

The idea of an enemies-to-lovers story set in the wild world of weddings was basically irresistible to me. I mean, come on, it was bound to be fun, right?

Right. Also, charming. Adorable. Sweet. Endearing. And swoony—oh, so swoony.

Barbara DeLeo’s The Wedding Wager is the first book I have read by her. I liked her style and found the characters easy to like. The story centers around the family business of which the main characters’ families are rivals. The author made this scenario work really well when I couldn’t see it ha... ...more

Combine romance with a competition and what do you get? The Wedding Wager! and no, it isn't a wager on who is going to marry who, but on which wedding venue is the best in town. Nick is very analytical and finds faults in movies, paintings, etc. Erin can be a free spirit when she chooses is ruled... ...more

3.5-4 stars.

This was a really sweet story.

We have Erin and Nick entering a wager to win the chance to have a huge wedding at their own venue. Nick and Erin’s families are rivals in the wedding business, so winning means more contracts for the future and bragging rights, of course, lol.

As the stor... ...more

Another enjoyable read from Barbara DeLeo. I continue to love the way that the importance of family is embraced in her books - especially the Weddings in Westchester stories. Looking forward to Nick's younger brother Ari's HEA (and I think I know who the woman would be) if it gets written. While... ...more

Loved this addition to the series. (Although can be a stand alone) Nick is trying desperately to save his parents' wedding venue business. This should be simple with his skills and knowledge, however when you start falling for the competition, new problems arise. Great romantic read. I enjoyed Ni... ...more

By Karla April 09, 2016

How awesome is this book. I Romeo and Juliet type books. Both families rivals. Both in the wedding biz. Both need to turn their business around. That is how the wager happened. Did they know that sparks were going to fly? No! Such a good fast read. ...more

By Melanie May 05, 2016

I really enjoyed this story. There was not a whole lot of romance, but what can you expect from long time family rivals, right? I think that Barbara DeLeo did a great job with keeping the rivalry clean and competitive. Sometimes competitions are taken too far, but this was tactfully done to where... ...more

About the author

Barbara DeLeo

Barbara DeLeo’s first book, co-written with her best friend, was a story about beauty queens in space. She was eleven, and the sole, handwritten copy was lost years ago much to everyone’s relief. It’s some small miracle that she kept the faith and now lives her dream of writing sparkling contemporary romance with unforgettable characters. Degrees in English and Psychology, and a career as an English teacher, fuelled Barbara’s passion for people and stories, and a number of years living in Europe gave her a love for romantic settings.  Discovering she was having her second set of twins in two years, Barbara knew she must be paying penance for being disorganized in a previous life and was determined to get it right this time. It’s amazing what being housebound with four preschoolers will do for the imagination and she decided it was time to follow her writing dream. Funnily enough, those first manuscripts had not a single child in them. Married to her winemaker hero, Barbara’s happiest when she’s getting to know her latest cast of characters. She still loves telling stories about finding love in all the wrong places, but now without a beauty queen or spaceship in sight.
