4.75 Stars

Marry in Haste. Hell, Yeah

Warning: Do not read this book if you dislike weddings.

Reid wants a ring on Zarley’s finger, but Zarley doesn’t need a wedding to feel married to Reid. Owen is ready to start a family, but Cara isn’t sure she wants kids. Sarina is pregnant and proposed to Dev and he wants a wedding
by the weekend.

Venue, guest list, invitations, the dress, the suit, rings, vows, catering. It
s a lot to get done in a few days. What could possibly go wrong?

Only one thing is certain with this shotgun wedding, love is the trigger and hearts will take a direct hit of happiness.

For better, for worse, forever.

This is for readers who enjoy catching up with the HEAs of couples in the Sidelined series. All the stories in Sidelined can be read independently, in any order, except Shotgun Wedding, which is more fun if read after Offensive Behavior, Damaged Goods and Sold Short.

Shotgun Wedding includes a bonus Sidelined Origins story, Running Interference, about how Reid and Dev met Sarina and Owen.

First of all...please read all 3 books in the Sidelined series before reading this book/review.
Shotgun Wedding is an epilogue for all three couples.
It's about what happens once their book said THE END. Because their stories are SO not over yet.

Reid is desperately trying to get a ring on Zarley's finger and she is not having it! She doesn't need some papers saying she's in love with Reid. But Reid wants it for so many reasons! Ugh poor guy.

Owen has almost the same problem. Cara is not really scared of getting married, but she's horrible against having kids. Of losing herself once she's 'only' a mother. And poor Owen wants his own family!

And then of course we have our newest couple. Dev and Sarina. Newly pregnant and about to get married as soon as possible. How to plan a wedding in 4 days! And how to break the news to your strict indian dad! ☺

LOTS of obstacles still left to jump over until all six of them can finally take a deep breath and enjoy their happily forever ever afters! ☺

It wasn't all that long, but it was perfect.
We got to see them all again. All their weirdness and adorableness! They're just all so perfect for each other - as lovers and best friends! Great group of people!
Lots of very angsty and moving and teary moments! I just adored this book!!!

SHOTGUN WEDDING was the most perfect epilogue a series can have!!! Adorable, moving, sexy, frustrating, funny ... just perfect!
Run to your nearest amazon asap to find out what happened to all our darlings after THE END!!!

And now Ainslie - give us whatever's next asap! Please ☺

Copy received from the author for an honest review

Each Ainslie Paton book is like a box of chocolates - you never know what you are going to get.

Shotgun Wedding is really an extended epilogue for all three books in the Sidelined series, and is a great insight into all our couples after the end of Sold Short.

It was great to catch up with them all.  Timeline is based around Dev and Sarina's wedding, but there is so much more going on around them.  There was so much emotion that I wasn't expecting in this book!  There was laughter and tears, over the moon happiness but more sadness than I thought was coming.  Or maybe it is just me who felt the feels?

Ainslie Paton is one of my favourite and auto buy authors, and I can't wait to see what quirkiness she brings us next.
