Call Me Irresistible by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Meg saves her best friend from marrying a man whom she doesn't really love and who doesn't really love her even though they say they do. He happens to be the favorite son of a small Texas town and they are hopping mad at Meg. Oh, by the way, Meg is the daughter of well-known celebrities and Lucy, the bride-that-wasn't, is the daughter of a former President of the United States. Ted (the groom) was born into money but is also wealthy in his own right due to being a genius inventor. And, yes, they are all incredibly gorgeous.
Things I liked about the book: some of the witty repartee and the amusing incidences.
Things I didn't like: Ted and Meg falling into bed for no reason other than it might be fun (and later getting to know each other), explicit sex scenes, and cardboard characters.
If you are in the mood for cotton candy, you might like this book. That is if the sex scenes don't bother you.
