Your best friend is getting married, and she's asked you to be her bridesmaid. So many decisions: for starters, do you ask the gorgeous mystery man you met online to come as your date? Or do you go solo to check out the talent?
But once the country wedding weekend gets going, all kinds of adventures are on offer. Will you ditch your date? Duet with the dishy DJ? Dodge the disreputable best man?

All this while dealing with the bachelorette party, the bride's jitters, the Dress From Hell, and more.

When your friend cancels on your girls' night out at the last moment, you suddenly find yourself all dressed up and alone at an exclusive bar. What do you do now?

eye... then there's the bodyguard who has the keys to his boss's sports car and is offering you a ride... or maybe you'd rather just head home instead - to your sexy new neighbour.
Whichever way you decide to go, each twist and turn you make will lead to an unforgettable encounter. Can you choose the ultimate sensual experience? The power is entirely yours!
