Because I only read about 25% of this book, I'm not going to rate it. My review contains no spoilers, just my thoughts about why it didn't work for me, and isn't meant to discourage anyone from reading this book.


After reading and only somewhat enjoying the first book in series, then reading and really enjoying the second book, I was definitely looking forward to reading The Right Bride, the third book in Jennifer Ryan’s The Hunted series. Sadly, it really didn’t work for me.

An idiot, a gold digger and a doormat walk into a bar...

That should be the start of a really bad joke. It’s also the plot of this train-wreck of a book, The Right Bride by Jennifer Ryan. I say train-wreck also in the classic definition of train-wreck, you know something awful is happening, but you still participate in the “gazer-block”. I couldn’t put the damn thing down, in spite of how much I kept talking back to the characters in my head.

What a dissappointment! Not sure who I wanted to slap the most - him for being a stupid gullible ass, her for being so stupid and allowing him to continually treat her the way he did or the other woman who was such a bitch!

I read the book rant of this book on Smart Bitches, Trashy Books. It was full of wtf-kery so of course I had to check it out from the library to read and everything the rant said was true and then some.

1. The hero is an idiot. His stupidity reminded me of the heroes of yesterday's bodice rippers minus the gleeful wallowing in debauchery and villainy. I can't remember which one it was but I think Joanna Lindsey wrote a romance where the hero has a mistress who keeps aborting his kids and and cau
What happened? This author wrote two great romantic suspense books in this series and then this book with a stupid plot of a guy I'd never call a hero and a heroine that had no backbone when it came to him.

The plot was based on his wanting to do the right thing when the gold-digging girlfriend he wanted to break up with tells him she's pregnant with his baby.

He'd rather ignore his friends advice, ruin his 5 yr old daughter's and the heroine's lives all because he won't go to a single doctor's a

Wow this book was sort of a mess. I liked it in parts. I hated it in parts. The hero was a complete and total idiot.

Cameron's wife passed away in childbirth leaving him to raise little Emma on his own. He is dating Shelly who is a selfish woman because she looks like his ex wife and he wants Emma to have a mom.

He meets Marti at a dinner with a mutual friend. Emma loves Marti from the start. And its love at first sight practically for Marti and Cameron. I was okay with that - some readers aren't
I dont know what to say about this book I had to push myself really hard just to finish because I was so pissed off and annoyed with Cameron. If they had an award for the dumbest book character it would go to Cameron Shaw I could not fathom how he had so much faith in Shelly when he knew from the start she was a gold digger.He took her side over ppl he had known for years ppl he considered to be FAMILY. This book didnt have the same flow as the 2 previous books which actually had me thinking I ...more

This book was ridiculous and you know it's bad when you roll your eyes to the point you have to stop reading because you are so annoyed by everything happening. It reminds me of an old school Harlequin Presents but poorly written. The characters here made no sense, specifically the hero who's involved with a heartless, one-dimensional woman who lies to him and treats everyone he knows, especially his five year old daughter he loves deeply like utter crap. His motives are confusing and he doesn't ...more

Throughout this book I hated cameron, his actions disgusted me.Really can he be a bigger dumba$$? For once i didn't want a happy ending, but we all know the story has to have a happy ending so its not surprising that the couple ended up together happily ever after. But I just can't believe Marti took Cameron back so easily after all the shit he put her through. He may be forgiven, but never forgotten and I would never had taken his sorry behind back. NOT IN THIS LIFETIME!
I sincerely wanted to smack some sense into the hero with a good skillet to the head. Ridiculous.

This is most defiantly a 5 star book! The Author pinned a character that was a snob, and most of the time I wanted to reach through the pages and slap her. The author also pinned a beautiful lady inside and out that everyone loved. The Hero in the story was torn between the two. Shelly had lied and said she was pregnant with Cameron’s child. She knew if she trapped him, that Cameron was her ticket to easy street. She would never have to worry about money again. Cameron grew up without a father, ...more

Oh boy.. . Wanting to listen to something contemporary today because I had a lot to do and no time to sit and read, I snagged this one from my library. There are no reviews there so I went in blind. Never again will I do that. One good thing I can say about this book is that it was consistent. The h was a consistent doormat. The H was a consistent idiot- jerk and the ow was a consistant bitch. Just too over the top ridiculousness. Besides all the ridiculous stuff the H did and said, one of the ...more

I'm giving this book 1 stars only because I did manage to read it until the end.

I don't like the storyline, the hero and heroin. The storyline is like something that you would read in fanfiction. The hero is weak and stupid. I hate the heroin. The way I see it, the heroin is the other woman in this novel. So the heroin is rich, kind, love children etc.. but she is also judgemental, and like to think herself better than others. She calls the other woman liar when she doesn't have a prove. She in

Great book. A great hunter book series. Keep you hooked all the way through. Cameron is a good businessman, charming, clever and confidence but....when you come to love, he do not have the power to risk everything or change set on his mind. I felt to punch him for his stubborness to see right and wrong. Poor Marti...but lucky she is strong and determine to fulfill her love and her compass6ion for Cameron. Good author Jennifer Ryan.

Don't waste your time.$.99 pregnancy test could have cleared up everything!

Spoiler Alert:

The plot could have been so much better but it just seemed force. One second they meet the next they are in love. It was just too fake.

Cameron is just a jerk and didn't deserve Marti. She should have told him to go pound sand after the way he treated her.

All the characters were weak and so cookie cutter good or bad.

Tough one to review because first, I love Jennifer Ryan's books. Second, as unbelievable as this story was I still couldn't help turning page after page thinking Cameron would eventually wise up. Alas, no. Not until the end of the book. The story just didn't have any credibility really so for that I must say not my favorite of the series.

For right now, all I can say is that Cameron Shaw is an asshole.

But I loved every minute.

I just kept reading

I have enjoyed all of the books in this series. I love the strength and vulnerability of the female characters. That being said maybe they get beat on just a little too much. But I can identify with them. I would definitely recommend them.

This book is by far the worst I've read by Jennifer Ryan and I think I'm on number 9 or 10. Cameron is a moron who can't get out of his own way. For someone who runs a large corporation, he is an idiot. Why is he the only one who believes Shelly in the face of all things telling him differently, including his own head? Why is Marti willing to put up with his crap and stupidity? She's young, but not stupid. Why don't Jack and Sam just beat some sense into Cameron, because I sure would like to! ...more

I really like the first two books in this series but I was so frustrated with this one.
The heroine was an absolute door mate it was like a puppy kept getting kicked and would run back to get kicked again. No matter what the hero done or said all she kept saying was how much she loved him.
The hero I was annoyed to a whole new level by him. Although his decisions where explained they still didn't make sense to me especially due to the level things got to. I'm sure their are a lot of people who w

I'm feeling somewhat sickly, is this what passes for romance these days? The h loves the H sooooo much that though he pretty much puts her down and uses her for practically the whole time they know each other he doesn't have to say sorry. She understands. HEA.

This is going into rant territory. I'll apologise for the rambling but I'm a little worked up.

Initially I was bored, a lot of narrative and not enough action, it seemed to have all the emotional maturity of the 10 year olds first infatuati

My Thoughts:
Cameron, Cameron, Cameron....what are we going to do with you? Men can really be dense sometimes and Cameron succeeds at that better than any storybook hero I have seen in quite some time. If I was not enjoying the story in general, I am not sure I would have forged on. But I did enjoy the story in general and was g
Judy & Marianne from Long and Short Reviews
“The stupidest smart person” is a flashing neon-light theme throughout this story of the rich and famous. The unshakable mindset and guilt feelings that drive Cameron Shaw’s decisions in The Right Bride create conflicts that threaten to destroy the lives and happiness of the most important people in his life. Through much of the story, I want to give him a good thumping and tell him to get his head out of the sand, wake up, and get his priorities straight. When his actions began to make his ...more

Book three of the Hunted series.

These books are apparently some sort of guilty pleasure for me. Or a trainwreck, I'm not sure which. I can't stop reading them, even though, on the surface, they aren't that great.

So far, all three of the books in the series have read virtually the same. Very important woman, successful and rich, meets rich man. Something keeps them apart (ex-husband, fiancée, unconsciousness, take your pick). Self-sacrificing woman is severely injured and ends up in the hospital.
