Not a bad story. I loved the way Sophie and Jay were explored as individual characters and as a couple. The light and dark of their chemistry was well done. Jay blew hot and cold leaving Sophie feeling like she was on an emotional roller coaster. I loved how the information regarding sign language wasn't made a HUGE deal of but was explored, fairly accurately too, by the author.

What lost the 2 stars for the book were:
1 star was deducted as I felt Jays brother Patrick's relationship with El

I keep hoping that reality TV romance is my thing, but this one didn’t work for me.

There are a couple of obvious things that most fictional reality TV bachelor/ette style shows do that get on my nerves.

The first is to offer a huge cash prize (in this case a million dollars). This doesn’t happen. It doesn’t need to happen, because people will go on the bachelor/ette because they want to fall in love. Or, you know, jumpstart a career in the entertainment industry, but let’s go with them mostly

I liked this book a lot better than the last one about a reality dating show I read. still, it was a I don't see why Jay couldn't have been a bit more pleasant to Sophie during their marriage. i get not having sex on camera, but his behavior was borderline emotionally abusive at times, and it was a real turn off for me. then he smiles and makes nice and Sophie forgives him instantly. he came off as douchey and she came off as desperate. i wish more time would have been spent on the sh ...more

Jay and Sophie. Jay was too hot and cold before he was chosen as the winner of the contest. I felt that Sophie was too tolerant of his jerky behavior. The second story line of his brother and Eleanor should have been its own story. The switching back and forth was very confusing. Cameras in the bedroom once they got married. I'm sorry, that was just not believable. Finally, Jay was such a complete jerk once they got married and then everything was neatly tied up in the last couple of pages. ...more

Mostly enjoyable until the last third of the book

This book started out good, I really love the reality tv premise and the characters had a good chemistry. But then Jay was a stupid idiot up until pretty much the end, and I just couldn't enjoy the last 3rd of the book because of that. I'm not going to spoil anything, but I just didn't like him. Also Sophie should have said something about his stupidity instead of just ignoring it. It just made me mad.

There is a secondary romance in this book tha

A fun read

Based loosely on the TV reality show, The Bachelorette, this is a sweet romance, and a good summer read. Gives a little hint into how "reality" shows can make anything look the way the producer wants it to look. Fun, sweet, sexy, romantic ...not too deep. Very enjoyable.

Poor ebook editing

Terrible ebook editing with missing, wrong and duplicated words. Story was an ok romance with a twist in the way of finding each other.

The story line was great fun but there were too many explicit bits I prefer not to read so I got through it quickly.

This was a good book. The characters were well fleshed out and it kept me reading to see how the author would wrap things up. The only disappointment was the graphic scenes in the last quarter of the book. The entire book was engaging and clean up to that point and the scenes included were unnecessary. If it wasn't for that I would have given 4 stars. ...more

This book was just so...sad.

I don't watch much reality TV, but for some reason I usually really enjoy books that revolve around them. This book's setup for why such a nice, normal woman would go on a reality marriage show was very reasonable, which is difficult to pull off.

Early in the book I felt like I wasn't getting enough detail during the reality show's filming. Everyone was staying in the same mansion, I guess? But the heroine apparently interacted with the men only when the cameras were

What an unexpected, and delightful read this turned out to be! Having purchased this book months ago, I didn't know what this book was about when I started reading yesterday (besides the obvious info the title gives away)... I randomly scrolled through my books and this one was the one I landed on - and I certainly wasn't disappointed!

Lights. Camera. Marriage! was intense. I smiled, laughed, swooned, cried, and got pissed, all in a span of a few hours while reading this book. I haven't felt thi

I didn't know what to think about this book when I started reading it
then I wasn't sure if I liked the whole premise...I'm not one for reality t.v.. But the book grew on me, like a fungus. I tried several times to put it down and go back to sleep. I wound up reading the whole thing. And, spoiler alert, I loved it! I'm going to have to keep an eye on this author.

It was a nice book to read. Two romances in one. It was good to both brothers were able to find love in the end. I would recommend this book for others to read. It's not often that a man moves away from a loving situation but Jay did but then he found Sophie that he knew he needed Sophie and the end And they found

This book was so real in how love can play out. The behind the scenes view of ordinary people unsure of their ultimate fate but finally getting exactly what they deserved was a great warming read!

Violence: none

Sex: descriptive kissing, foreplay about 80% in (dang) and the sex just keeps going.
Returned for content. Detailed sex overload.

easy reading, mind candy. if you get the gist of the Bachelor / Bachelorette then this book is easy to follow along. some spelling and grammar issyes, even a few botched character names. overall, entertaining. reads as a standalone book even tho says part of a series

I really liked this book. It was funny, it was sad, it was romantic. I felt a little more drama between the bachelors would have been okay. Jay had too much of a stick up his butt, IMO.

More of a 3.5

It was ok for me. The beginning started strong and then it kind of fizzled out at the end. Why the need for the cameras in the bedroom?

Great book

I found this to be an awesome book that was pretty clean. It had sex scenes but nothing overpowering. I will add this book to my read again list.

This was an amusing read. The plot revolves around a reality TV show. The characters are believable and well well defined.

This was a different take on a romance book with a little twist having it be a reality tv show. I liked the characters in this book a lot.

Great read.

Really enjoyed the characters in this story. Loved the idea of the story line, and couldn't wait to see how it all worked out.

Bachelorette crossed with American Idol. They even say that in the book.
