Favorite Quotes:

Entangle Me - Sydney by Maggie Way
I was supposed to marry the man of my dreams, ride off into the sunset and live happily ever after, but somehow it all unraveled like a ball of yarn. I just don't know who pulled the thread.

She taught me that crying is not only ugly, but it is also a waste of mascara. The last time I cried was when my grandmother, Betty, died. I was wearing waterproof mascara, though.

To say it out loud is tragic. Maybe I just didn't notice, or I chose not to notice but our sex life over the years went from the Amazon Rainforest to the Sahara Desert - hot and exotic to dry and welled up.

Of course I have to talk like an idiot, how else are you going to understand me?

Gentle giant, they used to call him in high school. Huge, colossal tool is more like it.

Sweetest Mistake by Amy Olle

I wasn't complaining. A quiet woman is like a mild winter. Both a rare and welcome relief.

It was the most special kiss of her life. The most special, intimate moment with a man that she'd ever experienced. So naturally, he had to ruin it. He pulled back. Smug satisfaction chased the heat from his face. 'So, how do you like me now?'

He was a Harley Davidson when she needed training wheels, but she wouldn't let her ignorance rob her of the chance to ride such a supreme vehicle.

You're a piranha... A small fish with a big bite.

Wedding Gift by Gemma Brocato

That's me. I came, I saw, I understated. I like it. Think I'll put that on a T-shirt.

She'd been a cheerleader and so damn pretty it had been hard to look at her. Stringing two words together in her presence had all by required divine intervention.

Men are basically boys at heart. And what boy doesn't want a dog?

The expectation in the air was thicker than fudge and not nearly as tasty

Consolation Prize by Abbie St. Claire

My water broke in the middle of the night, and I was happy one of us remained calm. And yes, that was me.

My Review:

You would think a wedding planner would have THE perfect wedding, and within the pages of Entangle Me - Sydney, the character of Lacey was on-track for just that... but during the rehearsal dinner, Lacey learned her love of six years had someone else in play. Cue record scratch. Despite the heartbreaking premise, the storyline also includes amusing banter and humorous inner musings. I enjoyed the characters and Ms. Ways writing style. The storyline was highly entertaining and easy to follow.

When I wasn't smirking from the clever hits of humor, my heart was constricted in a vise while reading the intensely emotive story of Sweetest Mistake by Amy Olle. It was an intriguing and engaging character study. The story was thoughtful, poignantly written, occasionally frustrating, frequently heartbreaking, smartly insightful, and observant of human nature.

Gemma Brocato also provided a highly relevant, sizzling, and thoughtful read with Wedding Gift. The writing squeezed my heart and triggered an interest to learn more about therapy animals. The main character was a military hero who returned from deployment with a wicked case of survivor's guilt and PTSD, which was derailing his integration back into civilian life and causing him to question the wisdom of going through a long-planned wedding to the love of his life. His fiance's gift of a therapy dog proved invaluable and life changing. And Ms. Brocato's sensual scenes were scorching hawt.

And speaking of atomically hot sensual scenes, Abbie St. Claire is a genius and I am a total fan girl. Consolation Prize was steamy, easy to read, contemporary, and immensely enjoyable. I wanted to personally know this couple and belong in their circle of friends as they seem lively and good fun. The only possible complaint I can raise about Ms. St. Claire's contribution to the anthology was that I wanted it to keep going into infinity, and was ever so sad to reach the end.

Reading the stories in this anthology, I couldn’t help but remember growing up when I was 13 years old that one of the songs I always heard being played on the radio in 1964 had been “Chapel of Love” being sung by The Dixie Cups. If you’re not familiar with the words because you’re too young, here are the lyrics.

Goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get ma-a-arried
Goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get ma-a-arried
Gee, I really love you
And we're gonna get ma-a-arried
Goin' to the chapel of love

Spring is here, th-e-e sky is blue, whoa-oh-oh
Birds all sing as if they knew
Today's the day we'll say "i do"
And we'll never be lonely anymore because we're

Because goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get ma-a-arried
Goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get ma-a-arried
Gee, I really love you
And we're gonna get ma-a-arried
Goin' to the chapel of love

Bells will ring, the-e-e sun will shine, whoa-oh-oh
I'll be his and he'll be mine
We'll love until the end of time
And we'll never be lonely anymore because we're

Because goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get ma-a-arried
Goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get ma-a-arried
Gee, I really love you
And we're gonna get ma-a-arried
Goin' to the chapel of love yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Goin' to the chapel of love yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Goin' to

Wedding Dreams is a delectable box set of 20 best selling-authors. An excellent introduction to new and well-known authors from angst, drama, sexy, heartbreaking, sexual tension and epically romantic stories. Excellent collaboration between authors. When great minds get together, the end result is priceless.

Wedding Gift by Gemma Brocato

Brocato brings us the story of Elle and Gage. Gage is a Captain in engineering battalion who returns home from Iraq. Elle is his fiancé, a kindergarten teacher and the love of his life. Gage is attempting to re-adjust to civilian life after his return. The growth and development of their relationship after so much angst. Compromises, sacrifices and trials they both encounter.
They have this picture of how it should be but every relationship is work. Characters feel real and have their own distinctive voice. Will Gage and Elle make it to the alter? Or will Sigmund make it in time to save Gage from his torment?
Incredible plot. The protagonists change throughout the story. Characters evolved in a positive way. The plot, pacing, and scenes were magnificent.
Without reservation, I recommend this book as a definite read.

Wedding Dreams a fabulous four Star-read. This is twenty stories all nuptial romance, each author tells a different story, some amazing, some not so amazing, I gave it a four overall as there were several five-star read, and one or two that I struggled to finish. I have written a short review of some of my favourites.
Kentucky Bluegrass Wedding by Lita Lawson – Fans of Foolish Gamble will love this story as we finally get to see simple stable girl Cassi Whitaker and her high society beau Austin Keller find their happy ever after, but will it be the simple and quiet affair that Cassi wishes or will her over bearing mother in law Bonnie take over and create and event of the decade that she wants?

But by a chance of fate someone overhears her stories and offers her the chance of a life time, become the next big reality TV star. In true Ruthie fashion, she signs on the dotted line and doesn’t read the small print, something she may live to regret. Ruthie will face many trials and tribulations ahead; the question is will she sink or will she swim.

When an invite to a bachelorette party drops in her email from her best friend since high school April, Chloe realises that she is now the last single girl standing. To make matters worse it’s in the one place that Chloe’s heart was broken, Moody’s bar, the reason she has been single so long. Flynn Davis spent years waiting for his lady to settle down and give him the family he was desperate for but when he gives up on the dream he is enjoying a night out with friends and then they play him and make a bet with him, $200 will change his life forever, but it may not lead to the outcome he thought.

This is the perfect book to snuggle up with on a cold rainy afternoon or when you are feeling a bit down. This book makes you fall in love, laugh and can even make you shed a tear.
There are 20 stories to absorb yourself in. The perfect book to binge with or read as when when you wish. The stories was very well written, each taking you along a different journey or fantasy. I would definitely recommend this book.

The stories are by Maggie Way, Iona Findley, Kristi Rose, K.M. Hodge, Lindzee Armstrong, Lita Lawson, Alix Nichols, Auriella Skye, Kate Allenton, Michelle Jo Quinn, Amy Olle, Amy Brent, Delshree Gladden, Gemma Brocato, Ann Marie Frohoff, Susan Ann Wall, Lexi Ostrow, Ann Omasta, Nicole Morgan, Abbie St Claire

Here is a bitesize of some of the stories:

Entangle Me Sydney By Maggie Way
This was the first book in the series and wow what a start to the book. It was the perfect read just before bed. She has an amazing way of creating a character and making you fall in love with her a little bit. After I read this I will admit I went online to find more of her books. 4****

A Seals Surprise Wedding by Iona Findley
This author really knows how to pull on a girls heart strings. Her fiancé has really set the bar of expectations for me now. A short but sweet story. 4****

Meyton Matchmakers Book 1 by Kristi Rose
I had to read this in one sitting. it was loosely based on pride and prejudice which is one of my favourite books of all time. (Do like the Colin Firth version as well!!) 4****

Something Borrowed by Lexi Ostrow
All I will say is every girl loves a gorgeous man in uniform Jaxon is a dream man for sure. It all begins with a wedding and a happy coincidence and we love a happy ending (I don’t want to say anything else in case I cause a spoiler alert) 4****

Sweetest Mistake by Amy Olle
HOT IRISH MEN ALERT – this is the second book in the series but can be read as a standalone. I did go out and purchase the whole my series once I had finished this. This story was really sweet with lots of parts to make you laugh. 4****

Mix 'N Match by Lindzee Armstrong
This story was a bit predictable in my opinion, two people meet that are polar opposites and you watch the sparks fly 3***
Kentucky Bluegrass Wedding by Lita Lawson
Bridezilla alert (one of these characters really frustrated me –guess which one) This was a perfect story for those wanting a chick lit light read with a lovely twist in the story.

I received a copy from one of the authors for an honest review. There has been no compensation.

Technically, I will be reading this collection throughout the year, but I wanted to go ahead and get a review out since I've finished one story and am on another in the collection (which I happen to have a separate InstaFreebie of as well). Some of the books in the collection actually have their own pages on Goodreads and Amazon and I figured if I do the collection little by little, I can also review the individual stories. That said, this doesn't mean I can't review what I've read so far.

What I decided to read first was Lexi Ostrow's Something Borrowed. I've read a lot of Ostrow's work and I am a fan of her work. She is an Indie author who specializes in erotic fiction, but all of her work deals with romance and characters. The sex scenes are steamy, but the romance between her characters is what makes her stories work.

Something Borrowed starts with a wedding and ends with a wedding. It's like a double dose of romantic bliss and a bridezilla in the mix. The male lead is Jaxon, the Marine brother of the first bride, Kailey. If he wasn't fictionally married in the end and was completely smitten with Adrianna, I would try to pull his fine ass out of the book.

Alas, Adrianna has the yummy morsel and she is well deserving. Yes, she acts like a woman in the midst of pitter patter love, but it doesn't change her. She is a newsanchor and keeps her cool in times of extreme stress. These two people seem like completely normal everyday people and I love that.

I would say more, but really . . . that would be spoiling. Instead, I will add that I'm now reading Meryton Matchmakers book one by Kristi Rose. It is also in the collection and is a modern retelling of a personal favorite, Pride and Prejudice.

Needless to say, this collection has a lot of different voices and different characters to keep my romantic heart pumping. 20 is a large number and it's going to take me a while, but . . . so far, I'm loving the journey.

Wedding Gift by Gemma Brocato provides a short look into the life of a tortured hero recently home from deployment and his supportive fiancee in the weeks leading up to their wedding.

As the sole survivor of a bombing and building collapse, Gabe has returned home with a severe case of survivor's guilt and PTSD. Gemma did a good job detailing the symptoms of Gabe's PTSD and it created a good emotional connection with his character. My heart went out to him for everything he was going through.

Emma, who loves Gabe unconditionally, was desperate to help him cope and start to heal. When she introduces therapy dog, Sigmund, I was a goner. I enjoyed the relationship building between Gabe and Sigmund, and seeing Gabe face his fears was moving.

This is a short story that may bring a tear to your eye... and my favorite aspect by far was Sigmund. I am impressed that Gemma packed so much emotion into a small package. The characters were mature and created a picture of how a supportive relationship should work.

I am voluntarily reviewing an advanced copy of this story that I received from the author.

Wedding Dreams: 20 Delicious Nuptial Romance Books by various authors is a fantastic series of some short stories and some novels. The Anthology includes the following books from these authors.
Entagle Me by Maggie Way - A SEAL's Surprise Wedding by Iona Findley - Maid of Honor by Kate Allenton - Love in Bloom by Michelle Jo Quinn - Sweetest Mistake by Amy Olle - Be MIne by Amy Brent - Memory's Edge by Delsheree Gladden - For the Love of Chocolate by Susan Ann Wall - Rhythm by Anne Marie Frohoff - Something Borrowed by Lexi Ostrow - The Wedding Gift by Gemma Brocato - Cruising for Love by Ann Omasta - The Best Man by Nicole Morgan - Consolation Prize by Abbie St. Claire

The following are reviews are a couple of the stories that were my favorite. EVERY one of the stories in this anthology is so wonderful! Each and every story was so sweet and gave me so many butterflies. Based off of the writers in this book, I will definitely be checking out other books by these authors. There were so many different stories, there were Scottish men (yummy), a modernized classic, some hunky service men, opposites attract, curvy women, CEO's and so on. I give this anthology 5 stars and would recommend to everyone who loves a good romance whether short and sweet or with a detailed story line.

Meryton Matchmakers Book 1 by Kristi Rose
Bill is a minister and helps with counseling at his friends' Lizzie and Jane's matchmaking company. He is not your usual minister, he likes stand up comedy and would rather be helping kids that have it bad off like he did when he was young, he is also a very oblivious person. Bill is working under the supervision of Lady Catherine whom funded his education and his life thus far, and now she has come to town with her daughter Anne and her nephew Darcy to have them help fix up the matchmaking company and bring it into the new age, or shut it down. Lottie is the owner of a bakery and she is in love with her childhood friend Bill. As a man of God she doesn't see how Bill could ever love someone like her, and she also doesn't think she is a good looking woman. While overcoming the annoyance of having this family come in and try to take over how the company is run, Lizzie decides to try some of their marketing tactics. She has Bill and Lottie fill out an online questionnaire to be put through their new screening process to see if they would be a match, they weren't. Lizzie wasn't happy enough with this answer and decided to try and fix Bill and Lottie up regardless, in the meantime Darcy made it known to her that because they are so opposite they would never match well and wouldn't work out. Lizzie is then out to prove him wrong, and that just because they are opposite doesn't mean love can't form and thrive. How will the relationship between Lottie and Bill pan out? Will Lizzie be able to prove Darcy wrong?

This book was perfect! I say that because I love any book that references Pride and Prejudice, and the fact that this story had Charlotte and Bill being actually in love and not just marrying for convenience made my heart palpitate! I can't wait to read book 2 and continue this modern version of a classic.

Save The Date by K.M. Hodge
Jolene is in the Navy as a doctor and is to be shipped out in 48 hours for 6 months. Also, in 24 hours she is marrying the love of her life Bennett in a couple hours.

The day of the wedding all the girls are getting ready and with her best friend and made of honor, Mary in tow they find out a secret that Jolene thinks will destroy her future with her soon to be husband. Putting this secret in the back of her mind her and Mary go back to getting ready when the news comes on and shows a plane hitting one of the world trade center towers. The girls are all in shock and are too stunned to move. While at the church they turn on the television to watch the news and see that another plane has hit the second world trade center.

Will the wedding go off without a hitch or will they have to cancel the wedding due to the circumstances? Will Bennett be able to accept her secret? Will the world recover?

This story was absolutely beautiful, as it tells the story of a wedding and what was happening during each stage of the fateful day when America was attacked. This made me stop and take a moment to remember that day and all the people that lost their lives during this disgusting attack on the USA. God Bless America!

Mix 'N Match by Lindzee Armstrong

Mitch is the best friend, best man and also personal secretary to Luke. Being that he is Luke's personal secretary, he is tasked with making sure the upcoming wedding does not get publicized, as the couple wants their even to be a small intimate setting. Mitch, while observing all of the guests at the engagement party he sees Zoey flirting with someone, and from the looks of it, he looks to be a reporter. This infuriates Mitch as he can't understand how she can't see what the guy is and mad that she is flirting with another guy. Due to Zoey's flirting, Alan shows up at Brooke's bachelorette party, which Mitch immediately thinks is Zoey's fault. Luke and Brooke then decided that they would have to send Mitch and Zoey to Paris to finalize all of their wedding plans to throw off the reporter. While in Paris they both see Alan and wonder how in the world he would know they were in Paris.
A few months earlier Mitch and Zoey shared a heated kiss which ended with Zoey leaving and expecting Mitch to call her, he never did. Due to a miscommunication, overthinking and not willing to talk it out, both of them ended up working together through this wedding but are harsh to each other. Both also are secretly craving the other but not willing to say it out loud. Trying to put this reporter off the trail of their wedding plans for the couple, they stage it so they are the couple getting married. Will the reporter ruin their friend's wedding? Will Mitch and Zoey be able to pull of a fake wedding and then go their separate ways, or will they finally admit their love for each other?

This book was too cute. The characters were nicely developed, and I thoroughly enjoyed watching the relationship between Mitch and Zoey.

The Wedding Dreams Anthology is put together by 20 short stories to complete this set. Many of themes authors I have not heard of but intrigued me.
1- Entangle Me “Sydney book 1 by Maggie Way
What an entertaining read! I enjoyed many aspects of this short story. Starting with two best friends making a getaway to discover just what makes them in need too. Lacy, a wedding planner is used to planning everyone else's happy day. Excited for her own day for it just to be ruined by her soon to be ex groom. Her best friend, Gabe picks up the pieces, trying to help the situation. Ready to confront her ex, she's confronted by her brother’s best friend. He has an offer that she can't refuse. I loved this read. Great chemistry! I would've loved more.

2- A Seal’s Surprise- Lona Findley
Who doesn’t like a hot alpha military man, and a SEAL at that. Con, a Navy SEAL is on leave and decides to surprise his fiance with a dream wedding. However, things keep getting in the way of him doing so. Vivi, the bride to be is in New Orleans with her best friend and sister for her bachelorette party. Things get crazy when Vivi becomes the target. One thing about this story is I had trouble with Vivi’s issues with all of a sudden needing more time for the wedding not knowing of the surprise. Clearly Con is a man in great love and ready to spend the rest of his life with the woman he loves. I really love the way Con loves Vivi.

3- Lottie Pursues Bill - Kristi Rose
This one went a little slow for me. Not knowing how to understand what was happening. I wanted to speed this one up a bit. This is the Meryton Matchmakers. A tale of business owners. One who will try and save it the other one who is against it. Mr. Darcy wants to meddle in the matchmaker's affairs. Lottie runs the town cafe. Bill helps Lottie run and or help out with the baking for her cafe. I think he likes Lottie in return and this becomes a reason to be near her. Everyone seems to be put off by Mr. Darcy who wants to disable the matchmakers. I think Mr. Darcy has other plans of his own.

4- Save The Date- K.M. Hodge
WOW! This one was a crazy ride. Bride to be, Jo starts off with her wild friends throwing her a bachelorette party. Man is her best friend something else. Jo, being a part of the Nave was set to deploy the day after her wedding. Which is crazy right?!? Her wedding day falls on September 11, 2001. A day that we all know too well. We get to read about Jo and her family’s events throughout that day while still trying to proceed with her wedding.

5- Mix - N- Match- Lindzee Armstrong
This story so far has been my favorite. A tale of complete opposites attract. Such a fun read. Zoey is best friends to Brooke who is a bride to be. Mitch, is the best man to the groom, Luke. This isn't any wedding, this is a celebrity affair. Trying to shake the paparazzi and reporters is quite the task. Making sure Brooke & Luke’s day is hidden from the paparazzi; Zoey and Mitch advise a plan to throw them off. I loved this short story. I loved the friendship, the determination from both friends. Zoey and Mitch finally start to see a different side of attractions. I will gladly read more from Lindzee Armstrong.

6- Kentucky Bluegrass Wedding - Lita Lawson
This was a wonderful tale for me. I read the novel prior to this novella, a “Foolish Gamble”. I fell in love with the characters then and my love has continued. Cassi and Austin return to give us a look into the preceeding up to their wedding. Seeing the plans to become Mr. & Mrs. Keller was an adventure. They have a horse business, that is where they fell in love and want to have their wedding take place. Now the groom’s mother has a different tune to sing. Cassi has to decide whether or not this is still something she wants or sees for herself. There wasn’t anything about this novella that I did not like. I really enjoyed the follow up to some of my favorite characters.

7- Under my skin- Alix Nichols, “La Boheme Series”

I could have kept reading more and more from these two people. I really liked them.

9- Maid of Honor- Kate Alenton
I know I know, here is another story that I fell in love with. I loved everything about it. I loved the story, the history and mystery it provided.

11- The sweetest mistake- “ A Nolan Brothers Novel” book 2. - Amy Olle
OK!! I loved this tale. It certainly got me hooked from the very beginning. This is a story that introduced me to the tales of the Nolan brothers. Which I will be reading shortly.

I believe I have found me a new author and new series. Can’t wait to dive in. You will love this book!

12- Be Mine- Amy Brent
HOLY MOLY! This one was HOT! If you can’t handle adult language and content then do not proceed. It was filled with it.

16- Something Borrowed- Lexi Ostrow

18- Cruising for Love- Ann Omasta
This is the second book in the “Escape Series”. What a better way to find love than on a cruise ship. Even better to have it take place with a reality tv show. WOW! I mean finding love and becoming a reality tv star… Ruthie is quite the character and we are taken on one heck of a ride on her love finding journey. Plenty of twists and turns on this cruise. I felt like it could be a standalone for sure. I will certainly be reading more from Ann Omasta.

“Once upon a time, I became yours, and you became mine…”

This anthology is all about love with each story centering on marriage in some way or another. Not all of the couples are the ones getting married, rather they are brought together because friends are getting hitched. Others are childhood loves that fate didn’t fix them up till they were older. There are many great authors featured, and several of the stories are a part of another series, novel, or novella series. This would be a great way to get introduced to a new author you may not have picked up before in the romance genera.

The titles and the authors featured are listed below, and following that is a short review of five of my personal favorites that spoke out to me more so than some of the others.
Maggie Way, Iona Findley, Kristi Rose, K.M. Hodge, Lindzee Armstrong, Lita Lawson, Alix Nichols, Auriella Skye, Kate Allenton, Michell Jo Quinn, Amy Olle, Amy Brent, Delsheree Gladden, Susan Ann Wall, Ann Marie Frohoff, Lexi Ostrow, Gemma Brocato, Ann Omasta, Nicole Morgan, Abbie St. Claire.

Entangle Me by; Maggie Way
“Have you ever had a kiss that breathed life into your soul? That ignited a fire inside you? That sends you into the most beautiful free fall? Because that happened to me on my wedding day. Except, it wasn’t with the man I was meant to marry.”
Lacey was set to marry the love of her life. Or so she thought. “The biggest day of my life didn’t happen. I was supposed to marry the man of my dreams, ride off into the sunset and live happily ever after, but somehow it all unraveled like a ball of yarn. I just don’t know who pulled the thread.” Lacey is a perfectionist, she has lists for her lists, and that makes her one of the best wedding, last minute ones to be exact, planners in Sydney, Australia. She is happy as can be that she will finally have the wedding she dreamed of and have a chance to be the princess for a day. That all goes to the crapper when she discovers a handwritten note in her fiancé’s suit pocket during the rehearsal supper. It isn’t her handwriting and it is certainly not a business note, or dry cleaner slip. Everything is halted and her best friend, Gabe and her delve into work. While working on a few weddings and trying to forget her ex she stumbles upon an old crush and family friend. “Tristan? Hansley’s friend? My brother’s best friend all through high school, he was the most annoying person and I had to deal with him constantly… Oh yeah, and I had a MAJOR crush on him. I would always get so nervous and jittery whenever he came to our place, which was often.” Does fate have a way of giving us exactly what we need and when we need it? Could her real true love have always been right in front of her and she ignored it? “I just kissed another man that wasn’t Adam. On the day that was supposed to be my wedding. And I liked it.”

Save the Date by; K.M. Hodge
This particular short was a very touching piece and incorporated a tragic time that most Americans can relate to and will forever be engrained into our memories. I thought that this was so beautifully written and enjoyed how K.M. Hodge really made the love of the two getting married the focus, even when it was not the best time for a wedding.
Jolene and Bennett are set to be married by the end of the day, September 11th, 2001. This is a most impromptu wedding as both Jolene and her maid of honor, Mary, are set to deploy for six months on the hospital ship for the NAVY. This wedding has to happen and it cannot be stalled. What starts out as a day of making memories is soon tarnished by the terror attacks on our nation that day of September 11th, 2001. “The news left a somber tone in the room like a balloon had been popped… A selfish thought ran through her mind, that her wedding day would forever be marred by this tragedy. This is how her new life would start. Not in a simple and sweet way as they planned, but rather a punch in the gut… Her world seemed upside-down and inside out.” Despite all that is going on around them, love conquers and the two manage to get the wedding pulled off, with a few wrenches thrown in the original plan.

Mix N’ Match: A No Match for Love Novella by; Lindzee Armstrong
This novella starts off with the planning of a wedding for Brooke and her rich and famous business tycoon, Luke. The problem with wanting to have a very elaborate wedding and having fame, is the paparazzi. Zoey and Mitch are the best friends to the couple and the maid of honor and best man. They will go to very great lengths to make sure that their friend’s wedding goes off without a single leaked photo or messy group of paparazzi looming over their heads. Quickly the story begins to lean more towards Zoey and Mitch, and the undeniable chemistry that exists between them. Only problem is they are complete opposites, and both very afraid of committing and getting hurt. “Zoe was a flurry of energy and excitement. She was everything he wasn’t- charismatic, bubbly, spontaneous. After they first met, he’d found himself making excuses to talk to her and for a while he’d thought she was as drawn to him as he was to her.” “If they had dated, Mitch would’ve tried to change her. Heck, they weren’t anywhere close to dating, and he’d flat-out told her she needed to act differently… He was attracted to her body, but he didn’t want her.” Planning the wedding of someone else in the city of love, Paris doesn’t necessarily make it that easy to play coy to love, and deny what is so obvious. “How many moments are we going to get caught up in before you admit that this is real?” “I’m not afraid. Except she was afraid of everything. She knew how to be spontaneous, how to live in the moment. How to enjoy life. But she didn’t know how to do the hard stuff. The serious stuff. The relationship stuff.” This was a fun little read and definitely had me wanting to find more by Lindzee Armstrong.

Under My Skin: La Boheme Series by; Alix Nichols
This is definitely one for the fans of the triangle love scenarios. Jeanne is a devoted barista at the La Boheme café. She has her goals of taking over and purchasing the café from her boss when he decides to retire here in the next year or so. It is during the wedding of her friend Rob, that used to work with her at the café, and his fiancé Lena, that Mat is introduced into the picture. “I’m sorry… Are you sure we’ve met?” “Every day for almost two years.” Mathieu Gerard has had a crush on Jeanne for years. Only problem is now that he has his life on track and looks the part, he is attached and really can’t leave his girlfriend at the moment, for fear it would ruin him and his chances of a political career as a Mayor for his town. “Cecile is my Pygmalion. I’m not exaggerating. She’s molding me into a winner. She corrects my speeches, picks my suits… I couldn’t do this without her.” Jeanne immediately worries that she has more feelings than what is appropriate for Mat. “How weird to burn like this or someone I barely noticed three years ago.” Mat is also struggling to keep his mind focused on his life and girlfriend. “The crush he’d thought long-gone was alive and kicking. Right where it hurt.” The story follows month by month for about a year and a half. Both Jeanne and Mat have many internal struggles and even slip up and have some physical contact with each other. Will they figure out what is really supposed to be between them? What is so obviously, a true soulmate type of love. Or will Mat ruin everything just when things get started? “I’ve never had a one-night stand in my life… I’ve never desired a woman only for her body. And you… you’re amazing in every way, Jeanne. If I sleep with you, I’ll want more. I’ll disappear from your life completely. I’ll stay away from La Boheme, from Rob and Lena’s events, and from Amanda’s too. It’s the only way…. You’ll forget me before the summer’s out… Take good care, Jeanne.” “No, you take care. Take very good care of yourself and your perfect girlfriend. She’ll make you such a fitting wife.” This was one juicy novella.

Rhythm: A Heavy Influence Novella by; Ann Marie Frohoff
This is an author that I had read before and actually other novellas in this series. I was really excited to see more of the characters I had previously read about and get a bit of an update on where they are. It also told the love story of a new point of view, Grace. Grace was left widowed by her husband a few years ago due to a tragic plane crash. It is just her and her son, Ethan, and the pseudo family that they have created amongst friends. “I missed Phillip so much, his laugh, his touch, his warmth, and the strength of his love for me. He truly did love me. Phillip loved me how men are supposed to love women… When Ethan’s grown, it will be m time for love.” All of that seems to change when an ex-lover and quite possibly the only man she could ever love like she did her deceased husband, Kai walks into her life again. Mordechai Burton, the swoon-worthy drummer of her friends’ band. “He was the sexiest drummer ever to exist… I wasn’t sure why I was shaken. I knew I felt desire between us but the yearning for it, him, was almost maddening. I couldn’t remember the last time I’d felt like that.” Does she let her conscious self, make the decision to love again, or will the past and her grief get in the way of a second chance at love? “Because it wasn’t right, that’s why Kai was not the right man for me. He’d proven that a long time ago.”

You've got a sexy Wall Street shark, a Navy SEAL, a cowboy and so much more. If you loves weddings and you love a good romance, these are the stories for you. I was expecting short stories throughout this anthology but most are not short stories. They are novellas. It's worth the read.

Wedding Dreams Anthology

5 stars

I really do love an anthology and the Wedding Dreams Anthology was no exception! It was filled with a collection 20 great stories about love and weddings. Stories included themes such as second chances, unlikely romances and sometimes when things don’t go the way they should have! Each story was different and I really enjoyed reading them all. There were some new authors to me in this book along with a couple of authors whose work I have read and loved previously! I think the one thing I really like about this book over other anthologies that I have read is that all of the books were a decent length. Some were the start of stories that I can’t wait to go and finish and others were complete novellas. All of them were really well written and I found myself easily drawn into all of them. Out of the 20 wonderful stories I have tried to choose some of my favourites to review but they were all enjoyable 4 or 5 star reads.

Love in Bloom by Michelle Jo Quinn
I loved this story! It was really well written and had a great pace to it. This was one of them complete novellas in the anthology. The story centres on a flower shop and is about Morgan, a 40 something divorcee and her grumpy boss Darwin, who is a widow. There was some tension between these two from the start and I loved reading their story! Morgan was a really great character; she was kind and caring and turned up to work every day even though her boss wasn’t particularly nice to her. As the story progresses we find out just why he is so rude and grumpy all the time. There were some really emotional moments from both characters. This story was a really nice, sweet read!

Entangle Me by Maggie Way
This is the first book in the anthology and its get us off to a great start! I really enjoyed this story and I can’t wait to read the next part to it! The story is about wedding planner Lacey who is looking forward to her big day and finally marrying her fiancé Adam, except things don’t quite go to plan! I really felt for Lacey in this story – things just didn’t go her way! I loved the support she had from her best friend and business associate Gabe – he was a great character! Then we get Tristan, Lacey’s brother’s best friend! I loved the love/hate relationship between the two of them! He also sounded extremely hot!! I am certainly going to be looking for the next part to this story so I can see what happens with Lacey next!

Kentucky Bluegrass by Lita Lawson
Having read a book by this author before I couldn’t’ wait to get into this one and I wasn’t disappointed! It is a follow on to another book called Foolish Gamble which I haven’t ready but definitely will go back to now. Even though I hadn’t read it there was sufficient background information in the story that I could understand what had happened between the two characters previously. This story is another complete novella in the anthology too. Cassie and Austin are finally getting married. In this story we follow their preparations to the big day but they are not plain sailing. There were some great twists and turns in the story that I didn’t see coming. There was so much story packed into this novella – I think that author did a great job!

Rhythm by Ann Marie Frohoff
I was so excited when I found this novella in the anthology! Having read the authors Heavy Influence series I couldn’t wait to read Grace’s story! This could also be read as a standalone as Grace isn’t a main character in the series. This novella was however everything I have come to expect from this author! It was brilliantly written, had unexpected twists and turns and few surprises thrown in there too! I loved Kai – I mean come on anyone who sings to you the way he did to Grace has me swooning over him! This story was definitely second chance romance at its best! I liked Grace from the previous stories, she was clearly really reluctant to start anything with Kai because she was still grieving the loss of her husband and she only remembers Kai from when he was much younger! It was really nice to see Jake and Alyssa appear in the story too! Another fabulous story from this author – I loved it!

The Best Man by Nicole Morgan
I really liked this story! This was also a complete novella in the anthology! The story is about Avery and Jackson! I loved Avery from the very beginning; there was just something about her character that I felt a connection too. The two characters meet when they are both attending the wedding of their respective beat friends! Jackson is tasked with picking Avery up at the airport after the bride and groom have a little argument! I liked Jackson too even if he didn’t do the right thing by Avery to begin with and it took him a while to get his act together! This story is one of those that I would happily have read a full length version of – I really enjoyed it!!

Consolation Prize by Abbie St. Claire
This was a lovely romance story! It was one of those stories that after you have finished it you feel all warm and fuzzy inside! The story is about Chloe and Flynn. Chloe is a vet who looks after the horses at a local farm. Having been hurt in her previous relationship she isn’t happy to find her friend’s bachelorette party is going to be in the very place she caught he boyfriend cheating and the outfit she had to wear is particularly revealing! Flynn is on a night out with his friends who have bet him that he won’t find a woman to hook up with! Both Chloe and Flynn aren’t looking for anything they night they go out separately! I actually think Flynn was my favourite out of this story! He was a perfect gentleman! He looked for Chloe after what happened between them and there were some particularly romantic gestures on his part!

Overall I thought this anthology was brilliant. All of the stories were enjoyable reads and the ones above were just some of my favourites! I would happily read more by any of the authors! If you enjoy contemporary romance stories then you will certainly like this wonderful collection of stories! I highly recommend it!

The authors included in this anthology are Maggie Way, Ioan Findley, Kristi Rose, K.M. Hodge, Lindzee Armstrong, Lita Lawson, Alix Nichols, Auriella Skye, Kate Allenton, Michelle Jo Quinn, Amy Olle, Amy Brent, DelSheree Gladden, Susan Ann Wall, Ann Marie Frohoff, Lexi Ostrwo, Gemma Brocato, Ann Omasta, Nicole Morgan and Abbie St. Claire.

This is a fun quick read. Lacey’s rehearsal dinner turns into a complete disaster, but her reaction to Adam is laugh-out-loud funny. He is so awful that you can’t help but laugh.

Lacey … GO GIRL POWER! She’s a bit sassy and determined but a romantic at heart. You can’t help but like her for the mere fact that she doesn’t allow her a**hole ex-fiance destroy her spirit.

Gabe is the fantastic gay best friend/business partner. He brings a bit of levity to the situation.

Looking forward to getting to know Tristan better in the next book in the series.

The only thing that would have made this better, is if I were drinking a glass a wine along with the characters. Oh, maybe some chocolate, too. (If Lacey gets to imbibe, I should, too)

Wedding Dreams Anthology

5 Stars Review

This was my second anthology and let me tell you I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one. I seriously love anything wedding related so this anthology was perfect for me! The variety of the stories will surely pull you in; they aren’t all about the bride and groom, which definitely came as a nice little surprise for me. These stories are scandalous, sexy, funny, romantic, sweet, and obviously filled with all kinds of love.

A Seal’s Surprise Wedding by Iona Findley was a fantastic read! I experienced many emotions while reading this one, frustration, anger, joy and of course happiness. On the night of her bachelorette party Vivi is put in an unthinkable situation, and when her super sexy fiancé Conner finds out he almost loses it. Being a Seal means he wants to protect everyone and that especially means the love of his life. Everything seems to crumble from this point forward, trust is broken, dangerous situations arise and the fights start to become too much for Vivi. The stress of the weekend causes her to rethink their whole relationship, which leaves Conner trying to fight for their love.

Save the Date by K.M. Hodge was honestly so incredible! It is not at all like any typical wedding story. It seemed like one of the most chaotic wedding days. Jolene and Bennett’s wedding day had been put together under short notice due to her upcoming deployment, they had it all planned to take place on September 11, 2001. We all know what that day symbolizes, as the girls are getting ready they hear the devastating news of the terrorist attack, this quickly throws the day off kilter, given the circumstances they decide to go through with the wedding. As the day goes on all kinds of surprising information is revealed, leading it to be one of the most unique wedding days ever.

This story was so original, totally nothing like anything I’ve ever read. The characters all seem relatable and the storyline is all kinds of crazy. Thank you K.M. Hodge for taking us on an unforgettable ride.

Mix ‘N Match by Lindzee Armstrong was a fantastic read. I absolutely loved this story. Zoey and Mitch are complete opposites but they couldn’t be a more perfect match. Zoey is a free spirited woman who takes risks and doesn’t always do the right thing but she certainly knows how to live the life she wants. Mitch is an organized, bossy, straight-laced man. He takes care of everyone and his life is more business then pleasure. Zoey is everything Mitch needs and vice versa. They start to really develop feelings for one another as they try to organize the wedding of their best friends dreams. The saying opposites attract is perfect for the two of them, and what better place to fall in love then Paris?

A Chocolate Kind of Love is a delicious story by Auriella Skye. “Love was for fools.” Well apparently Tonya and Hudson are the biggest fools of all. After spending the night together that ended badly they are now forced to work with one another for one of the biggest weddings in town. As they start to work together the tension becomes sexual until they finally give in to their desires. It ends up being everything they remember it being. They have both dealt with terrible relationships in the past but they know what they have is truly authentic and sweet.

This story felt too short for me; I wanted to read more about Tonya and Hudson. While their relationship changed quickly their love for each other was strong and everlasting, definitely swoon worthy.

Be Mine by Amy Brent is a super steamy romance. Shortly after graduating from business school small town girl Alexandra Hart receives the call of a lifetime, she just landed a job as a junior analyst for Shaw Investments. During employee orientation she catches the eye of Cameron Shaw, owner and CEO of Shaw Investments. Cameron finds himself very attracted to Alex and immediately tries everything in his power to get to her. On the night of an auction they spend the night together. From this point forward Cameron rethinks everything he’s ever wanted. Their relationship moves from 0-100 really quickly, the saying love at first sight is definitely real in their case.

Something Borrowed was an absolutely beautiful story. Lexi Ostrow did an incredible job with telling this one. Adrianna has had feelings for her best friends older brother for as long as she can remember. Jaxon has also felt the same way. Even after 10 years the sparks are still there. While being away on deployment Jaxon grew up to be a very thoughtful and serious man with less of an ego. Their time has finally come, although starting off a relationship during deployment is tough. Their ever-growing love remains strong.

I absolutely adored Adrianna and Jaxon together, they were a perfect match. Plus who doesn’t love a good best friends older sibling kind of love. This story was very relatable and it was honestly just such a beautiful story.

One would think that after reading so many wedding stories in a row they would become predictable but that is definitely not the case here, some of these stories completely took me by surprise. No two stories are the same and they all vary in length. This anthology will give you all the wedding feels you’ll need for a long time. Thank you to all these incredible authors for providing us with the perfect wedding anthology: Maggie Way, Iona Findley, Krisit Rose, K.M. Hodge, Lindzee Armstrong, Lita Lawson, Alix Nichols, Auriella Skye, Kate Allenton, Michelle Jo Quinn, Amy Olle, Amy Brent, Delsheree Gladden, Susan Ann Wall, Ann Marie Frohoff, Lexi Ostrow, Gemma Brocato, Ann Omasta, Nicole Morgan, and Abbie St.Claire.

Wedding Dreams

Sydney (Entangle Me) – Maggie Way
This was a fun read that make me chuckle it has a great plot which I totally enjoyed. One wedding planner coming right up with her trusty assistant along with one groom oops lets recheck that….. minus one groom he made one big mistake (What a total asswipe). Leaving the wedding planner going off with the assistant to tie one on and do some male bashing. One thing leads to another and she runs into her brother’s best friend who puts an offer on the table to good to walk away from. Wonder what he is offering hum I do hope it is something tasty and exciting. Things get pretty hot here with sparks flying. The chemistry is off the wall as these two take a walk along the wild side.

This was a fun read that made me laugh as one ex is put in his place as he is kicked to the curve with one man (Tristan) walking in making for some exciting read. I really liked Lacey she is a strong women who really grabs your attention. The characters are very likable, with a good plot. I thought this was well written keeping my attention. I did think it started out a little slow but didn’t take long to pick up getting me hooked in the story. It does end in a little of a cliffhanger. I am really looking forward to reading the rest of this series.

A Seal’s Surprise Wedding – Iona Findley
This one left me a little confused with who wants the bride. I thought it moved a little fast at times but was a good read that did keep me entertained. The title tells it all one seal takes leave and gives the bride a surprise wedding. The question is if the bride is ready.

Lottie Pursues Bill (Meryton Matchmakers #1)
A modern spin on Pride and Prejudice. I thought it was a little slow but a good read. I have never been that fond of Pride and Prejudice. Other loved it as I am sure a lot of you will this one.

Save The Date – K.M Hodge
This is one story that brings back lots of memories I remember that day just like it was yesterday. What a touching, emotional, heartbreaking, sweet, loving read that has more drama then you can shake a stick at. This is the first I have read of this authors work and I totally love it. I was pulled in almost from the first page. The author takes a sad time that broke our hearts with two people who get married on 9-11 and all the sadness that day brings them along with the happiness. There are a lot of twists and turns that keep the reader entertained and invested in this wonderful read. What a crazy day for them in more ways than one, there was a few times I even chuckled and a few that were very sad. The only issue I had is it wasn’t long enough and doesn’t tell us what happens down the road. I still have to say you really do not want to miss this story it was a wonderful read.

Mix ‘N Match – Lindzee Armstrong
I have not read the other books in this series but did not feel I needed to. The author gives you a delightful read of just what the title said. Mitch and Zoey are mix match totally opposites but that is what makes this book such a wonderful read. I loved the humor, laughed and chuckled my way through it. I would have liked a little more information at the end but since this is a series I might get my wish if the next book comes out it might take up where this one let off. I thought it was a great read with wonderful characters that kept you smiling. It was well written with wonderful characters you can relate to. I loved the bricking it really added to the story. Passion was there strong hot very clean but you have no doubt how they feel.

Kentucky Bluegrass Wedding – Lita Lawson
I really enjoyed this book it is kind of poor girl meets rich boy and they fall in love. They are planning their wedding with a mother who wants it all her way. This couple has one major down that has to be worked out before they can have up time. The wedding planner is a dream come true. The mother I never really got a true feel for her. She is one way and next she is another way. I would have loved to have seen them a few years down the road but the ending was wonderful leaving you with a feeling of peace and smiling.

Under My Skin (Bistro La Bohème #4) - Alix Nichols
Met Mat and Jeanne who can’t seem to leave each other alone. Mat has lusted after Jeanne since his younger days when he was a nerd and Jeanne didn’t want anything to do with him. He was weird and just not her type. Fast forward 10 or so years Mat comes back becoming a hunk leaving both with lust in their eyes. Mat must decided what he wants in life whether that be Jeanne or another women. This was a cat and mouse games that was entertaining with likable characters that have issues. At times I felt for Mat but as he takes off it is a little harder to like him with how he handles issues. Both do their best at times to leave the other alone which can be very hard. These characters are wishy washy with their two steps forward and one step back. Mat’s girlfriend is something else I think she is more along for the ride and power play. A cute read that keeps you on your toes.

This anthology included short stories by 20 great authors. Some stories were a bit longer then others. I had a few that I enjoyed much more then others. If you want sweet happy swoon worthy books then this is just what you need to read.

Under My Skin by Alix Nichols was about true love and devotion. Mat was always the geeky toad eyed nerd who had the hots for Jeanne. They didn't see eachother for a few years until he was the best man and she was the maid of honor at Rob and Lena's wedding. Mat looks nothing like he did years back. Now he is tall, muscular, and very good looking. It just so happens that Rob and Mat were best friend and so was Lena and Jeanne. Once Jeanne and Mat ran into eachother again at the engagement party they both became obsessed with eachother. Only problem was Mat had a live-in serious girlfriend.
Can these 2 escape their attraction for eachother or will hearts be broken?

Another one I enjoyed in this anthology was Kentucky Bluegrass Wedding by Lita Lawson.
Austin Keller was heir the Keller Farms and currently engaged to Cassi Whitaker. Ironically Austin was dating a woman named Annie Mae and she had given away a gift he had given her. The gift was a horse named Foolish Gamble and Annie Mae gave the horse to Cassi. It's funny how life works. Cassi isn't from the same social circle as Austin or Annie Mae and isnt used to being in the spotlight. When a picture of Cassi is leaked of her in the wedding gown she had chosen, she freaks out. She firmly believes it is bad luck for the groom to see the gown before the wedding. Austin surprised Cassi with a trip to NYC for the most romantic night and then to visit a bridal salon the next day to find a new wedding gown.
Cassi and Austin want to have a small, intimate wedding but Austin's mother is friends with everyone as well as being involved with the Lexington Ladies League. She tries to have everything planned her way but, Jasmine the wedding planner somehow manages to make everyone happy with the ideas and plans she has for the wedding.

Mix n' Match by Lindzee Armstrong was another one of the stories I enjoyed in this anthology.

What lengths would the maid of honor and best man go to in order to keep everything calm, quiet and off the radar for their best friends wedding?

The paparazzi is dying to get information or more importantly pictures of the upcoming wedding of the CEO Luke Ryder and his fiancé Brooke. Somehow Alan, a man Zoey meets at a charity gala seems to be following them and everyone thinks somehow Zoey is the reason he is able to follow them everywhere. Zoey and Mitch ( Luke's personal assistant ) need to go to Paris for 2 weeks alone together to distract Alan. What Mitch and Zoey do for Luke and Brooke is above and so far beyond any normal best man/ maid of honor duties.

The Best Man by Nicole Morgan was also a good read focusing on the best man Jackson Parks and maid of honor Avery Foster. Both were not expecting the other to be so attractive. They only met at the airport when Jackson was there to pick up Avery as a favor to the groom. The rehearsal was the next day and then the wedding was the day after. Avery gave in to Jackson’s charms only to get her heart broken. What happens when your heart is broken by your best friend's husband’s best friend?? Your bound to see him again even if that's the last thing in the world you want.

Consolation Prize by Abbie St. Claire was another one of my favorites in this book.
Dr. Chloe Howard's has been working a lot and doing nothing else for the last three years since her heart was broken. Then she met Flynn Davis at a bar. She had colored her hair pink and gave a fake name but ending up going home with him that night. That one night stand ended up as a fail especially when she woke up naked and realized she didn't know where she was and ran out of there before Flynn woke up. To bad for her, Flynn has his ways of finding people. She wasn't very hard to find.

Avery is to be the maid of honor and Jackson the best man. They instantly click and after one amazing night Jackson makes a decision that will haunt him for years. He finally has the chance to ask for forgiveness and a second chance but Avery is not just going to give in and forgive him so easily. This was a great story that I was sad to see end, there was so many unanswered questions that could have turned this book into a great novel. This story is definitely intended for readers over 18 due to adult content and language.

  This is the perfect collection of stories to read while cuddled up on the couch with a cup of coffee and just get lost for hours. Overall I give this collect 4 stars and I'm very excited that I have found some new favorite authors.

Mix 'N Match by Lindzee Armstrong
This is a fun and charming read. This is the 5th book in her No Match for Love series. It is a standalone novel, you do not have to read the first few books to understand what is happening. The way Lindzee Armstrong describes some of the places in the novella, you would think that you are in France yourself instead of reading about the places. Her characters are charming and will make you laugh.
Entangle Me by Maggie Way
Wedding planner Lacey finally gets her day. After years of giving every girl her dream wedding, Lacey finally gets to plan her own with the help of her best friend Gabe. This novella is filled with love and lots of DRAMA. Maggie Way will make you laugh and then she will make you want to strangle the groom to be because of what he does. But wait, Ms. Way isn’t done yet. She will also have you saying way to go, girl, when Lacey finally realizes that she is happy.
A SEAL's Surprise Wedding by Iona Findley
This novella will have you ready to strangle the main male character. Yes, he is the alpha type but some of the things he does will make you want to. However, Iona Findley is a wonderful writer because not only does she draw you in the story but she will have you wondering what is going on in the first few paragraphs of this stunning work.
Save the Date by K.M. Hodge
Everyone knows what happened on 9/11. K.M. Hodge has taken an extremely sad and depressing day and tried to make it a happy one for her characters. Not a lot of authors would try and undertake this type of project and Hodge has succeeded. When one thing after another keeps going wrong, the best thing to do is find the one you love and hold on to them and never let them go. This is a heartwarming and touching story of how love will always find a way.
Consolation Prize by Abbie St. Claire
What happens when you have a bachelor (that doesn’t do love) and a spirited bachelorette bet each other and it gets out of hand. Does it change anything? Abbie St. Clair is a wonderful author that had me laughing the entire time I was reading this novella. What better way for a pick me up when you are feeling blue than to read about weddings.

Almost every girl has a vision of what she wants for her wedding. Sometimes as that little girl grows up those visions change. More often than not the girl gets her happily ever after. In this anthology there are 20 stories of weddings. While some of the stories are a little far fetched, all of show how much love a couple has for each other and the lengths they will to in order to get the wedding they dreamed of.

Entangle Me by Maggie Way is about a wedding planner named Lacey. After many years of giving every girl her dream wedding, Lacey finally gets to plan her own. Her boyfriend of six years is exactly who she wants to be married to. But on the day before the wedding of her dreams, everything goes wrong. Then a hero shows up in the unlikeliest form and everything is right again. Or is it? I really loved this story, or should I say teaser because I really need more of this story!

A SEAL's Surprise Wedding by Iona Findley is a story that whoa, I really didn’t think was going to be like that. There is a lot of angst and heart ache in this short story! It is the first book of the Bride’s of the Belle Series so I am looking forward to reading more. Vivi is the bride to be with Con her husband to be. He is a Navy SEAL and certain things need to happen when and how he says. But Vivi has plans of her own. These characters are very strong willed and ready for anything, or so it seems. A great adventurous read!

Save the Date by K.M. Hodge is a story with a date that everyone remembers, 9-11. Terrorists may kill many people but they can’t and won’t stop happiness and love. Jolene is a medic in the army, on leave to get married. Her wedding date is September 11. Little does she know things go from bad to worse throughout the day. Her husband to be, Bennett is her rock. I loved this story in that this couple shows so much strength at a time when we as a country had very little.

Meryton Matchmakers by Kristi Rose is an intricate story about several people. Elizabeth, Lydia, Kitty, Mary, Jane, Bill, Mr. Darcy just to name a few. Many of these characters work at the matchmaking company in town. They are struggling to save the company against the ��silent” partner. They must show that love is worth a chance. Cute story.

Love in Bloom is by Michelle Jo Quinn. Darwin is a flower shop owner and Morgan is his employee. They both have loved and lost so they are not looking for a happily ever after. They sell flowers for all occasions and after a very busy Valentine’s Day at the shop Darwin finally shows Morgan what he’s been secretly working on. And does this change everything!

Each couple, whether engaged or just looking for love, face quite the adventure in order to get to their happily ever after. Each couple proves how worth it love can be. My heart is full from these stories! You cant go wrong by giving these author's a chance!
