My first from this author.
I like how the H/h started their relationship and being adult about it.
No insta in here! No stupid tantrums or cheesy story about how you end up with a jilted groom, then questioning yourself if you are a second best either.
I feel sorry little bit for the runaway bride, but it was obvious she and the hero wanted to marry in the first place for the wrong reasons.
This is a series about 4 women but I didn’t find a problem reading this one as a st ...more
I devoured these pages, I was sucked in as soon as I read the first page and I never looked back. Shannon and Victor’s story was so great from the very beginning that you couldn’t help but feel the need to get to t ...more
The woman friendship done right, their wit and bantering, the good men they get paired with, the chemistry and resulting steam and the dash of mistery thrown in the mix that keeps me on my toes... I NEED THIS BOOK NOW. I NEED MORE

Catherine proves time and time again why she is a one-click, go-to author for me with every book she releases. This book was no exception.
Shannon has always been the quiet one of the group, measuring up her words and watching from the sidelines, now however she is the main focus of this book and we get to learn so much more about her.
Victor has worked hard to build his business up from the ground while he was still living at ...more
ohh Shannon… you have always been my quiet lost favorite girl. A girl who fell in love with her husband and he tossed her away. I feel each time I read a first wives club book I say.. I LOVED THIS .. and this is also no exception. I have no idea why this author is such an amazing writer and has seemed to even write grocery lists I cant stop reading. Her writing style has intrigue, comedy, attraction and each book has its own story and there is not much repeated anywhere. I ...more

Faking Forever put a smile on my face and a thrill in my heart with the fiery match up in this fourth book in Catherine Bybee’s phenomenal First Wives series. A meet-cute that went awry and an attraction that was ill-timed, this romance was one heck of an enjoyable heartfelt ride!
Catherine Bybee can do no wrong as far as I’m concerned. With every new book, series and bunch of characters we meet, I ...more
“Give me three months and then give me a chance. Wait for me. Let me be the next man to kiss these lips.”
Some of my favourite reads have been of the unplanned kind, where the book somehow ‘found’ me, rather than the other way around, but it doesn’t happen all too often that a single book sends me down the rabbit hole in such a way that before I know it, I’ve not only read the whole series, but purchased the author’s ENTIRE back catalogue, too. From the moment I read the blurb, I knew this st ...more
I have been waiting for Samantha's story ever since the very first First Wives book published. She is such a sympathetic heroine and the situation of making a business-like agreement in marriage but then falling in love with her husband anyway is one that every reader can understand. Yet three yea ...more
I had been eagerly awaiting Shannon's story. She was one of the few "wives", who actually fell in love during her arranged marriage, but unfortunately, the feeling wasn't mutual. I so wanted her to move past her heartbreak and find her HEA, and I absolutely adored the man she was paired with.
Victor seemed an unlike ...more
I just love the First Wives, Shannon, Lori, Avery and Trina. I couldn’t tell you which book was my favorite since they were all special in their own way. BUT I may have liked Avery’s story an itsy-bitsy more than the other 3. Love the husbands too, Wade, Reed, Liam, and soon to be Shannon’s husband, Victor. I did like Shannon. She was less brash and less of a chance-taker than all the rest. So she was totally different that the others’.
AND I’m glad she found out what an ass he ex, Paul, was. Wh ...more
She and the hero, Victor, start out really, really annoyed by each other. Shannon finds nothing about him to appreciate. He's a workaholic who can't even give his time to his supposed-to-be wife long enough to go on the honeymoon. He's ...more
