Welcome to Little Bridge, one of the smallest—and most beautiful—islands in the Florida Keys, home to sandy white beaches, salt-rimmed margar...more
This book is basically a super short teaser for Cabot’s new Little Bridge Island series, which if I have my information straight will launch in September.
The story is entirely too short, with no plot, no character development, no chemistry, or humor – or…. Well, you get the picture.
Roberta is a fitness trainer who meets Sheriff Deputy Ryan when he stumbles into her bridal camp yoga class by mistake. Lust leads to a super quick h ...more
i dunno, a novella about 2 characters no one knows or cares about is risky and it didn't really pay off in this case. i mean there was nothing offensive or awful about this novella but like... 90-something pages does not make me invested in a relationship and there wasn't enough sex to make this just a fun smutty read...
i wouldn't recommend this
Not perfect, though, I don't think. It cuts off a bit abruptly and before I think the romance truly culminated. And the lone sex scene intruded on that a bit. So four stars, but I'm really looking forward to the next b ...more
While I wasn’t into this, I am interested in picking up the first official book in the series coming out later this month.

But this one, I'm still here thinking; is this really Meg Cabot?
A super brief but very cute story to introduce us to Meg Cabot’s new series, Little Bridge Island, there was enough humor and sparks of attraction to make Bridal Boot Camp a highly entertaining read.
I’m not kidding when I say this was quite a short story. Bridal Boot Camp was under one hundred pages, but it kept up a steady pace to pack in a lot of information–and was a great way to meet the locals on Little Bridge Island. This focused mainly on Roberta ...more
I know the first full length book is going to be about Bree, but I really hope that we see another book from Roberta, who goes by Rob and Ryan. They are the people we get to catch a glimpse of in Bridal Boot Camp, ...more
I got the ebook from the Avon signing in RWA19.
Edited to add more explanation re: cop subplot:
So basically this cop hero panicked and pulled a taser on a civilian (he saw the civilian attempting to break ...more
As it is a novella things do move at insta-level to satisfy our romantic needs of the sweetest couple in creation. Yoga instructor Roberta "Rob" meets sheriff's deputy Ryan in one of ...more
Bridal Boot Camp is supposed to be before No Judgements (the first in this new series, which I already reviewed). It's a short novella about two side-characters in the first full-length novel, and therein is where this novella fell a little too flat for me. It was just too short! I know it's not supposed to be that long but it just felt like everything went a little too quickly for my liking.
The concept is kind of funny, and ...more
Simply put, Roberta is a personal trainer who moves to an island to start a bridal boot camp where ladies who are getting ready to marry come to get fit, she hooks up with Ryan who is a hot hunk of a Police officer.
Oh..... a Hurricane seems to be headed their way
I've read most of Meg Cabot's YA novels, so this is actually the first time I've read one of her adult fiction books.
This was a very short and sweet novella, with some steam. Not a HEA, more of a HFN because of how short the novella is. Bridal Boot Camp essentially sets up the tone and setting for the first full-length novel, which I can't wait to read!
I've read short stories and novellas before, so I was expecting more development and a better story arc. This novella was very disjointed for me. The first chapter Ryan is extremely shy, but then by chapter three he's all friendly and open and wanting to be best friends with Roberta. And they had literally met once and the majority of their interact ...more
The thing with novellas is that sometimes, becau ...more
Bridal Boot Camp is a four chapter novella that starts the Little Bridge Island series.
Little Bridge is a small island in the Florida Keys. The narrator of this novella is physical trainer Roberta “Rob” James (1st person POV). She teaches a bridal boot camp class.
The male lead is Ryan Martinez. He is the sheriff’s deputy.
This story was much sexier and much more insta-love than I was expecting. But it was a cute prequel novella. It was a nice introduction to the series. The next book ...more
Meg Cabot was born on February 1, 1967, during the Chinese astrological year of the Fire Horse, a notoriously unlucky sign. Fortunately she grew up in Bloomington, Indiana, where few people were aware of the stigma of being a fire horse -- at least until Meg became a teenager, when she flun ...more
