Sweet story with some fun in between"
Ryan may have meet someone that can just take him on and then some. Returning home for Ellie was not exactly what she was expecting. She gets home to only find nothing. Everything she loved had changed and some changes were bigger than others. She also finds her childhood crush located in the one place he should not have been. This was more fun and some excitement that was not contained in the first of the series. I still enjoyed it all. I loved watching Elli

I received a free ARC of this book and am voluntarily writing an honest review.

After reading the first book a while ago, I was so ready for book 2. I love that the author was able to make me feel like I was in the Caribbean through her descriptions! Ellie was the perfect foil for Ryan and their romance was sweet. Ellie knew Ryan when she was a kid and actually dreamed of marrying him when she was eight. Fast forward 10 years and they meet again. What starts as a fake engagement to help Ryan obt

Hands down, this is the best romance I've read in ages. Author Vicky Loebel has knocked it out of the park with the second book in her 'Brides of Paradise' series. I actually enjoyed this book even more than Vacation Bride. First of all, I love how the author whisks me to the Caribbean with her words. The perfect escape! The heroine, Ellie, is a fun and very likeable character, but it's Ryan, the hero, who stole my heart. He's vulnerable yet cocky, sweet, smart, charming, and just all around end ...more

Enjoyable storyline, some very interesting characters that's for sure.
I'm sure if I read it, it would have come across a little funnier. Narrator was great with male voices and different characters.

I love when I love a book

This was even better than the first book. Ellie and Ryan we perfect for each other. The writing seemed rushed a few times but the story mostly flowed. Gran was a delight. I'm looking forward to another book in this series

Loved it

This is the first book I read by this author. I will be reading more of her books, that is for sure. She brought each character to life.
