I’M RIGHT WHERE I WANT TO BE

As a loyal reader and fan to Ms. Vanessa Vale’s Bridgewater series, I was so excited when I read that she was adding another series, Return to Bridgewater. In Bridgewater, Montana, the men follow the customs of the small wild country of Mohamir where men, usually in twos and threes, married a woman together. It wasn’t for their needs, but hers—having two husbands ensured the wife would always be protected and cherished. The Montana Territory was just as wild, and the

Hot, dominant cowboy types? Yes, please. Vanessa Vale must've heard my thoughts and decided to gift me with not one, but two hot cowboys, James and Jonah, who have to go claim their bride, Tennesse.

Tennessee managed to get herself into trouble, and when her friend Abigail came to rescue her, so did her two husbands and her big brother, James. Before James went after Tennie, he told his neighbor Jonah that he wanted to have a Bridgewater marriage and he wanted Jonah to be the second husband.

The Rebellious Bride by Vanessa Vale is a new Bridgewater, Montana series. The main characters are Tennessee, Jonah and James and this is their red-hot story. What's great is Vanessa Vale re-visits her Bridgewater series but it's the historical town instead of the modern day one. This is a historical romance that has M/F/M. Jonah and James are ready to claim spunky and sassy Tennessee. Their love story will have you rooting for their steamy HEA. Full of feels, romance, drama, action and romance. ...more

Return to Bridgewater is a new series to me as I didn’t read the original Bridgewater series but I was not lost whatsoever. I really enjoyed the dynamic between James, Tennessee and Jonah. Jonah is older than the other two by almost 2 decades so he takes on a father figure to Tennessee. James and Tennessee have had a crush on each other for a couple of years but when she gets kidnapped along with his sister he calls in Jonah to help. There are sexy times, misunderstandings, bratty behavior and ...more

If you've read any of the Bridgewater menage series, you know that the books by this author are full of insta-love, danger, intrigue, and enough heat to set the house on fire! This book is the beginning of a new series, set in the same world, in the same time period, but focusing on characters we were introduced to in one of the original Bridgewater books. Many of the original characters are in this book, and it still focuses on Menage marriage, but it doesn't take place solely on the Bridgewate ...more

The new Bridgewater, Montana series starts off with Tennessee, Jonah and James' story.
Jonah not looking for a wife, James knowing exactly who he wants to marry for over two years and Tennessee escaping from a horrible situation her father put her in brings the three together.
James wastes no time telling Tennessee she'll be his wife an hauling her off, she has other ideas. She just escaped what would have been a marriage of convenience and refuses to marry for anything other than love.

Welcome back to Bridgewater, Montana. This new series by Vanessa Vale re-visits Bridgewater but it's the historical town instead of the modern version from her last series. In the days of old they still are known for their menage marriages.

We're introduced to Tennessee, Jonah, and James in this first book of the series. Tennessee definitely resembles the title of this book - rebellious bride. There's a lot happening in this novella. If you're

I always enjoy a Vanessa Vale book. Not only are they great fast reads but they are always full of such sexual energy. I love that about them! This book, however, pulled at me in a different way. My heart was solely with James. HE wanted to marry Tennessee, HE had loved her for years from a distance. And yet, because of the times he lost his chance. He is still her husband. But like was written, he doesn't get to claim her for the world to know. Jonah does. I liked Jonah, I liked Tennessee, but ...more

Back to Bridgewater!
This series is my guilty pleasure, cause a marriage between a woman and multiply man? Hell yeah bring all the heat please! 😍

Although a stand-alone, there's a little missing link at first chapter about what happened to Tennese when she was kidnapped. But it's not too big in the plot cause the story go on from James "proposal" and then their marriage with Jonah.

It's an easy super steamy read with simple plot where you can just relax and enjoy it. But there's one point I like

YAY it’s back to Bridgewater with this story from Ms. Vale. It has everything we have come to love about her stories, from strong alpha males to a bit of trouble, to heat and of course strong willed women who meet their matches. This is a stand alone but you is a continuation of Ms. Vale’s first set of Bridgewater books. It’s a quick read and a quick travel back in time. It is exciting to have a new work by Ms. Vale though as she has a way with words to be able to combine the past with the “dirt ...more

It is so fun when you get to go back to Bridgewater. Tennessee is the best character I have read in a while. She is great. She has such a wild streak and isn’t afraid to use it. I actually laughed out loud a couple of times with her shenanigans. The scene in the kitchen with the other wives is just the best. They are just so casual; I was won in an auction, I entered Roberts stateroom, I was found almost dead in the snow. I giggled and giggled. Of course it made me want to go back and reread the ...more

This story was fantastic!
It was a captivating ménage romance with amazing characters! James, Jonah and Tennessee great for each! The men were going to make Tennessee theirs! She had enough sass to make a very entertaining story! Vanessa has given us a story with dominance, submission, passion and a lot of hot, steamy sexiness! It has everything you need for an amazing story! I loved it and I’m sure you will too!

I have not read the first series about Bridgewater by Vanessa but now I know that I want to. Vanessa always catches your interest within the first chapter of every book that I have read from her. This on was no different. I enjoyed reading about Tennessee, James and Jonah's finding each other and how they all come together. He book has some pretty sexy scenes, a whole lot of rebellion and a little bit of taming. Enjoyed this book!

Finally!!! Welcome back to Bridgewater!!! Now I know why I enjoyed the original Bridgewater Series so much… For me, it seems that “one cowboy is never enough” belongs there, in that time and place. Haven’t tried to figure out why… but it just fits! And it’s SCORCHING HOT!!! Loved it! Missed it more than I thought! Bravo!!

I enjoyed this one - it's not necessarily my favorite, but it was pretty dang good. Bridgewater Brides is a go-to reread series for me. They aren't just MFM stories, they are true romance stories and Their Rebellious Bride was no different. I love spunky heroines and Tennessee Bennett is a spunky as they come! James Carr and Jonah Wells were super swoon worthy!

This fast read offers lots of steam, emotions, danger and excitement. A ménage romance that focuses on James Carr, Tennessee Bennett and Jonah Wells. This was a enjoyable read. However, I kind of felt that James got cheated out of the HEA he wanted and deserved. I could never really let that go and move past it. By my own accord I am posting a candid review.

I love a good romantic western with hot cowboys! Jonah and James think they know what's best for Tennessee, but they have to learn that she can also had a mind of her own! Loved the name Tennessee for the heroine, too!
