Vowing Love by Adrienne Giordano

Reid and Brynne’s wedding day goes horribly awry.
Book 9 in the Steele Ridge series by alternating authors. This is a novella.
It can be read as a standalone romance.

Full of the emotional heart you want in a great romantic suspense. This is one not to be missed, even if you haven’t read any of the other Steele Ridge books. Happy tears at the end.
Quasi large cast of characters but the author did a great job of centering the story on the bride and groom.

This is a good short read. I love the Steele family. Big, bad Green Beret Reid is finally settling down with Brynne. Their wedding day is anything but perfect. I was surprised by something scary happening. But it went along with the “perfect” day Brynne wanted. You can imagine some of the shenanigans that went on with Reid’s Green Beret buddies! At least this will be a wedding they will never forget! I strongly encourage you to read the book. I voluntarily read an Advanced Reader’s Copy of this ...more

Steele Ridge #9

This novella length story sees Reid and Brynne having to deal with a crazy situation before they can say their wedding vows. The experience, though difficult, only drew them closer together. I thoroughly enjoyed this snippet of time in Steele Ridge and the opportunity of catching a glimpse of some other characters in the series.

Thank you to the author for the ARC- This is my honest review.

A good, suspenseful short story. As Reid and Brynne prepare to marry, several things happen to make Reid think it might not happen. Brynne starts having doubts when she finds him still drunk from the night before. Then a crazy woman holds them both at gun point. Will they live until their wedding? If Reid has anything to say about it, they will.

Here comes the bride ... or will she?? This fast paced and action packed novella of Reid and Brynne's wedding day was super fun to read. The only thing that could have made it any better was if it had been longer and we could have drug each and every family member back on the pages to bask in them all again. This wedding was never going to go down easy when Reid was involved, and if making Brynnie mad was the only thing that was going wrong maybe it would be okay but when danger strikes, all bet ...more

Shelves: arc
A crazy, OTT, full of non-stop action yet still romantic short story--in other words, pretty much exactly what you'd expect from a Steele Ridge wedding ;)

This is going to be short and sweet--I honestly don't know what I can say beyond the blurb without spoiling anything! So much happens--somehow you'll both shake your head at what's going on and nod with understanding (again--see Steele Ridge Wedding comment above. It's so true).

This probably isn't the book to start with if you're new to the se

This story had me smiling at the antics, biting my nails at the events unfolding and then tearing up with happiness. I've been on this crazy ride with the Steele's from the beginning. What a roller coaster of emotions. Reid and Brynne are getting married BUT Reid got drunk on moonshine at his bachelor party and is not supposed to be at the house when Brynne arrives to get ready. Unfortunately, he's still kind of drunk and in no shape to move quickly. Things go crazy from there and it takes Reid ...more

Vowing Love by Adrienne Giordano is simply icing on a well written cake that is the Steele Ridge series. While you could read this book on its own, it is much better after you read Living Fast first. That is the books where Reid and Brynne meet and fall in love.

In Vowing Love, we get to catch up with Reid and Brynne to see how things are going for their wedding. Of course, when it comes to the Steele family, there is never a dull moment. Danger seems to follow Reid, but luckily he usually knows

Reid Steele is in big trouble. After his bachelor party, he's under the weather. Not the way he should be feeling on his wedding day. When his momma and his fiancé are up in arms, he's ashamed. He figures that his day couldn't get any worse. Suddenly it does. He finds himself faced with a woman with a gun. Can he escape and make it to his wedding? Reid is stubborn, opinionated and madly in love with Brynne. I liked him. He's a character but the Steele Family is always memorable. Brynne may seem ...more

OMG! What an explosive novella! It starts out with Reid being totally wasted on his wedding day. For him, the day just gets more explosive when Brynne finds him still at his mother's house and goes downhill from there. In walks Mac's wife with a gun and thinks seem like they are going totally sideways. Brynne finds strength when Reid's cousins and friend enter the picture. She fights Rachael to get the gun away from her. As everyone says, never a dull moment with the Steeles. I am so

A fast paced read that draws you through so effortlessly, even knowing the story is novella length, the ending came far too quickly...I can never get enough Steele goodness. There was the perfect mixture of drama, tension, unexpected complications, all wrapped around Reid and Brynne’s unfailing love...which superseded all expectations for a drama free romantic wedding day. Ms Giordano has once again transported me to another place, making me, in my mind’s eye, a participant within the story in a ...more

We thought that Reid and Brynne had gotten their happily ever after in Living Fast and it was a surprise for them to have another book of their own. This time, featuring their wedding and what happens before it. Like all happily in love couples, they have their ups and downs but no one would have thought that their wedding day would turn out to be such a disaster. The events that happened are hilarious though and it was assuring and heartwarming to see them walking down the aisle together.

Such a fun quick glance back into the Steeles’ life. The story takes place on the morning of Reid and Brynne’s wedding. Having read the other Steele Ridge books, I knew to expect nothing to go according to plan. However, I wasn’t quite prepared for how turned off I was by Brynne’s attitude/insecurity when she finds Reid still drunk/hungover from the night before. Thankfully that quickly changes when she finds herself mixed up in danger with Reid. I loved going back and getting a glimpse of one o ...more

I loved reading about Brynne and Reid's wedding day! This is a fun novella with plenty of drama that does not disappoint. I love Brynne and Reid together and how they interact, so it was great to read the story of their wedding.

This is a novella in an established series, so, while it is a stand alone, it will make more sense and you will enjoy it so much more, if you've read at least one or two of the prior books. However, the series is so good that you really owe to yourself to read them all. T

In this novella, Brynne and Reid are finally tying the knot. But things do not have a less than perfect start. Reid wakes up with a huge hangover from his bachelor party the night before.

All he wants to do is marry her and make the day special but things go quickly astray. She finds him suffering from his hangover as her insecurities come to haunt her; especially, her failed first marriage.

What can he do to make it up to her before they wed? Will they even walk down the ai

Although this is a novella, the author has put a lot of action in it! Reid overdid things at his bachelor party with his Green Beret buddies after promising Brynne that he wouldn’t get drunk. She is furious, but that’s not the only problem of their wedding day. It seems like some of their guests are having major issues in their marriage that threatens to ruin Reid & Brynne’s special day. A great read!

This very short, but impactful story was fun to read. If you haven’t read the other books yet, you can certainly still enjoy it, but I will say that I think is has more “feels” if you know the other characters, and even know Reid and Brynne’s story first. This is their wedding day, and as with all other Steele Ridge books, some chaos must be ensured. Another great read about a family I would love to be friends with. Hope there are more books to come!

As my grandmother would say, “Reid is certainly in a pickle on his wedding day.”
Started reading this in the waiting room at the VA and found my emotions really played with the events that effect Brynne and Reid on their wedding day.
Many tears from the emotions shared between Brynne and Reid on their wedding day. Just the right amount of suspense and love.
Thank you for a great read.

It's Reid and Brynne wedding day and the one thing she wanted the most he blew. His Army buddies got him drunk on moonshine at his bachelor party and he's passed out on his mom's floor the day of the wedding when he's supposed to be gone.
Bad goes to worse and their both in danger.
A great addition to the series!

Another well written perfectly paced story pulling you in from the start. This being book nine in the Steele Ridge series is a standalone read but a great series to get into. This one about Brynne and Reid's marriage but easy to follow all the characters in the story.

Woohoo!! Reid and Brynne finally make it to the alter but not without some excitement to start the day!! This is a short read but it still packs the usual punch that all the Steele Ridge stories contain. I read it in one sitting and had a HUGH smile on my face when I closed the book!!

I really liked the couple and they definitely have to stay strong to get to their wedding.

He really loves her and she has a strength you don't see at first.

I loved the other characters too and their relationships enhance the story.
