Something Borrowed: Christmas Weddings Collection
Always Been Yours by Jaycee Weaver — Hanady's planning her dream wedding, but her injured best friend Keenan isn't the groom. If she can't see she's marrying the wrong guy soon, his leg won't be the only thing broken.
All the Moore by Toni Shiloh — Leilah Anderson has been living behind the screen to hide her disability, then she...more
This was just the cutest collection of Christmas wedding stories. The connection was the SOMETHING BORROWED tiara that is passed to all the brides who were college roommates and great friends.
Two of my favorites were by Toni Shiloh and Mikal Dawn. All The Moore has a wheelchair bound heroine which is so interesting. A Holly Bolly Christmas had a Scottish groom in a kilt and a bride in a Sari.
Each story told of earthly love and God ...more
Always Been Yours by Jaycee Weaver – Keenan and Hanady were so perfect for each other. Keenan treated Hanady so well and truly valued her. I loved it when they FINALLY found love together!
All the Moore by Toni Shiloh – This story was packed with emotion! I love ...more
These stories each had a sweet spin to them. Five authors, six friends, five sweet romances, and five beautifully unique weddings!
I loved the thread of close friendships and support these books share. Each story has a different twist and a distinctive flair, mixed into the characters. Oh, to have close friends like this!

Beautifully written, it follows five friends and their love stories.
Besides Jaycee Weaver I had read a book or two from each of these authors and was excited to read more. It was a great introduction to her stories and would definitely be looking out for more.
With themes of acceptance and loving yourself for who you are or the challenges that come with intercultural/interracial marriages to calamities that could happen ju ...more
Weddings, I don’t know too many readers that do not enjoy them. Add the fact that the wedding is around the Christmas holiday and you double the joy. When I saw this collection, I knew that I must have it.
Each author is uniquely talented in crafting their individual contribution to the collection. Love and heartache, laughter and tears, and most importantly—weddings and romance. It is the craftiness that each story intermingles with the next through the con ...more
Always Been Yours by Jaycee Weaver
I enjoyed this author's writing style and loved the main character. Hanady is the kind of friend I look for: fun, sweet, spunky, and a little bit sassy, yet fiercely loyal and loving. She's also a little clueless in her romantic life, but that makes for a fun read and a romantic ending of the novella, one that was blissf ...more
I appreciated that the time frame of the whole collection was spread out over a couple years (nope, all five do not get married together) and that each story had an established relationship—whether that be ...more
Teresa Tysinger and Andrea Boyd are new to me authors and I thoroughly enjoyed their stories.
I adored the way each of the authors wrote their story. Quirky characters, venues that might or might not work, ridiculous family members. Everything that most if not all brides can identify with. I could. ...more
I enjoyed the friendship dynamic between the girls. You could tell they had genuine relationships by their affection for each other, clothed in honesty and encouragement. A couple of the novellas stood out a little more to me because of a deeper faith element and ...more

Awwww Keenan and Hanady! Friends to more has always been a favorite of mine and this wasn't an exception. Swoon worthy with lessons in faith that is inspiring and worthy of emulation.
All The Moore by Toni Shiloh.
Toni Shiloh has always had my heart with her books and this one was no exception. I loved the stories, I loved the characters, the humor, banter was just so heartwarming.

An utterly charming collection of stories, I loved how they tie into, and build upon one another, as we get to know each of the brides and their beautifully, unique love stories. I couldn't keep a smile from my face as I read through each of the stories.
I loved Hanady and Keenan's chem ...more
The stories follow five friends in pursuit of love and marriage even when they believe that it will not be happening for them or when it actually comes in the most of unexpected w ...more

Most of the authors that have contributed to this are ones I’ve read before and ...more

I loved the idea of a tiara being the “something borrowed” in the five weddings while also being a way to pay tribute to their friend Ruth-Ann. It was fun getting glimpses of the friends in each of the stories and though there were a few inconsistencies, it did not detract from the stories. Each novella in Something Borrowed chronicled the romance of one of the five unmarrie ...more
