(Fairy Tale Brides)
July 23, 2018
Blurb: Jilted bride Monica Blair can’t believe it when she wakes up next to a blue-eyed, smooth-talking cowboy in the middle of nowhere and with a ring on her finger. It had sounded like a great plan at the time. Get married, get revenge, and get her money back. So why is she cleaning out stables and trying to keep her hands off the hot cowboy helping her?
Ryder Nash would have bet his best Stetson that you’d never see him walk down the aisle. But when the city girl with pink-streaked hair and a frog tattoo hatches a plan to expose the conman who married his sister, no idea is too crazy. And even though Monica might be the worst rancher’s wife he’s ever seen, he can’t stop thinking about the wedding night they never had.
What was supposed to be a temporary marriage for revenge is starting to feel a little too real…
SASCHA DARLINGTON’S REVIEW
If you’re looking for a fun, flirty little read, One Wedding, Two Brides might just be what you’re looking for. The novel starts immediately with Monica Blair appearing at the wedding reception of her (ex-?) fiance, trying to tell all of the guests what a louse he is, only to being carried off over the shoulder of cowboy, Ryder Nash. The next thing she knows she’s waking up in a strange place with someone she doesn’t know sleeping next to her. And a ring on her finger.
While I’m not a huge fan of fake marriages/relationships, they always seem a little forced to me, this one works, mainly because of the chemistry between the city girl, Monica, and straight-shooting, Ryder. They are cute and funny and sexy.
While some of the situations might leave you wondering, such as why no one recognizes the woman who was drunk and showed up at Ryder’s sister’s wedding reception or occurrences with Monica’s ex-, Matt, the rest of it is pure rom-com fun, perfect for a happy quick read.
I haven’t read Heidi Betts before, but I will certainly be looking for more of her novels in the future.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
