A June Bride - Marybeth Whalen

3 Stars

ABOUT THE BOOK -
It takes a reality TV show for Wynne to realize love isn't just a game.

Wynne Hardy never thought she'd get engaged on a reality TV show, but when she met Andy on The Rejection Connection, the two of them hit it off. Now he's asked her to marry him, much to the public's delight and fascination. They're all set to wed on live TV in a seaside ceremony at the height of the wedding season.

But just as Wynne thinks all her dreams are coming true, her ex-boyfriend walks back into her life at the worst possible time. Steve broke her heart years ago, and she's still sorting through her feelings for him. Her heart isn't as clear as her head that it's past time to move on-even though she's engaged to Andy.

At a local TV talk show appearance, Wynne meets Meredith, who won another reality TV show-Marathon Mom-proving herself nothing short of a superhero. As Wynne's beach wedding plans spin out of control, Meredith offers to help, unknowingly stepping on Wynne's secret feelings . . . and exposing some secrets Meredith has been keeping to herself. Can these two reality stars get real about their feelings? Will Wynne go through with her televised wedding and be the perfect June bride the network is looking for?

MY REVIEW -
Well I really liked this book... up until the end. I like books about reality shows :-)  I am not a fan of TV shows like that (The Bachelor, Bachelorette, etc.) but I do love books about TV shows like that, LOL - I don't know why??

What I look for in a Novella or short story is - Is there a definite beginning, middle and end. And this one was totally missing the end. The whole rest of it I really liked! But the end or lack of really ruined it for me. And even if it did have an end, it wouldn't have been the one I wanted.

Soooo, short story, shorter LOL, An OK read, quick, easy, fun, interesting, cute, flirty, and good character development! Just didn't like the end.

I looked up this author on Amazon and her full length novels look good and they got great reviews, so I don't think I will "write" her off. I would prob try something else.

Thank you "BookLook Bloggers" for sending me this e-book for my honest review!

  1. OH NO! I missed this one! I'll have to read it.
    Though your review worries me... I'll let you know what I think. Maybe it's part of a series & leads into another book. Like Rachael Hauck's did in the March one... Hopefully ;)
