All Dressed Up In Love - Ruth Logan Herne

3 Stars

ABOUT THE BOOK -
Greg Elizondo hadn't bargained for this. Any of this.
Satin. Lace. Tulle. Pearl inlay, embroidered bodices, and Swarovski crystals.
The bridal shop business it took his mother three decades to build, the enterprise that covered his university and law degrees in full, was struggling because he might be part-genius when it came to contract law . . . But corset-style gowns with a mermaid flair? Shoot me now.
Tara Simonetti hated law school, but loved the community grant funding her presence at Temple University's esteemed school of law. She could not fail. Would not fail. But when a notice for bridal store help appeared on the community notice board, Tara applied for the job immediately. While grants and loans helped pave her way, money for food was scarce. Legal precedence, moot court, and judicial clerking all had their place, but they were nothing compared to Alcenon lace, tucked silk skirts, and a well-placed peplum.
Greg had grabbed her help as the act of a desperate man. Within weeks, he was desperate again, this time to win her heart. But after using community funds to get her degree, how can Tara turn her back on the people who helped finance her goal?
But if she leaves Philadelphia and Greg to return to her small-town in northern Pennsylvania, she'll be leaving her heart behind. A heart he won, fair and square by posting a help wanted notice on the coffee shop board . . . A heart that filled the missing niche in his mother's acclaimed bridal store. A heart Greg longed to cherish forevermore.

MY THOUGHTS -
This story was an OK, nice read, but didn't shine for me. For some reason it just didn't grab me. I found it enjoyable and did keep reading.

The characters, while they were ok, I didn't really fall in love with anybody. I found them to be quite unbelievable and almost desperate. Greg was not "the leading man" for me.

Oh my I am making this sound like a bad book and its so not! I did like it enough, really! This was a sweet story.  It got real good reviews from Amazon. So please judge for yourself.

Thank you Blogging for Books for sending me this ebook for my honest review.

  1. Interesting! I've read all of the Year of Weddings novellas (both the first year and this year) up to this one, but after reading the preview at the end of Serving up a Sweetheart, I decided to pass on this one. Sounds like maybe I made the right choice :-)
