Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In the sizzling third Weekday Brides contemporary (after Married by Monday and Wife by Wednesday), Bybee takes an elegant titled lady, a dark emotionally guarded hero, a menacing stalker, and a cast of distinctive characters mixing it all up into an unusual courtship tale full of danger and sexual tension. After securing a new client for Alliance, a matchmaking service for the wealthy, socialite Lady Gwen Harrison returns to her state-of-the-art monitored home to once again unsuccessfully flirt with her bodyguard, Neil MacBain. Former Marine Neil is not immune to the ravishing Gwen, but haunting recurring nightmares of military mission gone awry and a reluctance to mix pleasure with business lead him to suppress his feelings. Inexplicable security breaches, electrocuted neighbors, dead birds, and an implausible suicide propel Neil to whisk Gwen away from a revenge-seeking stalker, and the closeness of the on-the-run, off-the-grid adventure sparks passionate lovemaking. While the pace lags mid-novel, it regains momentum, and the intriguing characters add emotional depth, ensuring readers will race to the perfectly fitting finish.

From Booklist

The Weekday Brides series (Wife by Wednesday and Married by Monday, both 2013) continues with the unlikely but satisfying couple of Brit Gwen, newly in America, and her intense, homegrown bodyguard, Neil. As the daughter of a duke, Gwen is used to living with security. She soon realizes, however, that the dead birds she and her roommate are finding, along with the unlocked doors, are not mere coincidences. Neil realizes the birds allude to his failed Raven military mission that went deadly wrong. He knows someone is getting revenge on him by hurting Gwen, so they go into hiding. While they are running, their flirtation explodes. They soon depend on each other as they fight for their lives. Suspense, survival, and chemistry mix in this scintillating read in the style of Julie Garwood and Suzanne Brockmann. Previous characters in the series return, but the strong story and characters stand well alone. --Amy Alessio

Just a little blurb about me. First and always, I'm a wife and a mother. Second, I'm a writer... anything and everything romance. If it doesn't have a happily ever after, I'm not interested. Let's face it. Life is full of... well... life. Having spent over a decade of my life working as a RN in urban Emergency Rooms, I want to escape when I pick up a book. And I now create those worlds for you to escape into.

The characters were very well written and the storyline developed throughout with romance, suspense and mystery.

This also had way too much graphic sex, again not so much in the other two books.

I discovered Catherine Bybee when I was presented with the book Not Quite Dating in November of last year. I loved that book and added Catherine to my list of authors to watch. Since that time I have read and reviewed several more of her stories and she has cemented herself as one of my favorite authors. I simply enjoy everything she writes.

When I won this copy from the author, to say I was ecstatic would be a gross understatement. I couldn't wait to finish the book I was already reading so I could dive into this one. I have been fascinated with the strong silent Neil and the chemistry that has been brewing between him and Gwen throughout this series. This book was fantastic.

Gwen and her roommate Karen end up finding dead birds and trouble with the neighbors while Neil's past comes to haunt his present day. Torn between duty and his unrequited feelings for Gwen, the stoic Neil is forced out of his comfort zone to protect the one woman he cares about.

I've loved the first two books in this series, but this one was the best in the bunch so far. It was quite impossible to put down with characters too wonderful to describe. If you don't fall in love with Neil and Gwen your heart is made of stone. They are perfect for each other and the type of hero and heroine that makes me come back to the romance genre again and again.

This book has action, romance, mystery and plenty of sex. It's practically perfect in every way. There are character updates from those we have come to know in the previous books and we get to know Karen a little bit more, too. I am hoping she gets her own happily ever after, soon. I am aching to know what makes her tick. I think she is going to be a multifaceted character and she needs a strong man. Maybe Rick??

This book is a keeper and I cannot wait until the next one comes out. I'm loving her books!

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Catherine Bybee first captured my attention with her sweet contemporary romance series, Not Quite. I love this authors writing, and I recommend her to both contemporary and suspense romance fans.

This was a very effortless read -- the flow and pace were exceptional. I read this entire book in a single day. My initial reservations about Lady Gwendolyn Harrison being a spoiled, pampered, princess were quickly quashed. She is a well-written character with many layers permitting her great range without distorting her character. The author complemented her character well by pairing her with the very mystifying Neil. His quiet confidence and assertion grabbing my attention from page one. He is a strong hero capable of protecting Gwen by utilizing the skills taught to him by our military. Gwen's adaptability and Neil's inexplicable expertise made an intriguing romantic adventure.

It is not necessary to read the previous books, neither Wife by Wednesday nor Married by Monday, prior to enjoying this book. I have not yet read either of them, but I felt immediately conformable with the all the characters. However, I was intrigued by the brief mentions of the characters from those books I will be backtracking and reading their stories.

Up next...Single by Saturday it features Gwen's roommate, Karen Jones, and Zach Gardner.

Format: Paperback
This is the third book in the Weekday Brides series and is about Gwen and Neil, although all the couples from the previous books play a part, including Karen, the new partner in Alliance, the matchmaking service.

Lady Gwen Harrison, the British daughter of a modern-day Duke, is tired of living her sheltered existence. She has come to America to be near her brother and his family, and to explore and become more independent. Oh, and she may have a crush on Neil MacBain, her brother's head of security. Neil, a former Marine, is a hard, quiet man. If he does speak at all, it's to order Gwen to pay more attention to the security measures he has set up at her house. Gwen flirts and teases him but nothing appears to ruffle silent Neil. Until, strange things start to happen with the security systems, dead birds are appearing everywhere, and there's something going on with the new neighbors. Is this Neil's military past catching up with him or just coincidences?

Wow, Neil has thoughts about Gwen and sometimes they are hot, sexy thoughts! It was great to finally get inside Neil's head and see what he's been thinking. He thinks Gwen deserves better than him, a slightly damaged Marine, and tries to tell her so several times. Gwen knows she wants Neil, and only Neil.

There's also a road trip, as Neil tries to figure out what is going on and if he is correct that someone from his past wants him dead. The trip really gives Neil and Gwen some alone time, away from their family and friends, where they can figure out their feelings for each other.

The book has plenty of suspense along with the romance and a mystery that needs to be pieced together. I very much enjoyed this book.

Bottom line...the book is a good, escapist read (nice addition to the series), and the average person with no military affiliation is not going to notice any issues, but I still feel the need to point out a few things that a quick search on Google or Wikipedia might have resolved. I appreciate the attempt to use military characters, especially in a heroic light, but it's a little irritating to see so many easily fixable and glaring errors. I know I'll probably take heat for correcting something most consider secondary to the rest of the book, but here goes:

1) "Soldier" is not an interchangeable term for every branch of service. A Soldier is in the Army, a Marine is a Marine, the Air Force has Airmen, and the Navy has Sailors. Call a Marine "Soldier" and see what response you get.
2) Fort Carson, Colorado, is an Army post. Marines occasionally go there for training, but it's not a Marine Corps camp. Major Blayney would neither be stationed there nor would he be anywhere near the top of the command chain. The commander of most military bases is at least a full colonel if not a general officer.
3) To be retired, one must have served at least 20 years or have a valid medical reason to be retired early. If someone is a commissioned officer (lieutenant) and gets out before 20 years or without being medically retired, it's called resigning your commission. When one is enlisted, it's called separating from the service.
4) The commissary is a grocery store and does not ever stock clothing...you buy that at the base/post Exchange.

People can respond to this review and flame me all they want, but right is right. I'm a 22-year commissioned officer, and lack of research like this is just lazy. Next time find a vet and use them as a consultant...there are quite a few of them around these days.
