Review

"A sweet, romantic tale that leaves one yearning for a matador of their own." ~  InD'Tale Magazine

From the Author

Dear Readers,

I'm excited to have just reissued HOW TO MARRY A MATADOR with its gorgeous new cover, and offer it for sale in ebook and paperback at Amazon. MATADOR is special to my heart in many ways. Having lived and studied in Spain twice (in Madrid and Seville), and also having Spanish grandparents (Go Majorca and Galicia!), I'm delighted to at long last realize my ambition of publishing a romantic comedy set in Iberia.

There is something about those Spaniards that is just so... sexy and dramatic. Traditional and bound to family allegiances, too. Combining those elements, I arrived at Fernando, the hunky Matador in my story. He's clearly a guy who could turn an American gal's head. And, typically-in-control Jess is no exception. Perhaps she wasn't expecting to wake up in bed married to him. Then again, maybe - in her heart - she secretly was. After all, she's a girl who's always done what other people have expected. Isn't it time she take a leap of faith and make up her own mind?

I hope you have as much fun reading HOW TO MARRY A MATADOR as I did writing it. The characters engaged and challenged me, making me fall in love with the possibility of love all over again. May we all find our own alluring "matadors" some day. Ole!

With best wishes for happy endings,
Ginny Baird

This story had a l ot of potential. However there were just too many things that got on my last nerve. I liked the hero altho he was just a little bit into taking care of his mother. And the heroine, what a sap. For someone who was suppose to be on the top of her game career wise, she seemed a bit childish to me. Doesn't know her own mind and then when she thinks she does, doesn't have the balls to stand up and act on it. The best friend got on my last nerve. I really hate people that think they know what is best for you and pressure you to do as they say. Plus she was a lot childish in her thinking process. And she shows up on her best friend's honeymoon and can't understand why the friend is not overjoyed to see her. DUH. I got so irritated at these characte3rs that I quit reading about 3/4 of the way through. Another big issue I had was the hero is from an old Spanish family, generations of land owners. They didn't seem to have a problem with her being a non Catholic!! And then she wants to get her marriage set aside after sleeping with him for several days straight. One, I doubt it would be that easy in a Catholic Spain to set aside a marriage that easy and that it could just be done by showing up at the proper authorities. Maybe you can but I don't think so. This one was just not for me. I like a strong hero and a heroine with a brain and spine. This gal had neither. The hero had the best line when he said that if his bride could be so easily persuaded by her best friend then maybe she was not for him after all. Good thinking fellow.

I suspect it’s meant to be the first installment in a series. The couple focus in this one is on Jessica Bloom and Fernando Garcia de la Vega and takes place mostly in La Esperanza del Corazón in Spain.

My Take
Cute and short enough to be a novella at 189 pages. It also has some odd problems.

It's cute in that Jess gets married on a whim — or is it a subconscious desire? — to the businessman-cum-matador she has been negotiating with for the past six months over the acquisition of his telecommunications business.

There’s a codicil in his paternal grandfather’s will that puts a deadline on Fernando to ensure the family’s continuing. And then we learn that the rancho is from his mother’s side of the family while the techcomm business appears to be his own venture. So what he’d be losing…I don’t know.

There’s the disconnect between Jess not having paid attention to her faith for years, and Fernando thinking she’s religious. All interspersed with the silly tropes of Jess telling Fernando she doesn’t want him and then being pissed because he finally accepts what she’s telling him *eye roll*. Then what’s with the scene in the bullfighting ring? Jess is supposedly intelligent and yet she can’t seem to make that mental connection between bull-in-ring-about-to-charge-her-husband and the fact that he probably needs to concentrate on the more immediate danger? Duhhh… Another reason to question her I.Q. is how slow she is to pick up on the Gemini comment.

For all that, there’s surprisingly little conflict. Yes, I know it’s there in Fernando wanting to stay married and Jess not wanting to. In Jess’ own internal debate. But it’s not really there. You’ll see what I mean if you read this, as everything is la-la land.

Here's the short and to-the-point review...
1) It's a very short, quick, easy read
2) I would consider this a "formula" styled romance...fluff
3) Mostly predictable story
4) Storyline digs right in at the very beginning...the H/h wakes up married
5) The H/h are both likeable characters
6) It ends with a lovely HEA ending
Overall, an enjoyable read for those times when you really don't want to think your way through a story, you just want to lay back, smile, and enjoy the read.

The story begins with the heroine over indulging in sangria and finding herself married to a business associate that happens to be a bull fighter in a past life. The story is very predictable with no surprise endings. I read the story mostly, but found myself skipping sections wanting it to end. An OK read only.

Disclaimer: I won a preview of this book from Goodreads, yay!
This was a sweet little novella. The characters were all super likeable, and I felt that the author reallly avoided several of the cliches that are kind of prominent in romance books. And didn't have to suspend disbelief too much (which I typically find in romance books too) It must be a fine line to draw as an author, because we all want the HEA, and there aren't that many ways to have conflict and tension while still ending up with the HEA. My only real complaint--it was too short, and actually felt somewhat rushed. Especially the ending. But I'd recommend for a quick one-day read to put a smile on your face.

I don't know what it was about this story, but I just couldn't get into it. I studied in Spain and know many of the locations the characters visited, but it all felt "off". Predictable story, flat characters.

I read this book some time ago. I generally like this author, but this story came across really flat, choppy, and really boring. I liked the characters, but I did not feel any romantic connections. The h married the H when she was drunk. She was in Spain to close a deal with the H’s company. The H needed a bride and a child before his 32nd birthday or lose everything his family owned according to the will left behind by his grandfather. She had too much sangria and he saw his opportunity. Not a great way to start a marriage.

Then while the h was getting the hang of or questioning her married life with the H, her friend talks her into second guessing herself on staying married. That was the entire book. I guess I wasn’t feeling the love connection because at the end, the H was thinking of everything he stood to lose because she was planning to annul their marriage. He should have been focused on losing the love of the h. And the h was supposed to be this tough woman who ate companies for breakfast since she was in mergers and acquisitions, but she was really wishy-washy depending on her friend for answers as to whether she should stay married. The H also came across too much like a mama’s boy. The story seem to jump around a lot with no consistent continuity.

I gave it two stars because I liked parts of the story and it had a lot of potential.
