"Wedlocked speaks to so many people...Trachtenberg's appealing wit and ability to create characters that jump off the page and into our hearts has a lot to do with it...I highly recommend this book."

There aren't many books that can hold my attention these days, But Wedlocked absolutely did! This is such an entertaining book - perfect summmer reading - that I'm recommending it to everyone I know. It's the story of an aspiring actress who lets all her disappointment in life and love impel her into marrying the absolute wrong man! The story takes you from NY to LA to Italy and you really feel like you are in all of these places! The main character, Rebecca, is so real you'll feel like you know her. You will also experience her angst and root for her throughout (Don't worry, there's a very happy ending!)All the characters are so vivid and the story is so well told that you totally get lost in it and don't even realize how fast you are flipping through the pages. I love the way this author writes - so clever and funny. When I finished it I was actually a little depressed because it was over! I read that this is the author's debut novel and I hope she's got another one on the way!

Format: Paperback
The story starts with Rebecca Ross's Wedding day. With what should be a happy day turning out to be a disaster, Rebecca is left feeling that this marriage was a total mistake. A wardrobe malfunction to cake deformation would have been still be manageable, if it hadn't been the heavy feeling at the pit of her stomach and the hushed up conversations heard in washroom that made Rebecca even more convinced. All these are followed by a honeymoon in hell! What can a girl do in such a situation and more importantly what will Rebecca do?

We are introduced to the leading cast in the very first chapter. A small glimpse into each person's personality and then the very next chapter goes back to narrate Rebecca's past to the readers so as to let the readers know what all led to this particular moment. The story then moves on with an amazing twist at the end that you want to happen, but when it happens it brings a surprise along with it.

Rebecca Ross is a character who has had her fair share of ups and downs and her own set of mistakes. I admire the fact that when she realizes that the set of cards she has been dealt with is not right, she makes it right instead of just complaining. And my God, Craig is a sample piece for sure who I wanted to be put up on show at a zoo. The man knows how to put his feet in his mouth and drag himself down. Michael and his uncle Zio are such cuties. I loved them both. There are other supporting characters throughout the book that may not seem as important, but if you took them out, the story just wouldn't be the same.

Good characterization is supported by the author's simple style of storytelling that makes the story what it is. Also, the humour presented is just great advantage to the novel.

This book was so much fun! I was totally absorbed into Rebecca and had trouble putting the book down. The plot twists are so entertaining and the ending wasn't what I had expected it to be, but it was wonderful! Great read!

Kudos to debut author Bonnie Trachtenberg! I so enjoyed flipping through the pages of this fabulous read as "Long Island good girl" Rebecca defies her parents' wishes and painstakingly pursues her acting career in California, puts up with her share of roommate nightmares, broken heart, followed by a marriage from hell--ultimately fleeing her husband and falling for the sweetest taboo during her honeymoon in Italy.

A little bit of "New York, New York," "California Dreamin'" and "That's Amore," WEDLOCKED will tug at her heartstrings, tinkle your funny bone and delight your senses! Can't wait for the next book by this talented author!

I don't have as much time to read as I used to since I have an 18th month old but once he went to bed and I started reading this novel I felt myself drawn into Rebecca's world and couldn't put it down. Rebecca is someone we can all relate to. She goes after her dreams and all the ups and downs that go along with it. You get swept into her love life, family life and inner struggles with a side of humor. I've often laughed out loud while reading it (all the while getting strange looks from husband lol). This novel takes you from NY to LA back to NY and to Italy. I highly recommend this novel and look forward to reading her other novels.

Your wedding day is supposed to be one of the best days of your life. For Rebecca, it was the day she realized she'd just made the biggest mistake of her life and she is anything but the happy bride all her guests think she is. She finds out there's a lot about her new husband she didn't know, things he deliberately kept from her. Between the wedding and the honeymoon, Bonnie Trachtenberg takes the reader back in time to show what led to Rebecca's awful decision, a ruined acting career and a broken heart. Then Trachtenberg shows us just how disastrous a honeymoon can be and the mysterious ways in which love works.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading "Wedlocked." I laughed and cheered Rebecca on. It felt like she was a real person I knew. I was thrilled when she followed her dream to become an actress and I was angry on her behalf when her first love broke her heart. My heart went out to her when she realized she made a mistake by getting married. Trachtenberg is skilled in creating realistic characters.

I like the way Trachtenberg easily weaves together the present and the past without interrupting the flow of the story. Well, honestly, there's not a single thing about this book I didn't like. There's just the right amount of humor and somehow, everything works out. I look forward to reading Trachtenberg's next book.
This hilarious take on love and marriage will captivate readers and have them laughing out loud. The easy, flowing pace and genuine, easy to love characters make this book hard to put down. The entertaining and well thought out plot bring everything together to make this a truly great read. Women of all ages will love this book. I recommend this book for high school age and up.
