Because you know how sometimes a yummy, creamy, crab or artichoke dip looks like it is going to be a total mouthgasm with all that cheesy goodness? Then dip your cracker or chip and POW! It’s got a big pop of spiciness that you were totally not expecting? That, my friends is Bride in Bloom. This book was spicy, but it was also incredibly swoony, with a heroine and a hero who are that level of adorable on the scale of a sweet little kitten and a shirtless Justice Joslin holding said kitten. Yep – it’s like that.
I can’t tell you exactly how Victoria and Cameron connect exactly, but that is only part of this beautiful little story. These two are bound to each other — how that works and the paths that get them to each other are simply magical. You have a man that still believes in love and romance and does the most romantic of things. They aren’t what we now know to be “the dramatic grand gesture”, but more the things that prove that Cameron wants nothing more than to make Victoria happy for all their days together. Through his actions, deeds and words, Cameron Muir puts the man in romance.
Victoria is one of those heroines that will make you sigh at her goodness and then laugh your ass off (and maybe blush) at her sassy and dirty mouth/mind. Behind all that goodness is a woman who has seen a bit of heartache and she has worked hard to protect herself. But out of this, Victoria/Tori is willing to open herself to Cam and it made their courtship all the sweeter.
I am a sucker for a good supporting cast and Bride in Bloom had it in spades. From Cam’s family – you will love his mom. To Kath, Ruby, Dee, Victoria’s friends. PS – Dee and Victoria meet very cute. Even Victoria’s mom – I loved her change from page one to the very end. But together, they helped make this story what it was – a love story between not only this amazing couple, but their friends, family and community.
I lost count at the number of times this book made me swoon or smile – it’s a romance!! I know there are more books coming in this series and I cannot wait to read each one. But, I really do want more of these two – they are in my heart. Go get Bride in Bloom.
Our heroine is Victoria, a woman who's getting married with Josh. She's building a house with him and even though she had been avoiding serious commitment, because of her parents and their failed marriage, he managed to get under her skin and accepted his proposal.
Cameron is trying to pick up his pieces, after his wife, Amanda, left him with the man that she had been cheating on him. He discovers something and he hates secrets, especially when he cares about Victoria and knows that she will be needing him soon when secrets will be revealed.
When sh*t hits the fan, Cameron is there for her, giving her time to heal her wounds while he's building the castle for his fairy princess. Together they will heal each other and try to get their desired happily ever after.
“When you lose something you thought was real, that experience gives you perfect clarity and I trust that this. What’s happening between us is real.”
So, this was a great read. I enjoyed the writing, the characters, the personalities of secondary characters and Cameron's pursue methods. But I felt like something was missing. Maybe because we didn't really see their relationship and how they bonded, but we only saw that they had dates, they talked and we didn't see more into them. It was like it was skimmed somehow.
The whole concept with the fairy and the castle was sweet, but in my opinion maybe it was also over the top. I mean he was building a home for her without being already together, her realisation of her feelings felt too abrupt and a few things just didn't convince me.
But overall it was a nice read, with people in their effort to pick up their pieces after heartbreak and find the courage to trust other people, when others had broken that trust. It had also a few funny scenes and I appreciated these moments, making this a light read.
“You’re like a bad penny,” I said, squinting at him.
“Sometimes, you need a penny when you least expect it, Victoria. ”
This book just drug out for me, I got tired of putting it down and then picking it back hoping it would get better, nope never got better, most times it just got worse. So I am scratching my head and thinking I must have read a different book than everyone else, for me this wasn't an amazing, romantic sweet read, it was cheesy and corny.
Last although I am not a huge fan of M/M books, I am okay with reading M/M scene. There is an M/M scene in this book, that I feel for the amount of detail in goes into, it doesn't fit nor does it belong there, especially when there is NO WARNING. Personally if I hated M/M and was reading this, I truly would have been quiet upset coming upon this scene with no warning. It felt like the author was trying to make this read hot and sexy by adding this and just fell off. ****UPDATE***** A warning note regarding this has now been added, fact still remains it was not there when I decided to read this terrible book and should have been from the moment the book was posted, guess the author finally smartened up and decided she should add it!
