Now, she’s maid of honor at her once best friend Caroline’s wedding. And she’ll have to face her former friends and roommates – and Ethan. There is definitely world building in this first of the series, and explanations of who, what and why everyone was then and is today. I would call Something Old a second chance romance in many ways. Delaney and Ethan aren’t done yet, perhaps they never will be. But that will come at a cost to emotions, pride and the willingness to forgive each other. Ethan was a strong, determined man. Delaney was broken, even if she didn’t acknowledge it and her actions had long reaching consequences. So not only a second chance romance, but the possibility of building bridges back to friendships that once mattered so much… and hopefully would once more.
We now have a feel for the players in this series, and I’m looking forward for the next story in this series. I’d recommend this one for Romance lovers who enjoy the twists and turns of rebuilding a life with friends and a lover.
*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story. It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*
Delaney Winters' life fell apart five-years-ago; she lost everything she held dear. After her father's arrested as a criminal mastermind behind a Ponzi scheme, she lost her life style, social standing, wealth, home, and the love of her life, Ethan Van Owen. She never expected to see Ethan again. She has done her best to forge a new life very different from her former high society life. Hiding away in the bowels of the museum where she works Delaney finds Caroline, her best friend after college and before the implosion of her life, sitting across from her. Five years later, bride-to-be Carolyn's determined to bring her 3 friends and incidentally her bridesmaids back together again, heal old wounds, and play matchmaker.
Fireworks are in store for the week Caroline has reserved on their favorite island. She's determined every one will be as happy as she is with her love. However, she has not taken in account the volatile emotions, old wounds, and history involved. My review of Something Old follows.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Megan Ryder created a romance in which the emotions roll from the beginning pages. Filled with guilt, insecurity, vanity, and a host of other emotions, Something Old holds the reader's attention. Watching Ethan and Delaney try to mend and move forward was heart breaking at times. Would they ever get it right and come together as a unite? Sorry, you will have to the read the book.
Ryder's writing's clear and easy to follow as the reader becomes involved in the lives of her characters. She gives us a look into high society, where appearance is everything; and I found it an ugly place. With few values and less compassion for their fellow-man, I was amazed they did not scratch each others eyes out; actually nails were not needed for this bunch, as words worked very well. However, bridesmaids, Ethan, and Delaney grew progressively throughout the book until they became people I could befriend. I was cheering for Delaney in hopes she would come to realize Ethan deserved the chance to know the truth and make his own decisions.
The story-line and plotting was very good and the pace was smooth and steady; I was surprised by the twists in the plot. All good stories have a good villain and Ryder created several for this emotional story. Between Ethan's father and his step-mother I didn't know who to shake first. I wanted to shake them until their eyes rolled; snobs, manipulative, greedy, with few values except what wealth can provide, they were easy to dislike. In the same token, as the bridesmaids grew in the story and took a look at themselves, they were able to come together again as friends and sisters of the spirit.
In concluding my review of Something Old, I found a solid story-line with well-developed characters and smooth pacing. This book may not be everyone as Something Old has strong love scenes, they are not erotic, however they are intense and hot.
