Review - - Almost a Bride

Almost a Bride
By Jo Watson
Publisher: Forever
Release Date: January 31, 2017

Almost a Bride by Jo Watson had me laughing out loud from the first pages of the book. What a fun read. It had all the elements of a sexy, romantic comedy. The book starts out in South Africa which is a refreshing change and takes the reader on a vacation to a tropical isle. What else can you ask for? Sexy location, sexual tension and some pretty hot characters. Throw in a zany, supportive, loving group of friends who would do anything for you and you have a 5 out 5 star read.

Ann, the main character, seems to lead a charmed life. She has the perfect flat, the perfect job and the perfect boyfriend. Yeah, well that lasts for about a page and a half and all because of one stellar pair of shoes. If it hadn’t been for those shoes she never would have walked in on her boyfriend and his co-worker working out some, um, kinks. From there her day and life pretty much spiral downward in a vortex of epic proportions.

Left with little else, her friends convince her to go with them on a vacation. She gets there, gets sunburned - yes, we are not giving her a quick HEA - and discovers Chris, a scruffy, gorgeous, writer- blocked screenwriter. AND, as luck would have it, her ex-boyfriend and his co-worker lover who are planning their wedding. Could life get any better!

Well, it does and in a grand way. Chris and Anne strike a bargain to show the other two love birds that there is room in paradise for more than one happy, happy couple.

In the end, Anne and Chris scheme and plan and end up falling in love but their HEA comes with a price but there’s groveling from half a world away, like the whole world away, and it’s FUN-tastic.

This is book 2 of a three book series called Destination Love. It could easily be read as a stand alone. But me? Naturally, I am going to go back to the first and finish with the last. I can’t wait!
