Synopsis

Every girl has dreams of meeting Prince Charming, or at least I know I did.

A fairy tale-like meeting of love at first site.
Real life and fairy tales are very different.

I’m just a small town Indiana girl that had a chance encounter with one of Hollywood’s golden boys. You may think you know where this story goes—not even close.

Life is different. Marriage is hard. It’s even worse when you’re strangers.

My Review

This book gets 3.75 stars because “What?!?!” Let me stop there for a second and say that, in the end, I really liked this book. The characters were well developed, had strength and depth, and were essentially a great match. You could tell that they fell hard for each other and that they had a friendship in addition to their passionate relationship. Wren was a strong, smart, and genuine character. She didn’t completely submit to Weston and his behavior, nor did she wallow in despair over the life she was thrown into or when things got too tough. She stood up for herself and became even more independent through it all. I also loved how Weston supported and cared for Wren and later how he came to realize his faults and what he had to do to make his marriage work.

Now back to…What?!?! I had a really hard time believing this one and buying into the beginning and quickie marriage. And what the hell was her mother doing? I felt exactly like Wren did; she was being “traded for two sheep” so to speak. Clearly her mom knew who Weston was and was essentially sending her off with a rich man. I don’t care how much love and adoration she saw in his eyes when he looked at her daughter. There’s no way a good mom would leave her 18 year old daughter, who is still in high school, with a stranger in Vegas! Ugh!!! I really wanted to stop reading after 5 chapters, but this was an ARC, so I felt obligated to finish it. As I continued to read, I realized that the story had potential. The writing was good. The story flowed and was well thought out and executed. If you can get past the age difference and how they were thrown together, you might actually enjoy this story. I did. It took a bit of a struggle for me to accept the fact that she was still in high school; it wasn’t really the age thing that bugged me. One other issue I had was the nickname Weston gave Wren. There’s nothing wrong with it, but his calling her “baby girl” threw me out of every sex scene. I call my daughter that every day, so it was difficult for me to not think of her every time I heard him say that.

All in all, this was a decent read with characters I would be interested in reading more about. I loved all the “extras” in this book. The secondary characters were wonderful! Maybe we’ll get a series out of it.
