::About the book::
Abrianna Cunningham has always viewed her longtime friend, Wade Ackerman, as
a protective brother. Lately, however, she's begun to see him differently and finds
herself attracted romantically to him. But she's confused and overwhelmed by these
Wade, on the other hand, has loved Abrianna for some time and has been waiting for her to realize they are more than just friends. When he asks her to marry him, she asks for time to adjust to their changed relationship.
And then there's Priam Welby, who has been relentlessly pursuing Abrianna. Will his underhanded tactics succeed in luring Abrianna into marriage with him?
I enjoyed this book. It didn't have me on the edge of my seat like some books do, but it was interesting. I was kept curious throughout the book on what would happen next. In my opinion that is wonderful because there is nothing worse than constant predictability. I don't always like knowing beforehand what will come next.
My only gripe about this story is that Abrianna annoyed me throughout. I just could not get on board with her, or her personality. Many times while reading the book I almost wished I could reach in the book and just give her a good lecture. She is a very flighty character, and had too many issues with commitment if you ask me. I also did not like her back and forth between Priam Welby and Wade. She was just so blind to Priam's evilness it was frustrating.
I so loved her aunts that ran the Bridal School, and I also loved Wade. The aunts are so caring and down to earth. Wade is also just so endearing. I was so frustrated with Abrianna's cold feet! I can't give too much away on this because I don't want to ruin the story for anyone. You will have to read it to see what I mean.
All the characters are very interesting, and have so much life. This is a great aspect because it almost makes you feel like you have known them your whole life.
This is book three in the Brides of Seattle, but it was the first one in the series I have read. I did not feel lost though despite this being book three. The author does a fantastic job of catching you right up with events and characters.
Give this a read. I'm curious to read the other books in the series to catch up with other characters, and find out more about them in the books to come.
