Meet Victoria & Cameron in this fabulous stand alone!



bride in bloomFor Victoria, it started with the perfect dress and the perfect man…well, she thought he was perfect.

For Cameron, it started with a devoted wife and a bright future…until he discovered devotion was never high on his wife’s list of marital duties.

When trust is tested and faith in the power of true love is lost, there is only way one to restore it:

Give that person everything you’ve got, nurture it, love it…

And watch her bloom.

You know those books that just make you smile? This is that book. It is hot and steamy and has broken and flawed characters, but it is full of wonderful conversations and characters and a whole lot of snark thrown in. I adored it.

Victoria was planning her wedding. She knew what she wanted. She knew that he was a great guy. Though she loved him deeply, she never felt like everything was perfect. She will go where he goes and she will be the best wife she can be. But when push comes to shove, it is not her that runs. Of course, he is not running from what he doesn’t want. He is running to what he does want. Of course, he probably would have gone through with it. He loved Tori but, was she the one?

Cameron was married to a beautiful woman. He made those vows. He went home to her every night and was as devoted to her as any great husband should be. She didn’t share his level of commitment. And when it all came down to it, he knew she wasn’t the one for him. His mother told him when he was ready he would find his fairy princess and he would know.

But somewhere in Cam’s heart, he has known for a while and after what he discovered, he would be damned if he would let her marry his boss under false pretenses.

I have to tell you, I immediately fell in love with the characters. Victoria was a strong minded woman and she was going to be fabulous. She was full of life and had a great quirky spunk to her. To her the world was bright and full of color and should never be weighed down by clean lines and unwelcomed homes. She had a flare to her that was amazing. I loved the way she talked to people and the friends that she had. I loved that she had her dreams and was going to make them happen, even after everything went wrong in her life.

Cameron was just something else. He was the perfect man from beginning to end. He has a heart of gold and he knew the next time he gave it to a woman it would be forever and the end of the line for him. He knew who she was, he knew he wanted to give her everything in the world. He didn’t care if it made him look like a softy, he knew and he was determined to have her light in his life. Oh and did I mention how hot he is? The eyes, the body, the voice… the beard.

I immediately was drawn into this story. I knew that no matter what happened, these two were going to be amazing together. But getting to that point was not an easy fight. She wanted things and she had to do them on her own. He was determined to give everything to her, even if she didn’t know it.

And then there was the chair… I am kind of thinking I want a chair like that.

Victoria and her friends bantered in the best way possible, it was raw, it was honest and it was a fun ride and when all of them were together, you never knew what was going to happen.

This book was fabulously written and had so much fun and life to it! Still seeing so much light in the tough parts was touching. I bonded with these characters. I loved that they were not all the same but they all had the same adventurous ways and I fell completely in love with Cam in a matter of pages. A beautiful love, a beautiful dress and that only means one thing:

“I think we both know that with us, there’s a beginning and a middle, but there will never be an end.”

This book is amazing!

After we listened to his one sided argument, my girlfriends and I sat there stunned.

“Remind me to change my panties,” Dee stage whispered to Kath. When he was off the phone, the petite Dee with her dark brown hair and big blue eyes looked at Cam and said, “I will pay you every dollar in my bank account to talk that way to me.”

He jerked his head toward her. “Excuse me?”

“Your voice is like hot fudge dripping off the end of a spoon.” He did have a terrific voice.

“It’s the beard,” I said to my friends. “It makes me want to just climb up onto his face and take a ride on the man-mane. Did I just say that out loud?”
