Review: A June Bride by Marybeth Whalen

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GRYXPFA/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00GRYXPFA&linkCode=as2&tag=chrisbooksrev-20&linkId=EFLS445MZEPV2MRFAbout the book:
The reality show ended with an engagement, so why doesn’t this feel like the fairy tale she thought it would be?

The Rejection Connection hardly sounds like the place to fall in love, but Wynne Hardy walked off the reality-TV set with an engagement ring. And in the whirlwind of publicity and preparation that follows a TV-bride-to-be in her fifteen minutes of fame, Wynne barely has time to consider how she really feels about her new fiancé . . . to say nothing of how she still feels about her ex.

As the wedding plans develop, so too do Wynne’s doubts: Is she in love with Andy? Or is this really about Callum—the ex-boyfriend who sent her onto Rejection Connection in the first place? A nationally televised snub might be the best revenge . . . but is it a good reason to get married?

When Callum resurfaces at the worst possible moment, Wynne can’t help wondering if she’s made a huge mistake. Is her marriage a publicity stunt? And what happens when the cameras stop rolling, and she has a husband she barely knows?

My thoughts:


I didn't really care for this novella. I thought the main character was a little too trusting/naive. I didn't like the ending, either. There wasn't much to the romance and I would have enjoyed the book more had the characters spent more time together.

I liked the reality TV show aspect and thought the book was written well, but other than that there sadly wasn't much I personally liked. An okay read.
