⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Good… though not what I expected

Stealing the Bride

While this is a pretty adorable read, it’s also not quite what I was expecting based on the blurb. Yes, our hero does have a one night stand then stops a wedding to steal the bride away. But that’s really not what the book is about.

The story follows Court, a wealthy playboy who sees a woman at a club one night. She seems to exude happiness and fun, and it draws him to her immediately. They both feel the chemistry and decide to have one anonymous night together. When Court wakes up in the morning, he wants more than one night… but he’s alone in the room with a $50 bill. Feeling insulted and so disappointed that his girl got away, Court seeks her out and even goes so far as to stop the wedding she is supposedly the bride at. What he doesn’t expect is a case of mistaken identity, and now he’s left trying to decide what to make of it. As Pascal’s family gets involved in the situation, things get even more complicated, and she left Court behind for a reason, so it won’t be so easy to win her over.

I really enjoyed the writing style and the moments of humor and lightness in the story. Honestly, I was hoping it would be lighter than it turned out to be. The blurb is really only a small portion of the book, and frankly, these two only shared a handful of words on their first night together. There was no playful banter leading up to their sexy night together, it was really a physical encounter. Not really enough to warrant Court’s actions. What drew me to this book is the unique premise, but ultimately it turned into a story about a rich playboy with family drama and a woman who resists the pull between them. While there’s nothing wrong with that, it’s also not what I was hoping to read. I’ve read (and enjoyed) books by this author before, and this is no exception, but don’t let the blurb fool you.
