For Him As WellWill They Find A Way To Maintain him as wellWill they find a way to maintain charade of a loving relationship while resisting the natural attraction and love they both feelWhy did Matty want to marry Dave Was it for his money Would he have loaned her the necessary funds if she had askedIt is a nice loving story with enough friction to make an interesting situation There are contributing characters to provide suspense and details of location enough to make you want to visit WyomingWell written with location details believable characters and enough twists to keep the story interesting and make the reader want the seuel right away This was a very compelling tale The characters demonstrated a wide spectrum of emotions that included changes in an estranged relationship development into a deep abiding love and faith in each other The plot was very believable The story began oddly but eventually changed to an entertaining storyThis is NOT a clean series Those who actually prefer steamy to clean and sweet might not view it as flawed Due to this aspect I recommend it with reservations If you prefer clean and sweet reads avoid this book It is not fair to an author when readers provide bad reviews about steamy scenes if they know they are included in advance I have been guilty of this offense myself It takes a lot of time and effort for an author to research and write each book And there are readers who prefer the material included in this one to a clean and wholesome read However I actually prefer the latter This does have steamy sex scenes so if you like a sex free book this is not it If you enjoy steamy reads jump into this book looking forward to plenty Unfortunately for those that prefer a clean and wholesome read this one should be avoided I really wish that publishers notated this in their descriptions How very much is wrong with this awful bookwhere to begin You have already read this stale marriage of convenience plot like a few hundred thousand times nothing original and fresh to see here Folks move along Sometimes the reasons and motives for being trapped into such stupidity are handled skillfully than
others but thisbut this the pits no sense whatsoever For fiction to work the characters dialogue thought processes etc must vaguely resemble something that would emerge from a critter who could pass for a human being these critters could not The inconsistencies and stupidities were too numerous to count but there were a few that bothered me than others It is bad enough to have an obnoxious sociopathic heroine or an obnoxious Too Dumb To Live heroine but an obnoxious Too Dumb To Live sociopathic heroine give me a break Mattie is supposedly educated brilliantLOL has a good job she loves in Chicago so with so many other life options the no big whoop drama of losing She wants than anything is to save her family’s ranch Even if that means swallowing her pride and asking Dave to marry herMatty’s p to something – Dave knows that much Just as he knows that Matty needs help so of course he’ll provide it just ,
review Indian Paintbrush Wyoming Wildflowers Book 1Run down ranch is just missing in
Action She Is Supposedly Too Proud OrShe is supposedly too proud or or something to ask or accept help from Dave but if she just adds FRAUD to the mix she suddenly finds it morally okay huh Then she dubs him Snidely Whiplash but wait a minute since SHE is the deceitful villain with the nefarious plot shouldn t she call Dave Nell Dave is supposedly a hot shot lawyer and he didn t bother to ascertaining the details of her plot before signing on seriously And even though they delayed the fake marriage a few days to think things over nobody gave the tiniest thought to how his sister and parents would feel Oh well we re back to the sociopath thing again Just how does an author create such a long book out of so little material Why by repetitiously dragging it on and on of course and when it can reasonably drag no further by miring it in some of the most convoluted thought processes and stupid senseless dialogue that ever disgraced a novel I will just say that I ve given some really abysmal books two stars and save the one star rating for those that are torture to slog through this was definitely one star Even deleting this stain from my kindle brought little pleasure since this book makes me want to throw my Kindle into the *next hot load and add bleach I started reading this book because of the Wyoming Wildflower part *hot load and add bleach I started reading this book because of the Wyoming Wildflower part the title My family comes from Wyoming and I have always loved Wyoming However there was just too much explicit description of their sex life and not enough actual story line I didn t even finish it because I was tired of reading their intimate contact over and over and not having the story go anywhere I like books about marriages for convenience And "when there s a bit of a history and incredible attraction between the couple definitely p my "there s a bit of a history and incredible attraction between the couple definitely Fortinbras at the Fishhouses up my So I m not sure why I didn t love Almost a Bride IT feels like it had all the right elements but just didn t work for meMatty and Dave were so in love when they were younger Everyone thought they were going to get married and live happily ever after But when Dave brokep with Matty she packed A Way Youll Never Be up her life and moved as far away from Wyoming as she could Now it s six years later and Matty is back and needs Dave s help Oneicky wedding later and the pair have to navigate their sexual tension overcome the hurt from before and decide just what they want from this marriage of convenience Ok I do know why I didn t love this book as much as I had hoped It s because the reason for their marriage in the first place is so flimsy Matty needs a local address for some grant and marrying Dave is the ONLY way she can get it Because that s plausible They couldn t have just moved in together or she rent a cheap house within the city limits No She has to get married to her former flame and not tell him the reasons behind this impulsive marriageNot that Dave is much better He doesn t ask any estions because he s just than happy that Matty needs his help after he broke her heart all those year prior It s just so silly Once you get past the entire premise for the novel if you can get past it you do get a rather sweet novel I liked how Matty and Dave interacted and despite the entirely too obvious ending lets face it It s a romance novel There s only one possible ending they do seem to earn their happy ending It takes a little while for everything to get moving and the slow pace almost caused me to abandon the book but overall I was satisfied with the romance and chemistry between Dave and MattyIf you can overlook a ridiculous premise and slow burn Almost a Bride does deliver a satisfying ending It just takes a little bit of patience on the reader s behalf to get there. S he has all her life Doing what’s best for Matty is second nature Even when it comes to marrying her in name only Although he can’t resist one hot blooded kiss after the I dos Maybe – just maybe – his Matty will become to him than Almost a Brid.
