Review Kiss the Bride by Lori Wilde
THERE GOES THE BRIDE
The moment Texas socialite Delaney Cartwright touches the veil, she envisions a stranger’s dark eyes and sexy lips. But she can’t disappoint her family and call off her nuptials to her nice, predictable childhood friend. So instead she tries to spice things up by abducting her fiancé for a night of passion . . . only to grab the wrong guy! Now those oddly familiar eyes and lips inspire an even more outrageous plan . . .
ONCE SMITTEN, TWICE SHY
Tish Gallagher is a wedding videographer whose business is about to go bust. Then she makes a wish on the lucky wedding veil . . . and sees the man she never stopped loving: her ex-husband, secret service agent Shane Tremont. When her dream job of recording the first daughter’s wedding appears out of the blue, Tish knows it’s her only shot to get out of the red. Just one teensy glitch: Shane is the groom.
I’m typically a fan of Lori Wilde. Normally she is just this shy of too cute, like nauseatingly so, so the books are JUST cutesy enough that your’e kind of into it, and just on this side of WTF i’m gonna barf its so sacchrine. Unfortunately this ended up on the other side of that sacchrine line. I got midway through There goes the Bride and bolted. I could not finish that novella for anything. It was just something about the main character Delaney.
Delaney was just so stereotypical, willing to give into her overbearing mother, father’s kind of semi emotionally absent, crazy sibling whose death drove her to want to be perfect for her family. So she’s so passive then she becomes this wild and crazy being that is just determined to drive everyone over the wall. Its just such a leap and I couldn’t make it. She just had nothing that kept me there, that made me want to keep reading about her, that compelled me to listen to her story. It was just all surface no depth and it was uninteresting.
