Launch Day Blitz: Almost a Bride by Jo Watson (Review



Synopsis:

**Newly revised and expanded, Wattpad sensation Jo Watson's ALMOST A BRIDE is now available in print for the first time!**

That awkward moment you catch your boyfriend in bed with another woman and then mistakenly get arrested #chargesdropped

Annie knows life isn't always fair. Sometimes you win. Sometimes you lose. Sometimes you get mistaken for a crazed intruder when you come home early and find your boyfriend wearing nipple clamps with a coworker on the night you thought he was going to propose to you.

The important thing is to move on, and for Annie that means treating herself to a tropical vacation. But when she runs into her ex and his new woman staying at the same resort, reason is washed out to sea. Caught off guard, Annie pretends she's with Chris, a cute screenwriter she meets on the beach. With his own writing blocked, Chris is happy to help Annie craft a story to save face. Soon Annie isn't just getting over her ex, she's getting under Chris. As her fictional feelings grow increasingly real, Annie has to decide if she's ready to risk her heart on a new relationship.

***MY REVIEW***

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

4 out of 5 stars

Almost a Bride was a wonderful follow-up to Burning Moon. Jo Watson really knows how to write a destination romance and Annie and Chris's story was pretty much what I expected and that made me really happy. Everything from the way the book started to the events that lead to Annie going on vacation by herself and meeting Chris was perfect. I loved the way that the author developed this story. Some of the things that happen were a little cringe-worthy through Annie eyes because seriously this girl went through a lot, but at the same time it was so hilariously entertaining that I couldn't stop reading. And while Chris and Annie romance was "fake" for the majority of the book, I loved the way that the author made it real because it made the moments when both Annie and Chris realize they are really in love all the more emotionally satisfying.

However, as much as I loved this book and the crazy shit that happens from beginning to end, there were two thing I was not the biggest fan of. First, I didn't like that Annie got mad at Chris about his script. I'm not going to go to into it because of spoilers, but I found her a bit childish at that point and was totally on Chris's side. And secondly, I felt like Annie did not get sufficient enough revenge against Trevv and Tess. It might be because I am an extremely petty person, but I feel like they should have suffered more. Lol.

But overall I loved this book. Jo Watson has quickly become a favorite author of mine and I'm more excited for more books by her!
