About The Jilted Bride’s New Groom
Being left at the altar was the worst that ever happened to her–until she opened her heart again and fell for the best man.
Winning a contest for Arizona’s Cutest Couple gave Samantha Clayton the idea that she and her fiance, Rance, were ready to say “I do.” When the fateful day came and he instead said, “I don’t,” she was completely shell-shocked. Now, six months later, she’s finally putting her life back together, this time with a dream to own a bed and breakfast. When her plans start to unravel, who should step in but none other than her ex-fiance’s best friend, Drake Butler, a man she’d rather not ever speak to again? After all, she’s sure that he’s the one who convinced Rance to call off the wedding.
Drake Butler just wants to help Samantha. He still feels bad over the loss of their friendship and wants to repair it. Stepping in to prevent her from sinking her hard-earned money into a shabby building is what a good friend–and a good realtor–would do, right? Only Samantha doesn’t see it that way. By the time Drake realizes that what he feels for her may be more than “like,” a crisis comes up and Rance needs Samantha’s help. When all is said and done, can Drake find a way to convince her that he’s the right groom for her? And will Samantha see what was there all along and be willing to reach for a new dream?
The Jilted Bride’s New Groom is book 2 in the Love Confessions series, but it can also be read as a standalone. Feel the joy as as each couple confesses their love for each other in special ways.
I’m always a fan of contemporary romance. This one by Laura Walker just made me happy when I read it. I loved the way she wrote the characters. And her plot was awesome!
Samantha is such a great character. I loved that she’d been through some hard things, but she didn’t let them stop her from going after her dreams. And she didn’t let them stop her from falling in love again, even though she wanted to.
I loved that the reader gets to see things through Drake’s eyes as well. Drake doesn’t want to trust or get married, because of his family situation. I loved that he was able to grow through the book, and realize that he wasn’t his father. He went out of his way to help Samantha do the things she needed to to get her dreams. And to make it through her ex’s wedding.
The plot of this one kept me reading. I wanted to know what the characters were going to do next, and how things were going to work out for them.
I was sent an e-copy of The Jilted Bride’s New Groom as a gift from the author. All opinions are my own.
