Be careful what you wish for as you may get it.
The Right Kind of Rogue (Playful Brides) - Valerie Bowman
This was a fun read. Meg is an interesting woman, very determined, although she was not prepared for what she got. Hart allowed his past hurts to color his views of women. I wanted to smack him for not seeing what was right in front of him. Their coming together was well worth the read, and I found this a hard book to put down.

This is my unsolicited review of a story that I received through Netgalley.

Trusting Tess (Bedford Park Brides #2)
Trusting Tess (Bedford Park Brides #2) - Connie Davé Trusting Tess is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit. Connor and Tess are demanding, heartbreaking and inspiring. Ms. Dave took my emotions and wrung them dry with her deeply emotional story of beauty and light and darkness and pain. Sometimes our greatest strengths can turn out to be our biggest weakness. Connie Dave sets out to prove despite the flaws of character and the challenges of life, love is a journey worth taking in the end.

Dual post: Witch Is When Life Got Complicated and The Chase
The Chase (Brides of Beadwell) - Sara Portman
Witch Is When Life Got Complicated (A Witch P.I. Mystery Book 2) - Adele Abbott

For some reason BL wants to post the review for The Chase under Witch is When (WIWLGC).  When I change it, the WIWLGC review appears under The Chase....and on and on.  I tried to do a completely separate post, but it still did it.  So, dual post it is.  I'm going to outside and scream now.  Star review is for The Chase.

 

WIWLGC:  2 stars

Jill Gooder (yes, that's her last name) is a PI and a witch. She's new at the witch thing. I liked the first book. But what I like about the first (quirky, fun) was overshadowed by the other issues I had. This, like the first, was very light on the mystery. Jill is a decent main character. What annoyed me, is I wish she would stand up for herself more and be less of a doormat. Just. Say. No. I didn't like the secondary characters as much. I thought they (mainly Jill's sister and cousins) were rude, immature, and just plain annoying. It sucks that a book with so many (human) characters, the one I liked the best was Winky, a cat.

 

 

The Chase:  3.5 stars

Juliana is on the run from her abusive father. She possesses a photographic memory. She found a letter when she was around 12 that mentioned an inheritance when she reached her majority (25). This is the main reason she runs when she does. She sees Michael and asks him (mainly because of her cane and limp) for help in getting to London. 
Michael is on his way to London to answer his father's summons. His father has decided it is time for Michael to get married. His bride has been picked out.
I did like both Michael and Juliana. Michael comes across as a good person already; mainly because of the way he treats Gelert (his dog). Juliana is a little harder to like at first. I believe it's because of her background. She doesn't trust that once Michael finds out he won't return her to her father. (The whole property thing, what good girl leaves her father's protection- on purpose?)
I both liked and didn't like the resolution with Juliana's father. Yes, he got what he deserved, but it was too quick and the whole issue with Juliana's mother could have been more. Michael was pleasantly surprised with how his family viewed him (that was nice). I also liked that Juliana's inheritance seemed to be hers to do what she wanted with it (at least with how I interpreted the epilogue). 
3.5* rounded up for GR since GR doesn't "do" 1/2 stars.

Jack (7 Brides for 7 Soldiers) by Julia London
Jack (7 Brides For 7 Soldiers) (Volume 5) - Julia London

 

Julia London created a powerful tale of impactive characters. Jack is realistic, informative and inspirational entertainment. A smile goes a mile. Those words kept popping into my head throughout Jack and Whitney's intense relationship. Bruised by life and wounded by a traumatic event, Jack closes himself off from the rest of the world. It takes an optimistic baker and a persistent attraction to open his eyes and reawaken his heart. Jack takes on PTSD with a remarkable sensitivity that is enlightening, inspiring and full of hope. Empathy can move mountains, change lives and inspire faith.

The Bride Says No by Cathy Maxwel $1.99!
[ THE BRIDE SAYS NO: THE BRIDES OF WISHMORE (BRIDES OF WISHMORE #1) ] By Maxwell, Cathy ( Author) 2014 [ Compact Disc ] - Cathy Maxwell

What happens when a bride says no?

 

He is the bastard son of a duke, arrogant, handsome, a little bit dangerous, and, of course, one of the most sought-after bachelors in London. He is also about to be publically jilted by some chit of a girl! Blake Stephens' pride isn't about to let him be humiliated, so he charges after his bride to the wilds of Scotland, determined to bring her to the altar.

What happens when the heart says yes?

 

He is promised to one woman, but discovers his soul stirred by . . . the chit's sister! Lady Aileen Davidson's reputation was ruined ages ago, which is why she's buried herself in the country, but her fiery spirit and bold beauty threaten to bring Blake to his knees, making him wonder if he has proposed to the wrong lass.

 

And now he must make a choice: marry for honor . . . or marry for love?
