Bride in Bloom (The Beachy Bride #1) by J.B. Hartnett



 For Victoria, it started with the perfect dress and the perfect man...well, she thought he was perfect. 

For Cameron, it started with a devoted wife and a bright future...until he discovered devotion was never high on his wife's list of marital duties. 

When trust is tested and faith in the power of true love is lost, there is only way one to restore it: 

Give that person everything you’ve got, nurture her, love her… 

And watch her bloom. 

In the first installment of The Beachy Bride series, we experience the love story of Victoria and Cameron. Both are no stranger to heartache, but both believe in the power of love.

3.5 stars


Our heroine is Victoria, a woman who's getting married with Josh. She's building a house with him and even though she had been avoiding serious commitment, because of her parents and their failed marriage, he managed to get under her skin and accepted his proposal.

Cameron is trying to pick up his pieces, after his wife, Amanda, left him with the man that she had been cheating on him. He discovers something and he hates secrets, especially when he cares about Victoria and knows that she will be needing him soon when secrets will be revealed.

When shit hits the fan, Cameron is there for her, giving her time to heal her wounds while he's building the castle for his fairy princess. Together they will heal each other and try to get their desired happily ever after.

“When you lose something you thought was real, that experience gives you perfect clarity and I trust that this. What’s happening between us is real.”


So, this was a great read. I enjoyed the writing, the characters, the personalities of secondary characters and Cameron's pursue methods. But I felt like something was missing. Maybe because we didn't really see their relationship and how they bonded, but we only saw that they had dates, they talked and we didn't see more into them. It was like it was skimmed somehow.

The whole concept with the fairy and the castle was sweet, but in my opinion maybe it was also over the top. I mean he was building a home for her without being already together, her realisation of her feelings felt too abrupt and a few things just didn't convince me.

But overall it was a nice read, with people in their effort to pick up their pieces after heartbreak and find the courage to trust other people, when others had broken that trust. It had also a few funny scenes and I appreciated these moments, making this a light read.

“You’re like a bad penny,” I said, squinting at him.

“Sometimes, you need a penny when you least expect it, Victoria. ”
