|Series: Bride, Texas #3|
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: AEJ Creative Works
Released: October 3, 2017
Navy Richards is thirty-five years of tired--tired of dating the same men, working a demanding job, and getting her heart broken over and over again. Her aunt has always spoken highly of the matchmaker in Bride, Texas, and Navy knows the legends of the statue there like the back of her hand.
Gavin hates everything about the legend of Bride. The statue. The stupid bus station. The blondes who come to town believing in such ridiculous things. As if a silly dance and a simple visit with his eighty-three-year-old grandmother are going to help a woman find a man.
So maybe he's had his heart broken a time or two. Or five. Or maybe he's too focused on caring for his grandparents to date. Or maybe, just maybe, he needs a little bit of the Bride magic to make him realize that just because Navy believes in the legends he hates doesn't mean she's not the one for him. Can Gavin and Navy navigate their differences to discover they could be a perfect match?
My Rating & Thoughts: 🌟 🌟 🌟 (3 stars)
“Do not linger on the storms of life. Do not spent time wishing and
waiting for what might be. Choose to be happy now.”
These characters were enjoyable, but the storyline was a bit lacking for me. I couldn’t get on board with the legend of the statue and I thought the conflicts were overcome too easily, most disagreements were just suddenly resolved. Gavin has been hurt in the past and wants to stay away from anyone who believes the legend. Navy has come to town because of the legend but is not looking to stay in town. Their first meeting doesn’t go well, but after they get to know each other an attraction develops and they decide to take a chance. I enjoyed the chemistry between Navy and Gavin and their interactions were enjoyable. Both have hurdles to overcome in order to move forward and decisions they need to make for their future. Will that future be together or apart?
