Review for Beach Blanket Bridesmaid by Margo Bond Collins - 5 out of 5!
Love isn't always a breeze…
“Always a bridesmaid, never a bride.” If one more person says that, Ava Jordan is going to scream. And now she has to be in her brother’s wedding before she can hang up that ugly taffeta permanently.
Even worse, the man she’s been avoiding is the only other guest in this destination wedding to Antigua. Sure, she’s had a crush on Grant for as long as she can remember, but he’s out of her life. Their steamy fling that turned way awkward made sure of that.
Now she’s going to be stuck on a small island with him—so maybe she could have one more steamy fling before it's over for good? But Grant wants forever. And he’s going to do everything he can to convince her of that.
MY REVIEW -
Short and Sweet! Beach Blanket Bridesmaid was really cute, and I love second chance at love stories! Ava is the bridesmaid in her brother's destination wedding in Antigua, and it's going to be a small wedding, so it is just Ava, her brother, her brother's fiancée, and her brother's best man, Grant. Ava and Grant have a past, and both are feeling nervous about seeing the other, so they both have thoughts of avoiding the other, but when wedding activities push them together, they are finding it hard to maintain their distance from each other, and old feelings begin to resurface. Ava and Grant are cute as they try to deny the attraction they feel for each other, and they definitely have some hot moments! I really enjoy books with weddings, and the book being set in a beach town led to some interesting, steamy times. Since this is quite a short read, we don't get too in depth with the characters, but I appreciate what we did learn about the characters, and the whole story was very enjoyable. I definitely would love more for the ending, but the story ends in a nice place. I love that we get POVs from Grant and Ava, so we get a look into how both of them are feeling, and both are likable characters. Loved this sweet romance!
