# A June Bride # book review

Book Review: A June Bride

It takes a reality TV show for Wynne to realize love isn't just a game.

Wynne Hardy never thought she'd get engaged on a reality TV show, but when she met Andy on The Rejection Connection, the two of them hit it off. Now he's asked her to marry him, much to the public's delight and fascination. They're all set to wed on live TV in a seaside ceremony at the height of the wedding season.

But just as Wynne thinks all her dreams are coming true, her ex-boyfriend walks back into her life at the worst possible time. Steve broke her heart years ago, and she's still sorting through her feelings for him. Her heart isn't as clear as her head that it's past time to move on-even though she's engaged to Andy.

At a local TV talk show appearance, Wynne meets Meredith, who won another reality TV show-Marathon Mom-proving herself nothing short of a superhero. As Wynne's beach wedding plans spin out of control, Meredith offers to help, unknowingly stepping on Wynne's secret feelings . . . and exposing some secrets Meredith has been keeping to herself. Can these two reality stars get real about their feelings? Will Wynne go through with her televised wedding and be the perfect June bride the network is looking for?

Another quick and easy read, but I confess to not loving this one as much as I did the others in the series. It just felt under developed and truth be told, I think that it would have made a fantastic full length novel. Sadly, there were just too many unanswered questions.. Why did Wynne and Callum break things off? Why did she choose Andy on the show? Why did she let things go so far when she was so unsure? I'd love to see this expanded out into a full length novel that allows the characters to develop and for the reader to really get to know them. All in all, not a bad read, but not a favorite.
