The attraction sizzles, but she needs to keep her distance as she no longer trusts romance after her parent’s marriage imploded. Mona’s shocked to learn that her mom and dad still love each other, but her mom feels like she can’t recommit because Mona needs her. So Mona plays cupid and comes up with the perfect plan to prove she’s emotionally moved on—she’ll ask Ryne to be her pretend boyfriend.
Mona’s confident she won’t lose her heart, but when her pretend boyfriend starts to seem like the real deal. Should she keep up the charade or follow her heart?
Title: Designing His Bride
Series: Brides of Blossom, Texas #3
Author: Lenora Worth
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: January 28, 2020
Publisher: Tule Publishing
My Rating: 4.5 stars
Designing His Bride is the third title in the Brides of Blosson, Texas series, and frankly, this tender story is why I read Romance, especially stories from Lenora Worth. It’s just that simple and complex at the same time.
For far different reasons Mona and Ryne mistrust love, the forever kind of love. They’ve both been hurt, although in different ways. Now a bit of pretend for a good cause will bring two people together who might not have worked without the chance to get to know the real, true person each was hiding behind their pain. Designing His Bride is that chance to discover that loves comes in unlikely places when we least expect it but most deserve it. And it proves that love can last forever, in spite of roadblocks, potholes, and misunderstandings along that journey. When the chemistry sizzles, when the looks between them are tender, and when it feels more wrong to walk away than to stay and fight for what is building between them – then they have the chance for a lifetime love. They simply have to risk their hearts along the way for that best of all rewards.
The rest – well, you’ll discover that for yourself for I won’t spoil a moment of a love story that has all the feels and more than any reader of Romance could possibly wish for. I loved this one and would not hesitate to recommend Mona and Ryne’s story or the entire series to anyone who loves a good Romance with believable people, a few tears, a lot of laughs, and sizzling moments that will have you believe in happy ever after possibilities.
