Synopsis: Growing up in a Seattle bridal finishing school never prepared Abrianna Cunningham to become one of the brides, but now Wade Ackerman, who has always been the reliable boy next door, is indicating he wants to be more than friends. And even the people closest to Abrianna believe Wade is the man she should marry. So why is she having such a hard time choosing between Wade Ackerman and Priam Welby?

Watching Welby's relentless pursuit of Abrianna is making Wade's blood boil. Welby can offer her wealth and security, but what about character and integrity? Surely Abrianna can see past Welby's smooth tongue and fine clothes. Can't she?
Caught between the devil and the boy next door, either choice she makes will change Abrianna's life forever.


My rating: 4 Stars

My review: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest reviewI received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Abrianna has been one of my favorite characters in this series. I am usually partial to red-heads, and ones that get into an inordinate amount of trouble because of their stubborn streak are my favorites. Throughout the series, I have felt that she has been the most well-developed out of all of the characters. She is definitely the strongest in her faith, and that faith cements her decisions that may or may not seem to be in her best interests.
Wade has been a character in the series that has been in the shadows as a main character. I like how he has been given room to grow and develop in this book, and how the author has not allowed him to remain stagnant. The only complaint I would have is that Wade tends to be overshadowed by Abrianna, and perhaps that is the author's purpose.
The end makes the reader think that this truly is the end of the series, perhaps a spin-off series could be possible, especially with Flora now on the scene.

Overall, this was a great book (and series!) to read, to enjoy stepping into the lives of these characters in the bridal school, to watch how their faith has grown, and love has become part of their lives, even through all of the mishaps and trouble the characters have found themselves in..
