#REVIEW: A Royal Christmas Wedding by Rachel Hauck
My Rating: 4 1/2 stars
My Review: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher.
This has been my favorite series to read in the past few years. After all, I grew up dreaming of being a princess. These books have been a great light read for me, not too emotional, not too heavy. Just the right mix of suspense, romance, fantasy....and the best part is that it is clean. I'm definitely not one to snub my nose at a hot and heavy erotica, but there are times when a reader needs to realize that sex doesn't equate romance and vice versa. You can still have an amazing book with characters that you invest yourself in emotionally without having heavy bedroom scenes, or bawling your eyes out scenes because there's too much angst between the characters.
Colin and Avery were great characters in this story. Avery was the strong, independent young woman who knew what love was, knew who she loved, experienced heartbreak, and yet was willing to put herself out there again for the man she loved. Colin however, I could have kicked a few times. He and his fear of paternal rejection was killing me. There were times when I wanted to yell at him to grow a spine. Eventually though, love wins out, and all is alright in the kingdom of Brighton again.
I didn't like the complete ending of the series though. There aren't many series' endings I like, but this one seemed too hurried, too final. I will miss Brighton very much.
