Bridesmaid and the Beast

Naughty Nuptials

Sophia is not exactly thrilled about her role in the upcoming wedding of an acquaintance of she and her boyfriend Greg. It's bad enough that she just had to spend 200 dollars on a God-awful dress that "the designer should be shot for" but she's having doubts about where her relationship with Greg is going or more to the point NOT going. Things are complicated to say the least after all Greg is a Werewolf and while that's partly a big rush in the love department is it also what's keeping him from popping the question to her?

I can't quite put my finger on the reason that I didn't connect with this story. I think part of it was the fact that it is a shorter story, and that we don't get to know the characters and what drives them as much before they start to heat up the pages. That took a bit away from this one for me. Ms. LaCroix does have a good writing style and the love scenes are indeed hot and spicy for those of you that like erotica. This one is good if you're looking for a shorter story for the night but if you're looking for a more in depth romance you may feel a little disappointed.

Book Blurb for Bridesmaid and the Beast

Bridesmaid and the Beast is a companion story to Beast in My Bed.

It's been eight blissful months since I, Sophia Monroe, Luckiest Woman in the World, found Greg, my British hunk of burning love, who also happens to be a complete animal in bed. But just when I thought life couldn't be sweeter, both of us were tapped to be in a coworker's wedding, which got me thinking — why hasn't Greg mentioned the M word?

So now, in the middle of surviving a bridal "storm", dealing with a drunken bride and trying to live down the sorbet-colored Bridesmaid Dress from Hell, I've become obsessed with wondering what I was — or wasn't — doing that made Greg altar-shy.

I'm trying to be patient…really! But at thirty-two, I'm just not satisfied with "boyfriend" anymore. If I have anything to say about it, Greg will be popping more than champagne corks before this wedding is through.
