Review: Happily Ever After by Lori Wilde


Two Wedding Veil Wishes novels, together for the first time in print!

Legend claims this antique Irish wedding veil can grant your heart's deepest desire. But be careful what you wish for . . . 

ADDICTED TO LOVE
Growing up in Valentine, Texas, can make anyone believe in happily ever after. Anyone except Rachael Henderson. After having not one but two grooms ditch her at the altar, Rachael commits an uncharacteristic act of rebellion-and gets arrested by sexy Sheriff Brody Carlton, her childhood crush. Rachael's sworn off of love . . . but now she's fantasizing about Brody. Can it be possible to have her wedding cake and eat it too?

ALL OF ME
When a searing betrayal leaves Jillian Samuel heartbroken and wishing for a fresh start, her newly inherited cottage in Salvation, Colorado, seems like the perfect place to find it.

It has a fireplace, a mountain view-and the most gorgeous and infuriating man she's ever met already living inside! Tuck Manning won't give up his home without a fight, so until they can untangle who owns the cottage, the two resolve to live as roommates. But as the days-and nights-heat up, they find that sometimes salvation comes when you least expect it .

I love it when an author provides secondary romances, in this book, there were at least three additional couples who got page time. I found that there was enough of these other characters to detract from the main story, but I did come to care about them especially Rachael's parents. 

"Addicted To Love" is the third book by Lori Wilde in a series about a wedding veil with magical properties to grant the owner their heart's desire. I've read all of them so far and Ms. Wilde delivers a consistent Romantic Read.

Lori Wilde is a supurb author who spins a poignant tale of two lost souls stumbling into each others paths. She introduces secondary characters with just enough detail and action to fill out the story and make you think of them as friends. And she weaves sometimes serious, sometimes humorous, and always tender love story that will stay with you long after you finish the last page.

All Of Me" is the fourth and final book in the 'Wedding Veil Wishes' series and it brings to end a very romantic series. Loved the two main characters, Jillian and Tucker Wilde's flourish for dialog and character description shine. Passionate, intelligent and a little bit sad, you will be swept up in their sweet love story of soul mates who finally meet.Though some of the events were tied up a little too conveniently at the end, you won't mind suspending belief because the book is that good. There are no bad guys and no awful misunderstandings. It's just a fresh and tender slice of life novel. This small town romance is as warm and comforting as the quilts that the ladies create. I definitely recommend this book to everyone!
