For Victoria, it started with the perfect dress and the perfect man...well, she thought he was perfect. 

For Cameron, it started with a devoted wife and a bright future...until he discovered devotion was never high on his wife's list of marital duties. 

When trust is tested and faith in the power of true love is lost, there is only way one to restore it: 

Give that person everything you’ve got, nurture her, love her… 

And watch her bloom. 

In the first installment of The Beachy Bride series, we experience the love story of Victoria and Cameron. Both are no stranger to heartache, but both believe in the power of love. 

*This book contains mature content for an audience of 18 years or older. Sexual scenes M/M and M/F *

Bride in Bloom, by J.B. Hartnett, was such a fun and romantic reading escape! From the beautiful book cover to the captivating characters, this book was filled with funny, tender, steamy and emotional moments.

Victoria and Cameron were really great characters to follow. They both suffered from an unexpected betrayal caused by the people who they loved the most. It's hard to put all the pieces of a broken heart together, but Victoria and Cam created an incredible bond that turned into true love. Cameron knew without a doubt that Victoria was meant to be his ''Fairy Princess'' He was incredibly romantic and determined. He asked Victoria to give him time to prove that he was ''The One" Their relationship started with stolen kisses and romantic gestures and turned out to be one extremely heartwarming love story. 

I had such a blast reading about Victoria and Cam. Their story kept me glued to my seat from beginning to end! Be prepared to swoon a lot! Cam is such an amazing person! Every little thing that he did for Victoria made me love him even more! I loved how Victoria trusted Cam with her fragile heart. Nobody understands her pain like he does. He made every single moment that they had together memorable. 

This was my first time reading a book by J.B. Hartnett. I have her Leaves series waiting on my TBR list, but I still did not have time to read it. I will make sure I read them soon. Bride in Bloom was written from dual POV's and I really liked it! Her writing style is really captivating and it's easy to relate to the characters. This book would make the perfect romantic comedy :)

The cast of supporting characters in this book were amazing! Friends and family are important when you are going through a rough time. They had a big role in this story and I loved to get to know each and every one of them. I'm not sure who will get their book next, but I'm crossing my fingers for Kath. I really liked her! She's super fun and she's an amazing friend to Victoria.

I give, Bride in Bloom, by J.B. Hartnett, 4 romantic, delightful, heart-warming, second-chance-at-love stars!
