  • Lighthearted Christmas Romance

    Pretending to love someone would not be easy especially during the holidays when you have to attend a lot of family get togethers. Carter & Ruth think they can pull off the perfect plan of a fake engagement so there families and friends will keep from setting them up! But, what happens if one of them discovers they want to make it a real romance? This is definitely a lighthearted Christmas Romance book that will put a smile on your face and you will want to grab a drink and curl up in bed and enjoy! I received an advanced copy from NetGalley and these are my willingly given thoughts and opinions.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Enjoyable story

    For two people who aren’t looking for relationships, their fake one took off pretty fast! Ruth has sworn off men but she’s willing to go on a blind date with Carter, even though she’s sure he’s not her type. Carter has a different reason for agreeing to the date...he needs his family and friends to stop feeling sorry for him. The speed of the pretend courtship did take me by surprise, but right away I loved the chemistry and friendship Ruth and Carter displayed. These two were fun and Ruth was great at getting Carter to be more carefree and less work-driven. Not having read the previous book, I might have been harsh in my apathy towards Carter’s brother Lincoln and his wife Summer, but I was quickly Team Carter and anyone who had hurt him, unintentionally or not, was not anyone I was prepared to like. Ruth’s step family was a weird dynamic for me, though. With no close friends to speak of and her mother deceased, Ruth’s only close relationship is with her younger step sister. But it was the behavior of the step father and brothers that confused and annoyed me. They were, to me, a weird prop, only existing to explain where Kayla lives. I wonder if it would have been better for Kayla to just be a friend and have Ruth had no family at all. Regardless of that complaint, Christmas Bride was an enjoyable read with a great couple and interesting storyline. Even though part of a series, it can definitely be read as a stand-alone, like it was for me.. 3.75 stars my thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the advance copy. It was a great addition to my seasonal reading list.

  • Sweet romance!

    Christmas Bride has two of my favorite things. Christmas and fake relationships. It's an odd combo but also a pretty romantic story. What started out as a fake relationship to get others to back off of setting Carter up on blind dates, turns into a couple who actually date and get to know each other without any pressure. There was no first judgments that could interfere with moving forward. They still dated without feeling the need to impress each other. They truly got to know each as their real selves. The only downside to this is when real feelings develop, there is that hesitancy to express them in fear that the other doesn't feel the same. I was just as anxious as Carter and Ruth when it all became real. I loved seeing them grow as a couple and wanted it to work out for them just as much as they did. For a fake relationship, this turned out to be a pretty romantic love story. I really enjoyed it and it gave me the feel good vibes like Christmas does.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Charming fake Christmas relationship

    A refreshing Christmas fake relationship. Reading Christmas Bride reminded me why I enjoy Noelle Adams so much. Ruth is honest, forthright, a tad of a edge to her. She's in a dating slump, and agrees to a semi blind date. She knows of Carter, the handsome, nice guy, wealthy and a touch older. Everyone thinks Carter is heartbroken, just had his hopes dashed. He never knew Ruth until the blind date and concocts a scheme to fake date until after the holidays. I really liked both good guy Carter (we need more good men!) and the honest Ruth. She has a good relationship with her stepsister and family does play a big part in this book. So, just say yes to this charming read.

    Thanks for your feedback!
