    Storytelling at its best!

    Judith James’ Enchanted Bridal shop is very successful; her daughter Hailey has been working there since she was five, along with Angie, Becca, and Ella, who have all become best friends along the years. Six months ago, Becca finally got together with her high school crush, Danny. She thought their relationship was alright; not perfect, but not so bad. Until she asks him to accompany her to a Friday night fashion show at Enchanted Bridal. He adamantly refuses, in the most insulting fashion; Becca is crushed. But worst of all, this happened in the shop’s parking lot, and it was witnessed by a very nice guy, Max. Hailey has been pining over Logan, one of the male models for a year. She hasn’t tried to ask him out, and when she does, he’s not what she expected. Meanwhile, another model keeps talking to Hailey: Jackson, who is not Hailey’s type at all. Everybody likes him, except Hailey, and nobody understands why. Ella has had one real boyfriend all her life, Dylan. They’re engaged to be married, but their parents are planning a huge wedding, and it’s driving Ella crazy. She’s even reconsidering if she should get married at all; she hasn’t experienced anything her friends have, she feels she might have missed out on life. Angie was unceremoniously dumped a while back, what will she do when the man who disappear comes back and tries to justify what he did? I love how Ms. Chase intertwined the stories of the four friends, and while they are different from each other, they never feel like stereotypes; every one of them does unpredictable things, but not so much that it feels out of character; rather it’s precisely what real people do. I thought I was going to cry when Danny was mean to Becca, because it felt all too real. Danny is a beast, and unfortunately too many of us have met his type. Becca has body issues that most of us can relate to, and I felt her pain and humiliation. And Ella’s uncertainty became my own, when wondering if she was making a mistake. It’s rare that an author can make me feel so close to fictional characters; it was like they were my friends too; I cared. I like that that the friends faced ordinary challenges, and while things are not going so well for most of them for a while, FRIDAY NIGHT BRIDES is not filled with distressing angst. Our friends face issues, but the book remains very pleasant, most likely because of the fabulous writing and the perfect mix of light and dark. The dialogues sound honest and real, exactly like the type of conversations one has with one’s best friends: sometimes snarky, teasing, fun, and loving and caring as well; mothers-daughters interactions felt just as genuine. I’m not sure if there was one character I liked more than the other, but Ella’s situation was the one that captivated my interest the most. Her issue is one that we seldom see in romance novels, and I had no idea which way it would go. I kept wondering if she merely had a case of cold feet, or if things would never be the same again, and the way Samantha Chase handled the whole situation was masterful. FRIDAY NIGHT BRIDES is a book that will make you laugh out loud, that will make you cry, that will make you evaluate your own values: are we snobs, like one character learns. Samantha Chase again demonstrates what a fine storyteller she is! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Loved it

    I really loved this book. It's a story that chronicles the journey of four young women as they venture through the dating world and ultimately each find their own HEA. These four have been friends forever and confide in each other in only a way best friends can. Angie, Ella, Becca and Hailey are completely different from each other yet they each bring a balance to the friendship they share. As the dynamics of the group begin to change they each have to learn to accept it in their own way. And while change is always inevitable it doesn't always have to be a bad thing. This is truly a wonderful read and a book I recommend to everyone.

    Sweet Funny and AMAZING!!!

    This was an awesome read and I loved how Samantha Chase featured four different characters, there was no main characters which only made me love all four women for different reasons. Hailey Angie Becca and Ella have been friends since they were little girls and have modelled every Friday night for Hailey's mom's Bridal Boutique - Enchanted Bridal it is their tradition. All four women go through their own issues and I loved how they were always there for each other no matter what is going on. I won't go into detail because I don't want to ruin it but I loved this book and it is 100% worth a read. These women have a strong unbreakable bond and are all sweet funny sexy sassy and strong, they are not to be messed with, I loved how Samantha Chase wrote this amazing read - my favourite line is "But it was all about no strings and worries and all that happy horseshit" Hailey said. "And now look where we are". I would recommend reading this with a nice glass of wine (or cup of tea) in a comfy chair because you will definitely want to be comfy xx

    Wonderful Story of Friendship

    A wonderful read by Samantha Chase, that I could not put down. Four girls that have been best friends since the age of five. Now in their late twenties, their a friendship is still going strong, through thick and thin and laughter and tears they are there for each other. Their personalities are all different but they all mesh together. They will support each other through love lives, a long with their Friday night ritual of modeling wedding dresses and Saturday lunches. By the end of the book, you too will be wishing Angie, Hailey, Becca and Ella were your best friends too. Brought back many memories for me of my high school and young adult life. Thank you Samantha Chase for writing a wonderful book!!

    Best Friendship Book Ever!!!

    Friday Night Brides by Samantha Chase is the best friendship book I have ever read, if I could give 10 stars I would. Samantha takes us on a journey of these four best friends lives. I love these four Hailey the snob, Angie the outgoing one, Becca low self esteem, and Ella the homemaker, so different but they love each other like sisters. They have been friends and modeling since they were five years old and they go through it all, heartache, love, Romance, friendship disagreements and boy trouble. This story had me laughing out loud, tears, happy and sad. This is a must read for any romance reader, do not pass this one up. I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
