Brooklyn used to trust everyone. That was until she was left at the altar and had to fend for herself. The list was long. Finding a new place to live was top priority. But things could be worse as she mends her broken heart. Not every jilted bride gets a hottie next-door neighbor who is more than willing to lend her a hand–in forgetting her ex that is. But what does she REALLY know about the latest man in her life and can she REALLY trust him?
Piper Rayne is back with another captivating laugh out loud romance, that literally had me grinning and swooning with every single chapter. Advice From A Jilted Bride picks up the story of the Bailey family with the middle child Brooklyn Bailey, who was on her way to saying ‘I do’ when who she thought was the love of her life ends things minutes before the procession. Heart broken and angry at the opposite sex, Brooklyn begins the journey of starting over when she meets her new neighbor, Wyatt, a smoldering business man with secrets that no one can know about.
I absolutely adore this series and this installment just furthers my belief that the writing duo are one of the Goddesses on Romance Olympus. Simple as that. From the very beginning of the novel, we are instantly pulled into the aftermath of Brooklyn not so quite wedding and her absorbing the news that she wont be a wife after all. Kind with a flair for the art of sass, I connected with Brooklyn on so many levels to the point where I wanted to protect her at all costs. Brooklyn never wavered in what she wanted and stood her ground for her beliefs and the love she has for the people who live in Lake Starlight.
Just like in the first novel, I love the bond and the firm relationship she has with her family as I got to see how each of them played their role in her life and how solid they were to support and protect her no matter what her decision or actions were. Trust was a huge theme throughout this novel and I felt like the Bailey family is a great depiction of what a healthy solid family looks like when each of them trusts the other.
From the get-go, the chemistry between Wyatt and Brooklyn was off the chart and I was shipping the crap out of them from the moment he set foot into her apartment to check on her. Cool, crisp, educated, and sarcastic Wyatt is someone that you have to try really hard not to fall in love with. I loved the back story we were given of Wyatt as he makes his new temporary home in Lake Starlight and watching his character develop and new layers begin to unfold with each scene and chapter was truly enchanting.
Advice From A Jilted Bride is a captivating, laugh-out-loud romance that tells the story of finding yourself and second loves. I highly recommend this novel to anyone who loves a good romance comedy with a flair for the steamy side.
