She's sworn off weddings…

After two failed relationships and six stints as a bridesmaid, Stephanie Ludlow is convinced she’s man-poison. So when her hormones point due south to her sexy—but not so charming—new landlord, she can't help the sparks that fly. It’s a good thing she’s declared a strict "no sex" policy, because Mike Brubaker might as well have “it’s not happening” tattooed across his delectable chest.

He's sworn off love…

Spurned single dad Mike has learned the hard way women are the source of all evil and should be avoided at any cost. And that definitely includes his gorgeous new tenant. But when they're thrown together in the wedding party from hell, both will stop at nothing to fight the heat building between them. Giving in is not an option for either of them.

May the best man—or woman—win.

    Oh la la la… I wanted to be be Stephanie in this story! M

    Oh la la la… I wanted to be be Stephanie in this story! Mike is dead sexy and a great father. So while Stephanie and Mike debated whether or not it was a good time for them to be in a relationship I wanted to barge in and b-slap Stephanie (no offense really, just needed the distraction) and drag Mike out by his man parts to my car for a little one on one time. Great story, perfect writing, lovable characters, and one grade A quality beef what’s not to like?
    Overall this was a great read, go buy it immediately. Then come back and tell us who your “Mike” is. We really want to know, comment on Passionate Book Divas dot com. I also have an Interview from the author there!

    I always like a quick romance book that makes me feel like I was

    I always like a quick romance book that makes me feel like I was not the only one that was completely inept when it came to a romantic relationship. With Always a Bridesmaid it was Stephanie's emotional scars from her parents divorce and her own bad luck that had me connecting with her immediately.

    Stephanie is gun shy about relationships, seeming to make the wrong choices in men and always falling hard for them and then falling apart when the relationships ended. So when she meets her new landlord, Mike Brubaker, she knew she was in trouble.

    Mike, a recently divorced father, has been turned sour on relationships. He questions his ability to find the right person to spend his life with and decides focusing on his relationship with his nine year old son is for the best. But when he meets his new housemate, he discovers that his best laid plans have been smashed to bits by a woman.

    As a reader, I connected with Stephanie immediately. She's been hurt in the few relationships she's had and by her mother who abandoned her for the shiny lights of Vegas. She searching for that one person who can love her for who she is, stubborn, independence streak and all. In Mike, she sees a kindred spirit, but also someone who could utterly crush her if she lets him get to close.

    Mike can't explain why he's as attracted to Stephanie as he is, but he keeps reminding himself that he needs to focus on his son. But he makes excuses to reach out to Stephanie, to talk to her and finds that when he's not with her, he misses her. He needs her, but he also has to figure out how he can have both Stephanie and his son in his life.

    This was a very sweet read. It went by fast, but it was the perfect way to spend an hour...losing yourself in the story of two people learning how to compromise to make a relationship work.

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book
    Stephanie’s tired of being a taffeta-wearing bridesmaid and Mike is burnt out on relationships thanks to his possibly-cheated-on-him ex-wife. Unfortunately for Stephanie, she’s about to be a bridesmaid again in her best friend’s quickie wedding, but at least she doesn’t have to wear the dreaded taffeta. Mike’s still surly when it comes to marriage, but has agreed to be Justin’s best man.

    This had so much potential to be a great little romance, but instead it falls short and ends up only being cute. I felt that there were times that it was confused as to whether it wanted to be a contemporary romance or fall into erotica territory, changing its mind at the last moment. Also, there were a lot of times where the dialogue felt forced and uneasy.

    Also, there was the nearly impossible timing of this book – they meet, then fall in lust, then love all in a week to two week’s time period. It just wasn’t overly believable to me. This wasn’t a bad book by any means, I just feel that there was room for character development to take place over a longer time period instead of the fast pace that it took.

    To me, this was a formula book,and the characters were no all that likable. The kid was a spoiled brat who had his father by the balls, and Stephanie was boring. I guess you can safely say I didn't like the book; and I hate giving bad reviews!

    Review: "Always a Bridesmaid" by Cindi Myers was n




    Review:

    "Always a Bridesmaid" by Cindi Myers was nice well written good romance novel and I did thoroughly enjoyed the read.


    Stephanie was a graduate student working for her father...she was a very determined independent and capable of not letting anyone or anything get in the way of her goals. Stephanie's mom had left her and her dad when she was only sixteen...Mike was head of his own construction firm....single parent with a son...nine year old Ryan.

    Due to Stephanie's friend Justin...she meets Mike(landlord)....and she ends up renting a room from Mike. Justin was a friend of Mike and Stephanie and he was getting married ...Mike was the best man and Stephanie ended up also being in the wedding... as a bridesmaid. After a impromptu kiss...it was decided (Mike and Stephanie) would keep their distance...not wanting to get 'involved.' "They wouldn't fool around as long as they lived under the same roof." Now... Mike had been referred to as grim...has a son, ex-wife (with boyfriend.... and for Stephanie...there was her dad, his girlfriend and then their were the housemates.

    Stephanie was looking for love and was afraid to move forward for fear of being hurt again...just like her father. For Mike who was a recently divorced dad and had turned sour when it came to any relationships due to the way he had been treated in his last marriage. Will Stephanie and Mike start a relationship and if so will this be kept a secret? Now, this is the time that I say you must pick up "Always a Bridesmaid" to find out if there will be a relationship between these two.

    The characters were all interesting and even very believable referring to Stephanie, Mike, Justin, Ilisa, Judy, Kay,Ryan, Jack, Kaye, Grace, Todd, Madeline, Paul, Sandy, and Nicole.

    "Always a Bridesmaid" was a quick read and if you are in for a sweet good read then I would recommend this one for you.

    Ugh

    ## God, I hate it when I waste my time. This book was terrible. The hero was so wishy-washy, "i want you", "i don't want you", over and over. And I hate when the EX is given more time in the book than the heroine. 300 pages of 'Kaye this Kaye that'. Don't bother!
