    Doesn't end

    This cannot be given a good review because there is no ending. It cuts off in the middle of the story. Many of the chapters start at a point that doesn't naturally flow from the previous.

    Where's the end of the book?

    I was enjoying this free ebook (I'm not in to Romance novels but this was cute) until I got to what seemed to be the end and it just cuts off. I can deal with the odd characters in place of proper puncuation, but it's not really fair to offer a free book and cut off the end.

    it was okay

    happen to be free, so i downloaded it. i feel like for the climax of the book, it didnt have a good ending. sort of abrupt. i dislike when you your into a book and you cant stop reading it b/c you wanna know how everything is going to end and it just ends all of a sudden.

    Great Romance

    I'm not usually a reader of these short romances, but this one really caught me. The characters were interesting and had real depth. The plot kept me turning the pages and wishing I had more reading time to find out the next twist in the story.

    Cute love story

    To anyone who reads an earlier review that mentions lesbions and adultury and gets scared, let me just say, I don't know what they were talking about. This is a cute, mildly hot, love story.

    This book was pretty good! I really like the romance and description in this book. It was kinda boring and slow at first but after the first few chapters i didn't wanna put it down!

    So slow...picked up about 2/3 of the way through!

    I had to make myself finish reading this book. It was so slow that I couldn't concentrate. The main characters are introduced early on and the he leaves for 6 months so half of the story revolves around her work and her event planning business. When he comes back very late in the story the ending picks up but be prepared for the slow parts! I wouldn't have chosen to read this book having finished it.

    Good Read

    This was a good book. I enjoyed reading it and really couldn't put my nook down. I have never read anything from Liz Fielding before but hope to find something else she wrote ANY SUGGESTIONS?

    A quick read

    Every once in a while I like to take a break from my more serious reads to enjoy a bit of fluff which means I usually turn to my stash of Harlequin romances, plus last year I was lucky enough to discover Liz Fielding and fell for the cute way she writes her romances.

    However this one just didn't appeal to me in the same way her other book that I read by her did. This one's characters Sylvia and Tom didn't seem to really connect to each other in a way that worked for me. I know some may think that this is because this is one of the Harlequin UK titles that target for a different audience but I tend to like these ones a lot.

    I guess my main issue was Tom, who had little to no redeemable qualities for me even when the book was ending all I saw was the same brutish man that has issues with his past. I really found the way he treated Sylvia as mildly verbally abusive and I swear if he ever talked to me in the manner he continuously talked to everyone in the book well, lets just say he'd learn that that kind of thing just doesn't fly with me. I guess another reason I didn't like Tom at all was because I've known men like him and I can't stand them so yeah I'm probably just taking issues with a fictional character out of proportion but I didn't like him. However, let me say that I did TRY to like him. Obviously this was unsuccessful. So how Sylvia let him in her knickers and her heart just astounds me.

    I did like Sylvia though I found her attraction to Tom distasteful I thought she was sweet and likable. While she started off with a bit of a backbone when it came to Tom in the beginning it was as though once she let him in her knickers all her sensibilities and intelligence went out the window. Thankfully though she was able to get it back.

    So basically there were things about The Bride's Baby that I didn't like, there were still somethings that really appealed to me and that was the overall style of the writing. Even though this one wasn't as enjoyable for me as her other book I read was I think Liz Fielding is a wonderful author and I'll read anything she writes. This book just wasn't too my tastes as much.

    I recommend this book and all of Liz's other books to lovers of contemporary romance especially if you love Harlequin titles. I think they're great summer reads perfect to spend reading in the garden, at the beach or the pool. They're equally good for reading on a cold winter night as well.

    Yuck

    This was no good. They had no relationship at all. Nothing to even build on. He was a jerk more than once to her, and how could she stand being around someone who doesn't even acknowledge their child. Still, she says nothing. It was ridiculous, no pregnant women in her right mind would not say anything. Then poof they're together. No ending to this story. Very bad. I won't be reading this author again.

    Typical Harlequin

    When I read this it was exactly like I was expecting. Baby before marriage. Man and woman having a hard time admitting they like each other. Because it is so predictable I gave it 3 stars.

    Such Potential, But In the End, A Let Down

    Bride's Baby, by Liz Fielding, had such potential in its plot, but fell so short in the end due to a slow start, too short of a period for relationship development, poor editing and an abrupt ending. The concept was great, but I found myself re-writing the book in my head. Adding parts where the author didn't provide a segue. The book was choppy, and in several parts, I had to re-read the text just to be sure I hadn't missed something or read it incorrectly. The editing was atrocious. A simple read through or software spell checker would have caught most of the missing words or misspelled words.

    The part at Longborne where the two main characters spend time together was nice - especially the scene sitting by the fire in the library - but it needs to be longer and more fleshed out if the characters are going to exchange credible "I love You"s in the end.

    The discussion of the Steamtrain wedding theme was either too brief or too vague to get a visual. If you are going to go into detail about those kinds of things, make sure it is enough to give the reader a solid idea of what it looks like. Otherwise, it is superfluous material that only confuses the reader and takes up space in the book.

    Overall, it could have been a great book, but I'm glad it was free.

    Bad

    I honestly couldnt get in to this book at all. Everytime i almost got into the book it changed and was back to being boring again and the ending just cuts off. Plus i like longer books. Alot of people are saying its good book for free but ive read way better. If u want a good free book thats intresting try the mating or bonded the serries is free and has 4 amazing books in it

    Where is the ending?

    Where is the rending? It was an okay book, but the so called ending made it a waste of my time.

    Cheesy Romantic

    It was good don't get me wrong, but also very cheesy as well. Its got a touch of romance, mixed with jealousy and want.

    Held true to Harlequin. The story line was interesting and
    You just wanted to know how it ended, although the ending was carried out rather suddenly. I expected a little more detail, but still a good read.
