Loved MARRIED BY MONDAY! This second book in Catherine Bybee's Weekday Brides series was even better than Wife by Wednesday.
I'll just jump in with, I loved Carter, the hero in MbM, who Eliza's best friend Samantha nicknamed "Hollywood" because of his devastating, sexy, all-american, surfer boy, good looks. He's also thoughtful, loyal, honorable, sexy, and adorable with his pouting unrequited love for Eliza. In other words, totally swoon-worthy. Even though Carter convinced Eliza to marry him for her protection and to salvage his career it's obvious from the start he's got it bad for her. But if selling her in a marriage of convenience is what it takes to get his woman it's what he'll do. He does want to keep her safe, but mostly he just wants her.
Eliza, the heroine in this story has been keeping a whopper of a secret from her friends. One night of introducing Blake's sheltered sister Gwen to the thrills of a Texas honky-tonk bar starts an avalanche of media frenzy that brings Eliza into the limelight. The resulting exposure forces her to either come clean or leave her family of friends behind to run from her past once again.
Although there was danger and intrigue throughout this story the personalities of Ms. Bybee's characters made it seem more like an adventure. The story never lost it's fun or it's romance. The dialogue was snappy, the characters are real and relatable, the plot flows smoothly and the storyline kept me drawn in. There were humorous moments, hold your breath moments, sad moments and some very sexy loving moments. All-in-all a very well-rounded and enjoyable read. I rate this story with 5 stars. Did I mention I loved it?
