Overview


Friends don’t let friends marry the wrong woman…

Chad Walker may be a take-no-chances man with a plan, but there’s no way Amelia Snyder is going to let her best bud marry Mean Girl #1—even if the wedding is solely so he can secure the controlling shares in his family’s company. But free-spirited Amelia’s at-the-altar groomnapping scheme takes a surprising turn when she ends up as the blushing bride instead.

Suddenly, with Amelia living in her handsome husband’s home—in his bedroom, no less—she starts to reconsider their strictly platonic arrangement. But Chad’s always been strictly anti-risk and definitely anti-love, and betting a lifetime of best friendship on the chance at forever might be the biggest gamble of all.

    "Stealing the Groom" by Sonya Weiss was a very comical

    "Stealing the Groom" by Sonya Weiss was a very comical story. Chad is getting ready to get married to Claire, when Amelia, his best friend, kidnapped him from his own wedding. Amelia wants to convince Chad that this wedding is a mistake. Amelia assumes that Claire is only after Chad's money, which isn't completely false but the situation is much more complicated than that. Chad has to be married for six months before his grandfather gives him his inheritance of the company shares. Chad had a business arrangement with Claire so that they could get married and collect on the business shares. 




    Amelia didn't know that this was going on at the time, but she still wanted a chance to convince her best friend that he should marry for love instead of money and company shares. Amelia doesn't want to see Chad miserable. When everything goes wrong after Amelia kidnaps Chad, she ends up in her own predicament that she has to try to find a way out.




    I think that the storyline in "Stealing the Groom" is quite cute. Weiss had me laughing for the majority of the time. It seemed like something would go wrong and then the problem was fixed and then something else would go wrong. I was pretty entertained. I do have to say like most "Bliss" books that "Stealing the Groom" was a light read. If readers want to read something before bed or maybe have a lovely beach read, this would definitely be the book. It is cute and funny. Has budding romance and a little bit of heartbreak. What is a good romance novel if there isn't some sort of heartbreak in there? I was able to follow along with the book and where the plot was going quite nicely. Weiss had my attention within the first chapter to where I didn't put this book down until I completed it. 




    Chad's character was hard to like at first. I could tell that he cared for Amelia but he seemed too much of a workaholic to be given much credit from me. I didn't like how he was always telling Amelia how foolish she was and how she doesn't think things through when all she wanted was to try to save her best friend from making a terrible mistake. I think Chad was focused more on the unimportant things in life rather than what truly mattered. There is a point to everything that happens in life and Chad was missing those points, in a way Chad was just trying to get by in life. 




    Amelia may not be the best planner in life but she has good intentions. She wants to see her best friend happy and doesn't want to see him make any big mistakes in life. I can't blame her, I would want to see my best friend make those kind of mistakes in their life. I wouldn't want to see anyone live a miserable life. Amelia goes into this mess with only her heart on her sleeve regarding her feelings for Chad as a friend. What Amelia soon discovers is she may like Chad more than just a friend, but does she want to take the risk and possibly ruin their friendship? Amelia was easy to love right away. She is that spunky, adventurous, careless female that seems to get everything she wants but on the other hand she really doesn't. Amelia is the type of girl that anyone would love to have as a best friend.




    In all I think Weiss did a great job with "Stealing the Groom." I recommend checking it out, I don't believe you will be disappointed.

    What do you do when your best friend is marrying the wrong person? You kidnap the groom of course! That's the beginning of this truly wonderful friends to lovers story. It was highly entertaining with great secondary characters and a nice pace. Recommended read!

    Stealing the Groom is a nice, easy-read, angst-free romance.

    Chad and Amelia are lifelong best friends and complete opposites; he the safe businessman with everything planned out, she the flighty, live-life-by-the-seat-of-your-pants type of girl. She can't watch her best friend marry for convenience so she kidnaps him on his wedding day and suddenly finds herself standing at the altar...

    Their journey flowed well however it pretty much panned out as I expected it to. It didn't hold any real surprises but they were a cute endearing couple, with great banter and whilst Chad didn't steal my breath away, he was a sweetie and both he and Amelia brought out the best and the worst in one another.

    Whilst I liked it, I have to confess it didn't wow me in the way many other Bliss books have in the past. Nevertheless, I look forward to reading the next books in the series (which have been set-up nicely) , if you're after an easy sweet read then it does the trick and I'd recommend.

    I received a copy of this as an ARC courtesy of Entangled Publishing for an honest & unbiased opinion

    I'd recommend this book to anyone looking for a light, fun romance as it fits the bill perfectly :-)))



    I really enjoyed this friends-to-lovers romance. It had my favorite elements: romance, humor and an awesome, happy-ever-after ending.




    The kidnapping of the groom at the very beginning of the story had me laughing out loud. It was truly an hilarious comedy of errors as it seemed to go from one unexpected blunder to another. If anything could go wrong, it seemed to when our heroine, Amelia, had her hand in it. She was so adorable! 
    On the other hand, Chad, our hero, was a straight arrow, inflexible to a fault, and the complete opposite of Amelia. I wanted to shake him and tell him to loosen up! Bottomline: I loved how both the characters evolved as I turned the pages and you will too. 




    I'd recommend this book to anyone looking for a light, fun romance as it fits the bill perfectly :-)))




    Very Good! 4 Stars!!!!!

    The blurb for STEALING THE GROOM sounded like a fun, lighthearte

    The blurb for STEALING THE GROOM sounded like a fun, lighthearted read and I was hoping it would be just what I was looking for. It was. It was a funny, wonderfully romantic friends to lovers adventure with some opposites attracting thrown in to spice things up. There was plenty of emotion and passion between Chad and Amelia, but no actual "love" scenes. Didn't matter. Actually, it's part of the humor and building tension as they struggle to keep their relationship at that friendship level that makes the story work so well. I love a steamy sex scene as much as most, but what really makes me fall in love with a book and it's characters is (1) believing the emotion behind their actions, (2) witty, playful banter and (3) a connection level that makes it clear the lovers are meant to be. Sonya Weiss gives us all of this artfully and with flawless style. I recommend you pick up a copy while it's still only $.99, because this is a 5 star read.

    Looking for that cute sweet story, Stealing the Groom by Sonya W

    Looking for that cute sweet story, Stealing the Groom by Sonya Weiss is that story. We have Chad Walker and Amelia Snyder who have been best friends forever. Amelia hears that Chad is going to marry the ultimate mean girl, so she decides to intervene. Basically, Amelia goes in to rescue the groom from the biggest mistake of his life. However, Chad isn't too happy with Amelia half-cocked idea. He's willing to go along with her plan, but along the way it gets messed up badly. 

    Chad has vowed he never wanted love in his life, because of his parents disastrous relationship. So, when his grandpa was trying to force him to find a wife, he decides to make an arrangement with the mean girl. Which causes Amelia to snowball into her crazy plan. Plus, it didn't help that they have meddlesome grandparents. 

    Anyway, an adorable read. We have two polar opposites needing to come together because two crazy grandparents. Both of them fighting love, but of course we know love conquers all. However, with a marriage of convenience story line, you wonder how and when they are going to fall? Will they fight to keep the love or try to wash it under the rug. So, if you are looking for a cute read that has a marriage of convenience theme, you might try Stealing the Groom.

    I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
    This book is how a marriage of convenience gets derailed by a "fly by the seat of her pants" best friend,
     Amelia, who promised Chad, the groom, at 8 yrs. old they would only marry for love.
    She can't stand the idea of Chad married to "the mean girl" Claire, and what ensues is a twisty tale of how
    these two wind up together.  Amelia is impetuous and Chad plans everything with lists.  
    His upbringing has him a non-believer in love, hence the intended marriage to Claire, as a business decision.  
    While Amelia is an adventurous person and a bit of a daredevil, I didn't find her to be a truly memorable female
    character.  I guess I also tend to like Alpha males, and Chad didn't strike me as that.  
    I would recommend this book as a fun, lighthearted read, and most certainly a bargain @ .99 p

    This is a enjoyable story that pairs Drake, a duke who wants the perfect society wife with Penelope a socially awkward botanist. Drake is arrogant lord who has grown up in a loving but chaotic family. Penelope loves plants and has kept up her fathers study of plants while avoiding society. They meet when Penelope's aunt asked Drakes mother to sponsor her for her season in London. They eventually become engaged and marry. Much of the tension in the second half is between Drake's request that Penelope give up science and her continued pursuit of her dream. This provided conflict but puzzled me because it contradicted the hero's growth into a lovable husband. That aside, it was a fun read and an entertaining story. I received an arc copy for an honest review.

    Clean and fun romance! A good read for a good afternoon. 
    The main plot of Stealing the Groom is not exactly unique, but somehow reading the old “best friend turned lovers” story in a different angle is still entertaining. If you’re one of those kinds of readers who don’t mind finding the same kind of plot in books, but with different characters and labyrinth of situations, then this book is for you!
    Whenever I feel so overwhelmed reading too dark and too heavy YA books, I relinquish my inner romance goddess and read light and clean romance! It definitely lifts my spirits up.
