I'm loving this series by Marquita Valentine! This story is a perfect combination of a romance and a holiday story. Logan is home for the holidays and has planned on asking his girlfriend to marry him, but instead he finds her in bed with one of his best friends. He decides to turn this all around with a short trip to Vegas hoping it will help lift his mood. Willow has been in love with Logan for years, but gave up hope when he left town so finding him in Vegas seems to feel like a push to make changes to their relationship, but a spur of the moment marriage wasn't in the plans even if it always was what she's wanted. I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.
I really enjoyed The Christmas Bride by Marquita Valentine which is the fourth book of her Brides of Holland Springs series. This is Willow and Logan’s story. Willow Vaugh who has loved Logan, from a distance, since her senior prom, gets a second chance with Logan while in Las Vegas on a getaway. Logan Ambrose finally realizes what everyone has been trying to tell him, that his girlfriend, Corrine, was constantly cheating on him. After finding her in bed with his best friend, Logan takes off for some down time in Las Vegas. It there he discovers Willow, once again, and decides he needs to take care of her. After getting married while drunk and a night of celebrating their marriage, the two return to Holland Springs. Willow and Logan need to learn to be honest and share the love they have for each other. This was a sweet, fun and entertaining story with very likeable and authentic characters that you want to cheer on, hoping for that happy ending. The characters were well written, having complex characteristics. The story line was riveting and kept my attention to the very end. I enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down. I highly recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
I have loved every book in this series (this is number 4) and I have to say, this one has to be my favorite!!!! I want to say Willow is my favorite character of all Marquita Valentine's heroine's, but I can't because I have loved each and every one (I think, kind of hard to remember when you've read over 30 of an author's books) just as hard. But I really do love Willow!!! Her sweetness, her loyalty, just so much about her to be crazy over. And Logan, I mean come on, he's a Navy SEAL and while he has every right to be completely full of himself, he still finds a way to be real!!!! Currently (until her next book) this is most definitely my favorite couple in Holland Springs!!!!
What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas? Not if you marry the man you have been in love with for years...Willow Vaughan has been in love with Logan Ambrose since the day she turned 18. He saw her, actually saw HER. Years later while taking a vacation in Las Vegas they run into each other. WOW! The sparks were immediate and after Willow telling Logan off he had to convince her to have dinner with him. Bucket list tasks were crossed off and the next morning they wake up together...married...by Elvis. This was an engaging story and out of all the Ambrose brothers I am now convinced Logan is the best. I highly recommend this book! **Received a copy of this ARC for an honest review**
