Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this family melodrama, successful businessman Cameron Shaw has a fling with a gold digger who resembles his late wife. Just as Cameron is about to break it off, Shelly fakes a pregnancy. All of his friends (the couples from the previous two books in the series) and his five-year-old daughter, Emma, warn him that the woman is out for his money, but he refuses to listen. Of course, then Cameron meets and falls in love with Martina, the perfect woman, but he feels obligated to honor his promise to marry Shelly. Not so obligated, it seems, as he also enjoys a one-night stand with perfect Marti and starts a real baby. Emma is the smartest person in the family, figuring it all out long before the adults do!

Verdict The Right Bride may be a disappointment to followers of the series (Saved by the Rancher; Lucky Like Us). The suspense of the first two books is lacking, while the adults need to be hit with a “clue-by-four.” For readers who like family soap operas, this is a three-hankie special.—Marlene Harris, Seattle P.L.

Meet the Author

Jennifer Ryan is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Hunted series and the McBride series. She writes romantic suspense and contemporary small-town romances featuring strong men and equally resilient women. Her stories are filled with love, friendship, and the happily-ever-after we all hope to find. Jennifer lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, three children, dog (Bella), and cat (Shadow). When she isn't writing a book, she's reading one. Her obsession with both is often revealed in the state of her home and in how late dinner is to the table. When she finally leaves those fictional worlds, you'll find her in the garden, playing in the dirt and daydreaming about people who live only in her head, until she puts them on paper.

    I loved the first two books in this series. I was really looking forward to this one. I still have 60 pages left to go and want to beat Cameron to death for terminal stupidity. I'm hoping the last 60 pages will redeem this, but my hopes aren't high at this point. I do not understand how a man is described to be so brilliant and such a good business man and a good judge of character can turn into a blithering idiot in this book. That said, the book does keep your interest. If it does redeem itself, I will return with a better review. I am not fond of lead characters that are flat out stupid, and Cameron truly has been beyond stupid for over 80 per cent of the book. I have to vote with the others for the awesome man on the cover, though!

    Yum.

    I haven't read the book, but I can't stop looking at the guy on the cover! Yep, I'm a 50 year old mom, long past being a teenager, but I'd happily hang a poster of that guy on my wall. Yowza.

    Forget about this one!

    I almost hate to give this book even one star. I enjoyed the first two books in the series, but this one was disappointing. Cameron was so amazingly obtuse that it got boring. The part of the storyline that had the most merit to me was George's. I like Jenifer Ryan, but this one just isn't up to her usual standard. I hope Tyler and Morgan's story is better!

    Love this series!

    I love this author! Write faster! My only complaint with this book is that she made Cameron too much of a jerk. After the hospital scene, I was ready for Marti to tell him to kiss off, and go find a guy like Sam and Jack!

    After reading the first & second book of the series, book three is a bit disappointing.   Book three lacks the writing skills that Ryan appears to have in the first two.  Maybe the problem is in the editting.  What happened to proof-reading before publishing?

    disappointed

    The first two books in this series were great! This one on the other hand was not! You could skip this book entirely and wait for the next to come out. There was nothing suspenseful or romantic about it at all, so I'm not sure why it is part of the "Hunted Series". The main character, Cameron, is a complete idiot. Don't waste you time on this one.

    more from this reviewer

    *I was given a copy of this book on loan from Edelweiss in excha

    *I was given a copy of this book on loan from Edelweiss in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. I eventually purchased my own copy to keep. All opinions are my own.

    My Thoughts:
    Cameron, Cameron, Cameron....what are we going to do with you? Men can really be dense sometimes and Cameron succeeds at that better than any storybook hero I have seen in quite some time. If I was not enjoying the story in general, I am not sure I would have forged on. But I did enjoy the story in general and was glad that I read the book in the end.

    The Good: Meeting a character like Marti is really a joy. Having a single Dad in the story always makes me want to protect both him and his child(ren). Meeting Shelly, now there was a reason to be protective but Marti? She was exactly what Cameron needed...he was just too blind to see it, even with the bond she quickly formed with Emma. It was just precious. On the flip side, even as annoying as it was, Shelly played her role well of the woman you love to hate which is not always an easy character to create. I was so glad that we got to catch up a bit on Jack and Jenna...it is always fun to have great characters brought back but especially them!

    The Bad: Truthfully, the only 'bad' thing was I thought that Cam wore his blinders a little too long. He should have snapped out of it sooner as it began to make the story drag a bit. Why didn't he make Shelly 'prove' she was pregnant? And why was Marti, in this day and age, so dad gum blind as to just forgive and forget after repeatedly being hurt? However, that could totally be just personal preference. Besides, once he opened his eyes, he was able to make better decisions. ;)

    The Snuggly: Well, this is a toughie. When you have two potentially pregnant women, obviously there was some sex involved. I am not going to get into the exchange between Cam and Shelly the Witch. I will tell you that since it was one of those 'I fell in love with you as soon as I met you' things with Cam and Marti, their intimacy was everything you would hope it would be...right up until he broke her heart. Things have a way of working out however and in the end, you (and they) will be completely satisfied. ;) 18 + only please.

    As with the abuse in Saved by the Rancher, there were many parts of this story that were a bit hard to choke down and get past. Cam certainly had his demons to work through and get past as did Marti. Because of the protracted length of time he was stupid, there will likely be people who miss out on the wonderfulness that this ENTIRE story encompasses. Do not let yourself be one of them. This is yet another well-written and charming edition in The Hunted Series. Climb aboard this emotional roller-coaster and hold on tight...it will be a bumpy but exhilarating ride!

    4/5 Stars, 3 Flames

    Good looks with no brain

    I read the 2nd book in this series Lucky like us and liked it so much I wanted to continue the series. Lucky like us was great. The language not great but the storyline was good. This book had no real plot and I could not believe it was written by the same Author. How could Cameron be so gorgeous and the President of this big corporation and be so moronic? I mean the evidence was right in-front of him plain as day. His friends kept pointing out the truth to him and he either was too stubborn to admit it or he was just plain dumb. I will go with the dumb part. I wanted so much to put my hand in this book and choke him. I did not like how the author waited until the very last minute to bring him to his senses. I practically skipped some of the boring parts just to get to the end. The story was not that great and Marti must have been too much in love with him to leave. Hope the 3rd book is much better.

    Okay, First two were terrific though

    First two books were amazing (despite grammar and spelling issues). I guess the hunted in this one refers to the gold-digger and her willfully stubborn prey. Still, can't wait to find out about Morgan and Tyler, since the first two in the series were suspenseful page-turners.

    Worst of the series!!!!!!

    I love the other three books of the series. I saved this till last because I didn't think i would like the story line. I read it hopes that Hero was as good as the rest. I was very wrong. There is nothing that would redeem him. He was beyoud stupid and hurtful. The whole book up till last 5 pages he was horrible to the heroine. Even when he was being nice it was a form of torture.
    I strongly incrourage you to read the other books of the series...Saved by a Rancher, Lucky like us & Chasing Morgan. Skip this one. Not worth it if anything it takes away from the other books.
