    Typical RomCom, Could Easily Do W/O Sex Scene @ End

    Quick and easy read. This is your stereotypical RomCom and could easily be a movie with Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant, except for the honeymoon scene that gets unnecessarily graphic during the last few pages of the book. Funny - pokes fun of romance novels and sleazy daytime talk shows - and shows growth of a relationship over a longer period of time, including resolution of past hurts. Of course, the situation in which the characters find themselves is not one that is common to many people, it is still believable to a certain extent. the resolution of the plot is too swift, though, and results in an ending that seems forced.

    All in all, a fun read if you are simply looking to be entertained.

    With This Ring, I Thee Dread by Ruth Ann Nordin
    Omaha Series Book 1
    Ryan Jackson was going to be Vice President in his dad's advertising firm. He enjoyed his work and felt he was good at it. His friends from school worked their as well, Zack and Ben. He knew his life was changing from theirs, he was growing up and they were still acting like children. Whenever Ryan had to go somewhere with a date he'd have Zack set him up and then he'd end up with yet another empty headed bimbo who wanted to talk about herself. The girl he loved years ago, Carmen, was a model but she could carry on a conversation. His parents would like to see him take Elizabeth Valentine out since they were best friends with her parents but there was no way. They had been enemies since she moved to Omaha her freshman year.

    Elizabeth Valentine finished college and was now working for her dad's design company. She was the occupational psychologist. She had to give a talk on sexual harassment at the Jackson's company and couldn't believe her childhood nemesis's, Zack and Ben, were no different. Still immature and Ryan was no different either. After her break-up with Preston, who left her for someone else, she had turned serious and dated very little. It was all work and no play.

    Their parents decided that Ryan and Beth, who are both only children, would marry each other so they could have grandchildren to hand down the company's to, they refused. When they were given the choice of marrying or losing their jobs and any money from their parents they accepted. The loop hole was after staying 4 months together in the Valentine's isolated Alaskan cabin , they could get an annulment if they did not fall in love. The way things looked at the cabin they wouldn't need an annulment because they'd kill each other first.
    **Sexual situations within marriage.

    Loved it!!!

    Ryan and Beth's love story was different. I thought that it was slow going but nice. I dont want to say much just that I really liked them. Read it yourself and enjoy.
