Marietta does have a thing about brides...and weddings. This is Mel and Luke's story. Two best friends. Now you tonight know Mel, she is that amazing cake decorator from several Montana Born books. In fact after this book I was craving drake or at the least creaming butter cream icing. So we get to know more about Luke & Mel right off the bat when Luke runs into sexed up Mel at Grey"s and carries her out. Oh yeah friends? Do friends get jealous when other guys hit on their best friends? This is a well written read that lets us catch up with some of our favorite characters from Marietta as well as get cozy with this couple. I would like to say that author Maisey Yates touched on a topic in this book near and dear to me. One I struggle with daily myself as well as both my girls. She showed it with accuracy and compassion. Thanks.

I was so sorry for this book to end! Finally His Bride was just about perfect; engaging, humorous, sexy, sweet. Maisey Yates writes well; she can really draw the reader in. I loved the dialogue and interaction between Melanie and Luke - being best friends for so long, they had such an ease with each other yet the transition to lovers was seamless and natural. I'll definitely be looking for more from this author.

A quick sexy fun read of friends to lovers. Melanie and Luke have been friends since childhood. Melanie wants to loose the big V, Luke does not want to help with her until he sees her all dressed up at Grey's picking up a stranger. Luke steps in as the protector. Melanie has always had feelings for Luke, but has been timid due to her abusive upbringing. Luke is also hiding a secret of dyslexia. I really enjoyed watching this couple grow together and overcome their obstacles. This is book four of Montana Born Brides, but can be read as a stand alone. I received this book from netgalley for an honest review.

A sweet friends to lovers story. Luke Shuller has had a bad week, his sister is pregnant by his former best friend, whom he believes stole from their company. Instead of enjoying his drink, he finds his childhood Best Friend dressed to kill with some drunk cowboy hanging all over her. Having spent his life protecting Melanie, he intervenes and ends up carrying her out when she doesn't leave when he asks. Melanie Richardson is tired of waiting for Luke to see her as a woman, not a victim. In an effort to break out of her safe zone and move forward to a future with a family of her own, she decides to start with a stranger. What she didn't expect was for Luke to show up and interfere. When he offers to help her lose her virginity, she takes him up on it. Surely, two close friends can keep sex and friendship separate, can't they? A very sweet, sexy friends to lovers story with two strong but flawed characters. Both have their insecurities that they have to work through to be open to a relationship together. The story is part of the Montana Brides series, and directly connected to Bride by Mistake (Luke's sister, Kaitlin) but can be read as a stand alone. A short, enjoyable novella with two fun characters that returns the reader to Marietta, MT. *I received an Advanced Reader Copy via NetGalley for an honest review.

ARC kindly provided by the publisher, via Netgalley, in exchange for a honest review. I always enjoy reading friends to lovers stories, and this one totally hit the mark, it was a charming little romance story brimming with passion, desire, playful banter and plenty of blush worthy moments! The story line captivated my attention right away and had me flipping the pages just as quick as I could read through them. The chemistry between Luke and Melanie was off the charts, and I really appreciated the fact that the author created such a strong female character in Melanie, to go toe to toe against Luke's alpha male personality, I think it definitely made the story line more exciting. This was my first encounter with this authors work and I can tell you with complete certainty that it won't be my last! I highly recommend you make time to read this book, it will definitely satisfy all your reading needs... and then some!

A sweet and sexy friends to lovers story. How far would you go to help a best friend? Luke Shuller will do anything for his best friend Melanie Richards. When Luke saw Melanie at Grey’s Saloon one night with a cowboy making moves on her, he had to put a stop to it. There was no way he was letting some random guy at a bar take advantage of Mel. He knew she was a good girl and wouldn’t sit there to watch it happen. When Melanie confesses she was ready to lose her virginity, Luke decides he would be the best man for the job. They have known each other for a long time. Friends with benefits can be a bit tricky. How will Luke react when Melanie tells him that she is in love with him? This was a really sweet story. I just wish it was just a bit longer.

What a fantastic return to Marietta!  Yates has created a romance that will spark your interest while sparking some definite heat between the characters.  The premise behind the story was both tear jerking and absolutely comical.   Yates has created an unforgettable cast of characters that I loved getting to know.  Luke & Melanie were a fantastic couple to get to know.   They were fantastic individually, but together they were off the charts.  Their combined & separate histories crashes in to their present adventures in such a manner that you get a full picture of who they are.  This is one of those stories that I really and truly enjoyed, but would have absolutely loved if it had been a full length novel, giving the characters a bit more time to develop. Yates has created a story that’s both sweet & sassy.  She held my attention throughout and I can’t wait to read more by this fantastic author.  I also wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to others. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

This fourth entry in the Montana Born Brides series is the story of Luke (previously introduced in book 3, Bride by Mistake, as the heroine's brother) and Melanie. They've been best friends for years, but Luke can't help her with the one thing she wants to do - get rid of her virginity. Only Luke finds himself unwilling to let a stranger be the man for Melanie and steps in. Now that they've crossed that line, can they go back to being friends or even better, can they acknowledge their true feelings for each other and commit to a future together? I really enjoyed these two characters and I thought they made a great couple. Luke is a pretty solid, dependable, stable guy, though he has his problems, including struggling with dyslexia and negative feelings of self-worth. He is devastated when he believes that his friend Beckett betrayed him. Melanie is the one light in his life, the one he can count on to always be there for him, just like he's always going to be there for her. But he sees her now differently- no longer as the shy child he first met, or sweet teenage friend, but now very much an attractive woman. Finding himself looking at her in a new way and discovering she has feelings for him scares him to pieces. But now that's he's found that chemistry with Melanie he is unable to back away. Melanie too was an engaging character, friendly and likeable. She's finally willing to take a chance on men after experiencing a physically abusive childhood and though she doesn't appreciate Luke's highhanded ways, she's not going to turn down this chance to be intimate with him. Their love scenes are steamy and emotional. I liked how Melanie challenged Luke to really see her and give their relationship a chance at a future. It was a lovely, sexy read. 4 stars.
