James Bravo's Shotgun Bride by Christine Rimmer


Tied to a chair and staring down the barrel of a shotgun isn't how James Bravo planned on proposing to the woman he's secretly longed for for months. He also isn't the father of Addie Kenwright's unborn baby—even if her grandfather thinks he is. James has never stolen so much as a kiss from the beautiful rancher…but all that changes when he and Addie say "I do."

Three times burned is enough to put a single woman off wedlock forever. Addie only agreed to this crazy scheme to appease her ailing grandpa. Now the mother-to-be can't get enough of the hunky, blue-eyed attorney. Are Addie and James ready to take the plunge for real and turn a temporary arrangement into the marriage of both their dreams?

Hey everyone, I have to be honest (that is just me) and let you know that this book was dedicated to me. I have been reading Christines books for years so it was pretty cool having a dedication. I have read the majority of all the Bravo books and love this series. Now, how did I like this one??? I think it is one of her best by far (and not because of the dedication). I loved the characters. It is full of surprises, lots of love and heart, lots of fun and a fast read. Paw Paw is an absolute riot. Go get the book and read it to find out who Paw Paw is and what he does.

Title: James Bravo's Shotgun Bride - The Bravo's of Justice Creek 4 Author: Christine Rimmer Published: 4-19-2016 Publisher: Harlequin Pages: 224 Genre: Romance Sub Genre: Series ISBN: 978037366962 ASIN: B01W85G2G Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley My Rating: 5 Stars . Christine Rimmer is a talented writer I have followed since I read her Silhouette Book Practically Married back in 1998. James Bravos' Shotgun Wedding is one her best with the humor and touching scenes. The premise is that James Bravo has had his eyes on Addie Kenwright, Being led by shotgun by her grandfather to the wedding is not how he ever imagined proposing. As far as Addie's grandfather is concerned, Addie is expecting and it looks like James is pegged as the father. Addie agree to marry for different reasons. James because he has come to care for Addie and Addie to ease her dying grandfather's stress and give him a reason to live. As time passes will James be able to convince Addie to take their temporary arrangement and make it a lifetime commitment filled with love on both sides? The laughter arrives with the very beginning and continues along the way. Addie's is stubborn and determined to guard her heart from being broken again. She will have her baby to love and doesn't require a man to complete her world. James uses patience and romance to bring her around to his way of thinking. I loved Paw Paw, he was so sweet. A fast paced adorable story. I loved it from beginning to end. My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.

James Bravo’s Shotgun Bride is the first and only book I’ve read from The Bravos of Justice Creek series. I wasn’t too familiar with James Bravo or any of the Bravo history, so at times I was a bit caught off with the introductions of the other family members. The focus of this story is James, who’s forced into a shotgun wedding with Addie Kenwritght by her stubborn Paw Paw. Despite the baby not being his, James enters into the marriage with an open mind. He’s had a big crush on Addie, yet she’s hesitant about taking another shot at love because of being spurned in the past. Will marriage bring the two together? Or will Addie’s past spell a short-lived relationship? This was a nice, humorous romance story. Paw Paw was my favorite character. His stubbornness provided lots of laughs throughout the book, yet he also had a nurturing side when it came to his granddaughters. James and Addie, I liked their characters, yet I felt like I didn’t have much time to connect with them. I felt that maybe there should’ve been a few extra chapters to help develop their relationship. Aside from that, it was a good story. It’s a very quick read, but a good one for any romance readers looking for a sweet, funny romance.

James Bravo’s Shotgun Wedding is the fourth book in Christine Rimmer’s The Bravos of Justice Creek. I’ve read all of the books in the series and I think this is my favorite so far. I immediately fell in love with James. Who couldn’t after he was held at gunpoint and forced to marry his friend, Addie Anne. James is the ideal man—kind, caring and just all around a good man. I liked Addie, as well, although, I wished she would have realized sooner that James was the man that he was. Add in the antics of Levi, Addie’s grandfather, along with Lola, his nurse and this story had it all. I enjoyed seeing many of the characters from past Bravo books. I’ve never read a book by Ms. Rimmer that disappoints me. You can’t go wrong in reading this book or any of the books in the Bravos of Justice Creek series. I’d like to disclose that I received a copy of James Bravo’s Shotgun wedding in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Addie is a wonderful, generous, lady who will do anything to help a sick friend but is harboring an intense attraction to her handsome neighbor.

Who doesn't love a story that starts off with an avenging grandpa (Paw-Paw) and a groom who is not nearly as opposed to marrying his next door neighbor’s granddaughter as Paw-Paw thinks. Paw-Paw is a matchmaker at heart and is not opposed to a little; well a lot of manipulation to see his granddaughter married to the man of her dreams. Even when said granddaughter doesn't know he is the man of her dream yet. This book made me laugh and shake my head at how sometimes couples who are meant to be together just can't seem to get there on their own. This is a must read for anyone who loves romance and matchmaking grandpa's.

Another page turner from Christine Rimmer. It opens up with Paw Paw holding a shotgun on James. Addie comes in and is shocked. She confesses that James is not the father and it only angers Paw Paw. He wants James to do the right thing and marry Addie. He then has a heart attack and is taken to the hospital. In the mean time James and Addie are fighting their feelings more Addie because of her fears. Interesting likeable characters. Do they get together and stay together? Read the book to find out you won't be sorry.

In James Bravo's Shotgun Bride Christine Rimmer tells the story of Addie Kenwright who is pregnant. Her grandfather has made up his mind that James Bravo is the father, no matter what the truth. This story has so many elements, manipulation, humor, respect, friendship and love. As always once, I started, I was unable to put the book down. I read this book on a flight, it was so good, I was able to forget I was even on a plane. Rimmer never disappoints!!

Terrific romance with an unusual start. The book opens with James face-to-face with Addie's grandfather, who is holding a shotgun pointed at him. Levi is convinced that James is the father of Addie's baby and determined that James will do the right thing. James is confused because he's never even had the chance to kiss her, much less sleep with her, though he definitely wants to get to know her better. Things get even more interesting when Addie arrives home and sees what her grandfather is up to, and he has a heart attack while she's yelling at him. Let me start out by saying that I loved Levi. He was quite the interesting character. He's very old-fashioned and when he discovers that Addie is pregnant, he zeroes in on the man that he sees making eyes at her. He is stubbornness personified and nothing Addie says will convince him otherwise. His use of his recovery to force the issue was quite a risk. Later on, I loved seeing him dealing with Lola, the live-in nurse, with an interesting twist at the end. He comes through for Addie with some well-timed advice. James has been yearning after Addie for months. He's built a house on land right next to hers, and they frequently talk when she's out riding. I loved his calmness in the face of chaos during the shotgun incident and heart attack. It was his chance to be there for Addie when she needs him. I loved his attempt to convince Levi, and how he ended up telling Addie he's willing to go through with the wedding to help her out. Addie complains about Levi's stubbornness, but she is right up there with him. I had to laugh at her frustration as she tried to convince him of the truth about her baby. She's had three serious boyfriends and each time she's ended up left behind. She no longer trusts herself to pick out a man who won't leave her brokenhearted. She's attracted to James, but wary of opening her heart again. She agrees to the marriage, but only a temporary one until her grandfather is better. I loved the development of their relationship. The chemistry between them is strong, and they dive right into that, while still trying to protect their hearts. Over the next couple months they settle in to what seems like a terrific marriage. James is quick to realize that he wants to continue the marriage. I loved seeing him try to let Addie know how he feels. Addie also realizes that she loves him, but she her fears cause her to push him away. James shows amazing understanding and patience while he waits for her decision. Once she accepts her feelings and sees that she's the one running away, she can finally open her heart to James's love. I loved her way of showing him that she was ready to face the future with him, it was so adorable. I look forward to seeing their progress in future books. *copy received in exchange for an honest review.
