Seven years ago, Matthew Logan ran out on his wedding to June Leigh.

Life is good for fledgling dress-designer April Leigh. She couldn't be happier that her sister has found a new love, and is excited about her very first commission, June's wedding dress.
On learning June has invited runaway groom Matthew Logan to the wedding, April has to intervene. Matthew's presence will ruin everything - her father hates him, and just the sight of him in the church might give her mother a heart attack.

Matthew Logan has no intention of going to June's wedding, but intriguing April's arrival on his doorstep sparks his interest and he can't resist getting to know her better. When a disaster forces them together neither can deny the passion that combusts into a red-hot affair.

Discovering the truth about the past shifts April's feelings from lust to love, but bitter experience has taught Matthew to guard his heart.

When it looks as though Matthew will lose her forever, will he fight or flee?

Runaway Groom by Sally Clements was a very cute and sweet romance. The idea of a April dating her sister June's runaway groom was definitely a little awkward, and I wasn't sure how much I would enjoy this type of story. But I really got quite a bit of enjoyment out of this book. April and Matthew definitely had their differences but getting to see them as the reader develop such a close bond was beautiful and touching. The only problem I had with this book was that June's runaway groom's name was Matthew and her new Fiancé's name was Michael. For me, these names were too similar, and I kept getting these two men mixed up. Which just made the story not read as smoothly as I would have liked. Other than that one slight problem, I was very pleased by my first Sally Clements book and I'd definitely love the chance to read more by this author. This story just seemed to fly by, and left me with an overall happy and warm feeling. Which is always a great way for a story to end. If you are a reader who enjoys a shorter romance with a touch of New Adult themes and a sweet side, then I would fully recommend that you check out Ms. Clements "Runaway Groom"

Rating: 4.5 I enjoyed reading this book, it's fun and cute. I can very well identify with April, she is someone that wants to do everything for her sister and those she loves. She is also an aspiring fashion designer, and loyal friend. On the other hand, Matthew is charming and dedicated, yet he is full of contradictions. Mainly because of what happened to him and April's sister in the past. What I liked about the book is how both of them are able to come together and give each other a second chance. The author does a good job maintaining the flow in the story and it's very well-written. From the very beginning we see how much both April and Matthew have to grow and they have to be able to trust one another in order to be together. Overall, the story was great. The events that happened throughout the whole story made the book just much more enjoyable to read. I would recommend this book to everyone that wants a good romance story.

I really enjoyed this book. I was on vacation in Tahoe when I was reading it. I couldn't wait to get back from a hike or dinner to continue reading. So, when I got the chance, I slipped out onto the patio and finished reading this book full of romance and attraction. I liked the maturity and communication from April that is something we don't normally see in romance novels. I recommend reading The Runaway Groom for sure!

Haven't really read any novel of this type before. I have read many romance novels but this genre, I can honestly tell, is new on my shelf . What attracted to me towards the novel was the title, "Runaway groom" because there was a movie called "The runaway bride" which you all might know well. I also have heard many stories about the brides who ran away from their weddings. But never once heard a groom run away that too like a coward without giving a solid reason. I was just wondering what kind of life he will be having if he ran out like that because people talk. This curiosity what drew me to read this novel. Mathew Logan ran out of his wedding to his pregnant girlfriend June Leigh seven years ago. Both were 18 at the time and June had a miscarriage not that really matters. Now June is going to get married for the second time. Everyone in her family are so happy for her. There is going to be a perfect wedding. But her sister April Leigh is shocked to hear that June has sent an invitation to her ex-boyfriend Mathew. If her father sees him at the wedding, he is sure to hurt him. If it is her mother, she will get a heart attack upon seeing him. In either case, June's wedding will be on the verge of getting spoiled once again. So April Leigh must stop Mathew from coming to her sister's wedding. What if instead of stopping him from coming to the wedding, she falls in love with him?. I had great difficulty believing why would Mathew Logan ever come to his ex-lover's wedding whom he was supposed to marry seven years ago. If April Leigh thinks he might be feeling guilty because of what he did to her sister or have moved on with his life, the chances are still very low. Even he knows that. Then why bother meeting him? I also didn't like the fact after knowing what he did to her sister she still wants to sleep with him. No ways. April Leigh is unbelievable , she is confused, and she still believes in the man who made her sister pregnant and also ran out of his wedding like a real coward. There are some revelations in the novel which made my head turn. Do not judge a person by his actions cause you may not know what or who made him to act that way. Runaway Groom by Sally Clements is a very fast paced romantic thriller but it lacks some logic. I liked the beginning of the novel, I was hopeful it would turn into a perfect ending. There are lot of emotions between the characters which I liked. But If you're fan of new adult novels , do not forget to add this novel on your reading list. You'll like it. the sexual tensions between April and Mathew didn't feel like they were real. May be the author could have reduced it a bit.
