Overview

2nd Edition


Of all the tiny towns, in all the world, he walks into mine.


Texas native Kieran Quinn has hit the big time, working in Manhattan as a columnist for Gloss, a national literary magazine. He’s well-known for his snarky, sardonic columns, but deep down he’s more interested in exploring what makes people tick than his editor would like. He keeps his desire to find his own Mr. Right hidden under a sexy, carefree persona that favors champagne and underwear models of the male variety.


Jaxon Lang loves being the high school principal in tiny Buckwheat Springs, Texas after relocating from Austin to pursue his relationship with Danetta Archer, despite her reputation for leaving grooms at the altar. So far, he’s avoided examining the questions he has about himself, certain that marriage will put them to rest. Then Kieran arrives in town. Kieran’s charm and unique attitudes about sex and attraction soon challenge Jaxon’s concept of what—and who—he wants.


While covering the latest wedding of a real-life “runaway bride," Kieran falls hard for the gorgeous—and supposedly straight—groom, Jaxon Lang, despite that ridiculous X. Then Kieran discovers the bride’s hiding a shocking secret.

This book was an enjoyable and entertaining read.  No frills about it, just a fun “wrong time/wrong place” falling in love story.  Kieran is a columnist for a NY magazine.  His columns always pokes fun at individuals are looking for love and those who try to help people find love.  Lately, writing his column doesn’t hold the same appeal to him as it did when he started.  You see, Kieran is starting to desire that same everlasting love that he humiliates in his work.   Kieran goes on assignment in Texas to cover a story about a real life “runaway bride.”  This woman has left three men at the altar and is now getting ready to marry fiancé #4.  When he gets into town and meets the couple, he is instantly taken with the groom-to-be, Jaxon.  While Kieran tries to figure out why the bride, Danetta, leaves these men at the altar, he and Jaxon begin to form a bond that threatens not only his view on life but Jaxon’s as well.  What is Danetta hiding?  Will the wedding take place?  Will Kieran find his Happily Ever After?    Like I stated before, this was an enjoyable read, but not one that left me feeling blown away.  The writing was solid and the story was interesting and fun, but I didn’t fall in love with either character.  There wasn’t anything wrong with either MC, but I just couldn’t connect with them.  What bothered me the most was that every man Danetta left at the altar forgave her.  Not only did they forgive her, but they are all still friends and the men are friends with each other.  Really?  She leaves you at the altar and you completely take her reasoning and forgive her?  Yes, she is not truly a bad person, she has her own personal issues, but WOW, it’s a little too much that everyone moves on and is okay with what happened.  I know this is fiction, but I couldn’t get past this point.   Now that I’ve ranted a little, let’s get back to this was an entertaining read.  It is the perfect book for a rainy afternoon where you don’t have to think much and just want a sweet love story.  You will get that from this book.  I would definitely read more from this author. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This book has been given to me free in exchange for an honest review. I really liked the premis of this story, big city columnist headed to small town Texas to write a belittling story for the purpose of selling some papers. The columnist, MC Kieran, is getting tired of playing with underwear models and writing stories in which he has to make people look like idiots for the entertainment of others. Kieran heads to Texas to write a story about a bride who has left three grooms at the alter and is about to go down the isle with numberr 4. He not only discovers the man of his dreams , but also some people he really likes and finds it difficult to write his usual column. He knows his boss won't be happy. After meeting Jaxon, groom number 4, in which he feels an instant attraction, and grooms 1,2,and 3, Kieran wants to know why all these seemingly intelligent men would fall for the bride who leaves at the last minute. And then they still care for her. In the end he finds there is a more complicated story. I liked the story for the most part before the two MC's got together. The insta love was just too quick for me. I really liked the Kieran character, but I thought the Jaxon character lacked depth. Just didn't buy it. He was too much hurry up with the sex. The A, B, and the C sex columns got overplayed. Maybe if there had been more back stories it would have made more sense to me.  This story is a nice easy read.

FiveStars I laughed, I cried and I forgot to cook dinner. This is a fantastic romantic comedy I found impossible to put down. New York playboy journalist Kieran Quinn travels to Texas, following a story about real-life runaway bride, Danetta Archer. Jaxon Lang is Danetta’s most recent fiance. Kieran plans a mocking literary send-up of the deluded groom-to-be until he meets the most beautiful man he’s ever seen. Beyond the initial attraction, urbane Kieran and high school principal Jaxon strike up an immediate rapport and an unlikely friendship. Problematically, Kieran only has a week to uncover the secrets surrounding Jaxon’s upcoming nuptials and he can’t seem to control his attachment to the groom. I won’t say any more about the plot because I don’t want to give anything away. Both Buckwheat Springs, Texas and New York City are infused with character. The characters themselves are vividly drawn. I fell in love with the lonely, slightly affected Kieran when he first forgot his model lover’s name. I fell in love with Jaxon as Kieran slowly revealed the beautiful, benevolent and slightly misued man. This story is one of self-discovery and carefully placed trust. While the romance is sweet and gentle, the chemistry between Jaxon and Kieran is scorching hot. I was given this in return for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads. ~Sarah FourandHalfStars This book had a little of everything, deception, secrets, heartbreak, lots of lies, and a very sweet romance. Kieran was a player, but you couldn't help but like him. He wasn't happy in his work but was trying to make it right. I thought the author did a fantastic job with his character. Jaxon was a great guy, he had no clue what he wanted in a relationship, I thought he was kinda weak in waiting to explore his feelings just before his wedding. The relationship that developed between Jaxon and Kieran seemed pretty realistic. The heartbreak Jason felt was shattering. This was a good story, it had a weird twist with the bride and her issues, but still a good read. I was given this in return for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads. ~Sherry
