Something New is the newest and final book in the Lone Star Match series by Megan Ryder. All of the stories take place on Whidbey Island off Galveston, TX., the week before a wedding. Caroline, the bride and Matt, the groom, gather their estranged friends together for a hopeful time of reconciliation and love. This is the story of Anna Costado and Wyatt Turner whose romance went up in flames. Wyatt and Anna are both filled with trepidation about seeing each other knowing their history and how it all ended. The question is whether Caroline and Matt can finally help these two see how perfect they really are for each other. (cute side note: Costado in Spanish means cost or price which is what Anna feels she is paying for her choices)

DNF at 33% Anna Maria Costado is an actress, she is filmed screaming at a waitress and her career is about to implode. She returns to her home town in Texas, five years after she left, for a friend’s wedding and runs slap-bang into Wyatt Turner, the man she loved, a former footballer until an injury destroyed his career just as it started. I lurve second-chance romances, sports-romances and wedding-based romances but this book left me cold. I think Megan Ryder was too busy trying to find a good reason why Anna and Wyatt did and said the things they did (eg Anna was screaming at the waitress because she has a deadly nut allergy and the food contained nuts) to actually make Anna and Wyatt likeable. Basically, in all their interactions with each other, and Anna's interactions with others, they were narcissistic, jumped to conclusions, didn't trust and made everything all about them. I promised that I would read another two chapters before I bailed but in the end I could only manage one, it just carried on, Anna being bitchy to someone (for her own special reasons) and then Wyatt deciding he was the arbiter of what is and isn't acceptable for Anna to do and say. Then they bring it all back to their break-up and a big case of "No, I didn't - but you did!" backwards and forwards between them. I disliked both characters and just didn't want to read anymore! I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

Anna was so childish. Big attitude and never once gave wyatt a break. He bowed down to her to make her happy. All she thought about was her and her woe is me life. She was nasty to everyone and even getting fired didn't change that. I skipped over 2/3 of the book because all of the characters were trying to talk at once and it was distracting!

There was too many grudges from the past in this book. I realize, or as it is said "I get it", that this book was supposed to heal those grudges. For a good size book, that meant way too much actual hate and sarcasm. I had to take frequent breaks to stop the stress building inside me reacting from the book. I have a question for the author, as an example of confusion. Since when does a man get down on bended knee with a jewelry box, and give a speech that does not include "Will you marry me"?

I've really enjoyed the previous 2 books in this series but this one just didn't work for me. While I enjoyed the overall concept of the story, the lead female character, Anna Maria. drove me crazy.and the lead male, Wyatt, wasn't much better. They did and said things both past and present that just didn't make a lot of sense to me. I just didn't feel the chemistry between the two.

I enjoyed Something New by Megan Ryder, book three in The Lone Star Match series. Anna Maria Castado is not as happy with her acting career despite her role on a nightime soap opera. Her PR plan is working too well since the press focuses on her negative behavior, fitting for her tv character. After a knee injury ends his NFL football career, Wyatt Turner becomes a coach at his alma mater and rebuild his life. Anna and Wyatt were once in love but graduation separated these two by distance and dreams. Five years later Anna and Wyatt spend time with their college friends on an island off Galveston, the week before two of them marry, but will these two learn to compromise on their expectations of themselves and each other. Will these two get a second chance at love? I enjoyed reading this second chance story and had trouble putting it book down, reading it in one day. Ms. Ryder drew me in and did not let go until I read the last page. I highly recommend this book to other readers and I look forward to the next book Ms. Ryder authors. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

Something New is the third book in the Lone Star Match series. Weddings are supposed to be happy celebrations. But when Anna and Wyatt come face to face for the first time since they ended their relationship, will they rekindle their love? Or will things just get worse? I really enjoyed this book, and definitely recommend it.

Something New by Megan Ryder, book 3 in the Lone Star Match series. This book took me longer to get into but I did enjoy it. Likable characters and great dialogue. I've enjoyed other books by Megan Ryder and look forward to reading more of her books.

A fantastic end to the series!! Anna and Wyatt are back on the island for their friends' wedding and hoping to avoid each other as much as possible. That's not possible with a bride like Caroline though! I'll admit that over the first two books of the series I didn't like Anna much. She seemed mean and overly diva-ish. Ok, she's a Hollywood star but these were her friends way before stardom was even on the horizon. Anna's story really made me understand her, her decisions, her guardedness. I don't feel like I got to know Wyatt much in the first two books but this book taught me everything I needed to know about his supportiveness, friendship, and struggles. This entire series is about second chances but Anna and Wyatt's was one of the hardest. They both had struggles about their dreams, difficulties trusting, and communicating with each other. Their time on the island showed them how perfect they are for each. While their story can be read as a standalone, I really think that in order to fully appreciate Anna and Wyatt you should read the first two books. I will definitely miss this series but I am looking forward to what comes next from this author! *This is my voluntary review of an advanced reader copy*

Megan Ryder keeps get better. The Lone Star Match series is a nostalgic stroll down memory lane. What begins with promise leads to disappointment. In life there are two major roads. The one we seek to carve out for ourselves and the path that leads to easy street. Smooth sailing is what we all crave but hard work turns out to be the most rewarding. That is the message that Something New sets out to deliver. Wyatt and Anna are rebuilding their lives and all roads point to home. Can they forgive the past and look toward a brighter future together? With common sense and an open heart, the possibilities are endless.
