Overview

Emmie Morgan woke up from heart transplant surgery, saw her best friend Brandon Tan sitting by her bedside, and promptly asked him to marry her. If there was a faster way to ruin a friendship, she didn’t know it.

One year on, Bran has returned home to open a restaurant and Emmie adds trying to make amends to her already chaotic life. She’s also running her own music venue, battling survivor’s guilt—oh, and secretly tending a wedding obsession sprung from her near-death experience.

Bran needs answers. But all Emmie has are problems. Hating that he couldn’t help her last time, he resolves to ease the trouble in her eyes. He sets aside their attraction and awkward past and tries to focus on being friends again.

If she would just stop trying on wedding dresses…

I thought this book was a slow read. It took a while to get into it and I found myself wanting to skip past pages that didn’t seem to add anything to the story. The character of Brandon was nice but I felt like he let Em walk all over him. Em was very indecisive and seem to pull him in every direction which I found more than annoying. It was almost like this story was about someone getting an organ and how it might feel than it was about a romance. I am not interested in continuing this series. received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily review this book. This is my honest review.

After a year of surviving but not being happy, obsessed with anything wedding-related, Emmie meets Bran again. But she need to figure out her feelings, her obsession, her unhappiness before opening herself again to Bran. A powerful and touching story about true love, second chances and happiness.

The Wedding Obsession is Book number one in the Morgan Sister Brides series by Madeline Ash. This is Emmie Morgan and Brandon “Bran” Tan’s story. This is an emotional story. Bran and Emmie have been friends for years but circumstances drove them apart. Now, Bran is back in town. Can Bran and Emmie repair their friendship and take a chance on love? Bran and Emmie have been through so many struggles. My heart hurt for them as they worked through these struggles. I fell in love with Bran. Emmie’s character holds back from letting others really see what she is feeling. This makes it harder to find a connection with Emmie but considering what she has gone through in life you get a better understanding of her character. A moving heartfelt romance with so many layers of emotions. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

This book is a friends to lovers story with a bit of a twist. Overall the story didn't really work for me but it is well written with nicely developed characters and a unique storyline for this trope. It's a quick easy read so I think some will really enjoy it.

Should you always listen to your heart, especially when it is a new heart to Emmie? Emmie wakes up after her heart transplant and asks her best friend, Brandon to marry her. Of course he immediately said yes but what a way to ruin a friendship when she re-nigs on the proposal. Fast forward one year, Bran returns home after being abroad to open his own restaurant. She tries to make amends to Bran, while still having to deal with survivor guilt and her secret wedding obsession. I so enjoyed this emotional book, organ donation is the most wonderful gift that you can give and receive. Being in the medical field I have dealt with this many times. Loved the relationship that Bran and Emmie had and the journey that they took to make amends. Great characters with wonderful dialogue. I highly recommend this book.

I enjoyed this book. It was one of those reads that was a for me slow at times but I understood why it needed to move at the pace that it did but it still was slower than I am used to reading. Bran is a great best friend to Emmie for years. I mean the entire time they've known each other she has has heart issues. And we first meet them on the day she is waking up from her heart transplant. Oh a Happy Ending as the book starts " Will You Marry Me?" But then where would our book be if that was the case right. This book is well written and not necessary about health issues, but more about their friendship and her family's deep bond. There is another cool idea that our author puts out to the universe in this book and I for one really thought about this for a long time around I finished the book. Yes, I am speaking in riddles but once you read the book you will understand. I can not wait to see which of the sisters is next to get her book from this Author.

I totally enjoyed reading The Wedding Obsession by Madeline Ash, book one in her Moore Sisters Brides series. When Emmie Morgan awoke after heart transplant surgery she asked her best friend Brandon Tan to marry her. This was not like Emmie as she never cared about marriage. Fast forward one year and a healthy Emmie is running her dream music venue, still battling survivor’s guilt, and keeping her wedding obsession secret in her closet. Bran returns from Barcelona to open a restaurant and in need of answers. Emmie is frustrated and wishes she could understand her fixation with weddings. As these two focus on repairing their friendship, they agree to seek possibilities and causes for Emmie’s obsession. This was an unusual romance story with many layers. Emmie and Bran are truly soul mates, wanting the best life has to offer for each other. The search for answers and reasons brings them closer and in love. I was deeply affected from reading this book. My sister unexpectedly died from a brain aneurysm, devastating all close to her. She was also a donor and six people benefitted from her death. We received a moving letter from the husband of the recipient of her lungs, telling us how grateful they were. Ms. Ash wrote a wonderful and moving story that is not to be missed. This story is filled with fun dialogue and endearing characters. I highly recommend this book to other readers and look forward to the next book in the series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

The Wedding Obsession a good book. It might have taken me awhile to get into but once I did I really enjoyed the connection between the characters. A heart warming friend to possible romance storyline. Looking forward to reading more by the author Madeline Ash.

When a heart knows what it wants, it will do anything to get it. Emmie Morgan grew up with a heart condition and when she finally received a transplant and woke up, she asked her best friend, Bran Tan, to marry her. Bran, being the good friend he was, couldn’t say no. But things got weird after that and they didn’t talk for a year until Emmie’s mother invited Bran to Emmie’s rebirthday party, a celebration of the day she got her new heart. After the party, Emmie and Bran work on getting their friendship back on track and soon decide to give romance a try. But, Emmie is so obsessed with getting married (even though she doesn’t believe in the concept of a marriage), and Bran just couldn’t take it anymore. It was time for a break while Emmie gets her head straight and Bran moves on with his life. Finding the way back to each other might be a little difficult, but with determination, they can do it. This story was different than most I have read. The heart transplant recipient made for a unique story line. I liked Bran, but he almost seemed like a pushover in some scenes, and Emmie got on my nerves a little bit with her flakiness. But when I found out the reasons Emmie was obsessed with weddings, it all made sense. It was also obvious Bran really loved Emmie and would do anything for her health and happiness. And, the end of this book is a real tear jerker. It was obvious the author put a lot of work into this story, either with a lot of research or first hand knowledge, to make it seem so real.
