When the biggest Steele bachelor finally ties the knot, nothing will keep him from walking down the aisle...

A groom cutting loose on his wedding night isn't out of the ordinary. But Reid Steele's buddies throw a bachelor party Green Beret style, where no man is left behind...or left standing. Reid wakes up the next morning with a hangover to end all hangovers. Or maybe still drunk. Either way, his head is pounding out its own wedding march. The thought of settling down once terrified Reid. Now, the only thing he's scared of is ruining Brynne's big day. She's the love of his life, and he's determined to be in ceremony shape no matter what.

Here comes the bride...and she is furious. She finds Reid wasted on his mama's couch. Brynne Whitfield's no bridezilla, but after her train wreck of a first marriage, she wanted a perfect start to this one. So, yeah, it hurts. And stirs up old insecurities. Can she forgive his screw up? Reid is a wild card, but he's also the man she wants to wake up to for the rest of her life.

Unfortunately, Brynne's not the only angry wife in Steele Ridge. Trouble is on the guest list, turning Brynne and Reid's dream day into a nightmare. Reid must defuse the situation—and stay alive—in time to say "I do."

Where to begin with this short but oh so sweet book? Let me start by saying the characters are very well developed and have a lot of depth, the plot is great and the story is fast paced. Now let's move on to the main characters. Reid Steele former green beret and the man that is about to marry the beautiful and sweet Brynne. I love all of the Steele brothers Reid is one of my favorites. In this short book Reid has been out with his former team and brothers from his military days. He had not planned on getting drunk the night before his wedding, but things happen. What really is bothering him is letting Brynne down by messing up. He promised her he would not be around when she arrived at his Mothers house, she was very specific about him not seeing her before the wedding, and what had he done? Yep, he had been so drunk he passed out on his Mothers living room floor. Brynne, she has not had it easy her first marriage was a disaster and left her feeling insecure about her looks and body. Brynne is a curvy girl and at times feels like her curves make her unattractive. Brynne, is both hurt and mad by Reid not keeping his word, but figures it is not worth ruining their wedding day over. But with her mother and Reids Mother now not getting a long it is too much. Brynne retreats upstairs in order to pull herself together. While looking out the window she spots Reid walking off with a tall thin blonde and that is the very last straw. Hang onto your hats because when Brynne gets mad things go bad quickly. As with any Steele event nothing ever goes smooth and this wedding is no exception. Especially not when one of your former Green Beret friends has a crazy wife. This one is a roller coaster ride for sure and packs a lot of punches in this quick read. So grab the tissues and be prepared to laugh and cry. And when you want to reach in to the book and slap certain people, just know you are not alone.

Adrienne Giordano’s Vowing Love Former Green Beret, Reed Steele is getting married to the sweet, lovely woman of his dreams. What could possibly go wrong on the perfectly planned wedding festivities? Well written story with drama, lots of tension, thrills and chills make for an unusual captivating read. An array of colorful, quirky, vivid and well defined characters bring their flavor to the an unforgettable wedding!! A great read! I volunteered to read Vowing Love ARC. Thanks to author for the opportunity. My opinion is voluntary and my own.

Here comes the bride ... or will she?? This fast paced and action packed novella of Reid and Brynne's wedding day was super fun to read. The only thing that could have made it any better was if it had been longer and we could have drug each and every family member back on the pages to bask in them all again. This wedding was never going to go down easy when Reid was involved, and if making Brynnie mad was the only thing that was going wrong maybe it would be okay but when danger strikes, all bets might be off! When the toughest Steele of all is getting set to marry, it's all hands on deck, including the guys from his old Army unit who show up for an impromptu bachelor party the night before the wedding. All would still be fine and good if he wasn't so hung over the morning of the wedding that he can't even see straight! Brynne Whitfield adores Reid Steele and has been so excited to marry him, but when she finds out he felt the need to get wasted in order to marry her, she's spitting nails. Does she want to go through with this wedding when the groom couldn't even see fit to give her the one day she wanted to be perfect after her nightmare of a first marriage?

I loved reading about Brynne and Reid's wedding day! This is a fun novella with plenty of drama that does not disappoint. I love Brynne and Reid together and how they interact, so it was great to read the story of their wedding. This is a novella in an established series, so, while it is a stand alone, it will make more sense and you will enjoy it so much more, if you've read at least one or two of the prior books. However, the series is so good that you really owe to yourself to read them all. The author is on my must read authors' list.

Although this is a novella, the author has put a lot of action in it! Reid overdid things at his bachelor party with his Green Beret buddies after promising Brynne that he wouldn’t get drunk. She is furious, but that’s not the only problem of their wedding day. It seems like some of their guests are having major issues in their marriage that threatens to ruin Reid & Brynne’s special day. A great read!

Vowing Love brings us to the wedding day of two of those great couples, Reid and Brynne. Getting to spend additional time with people I already love adds to the delight I get when I get a chance to read any book by Adrienne Giordano. All of the Steele's are great but none of them are perfect; isn't that one of the things that lets us connect with them? Boy, does Reid mess up and on his wedding day no less, and it kills him to fail Brynne, much less hurt her. But that may not be the only thing that might kill him! Those two make such a great couple! I got to read an ARC from the author and you can imagine how thrilled I was to get in an early read. Of course, I will be reading it again on the day my personal copy arrives. Note that the book is a novella.

Vowing Love is the perfect addition to the Steele Ridge series! This fun story was entertaining and kept me turning pages to see what disaster would happen next. Brynne had me cracking up! I voluntarily read and reviewed a complimentary Advance Reader Copy.

A good, suspenseful short story. As Reid and Brynne prepare to marry, several things happen to make Reid think it might not happen. Brynne starts having doubts when she finds him still drunk from the night before. Then a crazy woman holds them both at gun point. Will they live until their wedding? If Reid has anything to say about it, they will.

Such a fun quick glance back into the Steele’s life. The story takes place on the morning of Reid and Brynne’s wedding. Having read the other Steele Ridge books, I knew to expect nothing to go according to plan. However, I wasn’t quite prepared for how turned off I was by Brynne’s attitude/insecurity when she finds Reid still drunk/hungover from the night before. Thankfully that quickly changes when she finds herself mixed up in danger with Reid. I loved going back and getting a glimpse of one of my favorite families. I received this ARC in exchange for my honest review.

Reid Steele is in big trouble. After his bachelor party, he's under the weather. Not the way he should be feeling on his wedding day. When his momma and his fiancé are up in arms, he's ashamed. He figures that his day couldn't get any worse. Suddenly it does. He finds himself faced with a woman with a gun. Can he escape and make it to his wedding? Reid is stubborn, opinionated and madly in love with Brynne. I liked him. He's a character but the Steele Family is always memorable. Brynne may seem mild mannered, but she has an inner strength that surprised me. Vowing Love is a great novella. It has romance, danger and humor. I read it in one sitting. The dialogue is smart and sassy. I couldn't believe all that happened on their wedding day. I can't wait to see the next adventure in Steele Ridge. I received a copy of this book which I voluntarily read and reviewed. My comments are my honest opinion.

This very short, but impactful story was fun to read. If you haven’t read the other books yet, you can certainly still enjoy it, but I will say that I think is has more “feels” if you know the other characters, and even know Reid and Brynne’s story first. This is their wedding day, and as with all other Steele Ridge books, some chaos must be ensured. Another great read about a family I would love to be friends with. Hope there are more books to come!

Vowing Love by Adrienne Giordano Steele Ridge #9 This novella length story sees Reid and Brynne having to deal with a crazy situation before they can say their wedding vows. The experience, though difficult, only drew them closer together. I thoroughly enjoyed this snippet of time in Steele Ridge and the opportunity of catching a glimpse of some other characters in the series. Thank you to the author for the ARC- This is my honest review. 4 Stars
