Kurzbeschreibung

Once upon a time, Marly Akers had believed that, for better or worse, people made their own luck…

Marly wonders how she could ever have believed it. Jilted and pregnant, she’s come back to Marietta with her tail between her legs, the blow to her ego huge as she begins working at her family’s small newspaper, the Copper Mountain Courier, and sharing a tiny apartment with her disapproving mom.

Things can’t get any worse. Or maybe they can. Drake Everett, who secretly captured her teenaged heart and then publicly trampled on it, decides to make her re-acquaintance. Though Drake isn’t the sharp, funny, cocky, arrogant rich boy of yore. These days he seems sharp, funny… and supportive and decent, and Marly realizes she could fall for him all over again… if she listens to her heart. But what about her reporter’s head, which has sniffed out a story that paints Drake as the sweet talker she’s always known…?

3.0 von 5 Sternen a bit different, but another good story set in Marietta. 20. Mai 2014
Von Feehan5 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The good: Loved the different storyline. The leading character is pregnant and not by the hero! It was a different twist that added another human layer to the Marietta puzzle. I liked Marly, insecurities and all. The story between marly and het mom was almost stronger than the romance. Lots of family dynamics on both sides. Also loved the character of FLY, he really felt right for Marietta. I'm reading the whole series, and it was nice to read about different places in the town, other than the chocolate shop.

The bad: There are some leaps in this book that come out of nowhere. They are barely speaking, nothing physical has happened between them, and she decides to suddenly sleep with him. Then she does a complete turn around and suddenly trusts him, but for no apparent reason. DISCLAIMER: I'm a prude. I'm ok with sex scenes if they fit into the story, and make sense for the overall story. The last sex scene in this, is a bit much for me. It felt gratuitous, and really cheapened the book for me. Sad, because it was totally unneeded.

Overall: This book is good, deals with heavy subject matters and you feel the emotion. With a few tweaks it could be stellar, but the author has crafted a solid story in keeping with the series.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Mother-Daughter Dynamics gives this story universal appeal 19. Mai 2014
Von CKFashant - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Journalist Marly Akers' upbringing was what some would call strict. At the age of 17, her mother had found herself pregnant, abandoned, and trapped. So, in order to make sure that that never happened to her daughter, she laid out stringent expectations, and bestowed harsh consequences for not meeting those expectations. Now, nine years after leaving home to start the life her mother always wanted, Marly is back in Marietta...pregnant and abandoned.

Drake Everett has always been good at playing a part. The cocky sports star. The class clown. The careless playboy. Before, however, his act was always to cover up the dark truth about his dysfunctional family. Now that the act is no longer needed, can he convince the only woman who has ever mattered that he is not playing a part? Or will his attentions only leave her feeling trapped?

When looking at the relationship between Marly and Angelina, it is hard not to draw comparisons to "Sweet Home Alabama" (movie, not song). Angelina loves Marly, she really does, but she doesn't want her to repeat her mistakes. It was really hard to like Angelina, but you can't like every character, and she serves a huge purpose to Marly's growth.

Drake was a bit difficult to get on board with. I felt that his character was treated more as a secondary character than a hero. His character was not fleshed out as much as I would have liked, but the parts that I did see were admirable.

The supporting characters were a split, in my opinion. Fly was awesome. He will remind readers of every dream of a perfect grandfather they have ever had. Robin, on the other hand, was annoying. I tried to find her sense of humor endearing, but it just came off ill-timed and self-serving. That may have been the point of the author, though. There really are people out there in real life that just can't help but be this way. There is nothing really malicious about them, so they still have genuine friends, but those friends probably groan every time they open their mouths

Overall, the mother-daughter relationship is the jewel of this book. It is real and proves that mothers and daughters don't have to have perfect relationships to love each other.

4.0 von 5 Sternen sweet read! 20. Mai 2014
Von Lilly Christine - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I like, like, like this book! Marly's back home and realizes she's "adopted" her mother's dream, living the bright lights big city world vicariously for her mom. I really loved the candid honesty about the Mother Daughter relationship: Marly's sense of independence, the "real" kinds of sacrifices Angelique had to make to accommodate Marly, the trust issues passed from mother to daughter, and Marly's final realization about what was right for her. Also the tension between striking out in the "real" world and enjoying the comforts of home. For me, the romance ALMOST took a backseat to the relationship between mom and daughter, as Marly's unrequited crush on the hero related to her bucking her mother's influence and "claiming" her man. Her suspicion of Drake was understandable, but she does a total turnaround when she begs him to sleep w. her: this was the only plot leap I had trouble with. The final scene is v. cute. I really enjoyed the honesty between Marly and Drake in the truck when they shared takeout......some of the other scenes between them were a bit more trite/had less nuance. The other thing I liked is that this author referred to some of the Copper Mountain locales without overdoing it.......sparing the reader yet another scene about the chocolate shop........All in all, a SUPER addition to the excitement around the "Great Wedding Giveaway"!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Book to Fall in Love With 20. Juni 2014
Von Patricia D. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Just slightly more erotic than sweet, this is a book to read when you need a"happy" story that is connected, clearly and obviously, to other happy ending stories. While I'm not sure I would recommend it to my mom, I am sure a few of my friends would love it, and even maybe a couple of my sisters.
"The Substitute Bride" is actually about three substitutions in weddings. Each couple has challenges ahead, but for the moment, the emphasis is on getting to "I do". The author has a wonderful grasp of human emotion and the mysterious things that provide the drive for all of us. Above all, in this story, she is doing an examination of the things that drive the relationship between a mother and her daughter. And all the things that these two types of people do to each other in their efforts to define themselves without damaging the image the other has of them.
I adored Marley from word one, but I found myself thinking a lot about my mother as I "met" Angelina and got to know her better. I'm pretty sure the author had no intention of causing such introspection when she started to write, but I found myself thinking about the relationship I have with my own mother.
The book is part of a series. I highly recommend it, and suspect I feel the same way about the other books in the group.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great addition to Montana Born Brides 30. Juli 2014
Von Cindy H - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The Substitute Bride by Kathleen O'Brien is book #7 in the Montana Born Bride series and it is a good addition to the series. This book is a good, sweet romance of 2 people reconnecting-Marly Akers who returns to Marietta, Montana, alone and pregnant and Drake Everett who was her teenage crush. This book has a great cast of secondary characters, wonderful family dynamics and is emotional. The relationship between Marly and her mother was especially interesting. A book that kept me interested. Looking forward to more books by Kathleen O'Brien.
I received a complimentary ARC from the publisher for an honest review.
