He rides a Harley and she likes long walks, but the chemistry between them is immediate
Ryne Kilpatrick was once in love, and he thought it was forever. But tragedy struck, and he’s sure he’ll never love again. He’s become a bit of a lone wolf and a player, preferring to casually flirt then walk away.
When the sexy bad boy starts building a cabin next to her boutique in Blossom, Texas, Mona Perez finds it too close for comfort. The attraction sizzles, but she needs to keep her distance as she no longer trusts romance after her parent’s marriage imploded. Mona’s shocked to learn that her mom and dad still love each other, but her mom feels like she can’t recommit because Mona needs her. So Mona plays cupid and comes up with the perfect plan to prove she’s emotionally moved on—she’ll ask Ryne to be her pretend boyfriend.
Mona’s confident she won’t lose her heart, but her pretend boyfriend starts to seem like the real deal. Should she keep up the charade or follow her heart?
Mona and Ryne’s fake relationship in Designing His Bride by Lenora Worth, book three in her Brides of Blossom, Texas series just might be more real than fake. This heartwarming story begins with Ryne building a cabin next to Mona’s wedding boutique.
Mona loves the quiet and especially taking long walks in the woods that Ryne is in the process of tearing down. Ryne was once in love, a forever love relationship, but a tragedy occurred, making him believe he would never love again.
These two opposites share an off the charts chemistry that causes electrical shocks, showering those around them. Mona is in dire need of a relationship to prove to her mother that she has emotionally moved on and her mother can recommit to her dad.
Asking lone wolf, Harley rider, Ryne to be her pretend boyfriend takes her out of her comfort level but she will sacrifice her feelings to make her mother believe. It’s the perfect plan; right? The problem, how to keep from falling for this bad boy as Ryne comes to terms with the fact that he’s falling for Mona.
Ms. Worth wrote a wonderful and heartwarming story that is definitely not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sexual chemistry, amusing banter, and endearing characters giving Mona and Ryne a chance to take their fake relationship to another level. I highly recommend Designing His Bride to other readers.
