DESCRIPTION FROM GOODREADS:
It takes a reality TV show for Wynne to realize love isn't just a game.
Wynne Hardy never thought that she'd get engaged on a reality TV show, but when she met Andy on The Rejection Connection, the two of them hit it off. Now he's asked her to marry him ,much to the public's delight and fascination. They're all set to wed on live TV in a seaside ceremony at the height of the wedding season. But just as Wynee thinks all her dreams are coming true, her ex-boyfriend walks back into her life at the worst possible time. Steve broke her heart years ago, and she's still sorting through her feelings for him. Her heart isn't as clear as her head that it's past time to move on - even though she's engaged to Andy.
At a local TV talk show apperance, Wynne meets Meredith, who won another reality TV show - - Marathon Mom - - proving herself nothing short of a superhero. As Wynne's beach wedding plans spin out of control, Meredith offers to help, unknowingly stepping on Wynne's secret feeling...and exposing some secrets Meredith has been keeping to herself. Can these two reality starts get real about their feelings? Will Wynne go through with her televised wedding and be the perfect June bride the network is looking for?
Reality television is such a big thing today and I thought it was a semi original idea to write and wedding themed book centered around it. But, in the end, I think that the novella was a lost cause. The novella itself was well written at times but had unresolved questions that lingered.
Wynne was not my favorite bride in this series. She seemed to lack dimension and character development. She was also very naive.
Since it was written from Wynne's point of view, we don't get to see what the other characters are really like or what they are thinking. I think that their point of view would have been a huge help with the story.
I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review. All thoughts and opinions are mine.
