You’ve heard that expression about always being a bridesmaid and never the bride? Well, my ex has been in more weddings than I can count.

They’re all for mutual friends, too, so every time I turn around I’m seeing her name tagged in somebody’s wedding album.

One of these days, I’m sure she’ll be the bride. I just hope she can forgive me in time for me to be the groom.

Book Review:

Ahh! This book was perfect and everything I could have hoped for. I loved it and read it in one day! The Bridesmaid is the third book in Jess Mastrorakos’ Brides of Beaufort And it was amazing! I have been loving this series and they keep on getting better and better. 

Layla had been hurt by Zac before. Is she willing to let him back into her life? Layla was fun. She worked as a teacher and she loved to paint. She was kind but she was also weary because Zac had left her before. I loved Layla’s strength. She wasn’t a pushover but I also love how she forgave Zac. She was smart but she did not allow her feelings to control her. But if her relationship with Zac were to grow, Layla is going to have to learn to trust him again. 

Oh, Zac, he truly was just trying his best. I loved his relationship with his son, Grayson, and how protective he was of his sister, Jo. Zac made poor decisions at times but he was trying to amend his mistakes. I liked how he was open to help. He wasn’t perfect but he was willing to grow and he truly did love Lydia. 

Zac and Layla were so cute together. I loved their easy banter. They had their issues at times, but they still loved each other. Grayson was also such a sweet character! I enjoyed reading about Grayson connecting with Layla, too cute. I also adored Jo, she was so funny. The sibling relationships were a great addition to the book.The characters were so much fun in this book and I really enjoyed seeing the girls and guys interact with each other. They were true friends to each other. 

I just loved everything about this book! I did not want to put it down and finished it before I knew it. I was really sad about finishing it so quickly because the next book doesn’t come out till later. The Bridesmaid is a sweet second chance, single dad contemporary Marine romance.
