“Jesse Boston is the man of my dreams. He’s super sexy, super rich, and super funny. He gets all my jokes, he treats me like a princess, and our love life is smokin’ hot.
So I’m gonna marry him. I’m not really picky about how that happens and if my mother wants to have her say, fine. That’s fine. She gave birth to three boys and just one girl. So I get it. She NEEDS a wedding.
But when she invites my childhood nemesis, KAREN, to plan our wedding AND be one of my bride’s maids? Uh—no. It’s not happening.
Karen Krakken Channing will not plan my wedding, will not be at my wedding, and she’s certainly not going to be IN my wedding.
Luckily, my jet-butler, Miles, and my almost-husband get this great idea!
We’re going to elope to Vegas on Christmas Eve eve, get hitched in the most ridiculous way possible, and then fly home in time for Christmas Eve dinner.
We’ve got it all figured out.
Nothing can go wrong.
We will have one simple wedding in like… a drive-through chapel, and call it good.
Take that, KAREN!” – Amazon
Well, Bossy Bride was a fun romantic romp with some steamy sex scenes that I started Saturday before bed and finished Sunday morning while still luxuriating in bed! I wouldn’t have minded having Jesse next to me… but then I wouldn’t have finished reading. 😉
This is the first book I’ve read by J.A. Huss, and the fourth book in the Bossy Brothers series, but you can read this one out of order since Huss gives you enough background. And the background she does give made me want to start with book one in the series, Bossy Brothers: Jesse!
I really enjoyed that the sex was hot and heavy right at the beginning, but then Huss actually wrote a good story. Some romance books are all sex, and I like to be able to sink my teeth into a storyline too. It was also nice to lose myself in a world of uber-rich and beautiful people. Nothing heavy, just fun and light.
Once Jesse and Emma ditch out on their Christmas responsibilities with family and head to Vegas to elope, because “Karen Krakken Channing will not plan my wedding, will not be at my wedding, and she’s certainly not going to be IN my wedding,” that’s when the outrageous millionaire lifestyle gets even more crazy and filled with lots of amusing moments.
The reader gets to enjoy various weddings that are more insane than the last leading up to the super sweet last wedding. And while all of these shenanigans are going on, we are still learning more about Jesse, Emma, and the rest of their family members. Huss does an amazing job balancing character creation and funny scenes.
