Many thanks to Bookouture for the blog tour invite and ARC, as I close the blog tour for Laura Briggs and ‘If You’re Not the One’ with a review.
Natalie isn’t a romantic. She doesn’t believe in true love, or destiny. She thinks that people are just plain lucky if they happen to find someone. It’s coincidence and nothing more.
As a wedding dress designer though, she knows she has to keep these feelings under wraps. Even if she’s suspicious that Harper, the bride she’s working with, might secretly agree with her. Because if Harper admitted she wasn’t sure about love, it might also mean giving up on a millionaire husband-to-be and the lavish island wedding of her dreams.
But, for Natalie, as her feelings develop for both her on-off boyfriend Chad, and for the boy-next-door Brayden, she starts to fear that her heart might not be as immune to love as she claims…
Could love have been there all along? And as the wedding approaches, who will find a happy-ever-after, who will find their way to themselves, and who will get left behind?
What does TWG think?
‘If You’re Not the One then why does my soul feel Glad today?’
Anyone else think of Daniel Bedingfield’s song when they saw the title? Probably showing my age now haha.
We are back with the gang Natalie, Tessa, Ama, and of course Blake, where the Wedding Belles are doing what they do best. Of course things are still rocky for them where relationships are concerned, but they’re trying their best to do what’s right for their own lives, instead of what’s right for those around them.
I cannot fault Laura Briggs’ level of romance at all. This author certainly knows how to get her characters thinking with their hearts, be unlucky in love, as well as being able to bring romance to the forefront of the storyline in a way that allows readers to relate to their choices.
I did enjoy catching up with the gang again, and I loved having my tastebuds tickled by the scrumptious descriptions of mouthwatering delights. Yes. My stomach rumbled….more than once. However I did feel as though the storyline was unnecessarily padded out at times which meant that I probably wasn’t as enthralled as I would have hoped.
All in all, ‘If You’re Not the One’ is an ideal read for romantics everywhere and what perfect story to pick up this Valentines.
