I fell in love with the work of Jo Watson during her first book in this series. This book is even better than the first. “Almost a Bride” has such a funny story between its covers. I laughed so much.
Chris is a screenwriter who is on vacation trying to get inspiration for his next story. When he meets Annie he thinks that she has inspired him so much that he uses her story. But he winds up hurting Annie and losing the love of his life at the same time.
Annie is on vacation from a breakup with her ex. She winds up on the beach and meets a man who is not her type at all. She falls in love, but finds out that he can really hurt her emotionally. He hurts her so bad that she cannot be with him anymore.
Love can be amazing. Love can be hurtful. In the end Annie and Chris finally figure out that being with each other is better them being without their love.
That awkward moment you catch your boyfriend in bed with another woman and then mistakenly get arrested #chargesdropped
Annie knows life isn't always fair. Sometimes you win. Sometimes you lose. Sometimes you get mistaken for a crazed intruder when you come home early and find your boyfriend wearing nipple clamps with a coworker on the night you thought he was going to propose to you.
The important thing is to move on, and for Annie that means treating herself to a tropical vacation. But when she runs into her ex and his new woman staying at the same resort, reason is washed out to sea. Caught off guard, Annie pretends she's with Chris, a cute screenwriter she meets on the beach. With his own writing blocked, Chris is happy to help Annie craft a story to save face. Soon Annie isn't just getting over her ex, she's getting under Chris. As her fictional feelings grow increasingly real, Annie has to decide if she's ready to risk her heart on a new relationship.
