TBR Challenge 2012: Personal Challenge

The Shy Bride by Lucy Monroe

3/5 stars Grade B-/C+

TBR Challenge 2012: Personal Challenge. Added to Amazon wish list Aug 9, 2010.

The Shy Bride is an unexpectedly sweet, non-angsty romance. The Greek billionaire tycoon turns out to be arrogant and somewhat controlling, but never mean or dismissive. The author write him with just enough vulnerability to make him sympathetic and likeable. The agoraphobia story line was interesting, as well.

The writing is serviceable with no major eye-rolling moments. After all, these books aren't suppose to be believable, they're contemporary fantasies. Overall a fun way to spend a few hours.
