REVIEW: Texas Wedding by Kathleen O’BrienThursday, November 5, 2009 1:00
I’m still formulating my thoughts about this one. I generally enjoy the reunited lovers plot line, but this couple was bitter and angry.
Susannah especially rubbed me wrong. She was bitter and angry, and her actions throughout didn’t speak well of her. She did her level best to treat Trent like shit, then complained when he didn’t fall all over her. Basically she was a complete and total bitch. This was explained away because of Trent’s actions in the past, but that was 11 years ago. I really felt like there should have been more growth on her part.
Trent I liked quite a bit better. He admitted what he did was wrong and tried to make up for it. He wasn’t afraid to say he didn’t have all the answers. He was tired of running and just wanted to put his life back together, which included making peace with Susannah and things that happened in their past.
Having said that, I didn’t read any of the previous books in this series and I get the impression I missed a lot of backstory. It could be my impressions would be different if I read the previous books. I’m still trying to decide if I’m going to do that. We’ll see.
The days of Susannah Everly dreaming about white dresses, churches and Trent Maxwell are long gone. So it’s more than a little funny that she finds herself actually married to the guy. But she’s determined to save the family ranch by any means possible, and if Trent is those means…
Still, they both know the deal. This is a business arrangement and there are rules. Rules that do not include rekindling those old feelings or surprise midnight seductions. So what’s Susannah to do when Trent seems determined to break their agreement? Especially when what he offers is way too tempting.
