Reclaiming His Bride by Heather Tullis
Secrets rule Lana’s life. Her father’s death brought some out into the open, but she has a few of her own: 1) she’s been married to Blake for nearly a year—and trying to get a divorce for most of that time. 2) A moment of emotional weakness and too much champagne ended with her in her husband’s arms—and now she’s pregnant.
Blake hasn’t thought of another woman since they first met, though she believes otherwise. When Lana’s hotel-magnate father offers him the job of regional manager—and an office in the hotel Lana would be managing, Blake jumps at it. Keeping her attention when it’s split between her sisters, the ins and outs of running a resort, and the ‘ghost’ who’s been haunting the building isn’t easy. Learning about the baby convinces him to redouble his efforts though—he isn’t going to give up without a fight, and when someone comes after Lana, the stakes are raised again.
My Review: 3 Stars
I am rather irritated with this book at the moment and should probably sleep on it before I write my full review. I was NOT happy with the ending of this book and think that Lana should have had to go more than a stinkin day before getting her HEA. Blake fought for her for a whole flippin year to make ANY progress with the stubborn woman when everything was ALL HER FAULT because she wrongfully accused him of something he did not do!! So why should she get her HEA after only ONE day of "misery"?! I understand that she had trust issues because of her father but taking it out on Blake because she COMPLETELY misunderstood what she saw and REFUSED to speak with him about it shouldn't give her the free pass that she obviously got. And blaming her stupid comment on pregnancy hormones?! Big fat excuse in my opinion! As of right now I think that Lana is a brat and she does NOT deserve Blake AT ALL! He is WAY too good for her in my opinion! That poor man had to put up with being put down his entire life by his parents and told he was never good enough and then continued to be put down by Lana?! So NOT cool!! And she claims to love him?! Yeah.. she is in definite need of therapy! If the book was just a little bit longer with her doing LOTS of begging and groveling I might be feeling a little different right now. But alas... I am angry and wish that Blake would have just walked away!
And I am still in shock at who was behind everything! I just can't believe that this person could be so evil!! I don't want to give it away so you'll just have to read it to find out what I am talking about.
I may be back in a few days to change this review but as of right now I am posting how I honestly feel. I am definitely continuing one with this series because I am extremely curious about what secrets the other sisters are hiding. And I am SUPER excited that Rosemary's story is next! Hers is the one that I have been dying to read!!
