I'm so excited to see my second book in the Lone Star Match series out in the wild today!
I loved these characters for so many reasons. Brigid is a type-A personality, trying to please everyone and be the person everyone else wants her to be. The problem is - she has no idea who SHE wants to be. She cares deeply for Grady, could probably even love him, but refuses to see it because he doesn't fit into the definition she has been given her whole life. Yet, he is the one man who loves her exactly as she is and with whom she can be herself. But he also sees deep inside to her insecurities so she can't hide from him and that's pretty darn scary for Brigid.
Grady has a lot of baggage but is remarkably well-adjusted (if I do say so myself). His older brother is Matthew, the groom and they were very close when they were young. When their parents divorced, the boys were split, with Matthew going to live with his mom and Grady didn't see his mom (or Matthew) for a very long time. His mother was more interested in appearances and status than her family and people, and Grady was scarred by that. Now, he's in love with someone who seems to have the same focus - Brigid focused on her job, climbing the company ladder - but he sees to her fears deep inside and still wants to help her, to rescue her. But is he enough and can he hang on long enough for her to realize that he is exactly what he needs?
I hope you check out Something Borrowed!
Three Bridesmaids. Three lost loves. One matchmaking bride. With just a week before the wedding, can a bride-to-be reunite her bridesmaids with the ones who got away? Brigid is focused on her career and Grady is not the man she pictured for her future. But Grady wants more and she must decide if she should stick to the safety of the plan or find the courage to pursue what she really wants
