about

**"This story is everything I love about romantic comedy!" - ***USA Today Bestselling Author Kylie Gilmore *

An out-of-place single mother and a thrill-seeking widower collide in the Wedding Capital of the Midwest!

Natalie Castellano didn't have the wedded bliss experience typical of her hometown, but that won't stop her from ensuring this year's bridal festival goes off without a hitch. Even if it means she has to play nice with the man who broke her fairy tale.

World adventurer and reluctant local hero CJ Blue doesn't want to be in Bliss anymore than Natalie wants him here. But family obligations have brought him back, and now, Natalie is using every trick she has to rope him into helping save a tradition he'd rather forget.

Despite their rocky past, these two wounded souls have more in common than they expect. They've both loved and lost, they've both tried to move on, and now they've both locked up their hearts. But by joining forces for the sake of Bliss, they might find the courage to risk love one more time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quirky characters Natalie a is divorced mother who lives in a town called Bliss. This little town's claim to fame is that it has the title of the "Most Married-est Town on Earth". Her father wants her to run the bridal store that had been so important to his wife so she agrees even though business is slow and being divorced she's not well thought of in that town. The woman known as Queen General chairs all the bridal activities and makes sure the town keeps its title. Everyone is basically afraid of her and does everything they can to stay out of her way. CJ is the reason Natalie's marriage ended so when he comes back to town for a wedding she avoids him. But he's back just when the annual husband games are on. He was a former winner of The Husband Games and is pressured to participate in them again. Even though he didn't want to enter he does just to make everyone else happy. This threw him and Natalie together often and sparks flew. This was an enjoyable story with quirky characters. I expected this story to be more of a romance since it's set in a bridal town. It was a romance but not a light read. The characters were crazy! Especially Queen General. She was someone you had to dislike. Natalie was so smart and capable but thought so poorly of herself that I couldn't like her. CJ's family, especially his sisters were very likeable and fun. The ending was good and left me in tears. Happy ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, fun read!! I really loved this story. The quirky dialogue and sometimes funny and serious natures of the plot make for a great read. I had so much fun reading this and couldn't wait to see what pranks were thrown back and forth. The Self discovery Natalie has in learning to stand up for herself and what she believes in was great to see. And CJ growing and facing his problems instead of running from them was special to see. Lots of laugh out loud moments and I loved every one of them!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing romance of love, laughter, tears Wow, what an emotional roller coaster. It probably didn't help that I read this on Mother's Day and I lost my Mother 12 years ago. Natalie is struggling with the loss of her Mom, it's been 6 months and she is trying to carry on in her footsteps, fulfilling her Mom's last project. The Golden Husband Games for Bliss. Of course, Natalie hasn't had an easy road. She is a divorcee in the "Most Married-est Town" so the Queen General makes it her mission to make her life miserable, ensuring she feels like an outcast. The hard part is that all Natalie has ever dreamed about doing is following her in Mother's footsteps as Chair of the Husband Games committee so this just leads Natalie to feeling like a complete an utter failure. CJ Blue is a past winner of the Husband Games and is now a revered widower after his wife died serving in the Air Force. Sadly, CJ is lost, seeking crazy adventures around the world trying to bury his guilt for the struggles in his marriage, he feels responsible for Serena going to war and losing her life. CJ and Natalie had a moment at that infamous Husband Games 5 years ago and it became the final straw sending her husband away for good. When they cross paths again, Natalie just sees CJ as the destroyer of his marriage. CJ finds a strong, independent, courageous woman that scares the crap out of him. This road they go down to find themselves and maybe a relationship is rocky, bumpy and charming. Factor in 4 year old Noah, Natalie's son and scene stealer, well, and I don't know how anyone would be able to resist. Along the way we meet a strong cast of characters that are there to support Natalie and CJ giving this story amazing depth. I truly enjoyed my afternoon buried in The Husband Games and am still shocked that a mother would name all 13 children after spices. Crazy!
