Review: Stealing the Groom by Sonya Weiss

Friends don’t let friends marry the wrong woman…

Chad Walker may be a take-no-chances man with a plan, but there’s no way Amelia Snyder is going to let her best bud marry Mean Girl #1—even if the wedding is solely so he can secure the controlling shares in his family’s company. But free-spirited Amelia’s at-the-altar groomnapping scheme takes a surprising turn when she ends up as the blushing bride instead. 

Suddenly, with Amelia living in her handsome husband’s home—in his bedroom, no less—she starts to reconsider their strictly platonic arrangement. But Chad’s always been anti-risk and definitely anti-love, and betting a lifetime of best friendship on the chance at forever might be the biggest gamble of all.

Laura's Review: 

There is very little in this book that is believable and it requires a heavy dose of suspension of reality to read it, but I didn't care. I loved Chad and Amelia - their friendship was so easy and they fit so well together, you couldn't help but root for them. I love Ame's sisters and the set-up for their books was pretty obvious - the chemistry with their respective love-interests was already heating up the pages! Even the meddlesome grandfathers were endearing. The major flaw in the book is that the ending was too abrupt - the best part was the end and it just was wrapped up a bit too hastily. For a romance novel, the actual relationship was rushed and I would have enjoyed watching them work out the kinks a bit more. Even so, for those who are fans of light romances without a lot of sex or angst, this is a great book.

Stealing the Groom: 3.5/5 stars

Note: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange of an honest review.
