INTOXICATED BY MONICA MURPHY- A BOOK REVIEW
Intoxicated by Monica Murphy
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Intoxicated by Monica Murphy - A Billionaire Bachelor Club novella is a 2014 Avon Impulse publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.
This novella touches base with Gage and Marina on their wedding day. Marina has evidently turned into a bit of a bridezilla, and when she finds out her sister Ivy has gone into labor she's not happy. Ivy feels guilty about missing the wedding but soon she has other things to worry about once the labor continues for much longer than she thought it would and Bryn is in a little bit of a panic over how serious her relationship with Matt has become.
There is a lot going on in this very short story and not a lot of time to enjoy the major life events for Ivy and Marina. The wedding goes by in a blur, Ivy's labor is very difficult, and Bryn and Matt are still in that intense stage of the relationship where fear of the magnitude of the relationship has Bryn running for cover. I like all these characters even though Marina was a little off her game. I think this book was just a little bit of tidying up and so it's not fleshed out as much as I would have liked. All the same, for a lunch time or break time read it's enjoyable enough. This one gets 3 stars.
