3.5 stars This was a cute holiday read featuring an innocent heroine and a bad boy hero I enjoyed and liked it but I didn t love it And for anyone who knows me, this is the kind of books I tend to love Unfortunately, this was just an okay read for me Molly Anderson had been in love with Dylan Black ever since her older sister introduced him to their family But Dylan Black only had eyes for her sister and Molly was content to fade into the background and suffer silently from her unrequited love f [...]

I promised myself no regrets, she whispered into the darkness No what ifs, no second guessing I promised myself that I was going to live my life, instead of always taking the safe route Rounding out my Christmas 2015 reading list, I recently finished The Christmas Wedding Ring by Susan Mallery It was a sweet holiday story that had a nice message of being happy with who you are, making the most of every day and living with no regrets Overall I enjoyed the story, I had a few gripes which I ll get [...]

I read this story as my 1998 published book for my A Lifetime of Books Challenge I absolutely adore the work of Ms Mallery, especially the Fool s Gold Series As much as I enjoyed this story, I can tell that it was an early work of hers, originally published as The Wedding Ring Promise The writing style is a little less refined, as compared to other, recent, endeavors I really like the fact that the heroine in this book is from Mischief Bay, where Ms Mallery s latest series of books takes place [...]
This was such a cute Christmas read I love Susan Mallery s books and this one was so good Loved Dylan like crazy I suggest this book for an easy and fun Christmas read
Predictable but a cute story.
3,5 Carino, nella sua semplicit.Un soft romance, dove la dolcezza la fa da padrona.E tuttavia molto belle le pagine dove l uomo tutto d un pezzo si dimostra capace di empatia e tenerezza molto rare.Una lettura adatta per chi ha voglia di sognare e crearsi un po di energia positiva.
I can t believe I read another one you guys I m done.
Molly Anderson was 12 when she first laid eyes on Dylan Black her older sister s boyfriend She had always been the outcast in her family but Dylan never reacted to her that way.He always took an interest in everything she was doing, her school, or her ideas At 18 he was by far the most handsome guy you ever saw Unlike all her other boyfriends he would talk to Molly He would tell her jokes, tease her about silly things but never in a mean hurtful way like her own family Since Janet saw no future [...]
Ich bin bereits seit Jahren begeisterte Leserin von Susan Mallerys Werken Zuletzt ist diese Leidenschaft leider viel zu kurz gekommen, sodass dies nun wieder dringend nachgeholt werden muss Auf der Suche nach neueren Werken von der Autorin ist mir besonders Pleiten, Pech und Prinzen aufgefallen, sodass ich diesem Buch unbedingt eine Chance geben wollte und ich bin froh, dass ich es getan habe, denn es ist wunderbar.Susan Mallery besitzt seit jeher einen sehr angenehmen Schreibstil, den ich bei i [...]
It pains me to write unfavorable reviews for books written by favorite authors, and Susan Mallery is definitely one of my favorites But as painful as it is for me to write this, it was just as painful to read it.I must state that yes, I knew this is a re publish of a much earlier work I was expecting the book to have less polish than her newer ones, I like it when authors re release oldies that I missed the first time around I wasn t expecting a literary masterpiece I was expecting a harlequin t [...]
The Christmas Wedding Ring is a very prettily packaged re issue of author Susan Mallery s 1998 release The Wedding Ring Promise It took me a while to get into the groove of this story line and to find the appeal of the characters I am a longtime Susan Mallery fan so I kept reading As the hero and heroine got reacquainted with one another and they grew on each other, they began to also grow on me As a teenager, Molly Anderson was hopelessly infatuated with her older sister Janet s boyfriend Dylan [...]

What a complex and captivating novel Mallery had me hooked throughout Her easy flowing writing takes you through this intense tale that touches on so many aspects of life Although this story is very realistic and extremely plausible, Mallery s imagination and gift as a storyteller had me hooked The premise behind this story is not only unique but extremely brave and intriguing I was completely invested in this story by the end At times this novel is physically and emotionally frightening it coul [...]

This was delightful Sweet, full of tension, laugh out loud moments and times when I was saying seriously Get a clue You know the happy ending is ahead, but this story really drew out that will they or won t they conclusion It featured a main characters in the real world a woman who was curvy and insecure that she wasn t a willowy, slender girl like her sister And a guy who grew up abused and neglected, then made his fortune with his own company and still fights the demons of insecurity Mallery i [...]
A Susan Mallery book that isn t set in Fool s Gold No shoehorning every ex hero heroine into the book by hook or by crook hee, I rhymed If this story had had better protection worked in and allowed it , it would ve rated a four and a half.Molly fell in love Dylan when he was dating her older sister He was the bad boy who left when her sister married someone else As he was heading out of town, he gave her the wedding ring he had bought, and promised that, when she grew up, they could have a grand [...]

The Christmas Wedding Ring by Susan Mallery was a cute holiday story featuring a slow burning romance between an innocent heroine and a bad boy hero The two main characters of the story, Molly and Dylan, who have known each other since the days of when Dylan was dating Molly s older sister in high school Young Molly developed a bit of crush on the older bad boy and held on to every second that she and Dylan spent together Eventually, Dylan and Molly s sister broke up and Dylan left town but he a [...]
Although there were aspects of this book I liked very much, as a whole it fell short for me Or, in another sense, I could just as truthfully say it fell long Perhaps it s because I don t normally read category romance novels, but I found the constant, repetitive introspection irritating Every time you turned around, the girl or the guy was launching into another internal monologue about how inadequate s he feels and how the other could not possibly care for him her, ignoring mounting evidence to [...]
AJ s Review I never read Susan Mallery s The Wedding Ring Promise, but I truly enjoyed getting to know Molly and Dylan One of my favorite tropes is friends to lovers with a twisthe was her sister s boyfriend There s nothing like a bad boy who for intent and purpose, is really not bad Just came from the wrong side of the tracks whatever that is and figured out how to survive Read More ravensreviews p
