Bride Book Review

Bride Book Review

Hello everyone, and welcome back to the blog! Today, I am back with a book review. I’m so pumped for this one because one of my favorite romance authors switched genres to write a Vampire/Werewolf fantasy novel. So, let’s get into it!

Ali Hazelwood has quickly become one of my favorite authors. I love her steminist romance books. I was utterly shocked when she announced a new book in a completely different genre. Nowadays you rarely see anyone shift into a new element. I always find it interesting when it does happen. But long story short, I’ve been intrigued since the announcement.

Bride follows Misery Lark, daughter of a member on the Vampyre council. Misery feels like an outcast within her own community. She prefers to live among humans even though she has to hide who she is. But things take a turn for the worst when her best friend, Serena, goes missing. Vanishes without a trace. While possibly on a brink of an interspecies war, Misery’s father decides something drastic is needed to calm the waters. Misery is then forced into a marriage to alpha Were, Lowe Moreland. The more she finds out about Lowe, the more Misery realized Lowe may be the missing puzzle piece she’s been looking for.

I was a little skeptical when reading the first 50-70 pages. I truly didn’t think I was going to like it. I felt very confused over multiple things. The further into the book I got, the more I really liked the characters. Misery’s humor and snarky comments were really the icing on the cake. The characters are enough to push you through the rest of the content.

I also really liked how her relationship with Lowe developed. I was rooting for them the entire time. I just love the overprotect alpha side of Lowe, the put-everyone-before-himself side.

The only thing I didn’t care for were the spicy scenes, especially towards the end. I thought it was weird, and it made me feel weird reading it. If you ever read the book, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. I’m not going to ruin it for everyone though.

Besides that I think for a genre change especially into fantasy it was good. It’s a nice book for those who like fantasy but don’t want to be overloaded like with an SJM book. This was very subtle, buildable for sure, and for the most part easy to follow. I would recommend to those who dabble in fantasy and those who are already a fan of Ali Hazelwood.

Alright folks, that is all I have for this week! Come back next Wednesday for another blog post! As always thank you for reading:)
