He'd always bet on her, always...

Lark March is over Mason Stewart, so over him she's practically forgotten the cruel way he ended things four years ago. At least that's what she's told her sisters... But when Mason shows up at her best friend's wedding, talking sweet and looking even sweeter, Lark can't deny the man still gets to her in a major way.

Mason Stewart was a messed up kid, but he's a man now, a man who knows what he wants and won't stop until he's convinced the only woman he's ever loved that they are meant to be. He persuades Lark to give him seven days to remind her why they belong together. At the week's end, Lark may tell him to get out of her life for good, but Mason's betting on true love for the win.

But when old secrets come to light, Lark and Mason will find their rediscovered love tested, and happily ever after harder to hold on to than either of them wagered.

Fans of Bella Andre, Kristan Higgins, and Susan Mallery will love the Always a Bridesmaid romance series, stories featuring sassy Southern women and the alpha males who love them.

My Review

I've had this book for a while on my Kindle, and I'm making a conscious effort to read books that have been on my TBR pile for quite some time. I'm actually not doing too bad, which is nice for a change! I'm sure with Christmas, that will change with the new books I'm hoping to get, but at least I'm working on it! 

I started out liking this book a lot. It seemed like it was going to be just what I was looking for. I think this book had a lot of potential, but it fell a little short for me. I would say Mason and Lark had a bad breakup, but there wasn't much to it since Mason just left. But when they see each other again for the first time in 4 years, I was expecting the reunion to be more emotional. Yes, Lark fled, but she gave in quite easily to Mason asking her out for 7 dates right away. Just seemed too fast for me and I would have liked to see her stick her ground a little longer. 

That being said, I did enjoy the book. It wasn't a top pick for me, and I'm not sure if I'll finish the series, but I'm glad I tried this and gave the author a chance. I have to say that Aria and Nash's story sounds really good too! Just not sure if I'll grab a copy or not. 


  1. Aww this sounds pretty cute and sometimes I NEED those type of books haha. I usually don't like when a character moves on too quickly but I can look it over if I enjoyed the book. Hope this will be one of those cases.
    Great review! :)

    1. I agree! Sometimes after so many heavy and emotional books, I need something light and easy! I was able to overlook the moving on quickly for the most part, so you should be able to as well :)
