Tera’s 3.5 Blush Review
I adore Meghan Quinn, and she’s always a go-to author for me! She’s my queen of rom-com! While Runaway Groomsman had great characters, it fell a little short for me than Quinn’s typical stories.
What I liked:
The small-town vibes. Canoodle had all the charm to love in a typical small-town romance.
The characters. I really like Sawyer (hero), but I adored the secondary characters. The fiery best friend, Jaz, the lovable grandfather, Sully, and the reliable younger brother, Roarick were fabulous. They added so much to the story.
What didn’t quite work:
The pace. It was painfully slow for me but weirdly written well enough that I still wanted to power through and see how it would end.
The heroine. While I didn’t hate Fallon by any means, she just left a lot to be desired. This story is an incredibly slow burn, and Sawyer pining so sweetly for Fallon was great, but Fallon was like a switch. She just went from being cool with Sawyer to being in love with him immediately and then was frustrated by him wanting to take things slow.
Overall, this is still an enjoyable read. I think Ms. Quinn has executed a slow burn so much better in the past.
About RUNAWAY GROOMSMAN:
Hollywood screenwriter Sawyer Walsh knows a good love story when he sees it. But when it comes to real life romance, he’s a mess. That’s how he finds himself standing at the altar…as his ex-girlfriend ties the knot with his very famous best friend. The pressure, the resentment, the media coverage—it’s all too much—and before he knows exactly what he’s doing, he’s making a run for it, leaving a shocked congregation and flashing cameras in his wake.
Needing to lie low amid the media fallout, Sawyer lands in the charming town of Canoodle, California, where he crosses paths with Fallon Long, who runs the Canoodle Cove Cabins, a family-owned business and Sawyer’s new short-term residence. Overwhelmed with renovations and her long list of responsibilities, Fallon is struggling to make ends meet while attempting to bring the cabins back to their original glory. So when Sawyer arrives, she is grateful for the income, but immediately writes him off as just another vapid Hollywood hack, until he begins to prove her wrong at every turn.
As Fallon comes closer to saving the family business, an undeniable bond forms between her and the handsome screenwriter. But the pressures of her family obligations and Sawyer’s notoriety might prove to be too much for anyone to handle. Could Canoodle be the setting for a new romance—or is true love just a Hollywood cliché?
