Wyoming Wildflowers: Indian Paintbrush

Dave Currick was everything Matty Brennan wanted for as along as she could remember. Right up until he broke her heart six years ago. Now that she’s returned to Wyoming for good, what she wants more than anything is to save her family’s ranch. Even if that means swallowing her pride and asking Dave to marry her.

Matty’s up to something – Dave knows that much. Just as he knows that Matty needs help, so of course he’ll provide it, just as he has all her life. Doing what’s best for Matty is second nature. Even when it comes to marrying her in name only. Although he can’t resist one hot-blooded kiss after the I-dos. Maybe – just maybe – his Matty will become more to him than Almost a Bride.

My Thoughts

I like reading about happy endings with difficult journeys (like sorting out misunderstandings etc.) and this is what Almost a Bride is about. I loved Matty and Dave's journey towards their happy ending.

Matty loves her home Flying W very much which now after her great uncle's death is trapped under a huge load of financial problems and Matty would do anything to save it and that includes contract marriage with Dave.

Matty and Dave were childhood friends turned lovers. She has always loved him and he is still in love with her, still they broke up 6 years ago and have been apart since then. Within three days of their meeting they are married, the twist is that for Matty its purely business to save Flying W and for Dave its real.
Now living under same roof gives them time together and a chance to ask what happened 6 years ago? If they are still in love with each other then why are
 they not together? They finally share their fears and together plan to save Flying W in their own way.
I liked Matty and Dave a lot and the chemistry between them is awesome (hot). And that ending was superb, I loved it.

The story was overall good but it had a lot of potential to be an awesome one. There were lot of intimate scenes, not those clean romances- so I recommend readers  16+ of age- the author could have show more depth towards their relationship. 

Overall, it's a pretty decent read with a nice story which will take you towards the beautiful ending. I am definitely looking forward to read other books in the series. :)

I give this 3.5 out of 5.
