Wedding fever has hit the little town of Marietta...
Soap opera star Nancy Parsons is madly in love with Hollywood’s favorite leading man, and they’re getting married on her parents’ stunning horse ranch just outside Marietta, Montana. Actors, athletes, and politicians will be there to watch Hollywood’s most extravagant couple say I do.
There’s just one problem. The bride’s childhood friend Wyatt Wilder knows Nancy’s making the biggest mistake of her life. Sure, Jared’s got looks, money, fame, and—it seems—Nancy’s heart. But when her bridesmaids hire him to lead them on a girls’-only adventure, Wyatt has two nights in the wilderness along the Yellowstone River to show her what a real man looks and acts like. A rugged, tough, loving man.
But will he be able to do it before she says “I do” to the wrong man?
What a grand finale for the series, I am still gasping for a breath.. wow. Through the series, there are glimpses of this celebrity wedding, and now we finally have the story, and it is nothing like I expected, oh, it is so much more.
First, what a respectable way, and tone, the author has written about an abusive relationship. The way it is described escalating incident after incident. The control and jealousy, the checking up on her every moment and move, and slowly taking over her life in every aspect, was eye opening and chilling.
Wyatt and Nancy have so much history, after all, they basically grew up together. As they reflect and share the childhood memories, there is so much pain, hurt, and shame, but also pride, respect, comfort and joy. Their journey has not been an easy one, the things Nancy has gone through, my respect towards her grew with every page. Wyatt has such a big heart, he is protective, kind, affectionate, wants to fix things. Oh, he comes off at first as a grumpy and surly, but that is just the protective shell in him.
This story just took my breath away, and captured my mind. I read it at one sitting, and wanted it to just go on. Wyatt and Nancy are so perfect for each other, not perfect people, but they fit so well together. They listen to each other, support each other, through some really tough times, and are always willing to help each other where needed. The story is on the edge, with the relationship with Jared, the consequences of ending it, and unforgettable wilderness trip in the gorgeous scenery of the Yellowstone, with the childhood memories and experiences, and the relationship with Wyatt, all together it makes a wonderful, heartbreaking love story, that tops, and finishes, the lovely wedding series in Marietta
