Wow! What an emotional ride! Something Old has it all! Love, passion, deceit, bitchy bride's maids, vindictive step mothers, and high society drama. I loved the pull and connection between Ethan and Delaney. A great story about learning to trust and becoming stronger. Can't wait for the rest of the series!
Something Old is the first book in this new series. I love second chance romance stories so I was definitely intrigued by the blurb. There were so many ups and downs in this story. **3.5 Stars**
Delaney and Ethan were engaged five years ago but then scandal broke and Delaney pulled away from everyone close to her. Now she is the maid of honor for Caroline's wedding and the bride is determined to make sure all of her bridesmaids are as happy in love as she is. Her first target couple is Delaney and Ethan. When Delaney walked away, there was no closure for anyone who was hurt by her family's scandal. This story was a start for amends to be made and relationships to be repaired.
At times, I felt like I wasn't connected to Delaney at all; she was distant and standoffish. While this normally would bother me in a story, I felt like this is what Ethan must feel with her and it helped connect me more with him. This is definitely a story of how the mighty have fallen and there's always a mean girl waiting in the wings. I did find myself wishing that both Ethan and Delaney would have more trust in each other and lean on each other more but overall I really liked them. Once they had an actual conversation with each other, they really were perfect together. I'm really looking forward to what Caroline has up her sleeve for the next couple.
*This is my voluntary review of an advanced reader copy*
Megan Ryder created a romance in which the emotions roll from the beginning pages. Filled with guilt, insecurity, vanity, and a host of other emotions, Something Old holds the reader's attention. Ryder's writing's clear and easy to follow as the reader becomes involved in the lives of her characters. She gives us a look into high society, where appearance is everything; and I found it an ugly place. The story-line and plotting was very good and the pace was smooth and steady; I was surprised by the twists in the plot. All good stories have a good villain and Ryder created several for this emotional story.In concluding my review of Something Old, I found a solid story-line with well-developed characters and smooth pacing. This book may not be everyone as Something Old has strong love scenes, they are not erotic, however they are intense and hot.Additionally, I received this book from the author, choosing to voluntarily review the book/novel with an honest review for romance novel, Something Old.
