Review Wednesday: 'Bloom'

Welcome to Review Wednesday!! Ever wonder what happens when the story is over and the wedding has yet to happen? Today I have Jasmine Aherne's sweet story Bloom.
Bloom by Jasmine Aherne - Click Image to CloseMari Dawson, Dr. Noah Campbell, and Aimee return in this sweet story about the months leading up to the Big Day--Mari and Noah's wedding. The excitement is in the air and romance can be felt all around them. But Aimee is crushed by her first teenage love and Mari still hasn't told her parents about the engagement.

Will the trip down the aisle be a disaster from Mari's lack of wedding planning skills and Noah demanding work schedule? Or, will the two have their day?

You'll find out if their love will Bloom and make the special day a beautiful lifetime memory.
Warning: m/f sexual situation 

It never ceases to amaze me how some authors can pack so much into so little pages. But that's just what Jasmine Aherne did. While the characters were familiar from the first novel, Uprooted, they developed nicely in this short. Aimee, the teenager, is as real as it gets when her heart is broken. Mari, who's so careful with love and relationships, shows her venerability and responds as any loving mother figure, would. Plus, Noah was a delight whenever his thoughts wondered to his future wife.

Thank you Ms. Aherne. It's hard enough to write great stories, but when an author goes the extra mile and follows it up with a closing tale, it eases the romantic mind! Congratulations on Five Blue Roses! This short was so sweet. :)
