Blog tour + Review: Runaway Groom by Lauren Layne

“Lauren Layne gets the red rose for this one, and fans of The Bachelor will fall in love with this thoroughly charming story.”Kate O’Keeffe, bestselling author

I Do, I Don't - Book 2
Lauren Layne
Releasing Jan 30, 2018

For one charming playboy, getting cast on a Bachelor-esque reality TV show is the shock of a lifetime—until he finds love where he least expects it.

Gage Barrett’s reputation as a ladies’ man has been greatly exaggerated, but none of that matters after a drunken bet lands him on Jilted, a reality TV show that matches runaway grooms with wannabe brides. Now he’s stuck at a Hawaiian resort with nineteen women competing to drag him back to the altar—and one contestant who’s even more miserable than he is. Gage has no idea how feisty, independent Ellie Wright wound up in the cast, but it’s obvious she hates his guts. And if there’s one thing Gage likes, it’s a challenge. . . .

Ellie can’t believe she let her best friend talk her into exchanging her dignity for a glorified bikini contest. Still, she could use the exposure—her business is struggling—and she’ll probably be one of the first to get eliminated anyway. But Gage isn’t the shallow jerk Ellie anticipated—and he’s in no rush to send her home. As stolen kisses turn into secret trysts, she finds herself losing track of what’s real and what’s for the camera. With the wedding finale looming, this runaway groom is tempting Ellie to start believing in storybook endings.

OMG OMG OMG! This book was perfect!
It gave me all the feels <3 <3

Lauren Layne once again hits the jackpot with “Runaway Groom”.
Just think that I read the book in 3 hours, and instead of studying I just lost myself completely in the story of Ellie and Gage <3

First of all, I need to say that I loved both Gage and Ellie. They were perfectly described, at 360°. They were two person with quite different life goals and life styles, but when your true love call, what do you have to do? Accept it, find a solution and live happily ever after.

The concept behind this book was great, really interesting and so much fun to read! Ellie is one of the 20 contestant in this reality show, where the goal is to capture the attention of Gage (the runaway groom) and bring him to the altar.
For sure Ellie wasn’t keen on playing the part, meaning that she had no intention to stay on the show, but only wanted to get home!
But for one reason or another, she was forced to stay and play along….

I loved Ellie and Gage as a couple from the first time they met, and fell in love more and more reading about their stolen and forbidden meetings and stolen looks.
The attraction between them grew day by day, and the way the story ended was perfect.

The parts about the ceremony days and the following messages were hilarious and awesome! I had so much fun reading them:P And even more the last exchanges between Ellie and Gage… top!

And last but not least, OMG, the other contestants were out of the world crazy! Well, except for Paisley and Brooklyn, but the others! The perfect women to make a reality show interesting!

So yeah, we can say that I loved this book. Lauren Layne has a writing style that just catches my attention and keep it until I finish the book. I think she could make even a grocery store list interesting for me :P

I’m kidding, but yes, everyone, read this book, and fall in love with Ellie, Gage and the amazing Lauren Layne.
