    This is the third book in the Syndey Brides Series, The Bridesmaid s Baby Bump What a disappointment it was I had looked forward to this book because of the feelings I thought Jake had for the heroine and then he really messes up the whole thing He never redeemed himself in my opinion and I would never willingly read it again And where the heck was the groveling Our heroine and hero are Party Planner Eliza Dunne and billionaire businessman Jake Marlowe Jake is good friends with our hero This is the third book in the Syndey Brides Series, The Bridesmaid s Baby Bump What a disappointment it was I had looked forward to this book because of the feelings I thought Jake had for the heroine and then he really messes up the whole thing He never redeemed himself in my opinion and I would never willingly read it again And where the heck was the groveling Our heroine and hero are Party Planner Eliza Dunne and billionaire businessman Jake Marlowe Jake is good friends with our heroes, Dominic from book one and Crown Prince Tristan from book two He and Eliza were Bridesmaid and Best Man Groomsman at both of their weddings.Jake s wife wanted a divorce and he had tried to make it work but she was unwilling It wasn t that he loved her still, it wasabout failure and Jake didn t fail at anything It hurt his pride.He first met Eliza at Andie s wedding in book one They talk and are immediately attracted to each other Then when Tristan married Gemma in book two they reconnected but his complicated divorce had not yet been finalized Jake wanted to be with her that night but she refused no matter how badly she wanted to She told him she couldn t until his divorce was final They had such amazing chemistry and I believe they fell deeply for each other at that time His divorce was close to being finalized and he promised her he would call her and come to visit as soon as it was final She read in the papers and rag mags about his divorce being finally over and he was a free man and she waited still thinking he would call any day She gave up when it was three months post divorce, angry and heartbroken that he did not do as he promised Mad because she waited for him to call as she had promised she would and he couldn t afford her a single phone call to tell her he changed his mind.Then she ran into him at the airport and she thought it was by chance He had really set the whole thing up because he just had to see her again He was determined not to marry or have children and since he was so wealthy he took some counseling classes on how to handle himself with other women It was stressed upon in these meetings how women would hit on him because of his wealth and try and get pregnant to trap him view spoiler He was determined that he and Gemma would just have a no strings attached fling They had four marvelous days together and they parted Another three months passes, again, with not a single phone call from himwhat a complete a When they bump into one another at an event her company planned he is shocked to find out from a business associate that she is pregnant He goes to her apartment to confront her about it the next morning She quickly lets him know she wanted nothing from him No support, no settlement, no money at all She told him to just leave and forget she was ever pregnant She was going this alone She knew what he would think See, getting married and having children was always so important to Gemma but her appendix ruptured and it damaged her baby making bits so she was told she was 100% sterile Now she was having her miracle baby and she was thrilled but ready to do it on her own She loved Jake but knew she couldn t tie herself to a man who didn t love her or want the child She became quite ill the day he stopped over and he had to take her to the hospital He stayed with her then and when she was ready to be released he took her home and was going to take care of her The doctor said her condition was serious and she needed a stress free existence to heal So our brilliant NOT hero demands she marry him so his child would be legitimatized and this was the only reason he gave her for marriage It broke her heartagain She refused the proposal saying she didn t want to marry and would only consider it for love He kept bullying her to marry him, demanding might be a better word, even threatening her When she didn t accept remember how sick she is and no stress warning from dr he stood, said he was leaving then turns and says he will see her in court What the heck kind of idiot is this father to be when the mother of his child is to have no stress and is so ill She had extreme morning sickness 24 7 and was vomiting blood because a blood vessel inside of her blew from the retching Then she was unconscious and he thought she had stopped breathing The very next day when he was supposed to be taking care of her he gets angry and says all kinds of terrible things to her and walks out, leaves her alone and says he will get custody of the child Yep, just what the doctor ordered I hated him in that moment and the times when she waited month after month for him to get in touch hide spoiler This story had me going in circles and I just hated the way Jake treated Eliza and how she was basically upset throughout the book and when they were apart, before he knew she was pregnant, he was dating other women but he didn t sleep with them nor did he enjoy himself because of how he felt for Elizayet she hears nothing for three months I felt like I was on a merry go round and I wanted off quickly There was something about the number three in this book After she was with him at the second wedding when he was to call her as soon as the divorce was finalizedit took three months for the divorce to go through Then another three months before he ran into her at the airport After their four day brief affair he dated other women and it was another three months before he saw her at the party where he was told she was pregnant Then after the big fight when he was demanding she marry him she did not hear from him until the meeting with the attorneyswhich was three weeks I was just sorely disappointed I didn t care for this book and I am unable to recommend it We saw almost nothing of them actually together as a couple I would certainly not add this to my reread list Just an atrocious book

    Most H s are bullies, but really, attempting to steamroll a woman who is extremely ill during a high risk pregnancy is a deal breaker for me It just brings too much of real life into the mix, because it shows a lack of decency and sensitivity that can t be learned What kind of person sees someone he cares for gaunt and ill and recently out of the hospital and decides that it s the perfect time to sue her for custody A man like that will always use her weakness to get his way for the rest of t Most H s are bullies, but really, attempting to steamroll a woman who is extremely ill during a high risk pregnancy is a deal breaker for me It just brings too much of real life into the mix, because it shows a lack of decency and sensitivity that can t be learned What kind of person sees someone he cares for gaunt and ill and recently out of the hospital and decides that it s the perfect time to sue her for custody A man like that will always use her weakness to get his way for the rest of their lives together, no matter how nice is he is when he wins his most recent battle

    I was really looking forward to this one I have loved the first two books in this series and I was very much looking forward to seeing Eliza get her HEA and with none other than billionaire Jake Marlowe you see they were best man and bridesmaid at Andie and Dominic s wedding and then again at Gemma and Tristian s weddings and that spark that started with the first wedding grew with the second one and bought them together in the magical European castle such a fairy tale but there were still obsta I was really looking forward to this one I have loved the first two books in this series and I was very much looking forward to seeing Eliza get her HEA and with none other than billionaire Jake Marlowe you see they were best man and bridesmaid at Andie and Dominic s wedding and then again at Gemma and Tristian s weddings and that spark that started with the first wedding grew with the second one and bought them together in the magical European castle such a fairy tale but there were still obstacles in their way so it took another 6 months before they were in contact again and wow.Eliza is part of the Party Queens party planning company and loves her job she has been married and divorced and is one of the most independent and determined to do everything herself people there is she will not be told what to do and can be very stubborn about it Eliza is not the sort of girl who is into affairs but she cannot deny the pull between her and Jake so when she decides to take a much needed four day break at Port Douglas Jake is the last person she expects to run into at the airport but that spark cannot be denied.Jake Marlowe is a self made billionaire gorgeous and caring but he also has secrets from his past and has just come through a divorce and with a rule book to guide him although another marriage and fatherhood is something that is not in his future, he decides it is time to get back to living and seeing as Eliza is someone he cannot forget the time is right for them to meet again where will this lead Four wonderful sensual days together with consequences that neither of them thought could happen.Truly this is one moving sensual emotional story that I did not want to put down MS Shepherd knows how to write a story that will pull you in and have you turning those pages The setting is fabulous and that glimmer that has been glowing between Jake and Eliza for some time now explodes with emotions that will see stubbornness and determination and then the pure joy of opening up and realizing that they are very much in love with a baby on the way Thank you MS Shepherd for another fabulous story

    I m a huge fan of Kandy Shepherd s books While I have to admit that her Dolphin Bay series is my favourite so far, I completely fell in love with the Sydney Brides series too What s not to love about three sassy, intelligent and determined women who call themselves the Party Queens and are destined to meet the love of their lives under the most unusual circumstances After Gift Wrapped in Her Wedding Dress and Crown Prince s Chosen Bride , The Bridesmaid s Baby Bump is the 3rd and last in I m a huge fan of Kandy Shepherd s books While I have to admit that her Dolphin Bay series is my favourite so far, I completely fell in love with the Sydney Brides series too What s not to love about three sassy, intelligent and determined women who call themselves the Party Queens and are destined to meet the love of their lives under the most unusual circumstances After Gift Wrapped in Her Wedding Dress and Crown Prince s Chosen Bride , The Bridesmaid s Baby Bump is the 3rd and last instalment, and it lived up to my expectations.This is the story of Eliza, the organizing whirlwind behind the party planner trio She bumped pardon the pun into hunky billionaire Jake on two occasions two weddings nonetheless, now if that isn t an omen and sparks flew The problem Jake was battling a divorce, and Eliza has been burned by her own unhappy marriage But this time when they meet, all bets are off The two of them give in to desire during a short holiday, and it was a treat to read how well they got along and how much chemistry andthey shared The title sort of gives away the story, but that didn t take anything away from the suspense and struggle It s no lie to say I was biting my nails at one point, and shouting at Eliza and then Jake and then again Eliza to stop being so blind and stubborn But they got their happy ending, and it felt so wonderfully right.It was nice to meet the previous characters and be whisked away to exotic settings, and the love story itself will remain in my mind and heart for quite a while Jake sounded wonderful, just the right mix of mysterious, dashing, strong and sometimes infuriating And Eliza holds her own against the other two party queens, who feel like friends to me by now

    Been waiting for this book after previewing the sample on Harlequin website and iBooks, the suspense was killing meIt was pretty difficult at first to digest what had happened between Jake and Eliza leading to their first time meeting at Dominic and Andie s wedding and then at Gemma and Tristan s wedding before Jake s divorce become final.I would act like Eliza did when meeting Jake by accident at the airport, mad at him but somehow did not have the heart to do it because Jake is so handsome, Been waiting for this book after previewing the sample on Harlequin website and iBooks, the suspense was killing meIt was pretty difficult at first to digest what had happened between Jake and Eliza leading to their first time meeting at Dominic and Andie s wedding and then at Gemma and Tristan s wedding before Jake s divorce become final.I would act like Eliza did when meeting Jake by accident at the airport, mad at him but somehow did not have the heart to do it because Jake is so handsome, so sincere and kind.And love how author added my birth country, Indonesia into the book, since the author has done it on the previous book at the island of Bali
