My Thoughts : 

This is my first Contemporary Romance by Jessica Gibson.  I really enjoyed the story line!  Our two main characters (Lorelei & Dillion) have been together for four years.  They are finally ready to move to the next step and plan their wedding when a wrench is thrown in the plans via secret Spanish wife who refuses to sign the divorce papers and get out of their lives.   I loved how this was not your typical - couple falls in love, fights and immediately makes up - all is well in the world, type story.  No, our author keeps throwing more and more at the couple and they have to actually *gasp* work things out without the sudden storybook magical dust of forgiveness.   Throw a pregnant little sister into the mix and things get even more complicated!

One of my favorite quotes in the book was " But, that's the thing about being an adult, you have to put on your big boy pants and nut up."   Ha !  I still giggled over it while typing that!   Dressed in White is filled with quirky little things that made me laugh (see quote), friendships that make you smile and lots of romance!

This was a quick read (one sitting for me!) and I can't wait to find out what happens next in Til Death Do Us Part  where we get to hear Kayla & Dane's story !  If you are looking for a modern sweet romance, I think you'll like this one!  Give it a try!


*I was given an arc in exchange for my honest review.  Due to this being an ARC, editing wasn't completely done and I had some issues with constantly proofreading the story & making edits in my head which pulled me out of  deep story mode and into work mode.  Just a quirk for me that may have affected my thoughts on the book. *

 Jessica Gibson is a recovering bookaholic, she's down from four books a week to a more reasonable one. It was that love of words and creativity that made her dream about writing her first book. That dream was hidden for years, always put on the back burner, filed away in the "someday" section, until her husband Matt gave her the kick in the pants she needed to actually get off her butt and write. Jessica and Matt live in Southern California and have a serious addiction to reality tv shows like Pawn Stars and American Restoration. They have one son and hope to add to the family in the near future.
