Lorelei Peters had everything she had ever dreamed of. Amazing friends, a sexy boyfriend, and a job that she absolutely loved. Dillon Brockwell was all she had ever wanted. Handsome, successful, and he loved her as much as she loved him. Life was going along the way it was supposed to, until someone from Dillon’s past shows up and shatters everything to pieces. Can Lorelei and Dillon get through all the craziness and make it down the aisle? Or will lies of omission be enough to derail them forever.
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. *
