Review: What the Bride Didn't Know by Kelly Hunter

What the Bride Didn't Know
By: Kelly Hunter
Release Date: October 22, 2013

Shh…it's a secret!

Special ops expert Trig Sinclair is a man's man, and that means he knows the cardinal rule of the bro code—no matter how dynamite Lena West is, as his best friend's younger sister, she's strictly off-limits!

But when a secret mission to Istanbul sees Lena and Trig pretending to be married (and sharing a bed!), he finds himself in a whole new world of sweet torture…. But if Trig thinks playing the honor-bound hero is tough, it's got nothing on how Lena feels when she discovers what her "groom" is really hiding….



This is definitely how I remember Harlequin books to be, sweet and adorable with a little intrigue and of course love, undeniable love. I've missed reading Harlequin romance type books, but I love this new brand they are throwing out there with the Kiss editions, I love contemporary romance, well really anything contemporary so this was definitely up my alley. 

We meet Lena as she is recovering from a botched assignment where she gets hit and she’s on a mission to find her brother who has been MIA for months.  Trig her brother’s best friend, and her babysitter decides to tag along as they go to Turkey to look for Jared.  During this trip Lena with her limited mobility and reflexes is mugged, where she happens to hit her head and lose her memory.  This is a recipe for trouble, but is it good trouble?

I don’t want to give too much away as it is a short novel, but it’s crazy when people lose their memories and start to learn new things about themselves. I think sometimes the true person comes out a little of the old and a little of the new combined to make the best person they could be.  They have both been attracted to each other for as long as they could remember but they never did act on it for one reason or another and this memory loss gives them that excuse.

Overall this book was adorable and very much what you would expect from a Harlequin Kiss novel and I thoroughly enjoyed every second of it.  On to the next one for sure.  The characters were interesting and you definitely rooted for them to succeed in their endeavors, Fun light read to get you in that kind of mood.

I received this book from NetGalley and Harlequin, so that I may give my honest opinion and a review. Whether it is good or not please do not let it discourage you from purchasing/reading the book yourself and forming your own opinion. What might be good for me may not be good for you and vice versa. With that said, Happy Reading Everyone!!!
