A June Bride by Marybeth Whalen

 Happily ever after guaranteed.
It takes a reality TV show for Wynne to realize love isn't just a game.
Wynne Hardy never thought she'd get engaged on a reality TV show, but when she met Andy on The Rejection Connection, the two of them hit it off. Now he's asked her to marry him, much to the public's delight and fascination. They're all set to wed on live TV in a seaside ceremony at the height of the wedding season.
But just as Wynne thinks all her dreams are coming true, her ex-boyfriend walks back into her life at the worst possible time. Steve broke her heart years ago, and she's still sorting through her feelings for him. Her heart isn't as clear as her head that it's past time to move on---even though she's engaged to Andy.
At a local TV talk show appearance, Wynne meets Meredith, who won another reality TV show---Marathon Mom---proving herself nothing short of a superhero. As Wynne's beach wedding plans spin out of control, Meredith offers to help, unknowingly stepping on Wynne's secret feelings . . . and exposing some secrets Meredith has been keeping to herself. Can these two reality stars get real about their feelings? Will Wynne go through with her televised wedding and be the perfect June bride the network is looking for?

To me, this book was amusing as well as very emotional. I enjoyed how this book has its “real life” aspects; I mean come on it’s about a dating show!
I thought that the characters were all really well written; even the secondary characters were done well. I enjoyed being able to follow along with the “after effects” of the show being over. I was left wondering what was going to happen with Wynne and Andy right from the start, and part of me was hoping for a completely different outcome of the story!
With this book, I do have one major complaint about it. When Wynne meets Meredith, it felt like Meredith took over the book. Every scene that had her in it, she was the focal point of it all. So it felt to me like Wynne just faded into the background and let Meredith have all the attention. While that does work to a degree, Meredith had a pretty big role in the story.
Overall, I do think that this was still a good story and I plan on reading future into the series in the future.
