KIRKUS REVIEW

A contestant on a dating show falls for the producer, but does either know what they are getting into?

This is the first in Jackson’s (Holiday Temptation, 2016, etc.) three-book contemporary romance series about unconventional brides. Eva Ward wins a lavish wedding in a contest, but when her fiance jilts her on-air, cameraman Aidan Walker shows no sympathy in recording her every outraged reaction. To save face and maintain her carefully crafted life plan of being married before 30, with a first child before 33, Eva agrees to star in a Bachelor-style reality contest, hoping to find Mr. Right and get that wedding of her dreams. Aidan is Eva’s new producer, and although she wants to stay mad at his manipulations, she’s undeniably attracted to him. Aidan is normally a “leap first and look later” type of guy, but he wants to make the most of his chance at the helm of the show. Another reason for caution, despite his raging attraction? He cares about Eva, and he has some serious conflicts of interest. The backdrop of a reality TV show enhances interest, and the trust issues are well-played. Jackson brings nothing new to the tropes of "no-strings sex" and "won't be vulnerable again." The sex is mostly off the page, but it doesn’t convey sizzling chemistry between Aidan and Eva, and Aidan’s confession and the couple's reconciliation come too late in the game.

A fun concept with an unconvincing romance, this might have made a better women’s fiction outing.
