Book Review The Reluctant Groom by Kimberly Rose Johnson

The Reluctant Groom by Kimberly Rose Johnson
1 March 2018

When everything goes wrong, can two friends discover true love?

When Ray O’Brien’s world is turned upside down, Katie Fairchild wants to help, but the personal cost is high. Neither desires a marriage of convenience, but when Katie blurts the first thing that comes to her mind Ray can’t dismiss her offer of marriage. It would solve all his problems except for one thing—they aren’t in love.

Can these two friends team up for the greater good and perhaps find love along the way, or are their expectations impossible?


The Reluctant Groom is a delightful book I enjoyed reading. It kept my attention, the characters were unique but great and this made the book more enjoyable. The author wrote a well-written book that I encourage others to read. I highly recommend this book.The Reluctant Groom by Author Kimberly Rose Johnson is Book One of the Brides of Seattle series.

I received a copy from the publisher, but was not required to review it. This review is one hundred percent my opinion.

  1. Hi Barbara, I love Kimberly’s books and I have this one on pre-order. I’m looking forward to reading it because it’s set in Seattle, one of my favourite US cities, and is a modern day marriage of convenience story that isn’t connected to royalty (the more common trope). Thanks for sharing your review with us. :)

    1. Thanks for pre-ordering it, Narelle. I hope you enjoy it and it surpasses your expectations.
