ARC Review: The Backup Bride Proposal by Jaci Burton

Bellini Weddings has agreed to allow a production company to film a movie at Red Moss Vineyards. It will be great PR for both the vineyard and the wine and wedding businesses. Mae Wallace, who works for the Bellini family, is thrilled with the possibility of new business. What she isn’t thrilled with is actor Kane August, who she finds crashing one of the weddings. He tells her it’s research for the movie, but she finds him overconfident and annoying.

Kane August is rarely surprised by anything—until he meets Mae Wallace. She’s sharp, just a bit on the snarky side, and the most refreshing woman he’s had the pleasure of meeting. She constantly challenges him, and he can’t remember having this much fun on a movie set. He takes every opportunity to spend time with her, peeling back layers until he gets to the heart of who this amazing person really is. And, unexpectedly, he realizes that he’s letting her in, too, something he hasn’t done with anyone before. However, they live very different lives and he’ll need to be careful around Mae, because she’s someone he could see a future with. But can she see the same thing?

When Kane takes her to his family’s ranch in Texas, Mae discovers a whole new side to him, learning about the heart and soul of a kind and gentle man. And as they grow closer, her guard goes up. Once burned, she has no intention of falling in love ever again, despite this very hot and sexy guy who’s trying his best to turn her world upside down and work his way through the steely wall she’s built. Kane is determined to show her he’s the one man she can trust with her heart. If only Mae will allow herself to fall.
This one made me both happy and sad. This is the last book in the Boots and Bouquets series. I will miss it. I really enjoyed The Backup Bride Proposal. I'm not always into books where the hero or heroine are either actors or musicians. I'll read them they just aren't my favorites. I'm happy to say that I really enjoyed this one. 

I really enjoyed the idea of this storyline. The idea of being a stand in for an actor is something I'm not sure I could do it. I'd be a nervous wreck, but Mae handled it perfectly. I really enjoyed Mae. She's a bit sad of a person but she also loves her life too. I think she's like the rest of us. Sometimes all is well and other times we are reminded of the sad moment in our past. 

Not only did I really like Mae I have to say as a hero Kane is a great one. He's very down to earth and relatable. I love how much he cared about his family. You often forget that he's there because he's an actor. 

Both Mae and Kane work well together. You'll enjoy the times that they spend together. The little moments are what make this story. I liked when they went to spend the holiday with Kane's family. His family are great, and they were very nice to Mae and brought her into their family.

They had a few bumps in the road but were able to work them out nicely. The Backup Bride Proposal is a well-written story that I really enjoyed. It wrapped up the series very nicely.
