Goodreads:  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?

Kritters Thoughts:  Wynne Hardy did a reality show after a horrible break up and she has found her match.  Her wedding is upcoming and this is where the book starts.  Wynne and Andy have the final preparations for the wedding to do and of course with any wedding there will be a bit of drama!

This novella reminded me that I do love reading short stories and novellas.  The reader knows that a lot of action has taken place before this part of the story starts, but you are just getting a glimpse into the full story.  Unlike the previous novella I read in this collection where all the action took place in such a short amount of time, things felt rushed.  

I had read one book by Marybeth Whalen before I started this one and enjoyed that one.  It was published after this one, so it was interesting to think about that book compared to this novella.  I liked this one in the collection.  It gave me hope to read more, we shall see if I keep up reading them month to month.  
Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
