A July Bride by Beth Wiseman

From the publisher:
Can she forgive the man who left her at the altar?
Alyssa Pennington dated Brendan Myers for three years before she accepted his proposal. For almost a year, Alyssa's friends and family helped her plan a lovely wedding to take place in the church she'd grown up in. It was the happiest day of her life when she walked down the aisle to be united with the man of her dreams. But when Brendan left her at the altar, Alyssa was consumed by humiliation, embarrassment, and a broken heart that wouldn't allow her to trust anyone. Especially Brendan.
Brendan Myers knows he will spend the rest of his life regretting what he did to Alyssa, the only woman he's ever loved. Without her, his life is empty. In one fateful moment, he'd panicked, destroyed their future, and ruined everything. Now he plans to win her back.
But winning back his bride might prove much more difficult than he can imagine. And even if he does get her to the altar again, will she think turnabout is fair play?
I was honestly disappointed in this novella.  I felt that the story line didn't exactly make the reader root for any particular character.  Warning there are spoilers in this review because I have to explain why I was disappointed.
  Alyssa you feel bad for, but you kind of feel that she brings about her own problems especially with Dalton.  Then with Dalton, he is written that you think he is a "bad" person, but then he truly seems to love Alyssa and then he gets hurt.  Brendan and Alyssa get back together but it doesn't seems that they are really suited for each other because they weren't willing to fight for each other unless things were easily handed to them.  Overall a disappointing read.

I did really like Sherry, Alyssa's best friend and the way she handled her situation.
I was given this ebook by BookLookBloggers in exchange for my honest review.
