This was my second full length novel by this author and while I didn’t love it as much as I loved the first, I enjoyed it and had a great time reading these two characters’ story. ‘Becoming Mrs. Lockwood’ was a well written, sweet and sexy Hollywood romance novel, filled with drama and angst and it will be perfect for you if you are in the mood for a fairytale-esque romance story.
Wren is an eighteen years high school student from Indiana who never expects to meet someone like Weston, a good-looking man, definitely not a boy, who seems so interested in her. She’s in Vegas with her mother when she meets this Modern-Day Prince Charming, a Hollywood celebrity whom she has an undeniable chemistry. Weston is taken aback by Wren’s beauty and purity from the very first moment, so they decide to spend a full-length day together. Both of them are scared to say the least next morning, when they realize they drank too much and got married. Wren is more than surprised to find out who Weston really is – a former Hollywood actor who over the years became a notorious producer. Both of them seem to regret their decision to get married since they realize their lives are so different and there is a considerable age difference between them. However, they decide to give this new relationship a chance since both of them believe it was fate who brought them together. What comes next is a series of events who make both Wren and Weston realize that marriage is more than hard. However, they are willing to do anything to make their marriage work.
While I liked this one, I can’t say it was the “perfect” book for me. I loved the writing and Mrs. Lynn storytelling and I’m looking forward to read more of her work, but unfortunately this one was just an okay read for me. However, I have to say that I liked the premise and how the story began.
Both Wren and Weston were great developed, endearing characters. Wren was a fantastic heroine. She was genuine, smart, strong, loyal and I loved the fact that she wasn’t for one minute immature or naïve. She figures out from the very beginning her marriage with Weston will be a challenge, not only for her, but for Weston as well, but she’s determined to give their relationship an honest try. I liked how she handled some situations as the story unfolded, how she was willing to compromise in her new relationship. Weston was simply fantastic! Sure, he wasn’t perfect, but I think this was one of the reasons I liked his character as much as I did. He was a great brother and boss and with Wren was simply awesome from the moment they met. Sweet, caring, considerate, he was perfect for Wren in every way and yeah, they complemented each other perfectly. I liked how dominant and possessive he was at times and of course his sexy dirty-talking.
I really enjoyed how these two characters’ relationship progressed. Everything between them felt so real. The author did a great job with this aspect. I loved how sweet and caring they were with each other as the story unfolded and the tenderness between them at times was heart-melting. The age gap between these two didn’t bother me at all, this aspect of the story making everything being more interesting IMO. The way they came to respect, trust and love each other was really great and the passion and chemistry between them was so well done and palpable with single one of their interactions. As for the sexy times between them – OMG, so damn hot! The story is filled with lots of sexy, dirty scenes, which I totally loved.
The supporting characters were as well portrayed as the main ones. They were engaging, interesting to read about and most of them likeable.
What didn’t work for me here was the amount of drama as the story unfolded. While the angst was entertaining for me, there was too much drama for my liking. Also, the story dragged a little, the story-line becoming a little repetitive at some point.
Overall, a great read!
