Bridal Boot Camp By Meg Cabot

Looking for a tropical escape?

Welcome to Little Bridge, one of the smallest—and most beautiful—islands in the Florida Keys, home to sandy white beaches, salt-rimmed margaritas, stunning sunsets, and some of the quirkiest—but also kindest and most resourceful—people you’ll ever meet.

Physical trainer Roberta “Rob” James moved to Little Bridge hoping she’d found paradise, but things haven’t turned out quite as she’d hoped. The closest Rob has come to her “happily ever after” is happy hour at the Mermaid Café with her buddy Bree, the bartender slash waitress who’s got romance problems of her own.

But Rob’s situation suddenly changes when sheriff’s deputy Ryan Martinez accidentally enrolls in her bridal boot camp class. Turning mush into metal in time for the big day is Rob’s passion (because even the happiest bride could use a little toning).

But what happens when a guy who’s all mush meets a girl who’s all metal?

They discover they have a lot to learn . . . about each other, themselves, and the island paradise they’ve come to call home.


I pre ordered this on Amazon Kindle, not realising it’s only 50 pages long…whilst it was a reasonably fun and very quick read, I can’t help feeling like I was duped into buying what is a short erotic fiction essay rather than an intro to a rom-com series. It’s neither romantic nor comedy. It was okay and held my interest to the end, which isn’t difficult with a half hour long book, but I didn’t really like the main character much. She was pretty jealous of some dude’s (who she’d only just at that moment met) hypothetical, attractive girlfriend, she described people as crazy, nuts and psycho a bit too much and was really unpleasant about other women’s looks and weight. I don’t think I’ll be buying the next book in the series. I have a strange relationship with books by Meg Cabot, it seems that either love them (the Missing series and the Abandon series) or, like Bridal Boot Camp, they’re a bit of a miss for me.
