What happens when you’re ready to take your relationship to the engagement stage and your partner isn’t as willing as you are?
Should you wait patiently?
Should you badger him until he asks?
Should you secretly plan the wedding yourself and hope for the best?
Bride Without A Groom gives a humorous inside look at a bridezilla’s brain…..
Rebecca has chosen the most luscious, five tiered wedding cake. The engagement ring that she has selected is celebrity inspired. The wedding singer is on speed dial. He doesn’t usually do Michael Bolton, but as it’s for the first dance, he’ll make an exception. Father Maguire is checking dates for the parish church as we speak. The deposit on the white sand honeymoon is paid for in full on Barry’s card. She had fallen for an ivory lace couture gown that is to die for. The down payment may require her to sell a left kidney, but it will be worth it. Isn’t that why you have two?
There’s one teeny tiny problem. It’s nothing, really. No need to panic! It’s just that Barry has yet to propose. Says he’s not ready! He can be a bit of kill joy that way. It’s time to face the harsh reality – Rebecca is a bride without a groom!
Meet Rebecca and Barry. A couple who have been together for four years.
Becky has her sights set on being engaged by her thirtieth birthday. Although Barry is a complete pushover, he seems to be holding out on proposing. Since she has been dropping hints and snooping for years…..she thinks her birthday might finally be the night all her dreams come true. But it doesn’t happen. She doesn’t get what she’s expecting and their relationship takes a turn for the worse.
Becky is a spoiled, selfish brat of a girl who’s in desperate need of a “come to Jesus” moment. She lives in some crazy, delusional, warped sense of reality. She whines, is a borderline alcoholic, consumes way to many carbs in an attempt to eat her feelings, and spends her boyfriend’s money like it’s going out of style.
Barry is the type of man without a backbone. He basically lets Becky take advantage of him….but doesn’t bend when it comes to proposing on her timeline. It’s a little odd that he lets her be in control of everything in their lives but this.
Oy – there were times that I wanted to scream: “get a grip”!!!
I mean, do women really whine this much?
Do we create an alternate universe where everything only goes our way so that we are completely blind to the real world?
As a hopeless romantic, I was rooting for Becky to get her happily ever after. This is a true opposites attract story. What Becky and Barry lack in themselves is made up for by the other.
This story allows us to do a little soul searching within ourselves in order to see what really matters. This book is an easy read. You will find yourself laughing along the way.
