Welcome to Bliss, the bridal capital of the Midwest!
Natalie Castellano practically has it all - beauty, brains, and a stellar reputation. Because childbearing hips and exhaustion lines are totally sexy. And knowing when to let go of her family's failing bridal boutique is smart...right? Plus, who doesn't want to be that divorced mother in Bliss?
With all she has going for her, it would be selfish to secretly wish for love too. Who needs it? Definitely not Nat. But perhaps she does need to take her wedding dress-obsessed little boy somewhere else for a fresh start.
CJ Blue is on top of the world. At least, he was last week when he stood on the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. Now, he's in an empty confessional, hiding from the hullabaloo of a family wedding. a.k.a. the depths of hell.
His meddling relatives want to poke at the deep psychological wounds he supposedly bears from being a 20-something widower. But he doesn't want to talk, he doesn't want to be fussed over, and he certainly doesn't want another chance to fail at love. He just wants to get through this wedding and back to his adventurous life.
But when a dark-haired, wounded-eyed beauty invades his sanctuary and whispers a secret he was never supposed to know, he gets swept up in her life. Is he brave enough to tackle the adventure of life in Bliss, or will he walk away from the only woman in the world who could offer him love, forgiveness, and a second chance?

This book proves why Jamie Farrell is one of my favorite authors.
- Brickley J
The narrator's voice was very pleasing and Jamie Farrell's style of writing with comedy is the perfect blend of romance and the experience of the absurdity of life.
I really liked the character of Natalie and how devoted she was to her mother's dream and all of her family members including her son. I also enjoyed her interactions with the Queen General who is a force to be reckoned with.
Everything! Her voice is pleasing and easy to listen to. I especially enjoyed the way she interprets the story with the inflection of her voice. She made me giggle and kept my attention throughout the book. I would definitely buy another book that she narrates.
The Husband Games was hilarious and kept me glued to the pages as CJ battles to be the winner in the annual event so that he can win Natalie's heart, especially in front of the entire town and the Queen General.
I love Jamie Farrell's writing and she and Karen White are the perfect combination to make this a really enjoyable story and listening experience. I highly recommend this fabulous duo!
