    I can't imagine the pressure of fame and fortune, especially when people seem to "use" you for them. Both Cassie and Luke have had their fair share of heartaches, successes, and disappointments and they each have to learn to forgive and move on, which is much easier said than done. I enjoyed the journey of them growing from their situations. Luke has thrown his fame to the wind after being betrayed, but instead of being completely bitter, he's done a lot of good with his time and talents and I lo I can't imagine the pressure of fame and fortune, especially when people seem to "use" you for them.

I enjoyed the journey of them growing from their situations. Luke has thrown his fame to the wind after being betrayed, but instead of being completely bitter, he's done a lot of good with his time and talents and I loved seeing the interest and investment he has with his project. Cassie has been all but abandoned by her father, who is now trying to get back into her life. The pressure of writing the next great album doesn't get her down, as she tries to find ways to help herself, instead of waiting around to be helped. I love a romance with some meat to it and this isn't a fluffy insta-love story. The struggles are real and the love is gradual. I love how the romance is mixed with music and the relationships with this group of troubled teens, which combined, puts some cracks in the emotional walls. There is a minuscule thread of mystery, which adds to the tension and makes for an overall well-balanced diet of words. Content: mild romance *I received a complimentary copy through the tour host, which did not affect my opinion in any way.*

    This is a cute and sweet story. The characters have both had a lot of heartache and suffer trust issues. The story is one of forgiveness and learning to love again.

The romance is sweet. It is not too intense and not instant love. The characters are cautious and get to know each other before expressing feelings of devotion, or kissing. I loved the pacing of the story, most of the characters, and the compassion shown. This is a wonderful book to pick up for the summer, sit on the porch, go to the beach, camping, or picnic. However you like to relax and and enjoy a book. :) Source: I received a complimentary copy of the book from the author. This is my honest review, I was not required to leave a positive review.

Cassie is an active musician stuck in a bit of a rut and Luke is a hiding musician, once famous for his songwriting abilities. Both Cassie and Luke are struggling just in different ways. I loved Cassie's generous nature. She genuinely wants to help other people and keeps a mostly positive attitude. She is easy to like and as a reader, that just feels good. The incorporation of the community outreach center brought variety and life to this story. The teenagers, their personalities and struggles were spot on and believable. I enjoyed the natural progression of Cassie and Luke's relationship. They were both so wary in the beginning but slowly became friends and confidants. It didn't feel rushed or over the top. It was just a gentle and sweet story. I really enjoyed it! Content: Clean, some kissing. -I received a copy of this book through Prism Book Tours for review.

    THE WEDDING MARCH is a steady-paced story that involves family drama, a teen outreach program, musical fame, and sweet romance. It embodied this Harlequin line of books with a story that is sure to touch readers' hearts.

If you enjoy sweet romance with plenty of depth from complex relationships and situations, then definitely give this one a try! Right off I have to say how much I loved the musical aspects of the story! When I was younger I wrote lyrics and songs were always rolling around in my head so I could relate in so many ways to the main characters in this story and to some of the teens who aren't quite brave enough to show their words to the world. Even though I love this aspect of the story, I appreciated how well the author balanced everything. Music didn't overshadow the romance and the romance didn't overshadow these characters' individual struggles. Everything was weaved together to tell a story that feels authentic and easy to relate to in one way or another. It also was easy to build an emotional connection to the characters, becoming invested in the outcome and hoping that things would work out. I also really like these characters. Cassie is such a sweetheart and even though she's been in the spotlight, it hasn't ruined her. She has her own troubles, but there is a humility and honesty that comes across from her. She has such a caring heart (except maybe towards her dad). She's definitely someone I'd love to be friends with. Then there's Luke who has been ruined by the spotlight and a messy divorce and is pretty bitter and standoffish about some things. I love how hard working he is and the time and effort he puts in with teens for his outreach program. He's also charming and quite talented. I love the way Cassie brings Luke back to life or at least challenges his self-imposed prison from living. They were a good match. In the end, was it what I wished for? I really enjoyed this story! It was sweet and left my heart light. Content: Clean Source: Received a complimentary copy through Prism Book Tours, which did not require a review nor affect it in any way.

    The Wedding March by Tara Randel is sweet and romantic, with great characters that tug at your heart. Luke is about as swoony as they come – He’s hot, he’s a little flirty when his heart’s involved, he cares about troubled kids, he writes songs, he plays the guitar, he’s a little broody. Are you getting the picture? Swoony. Cassie makes a very relatable heroine, even for those of us who aren’t pop stars. She’s down to earth, unaffected, and she has a warm heart. She also has family issues – namely The Wedding March by Tara Randel is sweet and romantic, with great characters that tug at your heart.

Are you getting the picture? Swoony. Cassie makes a very relatable heroine, even for those of us who aren’t pop stars. She’s down to earth, unaffected, and she has a warm heart. She also has family issues – namely, a father I wanted to reach into the book and purse whomp. Her relationship with her sister gave dimension to her character as well as the conflict with her father, and Cassie’s mother added some humor as well as wisdom to the story. The romance …. blissful sigh. Two people who can’t seem to stop kissing each other, despite their best efforts to the contrary. Two people who soften each other’s rough edges and challenge the other person to rise above the pain of their past. Two people who respect and support each other in the present as well. Very sweet, very swoony – just the right amount of both. Bottom Line: The Wedding March needs to be on your TBR list. Clean romance, fun characters, and a sweet story. It’s a look at how to deal with the tough-to-love people in our lives, as well as encouragement to hold out hope to the people struggling to find their place. This book will put a smile on your face and in your heart! (I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.) see my review at Reading Is My SuperPower

    Cassie has writer's block, which is such a hard thing to overcome, so when she meets Luke (a legendary, and retired, songwriter) she thinks that maybe he could help her. Luke now is running a Kid's club, helping youth stay out of trouble and get them into something healthy and proactive. Seeing the story progress, watching Cassie and Luke interact with one another as well Cassie's involvement with the kids, was very enjoyable. I feel this story can easily be read as a stand-alone, but I do want Cassie has writer's block, which is such a hard thing to overcome, so when she meets Luke (a legendary, and retired, songwriter) she thinks that maybe he could help her.

I feel this story can easily be read as a stand-alone, but I do want to read the first story now because of the scenes with Nealy and Dane. I think anyone who enjoys Harlequin's Heartwarming line will have a good time reading The Wedding March. I definitely recommend it. I received a complimentary copy of this book to review. I was asked to give my honest opinion of the book - which I have done.

    Latest in the Business of Weddings series, this story occurs in Cypress Pointe, FL, where pop singer Cassie Branford has escaped to get back her mojo--more specifically, to overcome the writer's block that is preventing her from creating new songs for her third album. She encounters Luke Hastings, a former songwriter, at a family wedding. However, Luke is having none of it.

She encounters Luke Hastings, a former songwriter, at a family wedding. However, Luke is having none of it. He's quit the music business following the end of his marriage and the loss of the last song he co-wrote with his ex-wife and has moved on with his life, becoming a high school English teacher and the manager of a community center for the town's teens. Cassie won't give up and decides that if she offers to volunteer at the teen center, Luke will HAVE to help her--or at least tell her what to do to kill that block aside so she can get moving with her chosen career. Luke finally accepts that Cassie isn't going to just quit on the kids and accepts her offer, but only if she'll teach a class on how to write songs with the kids. In the course of doing so, she begins to recover her muse, and he becomes more aware that the friendship Cassie offers him has become more than what she was seeking. But then money disappears after a couple of events at the teen center and the kids suspected include a troubled girl who reminds Cassie of herself years earlier. To make things more complicated, the father she's been estranged from for years attempts to insinuate himself into her career plans and Luke's plans for the teen center. This creates a crisis of confidence in each of them re: their respective intentions. How all this gets resolved is both exciting and heartwarming.

    A gentle and sweet romance--like book 3 ( The Bridal Bouquet ) there's a bit of a mystery involved, and a whole lot of (mostly family and ex-related) drama.

My only real complaint? What English teacher doesn't ever have to spend time grading, planning, or reading over student work...? ;) Rating: 3 1/2 stars / B I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    This is the 4th book in this series but I think this could be read as a stand a lone. This story is full of tenderness, sweetness, compassion, and a make-you-weak-in-the-knees kind of guy. The girl is rough around the edges but not hard, mean, or malicious. You know they're going to end up together even as hard as they try to fight it.

Her first album was all about her style, but when her management team changes her sound for her second album, it doesn’t do as well. She loses her confidence in herself.

Now he is a teacher and runs an after school program for kids at risk. Cassie sees this program as a way to distract herself and give herself a purpose while she’s trying to come up with new material. I really loved the fact that there is a kids at risk program in this book. There need to be more “real world” centers like this. I really loved the teens in this book. They make great secondary characters and their stories are so real. Cassie and Luke are great too, and I love how they get together through songwriting. Clean romance lovers will really enjoy The Wedding March.

    Why do I feel like I’m rubber-stamping my reviews for this line? I don’t mean too. Really. But I can not say enough good things about the line. If you like sweet romance with depth, characters that you instantly fall in love with and when you finish the book, your heart is happy…then this is the line for you. Harlequin Heartwarming just gets it. Truly they do. I haven’t read a bad book from this line at all. In fact, this is my second book from Ms. Randel and I loved it just as much.

Harlequin Heartwarming just gets it. Truly they do. I haven’t read a bad book from this line at all. In fact, this is my second book from Ms. Randel and I loved it just as much. What really stood out for me in this one though was the depth that Cassie really felt for one of the kids at the club. She didn’t have too but she did. It showed great character depth for her and also showed Luke that she wasn’t fluff but really solid as a person. In fact, the kids at the club play a huge part in the romance. I know, kids can be plot devices but Ms. Randal shows us that teenagers have feelings, too and that sometimes they just need to find that one adult that will truly listen to them and understand. (Trust me, I sub at our high school enough. I see it all the time. Plus, I have a few that single me out every time I’m on campus. Just to say Hello and that they miss me in class.) Luke understands the kids, too but somehow, he let the kids rule his so called life and he forgot how to live again. Sure, his ex-wife did a MAJOR number on him but it wasn’t until Cassie showed up that he really understood how to live again and maybe (?) write music again. The music portions of the book were good, too. I liked how Cassie had writer’s block. I have writer’s block all the time. I have 4 books on my computer that are not finished because I can’t get past it. Preach sister! But what struck me was when Luke and Cassie finally decided to collaborate together and it just clicked. *NOTE* I would have liked an epilogue to see if “the” song was ever recorded. But that’s just me. Luke is such a great hero. Loving but so alone. Again, it wasn’t until Cassie came into his life that he realized how alone he really was. I wish that I could have nice things to say about Cassie’s dad. He’s one of the worst dad’s out there. I just wish that Lauren didn’t have to get hurt in the process but Cassie has warned her too many times. But with that in mind, Cassie knew it all along. By the end of the book, I was sad. I didn’t want it to end but alas, it had too. I will miss the colored streak in Cassie’s hair, Luke’s kisses (Oh my), Denny and Erin and the goings on in Cypress Pointe. Great character growth and depth from Cassie and Luke. And yes, Ms. Randal gets it too. She writes a beautiful love story that everyone can read and have a happy heart in the end. Hopefully she will visit this town again. I must come to the wedding of Nealy and Dane.
