Groomed to Perfection by Samantha Chase is now live!
In just one night, she stole his jacket…and his heart.
Shy baker Emilie Michels never thought she’d meet her Prince Charming. Especially not at an event she’s working at. But when a handsome stranger finds her hiding in a corner and strikes up a conversation, she can’t help but be drawn in. Unfortunately, duty calls and she’s forced to flee, leaving the man of her dreams behind. All she has to remember that night is his first name and the suit jacket he gave her to stay warm.
Family has always come first for the Vandergrifts. It doesn’t matter what Cooper might want out of his life, his parents have had a plan for him since the day he was born. His mother even has his wedding all planned out, despite the fact that there’s no bride in the picture. But when Cooper walks into the Meet Me at the Altar offices for a cake tasting and finds himself face to face with the woman he met at a party all those months ago, he thinks it might be time to finally have a say in his love life.
Cooper had resigned himself to a life that would be all about family obligations, but just a few hours with Emilie have him convinced that maybe he could be something else. It’s just a matter of deciding whose happiness matters more: his family’s or his own.
My Thoughts: I have read other books feature the Meet Me at the Altar crew and loved each one. I love that each book is its own story. There is a HEA guarantee and the story is complete. Each book features a different character and tells their love story.
Groomed to Perfection is the story of Cooper and Emilie. Emilie is a phenomenal character. She meets Cooper, feels the attraction, and walks away thinking she will never see him again. They, of course, meet again the sparks still fly and even though she worries that it is a bad idea, she gives Cooper a chance. Each date the sparks get hotter and hotter, and her feelings grown stronger and strong. When push comes to shove and Cooper does not stand up for himself or her, she walks away. SHE WALKS AWAY from the man she loves, the future she was hoping for, and gets a broken heart. I LOVE how strong she is. She walks away from a man who loves her, and she loves because she knows that at this point, she cannot get what she needs from him. She puts herself first, but she gave him a chance before giving up.
I enjoyed seeing Cooper figure out life. He figured it out a little too late, but better late then never, right? I hated how his family treated him and the expectations that they put on him. He walked the line that his family laid out for him and was afraid to step out of line. Not standing up for himself cost him the woman, Emilie, that he loves. I loved how much he loves Emilie, but dang boy GROW UP and stand up for what you want.
Samantha Chase wrote a great addition to the Meet Me at the Altar series. I will always read these books and am excited for the next one to be released.
