Bride | Ali Hazelwood
"A dangerous alliance between a Vampyre bride and an Alpha werewolf becomes a love deep enough to sink your teeth into in this new paranormal romance from the New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis. Misery Lark, the only daughter of the most powerful Vampyre councilman of the Southwest, is an outcast-again. Her days of living in anonymity among the Humans are over: she has been called upon to uphold a historic peacekeeping alliance between the Vampyres and their mortal enemies, the Weres, and she sees little choice but to surrender herself in the exchange. Again. Weres are ruthless and unpredictable, and their Alpha, Lowe Moreland, is no exception. He rules his pack with absolute authority, but not without justice. And, unlike the Vampyre Council, not without feeling. It's clear from the way he tracks Misery's every movement that he doesn't trust her. If only he knew how right he was.... Because Misery has her own reasons to agree to this marriage of convenience, reasons that have nothing to do with politics or alliances, and everything to do with the only thing she's ever cared about. And she is willing to do whatever it takes to get back what's hers, even if it means a life alone in Were territory...alone with the wolf"--

This … Ali Hazelwood has done it again … a well-thought complex storyline with great characters. Strong female character and great-complex love story. I flew through this… and I‘m hoping for a sequel 🙌🏽📚

Both of these just edged into Pick territory for 3 ⭐️ reads. I appreciate that Ali Hazelwood is finally branching out from the (now very) repetitive trope formula established in The Love Hypothesis (Grumpy/Sunshine, extreme height difference). Check & Mate still featured a very nerdy subject (professional chess) and Bride‘s FMC is a Vampire Princess-in-STEM, but exploring new genres (YA, Paranormal Romance) has breathed new life into her writing.

PERHAPS NOT everyone's cup of tea but I really did enjoy this immensely. Bride got me out of a reading slump. Now that I am finished, I am experiencing a severe book hangover and miss this story 😔. My 30th book of the year and second five-star.

I was really nervous to read this having seen some mixed reviews, and knowing how much I adore Hazelwood‘s other books. But I absolutely devoured it and could not put it down!!! I loved the humour mixed in with the drama. Considering this was her first book into the fantasy genre I was very impressed. Also so happy that the end looks as though she‘s setting up for a sequel. Yay!

It was right around St. Valentine's Day when I went 2 Walmart & found this. Their bookshelves had mostly Romance reads.

I usually browse to see if there is any love stories in the fantasy genre. This time however, I just finished watching the novela, #amorimposible & I “needed“ something similar.

By the time I found this, it felt like buried treasure. It didn't seem what I was searching for at that moment in time, yet it was fantasy...👇

AnnCrystal At first, it seemed similar to the the start of, The Kiesha're series by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes: a marriage to bring peace.

Not perfect, yet an unexpected delight! Even had the Beauty And The Beast vibes that had made me obsessed with, Amor Imposible.

Here's some notions...

Vampires were missing a bit of the mysterious they're usually known for. Nonetheless, I did like that the vampires were a species instead of some type of mutation. 👇
2w
AnnCrystal Loved the Were's & how they seemed the most sophisticated of the three species. I'm careful with “wolf“ books because many seem to still hold a negative perspective about wolves, or are overly x-rated. While this did become steamy, it did not incredibly dominant the storyline...and they became acquainted first.

Lowe's demeanor seemed to suggest someone who is well into their thirties and not twenty-something.

Oh, what a lovely read.

Holy. FRICK. That was addicting to read. Couldn't put it down - besides quick breaks to laugh or go "omg, wait what". Silly “monster” romance. Lowe is freaking amazing. I can't get over his everything. That speech he gives Misery on that trip? Hell, that hit every pore. Misery herself, well, I felt so bad for her going through all that abuse. Still, she never backed down. Spice was hot due to the amazing emotional connection they created.

I was a little disappointed with 'Bride' but it's not really the book...I just don't think I'm a werewolf/vampire person .... I never went through the 'Twilight' phase. It was well written and quite funny at times... Just not for me 🤷 I'm off to eat this chocolate bunny, drink tea and read! Have a fabulous Easter Sunday 💖

What a fun read! This book has been criticized for being silly, but I ask you, what to expect from a book about a vampyre and a werewolf, lol. Total fluff, but also with some surprising insights into loss and abandonment and loneliness, as well as conflict and stereotyping and power politics. I liked watching Misery and Lowe get to know each other and build a real LIKING for one another beyond just attraction, and a satisfying ending.

3.75⭐This book has an odd cover, almost as if it was left unfinished….but anyhoo…this is my first Ali Hazelwood book, and while this book was compulsively readable I can‘t help but inevitably come up with some elements that didn‘t work for me. Also…for a Vampyre/Werewolf book, this was surprisingly un-supernatural, other than the knotting🠠WTF seriously, that scene was so awkward. Although, it‘s quite likely that I‘ll listen to the next one.

Spring has NOT sprung in Vermont (or it was one of those “false springs“ they talk about. Yesterday's snowstorm derailed my weekend plans. But, I got a lot of reading under a heated blanket cuddling with the babies time!

I finished this one. I enjoyed it, I hadn't read a paranormal romance in a while so some of the racer parts surprised me. (Maybe I wasn't used to Were/Vampire sex). Had a lot of the typical tropes too, but I still enjoyed it.

ElizaMarie @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks We had a bit of a snowstorm yesterday, so I spent the day reading. I finished Bride yesterday. I think it was good, however, it had some of similar paranormal romance tropes. Either way, I enjoyed it. Some weird (to me) sex scenes (but it might be typical for paranormal romance, I just hadn't read some in a while). 3w

5/5

Misery Lark's marriage to the werewolf alpha will cement a treaty between werewolves and vampyres, but she has her own reason for agreeing to risk her life by entering this marriage.

I devoured this book in two days. Hazelwood's first paranormal romance was super fun with a very different plot, but with a lot of the tropes she's known for using in her romcoms.

ElizaMarie I picked this up because I thought the cover was pretty :) 🤩 I started it while I was waiting on my hubby at the doc's office and already know I am going to love it! Glad to see it was a pick for you! 1mo

Many of you really like this book, I am against the clock on my library loan here (I know I can airplane mode 😉) I‘m at about 25% & the characters are not doing it for me (so 1 dimensional) but I also DNF‘d 2 books yesterday so it‘s probably just me 😂 Talk me into it (or out of it) - should I persevere and hope it clicks or #hailthebail ?

Zuhkeeyah I really enjoyed this book but I was intentionally reading it for a breather. I vote #hailthebail and circle back when you're ready. 1mo
5feet.of.fury @BethM @Zuhkeeyah I think GoT is definitely the problem, I‘m so caught up in it, my whole heart was in Westeros this week. I thought reading something lighter was going to help me, but seemingly if it‘s not going to rip my heart out, it‘s nothing to me 😂 I took your advice & let it go, maybe I‘ll try it again at some point 1mo
BethM @5feet.of.fury it‘s hard not to be! I‘m enjoying the #littensloveromance read on audio and my #lmpbc but GoT comes first. It‘s definitely edged out my attempt at reading The Silmarillion. 1mo
5feet.of.fury @BethM oh the fact that I have too many Buddy reads/challenges is also a factor. #ReadingWesteros #thebros with #hashtagbrigade #lmpbc #chloegongreadalong I‘m supposed to be doing #noplacelikeholmes but missed the last few short stories 🙃 my #lmpbc pick is actually really good, I started it yesterday & im already 100 pages in so that was good &surprising since even though it was my book I had no idea what it was about 😅 1mo

I devoured Bride this week! While it was a little predictable and more on the basic side of fantasy 😂 I couldn‘t put it down! It was soooo cute & now I‘m craving more wolf romance in my life. Also I had to immediately reread Fangs, which is a quick graphic novel about a vampire +werewolf romance that I love! Have you read either of these? Or what book has your attention this week?

It‘s always fun to read Were and Vampire rules implemented for new generations existing in a world of prolific-breeding humans. These were fun characters with a romance that did not lean into the miscommunication trope - kudos for this because with all that interspecies steam it would have been easy to fall victim to it. The steam comes in at the halfway mark so Ali gave us a chance to know Misery and Lowe first - I appreciate that.

At first, I couldn't get into the world-building, but once I was able to sit down and really devote the time to this vampire/werewolf story, I couldn't put it down.

I was invested in not only the romance but also the mystery of Serena's whereabouts and the affection between Misery and young halfbreed Ana.

Hazelwood's trademark snark and spice abounded.

Loved it!

Enjoying this but feeling… Not 20? 🤣 I‘m glad The Youths have discovered paranormal romance. I‘m glad their fearless embrace of that which they enjoy has been empowered by social media and that that in turn has given power to honest enjoyment…. But having read this genre since I *was* 20, I‘m feeling a tad “oh sweet summer children” for The Youths discovering it… it‘s a weird and odd feeling I‘m just going to lean into and be glad 🤣💛🤣

Vampyre Misery agrees to an arraigned marriage to Were alpha, Lowe, in the hopes of bringing peace to the two warring species but also to find answers she desperately needs. I needed a fun diversion this weekend and Hazelwood delivered with a great heroine, plenty of steam, and some interesting world building. I had some minor quibbles but overall hope she makes this a series.
