Release Day Review: My Darling Bride by Ilsa Madden-Mills

In a sizzling romance that sparkles with wit and depth, two wounded souls meet by chance in the desert and agree to get married, and their lives will never be the same.

On a normal day, Emmaline Darling isn’t a car thief. She’s just a simple girl who runs a bookstore and adores cats. But when she’s stranded in the desert and needs to get away from her dangerous ex-boyfriend, she picks her only option: swiping the keys to a famous football player’s Lamborghini and speeding away.

Football star Graham Harlan is in chaos. First he took a hit on the field that left him with a near-death experience, and now he’s promised his brother he’ll get married to secure the family inheritance. Trouble is he isn’t even seeing anyone.

Then a mystery woman steals his car. With his usual stubbornness, he tracks her all the way to Manhattan and gives her an ultimatum: marry me or I’ll press charges.

Her choice is obvious, only neither of them expect the sparks that ignite between them.

As the end of their arrangement looms, will Graham take a chance on love or let his darling walk away forever?

**ARC provided in exchange for an honest review**

My Darling Bride by Ilsa Madden-Mills is a super fun romance with a cool mix of humor and heart. Emmy and Graham's chemistry is off the charts, and their journey from a random desert encounter to an unexpected marriage is a wild ride.

Emmy and Graham's first encounter is hilarious, thanks to Madden-Mills' clever writing. But what really got me was Emmy's fierce loyalty to her family. The bond she shares with her siblings adds this extra layer of heart that makes the whole story feel more real.

The story's pacing is just right—easy to dive into and enjoy. Although the ending felt a bit rushed, the overall vibe is light and entertaining, leaving you wanting more. The supporting characters are fantastic, and I'm crossing my fingers for spin-offs about them!

To sum it up, My Darling Bride is a must-read if you want a romance that's funny and heartwarming. Emmaline and Graham's love story is a wonderful ride that'll leave you with a big smile on your face.
