Ms. English has written a beautiful final story for the Beach Brides series and I am sorry it has ended since it quickly became a favorite of mine. I look forward to reading all of the books again at a later time because I bought them all for my keeper library. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
Amy, on the other hand, is still waiting to hear from her dream man. Disheartened and heartbroken because she really did hope to find her love when she threw the bottle, she doesn't want to be an object of pity when she travels to attend the reunion to meet her friends in a few weeks on Enchanted Island. A chance encounter with a most handsome man, Dawson Yates, leads to a proposal to a fake engagement which will apparently solve her and his problems.
Is this the start to a romance she has always been waiting for or will it lead to a heartbreak of the worst kind?
The cover is gorgeous and very eye catching. Combined with the blurb, it will make readers stop to take notice of the book.
Despite being part of a series, this is a standalone story. All books in this series are individual stories and can be read out of order.
I have read and enjoyed Raine English's books in the past so when I heard about her contribution to Beach Brides series, a series I am absolutely enjoying and highly recommend to everyone, I jumped at the chance to review it.
The story is a quick read and I easily finished it in one sitting. The plot had great potential but overall I feel that the execution could have been better. Some parts feel rushed and left me wanting more.
The characters are easily relatable and I loved both these people. However, the character development is rushed and I feel the author should have given more page space to developing Amy and Dawson's romance so that their relationship looked more plausible.
Another facet that wanted more work is the back story and its connection to the future. Both Amy and Dawson had reasons to enter the whole fake relationship but once there, nothing is shown how this affected (eased or worsened) their reasons. A more detailed reunion with the other Beach Brides would have definitely added more appeal to the story and given my romantic fan heart a jump. I also wanted to know more about Dawson's relationship with his parents.
Despite some facets of the story that didn't give me the closure I craved, I still loved reading this clean romance book which has some really memorable moments and gave me new goals to achieve when I next plan my vacation, like saving money to book an overwater villa!
Both Amy and Dawson are lovely people and I rooted for their happily-ever-after throughout the book.
All in all, Amy by Raine English is a breezy, quick beach romance that is suited for all age groups. I give it 3 stars out of 5 and strongly recommend the Beach Brides series to everyone. Am so sad to see the end of this beautiful series and hope more such series get published in the future.

This leads him to an idea!!!!
What is Dawson's Idea? What will Amy think?
What will she do?
Could this man holding her bottle be Amy's
This is an unique, smoothly and very creatively
written story. There were plenty of nice descriptive
details taking the reader along with the characters
as the story begins then progresses right up to the
end. The reader feels what the main characters think.
They see through their eyes and share their feelings.
The major characters have depth making them very
real and captivating.
An entertaining, enjoyable, heartwarming and highly
There are twelve books and twelve authors included
in this Beach Brides Series. Each book can be read
as a stand alone. This is the last book in the series.
I volunteered to read " Amy ". Thanks to the author
for the opportunity. My opinion is my own.
