Review: Jilted by Kelly Jamieson

Jilted is the story of a hot fireman who get left at the alter. Literally. Left. At. The. Alter. His bride is standing next to him, when another guy, Gavin, shows up, picks her up and waltzes right out of the church with her.

Josh stands there, dumbfound (I mean, who wouldn’t be right?). Then he goes after her only to have no idea where to look for her. Devon, his ex-girlfriend and his ex-bride’s ex-best friend, helps Josh look for her.

Confused yet? Don't be. It’s actually pretty straightforward.

Josh and Devon enjoy a week together, in the honeymoon suite Josh was to be in with his new wife. Over that week they grow closer together again. But what happens when they go back to reality?

I really wanted to like this story. I loved the premise. The mixed up, what in the world is going on premise. But it fell a little flat for me. I was annoyed with Devon through most of the book. She was sneaky and underhanded. I know she has mommy-abandonment issues, but that doesn’t excuse the sneakiness. Josh, bless his heart, just let it go. He was jilted by one fiancĂ©, just to be used by his ex-girlfriend. He just let it go? Saint? Nope. Martyr.

I was hoping for more from this story. Two-star crossed past lovers reconnecting….fabulous! I just couldn’t get past Devon’s sneakiness and Josh’s ability to forgive anything.
