 Book Review: Meg by Julie Jarnagin

Meg by Julie Jarnagin is the first book in the brand new Beach Brides series which features twelve friends who are all die hard romantic women each with a painful heartbreaking past who, on a dare while drunk, throw one bottle each with a message inside it for their dream hero.

Meg as the title suggests is the story of one of these twelve women, Meg Mullen, who works in the community theatre in her small town. The theatre is on the verge of closing due to lack of funds but help comes in the form of Television Producer, Elliot Campbell who finds Meg's bottle with the message and thinking her to be the perfect contestant for his reality show offers her the job. Reluctant but forced by her love for her theatre, she agrees and so begins a fun filled ride towards true love which had me laughing, reaching out for popcorn and ignoring all work as I stayed glued to my couch eagerly turning pages until the end.

I am a hopeless romantic and who doesn't love the mystery and romance that a message in a bottle presents! As soon as I read the blurb for this series, I knew I had to read all the books. Despite being part of a series, each book is a standalone novella and can be read separately out of order as I did. I read the second book, Tara first and then jumped to this one.

Being a person who doesn't enjoy reality dating shows and refrain from watching any, I loved how Julie Jarnagin easily had me sucked into the pretentious world of such shows where everything is preplanned so as to garner the highest TRP ratings. The writing is witty, engaging and fluid. I enjoyed each second spnet reading this book and will be checking out the other books by Julie Jarnagin.

Meg and Elliot's romance is both exciting and so realistic. There are no explicit scenes which makes it a book suitable for all age groups. I loved the emotional appeal and the helpless feeling of knowing that they cant be together and yet craving and unable to stop from seeking each other's company is so beautifully brought out by the author. 

I didnt like Elliot at first but he slowly won my heart with his heart of gold and love for Meg. A true feel-good romance that will have you feeling the magic of true love, the cool ocean waves lapping at your feet and the warmth of the beach sun right in your drawing room. A perfect getaway from the chaos of every day, I wholeheartedly recommend Meg by Julie Jarnagin to all romance lovers and look forward to reading lots more from the author in the future. 4.5 stars of 5 to it from me.

I received an ARC for review and I am very thankful to the author. The above is my honest and unbiased review.
