THE BRIDAL SQUAD (ENCHANTED BRIDAL) BY SAMANTHA CHASE
Release Date: May 10, 2017
The Friday Night Brides are back! And this time, it’s their first season running the business! It was one thing to just model in a weekly fashion show, it’s quite another to be the ones calling the shots and making future brides’ dreams come true. Their first client has them wondering if they’re really prepared for their new roles!
The Bride: Julianne is big on fitness, small on patience. And planning her wedding is grating on her every last nerve. As a Zumba instructor, she loves the freedom to create and choreograph her routines and help others achieve their goals, but having to stand back and let others choreograph her big day has her wanting to hip-hop toward eloping!
The Matron of Honor: As the only married member of the bridal party, Natalie considers herself the aficionado on all-things weddings. And even though her time in the spotlight is over, that doesn’t mean she isn’t full of ideas on how her best friend’s wedding should look and feel and be! And it doesn’t take long for her to realize that maybe it’s not so much that she’s wanting to help as it is that she’s afraid of her own honeymoon ending.
The Bride’s Sister: Nothing screams unwanted relationship advice than when your younger sister gets married before you. It’s not that Harper doesn’t want to get married, after three failed engagements she really does! But finding the right man to walk down the aisle with is proving harder than she thought. And it gets even harder when constantly being compared to the perfect couple!
The Reluctant Bridesmaid: There is nothing Kayla wants more than to see one of her best friend’s get married…if only the whole process wasn’t so exhausting! Travel and adventure and being on the go fuels her. Having to stay in one place for an extended period of time while wearing taffeta? Not so much. Her job tends to take her away on a moment’s notice and this is one time she may have to pass up the trip of a lifetime in the name of friendship.

The Bridal Squad by Samantha Chase
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
In the best of times and the worst of times, it's always good to have friends. Samantha Chase, spotlights the beautiful bond that toes the line between crazy and amazing in The Bridal Squad. From Natalie, who always needs to be in control to Kayla the bridesmaid reluctant to even take on the role. Julianne, the Bride is slowly losing her mind as the day draws ever near, while frustrated sister Harper may be giving in to her fears. The Bridal Squad is like looking in a mirror with how relatable the scenarios are, but the area Ms. Chase never seems to miss, is the impact she makes on the heart.

FOR A LIMITED TIME,
THE WEDDING SEASON BY SAMANTHA CHASE
Release Date: June 24, 2015
There were three guarantees in Tricia Patterson’s life:
1. Her friendship with Sean Peterson was rock solid
2. She had a career that she absolutely adored
3. This summer was going to be the death of her
With the proverbial “Always a Bridesmaid and Never a Bride” becoming her new mantra, Tricia didn’t know how she was going to survive this year’s round of weddings. Six of them this summer alone! In an attempt to ward off the pity-party, her best friend Sean gives her the perfect solution to help her get through – he’ll pretend to be her boyfriend. While not certain that was going to be of any help, Tricia’s knows it also won’t hurt.
When circumstances beyond Sean’s control keep him from coming home to Tricia’s aid, he sends his brother Ryan in his place. Four years older than his brother and his best friend, Ryan isn’t sure why these weddings are such a big deal. He’s also not sure of what the exact nature is of this relationship between Sean and Tricia. And that’s becoming a big problem because the more time he spends with Tricia, the more he realizes that she’s the one he wants to plan a wedding with.
REVIEW: THE WEDDING SEASON BY SAMANTHA CHASE
The Wedding Season by Samantha Chase
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Wedding Season is my fantasy story. I was enchanted by Tricia. Nothing can trigger her overly dramatic insecurities like weddings. Happily ever afters and Prince Charming are her Kryptonite. Just the thought sends her from level headed to neurotic. The irony is that she gets this way not because she is against the concept, but because it never seems to come her way. Could it be she is just not looking in the right places? She looks to best friend Sean to keep her in check. He is her anchor in a sea of matrimony. Could her anchor be standing in the way of her happily ever after? Samantha Chase has crafted a delightful story full of witty situations, heartwarming moments that are thought provoking and believable. A good time.

FRIDAY NIGHT BRIDES (ENCHANTED BRIDAL) BY SAMANTHA CHASE
Release Date: May 3, 2016
They’ve been friends since they were five, and modeling for Enchanted Bridal has been as much of a part of their lives as their friendship has. And this season has them seeing more than new wedding trends.
Hailey’s family owns Enchanted Bridal and she knows there’s a possibility that someday it will be hers. She’s not sure that’s the path she wants to take, but she does know that she’s been hopelessly crushing on the perfect man and bridal show model Logan Baxter III. While failing to gain Logan’s attention, she can’t seem to get rid of the less-than-perfect man – and model – Jackson Carr. He’s big and bold and tattooed – pretty much everything Hailey despises. And yet…there’s something about him that has Hailey questioning her definition of perfect.
Becca’s got a knack for dating the wrong kind of guys. When her current boyfriend publicly dumps and humiliates her, she’s devastated. Wanting to run and hide, she’s mortified that the stranger who had witnessed the entire scene is now part of the Enchanted Bridal family. But when Max Abrams offers her comfort and tells her that he thinks she’s beautiful, she has to wonder if maybe getting dumped by Mr. Wrong has finally led her to her very own Mr. Right.
Angie’s loud and feisty and completely fearless. That is until she gets dumped by the one guy she really had feeling for. It opens her up to insecurities she didn’t know she had and she’s not sure what to do about it. But when Sean Patterson comes back into her life in a big way, she’s not sure she’s ready to forgive and forget quite so easily. His persistence and her stubbornness make for an exciting chase, however, but at the end of the season, it’s ultimately up to her if she’s ready to quit running.
Ella’s been planning her perfect wedding to Dylan Graham since she was twelve. Together for thirteen years, Ella’s beginning to wonder if that number really is bad luck. She can’t focus on all that’s right in her life because all she can think about is what she may be missing. Their parents have taken over their wedding, her friends all seem to be in crisis and Dylan’s just not listening to her fears. Not one to ever make waves, she suddenly finds that that’s exactly what she’s doing and turning everyone’s life upside down in the process. The life that she once considered boring is now the one she longs for, but it may be too late.

Friday Night Brides by Samantha Chase
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I love how Samantha Chase mixes it up. She can do drama and heartache like nobody else but she also has a side that is funny and sassy. That side is put on full display with Friday Night Brides. Angie, Ella, Becca and Hailey are a close group. They have shared so much of their lives that it's only natural. When life, love and maturity start to change the dynamic of their friendships is when the chaos begins. I received an ARC of Friday Night Brides in exchange for an honest review. Getting to see a different side of Ms. Chase' personality was a real treat. I also had a blast getting to know these women. The one thing that never changes for me when reading a Samantha Chase novel is the sincerity that she puts in every single one.
