Publisher's Summary

He's a cowboy looking for love. She's a makeup artist trying to reinvent herself. When they meet on a reality dating show, will sparks fly? Or will the rules keep them apart?

Cowboy Tyler Hall never thought he would be a contestant on a reality dating TV show, but after his latest breakup, his best friend's wife talks him into auditioning. When he gets word that he's been chosen, he can't believe it - but as his last few relationships have ended poorly, he decides to try something different and take a chance. However, he gets more than he bargained for when he falls for a woman who is not a contestant.

Laney Swann has been running from her high school insecurities for years, but when she loses her job, she ends up having to return home and reunites with an old friend who convinces her to do the makeup for a reality TV show. Laney expected it to be just a job until she met the bachelor. Now she has to control her feelings while watching him date other women.

Will she ever get the courage to tell him how she feels? And if she does, will he prove different from the other men in her past?

This is the first book in the multi-author Blushing Bride series. Each book will be standalone, but have the common thread of brides and weddings running through them.

Sweet Romance

Laney and Tyler .... Lorana is so creative with her writing and knows how to draw her readers in to a a sweet romantic love story . The story has sweet romance , a little drama , and the characters have faith in a heavenly father . Like how a christian contemporary romance can have a great love story and have a message about trusting god in finding the right soul mate .
The narrator is did an amazing job !

author as her own narrator: great job

The Cowboy's Reality Bride was both a sweet and fun listen. It was certainly interesting to have the author be her own narrator, but I think she did a great job. The different voices, as well as the inflections and such, were on point. My only advice would be to check the sentence that repeats itself in the middle of the book, and also that during Laney's getting to know Nancy for the first time, Nancy's voice didn't sound like what the listener had been used to till then. Other than that, the story was fantastic and I really appreciated and loved that despite this being a reality TV romance, it was also Christian Fiction, and thus their faith felt real in Laney and Tyler's lives and relationship. ~ 4.5 stars

Great Read

The Cowboy’s Reality Bride (Blushing Brides #1) was another great read by Lorana Hoopes. Tyler is a cowboy who is looking for love and was encouraged to be a contestant on a reality dating tv show. He is reluctant to go on the show but decides to anyway. Laney was fired from her job and an old friend convinces her to be a makeup artist on a reality tv dating show. She expects to do her job and then start over after. She definitely doesn’t expect to fall for the cowboy bachelor. I really enjoyed Tyler and Laney’s story and can’t wait to read more by Lorana Hoopes.

A good story

This story is also in book form. The narrator did a great job with the story. She brought the story to life for me. I enjoyed this story of Laney Swann and Cowboy Tyler Hall. Laney Swann is a makeup artist. When she get fired from her job she goes back home to find out that her old friend has call. Her friend wants her to do the makeup for a reality Tv show. When she gets there to she meets Cowboy Tyler Hall and Sparks began to fly.

I received a complimentary copy to listen to from the author. The is my honest unbiased opinion.

The Cowboy's Reality Bride

Great book! I love Lorana Hoopes books and narration. Good, clean romances. There is always a touch of religion to each book, but it makes you think.

Fun Story!

I read it in one sitting, actually stayed up all night. Not because it was short, but because I really enjoyed this story. I laughed through most of the pages. More than once my hubby ask me what's so funny. I highly recommend this book if you love sweet fun stories.

Recommended

I have read other reality tv stories in the past. I didn't like them as it appeared the main point was either hurting, embarrassing, or causing strife to the characters. I liked this one. The circumstances and various motivations appeared realistic but Tyler & Laney's attitude made all the difference. You'll need to read it to find out why.

The author did a fabulous job narrating. There was only one issue when a couple of sentences were repeated.

I recieved a free Audible copy of this story in exchange for a honest review.

The Christian Bachelor

This was a cute take on “The Bachelor” reality TV show. I liked that Tyler was a Christian and that he was looking for someone that shared his values and would be happy living on his ranch in a real relationship and not just one for a publicity stunt. Laney was never really happy trying to be someone that she thought would fit in with the popular kids from high school. It took being a part of this show and meeting Tyler and his friends from home to find out what really made her happy.

The author narrated this book and she had a smooth and sweet voice with some country accents thrown in.

Cute and Sweet romance

A refreshing romantic story. Funny at times. I can relate to Clumsy, klutzy Lanie. The premise is Lanie working as a makeup artist on a tv reality show and Tyler the main star, is instantly attracted to her. His willing to give up everything to pursue dating her, shows character. They both connected emotionally and spiritually . I thoroughly enjoyed listening to his story. Lorana Hoopes narration is sweet and flowed well!. I was gifted this audio book I offered my honest review..

Love at first fall

I thoroughly enjoyed this sweet romance story. It was full of fun but also had some seriousness as well. If you ever wanted a little bit of a look behind the scenes of some of these reality shows this gives a look at what we assume is going on behind the scenes. Full of fun and drama.

Great to listen to, brought a great story to life

I received this as an arc and I am giving my honest review voluntarily

Sweet & flirty!

Can you find the love your life on the set of TV show? Tyler is about to find out as he embarks on a quest to find a wife. Laney is filling in as the makeup artist on the set, and these two hit is off! But Laney is not in the running for his attention! What will happen next not only surprises those watching but will keep you listening to see how things turn out! Lorana Hoopes has crafted a sweet, clean romance that will leave your heart warm and completely in love.

Narration is key, and Lorana Hoopes also narrates the book. She nails it with her pleasant voice. I am very impressed with her array of voices and I loved her ability to give me all the feels. She gives a wonderful performance and I can't wait to see what she has in store next!
