Bouquet Toss by Melissa Brown

Bouquet Toss


So Daphne always catches the bouquet at every wedding she attends.  Why isn't she married?  After catching the bouquet so many times, one would expect her to not be single eventually.  Well, she cannot let go of the one boy who she thought always held her heart.   She cannot overlook the way he truly treated her.  Sure she admits he broke her heart, but she doesn't admit to his faults that blinded her so many years ago.

When Daphne and Mayson find each other again, she thinks that this is it.  She falls back into her old patterns with him.  She continues to deny his faults and taking her for granted.  When tragedy strikes, the question remains if she can move on, or stay in the past with Mayson.

I had a hard time with this book.  I gave it 4 hearts... I almost gave it three, but could not bring myself to do so because the characters ever evolving hooked me.  It takes true talent to develop a character in the way that Daphne is created by the end of the book.  We all know someone like her, or are like her.  Either way, her character alone makes the book stand on its own two feet.
