“The Bridal Squad” is an extension of “ The Friday Night Brides”…both standalone, and part of “The Enchanted Bride Series. So rest assures that if you haven’t read “The Friday Night Brides”, you can still enjoy “The Bridal Squad” on its own.

Having said that, Samantha Chase braved going on a different path with this story. So if you are expecting it to be a pure and pure love story, you will be disappointed and I’m going to be honest here, you’ll either like or hate it. But if you are familiar with Samantha’s books, and if you trust her creativity, this story is a good insight into Samantha’s writing prowess, not only as a romance writer, but also as an author who has the ability to be eloquent about human relationships, emotions and experiences.

Personally I loved this story!!! Four friends, with independent lives, battling the daily upheavals of life, with a friend on the verge of marriage, as another is on the fence of getting a divorce, a sister who has been battered with multiple breakups and a wanderlust friend trying to come to terms with a steady relationship. So many dynamics thrown into this amazing mixture we call relationship, it makes this story even more interesting to read.

“The Bridal Squad” is as practical as it can be, and as real as it can get, with friends finally being open about their feelings, sharing their fears and insecurities, and having each other’s back, despite their individual personalities…..and so very relatable with your own group of friends.

“The Bridal Squad” is one daunting story that is rich in friendship, strong characterization and deeply enriched with human emotions.

Samantha Chase is fast becoming a maestro of romance stories as she breathes life into characters that her readers can relate to – from the Montgomerys to the Shaughnesseys with attitude and life partners with sass. She builds each character with care and details and that is one of her best skills as a prominent writer.

Her latest release “Friday Night Brides” is a testament to that very fact of caricaturing four friends from kindergarten to adults, as they go through the growing pains, being part of each other’s lives, crying and laughing with each other as they create their own individual lives. As different as chalk and cheese, these four friends have become each other’s rocks as they flew through life.

Angie, Becca, Ella and Hayley are not only friends for lifetime; they also have been modeling for Hayley’s mother’s Enchanted Bridal, from flower girls to brides now. And this very adventure since childhood has give roots to dreams of their own weddings and their partners for life, as they find their own Happily-Ever-After. Sean, Max, Dylan and Jackson complement these dazzling Friday Night Brides!

“Friday Night Brides” is just not a romance story. It gives an insight into the dreams of young adults, the trials and tribulations of relationships, breakups and heartaches, support and family, and the insecurities and uncertainties of loving one person for a lifetime. And add in the drama of extended family and few glitches that life always seems to enjoy throwing in our faces, this book is a dazzling read.

Placing four characters in a story is no easy job, and Samantha Chase managed to create magic with Angie, Becca, Ella and Hayley, giving them their own identity and individuality. With a fabulous storyline and brilliant narration, Friday Night Brides makes us wish for friends and dreams as these four wonderful and lovely ladies.
