    1. 4 - "Your love is the only real thing I need." Stars!I have a bit of a soft spot for Josh and Carissa, you see the first book in the River Bend series Can’t Shake You, was also my first introduction to the awesomeness that is Molly McLain’s writing.I think the title and the blurb gives you the details as to what this novella is about, but in her usual inimitable style Molly manages to squeeze so much more into the story than you would expect of a book of this size. A lot has happened in the [...]

    2. "He was the sunshine on her gray days, her strength when she was weak, the very beat of her heart"- This perfectly describes how Carissa feels about Josh.Who says you can't pack a whole bunch of feelings in just 100 pages. You most definitely can and Molly McLain does exactly that. It's time for Carissa and Josh's wedding. Planning a perfect wedding for herself and Josh has taken a toll on Carissa's health.

    4. The was a very quick glimpse into Carissa and Josh's big day. Unfortunately, everything seems to be going wrong for Carissa and then they discover a wonderful surprise. I have to say I was surprised how whiny and annoying Carissa was in the beginning of this book. She didn't want any help with the wedding from anyone but kept complaining about all the work. Josh as always was majorly hot and thoughtful fiancé who saved his bride to be from stress.

    10. Oooh, how I love River Bend!Now, I'm usually the person who will tell you -- you can totally read this book without any of the others! But not completely this time -- simply because this is like the "extended epilogue" of Can't Shake You. If you're an epilogue reader, like myself, you could probably get away with just reading this fantastic wedding book, but I'm not sure why you would want to only read "the end". Not only do we get to see more of the love Josh has for Carissa, but we also get to [...]

    13. (I received an ARC from the author for an honest review)I am a HUGE fan of the authors and I LOVE this series and all the characters.

    14. This book was the best! I really loved that this author chose to continue on Josh and Carissa's story and have them get married in the most adorable way. I mean, seriously, Josh took it upon himself to make the wedding happen with the help of the other River Bend couples that I love so much, so that Carissa could stop stressing. The man is perfect and it's a shame that he is fictional. Lol. Anywho, I spent the entire time I was reading with a big goofy smile on my face because everything that ha [...]

    26. Carissa has to have attitude when dealing with Josh at times, "was he for real? She shoved at his chest, but he didn’t budge. “You’re going to get an irrational kick in the you-know-what if you don’t get out of my way.” Josh can get so excited at times he forgets where he is, “eff, babe, have you seen yourself?” Father Joe cleared his throat and Carissa dropped her chin to her chest, giggling. Whoops. “Sorry, Father.” Carissa knows how to shock her man, "biting her lip, she wai [...]

    27. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC in time for Valentine's Day. As usual, Molly McLain reminded me why she's one of my favourite romance authors. I love the setting she's created of Riverbend and this novella was a great catch up with the local characters whose stories I've enjoyed. You should definitely read Carissa and Josh's story first in Can't Shake You. The characters and situations are relatable. The plot is interesting while still being realistic. The romance is steamy without being ov [...]

    28. Holy Moly Molly, you've done it again! A River Bend Wedding features the nuptials of Josh and Carissa from Can't Shake You, and the rest of the River Bend gang we all know and love. I laughed, I cried, I laughed again. A fabulous follow up to favorite couple, and a must read for River Bend Fans!*reccomended reading AFTER the first 4 books for full enjoyment. Plus, spoilers for those!**I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review*

    29. Loved the book, it was so good to find out what happened to Carissa and Josh along with Maddy and Dan. It's made me want to go back and re-read the stories as I read them quite a while ago. I think my only criticism is that the cover kind of gave it away, if you look at the female model she does like slightly pregnant. That said, it's a minor criticism. I adore Molly's books and cannot wait to read more of them. <3
