Victoria's Promise by Julie Wright
A luxurious mansion. Thirty stunning bachelorettes. One very eligible bachelor. All of the ingredients are in place for a successful reality dating show, and behind the scenes, Tori Winters is set to pull the romantic strings as assistant director of Vows. Despite her distaste for public exhibitions of love—which spelled the death of her last relationship—Tori intends to give the public exactly what they want: scintillating footage of a bevy of beauties vying for the attention of Christopher Caine. But Chris, a consummate Southern gentleman and the star of Vows, seems almost too good to be true—and soon, even Tori finds herself falling under his spell. Despite legal obligations to avoid fraternizing with the talent, it’s clear her feelings are anything but unrequited. With the support of her friends in the Newport Ladies Book Club, Tori must make a life-altering decision: is she willing to jeopardize all she’s worked for in order to embrace her own fairy-tale ending?
Have you ever read a series and with each new book felt like, this is the best one yet! ? That's definitely how I felt about Victoria's Secret. This isn't a deep story, but I think that I enjoyed that the conflicts in this book are quite different from those found in the rest of the series. This was more like a fairytale, and Chris was a wonderful main character.
I'll admit that after reading about the same book club nights in the previous six books in the series, I found myself skimming those sections. I love the friendships gained from the book club, but really just wanted to get to the rest of Tori's story.
One of my favorite lines in the book was:
"Every relationship needed a spider killer." - p. 67
I totally agreed with that line, and it was bits like this that helped me relate to Tori. She has this job that isn't relatable, and is surrounded by gorgeous people and glamorous settings, but she's still a down to earth girl.
Victoria's Secret is filled with emotion. I really felt for Tori at times.
I loved how it ended. I wanted more of the main characters' story, but it really was a sweet ending.
