Dressed in White by Jessica Gibson


  
Lorelei Peters had everything she had ever dreamed of.
  Amazing friends, a sexy boyfriend, and a job that she absolutely loved.

Dillon Brockwell was all she had ever wanted. Handsome,
  successful, and he loved her as much as she loved him. Life was going along the way it was supposed to, until someone from Dillon’s past shows up and shatters everything to pieces.

Can Lorelei and Dillon get through all the craziness and make it down the aisle? Or will lies of omission be enough to derail them forever.


 5 stars
I really liked this book. I have read several of Jessica Gibson's books but they have been her paranormal series. I was a little nervous about this one since it was a contemporary romance and different from her other stuff. I love when a author can change genres and still be just as great. One of the things I loved most about this is that the female lead was strong but she really didn't need the rich guy to take care of her. She was a successful business owner herself who could support or self and was shown as an equal to the male lead. The past that comes back to mess with their future is a pretty big twist. I loved all the characters and the story was great. It was a nice fun read that made it very enjoyable. I really am hoping that this will turn into a series. I would love to read more about Dane and Kayla and even a book on Roxie would be great to read. Can't wait for more.

     


Just as I had predicted, I fell asleep as soon as we got moving. The next thing I knew, Dillon was lifting me into his arms and carrying me off the bus.
“When did you get on the bus with us?” I slurred.
He laughed and planted a kiss on my head. “You’re home, baby, let’s get you out of these slutty clothes and into some pajamas.”
He carried me through the house and up the stairs.
“Wait, wait.” I called when he deposited me on the bed and went to get my pj’s.
“What?” He stopped and turned toward me.
“You look nice.”
He smothered a laugh. “I do? You like my sweat pants and ratty t-shirt combo?”
“Mmmhmm. Except you could lose the pants, if you want.”
“You, my love, are very drunk.”
“Uh-uh, I’m just the right amount of drunk.” I shook my head and the world spun a bit.
“Be right back.”
I watched him go, my eyelids getting heavier.
The next time I opened my eyes, light was streaming in through the curtains and my head felt like it was going to explode. True to his word, Dillon had gotten me out of my slutty dress and finagled me into my pj’s.
The man in question was lying next to me on the bed, working on his computer. I rolled toward him and covered my face with a pillow.
“Morning, sunshine, how are you feeling?” I could hear the smile in his voice.
“All things considered, not as bad as I should. I think I consumed all of the alcohol in San Diego.”
