The Ramirez Bride Summary
Nick Ramirez built his massive wealth in a single generation and is dead set against marriage. He is an arrogant but handsome man who insists marriage is an act of folly that reduces one’s assets.
Tess was determined to keep her relationship with Nick strictly professional. However, she couldn’t resist the temptation and took just one bite of the forbidden fruit.
Nick regrets the impulsive love affair and never made another personal approach… Now, months later, Nick appears again—has he found out about the secret Tess has been keeping from him?MU
The Ramirez Bride features a love story between Nick and Tess. Apparently Nick’s father never cares for him, which greatly affects him.
His mother keeps jumping between guys, always changing Nick’s last name. He basically never receives the love of a father.
There’s a reason why Nick suddenly wants marriage and all that, but it’s such a cliché plot point it just blends together with the rest of all novels and manga series.
The actual manga is very confusing at the start. We’re jumping back and forth between scenes, trying to establish some type of groundwork and coherency. Sadly it’s not accomplished, which leaves us questioning exactly what the hell is going on.
It’s obvious they want us to sympathies with Nick and his history, but it does very little to pull our heartstrings.
Nick’s mother, Nadia, is for the lack of better words a gold-digger. It’s implying her behaviour is greatly affecting Nick for the worse, making him hate marriage.
Of course, with the introduction of Tess and her baby, Zack, he wants a new shot at being a dad! So far so good, I guess. I’m not loving the story but it’s not one of the worse ones I’ve read.
So overall, not sure I’m a huge fan of this one but it’s overall quite interesting. There are many more harlequin stories available, so one should suit your tastes if not this one does!
Recommendation: Might be worth checking out if you like harlequin romance novels.
