Feature and Giveaway: Stealing the Groom by Sonya Weiss


Friends don’t let friends marry the wrong woman…

Chad Walker may be a take-no-chances man with a plan, but there’s no way Amelia Snyder is going to let her best bud marry Mean Girl #1—even if the wedding is solely so he can secure the controlling shares in his family’s company. But free-spirited Amelia’s at-the-altar groomnapping scheme takes a surprising turn when she ends up as the blushing bride instead.

Suddenly, with Amelia living in her handsome husband’s home—in his bedroom, no less—she starts to reconsider their strictly platonic arrangement. But Chad’s always been anti-risk and definitely anti-love, and betting a lifetime of best friendship on the chance at forever might be the biggest gamble of all..

Purchase: | Amazon | B&N |


From the time she was a child, Sonya knew she was destined to be a writer. If she didn’t like the ending of a book or movie, she would write her own ending. When her children were young, she often wrote stories to entertain them. At the urging of one of her daughters, she submitted a short story and to her surprise and delight, it sold.

Sonya loves writing all things romance whether it’s writing contemporary adult or teen fiction and still hasn’t lost the wonder that she gets to do what she loves.

She enjoys reading, movies, chocolate, and laughter and credits her daughters as being the sweetest blessings in her life.

  2. I wanted to be a writer as a kid too, but I quickly realized I had no talent or real ambition for it.

    1. I think with a lot of people who want to write, it's something that can be learned. There was a funny quote some guy said about by the time he realized he had no talent, he couldn't quit because he was already famous LOL. But I don't know who said that.

  3. I loved reading that you would change the ending of the book you were reading if you didn't like the ending--I do that all the time! I find myself sometimes "rewriting" a scene or a sentence if I don't feel that it fits right. One of these days I'll get my act together and submit my own work! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity! Have an awesome day!

    1. I'm finding that rewriting endings is something a lot of writers do. I hope the best opportunities come your way when you do submit!

  10. Thanks for featuring the work of another author who is new to me. STEALING THE GROOM sounds great! Sonya, if you're reading this, would you please tell us one film for which you rewrote the ending and how you changed the outcome?

    1. Hi Katherine, there are a lot but I can name a few off the top of my head. The first one I ever rewrote was The Bodyguard. Loved the movie, hated the ending. The Pirates of the Caribbean one where Will Turner has to take the place of Davey Jones. There was a Jennifer Love Hewitt movie called "If Only" and I don't want to give it away but it's so darned hauntingly beautiful but the ending-too sad. I rewrote the ending of the final episode of the show Remington Steele too because the way it ended just wasn't satisfying to me as a fan.

    2. I definitely agree with your assessment of how Remington Steele wrapped!

  11. I can think of certain films or stories that I was unhappy with the ending too. Thanks for the contest!

    1. I don't know if there's any kind of data on which movies do best when they do give a satisfying ending, but I know a lot of people that hate it when a movie/show/book leaves the ending too sad or too open. I read a long book recently that was so good and then at the end, the heroine died. I felt so darned cheated after everything they'd been through.

    1. Thanks, Beth. I wanted to write a story that showed friends-to-more but with humor and a twist : - )

  13. I am interested to see how this plays out! And I can't handle bad endings in movies, either! I need my HEA!

    1. Sharlene, I know! It really bugs me to watch movies that don't end well. There was a Anne Hathaway titled "One Day" and I rooted for the couple the whole movie. The ending was so darned upsetting. I was glad that I'd rented that one instead of buying it first.
