Blurb: Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this.
Evelyn Thomas’s plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man in her room, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.
One thing is certain, being married to one of the hottest rock stars on the planet is sure to be a wild ride.
Dude! I don’t know why but I loved this story! Drunken marriage in Vegas doesn’t usually appeal to me but for some reasons these characters called out to me is a visceral way. I believed it. Their wanting to work out the marriage. It was odd that I felt this way because I was never one to dive head first into a nearly insta-love book. But I loved it.
David was the tortured artist. Very classic character, and I really enjoyed watching his struggle with knowing his wife didn’t remember them getting married. He seemed truly upset. I will say that his emotional immaturity got on my nerves a bit, but he seemed to be aware of it and actively trying to resolve his issues. I liked how they got to know each other while not putting their very real chemistry on hold. That was one of the good parts of their story, kinda just going with how they felt. She was a little bit country, and he a little bit rock and roll. And it fit.
I liked the fact that Evelyn didn’t remember getting married to him but still realized that there was something there worth trying for. Most people would chalk that shit up to alcohol, but Ev felt for this person even though she didn’t remember him. She felt bad for inadvertently hurting his feelings with her memory loss. And she wanted to make sure he knew that it wasn’t intentional and she would try to not do it in the future.
And can I just say that while angry sex isn’t a turn on in the least, this author wrote it so well that I enjoyed reading about it. The climax was trope but again, it just seemed to fit. And I loved how slowly they got to know each other. It made everything seem more realistic. I am definitely going to be reading more in this series.
