Her first thought: “Who are you?”

It’s the morning after her cousin’s bachelorette party in Vegas and Megan Scott wakes up with the mother of all hangovers. Even worse, she’s in a stranger’s penthouse having woken up with something else as well – a funny, arrogant, sexy…husband!

Up until now, finding even a boyfriend had seemed impossible – been there, got the broken heart, sworn off men for good. Then a few martinis with Carter…no, Connor Reed and she’s gone from first meet to marriage in one night!

Megan wants a lawyer. But Connor’s shocking bombshell?

“I don’t want a divorce.”

 

 

This should have been a 4-5 star read but there were a few draggy moments that pulled the rating down.

For the most part…this is a rather cute story about finding the love of your life when you aren’t looking for it. The H/h meet in Vegas and wake up married…but that’s just the beginning.

Both characters have major hangups left over from childhood that has made forming permanent romantic relationships difficult (if not impossible). Watching them learn to trust and enjoy each other was a delight.

What started to feel flat for me was the constant effort by the heroine to “show her worst moments” so that she could run the hero off. It happened…two times to many for my personal enjoyment.

The other thing that pissed me off was the final Big Mis.:

BIG ASS SPOILER/RANT TO FOLLOW. DO NOT READ THIS. ALSO, VULGAR LANGUAGE

WFT! I hate it…HATE it when a woman breaks up with a man in order to make him miss her. That is the dumbest fucking shit I have ever heard of! You need to learn to COMMUNICATE, bitch. If you are having issues but love the man…you better sit his ass down and explain to him your malfunction. But if your ass is dumb enough to break up with the man you love without explanation (so he can see what he’s missing)…please expect that some other woman will recognize the prize you set free and snap him up!

So that whole scene with Caro doing the ex-gf thing of crying and being a total bitch in public to embarrass & hurt Megan was…unwelcome and total BS. I wanted to slap her and tell her that this was a learning experience for her. Next time put on your big girl panties and speak the fuck up.

BIG ASS SPOILER/RANT TO OVER. ALSO, VULGAR LANGUAGE OVER, TOO

So, the Big Mis. was a FAIL for me.

But DAMN I loved the ending! HAWT and romantic! Plus I love the fact that her back biting cousin and friends saw that gorgeous man in love with Megan.
