What happens when you wake up in a hotel suite next to a gorgeous naked man with absolutely no memory of the past twelve hours?
I guess it's true what they say. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.
Or at least I hope it stays here. The Romantic Style convention was meant to be a weekend of raucous fun with friends, sun, and enough poolside margaritas to forget about my ex. But now, instead of meeting my fans and signing books, I'm stuck with cocky divorce lawyer Nate Wexler. He's arrogant, infuriating, and I can't keep my hands off of him. Judging by the state of our hotel room, last night was wild. I just wish I could remember it.
A pair of matching tattoos. A cheap wedding veil. A half empty box of glow in the dark condoms.
What the hell just happened?
What did I love about the book?
First of all, Julia. Julia’s inner monologues are hilarious! She’s such a geek. It was such a hoot to read The Doctors sparring in her mind. And the fandom references in general. She’s such a funny person.
“But I’m a hobbit. We believe in second luncheon.”
“If I were writing this in a book, I would’ve had the happy ending nailed down tight on the final page, it’s true. There would’ve been a definite proposal, a serious assurance to the reader that this is forever…”
“If Mr. Darcy was a modern man with a rolling suitcase, a stick shoved up his ass, and no actual redeemable qualities, he might be this guy.”
But still. It was amusing to see the similarities. Nate brushes her off based on a first impression. Soon, he notices her good points, and is drawn by her laugh and sense of humor. Yada yada yada. Happy ending. I love it! Haha
The adventure. It was so entertaining to see what happened to the two the night before and what happened to make them remember it all. Matching tattoos? Russian mob? Getting stranded in the middle of nowhere? Dancing in the Bellagio fountain…in the nude? Crazy hot sex? Elvis Presley impersonator? Yup. It’s all here.
Their back stories. I love how un-dramatic it was. I mean, divorce and break up are pretty dramatic things, but they’re normal. They can happen to anyone. I love it!
Meredith. Gosh. She has such a potty mouth! People would constantly give her the stink eye if she’s here where I’m from, but we all know she wouldn’t give a flying fuck anyway.
Last but not the least, Nate. At first, like my dear Mr. Darcy, Nate is a sullen man with a perpetual pole lodged up his ass. He judges people on the spot and looks at them in disdain if they don’t reach his expectations. But soon—with a little help from booze—he lightens up and shows Julia his playful and sweeter side. It helps that he’s sex on a stick. 😉
I don’t know if it’s obvious that I loved the book, but if in case it’s not, I loved it! It’s my first Lila Monroe book, but it definitely would not be my last.
