What happens in Vegas doesn't always stay in Vegas in this "funny, sexy, sweet, laugh-out-loud romance" -- Harlequin Junkie from the New York Times bestselling author of Somebody Like You.
Cocktail waitress Sophie Dalton doesn't exactly have a life plan. She's perfectly happy being everyone's favorite party girl. But when a Las Vegas bachelorette party goes awry and an uptight businessman mistakes Sophie for a prostitute . . . well, Sophie wonders if it's time to reevaluate her priorities. Swearing off her thigh-high boots for good, Sophie slinks back home with damaged pride-and a jackpot of a hangover.
Yet what happens in Sin City doesn't always stay there. On a trip to Seattle to open a new office, Grayson Wyatt meets his latest employee-who turns out to be the same woman he recently called a hooker. Wealthy and gorgeous, Gray is a man used to getting what he wants. And it doesn't take long to figure out that smart, sassy, sexy Sophie is everything he's been looking for. As their late nights at the office turn into hot morning-afters, they realize their Vegas misunderstanding may lead to the real thing . . .
I really enjoyed this book a lot.I loved the complexity of the characters...much more interesting than so many novels I have read. The only criticism I have is that after a while I lost respect for our hero. I have been married for 47 years and met many men. This man seemed so weak to me. Perhaps it is because my husband is such a strong emotionally stable person but I would not have pursued a relationship with Grey. I would never know when he was going to fall apart and cave in to his fear. If there is anything women need today it is a husband who will be strong and faithful when things get tough because they will. I have a feeling that Sophie would have ended up being his mother.
“Make your heart HURT story....
Oh my, what an emotional roller coaster! For me, a perfect, 5 ⭐️ story must meet my personal “Enjoyment Qualification”;
1. A well told story, without multiple dead end characters
2. Tight Editing
While the Story itself was very well done, too many “editing potholes” ruined the flow, not allowing me to fully become immersed in the story.
Example: Sophie had the tie her sister gave to Gray thrown out she “....am buying a tie for Gray Wyatt him.” That is a huge clunker! Also, after the picnic, Gray laments Sophie’s request for a fire since “...you’re sitting here in shorts and sandals” but the next he ‘removes her jeans’.
Grammatical errors are easy to fix-every writing software has Grammar Check as well as Spell Check. Storyline consistency is just as important as spell & grammar check.
While yes, I’d recommend this to a friend, I would also warn them of the many missed editing errors.
Had there been no more than 2, it wouldn’t be as much of a issue. But, every third chapter I was knocked out of enjoyment of a good story by “editing potholes”.
Dreamspinner Press is the worst when it comes to proper editing.
could not relate, didn’t even want to...
this book enraged me. first off, sophie is irritating and obnoxious to the point where i cannot imagine any reader identifying with her in any real way. gray acts as though he has undiagnosed asperger's in the first half of the book, then suddenly a switch flips in the second half. the plot was lacking, and the tension obviously fixable, if not for the incredibly stupid main characters (who apparently went to stanford and northwestern. really?). this book spent a whole lot of time making sure i knew sophie was thoroughly unlikable and appallingly childish, and i found myself frequently checking to see how much of it i had left to read. as someone who finds it incredibly hard to walk away from a book in progress (or even skip a page), i found myself skimming much more often than i normally do, even with a book i’m not fond of. editing was distracting at times: there were extra or missing words in multiple sentences, and once a character was called by a different name. i’ve read “isn’t she lovely” and “broken” by lauren layne. each were leaps and bounds better than this one, but i doubt i’ll be reading another one of hers.
