One night. That's all it took and Natalie Bowman finds herself married to a professional hockey player.
Vegas - the city of sin and indulgence. She goes to forget about Bruce - the ex that cheated on her after ten years together - and have fun. It's not the city of romance, true love, or commitment, and she doesn't expect it to be.
And yet, Natalie finds herself with a hangover, a ring on her finger, a new husband who looks like Thor fell from the sky himself.
Now, Natalie is confronted with the fact that she's known Chris for a few hours, and she's suddenly his wife. She should walk away - but it's so easy to fall into his arms, and she's finding she doesn't really want to leave.

It's supposed to be a business transaction, nothing more. Because Christopher Worthington, third line winger for the Newport Beach Seagulls, needs this marriage to save his reputation. At least, that's what his agent insists.
But it's hard to remember that when she makes him feel something he's never felt before with anyone.
Letting his guard down is dangerous. Natalie is dangerous, the worst kind of temptation.
Now, Chris must decide if Natalie is worth believing in happily ever after when he's known nothing but heartbreak.

Great addition to the series!
This is book 8 in The Slapshot series and it features Chris Worthington, third line left winger for the Newport Beach Gulls hockey team, and Natalie Bowman. This is a very quick insta-like/love romance. Just remember that what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas as these two soon find out. But their compatibility takes them off guard.
This story line was serious but fun and is just what you’d expect from this fabulous author. This is a great addition to a fantastic series!
Chris and his team had just won hockey’s championship, the Stanley Cup, for the first time in the team’s history and they headed to Las Vegas to celebrate. Natalie had just broken up with her long term boyfriend and when her ex started making ridiculous demands, she decided to join a group of friends going to Las Vegas for a bachelorette party. Chris runs into Natalie at a bar and joins her friends and he and Natalie drink heavily celebrating. The next morning they wake up with little memory of the night before but they are wearing rings. How will they handle finding out that they are married?
I enjoyed this story with 2 people who went to Las Vegas to celebrate and ended up drinking too much and making a drunken mistake. They had to decide how they would handle the situation and it was fun reading about them trying to figure out what to do next.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Others are better
Writing felt very different from the other books in the series. Almost as though this book was written by a high schooler. Lack of flow and character development.
