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. Half an empty box of glow in the dark condoms.
What the hell just happened?
What happens when a romance author meets a divorce lawyer and they both get sloppy drunk? Who knows, because they can’t remember anything from the night before prior to waking up naked and in bed together. This is where GET LUCKY starts and it’s from here the fun really begins. Julia is the romance author in love with love and all things sci-fi, and she’s in Las Vegas for a book convention. Nate is the down-with-love divorce lawyer who’s in Las Vegas for his best friend’s wedding. When they meet, it’s hate at first sight thanks to Nate’s surly attitude and judgmental behaviour. But as the day wears on, their paths continue to cross as his friends and her friends become one big group determined to experience all the city has to offer.
If Mr. Darcy was a modern man with a rolling suitcase, a stick shoved way up his ass, and no actual redeemable qualities, he might be this guy.
GET LUCKY is told in dual POVs and is a stand-alone. Think of The Hangover, just with a lot more female involvement. It’s told in present tense but does include flashbacks of their night together as they try to figure out exactly what they got up to. I liked both Nate and Julia and thought they made an interesting couple, only because they seemed so different: Nate’s sullen, closed off and serious, while Julia is happy, open and carefree. Julia’s quirky inner monologue was a bit much in the beginning, but I noticed it died down a lot as I got closer to the end. You could almost call GET LUCKY a second-chance romance, given that they spend the whole night together falling in like, but then don’t remember their feelings the next morning. When they have to spend the next day together figuring out what they did, they fall in like all over again. Overall, I thought this was a fun and enjoyable read that had a really cute ending.
