Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this.
Evelyn Thomas’s plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure as hell never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.
One thing is for certain, being married to rock and roll’s favourite son is sure to be a wild ride.

What am I missing? Everyone seemed to love this book but for me it was highly improbable. For some reason the new craze in the NA genre is Vegas themed and along that theme line, there is a girl who gets drunk and a man who isn’t nearly as drunk and somehow the two get married and somehow they stay married throughout the “getting to know you stage” and then into the “happily ever after stage” WTF? Besides this Vegas wedding that Evelyn doesn’t seem to remember I felt like I was reading this book through a weed filled haze. I didn’t know what was going, when anything was happening and where all the drama came from.
The biggest downside to this book for me was my inability to connect to the characters. I know where Evelyn was coming from in terms of her feelings and her “plan” and her only had sex once but didn’t like it and it hurt and I don’t want to do it again to I’m a nympho but only when David’s around.
I had no idea where David’s mind was at but for a 28-year-old rock star he sure was sensitive…
Now, them together, I don’t understand. I don’t know what, other than a drunken marriage in Vegas and less than 6 days in Monterey alone, most of which consisted of beating up men and rough sex constitutes as “I’m in love with this person.” Their connection just wasn’t there for me, I didn’t feel the “love” and I felt like reading/finishing this book was more a chore than a pleasure, which is never fun.
First and probably –but not discounting the possibility– last book of Kylie Scott’s that I will read.
