What I meant to do in Vegas: Let my hair down for once and celebrate winning a medal at my first women's hockey all-stars competition.
What I actually did: Got senior prom drunk and woke up married to Brooklyn's star winger, the great Neil Drake.
He's the heir to a billion dollars, and I barely survived my childhood. Our friendship is based strictly only on hockey, takeout food and smack talk.
And now holy matrimony. Although we both know it can't last, especially once his evil family gets wind of our Vegas shenanigans...
Contains: Meddling teammates, meddling parents, ugly jewelry and a pretend-kiss that nearly sets the world on fire.
A new book in Sarina Bowen's USA Today bestselling series!
I loved this book! Seriously, I have loved all of the books written by Sarina Bowen that I have read so far and I am convinced that she can do no wrong at this point. I loved the drunk accidental wedding set up and it didn’t take long for Charli and Neil to win me over. This book was filled with great characters, fantastic chemistry, and a little humor that came together to steal my heart.
Charli and Neil are both professional hockey players. Charli didn’t grow up with much and has to work very hard just to get by since women hockey players don’t make a lot of money. Neil grew up in a very wealthy family but that doesn’t mean that his family doesn’t have its own challenges. When they wake up in bed together in Vegas, neither is happy to learn that they are legally married. They decide to move in together and stay married just long enough for Charli to play an important role in Neil’s family.
I loved these two together! Charli has never really had anyone looking out for her and is fiercely independent. Neil likes Charli just the way she is and is eager to support her in whatever way he can. The chemistry between these two was off the charts and there was enough heart in the book to keep things very interesting. They both seemed to really come alive in the scenes when they were together and I loved the way that they were able to lift each other up.
Jason Clarke and Vanessa Edwin did a fantastic job with the narration. I think that both of these narrators did a wonderful job in bringing the characters to life and I love the emotion that they added to their reading. I felt like their voices worked very well together and the transitions between narrators felt very natural. I feel like their performance added to my enjoyment of this wonderful story.
I would highly recommend this book to others. This book is part of Sarina Bowen’s Brooklyn series but it can easily be read as a stand-alone. I was eager to see Charli and Neil find their happily ever after and enjoyed every moment of this audiobook.
I received a digital review copy of this book from the author/publicist.
