Marital Status: Victim, Vegas wedding mix-up
Action Required: Divorce, ASAP
After one night of tequila and sex, their impromptu Vegas wedding shouldn’t be valid. But Meredith Chandler-Harris just discovered she’s still tied to irresistible businessman Jason Lynhurst. She needs out of their marriage, but to become his company’s new CEO, he needs her as a bride. Let the newlywed games begin.
Meredith has firm plans for her future—Invest in her sister’s bridal gown business so they can work equally toward making their small company a success. But to do that, Meredith first needs to ask her father to front her the money she so desperately need. This is where Meredith hits a snag. Two years earlier on a trip to Vegas, she met and married Jason, a sexy man who’d lost his way. They parted company after Vegas without filing the paperwork therefore not legitimizing their marriage. However – it seems as though some kind soul did that for them as Meredith receives news from her father’s lawyer that she is indeed married. This spells trouble for Meredith as her father will never trust Meredith with his money after such reckless behavior.
After hunting down Jason who is now a major player in the fashion world, Meredith feels certain she can get a quiet divorce and her family will be none the wiser, but Jason has other plans.
When Meredith turns up as Jason’s office, she jams a spanner in the works, losing Jason a key supplier. Jason has a plan to make sure that his business can still grow, but it involves staying married just a little longer.
I really enjoyed this book. The main characters were both likeable and charming. Meredith comes across as a little full on at times, but ultimately she is sweet and down to earth. Jason’s ideas about marriage at first did have me baffled, but as the book went on his opinions shift as his feelings for Meredith grow.
I did find, at times, that there was a little too much narrative between conversations, too much inner thought meaning by the time the conversation continued, I found myself flicking back to find out what the last line of dialogue was.
I really enjoyed Meredith’s undercover work at Jason’s sisters fashion house and I truly sympathized with her when she started her first day wearing the incorrect label.
All in all this is a really well written tale of two lovers finding their way back to each other and it snagged my attention right from the first chapter. There are sweet moments, hot moments, and times where I laughed out loud. A truly great book.
