A sexy celebrity stand alone romance by USA Today bestselling author, Jillian Dodd. 

Hollywood actress, Ashlyn Roberts, just had the worst week of her life. Her ex released a sex tape of them and just when she was convinced her current boyfriend was a keeper for standing by her side, he breaks up with her at a friend’s wedding. She’s planning to drown her sorrows in booze when she meets a sexy stranger as she’s leaving the wedding and they end up in Vegas, married.

Cash Crawford is offered a dream job working with his brother as a junior talent agent. He’ll put his shiny new law degree to good use and make a bunch of money in the process. His first task is simple: Keep Ashlyn Roberts out of trouble and don’t sleep with her.
Which might be kind of tough, since they definitely consummated their Vegas wedding.

Will this one night stand end in the quickie divorce they promised each other? Or will they realize they got lucky in love?

It’s been almost two years since I’ve read anything by Jillian Dodd, and I intrigued by this book whilst visiting a blogging friend. I always love a read about a one night stand that turns into accidentally getting married, so I was keen to try this new standalone read. It was a cute and enjoyable read that I devoured quickly.

As you may have read from the blurb, Ashyln’s life was a bit of a rollercoaster ride in the beginning. She’d already broken up with a boyfriend and her current guy acted like a jerk and then broke up with her at her best friend’s wedding. As she stormed out of the wedding with a bottle of champagne she ran into ‘Sexy’ and soon  ‘Sexy’ (him) and ‘Hotass’ (her) were jetting off to Vegas for a night of fun and end up getting hitched.

I enjoyed seeing Ashlyn and Cash together. Their night in Vegas was entertaining; they were both carefree, truthful with one another and made the best of the time they spent together. They both had regrets afterwards, but the wedding wasn’t one of them. When they crossed paths again, the attraction was still there, and they continued to get to know one another.

Ashlyn liked being treated like she mattered for a change; her life had been difficult and she put on a brave front when she was secretly trembling inside. She was too trusting for her own good at times, and soon found out who her real friends were. I liked seeing her bare her soul to Cash and how easily she grew to trust him. I didn’t like how she wouldn’t fight for herself though, she was quick to run from conflict instead of fighting for what she wanted.

Cash had been working at a top corporate law firm in Seattle, and had decided he needed a change and returned home to Southern California to take up a position working for his brother’s talent agency. Being a lawyer, I thought he’d know the basics, but certain details slipped past him that confused me a little. But he was a great character and always looked out for Ashlyn. He went above and beyond to fight for her, and did a lot of sweet things along the way.

If you are looking for a quick entertaining read I would definitely recommend Vegas Love. There’s a bit of drama introduced, and I liked the developing relationship between Ashlyn and Cash. Jillian Dodd has an easy to follow writing style and having alternating perspectives allowed me to see what they were both feeling and thinking. I hope that there are more stories from this world in the future, especially from Cash’s siblings! 

This guy know his way to a woman's heart!!

“Cash, I don’t just Vegas love you, I love you love you.”
I kiss her face, her cheek, and her forehead. Then I look her in the eyes and say, “I love you too. And as soon as I’m done showing you how much, I’m ordering you a pizza.”
“You do know how to sweet talk me,” she says then kisses me.

Jillian DoddThe Glitter: I admit it. I love anything sparkly, hot pink, or bright orange. I’m hoping to have a midlife crisis soon, so I can justify the purchase of a hot pink car with thick black racing stripes. I love to paint, doodle, draw, design interiors, rearrange furniture, cheer for my Huskers, cook, entertain, and shop for shoes. I’m addicted to diet coke, Donald Pliner shoes, reading, and buffalo wing popcorn.
