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?

Liezel’s Thoughts:

I find it mind-boggling that I have more than half of Jillian Dodd’s books on my Kindle App for months yet “Vegas Love” is the first book  of hers that have read so far.  I have no idea why I overlooked  her stories. If I had known just how terrific her writing was, I would have added them to my “go-to” list when needing something light and entertaining a long time ago.

“Vegas Love” is about a Hollywood starlet named Ashlyn Roberts whose life is on the brink of spiraling out of control. In fairness, most of it isn’t her fault, rather, it is the people around her that are making her life unbearable. The past months consisted nothing but continuous frustrations and setbacks. One really couldn’t blame her for wanting to be spontaneous especially if it was happening in Sin City and involved one Cash Crawford.

If you’ve read the synopsis you know exactly what occurs while in Vegas. At first I was a bit taken aback with just how far Ashlyn was willing to go to obtaining her fun and I questioned her judgement repeatedly but then as the story moved along I realized that everything happened for a reason. Her spontaneity could have ruined her but instead, it was a God send and I was relieved that Jillian Dodd was able to manipulate a potentially disastrous situation into something  opposite.

What I loved most about the book was witnessing just how compatible the couple were. From the very beginning, their chemistry was spectacular. The real question was if it would stay that way after the novelty wore off and, sure enough, the author didn’t disappoint in that aspect either. It has been proven that they were meant to be together. I can definitely see this  couple   standing  the test of time.

Another thing that I appreciated was the supporting characters. Even if they were briefly mentioned in this story, their character caught my attention and I can’t wait to spend time immersing myself  in their world too.

The Verdict:
