One ring plus one wild night equals one crazy love

Sherry Robicheaux loves men. She loves love. And she loves an adventure. So when she meets a mysterious man while working backstage at a country music concert in Vegas, she’s all about what’s happened in Vegas staying there.

Country music superstar Tyler Blue just wants a weekend of anonymity…though there’s something about the spunky waitress with the streaks of purple hair that tempts him like no other. Until the next morning, when they both wake up with fuzzy memories…and rings on their fingers.

Convincing Sherry to maintain the ruse for his public image isn’t the hardest part—it’s reminding himself that their time spent playing husband and wife in her small town of Magnolia Springs can’t last. Tyler’s first love will always be music—and the road is no place for a sweet downhome girl.

For more purchasing options:

It isn't often that I read a book that makes me smile the whole way through and then, even a week later, makes me smile just thinking about! I adored this book – the characters were great, the writing was superb, and the story captured me from the first page.

So we have Sherry – wild child, addicted to love, crazy chica…at least according to everyone in town, including her family. But after yet another failed relationship, she thinks she has the perfect solution to get her love life on track – hang up her wild ways and settle down with someone boring. Of course one last weekend of crazy in Vegas is just what she needs before she settles down and puts her new plan in action.

And then we have Tyler – so focused on his music he doesn't have time for nor does he want any type of relationship. Heck, music is his life, and there is no room for anything but his music. He’s also tired of the fame game, with people only interested in Tyler Blue the musician, not Tyler Blue the man – so even dating or hooking up on tour just isn't something he’s really interested right now.

So when Sherry and Tyler’s paths cross and they spend a weekend in Vegas that leads them to waking up married – well, doesn't that just throw a monkey wrench in to both of their long term plans. Of course the fact that Sherry has no idea that the man she married was actually Tyler Blue the famous musician, and then Tyler’s record label deciding that his marriage is just what his image needs so a quickie divorce isn't really the best course of action…well let’s just say this sets the stage for an interesting arrangement and the groundwork for a fake marriage that just might have more to it than either Sherry or Tyler realizes.

I just loved watching Sherry and Tyler fight the wild attraction that existed between them, and although it was so frustrating watching them keep each other at arm’s length because it was the safe thing to do, it was also endearing to see just how sweet, thoughtful and considerate they were to one another – they really were just what the other needed. And poor Tyler…even though in hindsight they were just what these two needed to find their way to each other, Sherry’s rules were almost more than he could handle, especially the “no sex” one!
The world was already in love with his sass-mouthed caterer, calling Sherry a “down-home sweetheart” and after the photos of their kiss, the latest polls speculated on how long it would take until she’d be in the “family way.”

Fat chance of that happening, rules or not. But the nonstop talk only fed his memories of Vegas. And three nights of sliding past each other in the hall, and three days of sitting shoulder-to-shoulder on the sofa, ratcheted their sexual tension to the point of insanity. He was on two-a-day cold showers as it was; an entire night of breathing her sweet-scented skin, hearing her soft sighs near his ear might very well kill him.
And those post-it notes…***melting***…let’s just say if I found these on my bathroom mirror each day those rules would have been so out the window!

I totally loved this book and can’t wait to read more from Rachel Harris. I have not read the first two books in this series and don’t feel that I missed out on anything from not having some of the backstory on the other characters – of course I did go out and purchase the first two books in the series and will be reading them shortly. I look forward to catching up on this series and finding out whose story will be next!

I received a copy of this book from the publisher for an honest review.
