What happens in Vegas…When Georgie discovers that her fiancé has been cheating on her, only a few days before her cousin’s wedding, her whole world explodes. Facing a romantic trip to Vegas alone, she decides to go out and have some fun…

…but Georgie never expected to wake up wed! And even worse, she can’t remember who to. So when gorgeous Jack reveals himself as her husband, she can’t believe her luck – he’ll act as the perfect wedding date!

Even if it is their very accidental honeymoon, surely the newlyweds can keep their emotions in check for just a few days more?
Don’t miss the laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from Portia MacIntosh, author of It’s Not You, It’s Them. Perfect for fans of Rosie Blake, Sophie Kinsella and Lindsey Kelk.

I picked up this book on a whim today and read it in one sitting- clearly, I really enjoyed it! It’s been a while since I have picked up a chick lit book and once again, this book reaffirmed why I love this genre in the first place. For one, the books are light and fluffy. There isn’t too much drama, and the drama that is has is well placed and adds a little pizzazz to the book. Secondly, the characters are adorable and so much fun to hang with. I love down to earth and relatable characters, and this is what you get from chick lit novels. Finally, the covers. I love a great chick lit cover, and it not only draws me to the book but also makes me excited to read it! A lot can be said for book covers as they give you a little bit of a view in terms of what you’ll get in the story and that’s exactly what this cover does.

With that, this is a GREAT novel. It’s light, funny, and features characters that I wouldn’t mind befriending had they been real. Georgie is down on her luck as she just caught her fiance cheating on her. So in order to make her night in Vegas a night to remember (or forget what the cheating bastard did to her) she befriends a man named Jack. After one too many drinks things happen though. And those things include a wedding ring, marriage licence, and a hangover from hell. 

Thankfully, this little snafu had some good to it as Georgie and Jack won 20k gambling and Georgie has every intention of sharing half of it with Jack. However, he needs to do a tiny little favor for her. One that includes being her fake fiance so her family doesn’t realize that man she was set to marry is a lying, cheating scumbag… 

What ensues when these two embark in wedded bliss is hilarious and downright fun! Readers who like a book with a little adventure and a family that will make you thankful for your own will love this one! I am so glad I picked up my first Portia Macintosh novel and can’t wait to read more by her in the near future!!
