Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this. Evelyn Thomas' plans for celebrating her 21st birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man in her room, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.One thing is certain, being married to one of the hottest rock stars on the planet is sure to be a wild ride.

I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
First, I read this book on my kindle app and I decided to try it in audio. Either way, the story held my attention and I really enjoyed this 1st book in the series. This book begins with Evelyn going out for her 21st birthday, she wants to get a little wild, have a little fun. So she goes to Vegas with her best friend. The last thing she remembers is taking shots after midnight... the next morning she wakes up with a ring on her finger and a tattoo on her ass. And she can't remember a damn thing. Evelyn has her life mapped out. Getting married to a rockstar she just met on her 21st birthday is not part of that plan. David isn't happy that Evelyn doesn't remember anything. He married her for a reason, he fell for her right away, and now he doesn't know what to do about it. It’s a pretty messed up situation. Once the media catches wind of this its even more crazy. Eve and David go away for a bit to get away from the crowds and decide what to do. To divorce or not to divorce... that is the question. While at David’s home away, the couple starts to get to know one another. Evelyn realizes that she really likes David. She may even be falling for him. She is afraid to tell him her feelings. David still feels hurt and betrayed that Evelyn remembers nothing of their night together. One thing is pretty obvious... they both want each other.
Once they go back to LA, everything changes. There are a lot of issues, miscommunications etc. Things get screwed up. It’s a little heart breaking. David & Eve spend some time apart.
Just a touch of drama and angst, but not overkill. A wonderful rockstar book that will keep a smile on your face!
Within the first 40 minutes of this audio I was chuckling and laughing hard. Needless to say I kept going for the entire book. Very few authors get me so caught up in a book that I just want more so this was a nice bonus. I shall definitely be searching for more Kylie Scott books. I think Andi Arndt was perfect for this book. The combination of author and narrator is a big deal for me. I would rather read text than listen to a horrible narration. I will definitely be trying other books narrated by Andie Arndt as well. I am sure this will be a book I can listen to over again on those days when I can't find anything I like on audible!
I did not read the print version, the audio version was awesome!
Although I have read other rockstar love stories, Lick, was far better.
I was not impressed with her narration, especially when in the beginning it states that David had a deep voice but yet he sounded anything but.
I did listen to this book all in one sitting.
This book does not have a vast amount of devastating, emotional ups and downs, but it draws you in and keeps interested through out. It is a lovey story and well worth a credit.
I don't really want to use the same old words to describe this listen.... like touching, tender, romantic, passionate, hot, heartbreaking, captivating and enjoyable and it's not because it wasn't all those things but it's because it was oh so much more. This very well written, often funny and richly described plot told of a love story that reached great highs and bitter lows of emotion. From the cast of characters, the couple's budding romance, the loving hot sex scenes, the intense betrayal, the heartbreaking break-up to the first tentative steps to a HEA, it was simply beautiful, a joy to listen to and the close connection you felt towards the H/H's bitter-sweet story will stay with you long after the book is finished.
So, IMHO, before you start this listen (if possible) I suggest you clear your schedules, have a Take Out menu handy, give the remote and the dog lead to your other half (if you have one), arrange sleepovers for your kids, turn your phone off, just ignore anything else that may pop-up and then..... just sit back, close your eyes, picture each scene and enjoy the show.
Worth a credit? Errr..... that would be a Marching Band, Acrobats, Whistles, Jugglers, Balloons and lots of Floats each displaying a 7 ft high flashing neon sign saying YES.
this is a must read. great story. you will not be disappointed. This author is going on my favorites list.
Olivia Cunning's series *One night with sole regret and *Sinners on tour.
Are some other great rock band reads. Life of ups and downs. And ups!
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Imagine waking up married to a sexy rock star. I don't want to spoil the story for anyone but it is quite a ride. I enjoyed it and I do plan to get the other books in the series. It captured my interest fom the beginning to end. So if you want to meet a new band, with three other unattached members whose stories we can look foward to; discover what happens after the Vegas wedding with this couple and all the "mess" they have to work through; if your a fan of rock star books; if you just like a good romance..LOL Then I think you'll like this book. It was a credit well spent.
I found the writing a bit stale with very little kick. It could have had a more balanced diet of details rather than blank memory loss and you were real to me BS. Boring personalities is what lost my attention.
Driven, has been my next listen and have been more interested in the persona of the correctors enough I want to know what the details of the main guy's baggage is.
It was her voice that brought what life the story had to my attention, so it wasn't her fault the book didn't win me over.
Waking up married to a rock star was an entertaining story line and enough to catch my interest along with the reviews.
Not for this book, wont be reading the others that come after it either.
Good girl Evelyn Thomas woke with a 5-carat ring on her finger. Whatever happened, she can't remember. But apparently she married David Ferris, one of the members of rock band Stage Dive AND got a tattoo of his name on her butt.
The horrors of alcohol!
Well David and Eve decide to spend some time together and get to know each other since they have this easy banter. Eve moves up to David's home in Monterrey and they have a blissful 5 days, until real life comes crashing in. I mean, what do they really know about each other? Their lives are so different. Evelyn wants to be an architect (or so she says) and David travels a lot with Stage Dive. Will this new romance work?
I am so glad that I listened to this book. I normally detest rocker romances, but this one was sweet. The hero and heroine had interesting back stories and their chemistry was intense. They were good for each other and I liked that something in them recognized it, even though they didnt know how to fight for it. It was sweet, emotional and slightly angst. But best of all, there was healing towards the end, with people facing their past and making better decisions to pursue their own dreams and happiness.
I've always liked to read. But I've become addicted to Audible and average 5 or 6 books a week. But everybody has at least one vice right?
I picked this book to read after breezing through the new Patrica Briggs novel. I admit I bought it for just something to read while waiting for the next book I wanted to be released and really wasn't expecting a lot... But I was surprised. Really surprised in a great way. I loved the characters. I loved the story....it was funny and smart.. It was sexy without being too much...in fact it worked perfectly with the story.
I felt hopeful for these two people and even though they both made a few mistakes you still stayed invested in their story and wanted them to work it out. Plus I suppose everyone at one time or another has wondered what it would be like to go from a normal life to being on the inside of celebrity. I think this story showed the good and the bad side of public life equally.
The narrator was great. She did an excellent job with the voices. This was a great book. Good enough that I'll be reading the next two. One of which gets released in April and the other in July. It's worth a credit.
My favorite things are my family and my books! Depending on the day, not in that order. :)
This was one of the best books I've listened to! The narrator was fun, engaging and I loved her voice transition from one character to the other. The story itself was WONDERFUL. Guy meets girl, get pissed off when they get married in Vegas and she doesn't remember because she was trashed, they try to make it work, but he has issues......Good start to the book, right? Right! The story line isn't as easy as that though. The characters are well developed and leave you wanting to learn more about them. The insecurities that the characters have make them believable.
Going to get the next book now.....can't wait to see what happens to Mal. :)
