From Wall Street Journal bestselling author J.S. Scott.
A-list movie star and billionaire Julian Sinclair learned from past tragedy that life doesn't come with multiple takes. Now that he's figured out what he wants - in the lush form of redheaded Kristin Moore - he's got one chance to claim it. Between working as a medical assistant and filling in at her parents' bar, Kristin has no time for pleasure. So Julian is bringing her to his brother's Vegas wedding, where their mutual attraction can finally get a starring role.
What happened in Vegas has followed Kristin right back to Amesport, Maine. In the space of one magical weekend, the leading man in all her X-rated fantasies whisked her off to Sin City for breathtaking sex, followed by an "accidental" marriage she doesn't remember. Kristin fully expects Julian to demand a quickie divorce. But instead he's daring her to go all-in. To gamble everything on a love that might be too good to be true...or the best, wildest adventure of their lives.

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Julian Sinclair is a hot Hollywood star and he first kissed Medical Assistant Kristin in book 4 when he desperately tried to escape some frenzied fans.. and from then on he becomes fixated on 'getting to know' Kristin a whole lot more intimately. But these two are polar opposites and constantly verbally spar with each other - so how can Julian break through Kristin's prickly exterior she keeps just for him to see if there is something more between them. He thinks he'll get an opportunity at his brother's wedding to her best friend which is planned to take place in Las Vegas.. but Kristin is busy working trying to keep her parent's Bar/Grill afloat and isn't going. So what's a rich, sexy, charismatic Billionaire to do?.. well he pleads, teases, tempts.. and finally bodily removes Kristin from the Bar, tosses her into his waiting limousine and jets her off to Vegas.
At first Kristin doesn't believe Julian is serious as the two of them aren't friend and have been arguing and sniping at each other since their first meeting - so she just can't believe Julian's promises, pleas and pretty words. Julian has been mesmerized and tantalized by the stunning redheaded vixen since they were first introduced and it's now or never to tell her how he truly feels. Julian ignores Kristin's negativity, continually compliments her and bares his soul about his feelings.. but Kristin has a giant inferiority complex born from childhood bullying and doesn't think she's good enough for the super-rich talented famous Movie Star. However, for one wild night she's prepared to live the hilife, have a short taste of the dream and have hot sexy times with Julian.. but too much drink, mixed with sizzling chemistry, leads to a situation that neither of them predicted.. and that only one of them wants. So Julian asks for three months.. and a very reluctant Kristin doubts it'll last three days.
An easygoing light dual POV romance with smooth banter, sexy times and two very different people who manage to successfully fall in love with each other despite tempers, despite the odds, despite the heroine's anxieties and despite their difference. Julian is an open book when it comes to his emotions and feelings for Kristin.. he's loyal, attentive, kind, considerate, thoughtful, playful, passionate and totally in love with her. But, no matter what Julian says to her, how he acts around her and what he profoundly promises her, Kristin flately denies the possibility he could actually be telling the truth, that he could be happy with her in the long run and that he could be all hers.. until there's an eye-opening ultimatum. I did find Kristin's continual rejections, denials and doubts of Julian's heartfelt feelings quite frustrating as well as annoying - to the point where I wanted to give her a damn good shake. Good narration.
Worth a credit? Yes, a high quality romance.. but at $7.34 there was no need to use one as I just bought it and saved my credit for a higher priced book. It's been a great series so far and I can't wait to hear what emotional cocktail Ms. Scott has created for the unsociable and scarred Xander which should be coming next.
Yet again another fantastic story that had me gripped. I was in tears again with this storyline and I can't wait for the next book telling us the story of zander. J S Scott you tell such wonderful and moving stories please don't stop.
