Publisher's Summary

Marrying a stranger tops the list of things you should never do in Las Vegas, but I did it anyway.  

The entire night was my idea. I was the one who suggested a wake-up-with-a-tiger kind of night. Instead, I woke up with a ring on my finger and Vince Rossi in my bed.  

Vince was nothing like I thought he was and everything I never knew I needed. Suddenly I was falling head-over-heels in love with my accidental husband and the idea of ending this union was the last thing I wanted.  

I wanted forever. So what if we barely knew each other? Statistically speaking, our odds were as good as anyone’s.   

Until the annulment papers landed on my doorstep....

Hillarious!!

Jana did so good with Payton and Vince's story!! I was laughing my butt off from chapter one! I am pretty sure Payton is my new spirit animal! <3 I mean there were times where her young age came out and had me wanting to slap the silly out of her but that is one of the things I love about her, she owned it all! Vince is so mysterious and normally I would have hated not having his POV throughout but I was pleasantly surprised to have the epilogue in his POV! it was AWESOME!!! it made everything come together for me and I was just sooo happy in the end!
Erin Mallon is the freaking queen narrator IMO and she did amazing! she was brought Payton to life better than anyone else could have! loved everything about this story!

HILARIOUS!

What a crazy ride. The heroine is a hoot and complete goof, with her heart in the right place, and no filter between her brain and her mouth. Very lighthearted and fun story. 😂

Playful and fun, but missing something vital

I’ll preface this by stating that I love all of Jana Aston’s books. Her ability to make readers/listeners laugh while truly feeling something is phenomenal. I also love both Erin Mallon and Jason Clarke. They are two of my absolute favorite narrators. That being said, I wanted more Vince than just the Epilogue. Payton was funny, wild, and charming, but I kept feeling like there were missing pieces of the story. Vince’s emotional development would have been a beautiful addition, not to mention that, as the reader, I always look forward to knowing a little something extra before the other characters in the story do. While I loved Vince, I didn’t get to know him in the way that I did with Jennings and Luke and Kyle...and all the rest of the wonderfully enigmatic males in Jana’s others books.
In all, I enjoyed the story, but I’m sure, like other followers of Jana, it would be a treat to have some Vince bonus material.

Hilarious!!!

2nd read My re-read was done through audible. Narrator Erin Mallon killed it with these characters. I loved this just as much the second time as I did the first. That ending was swoon worthy!

1st read I absolutely loved Good Time!!! I just really love quirky characters who can make me bust out laughing. Payton had me rolling so many times reading this book. She's the very definition of quirky and little bit insane. I loved her. This girl was a riot.

Payton isn't going to be everyone's cup of tea because she is that silly kind of quirky and I know not everyone can appreciate that. I mean, this girl made up her own vocabulary when she couldn't find the right words she needed. I legiterally want to use them myself...and I just did and that made me happy. :)

I also really liked how bold Payton was in her sexuality. It's pretty refreshing to read a heroine who isn't afraid to ask for sex and one that has no shame with their body. Saying that, you don't see her with any other man but the hero in this book. There is no other women or men drama. It was just a fun, happy book that I truly enjoyed.

Vince. This man surprised me. I really didn't know what to expect going in and I really like what I learned about him. The whole book is in Payton's POV except the Epilogue. Despite that, the author did a great job of expressing Vince. As much as I enjoyed Payton's actions, I doubly enjoyed Vince's reactions. I gotta admit, Vince had me swooning there at the end. I wasn't expecting the big romance in this, but it's there and it hit in a big way.

If everything I said in this review sounds like something you would enjoy, then I highly recommend you read this book. You will have a good time!

It's a real GOOD TIME

I picked up this book knowing it would be a Good Time (I know you see what I did there). I just knew because Jana Aston always makes me laugh. ALWAYS. And she did not disappoint. Seriously. There wasn't a single thing wrong with this book. In fact, everything that could go right, went right.

And I don't think anyone could do a better job of bringing our Payton to life quite like Erin Mallon. She's the only person who could do her justice. And I love her for it.

Payton is the friend of our Good Girl, Lydia. You remember her, right? She found love with our favorite Rhys. Payton was the crazy friend. Is the crazy friend. The kind of friend you wish you had. Especially when you get inside her head.

Which is what you get here. Payton is the funniest heroine I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. And I've met some crazy ladies in my time. But Payton is just so much fun and endearing and there's a small part of me that is just as crazy so I can totally relate to her brand of nuts.

And don't even get me started on Vince. Vince in Good Girl was a bit mysterious and had that whole "I run a strip club" thing about him.
But Vince in Good Time is just all the things. He's my number two Aston man. And I think that's because I'm stubborn and I'll never let Sawyer go. But let's talk about Vince....

Just, yes please! I'll take one sexy, broody, intense, intelligent man. I'll take him to-go. I'll take him for now. And I'll take him forever. Till death do us part.

You will too. You'll want a Vince all for yourself. But unfortunately I've already claimed him so you'll just have to bow out now.

Very Enteratining

Couldn't stop listening, so entertaining, humorous dialog. Jana Aston writes an enjoyable, (minimum drama), story and Erin Mallon is a great narrator for the main character.

LOVED!

I 'legiterally' had such a GOOD TIME listening to this that I am already trying to see when I can fit in listening again, because this is a book I have to repeat when I need a silly, giggly, fun time. I absolutely LOVED Good Girl by Jana Aston, and I loved GOOD TIME even more.

“He looks like just my type. Tall, dark, handsome and hung.”

Payton is the crazy best friend. You know how the virgin always has the kinda wild and slutty friend? Well, that’s Payton, but she is a crazy hot mess and she is 'legiterally' hysterical. Then there is Vince.

"Vince is delicious. Vince is every inappropriate fantasy I’ve ever had wrapped up into one perfect package."

They are complete opposites, but one drunken Vegas night and you know what happens to drunk people in Vegas! They were complete opposites attract, but I love how he loved her crazy. He was completely entertained by her when you think he’d be appalled.

“We could make out behind that pinball machine.”
“I don’t think that would work.”
“Why not?”
“Because the pinball machine is not an invisibility cloak and public fornication is illegal in Las Vegas.”
“Oh, my God. You’re a dirty talker! This is so much more than I deserve. Say fornication again.”

And even though we didn’t really get much of Vince’s POV, I loved him.

“I’m not sure that you understand the concept of negotiating.”
“Fine. What do I have that you want?”
“Everything.”

I will definitely say this book isn’t for everyone. There will be the haters that say “WTF did I just read? That chick is bonkers!” YES! I feel the same but in a GOOD way! If you aren’t a fan of the over-the-top crazy and fun girl, maybe this isn’t for you. But if you like to laugh and you like the crazy, Good Time by Jana Aston is a MUST READ.

Likes:

•I laughed out loud so many times!
•Payton’s complete lack of filter.
•She wasn’t a virgin and was just fine with casual sex.
•They were such opposites, but they totally worked.
•I loved every side character, and I hope we get a few of their stories.
•Her stream of consciousness style of writing.
•The way the 3rd wall is knocked down and she speaks directly to the reader.
•The epilogue.

Dislikes:

•The first half was a bit slower than the second because we were mostly in her head.
•I wish we had a bit more of Vince’s POV while reading, but in the end, it all worked out.

The Narration:
Erin Mallon was perfect for this. Her comedic timing was spot-on and she did crazy so well! Plus I absolutely LOVE her male voice more than most male narrators. I think that the narration made it even funnier than just reading would have.

The Down & Dirty:
I completely and ‘legiterally’ loved this crazy ride. I loved Good Girl, but I loved Good Time even more. I for sure need to go back and read more of Jana’s back catalog because I absolutely love her humor and her skill at getting you right into the heroine’s crazy thoughts. I honestly don’t usually enjoy such young characters most of the time (though the guys are older in this series) but in this case, it was part of the charm. This kind of book isn’t for everyone. If you don’t like the over-the-top funny or crazy heroine, it may not be for you. But if you love to laugh, if you love silly and slightly immature (like me), then grab Good Time fast, because you don't want to miss it. It’s even better if you read Good Girl first.
A note on the rating: The first half was 4 stars. The second half was probably close to 4.5-5. But the epilogue is what made this finally get a 5-star rating from me.

Rating: 5 Stars, 4.5 Heat, 5 Narration

Good story

Has humour and is ok to listen to. Great narrators. Some thought processes by the leading characters are too drawn out but all aside, it is a good audiobook to pass the time.

Legiterally a great read (well listen)!

Payton is impulsive, quirky & reasonable (she says so). A game of A or B ends with her married to a man she's known for less than a day, who chose B to stop her getting a tattoo on her ass! A man she met helping her best friend Lydia set up a fake virginity auction to a man, Rhys, who isn't quite tuned in enough to realise what is staring him in the face. All goes as expected, Payton is left in a strip club with Rhys' friends, and Vince, the club's enigmatic owner. Obviously, the best decision is to go out drinking with these 3 almost strangers and wake up married to one of them. But Payton will tell you she doesn't often make good decisions.
Vince, isn't what I expected initially, often baffled but enamoured by Payton's cookie way with words, there is more to him than stereotyped Las Vegas strip club owner of Payton's fanciful imagination.
I laughed out loud so often listening to this, hearing Payton's sayings cracked me up. I hope we see more of this series.

Fantastic!

As usual Jana Aston had me laughing all the way through this delightfully funny book. I just love how her mind works. Payton is everything I’d love to be, she’s fab, fun, crazy, and beautiful. Vince is everything I like in a man, he’s serious, sexy, brooding, and a bit of a romantic. It’s a brilliant, fun, and exciting listen with the perfect narrators. I absolutely loved it and highly recommend.

Legiterally Brilliant

If it’s one thing Jana does brilliantly is hilarious female characters and Peyton is probably one of my favourites. A real good fun light hearted rom-com with perfect narration! 5 stars

A reliably excellent author

A really enjoyable listen with a good dose of humour thrown in. This author is really good and a cut above the rest out there in this genre.

Loved ❤️❤️❤️ Good Time!

I haven't laughed so much with an audio book! My kids kept asking me what was so funny. This story is the second book in this series. The first book was Good Girl (another favourite) books 1 and 2 are both set at the same time but from different characters view points. Very cleverly done. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Would certainly recommend the story.
