Publisher's Summary

Andie Marks, known as "Party Girl" in her college days, is now a whip-smart lawyer on the fast track to success. Determined to move on from a bad break-up, she joins her girlfriends for a wild bachelorette weekend in Las Vegas, promising to let her hair down just this once.

Vegas is a blur of cocktails and blackjack, and in the middle of it all she meets Mack, a real-life cowboy with a winning hand and an irresistible body. They get lucky in the casino and luckier back at the hotel, a hot night of passion that was definitely not part of Andie's life plan.

By dawn Mack is gone and all she has to remember their one-night romance is a hangover and a pile of casino chips. Or so she thinks....

    Story
    "I didn't buy it."

    It wasn't awful. It was about 4 hours longer than it needed to be, most of that consumed by our heroine's dithering. I liked our hero fine. His speech in the epilogue almost makes up for everything I didn't like in the book...almost.

    The author tells us the heroine is a smart, ruthless, confident lawyer, but she spends most of the book in insipid bimbo mode. Her back story made me want to care about her. Her behavior made me roll my eyes and want to slap someone.

    Creditworthy? Not for me. Will I check out the next book? Maybe. The parts that made me laugh had me thinking, "More like this!" So, maybe.

    I don't know why so many people liked this book. I was ready to throw it out of the window several times and debated about finishing the thing. FAIL

    "Good book."

    It was funny, sexy,especially the hot cowboy. The story was good,but Andi was a little too wishy washy, which really got on my nerves. But overall it was a great story. Too slow in some parts and ended way too quickly. But what can I say, I love those sexy dirty talking cowboys.

    Story
    "Shine Not Burn"

    I knew the motto of the MacKenzie clan from reading the Outlander books so even though this story has nothing to do with that one, I was inclined to like it before I started listening, however tenuous the connection, lol. It turns out that the story was pretty cute. The couple were sweet together. My only real complaint is the characters seemed inconsistent. First Mac was mad at Andi when she showed up, then he was trying to get her to stay. He ran pretty hot & cold there for a while. And Andi was a total pushover with men. I felt like these character traits were used to drive the plot, rather than the circumstances they found themselves in. Jmo!

    Story
    "Found a new favorite narrator"

    The story was cute. Fast paced and fun to listen to. But the narrator is what did it for me. Lauren Ezzo's performance made me stay so engaged in this story. She really nailed down the voices and emotions of all the many characters. I can't wait to search for more books done by her.
