I love a light, sexy, feel good rom com, and this is definitely that. It plays up the tropes, starting with an extremely memorable meet cute before moving into a Vegas wedding and a “fake” relationship that stirs up all kinds of real feelings. There’s obvious chemistry between these two, and I was rooting for them from the start. Our hero made me want to shake him a few times, but I liked this the whole way through, despite a few things that bugged me along the way.
The story follows Sophie and Cox, two people who haven’t seen each other for years. Back when they were pre-teens, Cox used to pull Sophie’s pigtails and was generally a pain in her butt. When they run into each other years later (in one of the most unique meet cutes I’ve read), there’s definite attraction. Cox doesn’t seem to remember Sophie and that ticks her off, but it doesn’t diminish the spark between them. Add in a business trip to Vegas, a little too much alcohol, and a marriage license, and these two find themselves in over their heads.
This was such a fun, low angst, easy read – just what I wanted. There are plenty of laughs along the way and some steamy moments to heat things up. I liked both characters and I loved the chemistry between them; their shared history makes this a richer story. Cox’s continued insistence that he’s “not the marrying kind” got a little old after awhile, but I really did like him. This straddled the line between 4 and 5 stars for me for much of the story – there’s too much internalization and some inconsistencies, but I enjoyed the vast majority of the book. It wasn’t until the lukewarm ending that my 4-star rating was cemented. Let’s just say that it felt like the hero put his business first, even at the end. All that said, this was solid overall and the kind of sassy, sexy read I was looking for.
I never should have gone commando in that dress.
I’m almost positive the rest of it wouldn’t have happened if I hadn’t been dangling off a hotel balcony with my lady parts in the breeze. And of course the one person to witness my mortification had to be HIM. Camden Cox.
Sure, today he’s gorgeous and wealthy, and fine, I can admit he has a great sense of humor. But once upon a time, he was the boy who loved to make my life miserable.
He no longer pulls my pigtails, but I know his type. He wants one thing, and one thing only. A chance to get in my pants.
Nope. Not happening. Not even with that sexy Southern drawl.
But I’m Sophie Abbott, and if there’s one thing I’m good at, it’s making a mess.
Only this isn’t just a mess. It’s a disaster. A Sophie disaster.
Because after a wild night in Vegas, I wake up naked in his hotel room.
And I’m pretty sure we got married.
Author’s note: An adorkable hot mess who throws a cocky charmer completely off his game. Plus a salty dad playing matchmaker, laugh-out-loud banter, a couch scene that will melt your Kindle, and the swooniest of swoony happy endings.
Marrying Mr. Wrong can be read as a stand alone.
