My Review:

Not having read any of Robyn Thomas's works before, I was impressed with how she executed the story line and the characters' back stories. I found myself feeling for Sara Greaves as she struggled to regain trust in other people while trying to move forward with her life. When the story starts we meet a very nervous/confused Sara Greaves. After planning the perfect wedding, Sara gets dumped by her fiance at the last minute and with the chaos surrounding her, she decides to go to Las Vegas to get away from it all. Not knowing much of her surroundings, she drives to a pawnshop to get rid of the ring that should have meant everything to her, but ended up hurting her in the end. And that is exactly where she bumps into Ethan Monroe, the handsome stranger that seems to be the only one that wants to genuinely help her out. 

As the two of them slowly start to reveal each other's secrets, they both seem to want the same thing and that is to get away from their current lives at least until they're ready to go back. With that said, Ethan suggests they explore Vegas and when they have way too many drinks you can only guess what happens next as the two woke up the next day with a hangover and Sara with a ring on her left hand. After trying to go back to her old life, Ethan asks Sara to come live with him for a certain amount of time in which they will give their marriage a try to see where that leads them, but after too many misunderstandings he'll have to convince Sara that he really is falling in love with her after all.

Personally this was your typical “what-happens-in-Vegas-type-of-story” that we've seen/read so many time, but the plot itself turns out to be different. We get to see/learn more about Ethan towards the end (last part of the story) that it's a bit different to how it started. He has a very controlling/overprotective personality that gets in the way of his relationship with Sara. Whereas she has a kind personality that her career is not something that you would think a person like her would do. It was fun reading about their conversations and romantic scenes. I liked how Ethan's friends got involved when they saw tension between Sara and Ethan, they sort of push the two of them to see how they were really feeling about to each other and getting them to admit it. Overall the plot has its ups an downs as the characters learn to move on from their past lives in order to form a new life with one another. I would definitely be reading more the author now and if you're looking for a quick romantic story then I would suggest giving this book a try. :)
