It’s spring break, and a group of teachers from Half Moon Bay Middle School are planning to cut loose. History teacher Meg Phillips hadn’t planned on being one of them—Vegas isn’t really a town for a bookworm—but somehow she let her friend Anne talk her into it.
Though honestly, she’d rather indulge in some poolside reading than co-star in an R-rated edition of Teachers Gone Wild.
It took some major arm twisting for Finn Walsh to convince his fellow gym teacher, Anne, to do whatever it took to get Meg to Vegas. For over a year he’s been looking for the chance to get to know her outside of work. He’s drawn to her quiet beauty and intelligence—and the hint of fire beneath her understated exterior.
When he finally gets the opportunity to peel away those layers, the result is far more explosive than he ever fantasized. Now to convince her that the week isn’t a wildly out-of-character mistake, but the start of something amazing…
I think by now we all know that Crystal Jordan is a go to author for me. To date I haven’t read anything by her that I didn’t enjoy and Vegas Vacation is no different. I was more than excited when asked to read this book. I love the idea of a group of teachers cutting loose and having a good time on spring break. The fact that they are doing it in Vegas just added to the fun. All I could think of was drunk teachers running all over Vegas Hangover style. lol That’s not exactly how it all goes down though. I can relate to Meg in a lot of ways. I am not a very outgoing person in real life. Online I can be KittyKelly and be crazy and wild but in person I tend to be a bit shy until I get to know you. I love that Meg’s version of Vegas wasn’t all about partying. I also love that Finn is determined to convince Meg that he’s perfect for her. After watching a particularly difficult breakup between colleges at work she is more than gun-shy about work relationships, but Finn isn’t going to let anything stop him. He is so persistent, yet patient and when they finally hit the sheets it is more than hot enough to set the hotel on fire. I really enjoyed getting to know these characters and I can’t wait for the next in the series. I’m not 100% sure who gets the next book but I’m sure it will be just as much fun as this one.
