The Wedding Gamble by Cindi Myers
4 out of 5 Licks
Preschool teacher Laura Nichols is celebrating her birthday and sister’s bachelorette party in Vegas. Being in Sin City is thrilling and she intends on tapping in to her wild side. Laura can’t resist the added excitement that comes with saying yes when a hunky man off the street proposes…
FBI agent David Abruzzo has been working undercover as a thug to bring down the Zacolli crime family, but his cover depends on convincing the mob he came to Vegas for a quickie wedding. If they catch on to his plan, his cover’s blown, and he’s as good as dead.
Over the course of 48 hours, David and Laura use rollercoasters, glowing condoms, and exotic male dancers to stay alive and bring the crime family down. But it will take more than Lady Luck, one night of passion, and a little Vegas magic to turn their fake marriage into something real.
I really enjoyed this book. It’s interesting to see the marriage of convince outside of a regency type novel. While being grabbed and rushed into a marriage probably wasn’t what Laura was planning for her trip to Vegas, she seemed to really enjoy to the wild trip she wound up having. I loved her playfulness and watching her really break out of her shell. David, a typical troubled man, was lots of fun too. There were so many times I found myself laughing out loud at the craziness the two of them kept getting into. The sex between them was hot and the romance that built between them even hotter. You’d think by now I’d learn not to worry when it comes to my characters getting their HEA, but I was a bit worried with this one. It may all work out in the end but it sure was a wild ride there.
