What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? Not always…

After being left at the altar by her high school sweetheart Genevieve Fennel is done with love, done with romance and done with men. Period. She’s always been a good girl, while her friends indulged in casual encounters and they seem happy and satisfied enough. So why can’t she?

Meeting NYPD officers Dane and Graham Porter in Vegas gives her an opportunity to be the bad girl she thinks she needs to be. After a night of passion, she finds herself embarrassed of her wanton behaviour, but takes solace in the fact she can put the night behind her once she returns home.

Back in New York just when she thinks she can forget what happened in Vegas, destiny shows it has other plans. When there’s a break-in at her boutique, it’s the sexy-as-sin Porter brothers who are sent to her rescue intent on stirring up the feelings of abandon she’s trying to forget.

How can she forget what happened in Vegas, when the two men who brought her to such heights of pleasure refuse to let her go so easily? Even if she does decide to open her heart to them, how can she make a choice between the two amazing brothers, both intent on winning her affections? Or maybe she doesn’t have to…

This book was great.

Even though there’s a love triangle it doesn’t really last the entire book, about halfway through she picks a guy.. AND sticks with it!

The beginning was so raunchy I loved it, but after 30% it stops and we don’t get it back.
A lot of people hated Dane after the homeless scene, but honestly I get it. I’m all for helping the homeless people, and helping the but they also shouldn’t be romanticized. Especially in a city like Vegas, where most people are on the street because of addiction. Maybe he should have given the guy a dollar but I don’t think that’s reason enough to hate him.

I didn’t like Dane but only because of how he treated girls, and he still wasn’t awful.
Graham was super sweet but I could not get over how both of his serious relationships had to be with a girl who he had gotten cause of his brother, I mean really. Why would you trust a girl who ran to you after your brother dumped her?

As for Genevieve I didn’t have any huge problems with her, except for when she couldn’t choose between the guys. I just wanted to yell at her and then hit her with a mop. Then she was all sad and hurt after they found out.  What did she expect? They would all hug and make rainbows?

In any case it was still a cute summer read. It was pretty short but it was alright because it never got annoying. I can’t wait to read the second book in this series, I hope It holds up!
