Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this.
Evelyn Thomas' plans for celebrating her 21st birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure as hell never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the Black Plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened. One thing is for certain: being married to rock and roll's favourite son is sure to be a wild ride.

I loved the general feel of the book. It was charming and romantic . All the characters were likeable and distinctive.
The marked men series has a similar feel.
The characterisations were good and I got caught up in the story. If I do not like a narration I cannot listen to the story however this was very well performed
There were several but would not want to spoil the story. I liked the developing love story between the main characters.
This was a new author for me but I so enjoyed the whole book , it made me laugh and tears leaked whilst listening a definite listen again book . The narrator helped to make this book Andi Arndt really understood the story and emphasized where needed. , will defiantly be listening to the rest of the series .
So much better the second time around. Love the boys from Stage Dive - Dave, Mal, Jimmy and Ben.
This book is about David and Evelyn and what happens in Vegas.
Evelyn grow up in Portland. She wanted to celebrate her 21st birthday in Vegas with her best friend Lauren. She woke up in her hotel room with a man she didn't know, a tattoo on her bottom and married. How could she have got married in Vegas?? She didn't remember a think. She got married to the guitarist from Stage Dive David Ferris and neither of them are happy about it. Dave wants to be married but Evelyn is just not sure. The book is about the journey from Vegas to Los Angeles to Portland.
Awesome first book by Kylie Scott
I get bored quickly so take ages choosing my books. Preferred authors are Sanderson, Rothfuss, Abercrombie, tho' C Harris makes me laugh too
Feeling in need of some light relief, I threw these into my 3 for 2 "beach listens" basket. My expectations were not high.
Have to admit to loving it. A little x-rated in places, but enough humour and light stuff to keep me entertained. If the Fifty-Shades books' sex:story ratio was 90:10, then this is 10:90.....and the characters in the story are much more fun and likeable.
Of course, the story is completely implausible, and the writing is not going to win any literary prizes, but it's just fun - and a perfect beach listen or "chic lit". Have already downloaded book 2 in the series ...........for my beach listening, of course.
a wonderfully all round excellent read narater is wickedly awsome female and male role don't miss out on a dam good book....read the full series you will not be disappointed.
Absolutely loved this book, fantastic story. David and Evelyn met in Vegas one drunken night and got married! When she wakes up the next morning, Evelyn has no recollection of the previous evening. It turns out that David is lead guitarist in one of the biggest bands around, not that Evelyn recognises him or follows his band. When it is apparent that the situation is not going to just go away, they try to make the best of a bad situation. Evelyn spends the next few months learning what it's liked to be married to a rock star - not easy. Lawyers, fans and a bitch of an ex girlfriend, all make for an interesting story full of love, lust, passion and heartbreak.
I stumbled upon this author because I really liked the narrator so I checked out other books she'd done and lucky for me she seems to be reading several by Kylie Scott
I liked this book a lot, the story, though obviously implausible was skilfully made real and believable.
I would recommend this and will add it to my rotation, so will definitely listen to it again in the future.
