Summary

Marrying a stranger tops the list of things you should never do in Las Vegas, but I did it anyway.  

The entire night was my idea. I was the one who suggested a wake-up-with-a-tiger kind of night. Instead, I woke up with a ring on my finger and Vince Rossi in my bed.  

Vince was nothing like I thought he was and everything I never knew I needed. Suddenly I was falling head-over-heels in love with my accidental husband and the idea of ending this union was the last thing I wanted.  

I wanted forever. So what if we barely knew each other? Statistically speaking, our odds were as good as anyone’s.   

Until the annulment papers landed on my doorstep....

Legiterally a great read (well listen)!

Payton is impulsive, quirky & reasonable (she says so). A game of A or B ends with her married to a man she's known for less than a day, who chose B to stop her getting a tattoo on her ass! A man she met helping her best friend Lydia set up a fake virginity auction to a man, Rhys, who isn't quite tuned in enough to realise what is staring him in the face. All goes as expected, Payton is left in a strip club with Rhys' friends, and Vince, the club's enigmatic owner. Obviously, the best decision is to go out drinking with these 3 almost strangers and wake up married to one of them. But Payton will tell you she doesn't often make good decisions.
Vince, isn't what I expected initially, often baffled but enamoured by Payton's cookie way with words, there is more to him than stereotyped Las Vegas strip club owner of Payton's fanciful imagination.
I laughed out loud so often listening to this, hearing Payton's sayings cracked me up. I hope we see more of this series.

Fantastic!

As usual Jana Aston had me laughing all the way through this delightfully funny book. I just love how her mind works. Payton is everything I’d love to be, she’s fab, fun, crazy, and beautiful. Vince is everything I like in a man, he’s serious, sexy, brooding, and a bit of a romantic. It’s a brilliant, fun, and exciting listen with the perfect narrators. I absolutely loved it and highly recommend.

Legiterally Brilliant

If it’s one thing Jana does brilliantly is hilarious female characters and Peyton is probably one of my favourites. A real good fun light hearted rom-com with perfect narration! 5 stars

A reliably excellent author

A really enjoyable listen with a good dose of humour thrown in. This author is really good and a cut above the rest out there in this genre.

Hillarious!!

Jana did so good with Payton and Vince's story!! I was laughing my butt off from chapter one! I am pretty sure Payton is my new spirit animal! <3 I mean there were times where her young age came out and had me wanting to slap the silly out of her but that is one of the things I love about her, she owned it all! Vince is so mysterious and normally I would have hated not having his POV throughout but I was pleasantly surprised to have the epilogue in his POV! it was AWESOME!!! it made everything come together for me and I was just sooo happy in the end!
Erin Mallon is the freaking queen narrator IMO and she did amazing! she was brought Payton to life better than anyone else could have! loved everything about this story!

HILARIOUS!

What a crazy ride. The heroine is a hoot and complete goof, with her heart in the right place, and no filter between her brain and her mouth. Very lighthearted and fun story. 😂

❤️❤️❤️5 BIG STARS❤️❤️❤️

Hilarious!!!

2nd read My re-read was done through audible. Narrator Erin Mallon killed it with these characters. I loved this just as much the second time as I did the first. That ending was swoon worthy!

1st read I absolutely loved Good Time!!! I just really love quirky characters who can make me bust out laughing. Payton had me rolling so many times reading this book. She's the very definition of quirky and little bit insane. I loved her. This girl was a riot.

Payton isn't going to be everyone's cup of tea because she is that silly kind of quirky and I know not everyone can appreciate that. I mean, this girl made up her own vocabulary when she couldn't find the right words she needed. I legiterally want to use them myself...and I just did and that made me happy. :)

I also really liked how bold Payton was in her sexuality. It's pretty refreshing to read a heroine who isn't afraid to ask for sex and one that has no shame with their body. Saying that, you don't see her with any other man but the hero in this book. There is no other women or men drama. It was just a fun, happy book that I truly enjoyed.

Vince. This man surprised me. I really didn't know what to expect going in and I really like what I learned about him. The whole book is in Payton's POV except the Epilogue. Despite that, the author did a great job of expressing Vince. As much as I enjoyed Payton's actions, I doubly enjoyed Vince's reactions. I gotta admit, Vince had me swooning there at the end. I wasn't expecting the big romance in this, but it's there and it hit in a big way.

If everything I said in this review sounds like something you would enjoy, then I highly recommend you read this book. You will have a good time!

It's a real GOOD TIME

I picked up this book knowing it would be a Good Time (I know you see what I did there). I just knew because Jana Aston always makes me laugh. ALWAYS. And she did not disappoint. Seriously. There wasn't a single thing wrong with this book. In fact, everything that could go right, went right.

And I don't think anyone could do a better job of bringing our Payton to life quite like Erin Mallon. She's the only person who could do her justice. And I love her for it.

Payton is the friend of our Good Girl, Lydia. You remember her, right? She found love with our favorite Rhys. Payton was the crazy friend. Is the crazy friend. The kind of friend you wish you had. Especially when you get inside her head.

Which is what you get here. Payton is the funniest heroine I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. And I've met some crazy ladies in my time. But Payton is just so much fun and endearing and there's a small part of me that is just as crazy so I can totally relate to her brand of nuts.

And don't even get me started on Vince. Vince in Good Girl was a bit mysterious and had that whole "I run a strip club" thing about him.
But Vince in Good Time is just all the things. He's my number two Aston man. And I think that's because I'm stubborn and I'll never let Sawyer go. But let's talk about Vince....

Just, yes please! I'll take one sexy, broody, intense, intelligent man. I'll take him to-go. I'll take him for now. And I'll take him forever. Till death do us part.

You will too. You'll want a Vince all for yourself. But unfortunately I've already claimed him so you'll just have to bow out now.

Playful and fun, but missing something vital

I’ll preface this by stating that I love all of Jana Aston’s books. Her ability to make readers/listeners laugh while truly feeling something is phenomenal. I also love both Erin Mallon and Jason Clarke. They are two of my absolute favorite narrators. That being said, I wanted more Vince than just the Epilogue. Payton was funny, wild, and charming, but I kept feeling like there were missing pieces of the story. Vince’s emotional development would have been a beautiful addition, not to mention that, as the reader, I always look forward to knowing a little something extra before the other characters in the story do. While I loved Vince, I didn’t get to know him in the way that I did with Jennings and Luke and Kyle...and all the rest of the wonderfully enigmatic males in Jana’s others books.
In all, I enjoyed the story, but I’m sure, like other followers of Jana, it would be a treat to have some Vince bonus material.

Very Enteratining

Couldn't stop listening, so entertaining, humorous dialog. Jana Aston writes an enjoyable, (minimum drama), story and Erin Mallon is a great narrator for the main character.

Love Love Love

I listened to this book with earbuds in my ear, unnoticed by most people, and it made me laugh out loud so many times that people around me think I’m crazy. When I wasn’t laughing, I was still walking around with a big dumb grin and chuckling to myself. If Peyton’s imagination is a reflection of her creator’s, Jana Aston must be very clever, a little crazy, and fun to follow. I can’t wait to see what she writes next!
Also, Erin Mallon knocks this out of the park! She is one of my favorite narrators, reading one of my favorite writers. This book just makes you happy.
