Book Review: Vegas Love by Jillian Dodd

Vegas Love is a contemporary romance by Jillian Dodd. Hollywood actress, Ashlyn Roberts, just had the worst week of her life. Her ex released a sex tape of them and just when she was convinced her current boyfriend was a keeper for standing by her side, he breaks up with her at her friend’s wedding. She is planning to drown her sorrows in booze when she meets a sexy stranger as she’s leaving the wedding and they end up in Vegas, married. Cash Crawford is offered a dream job working with his brother as a junior talent agent. He’ll put his shiny new law degree to good use and make a bunch of money in the process. His first task is simple; keep Ashlyn Roberts out of trouble and don’t sleep with her. Which might be kind of tough, since they definitely consummated their Vegas wedding. Will this one night stand end in the quickie divorce they promised each other? Or will they realize they got lucky in love?
Vegas Love is a fast and fun romance. Ashley is a sweet and talented actress that has been through hell, but still trusts in people too much. Cash comes from a successful family and has come home to work with his brother. When they met, drink, and jet off to Vegas neither really knew what was going to happen next. Passion, a quickie wedding, and more passion have them both on edge. cash is pretty sure he is ready for more, Ashlyn is still trying to get her life back on track and figure out who she can trust. I like that both characters are emotional complex, and that they take to the time to actual talk to each other, at least most of the time. I like that at least the emotional and business portion of the story is realistic, since the sheer wealth and ability to no care about it, is pure fantasy in my world. I found the book to be a fun read for a weekend's escape from reality.

Vegas Love is a great read for pool, beach side, or any other escape. I read my copy on a snowy April week trying to pretend that spring did not include snow this year. It was a nice escape and kept my attention. not my typical read, but a good one.
