Peggy Adams is celebrating a friend's bachelorette party in Las Vegas and feeling a bit down after another fight with her long time boyfriend. She has a bit too much to drink one night and wakes up fully clothed next to a strange man. Unsettled, but thinking nothing more of the incident, Peggy returns to her life in New York. Only to find out later that she actually married the strange man in Las Vegas!
Peggy and Luke decide to pretend to be married for a year in order for Luke to secure his family inheritance and for Peggy to get her cut. She needs it to save her business. But what she doesn't count on is falling for Luke...and all that his life entails.
I absolutely loved this charming book! I loved both Peggy and Luke and enjoyed reading about how they got to know each other. I got completely swept up into the story and found myself laughing out loud and cheering on the couple. It's ALWAYS a treat to have a book that I go out of my way to read and I devoured this one in a single day.
I really liked the full cast of characters. I loved Aunt Abigail and Peggy's friends Josh and Bex. The characters were quirky and added so much to the story! I also liked the little side story about the big corporations taking over the small businesses. Common theme these days. ;)
Lately it seems that it's hard to find satisfactory chick lit but the summer season is upon us and I think this book will perfectly fit your chick lit needs!
