I had a lot of laugh out loud moments when Mack and Andie first met at a blackjack table in Vegas. She trips over her impossibly high heels and spills her drink all over him. When she tries to help him get cleaned up, something rather *cough* large pops up. He excuses himself to the bathroom and he asks her to watch his spot at the table. She either has to play or he loses his spot, and she knows absolutely nothing about blackjack.

"No, I don't want you to hit me. Do you want me to hit you?"

Once Mack gets back and sees she is actually doing well, they keep playing and drinking, and the chemistry is flying between them. They had back up to her room where more sparks proceed to fly.

Two years later...

Andie is engaged to be married and has applied for a marriage license. She finds out that it can't be issued because she is already married.


She has to get this taken care of before her fiancé, Bradley, finds out. Once she gets to Oregon though, it seems Mack has other ideas about how to handle the situation. She still feels that same pull between her and Mack, but she has a "Life Plan" all mapped out and she doesn't think he fits into that.

While she is there, she meets his parents and starts learning a lot more about Mack and is more confused and unsure of her plans.

This was a fun, lighthearted read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I would love to find out more about Ian, Mack's brother. Maybe there will be another book?!
