Waking Up Married (Waking Up #1)
It's the morning after her cousin's bachelorette party in Vegas and Megan Scott wakes up with the mother of all hangovers. Even worse, she's in a stranger's penthouse having woken up with something else as well - a funny, arrogant, sexy...husband!
Up until now, finding even a boyfriend had seemed impossible - been there, got the broken heart...more
Why? Because of the dialogue. That was the thing that won me over about this book. Kelly had a knack for writing some really good lines that had me grin like a fool, laugh out loud, and even for one tiny moment, make my eyes misty.
I mean, I'm reading a Harlequin romance. How complicated can it be. And there are ...more
long: i was totally in the mood for something light and a little cheesy and fun. i love cheesy rom coms. something with a title like Waking Up Married is usually right up my alley. I THOUGHT! this story would go something like this:
woman wakes up married to a guy she met in vegas.
they know they need to break up.
he woooooooos her.
it's super corny.
it's super cute.
there's a montage.
they realize they are meant to be together.

Megan Scott in Las Vegas for her cousin's wedding, wakes up after a night out on the town with a handsome stranger, to find herself married. Connor Reed is surprised that he and Megan click so well even after just one night. He's so happy about the arrangement, he'd like to make the marriage permanent. Trying to talk Megan out of a divorce though is going to be tough.
So the story line isn't exactly new. If you've seen the movie What Happens in Vegas you'll know what I mean. But the execution is ...more
I knew I was in trouble after reading the first couple of pages, during which I was assaulted with one adjective-riddled, anecdotal cliche after another. Anything that is suppos ...more
initally when i picked this one i expected to be a light hearted,humored romance comedy almost a book adaptaion of the movie WHAT HAPPENED IN VEGAS...but boy wasnt i in for a suprise...
The first half the book was dragging and slow.i hated megan intally with her nagging mistrust and over rated sulking,she reminded me of BELLA in more ways that one...that at one point i actualy thought this one was going to end up as a DNF....but since this was the only book on my e- ...more
“None of that. You’re handsome, but I’m honestly working an escape strategy here.”
You're my best bet Connor! Please let me bear your babies!
I enjoyed reading this one because of its conversational flow, you'll love the banter between the characters.
You'll know that Connor fell the moment Megan talked to him, he just doesn't know it yet.
It was swee ...more
You all have heard that saying: "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas." Now, in some cases that would (kind of) be true - denial is a true life-saver at times, but some things simply can't be pushed under the carpet.
Take Megan, for instance. The morning after her cousin's bachelorette party, she wakes up in a stranger's bed, and she's wearing a wedding ring!
Now if only she could remember how exactly did she ended up there, all would be all right.
For his par ...more
Initial reaction upon reading the book was, "finally, a book where the guy's the one trying to convince his one night stand/drunkenly wedded spouse to give their relationship a chance". I'm not sure if this says something about me as a person, but I love a good story where the man grovels, begs, pleads, woos, romances, etc., the heroine whether it be for a past transgression or to win her over in a new relationship. That reason alone had ...more
Megan: This can't be real. I was JUST admiring your lazy smile and wondering about it's origins. I'll tes ...more
Neither of them is looking for love. He wants a marriage that based on liking, shared goals and values without the mess of strong emotions. She's given up on relationships but wants children and has plans to get artificially inseminated. When they meet in Vegas and have a gloriously fun night, he decides she's everything he's looking f ...more
First, let's talk story. This isn't a new plot. However, it's one of my favorites when done right and when fresh. I think Ms. Kelly managed both with this book, a ...more
Not sure it was the book itself, of Harlequin's one-part-a-day-on-Facebook release of this that made me like it so much. I just couldn't wait for the next installment!
Still I enjoyed it. I like that they were already married, which is definitely a twist on traditional romance. And yet, the book still ended with a proposal. I liked the flashback aspects. And I love th ...more
It really was a cute and good story. I had to give it three stars though because I felt it drag ...more
Also, I LOVE that the heroine was s smart, intelligent woman with a job in computers/software. (Yeah, I'm kind of tired of the smart woman who is fine just bein ...more
I don't give out 5 hearts very easily but because it caught me off guard completely, I'm giving it the full 5 hearts it deserves. I got it for free from Amazon so I wasn't really expecting it to be this fun, quirky, and seductive. I was dreading it was going to be a bit of a heavy read and somewhat complicated but it turned out to be a predictable (in a good way) and light read, which made it way better than what I was expecting it to be. It was very cheesy and corny, which I usually ...more
I love this.

Harlequin Romance conjures certain images in ones’ head, particularly if you or your mother read them in the 70s and 80s. You probably remember the red header, the schmaltzy covers, and the shamefully ludicrous plots. Harlequin has been desperately trying to put this image behind them by introducing something for every roman ...more
When I got this book it did remind me of What happens in Vegas at the start but anyways this was short and fun.I knew what would happen in this book well main bits anyways the title gives it away!
It all start off when Megan wakes up in a strange bed with a man and finds out that she married him. Connor remembers what happened the night before as for Megan everything is a little fuzzy and she doesn't remember why she would marry someone she had just met.She w ...more
Megan's first thought upon waking up with a stranger is that she and Carter? Connor? need a divorce, like NOW.
But CONNOR has other ideas. He thinks that Megan is exactly what he was looking for. He wants a family, but he doesn't want love. He wants affection and fidelity. B ...more
I got a really creepy guy who wanted to force the woman he woke up married to to keep their relationship going even though she was against it.
I felt this was a PG-13 rated version of 50 Shades of Grey... and that's not a good thing (I didn't like 50 Shades of Grey). The guy was sexy, rich, and possessive. Megan was broken, innocent, and didn't care about his money. Basically, bullshit. I roll ...more
For most part, this story reminds me of the movie What Happens In Vegas (Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz) because well, the setting was the same and they both ended up being married.
Megan sworn off men after her last relationship ended in a humongous disaster ...more
Waking Up Married is such a sweet, cute romance! This book was absolutely adorable.
I've always liked the idea of a couple being married and then getting to know each other because I think it creates an interesting dynamic within the couple, but this is the first contemporary romance of that idea that I've read. And it didn't disappoint.
Megan was a heroine that was easy to relate to. After finding herself in this situa ...more
