Women the world over know being arm candy is not always fun and games, because it comes down to "I have all the glitz and glam but no real emotional connection."

And as most celebrities do when their wild ride of fame comes under attack, the arm candy is the last to find out about the indiscretions, as well as get called every horrible name under the sun by fans who only know the media’s portrayal of the celebs.

Since heading for the nearest exit and a new life is the sensible choice, this is ex...more
I'm rating this book a little higher than I normally would, because the epilogue is the most fabulous epilogue I've read for a fluffy HEA novel. Of course... it might not make as much sense without reading the rest of the book, but go for it. It's not long and the beginning is almost as fun as the end.

The story: Colin, filling in as a bar tender for his friend on Fat Tuesday, notices a girl sitting at a table, bored out of her mind, while her friend tries to make eyes at one of the musicians. Co...more

What I really enjoyed about this story was the way the author let the female lead evolve. Instead the almost usual strong man helps and comforts the weak woman scenario was replaced with a woman moving on from difficult times and becoming stronger. Jamie decides not to let her past determine her future and makes a choice to leave the mess behind but take the lessons she learnt with her into the future.
The author also takes a wee poke at the media, the public and the almost frenzy like need for g...more

Starting over didn’t sound easy, but starting over in New Orleans at Mardi Gras seemed like the best way to handle things for Jamie Vincent. It’d be like her very own welcoming party. So what if she and her roommate have nothing in common? Maybe at some point, the guy in that band would stop playing and they could join the festivities outside the bar in which they were currently languishing. Read More
I started this one yesterday in honor of Fat Tuesday. And I was pleasantly surprised. I always enjoy these harlequin kiss novels, but I think this might be one of my favs that I've read do far. I liked the characters and the storyline. It wasn't quite as predictable as others. A fun, quick read.

4 stars.
I really liked the hero but the heroine was problematic for me. Great sense of place.

For once was disappointed by kimberly lang. The plot was laborious.
Harlequin Books
"Vivid descriptions of the sights and sounds of Mardi Gras combined with naturally flowing conversations and multifaceted characters will make readers root for the geek to get his girl." RT Book Reviews, rated 4 1/2 stars

Miniseries: One Night in New Orleans
Perfect vacation read
Sexual content but not too graphic.

Mardi Gras is apparently quite the wild party. Colin saved Jamie from experiencing it all on her own. But once it was over at the stroke of midnight, they lose contact. You'll enjoy reading how they find each other again and how their relationship progresses and then hits bumps in the road. In the end, the zombies bring them back together.
