In Benjamin Bell’s case, a little bit of Vegas follows him home in the form of Mason Hadley. Little

07/16/14 Audible Version. 3 Stars. I still enjoyed the story very much but the narrator was wretched and ruined some of my happiness.

12/10/10 I know that there are a lot of mixed reviews on this book but I have to say I just loved it. It's not perfect by any means and neither are the MC's but I'm still feeling the love.

Wealthy and handsome Benjamin Bell has everything he wants in life, a penthouse apartment in Park Avenue, NYC, an easy job at his father architecture firm, and beautiful girlfriend... but he awakes in a hotel room with an hangover and no idea of what he did the night before. Two baby blue eyes and milky white skin is the only remembrance he has of the person he spent the night with, and not sleeping if the five used condoms he finds in the room are any indication. His friend Lucas, who was with ...more

I was given a ARC for an honest review and let me say, this is one hot novella. (It was short but oh so sweet) Ben and his best friend Lucas take a few days away from the office and head out to Las Vegas. Ben has a Long term relationship with Genevieve, but is clearly not happy so he tells her that the trip to Vegas is business related. Ben gets drunk out of his mind, and falls head over heels for Mason…That’s right, another man and they end up at the Chapel of Love. Ben has little memory of all ...more
I have come to enjoy this storyline I shall call 'marrying under the influence'. Truly, Vegas is a dangerous place to be if you can't hold your liquor after you've picked up a date for the night. At least that's my observation after reading three romance novels with that being the case.

This is one that if I had paid close attention to the gist of the story before I picked it up; I probably wouldn't have read it. I'm not big on cheating and this whole story is a result of a guy lying and cheatin

I can't believe the rating was so high for this book! Seriously, I've read fanfics better than this, scratch that, WAAAAAYYY better than this. This sounds like a fanfic I wrote when I'm fifteen, I mean without the sex of course >_< I just wanna kill the main characters. If you're looking for some warm fuzzy feeling then this is your book.

This novella has a fun and interesting premise and is surprisingly not filled with sex scenes. There is at least an attempt to bring more character and plot into the story, yet sadly the story still isn’t completely successful. There are several writing and pacing issues as well as a lack of depth to the characters beyond their surface descriptions. Additionally there is very little action, as the characters seem to just exist rather than engaging in interesting dialogue or scenes. Thus the book ...more

"I must have had a good time last night but what did I do?" is the premise of this book.
Ben wakes up in a hotel room to evidence of how he spent the night and realises he has cheated on his girlfriend but has no idea who with. And so the story begins. It is an MM story so that gives away one detail, but you find that out soon enough.

I haven't read it recently but the plot remains with me.
This was a really interesting read, just not my typical genre. I will on occasions give an MM a shot but usually it is part of a series I am reading. This was a really interesting story but just left me cold.

Part of my problem is both characters are young and kind of immature. They just did not connect with me, I tried but, just eh.

The steam way hot and heavy, really plentiful. I wish I were into this genre. If you like MM and New Adult sort of characters you will really enjoy this book.

I have read this book many times. Its outrageous and outrageous and I love it. Ben is so lost in his life and when Mason busts in he is flailing. Any other MC wouldn't have worked with this story. I know some people don't like him but I KNOW people like him. They are going through life being pushed by others wants and desires. He hasn't been raised to believe that what he wants matters. I think this is what pisses readers off about him. He is a door mat. Until he meets Mason, he has no clue what ...more

what a gem.totally loved this book.and the banter was on point.its amazing how I forgot this was an ofy.Ben took it like a champ. no melodrama for him.
Deanna Against Censorship
What an absurdly delightful story. I love Mason, his style, his eyes, his mouth. Ben is uptight in a non-uptight family with a girlfriend made of ice until he goes to Vegas. Not going to say much as I do not want to ruin it. If you want to laugh. If you want a twink who is flawed but beautiful. If you need to smile. Read this.
First time I've read a MM erotic romance and really enjoyed it.

Total fluff, but I just loved this! Just what I was in the mood to read. Lighthearted, funny with totally unbelievable plot and two guys hot for each other. I'm looking forward to reading more from these authors!
