The Wedding Gamble by Cindi Meyers is sweet, flirty and fun. I had a hard time putting it down. I am sucker for shy wallflowers finding their inner beauty and self-worth and the sexy men who knew it was there all along. This story is about curvy preschool teacher stuck in a rut. Then one night in Vegas, on sister’s bachorlette party, she agrees to marry a sexy stranger. Turns out he is undercover for the FBI trying to take down a Mob family. Now Laura’s life is turned upside down as she puts her ...more

Here’s another “Got wasted in Vegas and ended up married” story, and it was great fun, proving that predictable works if it’s written well. Laura is in Las Vegas for her younger sister’s bachelorette party. It’s also Laura’s birthday, not that anyone remembers. She’s having a miserable time until one of the bridesmaids gives her some “generic aspirin,” and then Laura is wandering the Strip in a loopy haze. She meets David outside of a wedding chapel, and he asks her to do him a favor. Laura alwa ...more

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The Wedding Gamble was the perfect amounts of sweet, steamy, adrenaline fueled danger and laugh out loud funny. I enjoyed every fun and exciting moment of it.

Laura was such a fun MC to read. She's a preschool teacher and the type of girl who puts everyone's needs above her own, a bit of a pushover, safe, dependable...hate to say but a bit boring? She always does the right thing

I really enjoyed The Wedding Gamble. It's a fun, quick novel set in Vegas full of romance and mystery.

Laura is in Vegas to celebrate her sister's bachelorette party even though no one remembers is her birthday and her little sister is very self center. 27 Dresses style.
While doing an errand for her sister, Laura meets David in front of a chapel where he asks her to do him a little favor.
Now, Laura was a bit drunk and on medication, which is why she e

5 Vegas Lights Stars!!

I was completely won over by Cindi Myers’ The Wedding Gamble. There are multiple tales of last second Vegas nuptials to complete strangers, but I have never read one quite like this. It was a story I HAD to read in one sitting to find out what happened.
Laura Nichols is “having the time of her life!” in Vegas for her little sister’s bachelorette party. No wait, that’s not right. She isn’t even close to having the kind of Vegas fun that Vegas always promises. Tha

Laura went to Vegas to celebrate her sister's bachlorette party, but it's also her birthday. It seems that no one even remembers that she has a reason to celebrate too, so she ends up wandering the strip on her own and feeling a little loopy since one of the other bridesmaids slipped her something with her drink. That's when she meets David, who pulls her in to a wedding chapel and asks her to do him a favor and marry him. You see, he's FBI, tracking someone in the mob and some goons are getting ...more

Posted on What I'm Reading

Last night I finished The Wedding Gamble by Cindi Myers. I personally liked the story. I thought it was cute and entertaining. Plus, who doesn't like a story set in Vegas? However, one thing that needs to be remember when reading a Vegas setting story is the likelihood of anything that happens in the story might not happen in real life. Second, it's a story and should be enjoyed as a story. With that said here are my thoughts on the story:

Quiet and shy Laura has always been the sensible, quiet and serious sister often rolled over and taken advantage of by her younger, thinner and far more demanding little sister. Again Laura has been steamrolled into a bachelorette to celebrate her sister’s upcoming wedding.

A drunken wander later and she wakes up married to a man who is sexy, confident and dangerous. David is an undercover agent currently involved with the mafia, and being manhandled and threatened by two goons.

With romance, sexiness, completely loveable characters and a great (albeit unlikely) storyline, this book has it all. A fabulous read from start to finish, I loved every page.

Laura Nichol’s, a pre-school teacher, is in Las Vegas for her ‘perfect’ sister’s hen/bachelorette party. She’s sweet, sensible and dependable and her family expect her to put herself out for them. David Arbruzzo, an unbelievably sexy undercover FBI agent is witty, kind and protective and needs to prove to the mob he’s in V

I just finished this book and it was better than I thought it was going to be.

The book starts out with the heroine Laura in Las Vegas for her sister Rachel's(the pretty, thin, smart, popular sister)bachelorette trip. The trip also happens to fall on Laura's 26th bday which everyone seems to have forgotten. She doesn't complain, she just goes with the flow. At first I thought she was a bit of a pushover and I didn't care too much for Rachel.

Then when Rachel sends her off as if she's

I SO loved this book! I saw it rec'd by The Fictionators and after reading the summary decided I had to read it. Laura changed from a meek, mid preschool teacher that everyone took advantage of to a tough yet tender kick ass woman who was David's match in every way. David changed too, from a hard hearted undercover FBI agent that didn't believe in love to a man who would do anything to keep the woman he loved safe. I also liked the secondary characters, Rachel, Laura's sister, who was the reason ...more

This book is completely swoon-worthy. Who doesn't sometimes feel that they could use a little excitement in their life? I know I do on a regular basis, so reading about a preschool teacher (which I happen to do part-time) being randomly picked out of a crowd to marry a hot FBI agent in order to save his life, was fantastic. I felt as if I was living vicariously through Laura, living a thrilling and dangerous life of undercover FBI agents and crazy mobsters.

Laura and David are a cute coupl

Check your brain at the door and have fun with this “what happens in Vegas” story. Preschool teacher and all around good girl Laura Nichols is in Las Vegas with her younger, prettier, “perfect” sister and her sisters friends doing a bachelorette party week before her sister gets married. This is so not her thing but she goes along to get along. She gets separated from her sister and friends and somehow ends up in the arms of hunky FBI agent David Abruzzo who needs someone to marry him, quickly, ...more

4 out of 5 Licks

I really enjoyed this book. It's interesting to see the marriage of convince outside of a regency type novel. While being grabbed and rushed into a marriage probably wasn't what Laura was planning for her trip to Vegas, she seemed to really enjoy to the wild trip she wound up having. I loved her playfulness and watching her really break out of her shell. David, a typical troubled man, was lots of fun too.
For some unknown reason, I am drawn into books where a couple meet and a wedding fellows-immediately.
The Wedding Gamble is just that type of book and yet the storyline really holds your attention.
It is a story with humor, sisterly love, suspense, sizzling love scenes, trust, and love.
Laura is now one of my old time favorite female characters. How could David not fall in love with her? I actually was laughing a out loud when Laura explained the G Spot and the perfect position. She w

this book was a fun book with real/fake wedding, mob, gay, hunk, gun/shooting.
Felt like running like those two.
Beside all this there were searching for confidence, jumping on opportunities and gamble for love, trust.
and also family love.
A quick read, funny and adventurous... quite cute actually.

Mix together a preschool teacher, an FBI agent, the mob, Vegas, and an impromptu wedding and what to do you get? A fun read!! This story is a well-written mix of fun, danger, and craziness. Parts of it may make you laugh out loud. But the character and relationship development are great as well.

A fun, quick read!

3.5 stars if I could. I rather enjoyed it - as I often find myself liking these strangers suddenly married in vegas type stories I dunno why. This one had a bit of a twist to it which made it more intriguing.

Gah! I am in happy land right at this moment.

I just finished reading and yeah, maybe it's a little too fresh to write a review just yet but rest assured that it was good! And the ending... yup, I am happy!
