"We are going to Vegas. We are going to Vegas!" They used the damn Blue's Clues theme music to their lyrics.

Olivia Harlow
It's a trip with friends. A single girl's celebratory getaway. Olivia Harlow finishes the biggest job she's been offered since starting Harlow Cakes, her custom and specialty cake shop and bakery. So, it's a Vegas weekend for Olivia, the level headed, single mother, with her life scheduled.

There is no way she could guess what would happen and who would follow her home.

Damon Knyght
His search is over. After rising up from the ashes of his life and the pain, he found them. Now that he has them, there is no letting go.

Small excerpt:

"I think we should talk, discuss a few things that you seem to be unclear about." Smiling he grabs my hand, my left hand. Bringing it up to my face, he holds it alongside his. "See anything familiar? Perhaps something matching?"

"You've gotta be kidding me," I exclaim. My eyes are locked onto my very own matching band of gold.

"I'm afraid this isn't a joke." His intense eyes scan over my face.

"Oh, right, I'm so sorry. I don't know how this happened." Heat flushes my skin, the embarrassment and mortification doing their job. "Well, I'm pretty sure the margaritas and shots had something to do with it, but I assure you this isn't something I would normally do. I'll contact a lawyer and we can get this taken care of as quickly as possible." Swallowing back a tornado of emotions, I try to move around him.

His arm winds around my waist, pulling my back into his chest.

"You aren't getting rid of me that easily." He whispers. The heat from his breath along with the intensity in his words both panic and excite me.

I am proud of this story and the characters. Not everyone will love the story or the main characters and while I wish everyone did, I - unfortunately - cannot please every single reader.

If you enjoy this story GREAT! If not, I am sorry this story wasn't a fit for you and hope you find something more fitting to your preferences.

I appreciate everyone's thoughts. So, don't be afraid to leave a low rated review...Just remember to please be constructive with your criticism and not mean/bullying.

Never a 5 star rating, because even I can see areas for improvement - which are never ending after I release the book. I'll go with 3.5 stars :)

Oliva Harlow, owner of Harlows cakes, is a single mother to a little boy named Alex. Olivia just finished a huge job event and her friends begged her to get away for weekend. So the trip was planned and Vegas was on the agenda with the girls for the weekend
It is said" What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!"
Olivia Harlow ended up married to Damon Knyght billionaire, but does not remember it happening

Olivia wanted the marriage to Damion to be annulled, but Damion won't have it. He forces himself into Olivia's life in a stalker way...but WHY? The truth comes out and now everything changes in a blink of an eye.
The emotional pull is strong between Damion and Olivia. The tragedy both Damion and Olivia have experienced in the past plays a big role in how they want to protect themselves from ever being hurt again.
Will Olivia and Damion stay married after the truth comes out? Will they fall in love with each other? Will their past heartache hinder them from ever having a relationship?

I was drawn into Olivia and Damion's story from the beginning.
This was a great read and I very much enjoyed it. There is a lot of emotions at play. I did not give away a lot in this review because I felt it would ruined the awe factor of the read!

What a gripping love story about two tainted souls. It keeps you riveted from cover to cover. Olivia is sweet, strong and loyal to those she's lost. Damon the troubled alpha male that by a twist of fate wants Olivia and will not stop till he has her. Sadie writes with passion and you won't be disappointed with the twists and turns. Olivia's friends are true friends that you instantly fall in love with whilst Damon's mother you just want to slap! Loved the story and thanks to Sadie for the ARC for an honest review.

3.5 stars for me. It was a real pitty because it started great but halfway through Olivia turned really annoying, even a little bit mean to Damon. I don't think he deserved that much.

Review by Lisa Kane

Olivia is a single mom of an eighteen month old, Alex (conceived by way of artificial insemination) and the owner of a busy, popular bakery. She has great friends and a wonderful support system. She goes on a fun weekend to Vegas and wakes up married to the gorgeous stranger in her bed. I know what you are thinking..you've read this same storyline a dozen times already. That's where you are wrong.

Damom is the hot, rich husband in Olivia's bed. Seems they met, enjoyed a few laughs, got drunk and ended up putting a ring on it. But Olivia is no random stranger to Damon. He has been looking for her for over a year, and set this whole thing up. Since the story is told in both POV's, we have the advantage to reading the thoughts of both characters. Damon is a man recovering from the devastating loss of his wife and son who died in a car accident. Since he came into some information about Olivia he has been searching for her. She isn't aware that they share a life changing connection.

Olivia thinks once she leaves Vegas an annulment will solve the problem of getting rid of her unwanted husband. Nope, not going to happen. He pursues her and when she finally learns why he is in her life, she is scared and threatened and has no idea what to do. While Damon originally had one plan in mind, since meeting Olivia he developed an obsession with her and wants her too.

Although there are some light moments, this story is basically a serious tale that has lots of drama and suspense. Damon had an insta love connection with Olivia (I can believe in a connection at a first meeting but he is almost stalkish in his behavior) She flip flops back and forth a lot. She wants him, she is attracted to him, but she wants him gone. One of her good friends wanted a lot more from their relationship than she was willing to give and that is another bit of angst thrown in the mix.

This is a lengthy book, with lots of development between the central characters. How refreshing to have a different spin on the Woke Up in Vegas Married to a Stranger plotline!

No spoilers! The thing with a any book from Sadie, you know your actually going to get a book not a glorified novella or the ever feared cliff hanger. Which I can say thank you for that. However, on the downside they can get a bit wordy but I understand not wanting to get rid of anything especially when these characters have been speaking to you.

I enjoyed the book, I liked how the heroine held her ground and had spunk to her. I wish the hero didn't waffle as much as he did. He was all alpha and then weak, I get where that comes from based on the storyline. I just love an alpha and if your going to be, go all out!

As a mother myself I appreciate how important the child was in this book, in so many stories they aren't even a second thought. That was really nice to see, just the everyday things...it was real life.

Of course there is humor, angst, sexy times, good secondary characters as in every SG book. Great job again!

Redhead single mom Olivia is a baker with funky aprons and funny crazy friends. She is an absolute doll. She goes to Vegas for the weekend and she meets him: Damon. He is a Very Rich Intense Man & he is Sexy as SIN !!! He is overbearing , he will stop at nothing until he gets what he wants, & he wants Olivia. Just when I thought I knew where this story was going, it had so many twists and turns. Without giving too much away just expect the unexpected from this book. I got so wrapped up in this All Consuming Beautiful love story. Every chapter I just fell more & more in love with this man that needed her so much & she needed him just as much !!! This book was so funny and exciting and at times heartbreaking (but in a good way). After I read this I could Not Stop thinking about Damon & Olivia. Ladies this is a must read <3

My first thought was, by the look of this novel, it's going to be:

C)have spelling errors.

I was right about 2 outta 3. The book was VERY long and it did have some spelling errors and mistakes in the novel, however it was far from boring! It was definitely a good read, however I still feel things were left unsaid and that it wasn't a tied ending, there were things that needed to be found out/discussed that weren't present in the novel.

Loved this book from sadie over all. Oliva and Damon had a lot of obstacles to overcome on their own and together before they couls become one.
They have lots of help from family and friends that try their best to keep the couple in check. lots of drama, jokes, and sexy time.
For me there seamed to be a lot of repetition of thoughts from the heroine but other than that this was a great book.

This book had a lot of promise. I love a good Vegas marriage story, and this started out very interesting, but I must say I had a really hard time liking the characters. Especially Damon. He came across to me as less alpha and more controlling, and I never felt as if he redeemed himself of this behavior, even though he did soften as the story progressed. And while I liked Olivia, she came across as a little wishy-washy to me. I also still had questions about the fertility clinic: Why did Damon actually donate? From a legal standpoint, why didn't Olivia challenge Damon's involvement in Alex's life- I mean, I'm sure documents had been signed prior to insemination releasing the sperm donor from any responsibility, and about confidentiality, and Olivia would have had that in her corner. Legally, that fertility clinic would be- and SHOULD be- in a ton of trouble!

So while I liked the overall plot, the story had a lot of holes for me, and the characters just weren't my liking. I am considering more from Sadie Grubor, though, especially if Mercedes gets her own story.

When you read about hero who is so sure in himself and love he feels for the heroine....and he is determent to stand by her, fight for her..no matter what she does or says..yes they both have past issues....he is so perfect with everything he does...I had to get annoyed with Olivia-the heroine. It was meant to happen.

This is one of those books that got me smirk in disbelief. This book is filled with moments- this can only happen in a book.
But I still enjoyed it! I still read it really fast. It has cute and emotional moments.

I like Sadie's books.

I didn't mind how long this book was. Only thing is that missing is better epilogue. I mean what was that? After book this long I wanted something longer, sweeter and maybe more in the future.
You need beta reader Miss Grubor?

This was enjoyable read!

Only thing missing is Mercedes and Alfonso's book- the side characters... I can't find it and I need it! NOW!

This writer rarely disappoints...this is a rich emotive story. Damon and Olivia are married under a cloud of what Olivia assumes, was a drunken one-night stand amidst an impromptu Vegas celebration. Instead Damon orchestrated a chain of events meant to bond them together. Damon tracked her down, stalks her to Vegas, marries her and then tries to invade her life. The state of his sanity and grief is evident from the offset.

They barely know each other and he wants to hand over access of his money, name, and assets.

Olivia wants an annulment, Damon wants her to uproot her life in Pittsburg, a place her family, closely-knit friends and business is located, and move to New York. Olivia is Olivia Harlow, as in Harlow Cakes. She’s been featured in wedding magazines and on Television shows, she’s very well-known.

The clinic mixed up his file number with an anonymous donor. During one month, his supply was used in three separate procedures, there were three others involved in the mix up, but only Olivia’s insemination resulted in conception. Hers was the only one resulted in a pregnancy.

Each of the women chose the same donor and they all received his supply instead.

Liv lost Isaac in a motorcycle accident and then their unborn baby. It’s been three years since Damon lost Rebecca and DJ, his sanity shaken by the tragedy. The two connect on a level because of the pain they’ve both endured.

Both trying to be strong, but the debilitating losses left them wounded, recognising these qualities in each other and connecting on a different level. Olivia is resistant to the marriage. The stalking, disruption to her life, threats, intrusion, plotting and lying. Those aren't as easy to overlook and accept.

Damon was frustrating but vulnerable. He’s a witness in Olivia’s life.
Where he’s mourned his loss and wants to live with love in his life again, she holds on to her ghosts. The invisible scars left by such pain, that will always be there. Now, he must learn patience, as she must learn to heal and live with her scars.

Damon made regretful decisions, multiple times. However, they were emotionally driven circumstances as he tried to find healing in any way he could. He found that with Olivia and Alex and Olivia found that quality in him as well.

~ His late wife Rebecca paid a technician to discard his sample, not keen on having another child.

~ His mother paid the doctor to tamper with his semen, her actions following her to the grave unless they succeed in locating the missing, Dr. Phillipson. A woman that didn’t share her motives or intentions and definitely did not offer an explanation much less an apology, completely lacking remorse.

The technician unaware, hence, the wrong samples were switched. Turns out, there are at least three others involved in the travesty. Couples with children who most likely aren't from whom the parents think, other people completely unrelated to either Damon or Olivia. Simply innocent bystanders.

His mother was unconscionable, she personally knew Vivianne, setting her machinations in motion resulting in tragedy... the night his mentally and emotionally unstable wife took their innocent child and got behind the wheel of a car.

They were at a business dinner and ended up at the bar, just Vivianne and himself. Her advances were subtle but then a part of him that needed to be comforted, took over and fed his ego. He welcomed Vivianne's attentions. They got a hotel room but his conscience prevailed, he was wrong and unfaithful, but he didn't sleep with her.

Damon still has a lot of healing to do as he uncovers the depths of his mother’s betrayal and deception, she was instrumental in his demise and destruction.

This is not a book for everyone, it involves doctoring semen samples, an incomplete act of infidelity, a mentally unstable woman that results in the death of his very young child.

If you’re not a fan of manipulative, controlling men, pass this one by, as Damon can leap off the pages as overbearing, however, he suffered tremendous loss, at the hand of his vile, contemptible mother. A woman with only disdain for her only son.

Damon and Olivia erected walls, both trying to be strong, but their losses left them wounded and they recognise this in each other and connect. In Olivia and Alex, Damon recognises that they heal his wounds, balms his soul and makes him feel alive. She and Alex replaced the meaningless depths of nothingness and anger with a deep connection. There is an irritant - her ex boyfriend, Erik, that seems to become transfixed with Olivia.

I ventured into this blindly, not expecting to be enraptured by the host of emotions.
This was thought-provoking.

First of all, I received this book in exchange for an honest review, and I can honestly say that the synopsis definitely caught my attention. I mean, a Vegas trip that follows you home? Yep, it sounds good! Olivia is a single mom who runs her own bakery, and when her friends decide she needs a little vacation and break from life, she stubbornly agree’s to go to Vegas with them. They say what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, but that’s not exactly the case for Olivia. She wakes up after a crazy night out next to an extremely hot guy, Damon Knyght. And that’s not it, there’s also a ring on her finger! Yeah, that happened. Olivia is obviously freaked out, while Damon is totally okay with it all. She basically runs out of the room, gets home, and believes things will work their way out, you know, file an annulment, pretend it never happened, and move on. Well, that’s not really how it goes, of course. Damon is not going to let Olivia walk away quite that easily.

This is where things got a little iffy for me in terms of liking vs. loving this book. I liked Olivia. She’s independent, raising a child on her own, and runs her own business. But, when it comes to Damon, she is so torn and won’t just let things happen. I get it though, she went through a heartbreaking time in her life and lost her first love. Damon is….a little overwhelming? I actually thought he was a borderline stalker at times. While this put me off a little, I guess I came around to the fact that it’s just his personality. When he wants something, he just goes for it, and it doesn’t help that he’s gone through his own issues and has a lot to recover from. Overall, I thought his heart was in the right place, he just had a very possessive way of showing it!

What I liked about this book? The story was unique. Yes, it’s a typical romance with a woman who doesn’t want to fall in love and an overbearing billionaire, but the plot held a little different story that I really did like and thought was something different. I also liked the character development throughout the book, and not only with the main characters, but the side ones too. Towards the end of the book, I did “feel” the emotions of Olivia and Damon, and got a little misty-eyed. What didn’t work for me and this book? To be completely honest, it’s a personal thing, but I think I’m a little over the “overbearing bazillionaire who wants a woman and will do anything and everything to get her”. After I figured out what was going on, I knew what would happen. This isn’t a fault against the author, I mean, most romance books these days are somewhat predictable. It’s just the back and forth between Olivia and Damon that drove me absolutely crazy at times! So overall, I liked this book. Would I recommend it? Yes, if you like the rich guy meets normal girl, throw in a child, some drama, stalker-like behavior, and characters with heart breaking pasts. I haven’t read anything else by Sadie, but I do have a few of her other books, so I think I’ll definitely be checking those out as well. Throughout the book, she did prove that she is a great story teller and definitely great at building the story and her characters.

This is a difficult book to review, because I really enjoy Sadie Grubor's writing, and this book was no exception, it's just that the premise of this book is so untenable. I love the married in Vegas trope, but this one was particularly unusual...It seems Damon sought out and followed Olivia to Vegas, got her drunk and married her because there was a hidden connection between the two of them. What follows is a great deal of stalking, so this is a love story in which a girl falls in love with the stalker who has married her under false pretenses. There's a lot of "deal breakers" involved in this story that are difficult to overlook. There were so many times in this book in which Damon crossed the line into predator, that it was difficult for me to root for this couple. I also think there was one plot point that had a major hole in it...Olivia never took any action to contact or bring action against the fertility clinic that provided her donor sperm and then released her private information to Damon. Olivia granted custody rights to Damon never ensuring that he wasn't actually the anonymous donor she contracted for...She basically took Damon's word that there was a mixup and he was not the anonymous donor. This point made no sense to me.

I think this book could have been so much better with one change and 2 additional scenes.

1. The sex between Damon and Olivia had consent issues...She was drunk both times, and once she asked him to use a condom and he went ahead without one. Given the stalking, the dubious consent issue really pushed this into the unforgivable territory.

2. Missing scene in which Damon showed Olivia proof that the sperm was actually switched and he was a victim. I went through most of the book believing he was just an anonymous donor, and his family paid to have the clinic records hacked. No educated person in this country would allow their small child to be DNA tested for the purposes of child custody without a court order or some proof that the putative parent had some standing.

3. Missing scene in which Damon's mom took responsibility for the sperm switch and selected Olivia as the recipient. It's inconceivable that someone from old money would want their child's sperm to impregnate just anyone thereby giving the child a claim on the estate. We needed a motive for this....It could have been Damon was still grieving the loss of Rachel and his child, and she didn't believe she would have a grandchild and heir without her intervention. I could foresee Damon's mother selecting Olivia because she had an Ivy League degree and ancestors that were on the Mayflower. I can't imagine she's allow a grandchild to be conceived randomly.

VEGAS FOLLOWS YOU HOME is the first book I have read by SADIE GRUBOR.  I love her style, the way she endears you to her characters, and her unique perspective in telling a story.  VEGAS FOLLOWS YOU HOME has everything a great book requires.  It has romance, humor, sex, a great story line, and interesting characters.  This is a "must read"!  It will grab hold of you in the first few pages and keep you guessing to the end.  

Olivia Harlow is a beautiful red head.  She is spirited, kind hearted, fun, loyal, and a wonderful single mother to Alex.  Olivia owns the highly successful bakery, HARLOW CAKES.  She works extremely hard and has a wonderful support staff that are as close to family as you can get.  They have an awesome, fun time together and you will quickly fall in love with how she cares so deeply for them. 

Alex, Olivia's son, is the love of her life.  He is eighteen months old and is so cute you want to reach right into the book and squeeze his cheeks.  

Damon Knyght is extremely handsome, filthy rich, powerful, chivalrous, extremely thoughtful and HOT!!!!  He is the CEO of a billion dollar corporation and used to getting his way.  Damon has a secret.  A huge secret and he puts a plan into action to be able to reveal what he has discovered.

Olivia and her friends plan a Girls Gone Wild weekend in Vegas to celebrate a huge job that HARLOW BAKERY had just completed.  This weekend changed Olivia's life; she met the gorgeous Damon Knyght.  She had been drinking, one thing led to another, and the next thing you know, they are MARRIED!  This plays right into Damon's plan.  

He finally reveals his secret to Olivia, but it doesn't work out the way Damon hopes.  Olivia still wants an annulment, but Damon is determined to have Olivia and Alex be his family.  He will not give up.  Olivia and Alex are everything to him. Olivia starts to have feelings for Damon, but she tries to suppress them. 

The struggle between Olivia and Damon is heartbreaking.  Their passion is powerful.  Damon makes a wonderful father to Alex and he tries so hard to make things right.  Will he be able to break down Olivia's defenses and prove they can have a happily ever after?

“I’m not a remedy or anyone’s sanity. Alex and I are not a bandage for your sadness.”

After a night in Vegas, Olivia wakes up with a hazy memory, in a strange room, and with a husband; a husband that won’t go away. Damon is adamant that they had a connection which should be explored and he will not grant her petition for annulment, even going so far as to show up in her town!

There’s something out of place in the whole situation; secrets are kept and boundaries are tested. Is this relationship something that needs to be explored or is Damon just a man with an unhealthy obsession?

I want to start off by saying I loved the premise of this story. The past events that culminated to bring Olivia and Damon together create a great story. I love how secrets are woven into secrets, and then those come together to create the path of the story. There was so many turns of events that I was never quite caught up & I loved that!

I also enjoyed the relationships between characters. Olivia’s friends, Damon’s family, and the others who popped in and out of the story all had interesting interactions. I loved the support of Olivia’s friends and how different they all were to each other. Damon’s family also held a stark contrast between members, and I enjoyed seeing their personalities develop through the story’s events.

One thing that threw me off track was Olivia, and sometimes Damon’s, attitudes. I completely understand where Olivia is coming from, mourning a lost love and locking yourself up behind a wall. But some of her reactions, for me, were downright obnoxious. I know that in love, we are often our own worst enemies, but for me this wasn’t represented in some of Olivia’s outward responses. The same with Damon. He was a bit over the top at times. I would have been seriously concerned if some of his antics happened in real life, and for me, that caused parts of the story to lack for me.

Overall, I enjoyed the story and the concept. I loved that their love didn’t come easy, the story was always interesting, and the plot just kept twisting. A good read, for sure.

Well I can honestly say I have read everything written by Sadie Grubor and once again I enjoyed every minute of it.
VEGAS follows you home, what happens when you have too much to drink and lose control once in your life! Single mother Olivia Harlow heads to Vegas with her friends after completing one of the biggest jobs of her career as a baker.
Olivia has had a rough time, she lost the love of her life at an early age, as a result she decided that the only way she was going to have a child was via an anonymous donor. Unfortunately there was a mix up which she didn’t know about.
The father of her child, Damon Knyght, was informed of the mix up and set his sights on finding if the mix up had produced any children.
Damon, after losing his wife and child in a car accident thought everything good in his life had ended. Could the fact that he may possibly have another child in the world help to heal him?
Olivia refuses to believe this is really happening. I mean how often is it you end wake up married to your a one night stand? Or that the one night stand then follows you home, wanting to get to know you, only to find out he already had a plan.
His bossy ways amused me, I did have quite a few laugh out loud moments throughout this book. Damon can’t see how crazy he must seem to everyone around him at times. But when you meet his mother you kind of understand the crazy!
Another fabulous read from a talented author and I can’t wait to see what she brings out next.

When I picked up this book I thought it would be something different from what it was.

As I started reading the book it started out fine. However, once the H & h come together I was wondering if I missed something. I wasn't sure if this was going to be a story along the lines of Consequences, by Aleatha Roming. Given the blurb, I thought the story would be more light hearted.

I guess what bugged me was how Damon became a stalker type. What made it worse was that he was called that numerous times by Olivia as she would refer to him as such, both to his face and in her inner ramblings. And if she thought he was stalker, why would she even entertain the idea of letting Damon stay in her apartment?

Another point that I had a hard time believing was the fact that Damon could even get his hands on the info that brings them together and then basically believe that they should get married and become a family. And again, Olivia allowed him into her life. Um, I don't care how much money Damon had, she would of beat him in any court and could have stopped him from ever stepping foot into her life any further.

It was just too far fetched for me to look beyond and I couldn't even bring myself to accept it for the sake of the story.

Wow, What happens in Vegas...

I was riveted to this story; I couldn't put it down! This is not my first read from this author (I loved Falling Stars and its novella) and what I love about her style is that the characters really come to life. The reader is so vested in their lives, that you become an active participant of the journey, feeling every emotion and experiencing every high and low. Now, without going into any details about the plot (which its discovery is part of the fun of this story) I seem to have a different takeaway than some of the other reviewers. As much as I liked Olivia, and could definitely understand her misgivings at the beginning of the story, her behavior frustrated me much more than Damon's did. At least with Damon, you knew where he stood; he was always clear and honest about his feelings, unlike Olivia. What I also found to be pretty ironic, was the paradigm shift of Erik and Damon (pretty clever I might add). Oh, I also need to mention how much I have enjoyed Kindle Unlimited, as I was about to enjoy this great read as a subscriber. Thanks Sadie, and I am so looking forward to the next in the Falling Stars series!

Olivia Harlow, is a single mother to a little boy named Alex. Olivia's friends talk her into taking a weekend get away to Vegas. She ended up waking up in bed married to stranger, Damon Knyght, who is a billionaire.

Olivia runs home and attempts to have the marriage annulled. Damion won't let that happen and becomes stalkish. I was almost afraid for her for being in this bizarre situation.

The story has some twists that explain why Damion is the way he is. When details starting coming out about Damion it makes Olivia look at things differently.

Both Olivia and Damion have devastating losses in their past that also feeds into the story.

I was leery about Damon in the beginning but was fully in his corner at the end

This book is very well written and keeps you hooked until the very end. I couldn't put it down. This book is an absolute must read!

I really hope that there is a future book about Olivia's friends Alfonso and Mercedes.

This book surprised the hell out of me!

Olivia is fiercely independent and as stubborn as they come. She owns her own bakery, has incredibly loyal and loving friends and a son whom her whole world revolves around. In short, she lives in her so well guarded bubble nothing is getting through.

That is until Damon sets his sights on her. Damon could have any woman he wants. Charming, successful, sexy and rich - he's not used to the word no. So when he wakes up married to Olivia after a drunken night in Vegas, he cant believe his ears when she asks for an annulment.

As secrets are exposed Olivia and Damon fight their growing attraction and their shattered pasts to see if they can get passed Olivia's greatest fears to become the family Damon craves.

I hope Felciity and Mercedes get their own stories soon! They're awesome!

I was given this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I found this to be a very enjoyable read, and the characters to be very well developed. Damon who appears to initially a very powerful man ( and a bit of a stalker), seeks out Olivia for certain reasons. While we aren't privy to what at first, I found him quite entertaining in his stalkery (yes my own word). Olivia on the other hand doesn't quite know what to make out of him. She reacts to him in a way that scares her to her core. This is a wonderful story that has developed out of tragedies of both main characters. I look forward to reading more by Sadie Grubor. 4.4/5 stars reviewed for Book Reviews and TAke-Overs

i enjoyed this book, how Sadie makes you hate him & feel sorry for her, but then wanna slap her and adore him lol
At first I hated him (Damon) what kind of man does that to a woman?
He lost everything so goes in search of what's missing from his life,or is he ? but how far will he go to get his own way.
Olivia loved & lost she finds happiness the only way she believes she can, until she goes to Vegas, then everything changes. she's afraid to love again, for fear of it all being taken again.
Great unusual story line. Gripping, sad and beautiful at the same time.
Was it fate ?
5* read I totally loved it 'recommended read <3 <3

UGH OMG! I'm in loveeee!

This book is just, ah I don't know where to start!
It is so incredibly well written and I'm not ashamed to admit I laughed and cried A LOT!

Damon and Olivia are amazing characters but to be honest all in the book are! I have the urge to read it again already and I only finished a few hours ago.. help me?!

Will definitely be reading more from Sadie Grubor and I REALLY hope there might be more to come from this book :p

Read this book. You won't regret it.
Warning: all family and housework will most likely get neglected during the reading of this novel.

I loved this book. I get why some people wouldn't get this book as it takes crazy to a new level! But I like crazy it makes for an interesting read, one that has the pages turning.

Damon made the book for me! He is a fabulous character! I was thinking, OMG, what is he gonna do next! Liv is an interesting character and I'm so glad she kept her dignity and integrity throughout.

All I will say is this book is very out of the box, you will hate the Hero but love him at the same time, it's quite far fetched but in a way that's really good, it's fiction folks!

It cheered me up no end and now I'm in A book funk! Which is no fun for a blogger with deadlines.

4 1/2 - 5 stars!!

This was one of my absolute favorite twilight-fic; and at the time it wasn't completed.

But now, it's complete. And it's AWESOME!!

Oh my God!! That was AMAZING! The story didn't disappoint! And it's still as intense and beyond beautiful, as I remember!

I still love how possessive and obsessive Damon was! Wasn't a fan of how reluctant Olivia was, though.

Still it was an amazing journey!!

The story needs just a little bit of editing; still that didn't dim how lovely it was.

Great work!

Liv is an amazing baker and is hired for a huge party in New York for a big named CEO and his company. To celebrate this huge accomplishment her and her friends go to Vegas. You know what they say... What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas? Well not for Liv. A husband follows you home. Damon Knyght goes to Vegas to find the woman he cares about. Marrying her when she's drunk is one way to keep her. What happens when she tells him she doesn't want him? Will he go away, or fight for what he wants? Find out in this awesome read!!!!

Having never heard of the author I was gifted this copy by herself.

I can honestly say wow wow wow

We can all pick a book up that has a handsome man and women with the typical love story route, NOT this book omg you feel every emotion and feeling that's is written in this book the depth to which the story goes is just unbelievable.

The amount of time iv laughed and shouted but the ugly tears you will experience but the outcome from the whole story is just wow.

Loved reading this and now iv discovered the author I will be following from now on go and buy this truly amazing read
