Julie Jarnagin has done it again in giving readers a sweet amazing romance with The Vegas Proposal. The characters were authentic with realistic emotions and desires. The plot made you believe that it could easily happen in Vegas where wedding chapels and performers are galore. Fake verses real, it is a struggle for everyone, the setting and career choices of Claire and Ben gives it added emphasis.
Ms. Jarnagin has an easy style that simply pulls you into the story while you are also developing d

What an interesting idea for a love story. Claire and Ben are very different people, but they bring out the best in each other. Will they be able to overcome their differences and find true love? This was a fun sweet romance. I really enjoyed both the characters and the changes they went through. I wish the ending had been longer, but overall I enjoyed it.

The book's title intrigued me, and the first chapter, had me hooked. In fact, I could hardly put it down! About the time I thought Ben and Claire were both ready to take a chance, something happens. All their ups and downs are realistic enough, and made them seem more real. I would definitely recommend the book to my friends, and anyone who enjoys romantic novels! ...more

This story is mostly light hearted and fun but it also looks at important issues like staying true to yourself while chasing your dream and commitment in relationships. The Vegas setting doesn't overpower the story and there is a strong sense of community among the chapel workers and vendors. I enjoyed the conflict and contrast of romanticized wedding days versus making a marriage work over the course of a lifetime. Really good story and I can't wait to read more from this author.

My Thoughts...

Sometimes all I want is "Comfort Food", well that was me the last few days. All I wanted was a quick fix of "Comfort Food" reading. This book was just what I needed, nothing deep, no steamy bedroom scenes. It was impossible not to cheer for the characters in the story.

I think I would have to put this book on my list of "Mind Candy" books. Sweet, Funny, Fluffy and Fun. It made a fun read for a few cold winter days. I enjoyed the book enough to award it 4**** Vegas Stars.

Despite all the complications, this is such a sweet story!
Claire wants someone to love for the rest of her life, a love like her grandparents had. Ben is afraid of commitment because he's never seen real love before. After meeting Claire and hearing what she says to a would-be bride, Ben has some thinking to do. A fake marriage might not be the best choice for his heart.
The book is full of interesting, well-developed characters, such true to life people.
