She’s a good-girl control freak. He’s a bad boy in need of a clean image. Will these opposites attract or self-destruct?
Scarlett Kelly is the poster child for responsible living. Growing up as the daughter of the town floozy she’s made it her mission to be the exact opposite. So when she wakes up naked and hungover in bed with a bad-boy rockstar, Scarlett bolts immediately. But she never expected him to follow her home… and tell her they’re married!
The plot was fun and seems like it should be a cute, easy read. I found a lot of it to be choppy and contrived as well as a bit dull. It felt like the author was trying too hard during the funny scenes and flirty scenes. They didn't come off as effortless or organic.
I ended up skimming ...more
This was such a good story. It had all the tropes - drunk wedding, rock star and children's book author, bad boy and virgin, secret baby. It wasn't dark and depressing given some of the contents like Gavin's best friend's death. It was an easy read with just the right touch of drama, lighthearted wit, and interesting storyline.
I LOVED this! The writing is fun, fresh, and flirty! This was so much fun to read. We have straight laced Scarlet and bad boy rock star Gavin. They meet, drink, and marry in Vegas. They stay married to help Gavin's image and in turn Scarlet gets some money to help pay off her family's farm.
I love stories that start off as one thing and completely surprise. This story had way more depth and emotion than I anticipated. You feel everything these two have been through in their past ...more
I don’t even know where to start the girl was a hypocritical, slut shaming, red neck who thinks anyone who has sex is a hussy or “Slutty McSlut Slut” as she so eloquently put it but carrying guns i ...more
Cover=gorgeous!! I'll buy a copy just to have the cover to look at! This is a fun, romantic comedy that anyone can relate to (or at least their alter egos can). Jami's creativity is fantastic. I laughed out loud often during the read ...more
I'm happy to have picked up this book as I needed something light, humourous, lovely yet with a dose of "oh my God, what's really gonna happen at the end with the nemesis's threats".
I loved Scarlet and Gavin's dynamic and the supporting cast was awesome. And the fact that the writing was flawless and fresh were the cherries on top of this cute lovely bookcake :D
I mean, I knew I'd have issues with this book from the very first pages when the heroine starts a vicious slut-shaming cycle, calling herself "Slutty McSlut Slut" for sleeping (or so she thought) with a guy she barely knew. And really, the amount of times she calls herself - or other women - "trump", "slut", "hussy" or "whore" is staggering. I'm perfectly aware internalized sexism is a thing and all, BUT COME ON, ho ...more
Overall Rating ★★★★
Characters & Character Development ★★★
Story: This was a pretty good story. I found some similarities between this story and another one where the main female character gets drunk and marries a rock star. I can't say that I loved all of it. It drives me crazy when a person is being taken advantage of by others in the book. Therefore, the whole situation with Poppy annoyed the hell out of me. Also the situation with the company that s ...more
One thing I did find interesting and maybe I'm wrong, but when Poppy sends the blackmail material to Louann, I thought that made no sense. Louanne being an attorney and this being a felony would have to report it to the authorities as an officer of the court, right?
Anyway, it's my first time with this author's material and I am interested in reading the next boo ...more
This down here, is my review:
The thing about this book is, that there is no long foreplay. Before you even know, you're fully in it. As promised is this all in all, full with wit and remarkable characters - So, ...more

Scarlett is caring, funny, sensitive, she loves her family and she isn't afraid of sticking to her ethics and beliefs. Gavin is charming, sexy, smart, and loyal to the people important to him. They would both move the earth and the moon to protect their families and their beloved persons!
I loved those first chapters! Loved the premise. Loved her writing voice. I wanted to read more, but there wasn ...more
I nearly pee in my pants just with the opening scene.
The two main characters are wonderful, smart, kind, crazy in their own style.
Gavin is not only a rock star with a dark side due to his past, he can be a mischievous and good hearted man, while Scarlet fought her wild side all her life to be the perfect normal woman to not be compared to her mother.
But they have a pretty good group to take care of them, from the full of life and craziness Honey to straight in her boots Luanne a ...more
