Talk about a first impression gone all bad. Loads of fun and so much more. He was a mess drunk out of his mind and she needed a break. One wild night for him confessions for her and a bond is made. She needs a fresh start, he needs to sober up. Great fast read to start off a new series.

The prequel to 8 weeks.
If you have read 8 weeks you will want to read this as it covers the events that led to 8 weeks.

Yes! FINALLY! We get to find out what happened! Did you read 8 Weeks? Did you wonder WTH happened in Vegas?? Well, wonder no more. We finally get answers!

In this short prequel to the Time For Love series, the author tells what Cal was really up to when he went to Vegas with his buddies. Because when he gets home to his love, Shelly, he has no clue what happened, and it jeopardizes his marriage.

This was a perfect start to one of my favorite series. Plus we get introduced to a new character - on

Whoa

I read 8 weeks, and I definitely thought that Cal had cheated on poor Shelly. But after reading this, and knowing that the only thing he did wrong was drink too much, I felt bad for him. Even though he did help Simone out with her perception of the type of guy she wants in her life.

Good read.

She has the patience of a saint!

Can you imagine confessing your love and getting laughed at? That is what happened to Simone. Now she is trying to get over her embarrassment. And a coworker gives her an opportunity she can't pass up. A week off (with pay, just not tips) if she will help get a drunk ass stranger home! Here's what she didn't count on... as she is getting him to his room, he pukes all over her... Now what's a girl to do?

Favorite passage: “Shelly,” Cal murmured, and my eyes flew ope

A typical Vegas trip bucks party. Too much, drinking, partying, watching strippers and gambling. When Cal decides he’s had more than enough and heading back to the room. Just one problem where is his room and where are his friends. Stumbling into a strip joint he asks if they know? He’s in such a bad state he has no clue where he is, where he’s going or where his friends are. One of the girls gets him sorted and back in his room safely, but she decides to spend the night too! I’ve only given fou ...more

What Happened in Vegas by Bethany Lopez (A Time for love series prequel) I was so worried going into this story. I have previously read 8 weeks and I loved it and I did not want the author to break my heart with knowing what happened that night. I have to say this short story left me feeling complete. I loved seeing another character from another book and would love to see Simone get her own story of her time in Mexico.

This was a super short read at just 48 pages. Its a prequel to 8 Weeks which I was getting ready to read. I debated on whether to read it first or after but I'm one that really needs spoilers. It was told solely from the stripper's point of view. I'm glad I read it and am looking forward to starting 8 Weeks.

A very short story about 3 friends who in Vegas for a bachelor party and one of them gets left behind in a strip joint. One of the strippers takes pity on Cal and gets him back to his hotel. A few mishaps happen along the way.
I was disappointed in the fact that Cal was happily married for 6 years and yet Simone would have ruined that and slept with him if he had been willing.

For all of us who read 8 Weeks, I have to say I loved this! The entire time I read 8 Weeks and while reading other books in the series, I wondered about what really happened. This gives us our answers and it was everything we imagined! Cal is the best and truly loves Shelly and Simone is one tough woman! Can't wait to read her story!

Happy reading!

1 Night

I read this after I read 8 Weeks. Glad I found it. It answered all my questions about that night. Won't give it away. But it would have been nice to read before the other story.

Short read, containing too many typos.
Needs better editing.

I really enjoyed this prequel and want to continue on to the series. My copy had lots of typos however. Hope they fix these since it can be annoying.

First impression is wrong. This book was kind of disappointing. Because through out the entire series awaiting this book you always know in the back of your mind what is going to happen. Dont get me wrong this is a great story. But just what happened with these 2 characters disappointed me. I still love the series.
