Marrying a stranger tops the list of things you should never do in Las Vegas, but I did it anyway.

The entire night was my idea. I was the one who suggested a wake-up-with-a-tiger kind of night. Instead, I woke up with a ring on my finger and Vince Rossi in my bed.

Vince, who was nothing like I thought he was and everything I never knew I needed. Suddenly I was falling head-

Good Time is aptly named because this book was one heck of a good time! I haven't had so much fun while reading in quite a while. Jana's books always make me laugh, but the heroine in this book was truly a hoot. She had me cracking up. Payton was truly 'legiterally' <--You'll get it after you read ;)

If you've read Good Girl you know Payton as the crazy and impulsive best friend of Lydia who always speaks her mind, has the most random things to say, loves cheese-it's and makes her v
Mindy Lou's Book Review
I absolutely loved Good Time!!! I just really love quirky characters who can make me bust out laughing. Payton had me rolling so many times reading this book. She's the very definition of quirky and little bit insane. I loved her. This girl was a riot.

Payton isn't going to be everyone's cup of tea because she is that silly kind of quirky and I know not everyone can appreciate that. I mean, this girl made up her own vocabulary when she couldn't find the right words she needed. I legiterally want

Favourite Rom Com of 2018!!!

Jana Aston is a one click author for me. Has been since I read her first story. I adore her style of writing and am guaranteed to LOL.

Payton and Vince's story is the kind of book that had me smiling the whole way through. Payton is a nut. Total nut and I loved her. Vince is all sorts of stoic hottie & together they are Rom Com gold.

Witty one liners, seriously hot chemistry and just the right amount of feels makes this one of her best books to date. Add in side ch

Probably one of the best romcoms that I have read in the past three years.


I picked up this book knowing it would be a Good Time (I know you see what I did there). I just knew because Jana Aston always makes me laugh. ALWAYS. And she did not disappoint. Seriously. There wasn't a single thing wrong with this book. In fact, everything that could go right, went right.

Payton is the friend of our Good Girl, Lydia. You remember her, right? She found love with our favorite Rhys. Payton was the crazy friend.

“I can’t tell if you’re serious or insane.”

Payton and Vince are “legiterally” a good time!!
“They say that love conquers all, but that’s a lie. Love fucks up all the time. I’ve seen firsthand how much love cannot conquer. Love is an asshole.”

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…Jana Aston is a freaking ROM-COM GENIUS! I’m not even playing here, folks. Her mind petrifies, excites, and captivates me one word at a time. The last time that I laughed out loud this hard was probably when she released her last book. I’m going to make this short and sweet because the more I talk about G

YES a very GOOD TIME indeed.
This book had a whole lotta crazy going on, both storyline and characters.
I stayed up until after 2am to finish. I literally couldn't put it down. So tired right now.
I am "feeling" the love for Payton. 💕💖
Payton is such a quintessential Jana Aston type of heroine : ballsy, impulsive, slightly crazy and super hilarious to boot.
What can I say. I totally/thoroughly enjoyed this book right from the start until the very last page.

“So one look and you’re ready to spend the rest of your life with him?”
“Don’t be ridiculous. I said I might, I never said it was a done deal.”

I really didn’t know what I was expecting it but is was not this. I enjoyed this quite a lot.
This is a romantic comedy that I really LOL.
The writing was easy and fast to read. This is a book that in about 1h you finish. Witch is what happen to me and I really liked that, because I didn’t spend the entire day reading and got to do other things

I legiterally don’t have words right now but I feel all kinds of giddy and happy.

Okay, so let me tell you a few things about this book.

1. You will not get thru a single page without laughing.
2. Payton: she is quirky, sweet, unconventional in every aspect of everything (lol), unintentionally over the top, knows what she wants and is not afraid to jump for it. She has her own dictionary of words that make zero sense until she explains it and then it's perfectly legit ;) A little on the crazy sid
That Jana Aston is such an awesome writer!!!

I'm in love with this book like I'm I love with the author! Ms. Aston has such a way with words and making a story into something entertaining and fun. Not many people can write a rom-com like she can. I feel like every book she comes out with gets better and better.

This book is about Vince and Payton. This could be read as a standalone, but if you've read Good Girl then you'll remember that Payton is Lydia's friend and roommate. The entire story is w

Jana Aston is a rom-com genius, and she proves that once again with Good Time. With an impromptu wedding, a crazy but lovable heroine and a hero who is positively swoon-worthy, Payton and Vince's story definitely lives up to its title.

"He looks like just my type. Tall, dark, handsome and hung."

Payton and Vince were two of the best characters I've read in a while. There was nothing about them that I found unlikeable, and their banter was hilarious and entertaining. Payton was so funny and outra

I legiteraly FLOVED this book! Admittedly I haven't read a Jana book I haven't loved but I think Payton is fantabulous!! And Vince....sooo sexy! This book is laugh out loud funny. I am now craving Cheez-Its and Del Taco. And to recapture my crazy. I love our cast of characters: Lydia, Canon, Lawson, Rhys. Our new friend Mark. I love the hints at the rest of the Janaverse. And it's set in Vegas. This town is home to many an insane moment and it is so appropriate for the Janaverse. And I am so hop ...more

OMFG THIS WAS MY FAVOURITE ROMCOM OF THIS YEAR, ofcos anytime you read Jana Aston book you in for an amazing ride. Jana is an absolute master at giving us magnificent romcoms.

This book had me smiling and feeling good from page one.
Peyton is absolutely quirky and crazy. Yet you can't help falling inlove with her. I Loved her word making and how she saw Vince. She is someone I can see having a drink and good laugh with.

Just when you think Ms. Aston can't top her last rom/com she actually does. Every. Single. Time. If you read Good Girl, you know, like myself, wanted to know about Payton and her crazy antics. This book does not disappoint the silliness, and inner monologues that run through Payton. We all want a Vince in our lives. I needed this book for the great laughs I had throughout this read. Well played, Ms. Aston, well played.

Have yourself a good time well with Good time ;)

Vince just doesnt understand his woman at times, "Vince pauses, the bag hovering over my countertop. “What?” He squints at me like I’m talking nonsense. Then he does a slow perusal of what I’m wearing and scowls. “So you’re in your pajamas and you have no food in the house? What were you going to eat for dinner, Payton?” Payton is legitimately just so cute, I don't think the woman realizes how much she drives her man bonkers, “no. Pole dancing was me taking an interest in your hobbies.” I love t ...more

I'm so happy this did not disappoint! Just as good as Good Girl. I loved it!

So, now... Can we get Canon's story? Pretty please?
Good Hack could be a title, lol.

Initially when I started this, I was slightly worried that it wouldn't be for me, but my misgivings were very quickly silenced.

Peyton was, quirky, bold and generally funny as hell. Also she’s a strong leading lady, super confident in her sexuality and who she is, which was great to see/read.

I do wish it was dual POV, just so I could get some deeper insight into Vince, but the fact that it isn’t doesn’t deter from the fun you will have.

Absolutely loved this book. The heroine is hilarious and Vince is just everything you want in a man. Laughed out loud, swooned and finished with a smile on my face.

This book is one of my 2018 Top Reads.
Vince Rossi is ALL. THE. THINGS. Sorry Boyd.
And Payton. Oh my God. That girl.
Fearless and joyful and recklessly vulnerable.
Blurting out whatever's on her mind and in her heart in this insanely hilarious, stream of conscious monologue that's a one way ticket to crazy town.
She not wearing her heart on her sleeve , she's lobbing it like a Major Leaguer's fastball straight at Vince's head. But Vince just catches one handed, smiles his oh so adorable secret smile

"You know what they say about Vegas, right? Don’t ask, don’t tell? Just kidding. I’m going to tell you everything. Just give me a moment. And an aspirin."

OMG, GOOD TIME is fabulously fun, flirty, and freaking hilarious! Hands down one of the BEST books I have read this year.

Payton and Vince are perfection. Payton is a bit crazy like Everly from Jana's book RIGHT but magnified 100x. I love her outrageous ideas, love of Cheez-Its (she's my spirit animal), and penchant for thinking out loud.

Recommendation appeared on USA Today’s Happy Ever After on November 6, 2018.

Why it’s a must-read: I invariably have the three same thoughts after finishing a romantic comedy by Jana Aston:
* This is my favorite book by Jana Aston.
* This is my favorite rom-com ever.
* I have absolutely no idea where Jana Aston comes up with the hilarious, quirky and wonderfully absurd things that she writes, but she’s a comedic genius.

I can’t adequately describe Good Girl, because it’s truly one-of-a-kind. I can ju

My sides are aching from laughing so much while reading Jana Aston’s latest romantic comedy, Good Time. This standalone novel is a parallel story to the author’s prior novel, Good Girl. There is ample set up so that new readers have plenty of information from the prior book to thoroughly enjoy the hilarity of Vince and Payton’s story in Good Time.

I adored Payton’s stream-of-consciousness internal dialogue and creative twists on the English language. She is the sole narrator of the book, which gi

Good Time is a real good time!! It is laugh out loud funny, sweet and swoony.
Good Time is a standalone but you meet Payton, and probably fall madly in love with her as I did, in Good Girl. She is sassy and funny and outrageously quirky and Vince has no choice but to be swept into her spell.
