The ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was a very fun read. The four girls were all funny and their friendship dynamic was really well portrayed. I enjoyed the chemistry between the two main characters, the romance was well done. Even though it was all a bit rushed, especially the ending and what is to happen in the main characters' future, the book was a nice read and so I truly recommend it.

I enjoyed this book. A group of old friends come together in Las Vegas for a much needed relaxing vacation. Bonni who needed to relax because she is a detective ends up winning big and the girls are upgraded to a suite. Than she meets Quinn who is there for a poker tournament. Quinn gave up the family biz to pursue his passion playing poker. He is really good. But after meeting Bonni he realizes maybe there is more to life. I loved the authors way of putting you into the setting. I could really ...more

This is a quick and easy read when college friends who are now scattered around the country decide to reunite for a mini vacation to Vegas. They couldn't be more different (understatement). This story centers around Bonni who is a detective working in Toronto and has been buried in her work and needs a break. When she plays the free chips at the slot machine they're given for staying at the hotel she wins and wins big. The hotel upgrades them to a post suite and she generously shares her good fo ...more

What a fun book, I could not put it down! Bonni and her girlfriends are such a fun and wild cast of characters. They really make this book so fun and adventurous as we see all of thier fun as. They explore Vegas! I love that Bonni won money in the beginning of this book, it really shows her true character that she wants the girls to have the best vacation so she makes sure they have spa treatments, show tickets and club VIP passes. I love how Quinn and Bonni meet and you can feel the connection ...more

It was a very fun and quick read. Story revolved around friends who go for a weekend in Vegas. All girl weekend soon becomes something more for Bonni when a handsome gambler sets his eyes on her. Quinn is in Vegas for gambling tournaments, but as soon as he sees Bonni dancing he knows that she is special. Soon they find themselves drawn to each other. What was supposed to be a weekend to unwind for Bonni, and that of gambling for Quinn, becomes so much more for both of them. But they can't work, ...more

A weekend in Vegas is usually a whirlwind  of activity, where nothing is too serious, and fun memories are created.  This book perfectly encapsulates a weekend in Vegas. It's a quick read with likeable characters.  Best of all, it's light and doesn't take itself too seriously.  Every rom-com has to have that will they/won't they moment, but there are times when an author tries to make it too serious.  Not the case here; even that "oh no" moment is brief and fits the tone.  If you're looking for ...more

This was a fun and steamy read about a girls weekend in Vegas. It felt like an episode of Sex & The City. It was a quick read and there was no angst.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me a copy.

A wacky and wired thirty something trio of girlfriends go wild in Vegas. The author creates genuinely believable and very descriptive events that these ladies get up to. There is so much going on that you sometimes lose track of what is happening to whom.

Bonni sent out an email as her latest case had been kicking her butt and she wants to go to Vegas for a getaway weekend with her best friends - her girls from college they had met in a women studies class- Celia, Ava, and Fredi. The girls always had each others backs. Bonni couldn’t be more grateful for her girls. They all decided they could get away for the first weekend in March. Bonni gets to the casino bar early to get the lay-of-the- land. Bonni is a cop Bonni knew to: always beware of your ...more

Vegas is the place where you let go, experience life in a way you can't in other places, and then you walk away, leaving what happened there. At least that's the theory. We all know things have a way of following you.

Bobbi, a detective, is enjoying a girls' getaway with her friends and to her utter shock, wins a jackpot. Of course, that means upgrading...everything. LOL That includes a sexy dress and a VIP booth where she sees him. Why not have a vacation fling why she's at it?

4 stars and here's why:

This is a quick read, and highly entertaining. Friends go to Vegas for a much-needed vacay and suddenly Bonni, a detective, wins big and her suite is upgraded. Soon she meets Quinn who is there for a poker tourney and sparks fly. He’s not your typical poker player, but he did give up the family business to pursue his dream of becoming one. If you

Such fun book that I actually laughed out loud in some places. I liked getting to know all the friends and seeing how the author took them on their Las Vegas adventures. I'm looking forward to the next books. the cover is just the cutest thing too!

Bonni Connolly never wins anything, but when she scores the jackpot while in Vegas with her friends, it seems lady luck is finally on her side in a good way. Then her night gets even better when she meets Quinn Bryant - a man her complete opposite. For one, he's a professional poker player and she's a cop. Gambling and law enforcement don't mix. Not in her world. Yet, the more time Bonni spends with Quinn, the more she finds herself falling for Mr. Wrong. Will Quinn be able to convince Bonni to

I was provided an advanced copy of this book from NetGalley for my honest thoughts.

What Happens in Vegas is a great read if you are looking for something fun, easy and light.

Four quirky women in Vegas on a girls weekend…..what could possibly happen, right?!?!

I enjoyed the plot of this book, even though it is somewhat typical of a HEA romance book. I really liked getting to know the women and their characteristics and look forward to seeing what is in store for them in the upcoming books.

This was a nice story, but nothing really seemed to happen! I kept waiting for the big plot twist or turmoil or ANYTHING, but it just kind of chugged along. The h is a cop, but it had absolutely no bearing on the story whatsoever. She could have had any profession and it wouldn't have changed the story.
It was a sweet romance, but I don't buy the "I love you" thing after one weekend together. That's called lust, not love. That kind of ruined it for me. And the fact that both people were willing

This was a good quick enjoyable read and this is Bonni and Quinn's story. Bonni is in Vegas catching up with her best friends who she has known since college. When she hits the jackpot she treats them to whatever they want. While out in a VIP club she meets Quinn who is a professional poker player and in Vegas for a tournament. The chemistry between them is immediate and off the charts hot but not being much of a gambler she is not sure about him. This was a good read but I have to admit I did n ...more

This was just okay for me. The writing didn't flow as well as I would have liked, it was hard to get into and stay interested in for me. I didn't really feel invested in the characters. I read an ARC, so I don't know if it like this in the final version, but using ', instead of " when someone was talking was VERY distracting. I guess it can be an author's preference, but I'm used to the double quotation marks. This was a first for me from this author, but I would be willing to giver her another ...more

The scene where the M/F mc meet was very cheesy. The constant cackling between the friends was annoying too...do grown women really act/talk like that? I’ve never seen it.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Thank you, NetGalley and Entangled Publishing.

3.5⭐

This was a quick and easy read, and I enjoyed the friendship/ reunion between the four female characters Bonni, Ava, Celia and Fredi. As well as the romance between Bonni and Quinn.

Yet, I didn't feel the two came together, particularly well, and for me the romance kind of took over. But there were plenty of fun moments. As well a few sparks. So if you're in the mood for an extremely light-hearted read, with engaging characters, then you should certainly check out What Happens In Vegas.

When friends go to Vegas, craziness ensues. This is your typical Vegas book. Crazy times. Unexpected adventures. A romance thrown in. There felt like there was something missing though. I felt this was more story about friends reliving their youth than a romance novel.
