Fighter pilot Ben Rutledge loves his solitude. Which means spending a month of leave in overcrowded, over-glitzy Las Vegas isn’t up his alley, especially after his friend ditches him. His first inclination is to bow out, and quickly. Instead, he finds himself sharing drinks—and a whole lot more—with a sexy woman celebrating her birthday. After all, it’s just one night, and ...more

After a wild night in Vegas, they, of course, wake up married! And they have no memory of it.
All Vegas couples are the same! I really wonder how much or what these people drink so that they don't remember getting married at all. And didn't I read/see/hear this plot like 1000 times?

Ummm... nope! I'll pass!

Ben, a pilot, is not happy. He prefers solitude, yet here he is, stuck in Vegas on a month of leave. His friend, well, former friend now as he ditched him. His first thought is to get the heck out of there and get back to his quiet life, but he doesn't. Instead, he's sharing drinks and laughs with a woman there celebrating her birthday. Staying a few more hours won't hurt anything. He can always leave the next day as he'd planned.

Megan barely has time for anything, such as a stable relationship,

Cute, funny, sexy, with HEA.

No triggers, no OW/OM drama.

What happens in Vegas doesn't always stay in Vegas. Not in the real world anyway. A little relaxation in Sin City becomes a wild ride for two strangers. For a loner with the best of intentions and a wild child with escape on her mind, a few too many glasses of liquid courage has them putting a ring on it. The problem is neither can remember where, when or why. Except when it starts to become all too clear. Not only have they lost their minds but if they don't step carefully they just might lose ...more

Accidentally in Love with the Pilot by Teri Anne Stanley was a delightfully addictive read. It’s charming, witty, and irresistibly entertaining.

I’m so incredibly smitten with this book! Within the first few pages, I knew I would enjoy this and I really did. It’s not emotionally intense or moving, but the storyline was so absurdly fun and humorous. And even if it wasn’t an emotional or heart-rending story, there were some good moments that had me tearing up. Sometimes, an easy and fast paced fl

Megan has no time for a life of her own.  She is on call day and night for her family.  Picking up the dry cleaning, taking kids to recitals, fixing costumes, you name it she does it.  But on the night of her birthday bash she meets a handsome stranger and wakes up with a ring on her hand.

Ben is a pilot for the Navy.  He is an introvert who is passed over for promotions due to his lack of interest in socialization.  He was supposed to be camping on his leave, but his friend stood him up and now

Thank you to NetGalley, the publisher and author for an ARC copy of the ebook. As always, an honest review.

Accidentally in Love with the Pilot was a bit underwhelming. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoyed the story, but it wasn't quite what I expected. Based on the title and summary I thought it would be a typical sexy contemporary romance strongly featuring an alpha male who is a pilot. What we got was a guy who happened to be in town on leave. The pilot aspect really didn't figure into the sto

Cute, sexy and fun, this enjoyable read is perfect for when you need a light-hearted escape. Megan is funny and likeable, with a few deep issues regarding her family and needing to continually prove how helpful and indispensable she is. While Ben is just adorable, shy and sexy and trying so hard to help without making things worse.

They’re great together and I loved how they handled their fake marriage – mostly by not handling it and enjoying living together too much to stop. There really isn’t m

This book is filled with so much fun it had me chuckling all the way through. You've got a drunken forgotten Vegas wedding - maybe, the craziest of crazy families, and the normally very reserved fight pilot plunked right in the middle of all the chaos. These characters will grab your heart immediately especially Ben. He finds himself in some hilarious situation but he just keeps plugging along taking it all in stride. If your looking for a fun, lighthearted, but oh so sexy relaxing read you foun ...more

5 fighter jet stars.

I'm a sucker for flyboys. This story is so cute. It was funny. Ben and Meg have the best banters.

Ben is actually a breath of fresh air from all the alpha heroes protrayed in so many books these days.

And do-it-all Meg is adorable and at times exasperating because NO is not part of her vocabulary.

I enjoyed this book because it's sweet and not at all angsty. I've been drowning in angst lately so this book is very much welcome addition to my GR.

This is a wonderful book that made me smile....from the drunken wedding to the literal family circus, this novel was a delight to read. The author made me fall in love with the characters and care about their story - from Ben, the shy fighter pilot, to Megan, the "coordinator" of the circus, they were wonderful.

If you enjoy the genre, you will love this book. Put this one at the top of your TBR list. The author is on my must read authors' list.

I loved every last page of this book it is a laugh out loud really sweet and cute read and I would recommend it to all but if you don't want your family to think you have lost the plot maybe find a quiet nook to read it in. Once I started reading this I just could not put it down such a great read with wonderful characters I would recommend it to all. ...more

Teri’s my friend and I always buy her books. But she’s not the reason I read them. If you love contemporary romance, you’ll love hers. I’m not a fan of the genre and I enjoy them a lot. Lots of romance with some funny parts.

Megan Shuttlekrump is a devoted family member and would do anything for those she loves. It's why she doesn't have time for a relationship. However, when the gorgeous Ben Rutledge enters her life, she realizes her life will never be the same, especially when she discovers they're married. Will Megan give Ben a chance or will she walk away from her shot at happy ever after because she'll never be able to give Ben the time and attention he needs as her husband?

Accidentally in Love with the Pilot looks like a cute & fluffy, sounds like one as well.
And it does deliver exactly what the package says. Light-hearted cute & fluffy.
It's basically a what you see is what you get.

So on those bases, I got exactly what I was feeling for.

It is completely predictable. I mean completely and utterly. No surprises at all. Even the grand gesture. But I didn't care. Because it was sweet, funny fluff. It made me feel all sweet and fuzzy. Which is frankly why I read these

This isn’t the first book that has set its stall out on the waking up in Vegas married trope and it certainly won’t be the last but is it one of the best?
Well, I would say that it is certainly in the top half of the ones I’ve read anyway, the author put her own stamp on the whole scenario and for that I was grateful.
Pilot, Ben is on leave from his career with the Navy and for the most part is looking forward to spending some time with his friend, camping and cutting loose, getting back to nature

This book has on-page sex and some swearing including a handful of f-bombs (less than a dozen in the whole book). If those things are going to cause you to leave a bad review, you should skip this one.

There's no denying that the trope of “woke up married in Vegas” has been done a lot of times in the romance genre, and I admit that it isn't really my favorite plot, but Ms. Stanley did such an excellent job with the relationship between Ben and Megan that it didn't feel like the same-old-same-old

Ben Rutledge is an extremely shy, fighter pilot on leave for a month. He is suppose to be hanging with his best friend Trevor in Las Vegas but since he walked in on Trevor and his on-again/off-again girlfriend, Amber, in a very on-again way, Ben was at a loss. Amber asked him if he would do her a favor and drop off the birthday cake she made, which he qu

I really loved reading Accidentally in Love with the Pilot by Teri Anne Stanley. This is a story of what happens when you wake up in bed with a man you met the night before and a wedding ring on your hand. It’s definitely a reminder that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, or does it? While on leave, quiet, shy, reserved, and hot fighter pilot Ben was only helping out a friend when he agreed to deliver a cake to a birthday party, never expecting the Unicorn cake to be a for a sexy woman.

A fun quick read. The book starts out with Meghan celebrating her birthday with her “crazy/needy” family in a casino which then leads to her meeting Ben who attempts to deliver her birthday cake. Megan and Ben are then left to themselves, where one thing leads to another and the next thing they know they are waking up in bed together with rings on their fingers. From then on they attempt to find the chapel they got married at in order to end their “marriage.” I did feel like this book was a bit ...more

This was a good read. The writing flowed well, and I liked the characters for the most part. Meg was a little to much of a doormat for my tastes. She let her family walk all over her, and she never stood up for herself. I understand that it came from a place of feeling unworthy, but come on. If grown adults can't get their own dry cleaning, something is wrong. They should have never put everything on her that they did. I kept waiting for Meg to tell them to get their own stuff, but it never happ ...more

"Best not to get too attached to strange men who come bearing flaming unicorns."

There's nothing like a rainbow disaster of a flaming unicorn cake to strike up a conversation. And that's exactly how Navy pilot, Captain Ben Rutledge meets Vegas show manager for her family's act, The Waltzing Wallaces, Megan Shuttlekrump when he drops her birthday cake on the floor. Quiet, solitary and reserved meets center-of-everything-twenty-four-seven-do-it-all-wonder-woman of chaos. When Ben and Meg wake up w

I received an advanced copy of this book from NEtGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Accidentally in Love With the Pilot was just what I needed at the time. Light and sweet, Stanley wrote an incredibly cute story with what might be considered an overused trope, but still managed to keep a smile on my face throughout the entire book. I really enjoyed reading about Megan and Ben, and loved the steady pacing of the book. Admittedly, I was not a huge fan of our heroine, Megan, but loved the hero
This is a story of one night of drinking leading two people to waking up hungover and married. Ben is a straight laced Navy pilot. Nothing means more. However when his plans for leave end up with him delivering a birthday cake things wont be the same.

Megan is used to chaos with her family. Meeting Mr. Right is never easy. They all leave especially after meeting her circus of a family. But there is something about Ben. When the two decide to work together to piece together the night they will be
