Sometimes what happens in Vegas doesn't stay there.

Callyn Stott wakes up from a night-out at her friend Lara's Bachelorette party in Vegas with a hangover… and a wife. She's not really sure how she and her best friend Emma got hitched, only that they did and it's completely and totally legal. Callyn is used to getting in and out of scrapes, but this one takes the cake.

Had high hopes for this one.

Why? Because getting black out drunk and married in Vegas to a woman sounds like something I would have done a decade ago. Actually something like that did happen. I got black out drunk, had my first time with a woman and could only remember flashes of what happened the next day. Oh the joys of my mid 20's.

So, first off in order to enjoy this story you need to take it with a grain.. make that a bucket of salt because it's one convenient plot device after another. Why

I probably would have given a 5 star if I was 18 and just coming out and a partier and lover of Vegas and lover of dogs and 1/6th of a cornucopia of gay lady best friends who only hang out with each other. I am none of those things, so jaded me found the story rather cliched and somewhat immature, making it hard to connect with. But for a light and fun one? Sure! You want a quickie for the beach or a short plane ride that doesn't have much drama ? Go for it.

This is a single PoV with an interesting (lesbian) twist on the unintentional wedding trope mixed with a friends to lovers. I got about a third through before I lost interest. It's possible that Callyn isn't a manic-pixie-dream girl, but so far, there's no contraindicating evidence. And it increasingly looks like her friend Emma engineered the marriage and is all-in from the start. So the book exists because both are clueless uncommunicators and the entire relationship could be wrapped up in a ...more

It made me smile so it gets 5 stars!

A feel good love story with good characters, good sex, and a puppy - all my favorite things! Best friends grow up together, go to different colleges then come back together without missing a beat. On a girlfriend’s Bachelorette weekend in Los Vegas the two friends get blind drunk and find themselves married in the morning. One can’t understand how that happened, while the other is kind of quiet on the subject. Will true love win? Read it and find out!

This was so bad. Callyn was horrible and spent the entire book either being so self-unaware I wanted to hit her, or stringing Emma along so badly I wanted to shake her. Her narrative made her sound like a spoilt, annoying twelve-year-old. Callyn and Emma were completely one-dimensional. The entire book is tell-don’t-show and is just bad, bad writing. There is no plot whatsoever. There’s no tension or interest. The dialogue is clunky.

In case it’s not obvious, I did not enjoy this book.

I am but a simple gay woman. I see an oops-we-got-married-while-we-were-drunk-and-now-we-have-to-confess-we’ve-secretly-loves-each-other-forever les bean novel and I read that wonderful les bean novel and I fall in love with the characters.

What I’m saying is I love this book and I love Chelsea M. Cameron and there’s a good chance I would die for Emma and Callyn

Clichéd story line with potential but fell flat

First off it felt like the story line barely progressed, yes we got to a satisfactory end but even then the realization was anticlimactic. Callyn is still self depreciating it felt like she was more reliable on Emma even though it was obvious she loves her but it didn't feel like she understood even in the end it felt more dependable than head over heels love it just felt off from her part. The book needed something more for me and also needs

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review – thank you so much to Chelsea for sending this to me!

God bless Chelsea M. Cameron. That’s all I can possibly say, because their books are just so pure. Every time I pick up one of Chelsea’s books, I know what I’m getting – a light, fun, trope-filled read that always leaves me feeling awesome – and Didn’t Stay In Vegas delivers on all fronts.
The book follows Emma and Callyn, two best friends who wake up the morning

after a couple of days of struggling with the writing in this, i thought i would get used to it, but actually it just got more and more difficult to read.

i'm totally here for a convenient plotline or tropes with wlw stories, we deserve tropes too! but this main character was beyond frustrating to read about. she read like a 12 year old, not an adult, and her narration read like a dry diary entry, which also resulted in me not being able to feel any of what she was telling me.

so ..I know I have a bunch but, Chelsea M. Cameron is another go to writer for me..and AGAIN I was soo looking forward to this book. In short it was a bit of a letdown as it was not up to her usual standard and somewhat even seemed padded ..likem the puppy was worth a shitload of pages..ya cute dog but..anyway it was still better than some I have read of late and STILL she will be a goto for me...but a soft 3 stars

Cute but short

Loved the story. I wish it was longer, but it was a nice quick escape. My only criticism is that there were many times the back and forth dialogue was confusing because one characters quote was always paired with the other characters action. Overall, I highly recommend reading this book.

Fast and sweet.

I couldnt stop reading this. Its a super light and fluffy romance, but sometimes thats exactly what I need, and it captured that Millenial burnt out before you are thirty vibe without being pessimistic about life.

If you want sweet leads and just a happy jaunt about friends in love, this is a great read.

Fun Read

What happens when best friends since childhood attend a friends bachelorette party in Vegas?
The woman can't believe this happened or could one of them have planned it?
Do they divorce or do they find they both have really always loved each other a bit more than their low between them as best friends?
Buy the book and take the journey. I bet you can't put it down .

Sweet story

It was sweet, but I wish there was more. I feel like there could have been so much more at the end. It would also be great to see their relationship years from now, going by what was said at the end and what was being considered. I WANT MORE.

Recommends it for: the Young Adult lesfic crowd
I couldn't connect with either main character especially Callyn. She felt very immature. I would probably have loved this story when I was 16. I actually wish stories like this were around when I was 16. It was cute but not for me.

A Wonderfully Fun Read

Chelsea M. Cameron did an outstanding job in bringing two very different people together in this accidental marriage story.

The characters were very personable and stood out in their own unique ways.

Cute but frustrating! Ugh! I spent most of the book yelling at the characters to pull their heads out of their butts and admit their feelings! All in a all a super cute book that was a fun read. I'll be checking out other books by Chelsea Cameron in the future.
Cute, fluffy, sweet, basically no angst: as advertised.

Cute best-friends-from-forever and got-drunk-and-married-in-Vegas romance. Minimal amount of angst and a number of cute scenes. Secondary characters were a little thin. Overall a decent read.

This book was dumb but in a fun way. It was full of cliches and poor writing but it was a silly romance that was still enjoyable.

I love basically anything that Chelsea M. Cameron writes and this is just another in the list.
The friends-to-lovers theme is always a favorite of mine. I feel in love with one of the main characters Emma, she is just so lovable and cute.

And there's a puppy what more could you want!
