This was a feel good, cute romance that had a ton of steam. I have been enjoying this Country Love Collection where the author takes a Country Song and turns it into a book, this one is loosely based on Last Name by Carrie Underwood.

If you read the blurb for the story you know Carrie was on a Scavenger Hunt with her friends and oh the fun things they had to do, it was great, I think I am going to make a list and have a ball the next time I'm in Vegas, only I wont be waking up married to someone

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 STARS

I loved Carrie and James' beginning! Their Vegas story is a memorable one and definitely did not stay in Vegas. If you are looking for a sweet and romantic story, this one is truly entertaining. Last Name by Dr. Rebecca Sharp is a MUST read and will join the ranks of the BIBLIO-ELITE!!!

Thoroughly enjoyed this sweet, sexy romance by a new-to-me author.

"Heart hammering, blood pounding, my hands itching to touch...to memorize a man I'd only just met."

Carrie Bishop is in Vegas for the weekend to let her hair down before facing redundancy at work on Monday. When a handsome stranger saves her dignity and helps her complete a scavenger hunt - one that ends in a fake marriage at a wedding chapel. One incredible night later and she wakes up alone to the realisation that there was noth

Another 5 Star ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ masterpiece from Dr. Rebecca Sharp!! ‘Last Name’ started off fun and existing, and continued on that path throughout the entire story.

Carrie and James meet by chance in Las Vegas and have an immediate spark; an undeniable connection. Carrie was in Las Vegas for a ‘girls weekend’, and was supposed to be completing a scavenger hunt, when she got separated from the girl pack. James offers to help her finish the tasks on her list, with the last being a picture together dr

Last Name by Rebecca Sharp is, by far, one of the best books I've read this summer.

It's so easy to fall in love with Rebecca's storytelling till the point where you keep coming back for more. With Last Name, you'll be tranfixed to a world full of emotions, funny moments, unexpected situations and the perfect HEA.

Last Name is the latest book to be released by Dr. Rebecca Sharp and what a cute, romantic story.

What happens in Vegas...is a HEA

I've said it before...I love stories where something happens in Vegas. This one was no exception.

This is the first book I've read from Rebecca. I am definitely going to read more. I loved Carrie and James and their journey to HEA.

In Vegas for a girls' weekend with her co-workers, Carrie finds herself seperated from them and she meets James who proceeds to help her check off her scavenger hunt list and a little more!

Once she is saved her and James spend time together doing a scavenger hunt through Vegas and James being the ultimate gentleman and attracted to Carrie decides to help her, but they e ...more

Last Name by Dr. Rebecca Sharp is a light, flirty, sweetheart story. This is Carrie and James's story.
Theirs is a story about two strangers who meet up by accident in Las Vegas. Really, it was a beautiful story about two people who were meant for one another and this is their love story. I don’t want to spoil anything with giving any spoilers away but "What Happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" doesn't always stay true.

Sharp knocks it out of the park with this funny, sexy romcom. I love how she took one song, picked out the best parts and rearranged them into this amazing story.
I was hooked from the very first page.
The chemistry that Carrie (😉😉) and James have is so explosive! 🔥 Last Name will have you laughing, blushing and your jaw dropping. It’s such an easy, feel good romance. It’ll leave you wanting your own kind of scavenger hunt now.

Last Name brings sexy back. Sharp steps out of the shadows and into the spotlight. James and Carrie bring on the humor while never skimping on the heart and packing more than a bit of heat in the process. Last Name is at the top of my re-read pile.


Patricia Rohrs (words we love by blog)
A super cute rom com that has one of the most stubborn hero’s because he wants his girl and no is not in his vocabulary!

Carrie and James had one amazing night together but fate had Other plans and Carrie needed to be ready because James was coming for her heart and soul!

I absolutely love these short, beautiful stories that make you laugh, cry and fills your heart with joy!

A sweet romance that will whisk you away for an enjoyable afternoon. I love Vegas and of course you can never predict what will happen there...as you can see by James and Carrie’s story. Their unconventional meeting makes for a great story that you won’t want to miss.

Last Name was my first book by Dr. Rebecca Sharp book. It was a fun, fluffy, cute romance. It’s a play on the Carrie Underwood song. I tend to enjoy married in Vegas books. This one was a hit. I always love a good hero obsessed with the heroine. This Dr. Rebecca Sharp book won’t be my last.


I voluntarily read an early copy.

3.5⭐️

I've received an ARC from the author before, and I've read some of her books as well...

I've read the blurb and it was definitely enticing... Then I got curious on what happens to Carrie and James next.

The storyline isn't something I haven't read before, but I enjoyed it.

As I was reading, I kept on thinking that this book would be awesome to watch as a Hallmark movie. It has everything... it was quirky, sexy and funny.

It's a feel-good story to read after a stressful day!

Her friends keep moving on to the next part of the hunt and so she has to play catch up.

Not having read any other works by Rebecca Sharp before, I didn’t know what to expect before reading Last Name. Needless to say, this second chance accidental marriage story was hilarious and incredibly romantic.

What started out as a girls’ weekend in Vegas, turned out to be so much more for thirty-one-year old, Carrie Bishop. After relocating her whole life to move to Lake Tahoe from New Jersey, Carrie thought she was done with the unfor

If you take nothing else away from this review, let it be this - you can't go wrong with a novel by Dr Rebecca Sharp. Each story she develops is unique, perfectly detailed and has just the right amount of swoony steaminess to leave delightful goosebumps all over your skin. Last Name says it's a romantic comedy - and it's funny, don't get me wrong, but sometimes romantic comedies get a mediocre reputation, and trust me, there is nothing mediocre about it.

Dr Rebecca Sharp has just catapulted herself straight into one click territory. From the very first page, I was hooked by Carrie and James’ romance. This is a story of overcoming past mistakes, learning to trust again and taking the leap of faith to follow your heart, and she absolutely nailed it! A beautiful story with engaging characters, a swoony alpha hero and a curvy, insecure heroine you can’t help but root for to get her happily ever after.

This is another great book by this author and I continually laugh my way through her books!

I really liked Carrie and I loved that she moved clear across the country to begin her life again after catching her ex cheating on her. I liked that she was really trying to experience Vegas and I loved the idea of a scavenger hunt and I definitely think I need to do one next time I go down there.

James was a wonderful character and I loved the way he took Carrie under his wing and showed her all the sight

Last Name by Dr Rebecca Sharp is a cute story of two people who embark on a scavenger hunt and get more than they bargained for. What if you wake up and find a ring on your finger and a marriage certificate. To make matters worse you can't remember the night's event, your groom is gone and you don't know where to find him. Carrie went to Las Vegas on a last hoorah trip with her coworkers who all were going to be fired on Monday. James is in Vegas for a bachelor party when he rescues a sexy lady ...more
