Jacob Conner is never getting married.

Not now, not “someday,” and certainly not when he’s black-out drunk at his sister’s wedding in Las Vegas. The whole “waking up in an unfamiliar hotel room with a ring on his finger” thing was probably just a coincidence. Definitely.

He doesn’t have much time to dwell on it anyway, as Aaron Craig, his boss, assigns him to be the glorifie

This turned out to be a little too cliché for me. But I loved the drama and all the chaos involved.

This one reminds me of classic Mills & Boons romances. With a bit of Cinderella vibes from the very beginning.

The writing is smooth. The characters have a strong presence. The plot is entertaining. If you love enemies-to-lovers romance and want to have a good time reading some hardcore romance, go for this one. The second half has it all.

Thanks to the Publisher and the author for the advance readi

I loved the idea of this and couldn’t wait to start reading. And it started well but...

For me it didn’t live up to its potential. Honestly when I got into the book and more importantly the characters I didn’t like that it was a love triangle featuring two brothers. It was also too long with not enough story to keep it going. I found myself skimming a bit towards the middle. I felt for most of the book it could have gone either way. That’s not how I like my romances. I like a spark, real attracti

Tension, passionate looks and of the charts chemistry. This author will have me looking for her books in the future.

An angsts filled love triangle ensues when two brothers fall for the same man.
Love is definitely in the air for them but so is responsibility and the future of the family business. All are at stake .
Who will Jake chose when he has to make that painful decision?

Very enjoyable and satisfying read.

A nice gay love story. I definitely would not call this full on rom-com but it had many of the elements. Many LOL moments and awkwardness. Good characterization, even the secondary characters. Liked this more than I thought I would and the ending was not predictable. Easy to read in a few sittings.

Recommended.

Thanks to Netgalley, Anni Lee and Nine Star Press for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Jacob Conner is a 26 y/o out gay desk clerk for the Craig Hotel in San Francisco. He begins the morning after his sister's wedding at the Craig Las Vegas waking with a sterling hangover and a platinum band on his left ring finger. And a person asleep in the bed beside him. Regretting the many, many tequila shots he'd taken the night before he silently dresses, departs the room and heads for the airport to (hopefully) return to his normal life without the interruption of a possible spouse. He can ...more

Love triangle stories are always tricky - almost always someone ends up really really hurt and relationships are permanently injured. Jake wakes up in Vegas after his sister's wedding in a strange hotel room - with a ring on his left hand. He heads back to San Francisco without talking to the person he wakes up with. When he gets back home - his boss Aaron asks him to play chaperone/tour guide/keeper of his brother, Trevor, for the week while he is in town for the hotel company's annual sharehol ...more

This book was not what I thought it would be-- I expected more of a madcap, zany romantic comedy, and while the premise is there, the framework of this story is much darker and more nuanced than that. Jacob (Jake) wakes up with a wedding ring, a hangover, and someone underneath a pile of blankets in a hotel room, sneaking out before he can see who, exactly, he’s pledged himself to. He returns to work at a Craig hotel to find himself besieged by the attentions of both Aaron and Trevor Craig, his ...more

Well this book was not what I was expecting. For those curious from the cover, this is a love triangle romance and not a menage. I’m a bit torn on the book as whole. The author took risks with varying degree of success. I enjoyed having the different POVs go back and show previous scenes from their perspective instead of just continuing the story. I through it was an odd choice to have the POVs be all three men in the love triangle and not just the two who end up together. On the one hand it did ...more

Jacob Conner attends his sister’s wedding and wakes up in Vegas with a hangover, someone sleeping beside him, and a ring on his finger! Without stopping to find out who it was, he hurries out of there.

Returning to his job in San Francisco, Jacob’s boss, Aaron Craig, assigns him the task of babysitting his older brother for the week while he is there for the hotel company's annual shareholders meeting. Apparently Trevor Craig gets into all kinds of mischief if he’s not carefully chaperoned. Betw

When Jake wakes up after a drunk night at his sister's wedding, he finds a ring on his finger and a body in bed beside him. WHAT!? Jake never planned on getting married, so he sneaks out without even knowing who he's in bed with. Soon after, he finds himself playing chaperone for his boss's half-brother...his very attractive (if obnoxious) half-brother. Then, he discovers - shock - his boss has feelings for him, too. The two men are completely different. What is Jake to do, whom to choose? And w ...more

This was so sweet and SO unexpected! In the best way of course!

This is my first time reading the love triangle trope, believe it or not, which is genuinely shocking to me. But as a first timer on this subject, I enjoyed this! That's mainly because of the characters since Jake is the cutest and the poor guy is stuck in the middle of this mess! But it all works itself out in the end which I was super happy to see.

I know that this is Anni Lee's debut book and I'm proud to have read it! What a great

This book keeps you guessing until the very end. The Craig brothers, Trevor and Aaron, were raised by a very dysfunctional father and were pitted against each other to succeed in the family business. Trevor is the oldest and a jokester. He finds it hilarious that his straight lace brother has found himself in a situation with an employee. As he continues to provoke Aaron, Jake is caught in the middle.The author did a great job with twists and turns to keep you guessing throughout the book which ...more

Jake wakes up married in Vegas but is too scared to find out who or if it is real. He gets to work, only to be stuck between two brothers, one of whom is his boss. He finds them each sexy and attractive even though their personalities are as opposite as can be. Turns out that both brothers find him sexy and attractive too and are both trying to get him. Interesting sub-plots, funny scenes and some unexpected twists make for a pretty good story with lots of chemistry between the guys and confusio ...more

I was expecting a funny not complicated story. Well it is more complex than I have expected with some angst. Well developed characters and relationships among them. Good reality and background of hotel business and influencing family and expectations. Lots of expectations. Still good read.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This was an interesting premise—waking up in Vegas to find yourself married, but sneaking off before you can find out who you are married to—but it just didn’t live up to the idea. Jacob was way too passive for most of the book. There is a scene early on that has a power imbalance and no discussion of consent, and made me very uncomfortable. No one makes good choices. At one point, someone faints and another character decides to take him to his hotel room instead of, I don’t know, calling an amb ...more

So this was kind of all over the place for me. It was a very quick read that involved a love triangle between brothers. There’s not much of a plot and it was hard to get invested with who Jake should end up with. All opinions are my own and thank you to netgalley for the ARC.

This story is a bit confusing, 3 main characters, some parts you read 3 times from different point of view, it does not indicate whether you are reading in the present or reading something that happened before. Still, it was fun to read, with a surprising ending.

A sweet, quick, and charming drunk married in Vegas tale. I'm not normally interested in the love triangle aspect of books, but this one ended up the way I hoped which was satisfying! I thought the POV switches were kinda clunky with how they covered events that just happened from the other character's perspectives though.
