SALE $.99 ➜

A cute story that starts out with an invitation to Andie's best friend's bachelorette party.
'Yo, Party Girl! We. Need. You. Be at the airport tomorrow ...Don't let us down. And remember, you have permission to have fun and forget about your bullsh*t boyfriend PUKE because what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.'

A friendly piece of advice from the ticket guy~
"Just be careful. They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but sometimes the trouble follows you home."

Our career driven heroine learns that the ticket guys words rang true. Two years later while applying for her marriage license she finds out that her life plan may not happen. Boarding a plane to Burns, Oregon she's determined to get her life plan of marrying another lawyer and having two children back on track.

Mack is one hot cowboy who works on his family's ranch. His family's motto is Luceo non uro. Which in layman terms means Shine not burn.
"To me, though, it means that I have a choice. I need to balance the bad with the good, make sure to avoid the things that could burn or scar me but get close enough to the heart that I feel life and really experience it."

Shine Not Burn is a Standalone.

Jen Nice review, Amy! The Oregon location's a draw ;) but Andie seems a little on the brittle, harsh, etc side after reading the sample.

Amy | Foxy Blogs Thanks, Jen! Those "Oregon" books suck me in. Like most heroines...she act likes a silly girl trying to be an independent woman. *shrugs*
