ONLY IN VEGAS by Lindsey Brookes plus GIVEAWAY!

Available now at

From the Publisher:

“Being Italian and being sexy is supposed to go hand in hand, but somewhere along the line twenty-six-year-old Angelina Rossi’s genes forgot their Italian love goddess heritage. And now everyone at her work knows what a failure she is as a woman thanks to her ex-boyfriend and co-worker at Sunset Travel who has given Angie the nickname of ‘Ice Princess’, claiming no man will ever thaw her.

Thirty-year-old business executive Trey Landers isn’t surprised by much his best friend and neighbor, Angelina Rossi, throws his way. But this time she throws him one hell of a curve ball. She not only wants him to accompany her on a business trip to Las Vegas, pretending to be her lover in front of her ex-boyfriend, she wants Trey to give her pointers on what it takes to seduce a man.

A man of his word, Trey’s fevered kisses in front of her ex has the ass regretting his decision to break up with Angie. Not that she’d ever consider going back to Rick. Especially after discovering true passion in Trey’s arms. With that passion comes the realization they’re no longer pretending as the lines of their longstanding friendship and newfound love begin to blur. If only what happened didn’t have to stay in Vegas.”

My recording experience:

To me, this book is a great example of a straight up contemporary romance.  No vampires, no urban grit, not even really a workplace romance, its simply about two people falling in love, with a few bumps and obstacles along the way.  I think Brookes combines well trope #1, guy pretending to be the date and – oops! he finds he really wants to be the date with trope #2, two childhood friends who at first have weirdness because they grew up together.  I also liked that these two characters are good friends who wend their way to great chemistry.  Lots to love!

Listen to a sample here:
