"Hitched is a deliciously fun romp in the sheets with a swoon-worthy man.† If you're looking for a sexy read, look no further." †- Courtney Cole, NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author -

He called me "wife." This man standing naked in front of me. Tall. Dark. Sexy as sin... He's my husband?

Disjointed images from the night before, the night I can't entirely remember, float into my mind. Meeting him in the bar. Sharing tidbits of our lives. I own a company that plans bachelor parties. He's a pediatric heart surgeon. We both live in Las Vegas, but we come from very different worlds.

And then I remember that kiss. The way his lips brushed against mine, gentle at first, then harder, deeper, with more urgency. Sex in the elevator. Hot, forbidden, delicious.

I remember the way he made me feel. The way our bodies fit perfectly together. But I don't remember marrying him. And now, he won't let me go. Dr. Sexy who saves children for a living. He wants the summer to prove we are meant to be.

I can give him a summer. But can I give him a lifetime?

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas...or it changes your life forever.

As I sink into the luxurious heat, my body breathes a sigh of relief. The tension and stress from the last few days drains out of me, and I close my eyes and lean back, enjoying the music, the sips of wine, the calm.

But it doesn't take long for my mysterious future ex-husband to creep into my mind, undoing my reverie with memories of our torrid night together.

His hotel room had an extra large bath, one we used to full avail.

He undressed me slowly, his long fingers and strong hands caressing my body with each movement as I stood still, breathing deeply, taking in the moment. I stood naked before him while he was still fully clothed, and the disparity between us sent waves of erotic charge through me.

As I pull this memory up and view it like a movie in my mind, my hand dips under the soapy water and between my legs. I spread my labia and tease my clit, slipping a finger inside of me as I remember him doing the same that night.

His hand over my mound, finger exploring my wet center, my pussy aching for more of him. I could see his cock through his slacks, hard and demanding, and I wanted to free him from that constraint, but I also wanted to continue enjoying this moment as he worshiped me with his eyes and explored me with his body.

I rub at my clit, fingering myself as I use my other hand to tease my nipples. I want this to be him touching me, his fingers, his hands, his tongue and mouth. His cock. But I settle for the memories as I bring myself closer to climax. He knelt in front of me, his mouth positioned at my pussy as he flicked a tongue out and lightly licked my clit. My body shuddered, knees weak as he pushed his tongue deeper into me, fingers digging into my hips, holding me tightly against his mouth. My hands fell to the top of his head, to his thick dark hair as he pleasured me beyond reason. The bath filled with water as I came hard in his mouth. He finally let me undress him, just before lifting me up and placing me in the steaming bath. He got in beside me, then pulled me onto his lap, impaling me on his hard cock.

My wet pussy took him in greedily, eagerly, and our bodies rocked together in the water, his hands exploring my breasts, waist, hips, his fingers finding my sensitive, swollen clit and sending me over the edge again, quickly this time, as I came on his cock.

I'm nearly there, the memory of him inside me tipping the scale as I come to thoughts of him, alone in my bathtub. And I realize then that getting him out of my mind is not going to be as easy as signing a few papers.

I was so excited when I saw this book, everything about it appealed to me. It seemed like a fun and easy read about an impromptu wedding that leads to a real marriage and it was a new author for me to try out. I knew it was going to have a sort of fairytale feel to it after reading the blurb; an event planner has a drunken Vegas wedding to a pediatric heart surgeon and afterwards he's determined to not let her get away. The theme with her leaving behind her red shoe in the book was clearly a modern cinderella spin. Obviously, I knew this was going to be a far-fetched plot starting out, but the way it was presented was leaving me shaking my head over just how much. However, if you're just looking for a light read that's total escapism with a good amount of steam, this may be the book for you.

Katie meets Sebastian one night when she's blowing off some steam with her two friends at a bar in Vegas where she lives. She's building up her party planning business and working overtime trying to get a foot into the celebrity parties where she could really make a name for herself and achieve success. She grew up in a small town with small minded people and she and her brother always knew that they were destined for more. I loved the heroine's drive, ambition and independence. She wasn't looking for a man to swoop in and make her life perfect for her. I'm pretty picky about my heroines and I can't say that she really bothered me much except perhaps for the amount of time it took her to give the Hero a chance. She was determined to push him away and the guy was pretty much Prince Charming come to life, so she was kind of insane for taking so long to come to her senses. Her stubbornness almost cost her everything.

Yes, he was the most amazing sex I've ever had. And yes, he's an amazing catch in a sea of slimy serpents, but he's not for me. We're from two different worlds. It would never work."

When she and Sebastian meet, they have an instant attraction-if only she could remember more than bits and pieces of their wondrous night. Everything is a bit of a blur and that sizzling sex that she somewhat remembers? It wasn't the only spontaneous and reckless thing she did.

To her shock, she wakes up married to a stranger and the only thing she can think of is getting an annulment as quickly as possible. Her new husband seems to be taking the whole thing in stride however. He's not quite as distressed as she is....what he is is determined. Determined to change Kacie's mind and help her see how well they fit together. This is where the story lost me. I just couldn't suspend my disbelief that they met, had amazing sex, a life-altering talk "getting to know each other" and then proceeded to believe that they were in love with each other. In one night. I guess I was expecting them both to get to spend a lot of time together after the "I do's" before that happened but he basically "knew" immediately that she was meant for him and I wasn't feeling that.

I loved how devoted Sebastian was to convincing Kacie that they belonged together. He was very supportive of her needs and her career goals which gave me hope that they could make a future for themselves work. Not only that, but he grew up in a home where his mother was the big money earner so he already sees marriage equality between a husband and wife as a positive thing. His parents are still together and as happy as ever. Kacie's main hesitation in pursuing their relationship is the fact that she's scared that her goals and independence will be pushed to the side once the "I do's" become real. Once she sees things clearly, she pulls out all the stops in showing her love. I really enjoyed the ending-the heroine did some much needed groveling and used a sweet and romantic gesture to show Sebastian how she felt about him. Overall, I liked the basis of the plot, but personally, I would have liked to see a stronger foundation in their feelings for each other. Regardless, it was still a fun read and it had some enjoyable humor. When you're in the mood for something light, pick this one up, it might fit the bill.
