Problem is everything went down hill from there. Things kind of were all over the place. She didn't want anything to do with him, even after he explained everything to her, then out of no where she goes with him but acts like she doesn't want to, but then the very next sentence she wants to hold his hand, or touch him or kiss him. This went on a lot. Sadly, I could actually just keep going on and on especially with things that happened in the second part of the book.
I hate writing bad reviews. I know somewhere out there, there is an author who put their heart into writing a book and then I hate to be the one to run it down. I just think the book needed some editing. Mar 31, sha'kia rated it it was amazing. Great short read Vegas where any thing can happen as long as it stays in Vegas,was not the case for phoebe.

Apr 06, EbonyMonae rated it it was ok Shelves: This book was so annoying.
The author had a good concept but she did not develop her characters or the story at all. I don't have not vision of what her characters look like. Why was Xavier so against falling in love? One minute they were together then the next she was like I want a divorce.
She actually had a good man that was trying to give her the world and she did not want that. Phoebe really pissed me off throughout the whole book. Xavier made me mad as well. I would not be giving you a mil This book was so annoying. I would not be giving you a million dollars to find yourself. Find out what you want then you come find me.
Apr 03, Anino rated it it was ok Shelves: Regarding this book, it was OK, but it wasn't spectacular. I could see where the author was trying to go with this, but in my opinion, she should have used a beta reading group, along with a good editor, before she released this book. It's not to say that this book was craptastic, but it could have been better. View all 3 comments. Mar 24, BooksandBeyondFiftyShades rated it it was amazing. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas right??
With no recollection of the previous night she comes to the conclusion she must have had a one night stand with a stripper, who else would have such an awesome body right?

Forced by her family to locate Xavier to divorce him, Phoebe soon finds herself thrust into life at Xavier's farm and meeting his family. After some misunderstanding and time apart Phoebe finally realizes she has feelings for him despite all their turmoil.
So what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas?? Another fantastic book by a brilliant author. I loved Xavier from the start of this book he never stopped fighting for Phoebe and he goes that he will never leave her. Even though he did, he apologizes for it. I loved the way that he gives her their date again to try and kick start to her memories of him.
It was brilliant the way that even though it hurt him he gave her space to decide for herself if she loved him or not. I laughed at several points if this book especially the parts with Phoebe in it I really enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it to others. Mar 28, KiaBoO rated it it was amazing. Sometimes you just know I usually don't like novellas, because I always feel like they should be longer when I get to the end, but this one gave me a full story that I thoroughly enjoyed. The saying goes what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, but sometimes you have to break the rules, especially when it involves a marriage.
In this story you meet Xavier and Phoebe, who shows you that sometimes you don't need years to know you're in love with someone.
When you know you just know. Take the journey Sometimes you just know I usually don't like novellas, because I always feel like they should be longer when I get to the end, but this one gave me a full story that I thoroughly enjoyed. Take the journey with them as they get to know one another to see if this is something that should continue, or was it all just one big mistake.
This book begs the question, is there a such thing as fate? Do soul mates really exist? Is there a such thing as love at first sight? Read this great romance novella, and you be the judge. Dec 30, Richelle Robinson rated it liked it. She has no recollection of their marriage and wakes up confused.
The story started out cute but Phoebe got on my nerves. She was so up and down, wishy washy and it was super annoying. Either you want to stay married or you don't! It's really very simple. Xavier wasn't as bad as her and he more or less made the story for me. This was my first time reading anything by this author and it was a cute read. If you like insta love stories this 3. If you like insta love stories this will be perfect for you. The narrator did a good job on this story as well! I can say that the concept is nice.
The execution was good. Phoebe got on my last nerves.

I guess that means it was good writing if it could pull that much irritation out of me. Phoebe gets married in vegas and after that she behaves selfishly and childlike. Xavier is pretty cool. He's pretty innocent and hard working. Phoebe, the way she behaves made my head hurt. I almost stopped reading, but the concept kept me reading, along with Xavier. For some reason we never find out what happened with M I can say that the concept is nice.
For some reason we never find out what happened with Mrs. Mar 28, Tiffany rated it it was ok. Her hot and cold attitude toward him and his tantrums as a result of them annoyed me to no end. This book was, at once, rushed and laggy, disjointed and cookie cutter neat. Just too much up and down and not enough character development. Maybe this is a part of a bigger series that more adequately explains all these sort of polar personality changes, idk. The concept is a cute romantic one, I just don't think it was fully developed. Apr 07, Zandra rated it did not like it Shelves: This is a complete DNF.
This story is so disjointed that I fear the heroine is not mentally stable. She is just so hot and cold that it doesn't make sense. Also, why is everyone hooting and commenting on them being a couple? Are they that "really, really, really ridiculously good looking? Also, I'm not sure what she was going for with the male lead, but he's a total creeper. Apr 21, Rikenya Hunter rated it it was amazing. I enjoyed this read, it was great!

Also, I'm not sure what she was going for with the male lead, but he's a total creeper.
Phoebe got on my nerves at times because she was so flip-floppy with Xavier, but that's what made it enjoyable because I couldn't predict what would happen next and that I love!

Then four months turns into a year all on one page!!
Feb 03, Rena rated it liked it. Okay read For her to be a grown woman, Phoebe was very childish and her tantrums were uncalled for. She rather run away instead of communicating and listening. I really was not liking her. Xavier was a good man and put up with a lot from Phoebe.
Regardless, his heart wanted who it wanted. I wanted to see or read the development of the love or chemistry between them, but I really feel the connection. Some things didn't make sense to me like the birthday debacle. How did the family know to show up Okay read For her to be a grown woman, Phoebe was very childish and her tantrums were uncalled for. How did the family know to show up there if Phoebe and Xavier wasn't speaking? But I guess, some things are not meant to be answered.
Overall, it was okay read. Apr 30, ILoveToRead rated it liked it. Very sweet and romantic. Not your typical IR book. Loved the way the story played out with the heroine getting to know the hero, while on the journey to rediscovering that she had fallen in love with him. Couldn't have done without the unrealistic duration of the trip she took whole trying to figure out what she wanted. Sep 26, genille taylor rated it did not like it. Still trying to figure out When we were corresponding back and forth about their shoot, we chatted about their lives, what they love to do and how they would like us to portray their session.
Their gorgeous home, so full of character, is their sanctuary. Their loving space, where they enjoy each other, good friends and good company, along with their love of cooking and entertaining. It felt like the love was literally oozing from every corner. It was warm, relaxed and cozy. During their shoot we were chatting about how they met and what starting the lives together has meant since recently sharing the news of their engagement and also their move into their new home.
We knew we were in for a treat with these two beautiful humans and they certainly did not disappoint. We are so happy to be able to share their story with you all. Our beyond cheesy joke is that we won the jackpot finding each other. Ragnar is Swedish and at the time, was living in Sweden, but had come to visit with friends.
