Book Description

Cocktail waitress Sophie Dalton doesn't exactly have a life plan. She's perfectly happy being everyones favorite party girl. But when a Las Vegas bachelorette party goes awry and an uptight businessman mistakes Sophie for a prostitute . . . well, Sophie wonders if it's time to reevaluate her priorities. Swearing off her thigh-high boots for good, Sophie slinks back home with damaged pride-and a jackpot of a hangover.

Yet what happens in Vegas doesn't always stay there. On a trip to Seattle to open a new office, Grayson Wyatt meets his latest employee-who turns out to be the same woman he recently called a hooker. Wealthy and gorgeous, Gray is a man used to getting what he wants. And it doesn't take long to figure out that smart, sassy, sexy Sophie is everything he's been looking for. As their late nights at the office turn into hot morning-afters, they realize their Vegas misunderstanding may lead to the real thing . . .


I received an eARC copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. Here is my honest review.

I read quite a bit of romance and enjoy most of them (they are usually 4 stars) but this book earned 5 stars from me. It is excellent!

There's an inspirational saying associated with Cinderella: one pair of shoes can change your life (or something like that. The book opens with Sophie deciding which pair of shoes to wear out for a night in Vegas. Upon meeting a handsome man in an elevator, it seemed that events would be pretty predictable for the rest of the story. Well.....

....only the happily ever after part. 

Layne did a great job developing Sophie and Gray and their story unfolded at a great pace. Sophie's snappy dialogue brought grins and Gray was so awkwardly reserved that you couldn't help but like him. Definitely a step away from the typical leading man who is suave and distant. 

Again, great story - I received a copy from NetGalley but consider this a book worth owning in my permanent collection. I can't wait to read Max and Brynn's story in the second book as well as checking out other works by Layne.

I gave this book: 

★ = I did not like it     ★ = It was okay     ★ = I liked it    
★ = I really liked it     ★ = I loved it
