IT HAPPENED IN VEGAS.
I can't be held responsible. Things that happen there are supposed to stay there, right? Right? Yeeeah. Not so much.Andie's just days away from tying the knot, but there's just ooooone little glitch. Apparently, she's already married. Or someone with her name is married to a guy out in Oregon of all places, and the courthouse won't issue her a marriage license until it's all cleared up. Tripping her way through cow pies and country songs to meet up with a man who gets around places on horseback is her very last idea of how to have a good time, but if she's going to get married, make partner at the firm, and have two point five kids before she's thirty-five, she needs to get to the bottom of this snafu and fix it quick ... before her fiance finds out and everything she's been working toward goes up in flames.

Clearly, my idea of humor differs from a lot of people because I didn’t chuckle once while listening to this audiobook. There are many things I disliked about this book but Andi and her missing backbone tops the list. I’m sorry but this one didn’t entertain me at all.

Andrea “Andi” Marks was this young ambitious attorney who had a life goal of making partner, getting married and having a couple of kids by her early 30’s. She doesn’t have any fun, just work, work, and more work.
When she goes to Vegas with friends for a bachelorette party, she goes buck wild on the drinks. This is where hunky cowboy Gavin MacKenzie, enters the picture.

Gavin was in Las Vegas for his brother’s bachelor party when he saw Andi and they did what you do in Vegas.

2 years later when spineless Andi is getting ready to marry her rude fiancée Bradley, the county clerk refused her a marriage certificate as She is Already Married…in Vegas.
*Gasp* I mean…I am so surprised. Why, I declare! I’ve never read such a thing before. What a novel plot twist.

So Spineless Andi, who do you want country bumpkin Mack or ambitious yet treats you like crap fiancée Bradley? Really hard choices for you, right?
