Audiobook Review: Well Hung Over In Vegas by Kimberly Fox

About the Book 


What happens in Vegas doesn't always stay in Vegas. Especially when you wake up with a naked man in your bed and a ring on your finger.

Some people just can't handle Vegas. 

My friend warned me that Vegas can turn the most straight-laced girl into a party-crazed slut.
I didn't believe her. I've always been the straightest of the straight. 
Boy, was I wrong. 
I hate being wrong. 
My first morning in Vegas and I wake up in a hotel room with no memory of the night before.
Oh, and there's a naked stranger lying next to me who gives a new meaning to the word hung-over. 
Things go from bad to worse when I find a wedding ring wrapped around my finger. 
Then things escalate from worse to catastrophic when I find out that the infuriating man who gave it to me is my new boss. 
When I find out he wants to stay married--all bets are off. 
My friend warned me that some people can't handle Vegas. 
I should have listened. 
Because I am definitely one of those people.

My Thoughts 

Thanks to a lackadaisical bartender, Tyler and Dahlia have a wild night in Las Vegas that includes them getting married. Unfortunately neither of them can recall anything. And it gets even more awkward the following day when they discover that Tyler is Dahlia’s new boss. 

This is definitely not a book where the hero holds the power and lauds it over the heroine. Not at all. Dahlia is smart, spunky and determined to carve out a career for herself. She gives as good as she gets, and Tyler’s attempts to control her never work out quite like he imagined. 

Add in two quirky sets of parents (his, who hanker after grandchildren, and hers, the epitome of everything hippy) plus the evil cousin out to ruin them and you’ve got a wonderfully entertaining read. 

And even though our couple never really knows *everything* that happens on “The Night”, we readers do thanks to the points of view of several characters they encounter along the way. I admire Tyler and Dahlia’s attitude with each discovery they do make because I think I would have been mortified! 

This was such a fun book to listen to. It is narrated by Cassandra Myles and Nelson Hobbs who do an excellent job of conveying all emotions. They do a great job with their comedic timing and it was a pleasure to listen to. 

I do wish the cover for this book was different. It does nothing to convey what a fun book this is and is easily lost amongst the sea of shirtless men on romance book covers today.
