After taking a Sky Romance flight to Las Vegas, socialite Jessie Ellis learns the hard way that what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas. Choices have consequences, and not making the hard choices could have life-long consequences. Just days away from being swept down a predetermined path, not by her choice but because it was easy and expected, Jessie makes the hard decision to choose her own future and fight for the love and happiness she deserves. As her predetermined and passive existence crumbles around her, will she find her dream of a joyful and fulfilling happiness and a passionate and forever love?
Asher Jenkins is in desperate need of some decompression time. Trying to make partner at his law firm has left him drained and as best man for his best friend’s wedding, what better place for a bachelor party than Las Vegas?
A chance meeting for Jessie and Asher turns into a mind-blowing one-night stand. Saying goodbye, they assumed they would never see one another again, but fate has a way of helping them to realize that their futures are entwined. Will they continue to fight it? Or accept that their destiny is to be together? Will Asher be able to capture Jessie’s shielded heart?
Jessie realizes, while in Las Vegas for her bachelorette party, that she can’t go through with her wedding when she has a one-night stand with a complete stranger. Thinking she will never see him again, she is horrified to run into him at the grocery store and realize they live in the same city. Misunderstandings and wrong assumptions lead them to each other once more and what had happened in Vegas between them certainly doesn’t stay there. And it’s just as well or there would be no story. 😉 One of the reasons I selected Las Vegas as the location for the beginning of this book was because, as I have visited there, it is a city that is wonderful for a few days, but not necessarily a place I would want to live. Now, I know that millions of people are very happy there, but as I’ve talked with a few of them, they stay far away from the Strip. The lights, the food, the slot machines, and the millions of people are fun for a while – a great place for an escape – but eventually we have to come back to real life. At least that’s how I’ve felt whenever I’m there. As in Jessie’s case, she goes for a party but comes home to live her life and deal with the consequences of her actions.
