When you marry your sister’s ex in Vegas, you’re in for a messy trip home…

When marketing exec Brooklyn Hayes wakes up in Vegas after a corporate team-building trip, she’s expecting the hangover. The ring on her finger, not so much. And nothing could have prepared her for the sight of her best friend—her sister’s ex—right there beside her. She has no idea how this happened, but the one thing she knows for sure is that no one from their nosy, close-knit hometown of Rose Bend can find out!

Graphic designer Patrick King is used to keeping secrets—starting with his crush on his ex’s sister. Since he doesn’t remember much about how they ended up married or the night they apparently spent together, it shouldn’t be hard for him to keep their elopement a secret too.

But the more time they spend together trying to figure out what to do, all while keeping their secret from the whole town, the more uncertain they become about ending their marriage. While their impromptu nuptials might’ve been a mistake, the growing love between them doesn’t feel like a mix-up. They’ll need a miracle to make it through without slipping up…or falling.


This one hit ALL the right spots! It’s always fun to dip back into Naima Simone’s Rose Bend world and this quick novella is sure to delight fans of the town and the author. It’s got a mix of forbidden love, friends to lovers and boss/employee tropes in there for you and just a general all around sexy, fun vibe. I adored Patrick and was happy to see Brooklyn get a happily ever after that she so deserved. Well developed characters, strife galore and a really nice feel considering it all had to happen in a novella length story. Loved every minute!
