Kari's 4 Rocking Stars Review of Vegas Love by Jillian Dodd


Hollywood actress, Ashlyn Roberts, just had the worst week of her life. Her ex released a sex tape of them and just when she was convinced her current boyfriend was a keeper for standing by her side, he breaks up with her at a friend’s wedding. She’s planning to drown her sorrows in booze when she meets a sexy stranger as she’s leaving the wedding and they end up in Vegas, married. 

Cash Crawford is offered a dream job working with his brother as a junior talent agent. He’ll put his shiny new law degree to good use and make a bunch of money in the process. His first task is simple: Keep Ashlyn Roberts out of trouble and don’t sleep with her. Which might be kind of tough, since they definitely consummated their Vegas wedding. 

Will this one night stand end in the quickie divorce they promised each other? Or will they realize they got lucky in love? 

What Rocked:
I absolutely adore books that are “marriage before love.” Ashlyn was a Hollywood starlet, doing and trusting all the wrong things and people. She was beautiful, saw the good in everyone around her, but not perfect and that is what makes her relatable. I love her attitude about living life exactly how she wants without apology. It didn’t matter that her wild rides were caught by the rag mags, or even that she had a crappy childhood. 

Cash Crawford realized that the girl he was with, was not THE ONE. He decides to finally take his brother up on a job offer and move back to California. He is now working for his brother, Carter (who is Ashlyn’s agent) as a junior agent instead of as a lawyer out of state. He is put in charge of keeping Ashlyn out of trouble and helping her get her life together. The night before he is supposed to start, he marries a woman who he finds crazy, sexy, and amazing. That woman is Ashlyn. I love his immediate gravitation to her. He is completely in. He spoils Ash and finds he may have found his forever.

What was Out of Tune:
The ending seemed a bit rushed. I didn’t really want it to end, so that may be why. In all honesty, I would have loved to see more about the healing Ashlyn and her mom go through. 

This was such a great, fast paced, sexy little read and I am so happy I took a chance on a new to me author.  We all want that type of love. And not just a Vegas Love. One that is complete and never breakable. Jillian Dodd is definitely an author I would revisit!
