Sherry Robicheaux loves men. She loves love. And she loves an adventure. So when she meets a mysterious man while working backstage at a country music concert in Vegas, she’s all about what’s happened in Vegas staying there.
Country music superstar Tyler Blue just wants a weekend of anonymity…though there’s something about the spunky waitress with the streaks of purple hair that tempts him like no other. Until the next morning, when they both wake up with fuzzy memories…and rings on their fingers.
Convincing Sherry to maintain the ruse for his public image isn’t the hardest part—it’s reminding himself that their time spent playing husband and wife in her small town of Magnolia Springs can’t last. Tyler’s first love will always be music—and the road is no place for a sweet downhome girl.
An admitted Diet Mountain Dew addict and homeschool mom, she gets through each day by laughing at herself, hugging her kids, and watching way too much Food Network with her husband. She writes young adult, new adult, and adult romance, and LOVES talking with readers.
- Write or love YA contemporary? Maybe try also reading adult (such as my sweet small town romances) and/or historicals.
- Write historical? Give fantasy and suspense a shot.
- You never know what will inspire you…or even where your voice truly is…until you try.
- What made you smile at that passage? What had you skimming those pages? What spoke to you, what did you hate, what had you fuming at your book yet determined to find out what happens?
- These are all clues to helping you find your unique voice and style.
- In each scene, try to include at least 3 of your senses. It brings the pages and story to life and jumps off the page.
Accidentally Married on Purpose by Rachel Harris
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I adore Rachel Harris and this past week I went on a binge of all her upcoming titles. The Love and Games series is one of my favorites so there was no question I was reading it as soon as I could get my hands on it. This was exactly the kind of book I needed this week!
Accidentally Married On Purpose highlights Sherry, who we’ve all gotten to know in the previous two titles in this series, and while I can honestly say that the men in this series are what I usually love most, I was really looking forward to this title because Sherry is the girl most of us can relate to. She’s been burned in her past relationships, but she loves the idea of love and she isn’t giving up on it! She’s spunky and sassy and she gives with her whole heart and I adore her.
In Accidentally Married On Purpose Sherry is off to Las Vegas to oversee a job catering for the super popular country band Blue. She plans on it being her last irresponsible weekend and she’s determined to have a fling before she is back in Louisiana to get serious about her future… and possibly that Mr. Boring Accountant who she is prepared to settle for.
A chance encounter with Tyler, who she thinks is a roadie for the band, leads to a whirlwind weekend where she’s swept off her feet and eventually a night of drinking… and an accidental marriage.
Only there’s more to Tyler than she initially knows.
You know what happens when you’re in Vegas is supposed to stay in Vegas… unfortunately that isn’t exactly the case here.
Tyler reveled in the idea that Sherry didn’t know who he was. The anonymity was amazing and his omission in telling her the truth bites him in the ass when their accidental marriage is found out by the press. So what better way to save both their images than to pretend it’s actually real? Nothing could go wrong with that right?
I think what I loved most about this book in the series was seeing Sherry navigate her relationship with Tyler.
Now don’t get me wrong – Tyler absolutely gets a spot on the swoony guy list … I mean a guy with a guitar *flail* but that’s not the only thing he has going for him… he’s so lovely to Sherry and after seeing the assfaces she’s put up with, it’s so nice to see her with someone amazing and who treats her the way she should be treated. Plus, you guys – I swooned at the sweetest post-it notes in the world that he leaves her.
Let me warn you all now, this is a book from the Entangled Bliss series, which means it’s a clean romance – no dirty parts. Yes I miss those parts, but Harris makes up for it with some of the sexiest and romantic moments I’ve read in a while. I loved the chemistry between Ty and Sherry and the build of the relationship. When making the deal with each other they made some ground rules and one of those was that despite their steamy night in Vegas, there would be no sex now… hopefully to avoid heartbreak when their time together would be up. When no sex is on the table, the focus falls on getting to know each other and their families and that is exactly what happens.
If you’re looking for a light, romantic read I can’t recommend this series enough and once this title is released the series will be done. This both makes me incredibly happy and sad at the same time. Happy because I know that means Ms. Harris will be working on more new things and sad because that means we’ve met all the Robicheaux family members … but hopefully that just means we’ll get to meet more of those amazing women and swoony men that are trapped inside her head. (I think I’d love to hear more about Charlie!) I am really looking forward to more in this genre from Rachel Harris. Go grab these books now!
