Preschool teacher Laura Nichols is celebrating her birthday and sister's bachelorette party in Vegas. Being in Sin City is thrilling and she intends on tapping in to her wild side. Laura can't resist the added excitement that comes with saying yes when a hunky man off the street proposes...
FBI agent David Abruzzo has been working undercover as a thug to bring down the Zacolli crime family, but his cover depends on convincing the mob he came to Vegas for a quickie wedding. If they catch on to his plan, his cover's blown, and he's as good as dead.
Over the course of 48 hours, David and Laura use rollercoasters, glowing condoms, and exotic male dancers to stay alive and bring the crime family down. But it will take more than Lady Luck, one night of passion, and a little Vegas magic to turn their fake marriage into something real.
I really enjoyed The Wedding Gamble. It's a fun, quick novel set in Vegas full of romance and mystery.
Laura is in Vegas to celebrate her sister's bachelorette party even though no one remembers is her birthday and her little sister is very self center. 27 Dresses style.
While doing an errand for her sister, Laura meets David in front of a chapel where he asks her to do him a little favor.
Now, Laura was a bit drunk and on medication, which is why she ends up marrying David in the first place. Because you see, Laura is the good girl. The one who always thinks things through and doesn't do wild things like that.
David was in Vegas doing his job as an undercover agent for the FBI. But when his mob boss finds out he's in Vegas when he should be in Chicago, David must come up with a excuse: He's there for getting married.
David is a jaded cop. He's seen and done too much in the name of justice and he lives for nothing more than putting criminals in prison. Laura is a preschool teacher. She loves kids and wears her heart in her sleeve. She's all David would like in a woman... if he wanted to settle down.
And now, both of them need to keep up the marriage in order to stay alive.
The Marriage Gamble is great. There were some moments where I found myself laughing at the crazy situations these two got themselves in only 48 hours. And sometimes I questioned how David kept himself alive alone all this time because Laura save him most of the time.
Laura is a fun character when she's pretending to be this bold woman David married. She goes for what she wants, she's brave and has the funniest on-the-spot improv.
She really grown in the book, from the perfect girl everyone got advantage off to the woman who could stand up for herself.
And David is really swoon worthy. He makes sure she has a good birthday and does everything he can to help her see just how amazing she is.
The Wedding Gamble has everything you'd expect from a novel set in Vegas and we all just love that, right?
