What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas...


Or it changes your life forever.

He called me "wife."

This man standing naked in front of me. Tall. Dark. Sexy as sin...

He's my husband?

Disjointed images from the night before, the night I can’t entirely remember, float into my mind.

Meeting him in the bar. Sharing tidbits of our lives. I own a company that plans bachelor parties. He’s a pediatric heart surgeon.

We both live in Las Vegas, but we come from very different worlds.

And then I remember that kiss. The way his lips brushed against mine, gentle at first, then harder, deeper, with more urgency.

Sex in the elevator. Hot, forbidden, delicious.

I remember the way he made me feel. The way our bodies fit perfectly together.

But I don’t remember marrying him.

And now, he won’t let me go. Dr. Sexy who saves children for a living. He wants the summer to prove we are meant to be.

I can give him a summer.

But can I give him a lifetime?

*This is a contemporary romance novel with a happily ever after. It does NOT have a cliff-hanger ending.

This romance has all the excitement and drama one would expect to happen to Vegas - beginning with a drunken wedding between two people who don't really know each other.  Well at least Kacie doesn't seem to remember.  Sebastian thinks it's the best thing to ever happen and he sets out to prove to Kacie that he's right.

I really enjoyed the first person telling of this story.  It can be hard to pull off, but if done correctly gives the reader some great insight into the main character.  This story is told by Kacie and she has quite an interesting way of telling it.  I loved her voice and colorful way of phrasing things.  She was a riot and really made you feel what she was feeling.

At first Sebastian seemed way too good to be true - a rich, sexy doctor that's in the career for the right reasons?  Way too good to be true.  But he's not perfect - just really close, and that is what saved him for me.  My heroes have to be at least a little flawed.  I loved that he was willing to give Kacie time to realize her own feeling - but at the same time he wasn't going to try and hide or deny his own.

The setting of Las Vegas was perfect for this story.  I loved the hubbub and bustle and the larger than life personalities.  It's just what I always imaged the place would be like (I've never had a chance to go myself).  Kacie's brother and best-friend play important parts in the story and it looks like perhaps they may be finding their own version of true love soon as well.

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
