Fighter pilot Ben Rutledge loves his solitude. Which means spending a month of leave in overcrowded, over-glitzy Las Vegas isn’t up his alley, especially after his friend ditches him. His first inclination is to bow out, and quickly. Instead, he finds himself sharing drinks—and a whole lot more—with a sexy woman celebrating her birthday. After all, it’s just one night, and he can go back to his quiet life tomorrow.

Megan Shuttlekrump doesn’t have time for a boyfriend, much less a husband. But a night of celebratory drinks with a handsome stranger ends with a ring on her finger—and no memory of how it got there. Her new “husband” is over the top hot, but he’ll be out of her life once his leave is over. As long as they can find out which of the thousand or so chapels in Vegas married them…

Megan has no time for a life of her own.  She is on call day and night for her family.  Picking up the dry cleaning, taking kids to recitals, fixing costumes, you name it she does it.  But on the night of her birthday bash she meets a handsome stranger and wakes up with a ring on her hand.

Ben is a pilot for the Navy.  He is an introvert who is passed over for promotions due to his lack of interest in socialization.  He was supposed to be camping on his leave, but his friend stood him up and now he is on his own.  Trying to be more social he agrees to deliver a birthday cake to a party.  What he doesn’t count on is waking up married.

Megan and Ben do not remember much after they had drinks at the bar.  But one thing is for sure they are married.  On a mission to find the chapel they got married in the two agree to stay married while he is on leave.  Megan thinks her family is over the top and that Ben will disappear before his leave is over.

Wow this was such an interesting book.  Not what I was expecting at all.  The characters were unique and very interesting.  The story line was exactly what I was expecting, it was the characters that made this story so unusual.  I was intrigued from the first chapter.

Megan’s family are over the top and demanding.  They are crazy and loud.  Megan is sweet and loves them all.  Ben is quiet and reserved.  He doesn’t like huge crowds and withdraws into himself.  He prefers to be alone and is perfectly content.  That is until he meets Megan.  These two were perfect for each other.

This story touched a soft spot in my heart.  My son is very much like Ben.  He has what you would call Aspergers.  It is a social disorder.  He does not like big crowds and prefer to be alone.  He is independent and can take care of himself, but would rather stay home instead of hang out with friends.  So this story felt very real to me in that aspect.  Very easy to relate to.

Overall this book was an excellent read.  With its steady pace the story flows nicely.  The characters are not just fun, but interesting.  You will not want to put the book down once you pick it up.  A definite page turner.  If you are looking for a quick easy read, then this book is for you.
