What happens when what happens in Vegas does NOT stay there?

An office attraction becomes something more when they’re off the clock in this delightful romantic comedy by the USA Today bestselling author of Not the Girl You Marry.

State attorney Bridget Nolan is successful in all aspects of her life—except romance. After breaking up with her longtime boyfriend, she’s been slow to reenter the dating scene. To be honest, she has more important things to do like putting bad guys behind bars. But with her brother’s wedding right around the corner, she suddenly needs a date and fast. Lucky for Bridget, the legal intern is almost done with his program.

Matt Kido is dumbstruck by Bridget—total love at first sight—but there’s one problem. She’s totally off-limits while she’s his boss. But the moment he no longer reports to her, Matt decides to take a chance. An impulsive decision takes them to Las Vegas where, as the saying goes, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.

Unless you put a ring on it.

I adored the first book in this series of standalone romances, and Not That Kind of Guy is another stellar knock-out from Christopher. I absolutely love her feisty, sick-of-dating-bullsh** heroines who are not here to play. Bridget is a lady who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to go after it.

Matt Kido may be young and privileged, but he’s also a romantic at heart, and when he falls for Bridget, he falls hard.

Most romance readers have seen plenty of “whoops, we got married in Vegas” plotlines before, but I am obsessed with the way it was handled in Not That Kind of Guy. I’m not sure how she did it, but somehow Christopher made this tried-and-true trope feel fresh and new in ways I haven’t seen before. Bridget and Matt are such fantastic characters, and I loved seeing the push-and-pull of their relationship, and the ways it developed and matured over the course of the book.

Plus, the book is riddled with follow-ups to Not the Girl You Marry, and we get to revisit plenty of beloved characters from that book, as well.

A fantastic, feminist and sexy as hell romantic comedy, look for Not That Kind of Guy in stores tomorrow.
