What Happens in Vegas: (Can’t Buy Me Love Book 1) by Leann Belle

Farah Adlin is never getting married.

Not now, not “someday,” and certainly not when she’s blackout drunk at her sister’s wedding in Las Vegas. So when she wakes up in an unfamiliar hotel room with a ring on her finger, the only logical explanation is that she won it from a vending machine, right?

She doesn’t have much time to dwell on it anyway, as Damien Vance, her boss and heir to the Vance fortune, assigns her to be the glorified baby sitter for his older brother for the week. Eric Vance is as obnoxious as he is handsome, immediately pushing all of Farah’s buttons and all of her boundaries. With one brother trying her patience, and the other acting unusually friendly, Farah’s starting to wonder if she’s going to survive her work-life long enough to find who put that ring on her finger.

A little about Leanne first:

2e

Tiffani Burkett, under the pen name Leann Belle, grew up in Los Angeles, CA with a story in her head, a comic book in her hands, and eventually, a motorcycle under her feet. But after a long career in software development, she went off on a road trip spanning 2 years, exploring the US, Latin America, and Southeast Asia with nothing but a motorcycle, a tent, and a lot of hope.

Over that trip, she discovered a love and talent for writing, and she’s now a published Journalist in Motorcyclist Magazine, the world’s oldest running motorcycle publication, and the author of multiple books, including travel memoirs, children’s books, and fiction novels. When she’s not behind the keyboard, she’s a licensed motorcycle road racer and scuba diver, a motivational speaker, an artist, and a seasoned adventurer.

Sherry Terry’s Review: 4.5-Stars

I found this book very enjoyable. The cover does work with the story as a romance but does not reflect what the characters look like in the story. This isn’t the end of the world, What Happens in Vegas is still a good read. This story is a nice sweet romance with a “happily ever after” ending.

Farah Adlin goes to her sister’s wedding in Vegas, the same place her job is having a convention for the Vance franchise of high-end hotels for the rich and famous. She wakes up the morning after in a strange room with a ring on her finger and a man next to her. With no memory of what happened after a lot of shots the night before, her first instinct is to run.

This is a campy fun read with twists and turns. Two billionaire brothers and a pretty employee of the hotel they own find themselves in a precarious situation. Just which brother is Farah married too? Tiffani Burkett knows her stuff and wrote What Happens in Vegas with witty dialog, great characterization, and lots of emotions. I found myself rooting for both Damien, Farah’s boss, and his brother Eric.

There were some small formatting issues, but that could be the device I read on. I give the book 4.5-Stars for some typos and weaker sentences. I feel that some of the sentences could be stronger. This in no way took away from my overall enjoyment of the story, What Happens in Vegas by Tiffani Burkett.

  1. What Happens in Vegas

    By Leann Bell

    Oh goodness what can I say about this book, but I loved it. I guess I am a true romantic at heart and love a happy ending. It’s one of those books you just can’t put down because you know something good is going to happen. Not necessarily “good” good, but exciting good.

    First I would have left the f word out completely but that’s just me. I really like Farah though because of her sense of humor, outspokenness and honesty. I loved the fact she had a good friend for a long time who just happened to be male. I loved her clumsiness and in spite of all her dad’s money, she lived on her own in a not so great neighborhood.

    The book was a little like a movie I saw, but not enough for plagiarism. I liked Damien. But really liked his brother Eric better from the beginning . So, I was very happy with the ending.

    All the banter kept me excited to see what was going to happen next and I really loved the way the author titled each chapter with the name of the speaker starting in chapter 6. I would have gotten confused otherwise.

    I will be looking for more books by this author, and I give this book 5 stars.
