What happens in Vegas…could be a fantasy come true.
Between nursing school and starting their careers, Reagan, Andrea and Natalie have had no time for dating. After saving up for a special vacation, they’re on their way to Vegas for a long-awaited weekend of fun, sun, gambling and partying.
When their luggage goes missing, an impromptu shopping trip leads them to James, who makes them an unusual offer—to be part of the female scenery at his boss’s upcoming party. Not just any scenery, but women who are pretty in a real way, not the nipped, tucked and dyed Hollywood version.
Accept a “private party” invitation from a complete stranger? These ladies weren't born yesterday. Yet before “no thanks” crosses their lips, Reagan discovers who James’s boss really is: Declan Carter, an actor she’s crushed on for, well, forever. Now she’s determined to be the eye candy who catches Declan’s eye. No matter what it takes…
Warning: Epic shopping trip results in meeting hot men. It is recommended that all credit cards be placed out of reach before reading.
This was a short FREE prequel to what promises to be a brilliant new series. In "Wicked Nights" I was introduced to Reagan, Andrea and Natalie. All great friends but all very different characters and I can't wait to find out all about each one of them as the series progresses.
The story was set in Las Vegas and the girls were ready for a weekend of partying. Well, two of the girls were. Reagan just wanted to sleep! I got the impression that Reagan was the sensible one of the group, so I'm looking forward to seeing if she embraces the party capital of the world!
She had no idea what she was walking into, but she had a feeling
she needed to hold on tight. It was going to be a wild ride.
After meeting James on their first night in Vegas, the girls were invited to a party that was being held by the famous actor, Declan Carter. Of course, the girls weren't going to turn down the opportunity to rub shoulders with the stars and excitedly headed over to the event.
This party could be amazing and we could end up having the best time ever.
Or it could end up a total bust and we bail quick.
I'm just afraid if we say no, we'll end up regretting it forever.
Although I only met Declan Carter for a short time, he appeared to be a nice guy. Declan was sick and tired of the superficial women that constantly threw themselves at his feet just because of who he was. He wanted a normal woman, someone who was not just interested in his appearance and so when Reagan, Andrea and Natalie walked into his party he was immediately drawn to them. The girls made a refreshing change and he wanted to know them more.
Although this was a quick read, it gave me a chance to know the characters and gave me an idea of the premise to the story. It was a really fun and lively novella and I can't wait to see what is going to happen in part one of the series "Reckless Nights".
"Wicked Weekend" gets ❤️❤️❤️❤️ from me!
