Title – What Happens in Vegas Doesn’t Always Stay There
Author – Terry Towers
Publication Date – April 9, 2014
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? Not always…
After being left at the altar by her high school sweetheart Genevieve Fennel is done with love, done with romance and done with men. Period. She’s always been a good girl, while her friends indulged in casual encounters and they seem happy and satisfied enough. So why can’t she?
Meeting NYPD officers Dane and Graham Porter in Vegas gives her an opportunity to be the bad girl she thinks she needs to be. After a night of passion, she finds herself embarrassed of her wanton behaviour, but takes solace in the fact she can put the night behind her once she returns home.
Back in New York just when she thinks she can forget what happened in Vegas, destiny shows it has other plans. When there’s a break-in at her boutique, it’s the sexy-as-sin Porter brothers who are sent to her rescue intent on stirring up the feelings of abandon she’s trying to forget.
How can she forget what happened in Vegas, when the two men who brought her to such heights of pleasure refuse to let her go so easily? Even if she does decide to open her heart to them, how can she make a choice between the two amazing brothers, both intent on winning her affections? Or maybe she doesn’t have to…
This was a quick, fun, and light read. It’s easily doable in one sitting. The premise behind the story and the idea of two brothers and one girl was extremely intriguing to me. I just had to see where the story line would take us – because quite honestly, I was trying to play out all the scenarios in my head. The story wasn’t overly dramatic or full of angst, but I think it had the perfect amount for what the author was going for.
I really did feel like there were several twists and turns in this book that I didn’t see coming. I loved each and every character and found myself invested in them and their futures. Ginny was a jilted bride who would then have trouble trusting men. She decided to take her honeymoon trip so the money wouldn’t be wasted and I was pleasantly surprised to see her let go while she was in Vegas. Somehow, these men made her feel comfortable enough to just let her hair down for a single night. You can’t help but feel bad for Dane. He always felt second best, even though it was due to his own faults. I really appreciated that he never turned into the jerk though, which could have easily been done in several scenarios. I’d love to see more of him and his past in subsequent novels. Furthermore, I absolutely adored Graham…he was just that sweet, light-hearted, romantic guy. I often times found myself wanting to roll both brothers into one guy because they were such opposites, but equally desirable. One was this creature of habit out to seek his prey, while the other knew what he wanted and was soft and romantic – but still not without his doubts and faults.
The sex scenes were seriously freaking hot! That menage scene in the beginning had me burning up! On the one hand, I wish there were a couple more, but I can also respect not having the book be completely based around them so that there was actual content. I was incredibly grateful that the author wrote from all three characters’ points of views. It was so useful to be inside each of their heads so that we, as readers, always understood where their head was and feelings were. I also love a good happily ever after! There was no cliffhanger, but I definitely wish I could see more into all of these characters’ futures! I’m hoping for more books in this series — hint, hint! This was my first book by Terry Towers, but I look forward to reading more by her!
