The day we officially graduate from college is nothing like how it’s depicted in the movies. I throw my cap in the air and it comes down and cracks someone in the forehead. The keynote speaker loses his notes in a gust of wind and decides to wing it, delivering a thoroughly uninspired commencement address on turning mistakes into the building blocks for a brighter tomorrow, complete with awkward stories about his recent divorce. No one on film ever looks like they’re going to die of heatstroke in their polyester gown… I’d pay someone a lot of money to burn all the pictures that were taken of me today.
But it still manages to be perfect.
Because holy shit, we’re done.
Mia and her best friends Harlow and Lola have just graduated college and to celebrate their achievement they go where any self-respecting college graduate with a newfound sense of freedom would…LAS VEGAS.
I don’t do eye contact well. I don’t usually do conversation well, either. In fact, the only muscles I never seemed to really master were the ones required for easy speech. But for some reason-let’s blame the alcohol-and without looking away from the hot man across the bar, my lips readily form the word ‘Hi.’ He says it back, before pulling the corner of his lip between his teeth, and wow, he should do that every day and to every person he meets for the rest of his life. He has a dimple and I reassure myself that it’s just the lighting and shadows playing it up because there’s no way in hell something so simple could possibly be this adorable.
Ansel and his boys Finn and Oliver are on a short vacation in Vegas when he seeing Mia from across the room.
Let’s just say that… What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay.
I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars. My favorite character would have to be Ansel with his loving personality (which can get him in trouble) and his dirty mind (and mouth, oh the things he teaches Mia to say in French). At first I didn’t necessarily like Mia, but as I read on and she grew she got better. I didn’t think that I would like their relationship because it was sort of rushed, but I was pleasantly surprised when everything slowed down(in a good way) and they really got to know one another. I didn’t like that so much of their relationship was based on sex, it wasn’t bad but it did over take the storyline at parts. This book can be read as a standalone, but there are other books in the series (about different characters). I also have to say that I’m excited to read the next book in the series because it’s about one of Mia’s best friends Harlow (she made me laugh).
