He called me “wife.” This man standing naked in front of me. Tall. Dark. Sexy as sin… He’s my husband?

Disjointed images from the night before, the night I can’t entirely remember, float into my mind. Meeting him in the bar. Sharing tidbits of our lives. I own a company that plans bachelor parties. He’s a pediatric heart surgeon. We both live in Las Vegas, but we come from very different worlds.

And then I remember that kiss. The way his lips brushed against mine, gentle at first, then harder, deeper, with more urgency. Sex in the elevator. Hot, forbidden, delicious.

I remember the way he made me feel. The way our bodies fit perfectly together. But I don’t remember marrying him. And now, he won’t let me go. Dr. Sexy who saves children for a living. He wants the summer to prove we are meant to be.

I can give him a summer. But can I give him a lifetime?

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas…or it changes your life forever.

WARNING: This book has lots of sex and lots of swearing. Now go enjoy it.

I was lucky enough to get an early copy of Hitched, because hello, look at that blurb! Maybe I’m a sucker, but I always end up reading these types of books where the main characters accidentally get married. Hitched wasn’t quite what I expected, but I still enjoyed it. It was sexy, flirty, and fun. Anyone wanting a quick, light-hearted, hot read should definitely check out Hitched!

Our heroine Kacie wakes up hungover and not remember anything from the night before… which means she has no clue how she ended up married to the sexy doctor Sebastian Donovan. Sebastian is literally sex on a stick, and add in the fact that he saves children for a living just makes him a total package. He’d be the perfect guy to end up accidentally married to, right? Well… Kacie’s not exactly looking to get married, not even to her attractive husband. But Sebastian sees the potential the two of them have, and they strike a deal. Kacie will get her annulment if she agrees to spend the entire summer spending time with and getting to know more about Sebastian.

“We’re from two different worlds. It would never work. What could a girl with a business degree who plans bachelor parties possibly have in common with a fucking pediatric heart surgeon?”
He throws his arm over my shoulder. “I don’t know. But there’s no harm in finding out, right?”

And by getting to know Sebastian, I mean Kacie and Sebastian get hot and heavy A LOT. Maybe a little too much, but only because the book isn’t very long. Still, Kacie and Sebastian do start getting to know each other better outside of the bedroom. It’s easy to see that Sebastian loves Kacie, maybe even since the beginning, so Kacie’s the one who holds back between the two of them. She’s not sure how to juggle a blossoming career and marriage. She’s worried she might have to give up one or the other, so she’s afraid to commit to spend her life with Sebastian, no matter how much she wants, and eventually loves, him.

Hitched was short, sweet, and sexy. I didn’t get hooked onto this book as much as I expected, but I definitely enjoyed it. It did get cheesy at times, and things seemed to be too easy for the characters, but I was able to overlook that for the most part. I’d recommend Hitched to anyone in the mood for a fun (and hot) read!

Now here’s an excerpt of Hitched! ❤


As I sink into the luxurious heat, my body breathes a sigh of relief. The tension and stress from the last few days drains out of me, and I close my eyes and lean back, enjoying the music, the sips of wine, the calm.

But it doesn’t take long for my mysterious future ex-husband to creep into my mind, undoing my reverie with memories of our torrid night together.

His hotel room had an extra large bath, one we used to full avail.

He undressed me slowly, his long fingers and strong hands caressing my body with each movement as I stood still, breathing deeply, taking in the moment. I stood naked before him while he was still fully clothed, and the disparity between us sent waves of erotic charge through me.

As I pull this memory up and view it like a movie in my mind, my hand dips under the soapy water and between my legs. I spread my labia and tease my clit, slipping a finger inside of me as I remember him doing the same that night.

His hand over my mound, finger exploring my wet center, my pussy aching for more of him. I could see his cock through his slacks, hard and demanding, and I wanted to free him from that constraint, but I also wanted to continue enjoying this moment as he worshiped me with his eyes and explored me with his body.

I rub at my clit, fingering myself as I use my other hand to tease my nipples. I want this to be him touching me, his fingers, his hands, his tongue and mouth. His cock. But I settle for the memories as I bring myself closer to climax.

He knelt in front of me, his mouth positioned at my pussy as he flicked a tongue out and lightly licked my clit. My body shuddered, knees weak as he pushed his tongue deeper into me, fingers digging into my hips, holding me tightly against his mouth. My hands fell to the top of his head, to his thick dark hair as he pleasured me beyond reason. The bath filled with water as I came hard in his mouth. He finally let me undress him, just before lifting me up and placing me in the steaming bath. He got in beside me, then pulled me onto his lap, impaling me on his hard cock.

My wet pussy took him in greedily, eagerly, and our bodies rocked together in the water, his hands exploring my breasts, waist, hips, his fingers finding my sensitive, swollen clit and sending me over the edge again, quickly this time, as I came on his cock.

I’m nearly there, the memory of him inside me tipping the scale as I come to thoughts of him, alone in my bathtub.

And I realize then that getting him out of my mind is not going to be as easy as signing a few papers.
