ARC Review: Loving the Odds by Stefanie London

Title: Loving the Odds

Author: Stefanie London

Synopsis:

He's a risk she's willing to take...

Risk analyst Bailey Reuben might be in Las Vegas, but the last thing on her mind is sin. She’s there to find her jerk of an ex and get her grandfather’s watch back. Instead, she finds a smoking hot stranger. A stranger with a crazy plan to help her retrieve her family heirloom and get revenge. It’s a bad idea—she calculates risks for a living, after all—but she can’t say no.

Bad boy PR guru Lance Fulton is all about helping the gorgeous, quirky Bailey. She’s in desperate need of some fun, and pretending to be her new boyfriend is the perfect way to help her see how sexy she is, get the watch, and show her ex what he’s missing. But the more they get to know each other—and the hotter their attraction burns—the higher the probability one of them will end up with a broken heart…

***MY REVIEW***

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

4 out of 5 stars

I have read and reviewed enough of the What Happens in Vegas books now that I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but it can't be helped because these books are just such fun, sexy, light-hearted romances and Loving the Odds, Stefanie London's contribution, is not an exception. I really enjoyed this book that follows characters Bailey and Lance as they pretend to be in a relationship, so that Lance could prove to his boss that he's serious enough for a promotion and Bailey can get some help retrieving a family heirloom from her horrible ex. While they spend most of the book in a "pretend" relationship, the very real romance that develops between the two of them as a result was the best and made me so happy. They were one of the most adorable couples and I loved them so much.

But as much as I loved the romance, the real highlight for me in this book was the way everything played out in terms of Bailey getting back the watch. I can't go into it in detail because of spoilers but the scene made me laugh out loud and made me love Lance even more.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was another great romance in the What Happens in Vegas series and I can't wait to read some of Stefanie London's other books because this book has made me crave some more of her writing.
