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.
Hitched is based around a tried and true theme; woman wakes up from a drunken night in Vegas with no recollection of the night before - and lo - she's married! Not that I have a problem with this popular theme, but I started reading Hitched with an expectation of something to break it from the box I had inadvertently put it in.
The romantic story of Hitched is pretty good. Sebastian and Kacie have their lives pretty much mapped out and are on track to get what they want from their careers and friendships etc. But all that is put to the test when Sebastian decides he wants his impromptu marriage to Kacie to continue and begins wooing his reluctant and fiercely independent wife.
Kacie is not interested and immediately sets in motion an annulment, but all the flowers and gifts, and the sexy doctor himself, wear down her resolve and a relationship ensues - if only temporarily.
Hitched is a rather sex laden read, I'm not sure I'd go as far as to say the sex was erotic - exuberant yes - but I didn't really get a hot and sexy, erotic feel from it. In fact it was pretty normal sex when compared to some of the more well known erotic books hitting the headlines these days!
Overall I liked the story and Hitched was a relatively quick and easy read, although the second half of the book was filled with frequent short chapters that took away from the flow somewhat. I would also have liked more character building if anything as I found Sebastian and Kacie both lacked depth and therefore I wasn't 100% invested in them.
Still a good read for fans of an almost fairytale romance, 3.5 stars.
