Book Description

It’s time to play with the grown-ups.

Kindergarten teacher Cleo James needs a change. Three years at her widowed dad’s beck and call are enough. A weekend in Vegas at a sci-fi convention with her best friend will do for now, and the hot guy who wants to spend time with her only adds to her excitement. After all - it’s just for the weekend. What can possibly go wrong?

Multimillionaire Sam Mason is sick of gold diggers. He’s looking for someone who’ll fall for him, not his wallet. When he meets a shy, green-skinned slave girl, she pushes all his buttons - the best part is she has no idea who he is and mistakenly believes he’s a Chippendale. Between the sexual attraction and too much alcohol, he wakes up married to his green-skinned beauty, but the bride has vanished. Finding her will be a lot harder than he thinks.

Sensuality Level: Sensual

5.0 out of 5 stars What Happens in Vegas...Is Oh So Romantic! July 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Another wonderful love story by Suzanne Matthews! With her usual style and great characters, this story is a keeper. If we gave stars this one would be at least a 5.
While many stories have the same premise, it’s the details that make the story believable and remarkable. It’s the twists, surprises and all around fun that makes just a story a wonderful book you can’t put down. I thinks Suzanne Matthews is a queen at this.
Only for the Weekend starts just as the name suggests…a weekend in Vegas at a literary convention for sci-fi writers and those who like to dress in costume. Cleo’s BFF “Mitch” (aka Michele) is also an author and has a signing gig to do in Vegas. She talks Cleo into attending and helping her with her book signing, then they plan to have some girl time and fun. BTW Cleo is a school teacher and not a fun loving author; ah, let the fun begin! Mitch promises no one will know, they will be under assumed names and her job will be secure.
Cleo’s mother died a few years before, leaving her to take care of her broken hearted father. She broke up with “Dave the slug” a about six years before and has sworn off men who want wealth and power. Oh yeah, Cleo will be dressing for the event like an Orion slave girl. For those who never followed or maybe never saw Star Trek (you have no idea what you missed growing up); an Orion slave girl is green all over with beautiful eyes and hair and men are drawn to them like…well like Orion slave girls…
They arrive and see a couple of really hunky men in one of the lounges the night before the book signing. Sparks fly across the room, Mitch thinks they’re a couple of Chippendales looking for a little fun after their show. Actually, they’re Sam Mason, umber wealthy architect and so much more and his friend Charlie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Head over Heels in love overnight! August 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved this book! Susanne Matthews writing style is smooth and flowing, and the depth of emotion in her story left me breathless. The only reason I gave it 4**** stars is because the love between Cleo and Sam happened so incredibly fast that the book could have used an epilogue, giving the reader a look at their life after they'd had a chance to live together for maybe six or eight months. I can't wit to read another book by this talented author. In fact, I've already downloaded another one and will start it tonight!
