That is where she meets Jack. He is an employee of the hotel and casino and he sees Georgie on security cameras looking as though she is at the end of her rope. Jack is a good guy and he goes to check on her. Because he is a good guy, he loses his job for leaving his post.
So Georgie and Jack both make some impetuous decisions together. That is how they end up married and on a plane to England. The plan is, Jack will pretend to be a fiancee and after the wedding they will return to Vegas and get an annulment.
The best laid plans do not always go as expected. Because they are actually strangers, simple family questions lead to interesting situations.
When they arrive in England and start spending time with Georgie's family, Jack becomes well loved by everyone. He is charming and works to fit in with the family. He is considerate of Georgie and works to help her face family squabbles and be strong.
This plot is well done. There are several coincidences which stretch credibility, but even they do not interfere with the enjoyment of the book.
Georgie has a great deal of ambivalent feelings. Her former fiancee, John, had changed her entire personality simply by being an uptight and buttoned down person. She had come to the conclusion that their relationship was OK, by ignoring the signs that there was no passion. When she returns home, she falls back into her old habit of being a free spirit. Jack brings out her humor and warmth. Slowly, the real Georgie begins to emerge. At times that is not exactly a good thing.
Jack is a terrific hero. He has a great deal to offer Georgie and I found it hard to believe she did not realize that much sooner. His past life has created a man who is very in tune with other people's emotions. He is intelligent, funny and very sexy.
If a reader is looking for a sweet and humorous story of two people who belong together, this is a book you will enjoy.
I received this book from the publisher through NetGalley. I am voluntarily writing this review and all opinions are my own.
When I'm reading Portia's books, I'm happy and content. I have an extra pep in my step each day, purely because I know that I get to curl up with her stories at the end of the night. The simplest of sentences will have me roaring with laughter and pausing for a moment to take in just how much I get her. Technically speaking, it's really the characters that I get, but because she is the amazing person behind them, I feel like there's a little bit of her in each one and I have loved them all, so naturally I take this to mean that we are destined to be best friends one day...
Georgie has just found her fiance cheating on her. Now, she has to go on their romantic stop over trip to Las Vegas, before heading to England for her cousins wedding, all alone. Even the fancy hotel and bright lights of Vegas aren't enough to make her feel better, well except maybe the contents of the mini bar, they help a bit. All she wants to do is curl up and wallow, but with a suitcase full of a brand new, very sparkly wardrobe, she decides she may as well try and enjoy it.
Jack can't help but leave his post when he sees a very attractive blonde, heading to the roof. When she takes her shoes off he has to intervene, but he never expects what happens next.
One night, One mistake and both Georgie and Jack have to figure out what an earth they are going to do about it. Can they get away with it and pretend like it never happened or will it be an Accidental Honeymoon with a happily ever after??
If I've said it before, which most likely I have, Portia's leading ladies are just everything to me. They are perfect in a totally imperfect way, which only makes me love them even more. Georgie is sexy, even though she doesn't always feel it, impulsive, I mean she just up and bought a whole new wardrobe full of skimpy clothes, vulnerable, her ex-fiance is an idiot and she's absolutely hilarious. I think the humour is always what gets me the most in Portia's stories. I love that Georgie, and Portia's other leading ladies, can give as good as they get and make me laugh. I sat on my couch and laughed, I read in the car and laughed and each time my husband would look at me and smile because he could see how happy I was. I even went to a wrestling show with him one night and sat on the bleachers reading before the show started and honest to goodness I looked up from my book and forgot I was in America for a few seconds, I was that immersed in Georgie's story. She was in England at the time, hence the confusion.
Not only was there Georgie making me laugh in 'The Accidental Honeymoon' but I had Jack cracking me up too. I loved that while he was drop dead gorgeous and muscly, it was his heart and character that made Georgie like him. The fact that muscly guys weren't really her type, made it funnier when she found herself reacting to his muscles, as well as, sweeter because she could see beyond them. Personally, I fell for Jack's charm, kind nature and the fact that he genuinely had a good heart, the muscles didn't hurt either!
My only 'complaint' about this story was that it wasn't longer. I wasn't quite ready to say goodbye to Georgie and Jack at the end. It didn't help that I made the classic bookworm error of reading the book so fast. Don't you just hate that? It's like the curse of a great story; you can't put it down but don't want it to end. Will I ever learn?!
If you are looking a laugh out loud comedy that will make you swoon, temporarily forget where you are and give you an extra pep in your step. You really have to read 'The Accidental Honeymoon' this summer. It's a great DEAL and I BET you, you'll love it!! ;)
