Grace was waitressing at a local diner when Dominic Rosas came to town. Dominic stopped at the diner in order to make a call and chill out some before he went to confront his parents about their treatment of his sister. While Dominic was at the diner he noticed Grace noticing him and he was intrigued. There was something about her that called to his inner-self and he struck up a conversation. Talking with Grace was easy and after a few more visits to the diner he had a real feeling about her.
Dominic’s stay in Las Vegas was fueled by revenge and he was willing to do whatever it took to ruin his father. Even, if it meant finding a bride to give him the semblance of “roots” in the city. Luckily for Dominic, he knew of a woman who might be willing to make a deal in exchange for the security that money can buy. Grace was against the idea of marrying Dominic because she had already had a bad experience but when she was left no other choice in the matter, she said yes. What neither one of them ever expected was to feel something for one another and that made everything more of a challenge when Grace’s past threw a wrench into their carefully laid plans.
If you are interested in a fictional romance piece set in the 1950’s with a truly authentic feel then My Big Fat Vegas Wedding is exactly what you are looking for. The story is crafted in such a way that you feel taken back into history. The interactions between Grace and Dominic are spot on for the era and you even get the bonus of slimy mobsters and their shenanigans. There is much to capture your interest during this story with the sweet romance, dramatic tension, and a spot of humor all wrapped up in a vintage feel. With a steady pace, My Big Fat Vegas Wedding will be a story that keeps you engaged from start to finish!
This review is based on a complimentary book I received from Author, Lori Sizemore. It is an honest and voluntary review. The complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating.
The vices of Vegas have cost Grace dearly, life as a widow of a man killed as a result of the draw gambling had on him, means that she is not only fighting to keep a roof over her family’s head but running out of options on how to do just that. Married life with a gambler at the helm didn’t exactly mean that money was in plentiful supply and with him gone, the well is completely dry. But was a solution just around the corner, I hoped so because I liked Grace, she was strong because she had to be, she had her son to care for and a responsibility for her mother too, but she refused to be beaten by her situation, so when the suggestion of a quid pro quo marriage of convenience is put to her, I had no doubt that she would own that like a boss.
Dominic, wasn’t looking for love, it wasn’t even on his radar but what he was looking for was the leverage he required to wrestle the Lucky Casino away from his old man and having a family seemed like it would give him a foothold toward achieving that goal. Or would it?
I like Dominic, he gave the impression of being a good man, and I think at heart he was, he just had his eyes focused on avenging his sister and taking his father to task, so I understood why Grace was initially attracted to him and not just his proposal. But everything is not as she would wish and by the time she discovers the connection that he has with the place that is responsible for her current predicament, I think it was safe to say that she was ready to crumble.
How could she be in so deep with a man that has ties to the one place that she wants nothing to do with?
Can they salvage their marriage that was founded on convenience, Can they admit that they both have more to lose that they would have ever thought possible? I wanted Grace and Damien to be happy, I wanted them to work but I couldn’t help but worry that they had the weight of the past bearing down on them.
Could Damian prove that he was the man for her or would Grace be forced to admit that the man that she had given her heart was going to be the guy to break it.
The story was inviting, it drew me in and kept me captivated.
I love the way this author writes, she picks up on the most minute detail and doesn’t deal in fluff, there is a crispness to her work, especially her character conversations that ensures that no emotion is missed.
Evocative and Engaging, this is one to savour.
