Angel is known as the Ice Princess at work, thanks to her ex boyfriend and finds herself going to Vegas for work and of all people going with her....is the ex. What Angel needs is a hot/sexy hero and she finds that in her best friend and neighbor, Trey. Angel is determined to melt her Ice Princess persona and turn into a hot, sex kitten and asks Trey to help her get her sexy on. What Trey doesn't realize is that things are about to change forever between them.
Written as a multi pov. This does have a HEA.
Nice story line, good characters, easy to visualize descriptions to details and steady dialogue.
All in all, a good read.

Sassy Beta Reading & Review
That doesn't happen in this story. Either Angie and Cindy are talking about how Angie isn't sexy enough to keep a man, or Angie and Trey are talking about how Angie isn't sexy enough to keep a man, or Trey and his sister Kathy are talking about...yes, you guessed it. And then, of course, it's Kathy and Angie rehashing the same banal conversation.
Apparently Ms. Brookes has never heard the phrase, "told her friend all about her feelings". That's what she could have written time and again, but no, we needed an instant replay every time.
So, there really want much of a plot. Really. Miscommunication, misunderstanding, and an ending right from the I Love Lucy school of comedic idiocy. (And I love I Love Lucy!)
Can you say Far-Fetched?
Going to pass on this writer's future works.
He agrees to go with her and she also gets him to agree to teach her how to seduce a man. he being the big ladies man, handsome, hunky, etc. He would be the perfect one to do it. He is attracted to her but doesn't want to act on it. However, she is doing everything she can to get him in the sack. It works. Ok so far, I didn't have a real problem with any of this. Then came the let me tie you to the bed, stark naked! He agrees. It is going well until she goes to untie his hands and the knot is too tight to get loose. She must be a total moron to tie a knot that she couldn't get undone. I was start6 to lose it here. So, she decides to get dressed, run down to the lobby and borrow a pair of scissors. He nearly panics. I could feel his anxiety here. Your worst nightmare, to be tied to a bed, naked, and no one around to get you out of it.
So she hangs a Do Not Disturb sign on the door and takes off. Well, here comes room service, totally ignores the sign and walks in! First of all in a high class hotel there is no way room service is going to just walk in with a do not disturb sign on the door. They would at least knock. Now, instead of the maid seeing his distress, she takes it personally and decides to beat him up. Good God this was just way too stupid for me!!! Why didn't they just get a razor out of their bathroom and cut the thing? I just couldn't get back into this. I quit reading. This was suppose to be funny. I didn't find the funny part. For me, it didn't work. Obviously others really enjoyed it, so read it for yourself and you decide.
Alrighty, folks. This story, it could have easily been not well liked because it fell along the lines of the stuff I usually don't like: third person and contemporary romance. Not that I don't like contemporary romances, BUT, most of them just fall short of giving me a connection to the story or characters. Not the case with this one though.
Angelina and Trey are absolutely loveable and completely perfect together. They are what made this story what it is. Their friendship was nothing short of sweetness to the tenth power. I was captivated by their relationship from start to finish. Seeing how Trey really feels about Angelina, oh my goodness... I adored it. I adored him. I adored them. It all went deeper than the whole "let's pretend" and it was evident in all the moments they shared. Not many book couples can pull it off right, but Angelina and Trey certainly had me believing they were real.
Only In Vegas kept my interest all the way through. I couldn't get enough of it. Or enough of the romance. Or of Angelina and Trey. All of it. If you love a good romance (scratch that, a great romance), then you'd better check out this gem by Lindsey Brookes. I need to actually buy a copy now because I want to relive this story again.
