**This book can be read as a standalone**

For aspiring journalist Harlow Ransom, life is just a well-oiled machine, and if she plans well, all things will go accordingly. And that is exactly why Harlow lives her life by perfectly polished to-do lists that she refuses to stray from—even when she’s celebrating her 21st birthday in Sin City.

1. Visit the Boom Boom Blues Lounge
2. See the water show at the Bellagio

Things can’t possibly go askew if she crosses things off her list one by one. But after a night of celebrating leads to waking up in bed with a sexy stranger and a ring on her finger, Harlow realizes that in no point in time did she ever have “Get Married” on her trusty to-do list. Yet that’s exactly what she did.

Professional snowboarder Trace Stone loves a good challenge—he’s all about the win. And this time, he’s going to find a way to win over the feisty, meticulous Harlow. The wedding may have been spontaneous and impulsive, but when he said “forever,” he meant it. Now, the only thing he wants on Harlow’s to-do list is him—from this day forward.

***Stephenee -#NerdGirlSteph’s  Review***
I have read all of author Christine Manzari’s books and each time that I think I have found a favorite, she wows me with the next one! This book was an epic love story that starts out with both the reader and the characters having absolutely no clue that their lives are about to be flipped around and turned inside out. The author takes the reader on a roller coaster ride that starts out at 60mph and never slows down. The reader can’t possibly figure out what is going to happen since it almost seems as if the author wasn’t sure either….and that is the best kind of book in my opinion.

The characters of this story are instantly lovable and relatable by the reader. Harlow is NEVER without a list….she makes a list for every aspect of her life and she needs the routine, the stability and the checking off of things to make her life run smoothly. She has a regimented father that she feels that she can’t disappoint and 2 step-sisters who want her to let loose. Harlow decides that on her 21st birthday she will do just that….but as we all know “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas…” except a marriage to a man that she doesn’t know but actually enjoys and could learn to love if she didn’t already have set plans for her life.

Trace Stone is trying to come back from an accident that may cost him his snowboarding career and has no intentions of finding a girlfriend, let alone a wife, but a drunk night in Vegas changes everyone’s plans. He makes some changes that he didn’t think he was capable of and decides that he really does want to stay married. Now he just has to change her mind and her list to include him.

The reader can’t help but zoom through the pages of this book – and once they get to the end they start reading it all over again because they have to see what they missed the first time around. It is a fun read, an exciting read and one that instantly becomes the readers favorite (so far) by this author! Don’t miss out on any of author Christine Manzari’s books – they are amazingly good!! Sit back and enjoy this one, because you are in for a wicked good ride!
