I have to say this was a cute quick read.
Skye is a restaurant manager out for the evening with her friends. She was raised in a commune and is a vegetarian. She believes in Fate and also in being in the moment.
Tim is a Marine…. born… bred… raised a Marine. He is out on a last pre-deployment leave with his buddies in Vegas. After being on great behavior the entire trip he finally lets his guard down and starts playing blackjack with a great winning streak. He is also drinking heavily although he doesn’t show it to those who do not know it well. While drunk and in a moment of pure craziness, he meets and then makes out with Skye. In the middle of this heavy kissing session behind a potted plant he asks her to marry him and she not only accepts… they go do the whole quickie Vegas wedding.
The morning after leads to him leaving her without saying goodbye and heading back to base. She tracks him down and the fun ensues.
I loved this book and am looking forward to the additional stories along with more glimpses of Skye and Tim. They really do seem to be a good match in that she brings him out of his shell and he brings a needed grounding to her personality and life.
You will find yourself frustrated at times because like most conflicts… they could be resolved if the two would just talk to one another but in this case I think it was easier to understand because they truly did not know one another.
