My friends used to tell me ‘What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.’ Clearly they lied, because there was no way the chemistry I had with Mel could ever be left behind.
However, my children, her career, and nine hundred miles between us meant that for seven years, Melanie Holstein was the one who got away.
I was Aiden Shaw, first-round draft pick turned the best quarterback the league had ever seen. I worked hard to secure my position in football history while balancing life as a single dad. Through it all, my Vegas spitfire was never far from my mind.
And considering her best friend was now with my best friend, it was pure and utter torture.
When my career took a devastating turn, Mel was the first person at my side. I was broken and defeated, but that stubborn woman was determined to piece me back together.
I liked to pretend Mel and I were destined for greatness, but Lady Luck had never been on our side. And the tragedy that followed might have been the hardest hit of all.

This is a NEW to me author & books but the BLURB is what caught my eye! So I was kind of going in blind as I say!!
This was a fun start, Mel and Aiden met in Vegas. And NO the ‘what happens in vegas stays in vegas’ term did not apply to Aiden because he couldn’t get enough of Mel. They spend a beautiful night together and when parted, Aiden pushed to keep Mel in his life. Mel is 8 years older than Aiden and so she feels like she should have her shit together and get this right. Something always went wrong, where Lady Luck was not on Mel’s side, ever! When Aiden is dealt some terrible news, Mel is determined to be there for him, help him through this.
This is a slow burn, friends-to-lovers romance with a twist. It is a lot more complex then it seems, in the good way of course. I feel for both of there characters and what they endure, now I am usually not a big fan of ‘older’ than Hero Heroines, so to my surprise it was refreshing. There were times she was a little over-powering for my taste but all in all I had a great time reading this and felt every single FEEL of this book!! Go find out if lady luck will finally set Mel free!!
