What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
But what didn’t happen in Vegas seems to follow them everywhere.
Lola and Oliver like to congratulate themselves on having the good sense to not consummate their drunken Las Vegas wedding. If they’d doubled-down on that mistake, their Just Friends situation might not be half as great as it is now.
… Or so goes the official line.
In reality, Lola’s wanted Oliver since day one—and over time has only fallen harder for his sexy Aussie accent and easygoing ability to take her as she comes. More at home in her studio than in baring herself to people, Lola’s instinctive comfort around Oliver nearly seems too good to be true. So why ruin a good thing?
Even as geek girls fawn over him, Oliver can’t get his mind off what he didn’t do with Lola when he had the chance. He knows what he wants with her now … and it’s far outside the friend zone. When Lola’s graphic novel starts getting national acclaim—and is then fast-tracked for a major motion picture—Oliver steps up to be there for her whenever she needs him. After all, she’s not the kind of girl who likes all that attention, but maybe she’s the kind who’ll eventually like him.
Sometimes seeing what’s right in front of us takes a great leap of faith. And sometimes a dark wild night in Vegas isn’t just the end of a day, but the beginning of a bright new life…
There is always this very similar motif in every romance book. They met. They fell in love. They encountered an obstacle. They fight. They overcome it and fell in love again. The end. However, what special about Christina Lauren’s works is that they manage to make it incredibly pulling and lovable. And this 3rd installment of Wild Seasons? Simply amazing!
I’ve been waiting so long for Lola and Oliver’s story, and they definitely didn’t let me down. I love every single moment about Lola and her witty reactions, alongside with The Amazing Oliver (he is awesome beyond words), and how their relationship developed from the night at Vegas. And they are geeks too, awesome ones, so I don’t know how anyone could manage to hate them. “Loliver” is just super adorable and toe-curling cute.
This series has one of the most awesome side characters cast. Their friendship is crazingly amazing and admirable, and you just can’t go wrong with a group of wonderful friends, a comic store, and a hilarious “shopkeeper” Not-Joe (Christina Lauren should write a story about him soon, or else I will kidnap him for my own).
Overall, I really enjoy this book. It’s funny, witty, and have all the steamy elements a romance book needed. Can’t wait for more from the authors!
