I accidentally married my new boss.
I’ve always been the ‘good girl’ in my friend group. But when my bestie dares me to let loose on my last free weekend before I start my dream job, I give in.
It’s only one night in Vegas. What’s the worst that could happen?
Here’s a hint:
Too many vodka tonics.
Grinding against a stranger’s hot, muscled body.
A whispered demand to join him in his hotel room.
One major hangover…
And a ring on my finger the next morning that I don’t remember saying yes to.
Marrying someone I just met is a huge mistake. But you know what’s worse?
Flipping him off as I threaten a restraining order…
Then discovering he’s my new boss.
Mara Greene: recently hired stage design coordinator for Pitfire Media. She went to Vegas with her friend, Lea, to
John Walloway: the extremely young and available CEO of Pitfire Media, a huge media company, where Mara recently got hired at.
“A girl like you deserves top-shelf everything.”— John, Overnight Wife
The relationship is quite fast. A lot of previous readers find it too simple, skipped parts of characters…but please note it’s supposed to be a simple plot of about 171 pages. It is not enough to really dive into John and Mara’s background and later relationship.
I always liked how Penny writes though there are other books of her’s that I liked more, this one is good enough. I think we try to find new and exciting stories outside the realm of rational reality when finding love is sometimes simple when everyone is on board and trusts the other. Yes, it’s insta-love/lust but what better love is there if everything seems to fit for the two of them?
This may not be for everyone’s taste but I love stories of strong semi-rational (who goes to Vegas to party then ends up married to the love of their life? not many, I assure you.) women who do not become insecure adults at a drop of a hat when one of the partners becomes dominant possessive and honest. It’s an easy read to enjoy the moment for John and Mara. Take it as that.
I would have appreciated more depth of the characters to better connect with them but I can see since this is a somewhat a “rushed wedding” that it warrants a few skips in detail of the characters. The family dynamics were skimmed quickly and focus was more on Mara and John.
I’m glad to see that Mara has a more rational thought about all that she had to go through. Of course, there is the initial shock/hesitation but upon further getting-to-know John, they seem to be perfectly matched. John is good at trying to abide by Mara’s request is honesty. Both are honest but with external people (Bianca) coming into play and nosy family members, it does put a strain in their already fragile, new relationship.
Moral of the Story: One can have success in her career and a balanced family life as long as she has the support and love of her partner.
