How to celebrate when your birthday is on the same day the Mayan calendar ends? Las Vegas of course! All the hype about the end of the world is of no concern to Samantha as she and her girlfriend's head to Vegas to celebrate. When she's separated from her friends she ducks into a bar to regroup and finds herself flirting, and then going to her room, with Russ Weaver. The sexy man is on leave and needed a breather from his overwhelming family. Has fate thrown them together?
I wish there had been more closure to the mystery of the aliens because that just drove me nuts when the book ended. I'm a detail-oriented kind of girl. Twisting the end of the world, fated romance and diabolical motives isn't easy to do but the author did a good job keeping the story moving. The hint of a higher purpose in Sam and Russ being together points to more going on but the reader is left without a definitive reason. Sam and Russ have smoking chemistry and the volatility of the situation speeds up the evolution of their attraction and relationship development. Two strangers become a committed couple literally overnight and no amount of machinations or manipulation can separate them. A good story that left me wanting more.
A one-night stand turns into a partnership for survival…
Party girl Samantha Sanders is celebrating her thirtieth birthday in style—a road trip to Las Vegas for a long weekend with her girlfriends. Staying in the swankiest hotel on the strip, she’s naked and in bed with the sexiest guy she’s ever laid eyes on when the clock strikes twelve. Who knew the world would really end December 21, 2012? Those Mayans, they weren’t lyin’…
Russ Weaver is above all else a soldier. Looking for a little fun before spending Christmas with his crazy family, a weekend on leave in Vegas unexpectedly turns into his newest mission——protecting the sweet, scared woman he happens to be in bed with when the world as they know it is over.
Wandering throughout the virtually abandoned streets of Vegas, the fine city has turned into a war zone. Their only hope to get out alive is to stick together—and fight those who wish to cease their endeavors. Permanently.
Warning: It’s not all doom and gloom. A sexy man who’s a fierce protector, a sassy woman with fortitude of steel, these two stick together through it all. Watch the sparks fly—true love does endure. I promise.
