Preschool teacher Laura Nichols is celebrating her birthday and sister's bachelorette party in Vegas. Being in Sin City is thrilling and she intends on tapping in to her wild side. Laura can't resist the added excitement that comes with saying yes when a hunky man off the street proposes...

FBI agent David Abruzzo has been working undercover as a thug to bring down the Zacolli crime family, but his cover depends on convincing the mob he came to Vegas for a quickie wedding. If they catch on to his plan, his cover's blown, and he's as good as dead.

Over the course of 48 hours, David and Laura use rollercoasters, glowing condoms, and exotic male dancers to stay alive and bring the crime family down. But it will take more than Lady Luck, one night of passion, and a little Vegas magic to turn their fake marriage into something real.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The Wedding Gamble was the perfect amounts of sweet, steamy, adrenaline fueled danger and laugh out loud funny. I enjoyed every fun and exciting moment of it. 

Laura was such a fun MC to read.  She's a preschool teacher and the type of girl who puts everyone's needs above her own, a bit of a pushover, safe, dependable...hate to say but a bit boring? She always does the right thing and is truthful and trustworthy. She's in Vegas for her younger sister's bachelorette party, even though it's her birthday...everyone has forgotten, all caught up in the wedding frenzy.

Then along comes David. Gorgeous FBI agent, deep undercover  with the mob. In danger of his cover being blown and his life on the line, he grabs Laura as she's wandering the Vegas strip looking for her hotel and through a funny it-only-happens-in-Vegas moment, Laura wakes up married.

It's a quick read but there's never a dull moment in this book and it had me turning page after page until next thing I knew I was finished. There was a wide range of appeal. The connection between Laura and David was incredibly sweet. Not to mention their chemistry was explosive and the steamy scenes had me all worked up! Holy crap. It's no joke y'all.

But it was much more than that, there was real danger that had my heart pounding. Laura was quite resourceful and brilliantly funny in some of these moments. The things that she came up with and that came out of her mouth to save their behinds had me laughing hysterically!

"What are you doing making out up here when you have a hotel room to go to?" Victor asked.
Why indeed? "The tables at the Pancake Palace are the exact right height," she blurted.
All three men stared at her.

Ahh so much funny. Sure it's a bit insta-love which under normal circumstances drives me absolutely crazy. But the intense 48 hour period that these two endure grants them a high level of emotions and I was totally able to look past that fact because this book was honestly such a fun read that had me hooked from the very start.

Thanks Entangled Publishing for sending me this book to read and review!!
