My book reviews

Dark Wild Night by Christina Lauren

Blurb…

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…

My Review…

I’ve always been a fan of best friends turning into lovers, and this story between Lola and Oliver was just perfect. It was fully based on this love story but it had Lola’s career being a comic book author, and Oliver’s comic book store. This book was hot and saucy with the right amount of sex scenes.

Lola and Oliver’s banter.

“Only geeks, and only twice.”
“Well, now more people will.” He says it with such easy calm. Sometimes I want t put him in a cage with a lion and measure his blood pressure. 

Oliver and Lola talking.

“I’m glad you approve,” I say. “I’m parked around the corner.”She follows me out, saying goodbye to Joe. And then she takes my arm and smiles up at me. “I definitely approve.”
Yep. I am fucked. 

Oliver’s Point Of View.

I realise that her eyes aren’t on the box at all, but on my bare stomach, where my shirt is ridding up.I clear from throat and Lola blinks back up to my face, before turning about six different shades of pink. Joe is already laughing, and wearing the smuggest ‘I told you so’ face I’ve ever seen. 

The song that suits this book is ” This Girl by Kungs & Cookin’ On 3 Burners.’

I rate this book 4.5 stars.
