ARC Review: The Accidental Newlywed Game by Jaci Burton

Wedding planner Honor Bellini is in Las Vegas for a work convention when she runs into her sister's ex-fiance, Owen Stone, who's also in town for his craft brewery business. They're both glad to see a familiar face from home...until a night of drinking leads to waking up in bed together--and a marriage certificate from a wedding that neither of them can recall.

Horrified, Owen suggests an immediate annulment. Honor agrees, but when they spend the day together, their chemistry is overwhelming. Plus, Honor has a flash of memory of their steamy wedding night, and she definitely likes what she remembers. They decide to wait before canceling the whole marriage thing, though they both head back to Oklahoma determined not to tell anyone at home what happened in Vegas.

The problem is, Honor and Owen can't seem to stay away from each other--or keep their hands off one another. The longer they keep their secret, the harder it gets to deny how they really feel. Even worse, this huge secret has the potential to hurt someone they both care about. They need to get an annulment before this accidental marriage turns into love. 
Lately, I've had a bit of trouble getting into the books I've been reading. I figure it has to do with the fact that it's summer and warm out. It's easy to get distracted. But with The Accidental Newlywed Game, I had no issue jumping into it and loving it right away. 

I was so glad to finally get Honor and Qwen's story. I knew we had a chance for some drama and the story didn't let me down. 

I wasn't sure how the title would match the story. I hadn't read the description so I went in blind and I was so glad for it. I totally loved being shocked about why and how they got together. The author did a great job of making you feel just as shocked as the characters. 

I loved Honor and Qwen's interactions together. How they didn't know they were perfect for each other in the beginning is a shock to me. They are perfect together. Right away you see that Qwen will do anything for her including getting a pet. 

You'll love seeing how they fall in love and don't even know it or want to believe it. They both have a ton of guilt because of Honor's sister Erin and all that went down between her and Qwen so I think that makes it harder for these two to share their true feelings. 

One of the best parts of the story is the conflict between the sisters. Having a sister I know how we act with each other and how we can at times refuse to speak to each other but in the end, work it all out. That part of the book was very well done. As a whole, this is a great story that you'll really enjoy reading. I will say that it is better if you take the time to read the series in order because it makes each book easier to follow. Plus it makes Erin's anger much easier to understand if you read her story first. Not to worry the who series is very good and easy to read. Have any of you read her?
