Official Blurb:

Lars James isn't looking for happily-ever-after but then, he hadn't planned on meeting her either.
To most, Kennedy Shae is all sass and curves as one of the cocktail girls at the infamous Little Black Dress bar in Sin City but from the minute billionaire Lars James sets eyes on the sexy brunette, he knows there's more to her than meets the eye and he has to know more! Lars isn't the marrying kind but there's something about Kennedy that sets him on fire even though he has plenty of reasons to put out that flame and keep walking. Kennedy is sick of Vegas and is just trying to get back home to Tennessee so when Lars makes her an offer she can't refuse, she finds herself getting more than she bargained for — mainly a man she can't forget!
These two aren't looking for love but love finds them in the most unlikely of places...

My Thoughts:

This was a great addition to Flirt Club’s first collaboration ‘The Cocktail Girls’.
It follows the same formula as the other books set in the ‘Little Black Dress’ nightclub and in this book, we meet Kennedy a sassy and curvaceous waitress. She is on thin ice with her boss as she doesn’t take any nonsense from the patrons.
One evening she is having trouble from a rather pushy customer, and Lars comes to her rescue in more ways than one.
Neither Kennedy or Lars are looking for love and certainly not a commitment of any kind. Lars is your typical rich boy bachelor having a good time, and Kennedy wants to get out of Vegas as quickly as possible. However, the more time they spend together, the more their feelings can’t be denied or ignored. I liked how everything was thought through. Nothing was rushed and made the story more realistic.
This has the usually happy ever after but I was disappointed with the cliche ending. Lars says he doesn’t want kids but then does a 180 and wants to see Kennedy swollen with his baby. I hate this; people can live happily ever after without it involving kids. So I felt the ending was a bit of a cop-out, especially considering Lars’ character and how everything else had been thought out. I would have liked something a little edgier. For this, it lost a star from the rating from four down to three. It just didn’t sit right with me and ruined the overall story a little.
