One ring plus one wild night equals one crazy love

Sherry Robicheaux loves men. She loves love. And she loves an adventure. So when she meets a mysterious man while working backstage at a country music concert in Vegas, she’s all about what’s happened in Vegas staying there.

Country music superstar Tyler Blue just wants a weekend of anonymity…though there’s something about the spunky waitress with the streaks of purple hair that tempts him like no other. Until the next morning, when they both wake up with fuzzy memories…and rings on their fingers.

Convincing Sherry to maintain the ruse for his public image isn’t the hardest part—it’s reminding himself that their time spent playing husband and wife in her small town of Magnolia Springs can’t last. Tyler’s first love will always be music—and the road is no place for a sweet downhome girl.


Most people who know me, know that I adore Rachel Harris and I have loved everyone of her books I've read. I love the way she can write both YA and NA so seamlessly. She once mentioned that Sherry and Ty were perhaps her favorite to write in this series and I would have to agree. While I love Jason & Colby, Cain & Angelle; Sherry and Ty just have this chemistry that is so undeniable and a really exciting story. I am a huge fan of fake relationship plot lines, it's perhaps one of my favorites so this book really hooked me.

Sherry is a hopeless romantic. She wants true love and the fairy tale but she is always picking the wrong guys. After her latest heartbreak, she decides it's time to settle down with a nice, dependable, boring man. However, she wants one more wild fling before she straps herself to a life of mediocrity. Enter Tyler Blue. Tyler is a big time country star and music is his life. He's not a playboy like most people think but he doesn't want anything to get in the way of his dreams and he's afraid settling down would do just that. When he meets Sherry and she doesn't know who he is, he's intrigued by her and excited to have a night with a woman that doesn't want him because he's Tyler Blue. Too much tequila and a night in Vegas leaves them both with a little morning surprise.

I really love Sherry! She is sweet, smart and really down to earth. She loves her family and will do anything for them. She has dreams of her own but she puts them aside for her family. She's confidant but I love that she also has a bit of self doubt. It makes her real. No matter how confidant we appear, we all are a little afraid to fail. Tyler is the exact kind of guy that she doesn't want to fall for but as she gets to know him, she can see that he isn't at all what she expected and her heart betrays her. I feel like Tyler shows her that she doesn't have to settle, she just had to find the right guy.

Tyler is charming, sexy, sweet and misunderstood. Because he hasn't settled down or had a serious relationship, he is viewed as a playboy. However, that isn't him at all and I loved getting to know him because it's obvious from the start. He loves music; it's his passion and he doesn't want anything to derail his dreams. While I think he's a bit disillusioned to think that he can't have love because of his dreams, I understand his feelings, especially after learning a bit more about his family. Like Sherry, he is a family man and he is living the dream just as much for them as he is for himself. Despite his best efforts, he can't help but fall for Sherry and she definitely opens his eyes to life.

Sherry and Tyler have incredible chemistry. They were made for each other and it is obvious from the moment they meet. Sherry doesn't care about his money or his fame. She gets to see the side of Tyler that most people don't and it's the real Tyler Blue. What woman doesn't love a man that can sing and play the guitar? I really liked how protective he became of Sherry. He wanted to make her happy and to help her realize her dreams. I really respected Sherry considering what Tyler was asking of her and I loved that she was willing to do it because she truly cared about him and wanted to help him. She would never hinder his career but only encourage and support him. What started out as a drunkin mistake and then became a mutually beneficial agreement, turned  into a true love story. Sherry finally got her fairy tale ending and she deserved it!



  1. I finally got my hands on all three in this series so I'm super excited to finally get a chance to get on the RH train since you all seem to love her books! :-)

  2. Yay!! I can't wait for you to read them. They are so cute!

  3. I love all the characters in this series. I can't even choose between Cane and Tyler! I love them both and I adore the setting too. Such a feel good book!

  4. Oh I know, right?! How do you even choose? I think I liked Sherry and Tyler together the best but when it comes to just the boys, that's a tough one.
