Her first thought: “Who are you?”
It’s the morning after her cousin’s bachelorette party in Vegas and Megan Scott wakes up with the mother of all hangovers. Even worse, she’s in a stranger’s penthouse having woken up with something else as well – a funny, arrogant, sexy…husband!
Up until now, finding even a boyfriend had seemed impossible – been there, got the broken heart, sworn off men for good. Then a few martinis with Carter…no, Connor Reed and she’s gone from first meet to marriage in one night!
Megan wants a lawyer. But Connor’s shocking bombshell?
“I don’t want a divorce.”
I hadn’t planned to read Waking Up Married by Mira Lyn Kelly. It was free on Amazon so I ordered it and started reading immediately. I don’t read adult fiction much anymore, so it was something of a change. I wasn’t really sure what to expect.
For the most part Waking Up Married was funny and enjoyable chick-lit. I felt like there was something missing though. I wasn’t invested at all and think anything could have happened and I would have been like “Meh.”. The idea of a marriage based around mutual respect and appreciation rather than love was interesting, but the outcome was totally predictable.
The humor is what really kept me reading. I would have given the book a higher rating if the humor had stayed through the whole thing, but it didn’t. Like halfway through things got “serious” and the humor sort of just evaporated. Bummer.
I don’t mean to make it sound like I didn’t like this book. On the contrary, I found it enjoyable and finished it fairly quickly. Did I love it? No. Will I read it again? Probably not. Was it worth it? Yes.
