I rarely read new authors, but for some reason this book caught my eye. I have to say that it has made me want to read more of her books. The character development and story line was very well done. I do wish that the mother/daughter thing would have been explained a bit more, but it still did not leave a hole in the book because it was so well written.

The Runaway Bride Meets Elvis

Turning 30 is no big deal ¿ unless you are a model where aging is a death sentence. Hot headed as she is red headed, Paris James was not too keen on reaching her thirtieth. That was why she headed straight for Vegas to help ease her misery. She wriggled into a tight red sequined dress, partied the night away and gleefully threw herself at the sexy Elvis impersonator strutting his stuff on stage. `Elvis¿ was none other than Paris¿s high school sweetheart, Turner Pruitt. He had loved her when she was a confused seventeen year old and found he still loved her when he saw her gyrating her hips in the audience. Our protagonists wakes up the next morning to find themselves bona fide husband and wife. Turner is delighted but Paris is mortified. She packs up her bags and goes back to New York leaving strict instructions for Turner to annul the marriage. But when Turner chases his new bride to New York, the blushing bride is none too happy¿especially when nausea sets in and a pregnancy test comes out positive. Thus, all of Paris¿s tragic family history and anxieties come tumbling down like a ton of bricks. A patient and devoted Turner will have to show her that his unconditional love for her is here to stay. SHE WOKE UP MARRIED starts off with an insane story line of a marriage consumed under the influence of questionable liquids.Those expecting laugh out loud moments and wicked treats are in for a surprise as the story takes an abrupt turn with the serious issue of post-partum psychosis and its ramifications. The author¿s prose was a little `comedic contrived¿ as she tries too hard to be humorous and bleak all at the same time. The dialogue was wooden and repetitive, and movements of the characters too predictable leading to an ending that was just too darn easy. Author¿s efforts has provided us with a mildly amusing contemporary romance suitable for the 'I Don¿t Want To Be Intellectually Challenged By A Book¿ category.

    Not so much!

    This book was OK which is too bad since the premise was cute. The female character is self-involved and hard to relate to. You get tired of watching the male character fall on his sword to keep the peace. I'm not rushing out to find any more books by this author.

    Rough read

    It was too depressing through most of the book. Not worth your time. Not well written

    Skip it

    The sample certainly was intriguing, but not the entire book. Female lead is not very likable. The male lead is overly sensitive, not doing much more than hope the female lead heals from her childhood. The plot doesn't move much beyond half-hearted angst - and not very believable angst.

    Glad it was cheap!

    Hard to swallow - girl goes to Vegas for 30th birthday gets totally drunk runs into a minister who recognizes her from high school and agrees to have sex with her if only they marry first?? She gets pregnant that night with twins and he spends the rest of the book trying to convince someone who never wanted kids that she would be great! All of a sudden she agrees and it's happily ever after. Give me a break...

    So-so

    Book a little slow at times. The main character started to annoy me and the plot seemed to drag.
