I was completely won over by Cindi Myers’ The Wedding Gamble. There are multiple tales of last second Vegas nuptials to complete strangers, but I have never read one quite like this. It was a story I HAD to read in one sitting to find out what happened.
Laura Nichols is “having the time of her life!” in Vegas for her little sister’s bachelorette party. No wait, that’s not right. She isn’t even close to having the kind of Vegas fun that Vegas always promises. That is, until she stumbles upon David Abruzzo who asks her for a favor. It isn’t until the morning after that she realizes that favor was marriage. David Abruzzo is undercover….well, at least he was, but then two heavy hitters for the Zacolli crime family find David’s sudden appearance in Vegas to be highly suspicious. Of course, David was there to get married…without a bride. Laura and David find themselves in a life or death situation in which them playing their parts of happy-in-love newlyweds is absolutely crucial. But when does it turn from acting into the real thing?
Laura was a character that I simply loved and connected with. She was the good girl, who always did the right thing, completely selfless and willing to help any and everyone she came in contact with. But Laura needed a little wild in her life and that is exactly what she got with David.
David had me hook-line-and-sinker right from the beginning. It really isn’t fair to other men who may be compared to him. He is the good guy, on the right side of the law, but has a certain badass-ness about him that makes him devilishly charming.
Cindi’s writing is one-of-a-kind that had me riveted the entire time. I loved the humor, the danger, the romance, and the heat that steams off the pages.
A must read for those who like romance and thrill or who just like a really good book ¿

With romance, sexiness, completely loveable characters and a great (albeit unlikely) storyline, this book has it all. A fabulous read from start to finish, I loved every page.
Laura Nichol’s, a pre-school teacher, is in Las Vegas for her ‘perfect’ sister’s hen party. She’s sweet, sensible and dependable and her family expect her to put herself out for them. David Arbruzzo, an unbelievably sexy undercover FBI agent is witty, kind and protective and needs to prove to the mob he’s in Vegas getting married… so he picks the one girl least likely to embark on a quickie Vegas wedding (although if I was approached in Vegas by him I would marry him!) There was nothing not to love about the man.
The chemistry between them was perfect and their ‘marriage’ was dangerous and exciting, tender and passionate with moments that were heartwarming and others that tugged on the heartstrings. Their bedroom activities were hot and sexy and the situations Laura finds herself in generate moments that have you holding your breath in anticipation. I laughed, I swooned and I sighed those appreciative 'sighs' that we romantic women are prone. And I loved the fact that Laura doesn’t have the ‘perfect’ figure. It made her realistic and even more loveable.
The only thing I felt was missing was an epilogue, but that doesn’t detract from a fabulous book that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and is one I will be reading again.
I received this book as an ARC from the publisher for an honest and unbiased opinion.
