Being a Las Vegan myself, I just had to read Vegas Vacation. I don’t know about you, but I love reading books that are set in places I’m familiar with. I’m excited to say I can’t wait for book #2, Hawaiian Holiday, which takes place in Honolulu, Oahu, a neighboring island of the one on which I grew up.
Finn Walsh is a high school gym teacher that’s had his sights set on Meg for the past year, even though his prior attempt at asking her out was a flop. His luck is turning around with the upcoming Spring Break trip he and a group of fellow teachers have planned for Vegas. Finn and Meg have a mutual friend, Anne, who—with a little goading from Finn—convinces Meg to go on the trip with them.
Once in Vegas, there’s no denying their desire for each other and so the week-long fling begins with the understanding that nothing will continue between the two of them once the vacation is over. Of course, that’s easy to say in the beginning, but what drew me in was how their feelings for one another grew with ease.
Throw away any preconceived notions about Meg and Finn. She isn’t a boring history teacher; she is a confident, sexy, desirable woman that just happens to have a hang-up (and for good reason) about dating within the work place. And Finn—Ahh...Finn—He isn’t a womanizer. He’s a charmer, very easy to love right from the get-go. I actually loved how he was the one pursuing her, seriously wanting more than just this week with Meg, and foolishly believing the week would be enough.
It was very enjoyable following these two through the week, including attempts at hiding their arrangement from the other teachers. But some things can’t stay hidden—no matter how hard you try—whether it’s a secret past or blossoming love. What I enjoyed most was the fact that here we have two high school teachers that totally got schooled about the power of love.
To find out if their desire for each other was left behind in Sin City, get yourself a copy of Crystal Jordan’s Vegas Vacation to find out.

I think by now we all know that Crystal Jordan is a go to author for me. To date I haven't read anything by her that I didn't enjoy and Vegas Vacation is no different. I was more than excited when asked to read this book. I love the idea of a group of teachers cutting loose and having a good time on spring break. The fact that they are doing it in Vegas just added to the fun. All I could think of was drunk teachers running all over Vegas Hangover style. lol That's not exactly how it all goes down though. I can relate to Meg in a lot of ways. I am not a very outgoing person in real life. Online I can be KittyKelly and be crazy and wild but in person I tend to be a bit shy until I get to know you. I love that Meg's version of Vegas wasn't all about partying. I also love that Finn is determined to convince Meg that he's perfect for her. After watching a particularly difficult breakup between colleges at work she is more than gun-shy about work relationships, but Finn isn't going to let anything stop him. He is so persistent, yet patient and when they finally hit the sheets it is more than hot enough to set the hotel on fire. I really enjoyed getting to know these characters and I can't wait for the next in the series. I'm not 100% sure who gets the next book but I'm sure it will be just as much fun as this one.

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas ... but Finn Walsh wants Me
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas ... but Finn Walsh wants Meg Phillips for longer than a week long Spring Break fling.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
A group of teachers from Half Moon Bay Middle School are leaving California to spend a wild week in Las Vegas during Spring Break. Gym teacher Finn Walsh begged fellow Gym teacher Anne Kirby to get her best friend and History teacher Meg Phillips to agree to go with the group. After much cajoling by her group of best friends, Meg reluctantly agrees to go on the trip even though she prefers to spend the week at home reading.
Finn likes everything about Meg, and after she has already shot down his request for a date last year because she has a rule against dating a fellow teacher, Finn wants the chance to get to know Meg outside of work, spend time with her, and hopefully change her mind about dating him.
Meg is attracted to Finn, but because of horrible past family and relationship experiences that has made her commitment cautious, she has a personal rule against dating another teacher. Even though Finn makes her all hot and bothered he is strictly off limits.
With the rest of the group spending the week in Sin City doing the Teachers Gone Wild scene, Finn and Meg share a mutual attraction with so much sexual tension and chemistry between them that they agree to spend the week together. But Meg has one rule: they will share a no-strings fling week together and that's it. Finn agrees to the rule, but he has one week to get her to change her mind and give them a chance at something more permanent. Can Finn break through Meg's inhibitions and relationship fears and show her how good they are together? Or will their Vegas Vacation only be a one time fling?
Vegas Vacation is an entertaining story that mixes sweet romance with steamy sex that makes it one hell of a fun read. In the first book of the Destination: Desire Series, author Crystal Jordan weaves a sexy tale of romance and smoking hot sex written in the third person narrative that follows Meg and Finn's journey of intimately discovering each other in Las Vegas during Spring Break.
The author effortlessly transports her readers to Sin City with the quirky group of middle school teachers as they get their groove on during their trip. The description of the various landmarks in Las Vegas is spot on, you feel like you are there right in the middle of the glitter and action that makes up this famous gaming town. While Meg and Finn's week of romance is the main focus of the story, the author also provides a lot of humor and fun from the rest of the group as they enjoy their trip.
Mixed with humor, romance and emotional drama, the reader watches as Meg and Finn's romance develops as they deal with real life issues and fears mixed with delicious descriptions of their sexual attraction and sizzling chemistry. The balance between their touching fun times spent together mixed with their erotic sex scenes is just plain hot, hot, hot. While I love the smoking hot sex scenes, I really appreciated Finn and Meg's back stories as well as the fun touristy things that they did in Las Vegas that helped them develop their relationship. The author does a great job of letting the readers really get to know Meg and Finn, from their past history, to their personalities and emotions, to their undeniable attraction for each other. While I appreciated Meg's character and the inner turmoil of maintaining her personal rule over letting go and starting a relationship with Finn, it was Finn that stole my heart. This sweet sexy man is every woman's fantasy man, he is a man that is a definite keeper because of his desire to have a real relationship with Meg, not just a casual sexual fling. Even as Meg protects her heart and tries to hold back her feelings for Finn, it takes more than just that one week for her to consider all that Finn has to offer. This my friends is a story that is very sigh worthy.
Vegas Vacation is a sweet and steamy romance story that will simply curl your toes and leave a smile on your face!
Vegas Vacation is the first book in the Destination: Desire Series.
