Savanna Morgan just wanted a way out of an engagement to a man she didn't love. Marrying Brodie seemed liked the perfect answer at the time. Less perfect the next morning when she finds herself disowned by her father and flat broke. Now she must make it through the weekend. Monday they can get it all annulled and forget it ever happened.
The real problem may be keeping their hands off each other until then.

I loved every second of this book. Brodie and Savanna, complete strangers, wake up next to each other one morning in Vegas married. Their plan is to get an annulment. But, sometimes things don't go as planned. Amie Louellen does an excellent job creating the characters in the story. She is also an expert in the romance department. The book is loaded with sweet, sexy scenes. I could not put the book down until I finished it. I plan on reading any book Amie Louellen writes in the future.Was this review helpful?

Review by JoAnne:
What a wonderful story from start to finish. I loved every minute and couldn't wait to find out the next adventure Brodie and his "Sunshine" Savanna got into. Lots of romance, some laughter and the feeling of friendship and family throughout. As upstanding as Brodie was I was surprised that he would enter into a marriage that he couldn't even remember taking place. It was fun to see how his and Savanna's lust grew to be love even though they fought it at every turn. Throw in a few meddlers and it made the story a little more interesting. I haven't read any other books by Amie Louellen but you can be sure I will in the future.
Favorite Quote: "Brodie is a family man," Savanna said. "Maybe not in the way you're thinking. So he doesn't have a wife or three kids he's trying to raise. But he's got a grandmother that's a pistol."... "He's got an aunt he looks after. Did you know he dropped out of school just to care for them after his grandfather died? Of course not. It's something Brodie's not very proud of. But you know what. I am. I'm proud of him. And I'm proud that even for a brief time I got to call him my husband."

Married? Savanna was married, and she doesn't even know the man's first name. Or last name, for that matter. In fact, she doesn't recall the wedding! Yet she wakes up in bed in the morning with this man next to her. Okay, what a night. Now it's time to regroup and remember. It takes a reminder from the man who performed the wedding ceremony for it to sink in for both Savanna and Brodie.
So things are a mess and the two are hungover. And sure enough, they are married. Oh boy. Brodie has an important meeting he can't miss. Savanna thinks she can fix this...until she's disinherited! Things keep getting worse as the day goes on. And now, Savanna and Brodie are caught up in a charade and lie that they must keep up for a few days. What's a few days, right? After the weekend, they can get an annullment and get on with their lives. If only it were that easy. What started out as a mistake turns into something more emotional...
I'll admit I didn't like Savanna at first. She's spoiled, hasn't worked a day in her life, and could be considered a Pampered Princess. The kind who can just run to Daddy and he will fix everything for her. Not this time, though, and Savanna gets a taste of having to deal with life on her own. But further into the story, the author sheds some light on the reasons for Savanna's actions and attitudes, and she goes through a major change. More and more into the story, Savanna redeems herself, becoming more grown up and responsible, and definitely likable.
I loved Brodie from the start. His family -- Nan and Blair -- are hilarious and their presence in the story gave me plenty of laughs and heartwarming feelings. This deliciously funny and touching story kept me up long into the night. I wanted to devour every last page but at the same time I didn't want the story to end, either. I fell in love with the dynamic characters and the fun plot. Ms. Louellen's sparkling debut is one to remember.
If you love a tender romance, characters that make you laugh and cry, and an all around good feeling, then get ready to fall in love with Brodie's Bride. And Brodie, too.
