Overview

IT HAPPENED IN VEGAS. I can't be held responsible. Things that happen there are supposed to stay there, right? Right? Yeeeah. Not so much.

Andie's just days away from tying the knot, but there's just ooooone little glitch. Apparently, she's already married. Or someone with her name is married to a guy out in Oregon of all places, and the courthouse won't issue her a marriage license until it's all cleared up. Tripping her way through cow pies and country songs to meet up with a man who gets around places on horseback is her very last idea of how to have a good time, but if she's going to get married, make partner at the firm, and have two point five kids before she's thirty-five, she needs to get to the bottom of this snafu and fix it quick ... before her fiance finds out and everything she's been working toward goes up in flames.

    Excellent read!

    This is such an amazing novel! The writing is hilarious and well done. The love story and characters have depth and charm that is lacking in so many romance novels these days. I read this 300+ page book in just a few hours because I could not put it down. A definite must read for fans of romance and love!

    A Wonderful Book

    I loved this book. I am impressed by the writing and the story line. I would like to read more of Andie and Mack's story. The ending was great and I'm not sure that she would be able to extend the story but I just fell in love with everyone in the book. This is my first Elle Casey book but I plan to read more of her books.

    What a love story! Mac and Andie meet in Vegas at the blackjack

    What a love story! Mac and Andie meet in Vegas at the blackjack table. Love at first sight? Who knows but a one-night-stand roars into a slow burn. I enjoyed reading this book so much, I read it in one sitting and did not go to bed until 3AM this morning. It is one of those books you cannot put down. Mac is sexy! Like an old song ... a man with an easy touch; knows when to go slow and when to move up the pace!

    OH MY FREAKIN WOW!!!

    I loved, loved, loved this book. The story line is excellent. I fell head over heels in lust for Mack. He sounds absolutely perfect. I want one. Andie and her girlfriends are hilarious. I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants. Lol. At times I cried for Andie and her tomented soul wanting so bad to be and feel loved but not believing it when it's right in front of her. And for Mack for finding someone to love with his whole heart so hard but not sure it's gonna be returned. The chemistry sexual and otherwise between Andie & Mack is amazing. My only regret with book is I didn't want it to end. I would have liked there to have been a sequel or more to their life together. I highly recomend this book to everyone. This is my first book by Elle but it definitely won't be my last. Thank you Elle for an amazingly heartwarming love story. And did I mention the sex is off the charts HOT! Lol.

    Just OK

    I had high expectations about this book based on the great reviews, but it ended up being quite mediocre. Some reviews mentioned it is hillarious, but I found the humor to be too forced and on your face rather than 'smart funny'. The story is interesting and had potential but I could not connect with the heroine. She and her friends behaved and talked like sorority girls and never acted like the professional, emancipated women they were suposed to be. To make it worse, she did not have a backbone with the a**holes that she dated, allowing them to walk all over her. And the only caring, respectful man she meets is the hero of the book and she uses any excuse to dismiss him and her feelings for him. What can I say, I'd rather read about a more inspiring female character. Not worth the money.

    A surprising find

    I wasn't expecting much from this book, but I liked the overview and decided to give it a chance. I was very pleasantly surprised and enjoyed Casey's pace and style of writing and the character dynamics. It had humor, hormones, and a little heartache!

    Great book!!

    This is one of the best books I have read in a while. It took me less than 2 days to read the entire thing because I couldn't put it down. I actually laughed out loud when reading the part of Andi in the casino (my husband thought I was crazy!!) I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a great love story!

    I liked this story OK, but nearly as much as I thought I would. In the beginning of the book, I thought I was going to like Andie. She seems fun. She opens the book with "They call me the party girl". But I lost all respect for her because she has no self worth. She was going to marry someone strictly to mark it off a list by a certain time in her life. Who does that? And she lets her boyfriends treat her like absolute crap...alienating her from her friends. This is not healthy. I just didn't like her and didn't buy her as an attorney.

    Mack was the hot cowboy, and I did buy that. I didn't buy that he fell in love with Andie after one night, though.

    Overall, this was an OK, light, fun read.

    Andie's a tough lawyer who doesn't take no for an answer in the courtroom. She's smart and knows exactly what she wants out of life. Growing up she was in a bad situation and had no control over her life nor her destiny and so she came up with the "life plan". A plan that would allow her to gain her freedom and happiness and she's followed that plan to the letter her whole adult life. It got her through college and is on the way to making her a junior partner at her law firm. Her plan includes her career an eventual husband and 2.5 kids by the time she's thirty five. There's only one problem, her boyfriend and hopeful future husband just broke up with her and she has to go to Las Vegas for a bachelorette party for her friend who is getting married so even though her life plan doesn't call for a girls night out she reluctantly gives in. While in Vegas she ends up drinking way too much and meeting the sexiest cowboy she's ever seen in her life (heck, the sexiest man she's ever seen in her life) Her life plan doesn't have any contingency plans for Las Vegas or Mack but what can one night hurt? Surely she's allowed a one night stand just this once. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas or so she thinks. Two years later she's back on plan, a Jr. partner and is about to get married, there's only one little problem. Apparently she's already married to a cowboy named Mack and she has to get him to sign the divorce papers before anyone finds out about it and her life plan goes down the drain.




    I'm a huge fan of Elle Casey. She's by far my favorite author and has proven her skill with Young adult, paranormal, adventure and dystopian novels. I've never read a romance novel from her and wasn't sure what to expect even though I knew I was bound to love the characters and I was right, I did love the characters but I also found myself turning the pages just as rapidly as I have all her other books. I'm a guy and don't read a lot of romance books, although I've been getting out of my comfort zone and reading different genres and I admire Elle Casey for leaving her comfort zone behind too. Shine Not Burn is just as good if not better than anything she's written before. I'm not a huge fan of reading sex scenes but then again I don't read a lot of steamy books so maybe I'm wrong. Regardless I had a blast with this book. The sex wasn't just thrown in for filler or anything like that, it was there to enhance the story and it did very much so. I've always wondered why women enjoy reading romance books and I get it now. Once again I found myself enjoying every single page, whether it was a steamy scene or a horseback ride with a beautiful backdrop of scenery. I look forward to reading more New Adult Romance books by Elle Casey and can't wait to see what she has in store for us next. If you love to read then you're bound to love this book, it doesn't matter whether you're 20 or 40, a man or a woman, Shine Not Burn manages to transcend both gender and age (18 and over that is) and will deftly strike you straight in the heart much like an arrow shot from Cupid himself.
