Blog tour and giveaway - One Wild Night (Forever Wild #1) by Magan Vernon


One Wild Night Can Change Everything

Valerie Wilder doesnt do serious relationships. She also doesnt usually wake up in Vegas next to a male stripper

A male stripper who happens to be her new husband.

A quickie divorce seems like the answer, but the Nevada legal system doesnt think so.  When her new husband suggests flying back to Chicago with Valerie she accepts, wondering if one night in Vegas could turn into something much more.

Review by Janeane - ARC received for honest review

This is the first part of the serialised series Forever Wild.  There will be 6 parts to this series, with a new part released every 3 weeks.

Valerie Wilder is a wild child (though we don't see too much of this at first).  A bit on the "thick" side, she realises that she is never going to be the girl guys get serious about, she is the good time girl but that's all she'll ever be.

Or is it?

The guy ushered us to the side of the stage while the lights dimmed and the music picked up. I recognized the familiar dum-de-de-dum, de-de-dum-de-de-dum, de-daa-daaaaaa from the beginning of Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy.

I couldnt help but laugh at the gimmickiness of it all, but my laughter quickly stopped when the song got going and out from the corner of the stage, sauntered a guy wearing a black cowboy  hat, a red plaid pearl-snap shirt, and some well-worn jeans. When he looked up, I could see the wide white smile on his face and my knees locked at the sight of him.

He threw his hat into the crowd and then as soon as lyrics to the song started, he ripped open his shirt and if I had to judge the hardest abs in Vegas, this guy would not only have that, but the hardest abs Id ever seen. He was hot. Not just skanky, male stripper hot, but like the kind of guy I only saw after our graphics department airbrushed him. I was eager to get my hands on those abs as part of my judging duties.

The cougars screamed as he grapevined his way across the stage. But even as he worked the room, it felt like his eyes never left mine. His big, irresistible green eyes. As the chorus picked up he undid his John Deere belt buckle and dropped his jeans, kicking them to a screaming lady in a mini dress. That left him in nothing but a pair of black briefs.

He smiled right in my direction before he circled his hips and flashed his flawless ass which only made the crowd go crazier. Slowly he pulled them back up and threw a wink in my direction before he danced back over to the other side of the stage. My entire face felt like it was on fire and so did the rest of my body.

After justing the Vegas Rock Hard Abs competition, things get a little bit blurry.  The next morning she wakes up with the winner Wes in her bed - and he's now her husband.

I am still not sure about Wes.  What are his intentions now that Val isn't what he thought she was?  Can two lonely people make something of it when they are thrown together, or can the circumstances of how they met be too much to overcome.
I guess for that we will have to wait and see.
This story sucked me in from the beginning.  The concept of the story is nothing new - average girl meets hot guy, she doesn't feel she deserves him blah blah, but Ms Vernon wrote it so as I didn't feel all ho hum here we go again.
"Wild Wes" you still have to prove yourself to me, and I am hoping you do yourself justice.
