Review: What Happens In Vegas (Girls Weekend Away) by Shana Gray

What Happens In Vegas (Girls Weekend Away)
In the first warm, funny and romantic novel in the Girls Weekend Away series, four best friends embark on the ultimate girls' getaway filled with hijinks and a sprinkling of romance. For any fan of Bridesmaids and Sex and the City and readers of Jo Watson, Lauren Layne, Joanna Bolouri and Cate Woods.
When the cop...
Tough-as-nails detective Bonni Connolly is on a girls' Vegas getaway with her college friends, when she hits the jackpot. Taking advantage of her gift from Lady Luck, Bonni upgrades their trip for a once-in-a-lifetime experience in luxury and glamour. Seizing the opportunity to break out from her normal (formal) cop style, she splurges on a slinky designer dress and a VIP booth in an exclusive club. That's when she sees him, and Bonni decides there's another once-in-a-lifetime thing she wants to have: a vacation fling.
Meets the gambler...
Professional poker player Quinn Bryant is in town for one of the largest tournaments of the year and (as always) he plans to win. Determined to start off his vacation by getting lucky, he heads to his favorite club, where he spots Bonni across the dance floor. Fortune smiles on him when Bonni picks up the cards he puts down. However, what starts as a Vegas hook-up soon turns into something more, as Bonni learns to see the man behind the poker face.
The stakes have never been higher.
Even though Bonni's trip has an end date and there is another tournament calling Quinn's name, their strong connection overcomes their difference and they start to wonder if what happens in Vegas doesn't have to stay there.
Look for the next escapist Girls Weekend Away novel, coming soon!

It was a very fun and quick read. Story revolved around friends who go for a weekend in Vegas. All girl weekend soon becomes something more for Bonni when a handsome gambler sets his eyes on her. Quinn is in Vegas for gambling tournaments, but as soon as he sees Bonni dancing he knows that she is special. Soon they find themselves drawn to each other. What was supposed to be a weekend to unwind for Bonni, and that of gambling for Quinn, becomes so much more for both of them. But they can't work, a cop and a professional gambler isn't an ideal combination. Plus they're in Vegas only for limited time. However, what about after Vegas? Must they leave what happened there behind? Will they even be able to do that? Read the book to find out. ;)

I really enjoyed it, story is simple, well-written and characters are great. However, there were a few boring stretched out parts when it comes to the four friends. Although, not all bad, as I did enjoy their girly talk, all in all it's worth the read.

P.S. I received a complimentary copy of this book via NetGalley.
