Title: Wife for the
Weekend (Sugar City #3) by Ophelia London
Age group: Adult
Genre: Sweet Romance
Publisher: Entangled
Scheduled to release: March 14, 2016


When bad weather closes the airport, free-spirited Jules Bloom finds herself stuck with the admittedly hot but total suit Dexter Elliott. One night and one large pitcher of “Vegas Sunrise” later, Jules wakes up in a hotel bed with a vicious hangover…wearing nothing but a wedding ring.

Determined not to ruin his brother’s wedding, Dexter strikes a deal with the frustratingly gorgeous Jules to continue their quickie marriage through the weekend. Only she keeps getting under his skin in unexpected ways.

Jules has her own reasons for staying married to Dex but they seem less important with each exaggerated touch and staged kiss. But one marriage, one major secret, and two complete opposites don’t add up to a happily ever after…

Book 3 in the Sugar City series, can be read as a stand alone.
Wife for the Weekend is a sweet opposites attract story with more than a few laugh out loud moments. (When Juliet takes Dex’s suggestion to divert overly inquisitive people’s attention at a party by being “inappropriately personal” a little too far had more than a few LOL moments in it alone!) I think this one’s my favorite of the series so far 🙂

Jules and Dex seem at first to be the last couple that should ever end up together, but as the book–and their real-fake marriage–continues, they slowly begin to have a positive influence on each other, and it’s soon clear to everyone (but them, of course!) that they should be together for good. I loved that they each began to have quick (but hot! in a safe, Bliss way, of course) flashes of their wedding night as the story went on…hopefully it will come back to both of them in its entirety eventually, because it seems just to fantastic to be forgotten for good. Dex’s family dynamic was a lot of fun to watch too; I vote that more of his unattached siblings will get their own stories just so we don’t have to say goodbye anytime soon 🙂

I have to admit, though, that I was a teensy bit concerned that Ms. London wouldn’t be able to pull off a convincing HEA for these two–things got to be pretty shaky there for a while–but in the end it was all good, and there were warm fuzzy feelings all around.

Wife for the Weekend worked well as a standalone; allusions were made to book two ( Kissing Her Crush ) since Luke is Dex’s older brother, but you don’t have to have already read that one to enjoy Wife.

Rating: 4 stars / B+

I received a complementary copy in exchange for an honest review.
