ok it was cute, but could have done with someediting and there were a few points where things were kind of abrupt like denise s change of heart near the end , but pretty decent f f adult romance.Rep lesbian mcs I had to suffer through the audio version of this book The one narrator, Emily Beresford, is just not right for romance novels I ve commented on this before with another book she did, Never Just Friends She would be better suited for voicing non romantic comedy Or auctions Or being some sort of announcer I m fairly certain that I would have rated this book higher had it not been for the audio.This book had a funny if not unbelievable premise of getting pissed drunk and married in Las Veg I had to suffer through the audio version of this book The one narrator, Emily Beresford, is just not right for romance novels I ve commented on this before with another book she did, Never Just Friends She would be better suited for voicing non romantic comedy Or auctions Or being some sort of announcer I m fairly certain that I would have rated this book higher had it not been for the audio.This book had a funny if not unbelievable premise of getting pissed drunk and married in Las Vegas Ruby is a d list actress on a terrible T.V show that posts about the wedding on instagram That is sure to damage Ruby s reputation and kill her shot at this movie she is up for So her mother agent cooks up a scheme that would have Ruby stay married to Emily The British chick she fell for in Vegas in order to control the narrative So these two messy ladies fake their marriage all the while trying to deny their real feelings for one another This was entertaining and sometimes funny The back and forth and miscommunication of it all was a little annoying, though I literally was screaming in my car to JUST TELL HER FOR GOD S SAKE To both of the them Multiple times The ending was super rom com cheesy And I still liked it.I recommend the BOOK Not the audio DEFINITELY not the audio to those who like to rom coms, angst, fake relationships, celebrity relationships, and miscommunication @Book õ Just Married? ⚛ When uptight British bookshop owner Emily Bartlett goes to Las Vegas to get over a humiliating breakup, she s expecting to make a few mistakes But when she meets Ruby Knight, a pessimistic American C list TV actress with designs on a movie career, she makes a whopper The pair get so incredibly drunk together that they end up getting accidently married In the cold light of day, both women are shocked to find themselves wedded to a virtual stranger But maybe it s not such a big mistake Could Ruby s marriage to Emily help boost her profile and get her the biggest role of her life, earning Emily a big payday in the process Only if they can make it seem like they re really in love And only if they can navigate the treacherous LA movie scene without tripping themselves up and giving the game away Or worse, getting carried away with their fake relationship But what if they do let themselves feel something Could they fall in love Or are they Just Married A witty romantic comedy, Just Married is the latest book from Natasha West, the internationally bestselling author of By Any Other Name and The Plus One Book 11 that I ve read by this author and unfortunately it didn t meet my expectations The blurb had me immediately intrigued because the combination of a drunken Vegas wedding and a fauxmance in one sounded amazing.To be fair, the book started off great and it completely had my attention The pacing was a little fast though but given the length of the book that was to be expected I liked the main characters well enough, even though I wanted to whack them upside the head every now and then for Book 11 that I ve read by this author and unfortunately it didn t meet my expectations The blurb had me immediately intrigued because the combination of a drunken Vegas wedding and a fauxmance in one sounded amazing.To be fair, the book started off great and it completely had my attention The pacing was a little fast though but given the length of the book that was to be expected I liked the main characters well enough, even though I wanted to whack them upside the head every now and then for either being a jerkRubyor being a spineless pushoverEmily Ruby.The part that ruined this book for me was caused mainly by a secondary character This person s manipulative behavior and abrasive personality was too dramatized and so very over the top that I had a hard time not getting angry for real The other minor part that had me baffled was how two grown women both allowed someone to treat them like unruly children, scolding and all It really started to tick me off after a while Though there were a few moments that made me laugh, I can t call this a comedy or label it as humorous Romance fans may swoon however over the very cheesy ending Read this book at your own risk since you may feel like punching something or someone during certain moments.Overall 3,25 rating This was a fun, quick read featuring a fake relationship, which is one of my favorite tropes. I went on strike with this author because she wasn t coming out with Book 3 of the Plus One Trilogy quick enough for me But I was in the mood for anything not on my to do list, sampled various KU books, ejected out of many, tried again until I settled in with this one After a few chapters, it became clear to me that I ve only been punishing myself in not reading anyNatasha West books because

was a solid read on Kindle unlimited and I would recommend it on there, but I would not recommend it to buy The interactions between the two main characters was good but not great, and I am not sure I could believe how they fell for each other It was a little too cheesy for my taste I ve read a handful of Natasha West s books and I think this is my least favorite among them She s a pretty solid

of Natasha West s books and I think this is my least favorite among them She s a pretty solid writer if you re looking for an f f romance with some humor and quirk And her Julia Hawke series is pretty sophisticated and on my favorites list caveat about the first book not being so great while the 2nd and 3rd are really good Just Married gives us a Hollywood faux mance that requires some suspension of disbelief There are some interesting ideas in this one but we have a lot of books in lesfic that hit these Hollywood and fake romance tropes and this one doesn t really stand up to them It s an okay read, on the whole.Mainly, my biggest peeve with the actual writing is that it s the type of conflict that could be resolved if the leads were honest with each other and just had conversations Instead, the entire premise hinges on their misunderstandings Blech.If I read the story in its words I give it about a 3 If I listen to the story, my rating actually drops.This is an audiobook on Scribd and that s how I consumed it We have a British lead and an American one but the narrator is British which means we re getting a Brit doing an American accent Maybe others won t be bothered by it but I listen to a lot of BBC radio dramas and whenever they need to do an American accent it s really grating to my ears They over emphasize consonants, especially R sounds, and over act, stripping an American accent of nuance I m sure Brits have similar complaints when Americans try to be English.But, unfortunately, this audiobook was no different in the delivery of the lines It wasn t fun to listen to and the emphasis of expression when using the American accent made a character even crossing a room sound overly dramatic Whenever the narrators would slip into the British character, though, it was muchnatural and a better experience.I ll go with an overall 2.75 on this one While it is true that miscommunication lack of communication communication mistakes are a tried and true

around corner with, like, a gleam of sparkle in his eye, Romeo stabs self in heart, drops dead Juliet gasps and pulls air into lungs, wiggles, thinks to herself, out loud since this is a play Why am I all sticky What s this weight upon my breasts NOOO My beloved has stabbed himself I cannot bear to live grabs knife, plunges into kidney, screams in pain gasps, pulls out dagger, tries again, plunges into lung, lung begins to collapse, gasps out why is it so hard to join my beloved stabs self in heart, dies evil monk dude shakes head, mutters to himself if only they d talked to each other, eh Stupid barely teenagers Walks away drinking blood, spots the families, makes a speech about see, this is your fault Do you wish a dagger to take your lives receives wailing, but no one takes him up on the daggers.Where was I Oh, right, communication issues are a tried and true addition to many a genre Sometimes to the point of excess, like, say, in lesbian fiction Well this book here is both a romance and a comedy so there s something like a double helping of miscommunication going on here with, in addition with, like, that evil monk dude above, an evil mother type who adds a layer of disinformation to the mixRight But rather than talk about it, you just started looking for someone else There s a ton of genuine humor in the book mostly in the beginning area, but some filtering through the rest The kind that makes even me to laugh I like laughing so don t read that even me too hard There s also a ton of errors throughout And I m not talking about the number of times the American characters talked about sat on things The word sitting is apparently banned in the British Isles, but I ve already wasted plenty of words about that issue in other reviews though I stress again that it is the American characters in addition to the British using this sat word weirdly No, the errors are the other stuff Like that time when the chapter was focused on Emily there s a certain amount of head swapping, but it s mostly between Emily and Ruby, and there tended to be breaks between the swaps when suddenly Emily is running somewhere, the name given for the person is Ruby and yes it is obviously still Emily s chapter , when the story includes the bit about how she presumably Ruby, but no, it s Emily, Ruby was just inserted incorrectly really needs to talk to Ruby wow, good thing I knew this was really Emily s chapter or that d been confusing Ruby really needed to talk to Ruby.Oh, right, and as mentioned, there s an evil mom in the book This is one of those kinda annoying to me books that involve women who are old enough to control their own lives both characters are around 27, 28 , but who allow themselves to be dominated by an older woman Denise being the older woman s name the mother of Ruby Knight, actress Denise sacrificed herself to get Ruby s dream to come to be real acting Somewhere along the way apparently not from beginning she also became Ruby s manager The evil micro managing bitchy all controlling type of manager Presumably there s some backstory for Emily as well, based on hints dropped here and there, but she s mostly managed by Denise when she comes under her spell the hints involving the kind of praise that undermines instead of uplifts, and working for her brother instead of with him in running the family bookstore.I got away from myself and the little helpful tidbits are so far down in the review, they probably will get lost but this is a lesbian lesbian book which is occasionally important to note involving two late twenties women from different circumstances One, as the book description puts her, is a C list actress who, I do not recall if this is in there as well, is an American with a bitchy manager who is also her mother while the other is a bookstore employee from Britain, specifically Oxford.The book opens with Emily getting dumped, with one of the comments being that s she s too unspontaneous or however that was worded And then Emily goes back to their place to toss all of Katie s things into the yard not really, but yes Katie did ask Emily to pack up her things for her, she s that type of bitch Somewhere along the way, though Emily finds herself cramped on a transatlantic flight to Las Vegas A place that she d never particularly wished to go, but a couple of coin flips finds her heading there Meanwhile and now I m picturing Stephen Colbert being a little too aroused excited whatever when he says Meanwhile for his Meanwhile segment seriously, what s up with his orgasmic response to the segment opening credits , another woman is in a different kind of argument this one with her mother This being Ruby and Denise At some point Ruby darts out, gets in her car, and heads for homesomehow ending on the on ramp to Vegas.The two lead characters meet Ruby immediately erupts at Emily because she s full of herself and assumes Emily is some kind of fan who wants a video or something Things move from there and they have great fun together to the point of drunkenness.Where upon the story turns in another common trope, though from a direction I m not sure I ve actually seen before It s the pretend relationship for career gain trope Actually, while the for career gain is something of a sub trope of pretend relationship , I was goingfor the pretend relationship part Why are these two random strangers suddenly in a pretend relationship Because, apparently, they got married during their drunken night of fun, they even have a certificate to prove it One thing leads to another, bitch mom is initially annoyed, thennot happy, but something like that, because there s positive viral internet trending for her client daughter based on this marriage She initially wants to make use of this romance, but learns the two women didn t actually know each other before yesterday night, so instead wants to make this be a pretend romance at least until x for career gain daughter s career gain Fun, funny, incredibly short book My third, I think, work by this author I ve read I seem to alternate between 2 or 4 ratings, and here we seem to have landed on Oh god, did you kill her Phil asked What No Because it s always the quiet ones I didn t kill her It s the total opposite, actually Phil went quiet for a second and then asked, You gave birth to her Rating 3.88March
