SHINE NOT BURN really reminded me of Sweet Home
Alabama and who
doesn't love that movie? Andie Marks has known her
life plan since she was five
years old. Partner by the time she turns a
certain age, and then married, kids, the white picket
fence, a perfect life.
Or at least she thinks that is the way it is going to go.
One of her best
friends is getting married, and they convince her they need
a girls' only weekend
in Las Vegas. Well, here is where the trouble begins for
meets a delicious cowboy named Mack at the blackjack table,
and her life is
never going to be the same; she just doesn't know it yet.
She wakes up
the next day and can't remember anything that happened the
except she thinks she had a one night stand.
Fast forward two years later and Andie herself is getting
married. A week
before the big day she gets a call from the licensing
bureau. They ask her when her
divorce was final! What? She has never
been married before and as she tries to tell the clerk this
bits and pieces of
that fateful night come back to haunt her. SHINE NOT BURN

prepared to laugh out loud, snort, and giggle to the point

is in the room they are going to give you some very funny
I truly love SHINE NOT BURN. The situations Andie found

made me feel like I
was right there with Andie, all the while trying not to let
her see the smirk on
my face about what was happening. I love when Andie and
together. They are perfect together, and their bantering
is truly hysterical.
SHINE NOT BURN is sexy, light-hearted, laugh-out-loud
funny, and totally
swoon worthy. I was giggling and snorting so much that I
had tears in my
eyes. I can't wait to continue this series and read more
by Elle Casey.
Andie Marks, known as “Party Girl” in her college days, is now
a whip-smart lawyer on the fast track to success. Determined
to move on from a bad break-up, she joins her girlfriends for
a wild bachelorette weekend in Las Vegas, promising to let her
hair down just this once.
Vegas is a blur of cocktails and blackjack, and in the middle
of it all she meets Mack, a real-life cowboy with a winning
hand and an irresistible body. They get lucky in the casino
and luckier back at the hotel, a hot night of passion that was
definitely not part of Andie’s life plan.
By dawn Mack is gone and all she has to remember their one-
