Can one drunken night in Vegas and a pair of wedding rings lead to a happily ever after?
Love has never been a good bet for Chris, so going on a Vegas wedding trip for his friends is bittersweet. Especially when Ant, the last man to break his trust, is suddenly along for the ride. Which explains why Chris wakes up in his hotel room with the mother of all hangovers. Not so much why Ant is in his bed … or worse, wearing a matching wedding band.
Ant invited himself on a Vegas trip, gambling on a second chance with the man who got away. He never dreamt he’d be the one with a wedding ring on his finger, but if their predicament gets Chris talking to him again, he’ll make the most of it.
Between keeping their secret from friends and trying to figure out what really happened that first crazy night in Vegas, passions ignite. If they can hold on to their fresh start, maybe the Vegas motto doesn’t have to hold true: What happens in Vegas doesn’t have to stay there.

*I received the book in exchange for an honest review*
This is the third book in the My Anti-series and while it can be read as a standalone, maybe, I’d say that it’s best to read the other two before it. The characters from them do appear in the book and if you haven’t read the first two books, you miss a lot about their interactions.
It’s a … is it a fake-marriage if you get too drunk and marry in Vegas? Anyway, this is how they came to it. While they did have a kind of relationship before, it didn’t work out due to reasons explained in the book.
Anyway, the two characters are both awesome and flawed. Chris is afraid of relationships because of his past, and Ant has also been burnt before. Their relationship is so strained now because of the failure in the past, but I liked how Jamison dealt with it all. Even though they do not remember the night and all the occurrences, they do deal with their progress in relationship relatively slowly. I liked how they both eventually admit vulnerabilities they hide from the word and how they reconnected.
The ending was especially great, very humorous and also sappy and sweet. It’s a great HEA.
(And do read the other books. My Anti-Valentine has an asexual (or gray-ace) main character, and the second book deals with the two actual grooms in this book. My reviews of the previous two books can be found here).
DJ Jamison worked in newsrooms for more than 10 years, which helped tremendously when she began her series centered on The Ashe Sentinel, a fictional small-town newspaper in Kansas. She lives in the Midwest with her husband, two sons and three glow-in-the-dark fish.
