Waking Up married- Mira Kelly- Review


Book: Waking Up Married
Author: Mira Lyn Kelly
Genre: Romance; Women's Fiction

Book synopsis:
Her first thought: "Who are you?"
It's the morning after her cousin's bachelorette party in Vegas and Megan Scott wakes up with the mother of all hangovers. Even worse, she's in a stranger's penthouse having woken up with something else as well - a funny, arrogant, sexy...husband!

Up until now, finding even a boyfriend had seemed impossible - been there, got the broken heart, sworn off men for good. Then a few martinis with Carter...no, Connor Reed and she's gone from first meet to marriage in one night!

Megan wants a lawyer. But Connor's shocking bombshell?

"I don't want a divorce."

Book Review: 
I have read a few waking up married books, and this is my second favorite one, there are only two as of right now. 
We have great characters, that seem so level headed but as you watch them throughout the story they appear to be anything but. Our main characters both have life plans, but they seem to fit so perfectly together. Their plans could merge into one, fit like a jigsaw puzzle. But like all great things, there are obstacles. 
There's passion denied, love that shouldn't be possible, and enough drama to go around. Though its just a simple waking up married book, I had a very hard putting it down. The author does an amazing job of making the reader connects to the characters without our knowing, making us yearn to find out what unfurls next. I feel like the characters could have been developed more, so we could get to know them more and not the sharada they put up for one another. 

Favorite quotes:

"He was a stranger. Only, this stranger was looking into her eyes as if he knew exactly who she was."

"'Oh my God I love you,' she gasped blinking back tears.
The delivery guy nodded, 'I get that a lot actually.'"

"'Always with the jokes.'
'Im a guy. That's how it works. Stop by after knitting club some time and ill explain.'
Jeff leg out an amused snort. 'Just for that I'm learning. And someone's going to have a very special Christmas coming up.'"

"People see what they want to and make assumptions based on what they expect."

All in All:
This was a good book. I feel like there were things missing, but it was good none the less.
