What happens in Vegas . . . doesn’t always stay there! Bridesmaids meets The Hangover in the laugh-out-loud rom-com of the year from J.F. Murray, author of Fling.

Kate is the ultimate planner. She has her happily-ever-after all plotted out, starting with her dream wedding to successful dental surgeon, Norman, and an iconic Las Vegas hen party with her three best girlfriends. Even running into her DJ ex, Trevor Rush, the man who broke her heart nine years ago, won’t ruin Kate’s vision for the perfect girls’ trip.

But when an alcohol-fuelled night out leaves Kate and Trevor accidentally hitched, her plans are officially out the window. To make matters worse, Trevor has decided he wants Kate back, and won’t sign the annulment papers until she agrees to go on three last dates with him.

With her fairy tale wedding just days away, Kate is determined to fight her growing feelings for Trevor. But in the scorching heat of Sin City, is it time for her to tear up the rule book, and finally take a gamble on love?

Marry in haste, repent at leisure, is the exact opposite of Hitched by J. F. Murray
Have I mentioned that I loved reading this book? If not then I have been remiss.

It's a romantic comedy featuring a bachelorette party in Vegas that goes wrong. And the bride ends up marrying her first love instead of her fiancé. Can she get divorced in a week! Right the wrong and marry her actual groom to be? Or will she find out that her heart and alcohol consumption chose well?

Hitched is laugh out loud fun, that is no exaggeration. Be careful where you are reading in case you disturb the peace with your frequent howls of laughter. Characters are great, the dialogue is sharp, witty and so, so funny.

Whilst there might be stereotypical characters and plot devices here and there - meddlesome mum, ridiculous fiancé, and crack team of friends (all different and interesting), it all plays out well. Despite a fiancé whose wrong in so many ways. It's a romance after all. It might take a while to get the happy ending but there usually is one.

Hitched is a 5 star read. Do yourself a favour and give yourself a Valentine's Day treat. Publication day is the 15th of Feb 2024.

My thanks to NetGalley and Pan Macmillan for a digital copy of this book in exchange for a review.

Well its fair to say that this is an absolute hoot!

Definite Hangover vibes but for women and the fallout is immense. Chuck in an intriguing ex, clingy fiancé and some hysterical girl mates and you have the perfect pre wedding cocktail.

Some hilarious scenes, so comical, I was very ready to "feel the rush"!

Pure escapism, total chaos at times, and just the holiday I needed. Sublime.

I could not put this book down. It was the perfect read to unwind with in the evenings after a long day.

The friendship between the girls made this story for me. I loved the brutal banter between them. It’s been a while since I’ve laughed out loud at a book, but this book had me giggling. There are scenes that I will be thinking about, and sniggering over for a while.

I liked the chemistry between Kate and Trevor and the fact they weren’t overly gushy with each other and just had fun sold their relationship.

This was a fun, mad, Vegas adventure and I will be reading more books by J. F. Murray.
