SUMMARY: Lexi has always had a reputation for accidentally messing things up, but she never thought she’d be jobless and homeless at twenty-six. With no other choice, she returns to her hometown to do a little life searching.
Lexi quickly discovers a lot has changed in the eight years since she first left Fairville, a quirky little town in the middle of nowhere. Most of her best friends from high school are now married and have children, and her parents have sold their home and are now living in a loft above their store. One thing still remains the same, though. Anders, her old high school crush is still as hot as ever.
Determined to get her life back on track, Lexi starts searching for an apartment and a job. But during a crazy night at one of her friend’s bachelorette parties, she wakes up in Las Vegas, hungover and married to Evan, Anders’ brother, a guy she barely knows. So much for getting her life back on track.
It is a fun filled novella and I really enjoyed reading it. I’m not a fan of Jessica Sorensen but I did liked this book. It is a first part of a short novella which has only 76 pages. It has a quirky main character that you couldn’t help liking her. This is the first new-adult contemporary novella I’ve read and although it was short, everything was well executed.
Lexi Ashword is a 26 year old woman who left her small home town named fairville 8 years ago to live in Denver as an independent woman which is always her dream. These 8 years, she has gone through so many random jobs and currently she works as an assistant to an event organizer and due to her habit of always messing things up she got fired which left her jobless. If that’s not enough, she gets a eviction notice from her landlord. Now Lexi is totally broke, Jobless and has no apartment to live so she has no choice but to go back to her small town fairville to live with her parents for a few months until her life gets back on track. Fairville is a place where Lexi grew up and now she has to go back to her embarrassing past where she was called T-Rexi. During her time in Fairville, she meets her high school crush Anders who seems to show interest in her but things get pretty much complicated when she wakes up to find herself married to his brother Evan after a crazy bachelorette night party in Vegas.
Lexi is a fun quirky character that I really enjoyed knowing and I pretty much liked her. It’s sad that she has an awful luck but It was really hilarious how she always ends up in trouble. Evan is very sweet and charming guy and I would love to know more about him. I also liked Evan’s younger sister Emersyn who is quite sassy and witty. The romance in it is very light and I think the next part’s going to have more of it which I’m definitely looking forward to. The plot, pacing and writing are all quite good.
Overall, I loved it! I can’t wait to know what’s going to happen next.
Do I recommend it? Yes, I highly recommend this to all the book lovers who are looking for a short NA contemporary read filled with humor and romance.
