What happens in Vegas....
Will Tawera doesn't do commitment, except on the rugby field. Moving to Las Vegas to become a kicker for the NFL would be a big change from New Zealand rugby, but then, he's ready for a change. And when he's asked to do a little modeling on the side? Thousands of dollars to hold a beautiful blonde while looking dark, dangerous, tattooed, and Maori? He could do that.
Faith Goodwin doesn't do dark, dangerous men. Especially not when they make her laugh, take her miniature golfing with four-year-olds, and are far too sexy and sweet for comfort. But when Will finds himself in hot water back in New Zealand, who's he going to call? And who would be able to resist answering?

another awesome addition to an awesome series

Another great book from this Audie nominated pair.
I love this rugby romance series and this book did not disappoint. Each character has depth and past events that is effecting their present choices. Ms. James does an excellent job and holds my interest in the process. Her characters are not perfect, often conflicted and often very funny! Faith took me some time to warm to but All Black rugby player Will is one of my favorites. He works hard, makes mistakes, underestimates his value and learns how to do what he thinks is best regardless of what those around him say. Family responsibilities are his priority and even that he mishandles but recognizes his faults and rights the wrong.
This book is really two books in one. Book one is the main story of rugby player Will who, on a whim, poses for some risqué pictures (sexy but not porn) while he is in Las Vegas for a break. There he meets photography assistant Faith. She is a busy woman with 3 jobs and rent to pay. They become friends, enjoy time together then he leaves to return to New Zealand. Book 2 (or at least 1.5) is when Faith takes the pictures and starts to write fan fiction about a Kiwi billionaire to accompany the pictures that feature hunky Will. Unfortunately she forgot to tell Will. This storyline becomes a problem very late in the book, but, until then it is hot, steamy and profitable for Faith. It is also becomes another book for the author- Fierce by Rosalind James.
Will and Faith becoming friends and don't pursuing a deeper relationship until the pictures come to light to the rugby fans of NZ. Then they reconnect to help save Will's career. The All Blacks value dignity, on and off the filed. Bad press personally= bad press for the team= not playing. He tries damage control by having Faith come for a visit and that leads to romance, sex and love!
Claire Booking is brilliant. It is a long book with a lot of characters and she does their voices perfectly. Only once, when going from the main story to fan fiction, did I get lost and have to rewind to figure out why I was in Paris because I didn't catch the change in voices. She has spoiled me for other audiobooks- she is that good.
There are characters in this book from previous books, but this can easily stand alone. In fact, it is probably the best stand alone in the series.
I liked it a lot and truly appreciate the multifaceted characters. No cookie cutter, slam bam romance here. Great stories, great characters, great romance.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.
