Alyssa Miller is tired of waiting for her next-door neighbor to see her as more than just his best friend. Ready to let off some steam, she heads to Las Vegas for a romance book convention where, if she's lucky, she’ll get down and dirty with one of the sexy cover models.
Dillon Alexander doesn’t do commitment—especially not where his best friend is concerned. She deserves a man who can give her the world, not damaged goods. But when he realizes Alyssa intends to have a one-night stand on her vacation, he hauls ass after her to make sure he’s the one to scratch her itch.
Neither of them expects their explosive chemistry to burn hotter than the lights on the strip, but with a little help from Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, a flamboyant matchmaker, and TSA, what happens in Vegas might not stay in Vegas…

Quick, fun and cute read with the prerequisite angst – don’t think I’d ever get sick of the best friends to lovers trope. Sure, both the H/h have issues, but I wasn’t too convinced about Dillon’s 180 degree sudden turnaround and the piss-poor excuse he makes about being his father’s son that seems to be an apparently good enough reason for his flagrant lifestyle. Can’t blame the heroine for fleeing when the cards didn’t fall the way she expected. Alyssa’s daddy problems made more sense to me and maybe it was the POV in the writing that I felt for her more than I did for Dillon. (My confession? I’m not a great fan of the reformed-playboy-cliche that abounds in chick lit)
