One ring plus one wild night equals one crazy love
Sherry Robicheaux loves men. She loves love. And she loves an adventure. So when she meets a mysterious man while working backstage at a country music concert in Vegas, she’s all about what’s happened in Vegas staying there.

Country music superstar Tyler Blue just wants a weekend of anonymity…though there’s something about the spunky waitress with the streaks of purple hair that tempts him like no other. Until the next morning, when they both wake up with fuzzy memories…and rings on their fingers.

Convincing Sherry to maintain the ruse for his public image isn’t the hardest part—it’s reminding himself that their time spent playing husband and wife in her small town of Magnolia Springs can’t last. Tyler’s first love will always be music—and the road is no place for a sweet downhome girl.

Holy shucks. I adored this book. You don't understand how much I adored this book. It's been about two moths since I've read a book like this that kept me smiling the whole way through. Heck, I'm even smiling while I'm writing this!

The setting is southern, which speaks to me because I live in the southern states and the southern feel of it was very much evident. While reading, I WAS in Louisiana, even though I wasn't. A book that captures you and places you somewhere else is worth reading.

The characters. Aw man, the characters. I just wanted to gather them all up and give them the biggest bear hug and them make them all kiss their partner passionately ("Now kiss"). 

A lot of family moments are involved, which made me happy like a maniac because then we see Sherry's family, and if you don't know who they are then you may want to read the other two books in the series soon and find out (however, this book can be read as a stand alone!).

Sherry. Gosh. It's like Rachel spent the weekend with me fishing and some how she saw all my characteristics and insecurities. I'm not saying that Sherry is me but she sure is dang relatable. And those are the best characters to read about. Y'all are going to love her.

Tyler. Golly man, I want someone like him. THE POST ITS AND THE DANG DOG AND YOU'RE FUDGING PASSION. Just stop making yourself hot dang it! Sherry, you are one lucky gal. Anyways, Tyler is not what you expect. When I started this book, my mind was set on what kind of character he was and let's just say that it wasn't a nice mind set. But continuing on with this book, Tyler stole my heart.

Okay, I get really excited when there are dual perspectives in books, especially in romance novels. I don't know why but I absolutely love it. Instead of being trapped in one person's thoughts, you're trapped in two! And that's fun... and frustrating, especially when the characters are being stubborn about their feelings but you'll know eventually they'll get through there thoughts and trust their instincts.

I love these kinds of story lines, and the synopsis does not do this book justice, though the title does, which is what actually urged me to request this book.
Accidentally Married on Purpose is cute as heck. I adore it, you'll most likely adore it, so I don't know what's stopping you from buying this book. Grab it and then come talk to me.

 With more books to be read

Psalm 51:12

P.S. 1) The cover is fudging adorable. 2) I need Charlie's story, I don't care how short it is. 3) My name was in the book! Well... sort of. It was just missing one letter, but that's the closet I've been to reading my name. So I was jumping up and down about that fact.

UPDATE: So while I was rereading bits and pieces of AMoP (yes... I adored it that much), a thought came to me that I've had since I first read this book. On NetGalley and Goodreads this book is listed as a Romance (which I don't mind), and an Adult novel. So diving into this book, I felt a little weird that I was sort of reading one of my mom's novels. But boy did that thought quickly change. Yes, it can be considered an adult novel, but I feel as if it could be read under the NA genre as well.

Here's two reasons why:
1) Sherry and Tyler are still finding themselves even though it may seem they've found themselves already. 2) This is how an NA novel should be expressed. Chelsea Fine recently posted about the NA genre (if you haven't read it click HERE). She talks about the sex content in NA novels and I totally agree with her. This book is a perfect example of what an NA could be about. Sex is involved in the story line and has a turn in the plot, but instead of the graphic scene one suspects from reading a majority of NA books recently, the scene is mentioned but not "shown", and that felt exhilarating. BECAUSE IT WAS SOMETHING DIFFERENT AND REFRESHING. 
And once again I urge you to grab this book and hold on tight.
