Sparks ignite when Cupid takes aim at two mortals in Las Vegas: Randy Jones, an average guy on a company vacation, looks into Garrett’s eyes at a craps table and time stands still. Throwing aside everything he believes, Randy engages in a torrid two-night affair with Garrett—only to panic when he realizes he’s fallen in love.
Cynical billionaire Garrett Shiffler has everything money can buy, and most of his dates can’t see past the dollar signs. Life has taught him that innocence and love are figments of the imagination. But when Randy disappears, taking with him feelings Garrett thought he’d never know, Garrett wages the most important battle of his life to win Randy’s love—but this time he fights with his heart, not his bank account.
Meanwhile, Cupid wonders what happened. His golden arrows never fail unless the Fates interfere. If Garrett wants to win Randy back, he’s going to have to do it on his own, because the Fates have other plans for Cupid.
Priceless by MA Church is a fun and sexy read. I liked the easy style of writing this author has, as well as her ability to bring this reader into the interesting lives of her characters. I enjoyed the light and sweet romance between the two heroes and it was a great read for my hot summer’s day.
Since the blurb does an excellent job at describing the story, I won’t rehash it. I will say that I really enjoyed the intense chemistry that sizzled between the two heroes as well as watching them quickly fall in love together. We’ve all heard the saying ‘What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas’ but clearly this statement doesn’t always apply to real life. When Garret and Randy first meet neither man thought there would be more between them than just a couple of days of flirtatious fun, but as they continue to get to know each other, strong feelings for each other soon comes into play and what once was thought of a quick affair turns into something so deep that neither man can ignore.
Although at first I thought these two men were total opposites from each other, as their relationship continues to develop and they start to really fit together. Garrett is used to getting what he wants… when he wants it. He’s rich and handsome and doesn’t take no for an answer. Because of this, he’s often used for his money, so he’s totally thrown for a loop when he meets Randy. Randy lives a simple life and has only come to Vegas for a little fun. When Garrett sweeps him off of his feet, he’s still determined to see the man Garrett truly is instead of the money that most people see.
I liked how they really seemed to talk and get to know each other. Even though they communicate, both men have fears and still could use a little help when it comes to talking about feelings and so forth. Neither man is perfect, but they really fit well together, and I enjoyed watching them work together to be in each other’s lives.
There is also a fun twist to the story that I loved. We get to meet Cupid, who with his sweet smile and impish behavior plays a role in getting these two together…but did he? You’ll have to read it and find out for yourself. *grin* I’m looking forward to reading more books with this theme to it. Heck, I even hope for Cupid to have his own story as well…
I do think I need to point out that if you are NOT a fan of ‘insta-love’ than this book is probably not for you. Personally, I DO believe in love at first sight, so it’s easier for me to go with the flow. I was definitely in the mood for a sweet, uncomplicated and sexy romance (with a twist) so, Priceless really fit the bill for me. I’m looking forward to reading more books by this author and keeping my fingers crossed that the sexy man with the golden arrows gets his own story as well.
