Gemma Carlson didn’t plan on waking up married.
She also didn’t count on running into her old flame—and her son’s father-turned-country-rock star—Travis Bowers, followed by a night of drunken dares. Apparently one of those involved a ring on her finger and a vow…neither of which she intends to keep. Now with a hangover from hell, this good-girl-gone-bad knows there’s just one thing to do: run.
Travis has been all over the world, but Gemma has never been far from his thoughts. So when he had the chance to catch up over a few drinks, he didn’t hesitate. Of course he didn’t expect it would lead to marriage, or a runaway bride! Travis finally has a second chance and doesn’t plan on losing Gemma again—or the son he didn’t know he had. He proposes—albeit belatedly—a date. Or rather, a few. If they can make this marriage work by starting over, he stays. If not…
Gemma’s not interested; she’s got a son to protect and a heart to heal. But having Travis around could make both a little easier. Still, good girls don’t date rock stars…right?

Where to buy
Gemma is easy to love. She is a bookworm and an awesome mom (seriously, how can I not relate to her?!). After ten years of dedicating her life to her son, she decides to attend a book event in Vegas. Except for Gemma, what happens in Vegas, does not stay in Vegas. That's what happens when you re-connect in Vegas with your first love who is now a major Country Music star. It is like no time has passed between them. After a night of drunken fun, Gemma wakes up to find herself married to the love of her life... only she doesn't remember marrying him!
Travis is not what I expected from a Country Music star. His heartbreaking past has left deep marks on his soul. Travis is sweet, kind, gentile, and of course smokin' hot. He wants Gemma and he is finally ready to fight for her. Travis seems to drip romance from every pore of his body. The things he plans for Gemma are above and beyond amazing, even for a book boyfriend. Travis for sure gets my number one spot for most romantic book boyfriend ever.
The story line was sweet and a little bit predictable but that was just the kind of read I needed right now! I really loved both Gemma and Travis and felt connected to both of them. Their relationship felt real, not forced or fictional and that fact really made the whole story for me! I will for sure be checking out more reads by Codi Gary!
Please note that this book is part of the Rock Canyon Romance series. I have not read the first book, however, each book can be read as a stand alone too. Book three in this series is due out May 20, 2014 and its titled Bad Girls Don't Marry Marines. I'm intrigued and cannot wait to sink my teeth in!
