About TAKE IT OFF THE MENU:
Saying “I Do” has never been such a mess.
Marlee Medford just got dumped. Yes, things have become ho-hum in her longtime relationship, but she was two days away from walking down the aisle with the man she thought was her forever when he called it off. Convincing herself that they’d be able to reignite their spark once the wedding craziness settled? That was easy. Suddenly finding herself without a fiancé? Not so much. Marlee needs to regain control of her life, and a weekend away with her friends is a solid first step.
One of Denver’s best up-and-coming chefs, perpetual bachelor Eli Howard, isn’t into serious relationships–especially the kind that ends in marriage. As if to prove his point that they aren’t worth the trouble, the wedding he was supposed to be catering just fell apart. Feeling oddly protective of the jilted bride–his little sister’s best friend–his weekend plans now involve a trip to Sin City with her group of friends. But it looks like he had a bit too much fun in Vegas when he wakes up married…wedding night included.
Marlee’s attempts at getting her life back together are failing miserably. Her ex-fiancé is taking the house, her chihuahua is intent on a love affair with Eli’s sneakers, and she’s now accidentally hitched to the guy who can’t even say the word marriage. With their quickie annulment denied, Eli and Marlee just have to hang tight until the divorce goes through. It’s just a little divorce amongst friends, what’s the worst that could happen?

I am a huge fan of Christina Hovland’s Mile High Matched series. From the moment I met these bunch of friends, I knew that they would have some interesting things to share.
What happened in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? Not for Eli and Marlee. Friends who ended married after a wild night in Vegas. This accidental marriage between these two people who had known each other since childhood felt so right. However, Eli was the reserved guy who loved his planned life and Marlee loved a little bit of wildness in it.
It took one night to finally let them see what was under their eyes for so long. Seeing the other in a new light, feelings they weren’t aware of until they felt that connection, something as enthralling as scary. I adored how they did everything in their own way, when their colorful friends were enjoying too much their situation. From friends to marriage, there was just a little step right into love!
Damn if I hadn’t appreciated every moment. It made me smile, swoon, laugh and I was totally under the spell. I adored how they found their balance, their home, finding their person. The author wrote once again a fun romantic comedy, with this little touch of craziness in the air, written with heart, the characters were engaging and endearing. I appreciated watching the characters growing throughout the story and reading their perspectives.
Delightfully fun and sweet, with feel-good romantic vibes that made me smile so many times I lost count.
