Megan Scott wants a baby without the complications and disappointments of having a man involved so her obvious choice is to make a withdrawal from a sperm bank. However, the night before her cousins Las Vegas wedding doesn’t go quite as planned and Megan wakes up the next morning with a killer hangover and a husband she doesn’t remember.
Conner Reed wants a family without involving love in the mix. When Megan turns up at his table and lays out her plans to have a baby without all the complications, he finds that she is the perfect fit to his own plan. Convincing her to marry him and start a family was surprisingly easy yet the morning after, when he discovers that she was drunk accepting his proposal, is anything but.
She wants an annulment and he still wants a family. After a healthy dose of persuasion, Conner talks Megan into giving their quickie marriage a trial run. Although when two highly determined and self-reliant people are thrown together, things never go as expected.
Waking Up Married is fun, fresh, and thoroughly contemporary. While the concept of waking up in Vegas married to a stranger isn’t a new one in the romance world—or the actual world, for that matter—, it has never been done quite like this and for me this new concept of both characters wanting to achieve their goal of having a family without the complications of love was what sold it.
Both Conner and Megan are strong-minded and in a sense unyielding. They both have the same goal in mind: Have a baby/family without the chaos and disappointment of love. Yet they never counted on feelings and emotions getting in the way although when they share such strong sexual tension emotion is hard to avoid.
Overall, I loved this book; I just wished that it had been a bit longer.
