Maisie Sullivan is a hard-working marketing assistant from Milwaukee who wants nothing more than to earn a promotion and finally finish her college degree. But when she’s swept off her feet by a charming cowgirl while on a business trip to Las Vegas, she decides there’s no harm in having a little fun.
Drew Campbell is a no-nonsense Wyoming rancher with a talent for horse training. Her only goal in traveling to Las Vegas for a riding competition is to win enough money to pay off her family’s debts. But when a beautiful stranger catches her eye and then some, she figures she might as well let loose for a night on the town.
What takes place after that, neither can recall. But months after parting ways, when both their fortunes have fallen, they discover what happened in Vegas has followed them home. A quickie divorce will solve the problem, but each woman has something the other needs, and neither will budge until she gets her way.
They just want to get on with their lives, but will they end up falling in love with their wives?
If you enjoy a smoking hot fish-out-of-water clash between a city girl and a ranch girl with a one night to forever romance, don’t miss the latest collaboration of Miranda MacLeod and TB Markinson.
My thoughts (Caution ahead, there is a wee bit of a spoiler in my review.)
What stays in Vegas does not always stay in Vegas (chuckle). I love this particular story for this trope. I’m not usually a fan of the trope due to alcohol being an overriding factor in the participants’ decisions. In Two Of A Kind’s case, it is pure chemistry.
Victoria Cooper has created a cute cover that draws the eye and is sticking to Markinson’s current baby blue background theme (with the exception of the Women Lost series). It is still unique enough to stand out among the current covers on the market.
Maisie and Drew get to know each other a bit, while sober, before their night of debauchery happens. (There’s your spoiler.) I love their interactions and excitement about each other. T.B. Markinson and Miranda MacLeod have created a fun romp in Vegas.
Then comes the drama! Oi vey! It is so much and it is all deserved on both parts. Their relationship develops over time which is another factor that I love. We get to see them build a foundation and grow. This is not to say that there isn’t some fun mixed in there – I want my own cabin please. I would have liked to see more sheet action, but I have noticed that Markinson has been drawing back on sex scenes in their recent releases.
Two Of A Kind doesn’t have any diversity other than a drag queen in Vegas. There is no mention of safe sex. I kind of understand in Maisie’s case as most heterosexual females do not think about lesbian safe sex. In Drew’s case though, she has one night stands and it is discussed to herself so safety measures should have been used.
I like this easy and quick to read romance. I read it in one night and it gave me that happy feeling you want when you finish a romance. Visit Vegas with Two of a Kind.
