Mile High Matched, Book 3
Synopsis: 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?

Review: I really liked the other novels in this series, so I was really looking forward to immersing myself in a new volume and discovering a new couple at the same time!
Marlee’s life was turned upside down in an instant when her fiancé explained that he no longer wanted to marry her two days before the ceremony. And even if she realizes that her feelings towards him have changed, it’s a hard blow. Worse than that, he doesn’t want to leave their home, he wants to continue working for her parents and wants to continue to enjoy everything they have built together. So here we are, to take her mind off it, our heroine decides to go with her friends and Eli, the brother of her best friend, in Vegas! Good solution to forget, isn’t it? Except only after drinking a little too many drinks, Eli and Marlee get married! And the judge refuses to annul this marriage, which means having to wait 90 days to get a divorce!
I really had a good time with the characters and the story. Marlee finds herself dealing with a completely crazy situation, and it’s even worse when her parents cut her off. She, who has always been dependent on them, will have to find a way to earn money. As for Eli? Okay, well, he’s so dumbfounded he can’t even pronounce the word “married.” Yet they are forced to cohabit together, and this story of wedding/divorce may well bring its share of feelings.
As I said it was a new and very good story and I loved seeing the previous characters again! It was really a real pleasure and I am, as always, looking forward to reading more from the author!
