“You got married on your divorce-cation?”
That would unfortunately be correct.
I was hanging with the girls, celebrating my divorce when I saw him, my crush, sitting in the corner of the bar all alone. Being single and looking for a wild night, I asked him if he wanted to join me. To my delight, he said yes.
Drinks were consumed, fun was had and then . . . one drunken conversation with a cranky gondolier in Las Vegas led to an Uber lift through a drive-thru wedding chapel with the incredibly hot, British bad boy, Pike Greyson.
On paper, it seemed like I hit the jackpot. And if I wasn’t fresh from a toxic marriage, I would have absolutely noticed the finer things about him.
But I wanted nothing to do with being married, so when I arrived back home from my eventful weekend in Vegas, the last thing I expected to see was a new doting husband already moved in.
I asked for an annulment, he pulled a Ross Geller and said no.
That’s right, he said NO! Instead, he asked for three months to prove we could be good together.
Insanity clearly knocked him in the head and the only way I could convince him to give up on our sham of a marriage was to show him just how wrong we were for each other. Only problem with that was, he saw right through my every prank, every trick, and every yearning emotion I attempted to mask.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
I did not want Put Me In Detention to end! Cora and Pike’s story gave me ALL THE FEELS!!
This book is part of Meghan Quinn’s teacher’s series, and Cora is Arlo’s sister on her Divorce-cation in Vegas with the girls when they run into hot, tattooed British history teacher Pike. Cora wants a hot one night stand to celebrate her divorce… and ends up marrying Pike kind of on a date. She figures they’ll get divorced when they get back to Chicago, but Pike has other plans.
This book is hilarious. Right off the bat, I was hysterically laughing at these two. There is some serious chemistry between them, and she refuses to give in. The game they play of her trying to push him away while he’s trying to get to know her — and all the pranks involves — were awesome. Disappearing bathing suit?? Where did that come from, Meghan? Loved it!
But as funny as this romcom is, MQ, as always, does a fantastic job of showing a vulnerability to the characters. Like Pike’s family issues with his dad, and his reasons for wanting to stay married. Like Cora’s insecurities based on her last marriage, and her troubled past. It all leads to a beautiful payoff once Cora agrees to stop fighting it and date her fake husband. There are some really tender scenes and Pike is a super sweet guy even when he’s trying to be a jerk just to please his wife.
Should he have kept the truth from her? No. But then we wouldn’t have had that wonderful plot twist, the awkwardly painful scenario that ultimately brings these two back together!
As much as this book is Cora’s story, it is also Keiko’s story. In a lovely subplot, the Female Sheldon of this girl group gets her own HEA with Kelvin, and I couldn’t have been happier.
Thanks for another fantastic escape, Meghan! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
