He called me “wife.” This man standing naked in front of me. Tall. Dark. Sexy as sin… He’s my husband?" 

Disjointed images from the night before, the night I can’t entirely remember, float into my mind. Meeting him in the bar. Sharing tidbits of our lives. I own a company that plans bachelor parties. He’s a pediatric heart surgeon. We both live in Las Vegas, but we come from very different worlds. 

And then I remember that kiss. The way his lips brushed against mine, gentle at first, then harder, deeper, with more urgency. Sex in the elevator. Hot, forbidden, delicious. 

I remember the way he made me feel. The way our bodies fit perfectly together. But I don’t remember marrying him. And now, he won’t let me go. Dr. Sexy who saves children for a living. He wants the summer to prove we are meant to be. 

I can give him a summer. But can I give him a lifetime? 

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas…or it changes your life forever.

**This is a contemporary romance novel with a happily ever after. It does NOT have a cliff-hanger ending. **

WARNING: This book contains a lot of sex and a lot of swearing.

The Red Shoe Memoirs Series on Goodreads


Last year I had the chance to review Kiss Me in Paris by this dynamic duo. I was left with a big smile on my face when I finished reading it. I was happy to see that they had written a new series, which is The Red Shoe Memoirs. 

The first installment of this new sexy and fun series is about Kacie Michaels and Dr. Sebastian Donovan.  They meet one night in a bar and after a few glasses of booze and a kiss that sealed their fate, Kacie and Sebastian wake up married. Kacie never expected to wake up married to a sexy doctor. When they wake up the next day, Kacie can't remember all the details of the night before. Everything is a blur, but Sebastian asks her to give their couple a chance at one summer together. After that period of time together, they can go their own way if it does not work out. As days go by, Kacie and Sebastian grow closer together. Kacie's fears catch up with her, and she has mixed emotions about this whole marriage deal. Will Kacie be able to conquer her fears and give her marriage with Sebastian a chance?

I really enjoyed this story. It was fun, steamy and fast-paced. Even if I enjoyed this story I have to admit that I had a hard time connecting with Sebastian. This book was written in Kacie's POV so I understand why it took me some time to connect with him. I usually read books in dual POV's and this was a bit different for me. I really loved when we got to know him better. The moment he shared the reason why he wanted to become a doctor totally melted my heart. Kacie is really easy to relate to. She was a fun character to follow. She encountered some obstacles that she was not expecting, but with the help of her family and friends she took the right decisions and she achieved her goals.

I usually like the couple to have an insta-chemistry/slow romance kind of relationship. I like the sexual tension that builds up to their first touch, kiss, moment of passion together. These two heated things up from the beginning and there was a lot of sex scenes between them. I can't deny that this couple has an explosive chemistry! Even if those scenes are extremely hot and well written I was looking for a stronger romantic connection between them to make me connect more with their couple.

I also enjoyed reading about the secondary characters. Tate (Kacie's brother) and Vi (Kacie's BFF) were really fun! I'm happy that the next installment is about Vi. She's quite the character! I loved seeing these three hang out and have a fun time together. They are a hilarious group of friends that are always there for each other. Tate was an awesome brother to Kacie. They worked hard to get HITCHED, which is their bachelor/bachelorette party planning company, to where it is today. One character that I did not like at all was a character from Sebastian's past. I totally wanted to jump in the story and deliver some much needed virtual slaps to this character! 

Overall I enjoyed this story and it kept me engaged from beginning to end! The Red Shoe Memoirs series, by Karpov Kinrade is sexy and fun! 


I give, Hitched, by Karpov Kinrade 3.5 enjoyable and steamy stars!

Hot Excerpt (Mature Content 18+):

As I sink into the luxurious heat, my body breathes a sigh of relief. The tension and stress from the last few days drains out of me, and I close my eyes and lean back, enjoying the music, the sips of wine, the calm. 

But it doesn't take long for my mysterious future ex-husband to creep into my mind, undoing my reverie with memories of our torrid night together. 

His hotel room had an extra large bath, one we used to full avail. 

He undressed me slowly, his long fingers and strong hands caressing my body with each movement as I stood still, breathing deeply, taking in the moment. I stood naked before him while he was still fully clothed, and the disparity between us sent waves of erotic charge through me. 

As I pull this memory up and view it like a movie in my mind, my hand dips under the soapy water and between my legs. I spread my labia and tease my clit, slipping a finger inside of me as I remember him doing the same that night. 

His hand over my mound, finger exploring my wet center, my pussy aching for more of him. I could see his cock through his slacks, hard and demanding, and I wanted to free him from that constraint, but I also wanted to continue enjoying this moment as he worshiped me with his eyes and explored me with his body. 

I rub at my clit, fingering myself as I use my other hand to tease my nipples. I want this to be him touching me, his fingers, his hands, his tongue and mouth. His cock. But I settle for the memories as I bring myself closer to climax. 

He knelt in front of me, his mouth positioned at my pussy as he flicked a tongue out and lightly licked my clit. My body shuddered, knees weak as he pushed his tongue deeper into me, fingers digging into my hips, holding me tightly against his mouth. My hands fell to the top of his head, to his thick dark hair as he pleasured me beyond reason. The bath filled with water as I came hard in his mouth. He finally let me undress him, just before lifting me up and placing me in the steaming bath. He got in beside me, then pulled me onto his lap, impaling me on his hard cock. 

My wet pussy took him in greedily, eagerly, and our bodies rocked together in the water, his hands exploring my breasts, waist, hips, his fingers finding my sensitive, swollen clit and sending me over the edge again, quickly this time, as I came on his cock. 

I'm nearly there, the memory of him inside me tipping the scale as I come to thoughts of him, alone in my bathtub. 

And I realize then that getting him out of my mind is not going to be as easy as signing a few papers.
