Goodreads:  Brighton Smith doesn’t do outrageous. As an insurance actuary, it’s her job to assess risk and avoid bad investments. But when her fianc√© calls to confess he’s married someone else on a whim (“I looked at her and I just knew!”), she snaps…

That night, at a local bar, Jake Sorensen—hot, rich, and way out of her league—buys Brighton a cocktail. At midnight, she kisses him. And by dawn, they’re exchanging vows at a drive-through chapel.

Brighton knows Jake is a bad bet, but she doesn’t care. After a lifetime of playing it safe, she’s finally having fun. Until the whirlwind romance gives way to painful reality...and Brighton finds out the truth about why a guy like Jake married a girl like her. With her heart on the line and the odds stacked against them, Brighton must decide whether to cut her losses or take a leap of faith that this love affair is one in a million.

Kritters Thoughts:  The third in the Black Dog Bay series that takes the reader back to a small town in Delaware where women go when break ups happen and it is a getaway to mourn the relationship loss and then get over it!  I loved the first two books - Cure for the Common Breakup and New Uses for Old Boyfriends, so check out both of these books first before you read this third in the series.  

First let me say this wasn't my favorite in the series, but in no way am I quitting this series.  I still love the premise of the town and each story has felt unique within the series.  

Brighton visits this town without knowing its history and meets a bar tender at the bar and they run off and get a quickie marriage.  This part I enjoyed and found hilarious, what didn't entertain me was the over and over again of the main character trying to decide if she wants to stay married and trying to get to know this guy she had a quickie marriage with.  For some reason this storyline didn't work for me.

If you have read the first two, I would still read this, I did enjoy reading a story set in the town and I still plan on keeping on with the series, but this was not my favorite of the pack.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
