What happened in Vegas should stay there, not follow Amanda home wedded to the man who broke her heart.

After celebrating college graduation with her friends in Las Vegas, Amanda St. Claire wakes up with a terrible hangover and a ring on her finger. Her day gets worse when she finds out she's married to rich playboy Blake Worthington - the guy she has loathed the past four years. Amanda convinces Blake to legally terminate the marriage and they both return home like nothing ever happened. That is, until Blake shows up on her doorstep and Amanda has to come clean with her family.

Together for better or worse while the legalities are cleared, Amanda reluctantly plays along, but then the unthinkable happens - she finds herself falling in love with Blake. Can they overcome the past? Or will it end their future before it even starts?

My Review

Ring on Her Finger was a fun and cute romance. It did frustrate me at times when I wanted to literally shake some sense into both Amanda and Blake. There were some edgier parts that had more depth when Blake had to deal with his family and his past. He and Amanda definitely also tend to have issues with getting hurt with minor scrapes through proving themselves in Blake's case (such as trying to catch a greased pig) and with Amanda just minding her own business on a date (when out horseback riding with Blake for one instance). There was some humor, tension, a huge sense of family (I loved Amanda's family!!!), and some stubbornness romance. I did want more chemistry between Blake and Amanda. I felt like they didn't spend as much time getting to know each other and have actual conversations as they should have. They did have conversations, but they were generally one sided one way or another and with Amanda just being obstinate. There also was some inspirational moments that came across as an afterthought and could have been weaved in better. There were definitely parts where I really felt for Blake who was putting his heart out there for Amanda only to have it continually trampled.

Overall, a sweet romance. I'll be looking to see what else Lisa Swinton has written.

Content: Some suggestive parts and innuendo, but pretty clean.

Source: Received through, which did not affect my review in any way.
