Release + Review - The Bangover - Lili Valente

Dear Self—Do not pass Go, do not bang your oldest friend in the limo on the way to the swanky Vegas hotel. Just get back on the plane, fly home, and forget you almost had co-ed naked best buddy time with the one man who is completely off limits.
I give myself very good advice. 
Too bad I suck at taking it.
Not that Colin Donovan, my bad boy rock star best friend, is any help. Walking around looking ridiculously sexy, telling me I’m beautiful and fun and perfect the way I am and somehow making me believe it. 
If only we hadn’t drunk so much whiskey that first night, if only I’d kept that red bikini in my suitcase, if only his evil ex-girlfriend hadn’t come sniffing around making me feel all territorial and protective.
And if only I hadn’t been secretly in love with Colin for years before this Friends with Bennies Vacation got started.
Who knows? Maybe the high will be worth the fall. 
Either way, there’s no way I’m leaving Vegas without one heck of a Bangover.
The Bangover is a red-hot, laugh out loud rom-com featuring two best friends on a collision course with Vegas-flavored disaster—and each other. It stands alone. No cheating or cliffhangers.

Johnaka's Review 

“friends to lovers romcom, 5 stars”

Colin and Kirby have been friends since they were young teens. They have always been the one person the other could count on. One night after a few too many drinks and a dry spell Kirby propositions Colin which he jobs on. She’s the one woman he can trust, what could go wrong? The chemistry between them is explosive but will they burn out and burn years of friendship along with them?

Oh how I loved The Bangover! Valente had me giggling from the start. Kirby is dark and weird and I absolutely adored her. Both her and Colin are artists just different mediums and they understand each other like no one else would. He’s a musician who needs to write a new album. Colin is sweet, a little dirty talker, and fiercely loyal to Kirby.

The antics that take place in The Bangover are like no other. These guys are perfect for each other and were a long time coming but ex’s and drones, and an evil cat named murder want to keep them apart. The question is can they?

Plot-5/5 Characters-5/5 Heat-5/5 Writing style-5/5 Overall-5/5 


Author of over forty novels, USA Today Bestseller Lili Valente writes everything from steamy suspense to laugh-out-loud romantic comedies. A die-hard romantic and optimist at heart, she can’t resist a story where love wins big. Because love should always win.
When she’s not writing, Lili enjoys adventuring with her two sons, climbing on rocks, swimming too far from shore, and asking “why” an incorrigible number of times per day. A former yoga teacher, actor, and dancer, she is also very bendy and good at pretending innocence when caught investigating off-limits places.
You can currently find Lili in the mid-South, valiantly trying to resist the lure of all the places left to explore.
Lili also writes super naughty books as L. Valente.
