I loved it! It was the best of the Wedding Pact series. There were scenes that literally made me laugh. This book is definitely a romantic comedy and a thoroughly enjoyable, lighthearted read. The characters are believable and well-developed. I highly recommend this book.
The three books in this series were so much fun! I have enjoyed all books by this author.

I plowed through this entire book series! I loved every character even during their self-doubt self talk which can be so frustrating! I laughed out loud during The Gambler, something hard to accomplish in contemporary romance! Thank you for a great time.
Of the books so far in the series, The Gambler is my favorite. It brings together new and old characters–like granny!–so that you as the reader can enjoy in some normalcy while exploring the love between Libby and Noah. One of my favorite aspects about this book over the other two is that the love between Libby and Noah is slow building. The two have been friends for a while, but both have ignored their obvious attraction for each other because Libby is engaged and Noah is just a huge sex fiend.
The road trip to Vegas proves to be an exciting ride. Why can’t all road trips be like this? Denise Grover Swank perfectly described how road trips go to. I love that Noah was keeping it a secret from Libby where they were going. And once they were in Vegas, Libby and Noah get a few surprises from back home. They are hysterical and well placed to continue the build up of the romance.
For those of you who are just looking for some hot steamy sex all over a romance book, this isn’t where you should turn. The sex is a HUGE build up between Noah and Libby and how their relationship functions, it works 100%. I applaud Denise Grover Swank for how long it took for our lovely couple to finally consummate their relationship. And when she did, the details in it were nothing that was lewd or too descriptive. It was done in a very classy, Denise Grover Swank, kind of way. The woman has a talent for writing those scenes, seriously!
If you’re looking for fun, quirky, hysterical, and honest romance, you need to pick up this book! If you haven’t checked out the remainder of the series, start with The Substitute, then The Player, and finally The Gambler. You won’t be disappointed.
Overall 5/5 rating. A great romance novel that makes you feel good.
....stupid, if you're not.
Denise does it again. A wonderful and hilarious story. The Wedding Pact is a must read.
I literally laughed out loud. Seriously. Out. Loud.
This was my favorite of the three books in this series. Libby and Noah are witty and clever and so, so endearing, and I enjoyed tagging along on their adventure.
