Goodreads Synopsis:

Andie Marks, known as “Party Girl” in her college days, is now a whip-smart lawyer on the fast track to success. Determined to move on from a bad break-up, she joins her girlfriends for a wild bachelorette weekend in Las Vegas, promising to let her hair down just this once.

Vegas is a blur of cocktails and blackjack, and in the middle of it all she meets Mack, a real-life cowboy with a winning hand and an irresistible body. They get lucky in the casino and luckier back at the hotel, a hot night of passion that was definitely not part of Andie’s life plan.

By dawn Mack is gone and all she has to remember their one-night romance is a hangover and a pile of casino chips. Or so she thinks…

4 / 5 Stars


Shine Not Burn is a incredibly fun story about what happens when a bachelorette party trip to Vegas goes wrong — or maybe right.

Andie’s a straight-laced lawyer with a life plan. She knows what she wants and it’s not going to Vegas, but Andie can’t let her best friend down. Too bad it costs her Luke, her long-term boyfriend.

In order to get her mind of Luke, Andie sets out looking for a one-night stand. She finds that in a sexy cowboy named Mack. They spend a passionate night Andie won’t soon forget.

But the next morning, Andie does just that. Everything that happened in Vegas stays in Vegas until a little surprise pops up in the future.

Shine Not Burn was such a cute, fun, sexy, steamy read. It’s filled with Elle Casey’s great writing and amazing humor.I loved the characters, especially sexy cowboy Mack. It’s only downfall was that it was predictable, but that’s not surprising considering it’s a “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” type of story.

Shine Not Burn is a contemporary romance that will put a smile on your face.
