Blog Tour and Giveaway: Shine Not Burn by Elle Casey

~ Synopsis ~

I can't be held responsible. Things that happen there are supposed to stay there, right? Right? Yeeeah. Not so much. 

Andie's just days away from tying the knot, but there's just ooooone little glitch. Apparently, she's already married. Or someone with her name is married to a guy out in Oregon of all places, and the courthouse won't issue her a marriage license until it's all cleared up. Tripping her way through cow pies and country songs to meet up with a man who gets around places on horseback is her very last idea of how to have a good time, but if she's going to get married, make partner at the firm, and have two point five kids before she's thirty-five, she needs to get to the bottom of this snafu and fix it quick ... before her fiance finds out and everything she's been working toward goes up in flames.
~ Our Review ~
4 Star Review by Heather
Wow this book really blew me away.  It was Ah-Mazing.  This book keeps you going from page one until the end.  I had tears in my eyes from laughing so hard in parts. I had tears in my eyes because I was sad.  It made me happy.  I felt like I was living this story.
Andie has her life planned out and doesn't want to venture away form that plan.  All Andie does is work work work.  She doesn't want to go to Vegas for her best friend’s bachelorette party, but gets guilted into going.  There she meets this sexy cowboy, Mack, who she can't get enough of.  Is it true What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas?
A couple years later Andie is thrown off guard when she realizes she can’t marry her fiancé because she is already married.  So she hunts down Mack so she can get a divorce.  She feels this connection with him, but tries to hide it so she can stick to her life-plan.  Can Andie really give up a chance at love to stick to her life-plan that won't bring her life happiness?
Mack was an upright guy who didn't like to go out.  He didn't want to go to Vegas for his brother’s bachelor party, but he couldn't ditch his brother.  He decided to go play blackjack while waiting for his brother and friends.  The last thing he expected was to end up wearing this hot ladies drink.  They laughed and enjoyed each other’s company while playing.  He knew instantly that he wanted to be with her.  He never did understand how she could just walk away from what they shared.  So when she showed up asking for a divorce he refused.  Can he prove that he really loves her? Or will she walk away because of her life-plan? Is he willing to let her walk away again?
This book is filled with so much emotion.  It will leave you wanting more.  I was hoping there would be books on Mack's brother Ian and Andie's best friend Candice.  Let me say that this is A MUST READ!!! It is definitely a top 10 read of the year for me.  :)
