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.

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

The Bangover is Lili Valente’s newest hilarious best friends to lovers romance. I have read every word Lili has ever written and she never fails to entertain me with the laughs, the tears, the heat and the fun! I especially loved this story of two best friends falling for each other. Colin the sexy rockstar, Kirby the quirky writer. They seem like opposites on paper, but they have been through a lot in their friendship. It’s been purely hands off until some whiskey and a spontaneous trip to Vegas. Two friends can bang each other in Vegas and then resume their normal lives, right? Oh, so wrong! Crazy cats, exes, sexy swim suits and hot sexy times are just what Kirby and Colin need to show them sometimes what you’ve always wanted has been right in front of you the entire time. I loved this story! I laughed out loud, teared up, got mad, smiled and felt hopeful! Colin was sexy, sweet and said all the right things. Kirby was adorable and smart and so funny! I loved the secondary characters and I hope to see more from them!

 

So when she says, “I vote kissing friends,”

I answer, “Hell, yes, woman. I’m going to break your dry spell like spring on the Serengeti.”

She laughs, kissing me harder as she says, “You’ll taste the rains down in Africa?”

 

I’m just… excited. Excited to spend a week with one of my favorite people, excited to coax more sexy coming-sounds from her mouth, excited to find out if fucking Kirby is as amazing as I think it will be.

 

She arches a brow my way and whispers, “Everything to do with it.”

I shake my head. “Nah. It takes two to make a thing go right, Larry.”

“Rob Base and D.J. E-Z Rock?” she asks, her dimples popping.

“I only quote from the masters. Eighties rappers and Shakespeare.”

5 out of 5 stars

The Bangover is Lili Valente’s newest hilarious and filthy rom-com. I have read every thing this woman has written and have loved every book. And I must this book is one of my favorites!!
Colin and Kirby have been best friends for fifteen years. Even though they live worlds apart they still make time to talk on the phone every night and see each other whenever he is in town touring with his band. While he is out traveling the world she is happy in her house with her cats writing horror stories. But now? They are hitting Vegas after too much whiskey and a few kisses. I mean what could go wrong when going to Sin City with your best friend to have a sexcation for a week?
A whole lot of crazy!! That’s what. And a whole lot of filthy times!! I don’t want to spoil anything so I will keep it at that. I will say that I didn’t want to stop reading. It was so much fun and dirty with a mix of suspense and emotions. I fell for the characters right away and kept falling until the very end.
Quotes:
“Are you sure you’re going to be okay? She looks…bloodthirsty.”
“It’s you I’m worried about,” I say. “Run. Save yourself. And if I don’t make it out alive, burn everything in my blue file folder. That’s where the bad poetry is.”
“Are you always this comfortable waltzing around naked?” I prop my hands on my hips. “I don’t waltz, Larry. I stride manfully to my destination.” I stalk toward the door, exaggerating the length of my stride and the bend in my knees to deliberately look ridiculous. A husky Kirby laugh rewards my efforts.
“You’re such a clown,” she says, shaking her head.
“I am pretty threatening,” Kirby says dryly before adding in a monotone, “Growl. Snarl. Snap. Grr.”
“Terrifying,” I agree with a smile.

 

 

Author Bio
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.
