About this ebook

Note to Self --Do NOT bang your best guy friend in the limo on the way to the swanky Vegas hotel.


I give myself very good advice. Too bad I suck at taking it.


If only Colin and I hadn't drunk so much whiskey, 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 territorial and protective.


Not that my bad boy rock star best friend is any help. Walking around looking ridiculously sexy, telling me I'm perfect in that panty-melting voice of his when we both swore we’d never do anything to put our friendship at risk. And Colin never breaks a promise.


But then, he has no idea I’ve secretly been in love with him for years. 


I guess I should just enjoy the ride, but I can’t stop thinking about what happens when this vacation ends and I head home alone, nursing one hell 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.

This is my first book by this author and the first book in this series and I loved it! Kirby and Colin were adorable together. I couldn't wait to see what they'd do next. The writing was clever. There was great character building. Great secondary characters and a feisty cat named Murder. The witty dialogue made me smile, giggle, and even laugh out loud more than once. The only thing I can really say even remotely negative is that maybe the plot got a little bit too convoluted at the end. It was really two separate plots combined. Regina was enough for me and I will leave it at that. Great read and I highly recommend this book!

Fun, laughter and a touch of mystery!!! Thanks for that Lili, I now have Toto’s song stuck on repeat in my head. Anywho!! The Bangover is a laugh-out-loud, sweet and sexy story featuring two longtime best friends; horror novelist Kirby Lawrence a.k.a Larry and rock star Colin Donovan. They’ve known each other since they were freshmen students in high school. Colin was the geeky kid that sassy, confident Kirby took under her wing. Now Colin is the sexy, soulful and hot lead singer for his band, Lips On Fire. He’s always been there for Kirby and when she needs him, he’s the one she always turns to. Kirby’s early childhood wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows, so for all her beauty, confident attitude and sassy banter, she’s slightly broken inside. She’s had to fight to get where she is today, but she’d never have made it without Colin. Boyfriends and girlfriends have come and gone for both, but now they’re both single and just a little jaded with life and love. Colin plans a sex free month of songwriting and Kirby is still bothered about the breakup of her last relationship, even though it was months ago. After an accidental hot as hell Kiss, Colin comes up with a plan to get them both over the hump. A week in Vegas, just the two of them. Nothing goes quite to plan. There’s Colin’s ex and Kirby’s last boyfriend to deal with. Mummys. Curse. And…. coffins. Add in a touch of suspense, plenty of giggles, a ton of smexy times and one… How did he do that??? I’ll let you find out that moment for yourself.

I totally adore Lili Valente's latest laugh out loud, sweet sexy story about Colin and Kirby (aka Larry), two best friends that finally take the leap to add benefits. And in Vegas to boot! Colin is a rock star and Kirby is an author and they've both been secretly crushing on each other for years. Will what happens in Vegas really stay in Vegas for these two besties? Lili is one of my go-to RomCom gurus who never ever disappoints; I always know I am going to be thoroughly entertained and satisfied between all the funny, crazy and swoony moments encased in such a fun story. There is so much more happening in this book than I could have imagined between Kirby's angry cat Murder, a creepy coffin, crazy exes (yes plural), sweet moments, sexy times and very humorous banter and antics. Snatch this one up, you will absolutely love it!!

About the author

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.
