She Woke Up Married tells the story of a woman trying to figure out what she wants in life, while battling the demons of her past. Paris James has been a world famous model for a decade, and has reached the point where her celebrity has waned. So, for her thirtieth birthday, she decides to head to Vegas and experience life in the land of sin. Paris gets more then she bargained for. After a night of partying, she wakes up with a strange man in her bed, and she's wearing a wedding ring. Somehow in the haze of the previous evening she got married!

Once Paris realizes what has happened, she berates her new husband. It turns out that he is her childhood best friend, Turner Pruitt. Since high school he had been kicking himself for not pursuing a relationship with her. To him, their situation is a dream come true. But Paris feels that she's made a huge mistake and packs her bags to head back to New York. Remembering her stubborn personality, Turner lets her go, with the intent to follow in a few weeks. While they are apart, Paris discovers that she might be pregnant. When Turner shows up, he puts two and two together from her frequent trips to the bathroom after meals. Tests show that Paris is carrying twins. But, thanks to an unhappy childhood, she does not want to be a mother.

I did not enjoy this book as much as I expected to. Paris's consistent whining gets annoying and takes away from the story, while Turner seems too much of a pushover. If you can get past their personalities though, She Woke Up Married is an amusing read.
