About TAKE IT OFF THE MENU:
Saying “I Do” has never been such a mess.
Marlee Medford just got dumped. Yes, things have become ho-hum in her longtime relationship, but she was two days away from walking down the aisle with the man she thought was her forever when he called it off. Convincing herself that they’d be able to reignite their spark once the wedding craziness settled? That was easy. Suddenly finding herself without a fiancé? Not so much. Marlee needs to regain control of her life, and a weekend away with her friends is a solid first step.
One of Denver’s best up-and-coming chefs, perpetual bachelor Eli Howard, isn’t into serious relationships–especially the kind that ends in marriage. As if to prove his point that they aren’t worth the trouble, the wedding he was supposed to be catering just fell apart. Feeling oddly protective of the jilted bride–his little sister’s best friend–his weekend plans now involve a trip to Sin City with her group of friends. But it looks like he had a bit too much fun in Vegas when he wakes up married…wedding night included.
Marlee’s attempts at getting her life back together are failing miserably. Her ex-fiancé is taking the house, her chihuahua is intent on a love affair with Eli’s sneakers, and she’s now accidentally hitched to the guy who can’t even say the word marriage. With their quickie annulment denied, Eli and Marlee just have to hang tight until the divorce goes through. It’s just a little divorce amongst friends, what’s the worst that could happen?

Review of Take It Off The Menu
Review (4.5 Stars): I loved Eli and Marlee’s story. After being dumped the day before her wedding, Marlee goes with her friends to Las Vegas to get her mind off things. Eli and Marlee have been friends for a long time since Marlee is best friends with his little sister and he goes along to keep the girls out of trouble. To their surprise, Eli and Marlee wake up the next morning married and now they must get a divorce before everyone finds out what happened. The only thing is that Eli and Marlee develop feelings for one another and being married doesn’t seem like a bad thing anymore.
I loved the chemistry between these two characters and everyone needs an Eli in their life. I loved how protective he was of Marlee and Marlee needed someone that had her back because of the family drama that was involved with her breakup. This story was hot, sexy and I couldn’t get enough of Eli and Marlee.
