Amanda's college graduation trip to Las Vegas is supposed to be the best week of her life. But when she wakes up on the final morning of her trip in a drunken haze with a wedding ring on her finger, it turns into a nightmare. Wealthy playboy Blake, the boy who broke her heart freshman year, is now her husband. His family kicks him out when they hear the news, and they have to live as man and wife, with her parents, until their annulment goes through. But Blake hopes that he can use this time to convince Amanda that he really is the man for her.
While the characters in Ring on Her Finger are very broadly drawn (Blake's family are evil rich people, Amanda's family are salt-of-the-earth, hardworking midwesterners), the plot will likely satisfy most romance readers. Amanda is worried about sacrificing her short-term goals of going to Africa, even if it means she can't have Blake in the long term. The ending seemed super rushed and hurried, and not especially believable and romantic, but other readers may feel differently.
