this book was a great read by the end the intrigue the plot not the plot about the two main protagonists but the one that got involved with the casino it was excited and full of suspense but the main plot, about that couple, was just an okay read It felt cold and lack of feeling certainly this book contained quite a few steamy scenes but that wasn t my purpose of reading it I expected grudge, antsy and love they loved each other sure it was showed or written but what I read just bored me a lit [...]
This wasn t a very well researched book It s against the Nevada Gaming Commission for the family member a casino owner, or an employee of a casino or his her immediate family to gamble in a casino they own or are employed by Huge fines and a loss of a gaming license would result if a casino owners wife played in a poker tournament in his casino Because of this I couldn t read much past the third chapter.
Romance is never quite as good until a second chance Ms Laurence writes romances with such honesty and emotion that every page is a reward The experience and excitement Annie and Nate bring to the table makes for scorching intimacy both in bed and out and catching the baddies the cherry on the cake Love Ms.Laurence s talent with the written word

Shhh I finished this book at workWarning Do not start this book if you have something to do or somewhere to be I could not put it down In fact I sneaked the book in to work, hid it behind the counter and read while customers were browsing This book has a bit of everything revenge, mystery, romance I didn t expect the twist at the end Awesome book.I hope there will be a book about the secondary characters Tessa Annie s Sister and Gabe Nathan s Friend.
Very good book set around Nathan and Annie who although married, know nothing about each other Annie is the free spirit, Nathan the grounded one Hot love scenes but also tender moments Ms Laurence throws in a bit of mystery surrounding a poker tournament and just when you think you know who it is, she totally tells you that you were wrong Great story set in Las Vegas that will keep you turning the pages to see how it all ends.
A nice cozy romance to get through this long cold winter Annie holds her own on the highly male dominated poke tables Things are even complex as she married the sexy and handsome casino owner Nathan Reed three year prior, only to run out on him before the honeymoon bed was cold Things really get steamy when she finds herself working for her Ex in exchange for a long awaited divorce Is this what Annie really wants though
received for free through First ReadsLight and easy read, finished it in a day I enjoyed the reconciliation between the characters and found the plot to move quickly and with enough action to keep me interested.
I won this book in a giveaway.I enjoyed this book It had a good storyline and made me feel like I was the main characters I could feel what they felt and understood both sides of the problem.
Sizzling romance set in the exciting world of Las Vegas.Unfortunately it loses a star as realistically surely the hotel owner s wife wouldn t be allowed to play in a poker tournament at his hotel
Professional poker player and lifetime commitmentphobe Annie finds herself back in the marital bed and helping her estranged husband Nate foil a ring of cheaters at his casino It is an interesting mix of romance and suspense with a look at the world of professional poker A fun weekend read.
As with all of Andrea s book this is a winner Annie is another strong female character and gets what she wants in the end Andrea s contemporary writing and in depth character building is the new in for romance Realistic writing for today s woman.
