For Morrison Caldwell, life is a game of chance. A high roller with a legendary poker face, he’s the wild card of the family, always chasing the next thrill and never staying put for long. The one place that always lures him back is Las Vegas, with its hot tables and even hotter women. He’s perfectly content to live his life as a series of one-night stands. But when a parking lot confrontation with a cocktail waitress takes a naughty turn, she leaves Morrison aching for another round.
After a long losing streak in Sin City, Hailey Poe is ready to get lucky. A steamy tryst with a cocky, mysterious stranger is the kind of no-strings encounter she’s been craving . . . until Morrison Caldwell asks for more than she’s willing to offer. But when Hailey’s controlling, soon-to-be ex-husband tries to take her daughter away, she can’t afford to turn down a helping hand. In this winner-takes-all game, Morrison is gambling with Hailey’s life—and her heart.
This book is bloody brilliant i loved every word.
I adore the Caldwell brothers, they have such a beautiful sense of family, even with all there rough around the edges ways they love each other and the women in their lives fiercely.
Morrison i found to be a really interesting guy, he seems to make a great living off being a high rolling poker player, his nickname is Aces. I loved how he used his past awful experiences with his father to perfect his poker face and his skill to really help Hailey and Marisa out of a equally awful situation.
Hailey is a strong character hell bent on making life better for her daughter than the one she found herself in, i think the way she fought to the very end to do this with as little help from others was something to be admired.
The plot and characters keep you engaged the whole time your reading, that being said i still wanted more and cannot wait for Jagger’s book.
Both these authors have made this book a very enjoyable read. 5 stars for sure.
