Gambled is a novella that is part of The Titan Series. It focuses on what happens between Brock Gamble and his wife Sarah, after Westin’s Chase. I would not consider this to be a stand alone novella. There is a lot that happens prior to this novella that would make it very difficult to follow most of the references without having read the prior books.
Brock Gamble falls into a drunken stupor after Sarah leaves with his two little girls. Up until recently, Sarah and the girls lived inside a bubble and had no connection to the other life that Brock led when he was on missions for Titan. Brock thought that this was the best way to protect them but that idea failed miserably. In the end, his team still had to save them and he was left alone without his friends or family.
The novella focuses on Brock’s attempt to win his wife back. He convinces her to go on a tropical vacation with him. She agrees but she also decides that she no longer wants to live a sheltered life. She wants to be adventurous on several levels, especially where sex is concerned. She also wants to learn more about her husband and what he did to save other people. Sarah wants to be stronger and doesn’t want to ignore the dangers in the world that her husband tried to hide her from. Oddly enough, she gets her chance to do all of these things on their vacation.
While in St. Lucia, Brock gets asked by his Titan boss to rescue a girl that had been abducted who is supposedly not too far from the hotel where they are staying. Reluctantly, he allows Sarah to go with him on the mission and they both put their lives in danger without any backup. What happens next will change them both and have an impact on their future.
I found Gambled to be a good novella. I wanted to learn a lot more about their marriage and evolution. I hope to see more of them in future books. I recommend that you read the whole series. It is worth it.

I wasn't really sure about this story line when I first sat down
I wasn't really sure about this story line when I first sat down to read it. I've never read a romance where the couple is already married and then I wasn't really sure I would like Brocks story. Well, well, well... there is a reason why I like Cristin Harber and its because she can write damn good books!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Smack my ass and call me Sarah! This book picks up right where Westin's Chase ended. Brock betrayed Titan in order to save his wife and kids. Brock had all but killed his friendship with Jared and when it was all said and done, destroyed his marriage and lost his kids. Brock was at rock bottom.
I've gotta say that I felt really bad for Brock because he was only doing what he thought was right. He would and did do anything it took to save his family. I absolutely loved Brock and Sarah's story. I love that they get to fall in love all over again and discover new things about each other.
My favorite sex scene is in the back of the car, *belly butterflies* it was honest, hot, raw, wild and fierce.
The only thing that bothered me was the ice cream. That is just a personal preference thing for me. However, I will say that it was tactfully done and well written and it didn't consume the scene so I was okay with it.
Brock has been redeemed and he deserves his HEA. This novella is only $.99 on Amazon and so worth it. Well done Harber!
