Brock Gamble's epic fall from the Titan Group labeled him a traitor. He betrayed his men. He failed his family. And when he thought he'd hit the lowest point, his wife walked out with their children, leaving him alone to drown himself in the bottle.

Surviving an abduction didn't end the nightmare for Sarah Gamble. The aftershocks of post-traumatic stress

Overview

Brock Gamble's epic fall from the Titan Group labeled him a traitor. He betrayed his men. He failed his family. And when he thought he'd hit the lowest point, his wife walked out with their children, leaving him alone to drown himself in the bottle.

Surviving an abduction didn't end the nightmare for Sarah Gamble. The aftershocks of post-traumatic stress disorder hit her hard. Self-doubt and confusion. Anger and hurt. Running away was an easy escape until Brock shows up on her doorstep offering a trip to paradise and a promise to fix their marriage.

Before the couple can search for answers, Brock is pulled back into the very world that Sarah is so scared of--kidnapping, cartels, and guns--and the stakes are too high for either one of them to ignore.

Brock Gamble has been married to Sarah for more than a decade.  What they don't know about each other is just too much for that amount of time.  Brock is such a dangerous man, and for the most part he shares as much of the truth about his job as he can.  Sarah, is the mother of his 2 children.  She hides more than she tells. Sarah, decides to finally give Brock a chance to talk things out and in the middle of it all Titan calls.  Jared tells him he is the only one near by who can save this girl.  In the middle of working things out with his wife he has to go out for a mission? Brock is disgusted that he needs Sarah's help on this mission he should not even be doing.  So many things could go wrong, but if anything happens to the love of his life.... why wake up in the morning?  It took time to get out of the bottle and admit he needed her and now this? Sarah is trying to understand where Brock is right now.  She also understands as a mother that if it were her daughter, she would want someone to go in and save the day.  She offers to help because there is no one else and she is capable of taking orders. Brock is injured and Jared must come rescue him and this turns the tides for them.  Jared is still angry about Brock's lies.  Brock just wants to move on.  Wherever that leads to.  As long as Sarah is there, he is good. Such great character development happens in this book for many a Titan character.  I was thrilled to see so many favorites!  This book is known as Titan series Book # 4 by some and 3.2 by others.  You can read it by itself but in order is just more fun.  See more about the Titan series at GOODREADS.

After reading Jared's story, you really want to not like Brock, but you just can't help it.  Loved this story to see his side of everything and the aftermath of his decisions plus seeing him get the chance to redeem himself.  Great, quick story to read!

Reviewed for Read Your Writes Book Reviews by Gemini 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. Source: Personal Purchase

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!  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!
