Overview

Charlie 'the Devil' Singleton is the face of professional poker. Notorious for playing cards and women, he knows when to hold 'em, when to walk away, and when to run-and he's got skills at the poker table too. But Charlie's ready to change his ways, and the surprisingly sexy texts he's getting from Riley are making him want to bet everything...on her.

Riley Carter is nothing like the hotel heiresses who make the news. A girl who's determined to run her father's hotel empire can't share many traits with women who fill the gossip rags. But when living in Vegas, a straight-laced life can be stifling...and 'the Devil' has a way of tempting even the best-behaved girls.

When Riley discovers the naughty messages on her new cell haven't been coming from "Mr. Right" but from Charlie, she falls into a hot affair with the last man she expected. But consorting with the notorious bad boy puts her hard-won reputation on the line, and Riley must decide if the poker player is more to her than a little TEXT APPEAL.

    Beautiful, intelligent, business-minded, good girl Riley Carter

    Beautiful, intelligent, business-minded, good girl Riley Carter falls for the gorgeous, clever, notorious bad boy, poker player Charlie ‘The Devil’ Singleton through risqué and sexy text messages which are mistakenly coming from Charlie and not from her “boyfriend”. Riley is addicted to sexy lingerie and Charlie only re-enforces and encourages her addiction by purchasing provocative and amazing pieces for her. There is great and fluid chemistry between characters. Sexy, easy, fun and fast read.

    A Hot, Fantastic Read!

    Riley is the good-girl heiress (on a budget) of a Vegas hotel mogul, and Charlie is the good-looking (but going broke) face of pro poker...not to mention the brother of Riley's best friend. Complicating matters is Riley's longtime boyfriend Chaz, who's also her fellow employee at one of her father's hotels. When some not-so-innocent texting gets out of hand, it leads to a little more than any of them bargained for...

    Lexi Ryan has crafted such an engaging story with TEXT APPEAL. Not only is it a very sexy read -- from the lacy lingerie to the romantic dining to the hot elevator scenes -- but it's also well plotted, showcases humorous and smart dialogue, and has wonderfully charming main characters. Definitely check it out. This steamy contemporary romance is a sure bet!

    Only in Sin City can steamy text messaging by a notorious bad boy professional poker player nicknamed "The Devil" tempt a good girl hotel heiress with a secret obsession for sexy lingerie to go all in and risk her straight-laced reputation and future!




    Riley Carter is the daughter of a wealthy Vegas hotelier who works for her father and is determined to one day run the hotel empire when he retires. So she leads a straight-laced professional life and dates her father's right-hand man, Chaz, aka Mr. Right. But this good girl has a secret obsession for sexy lingerie.




    Charlie "The Devil" Singleton is a notorious bad boy professional poker player who knows his way around the poker table and lovely women. With his personal life in shambles and his professional career in a slump, he's looking to make some changes. He comes to Vegas to participate in a poker tournament that just might change his luck and life around.




    Charlie runs into Riley at the local mall outside a lingerie shop, where she was eyeing a sexy corset. They've known each other for years, Riley is his sister Lacey's best friend, and he's always been attracted to her but never had the chance to pursue her. He offers to purchase the corset for her, but she refuses saying she wouldn't wear it, he knows she really does covet the sexy lingerie and buys it anyway.




    The next day Charlie texts Riley, and she thinks that the texts are from her boyfriend. But when the texts become more seductive and suggestive, Riley finds out that the sender of the steamy text messages is really Charlie, and she has to decide what she really wants out of life and if it includes the bad boy poker player.




    Text Appeal is a sexy good girl - bad boy romance story that is simply a wickedly delightful read! Written in the third person narrative, author Lexi Ryan weaves a sassy little tale of two very different people who find love under the glittering lights of Las Vegas.




    Rich in detail and vivid descriptions, the author transports the reader to Las Vegas, the most famous gaming town in the US, where money and booze flow, and exciting entertainment and sex appeal is part of the storied town's history. As a former casino dealer in Atlantic City who dealt BJ, Craps and Poker, I absolutely loved the knowledgeable gaming references that the author weaves into the story. Even if you're not a poker enthusiast, this story will peak your interest and teach you a little bit about the exciting game of chances that are available at your local gaming houses.




    Charlie and Riley have a sizzling chemistry that leaps off the pages. I loved how their relationship blossoms as the story unfolds. The exciting twists and turns keeps the reader guessing what will happen next as Charlie and Riley decide to take a chance and make changes in order to get what they want in life. With humorous and sassy dialogue and steamy interactions; and a wickedly sexy storyline that is sure to curl your toes and keep you turning the pages; Text Appeal is one heck of an enjoyable romance story that will simply make you smile.

    TOO GOOD!

    Everygirl needs to let her ING out every once in a while. Riley just needs a little help, and it's none other than Charlie, "The Devil" himself to just that. This is about all about fate, well with a little help from your friends of course.
