He’s playing for her heart...
World-class statistician and poker prodigy Daisy Drake has two rules: never risk anything you can’t afford to lose, and never, ever, trust a gambler. Which is why she gave up the game and moved to Los Angeles, where she became a tenured professor. But when an old acquaintance calls needing Daisy’s...expertise...to help catch a cheater, she heads back to Las Vegas and the poker tables.
FBI Agent Ryan DiNatto’s been a gambler since he was four, and a hustler since he hit puberty. Coming off an undercover mission that ended with him shot and his partner in a wheelchair, Ryan’s out for blood. With a mob accountant and a hit man on the loose, the stakes have never been higher, and this time, he’s determined to make things right—even if it means beating spunky, sexy, Daisy Adams at her own game.

Great romantic suspense book! While All In might be a bit predictable, it is written so well that it probably won’t even bother you, I know it didn’t bother me! I couldn’t seem to put it down and I enjoyed the characters and just everything, it was great! Even though this is the second book in the series, it didn’t really seem to matter. Also I loved this book so much that I am going to go back and read the first book and any other books from Aleah, she is a very talented writer! *I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review.*
If you are looking for fast paced sexy romantic suspense, you have found it in this book. Daisy is an advanced mathematics professor who is called by a very dear friend of hers to help solve a problem at the casino he manages. Almost immediately she meets the sexy as sin man (Ryan) in the room next to hers. He's also trying to investigate something at the casino, but as an undercover FBI agent. As expected, fireworks erupt between Daisy and Ryan. While it is somewhat predictable, this book is so well written that you just don't care. It kept me engaged and turning pages just as quickly as possible. I loved that it was set in a casino and all that that offered for the author to embed in the book. If you are a romantic suspense fan, you will love this book. While this is the first book I've read by this author, it won't be the last. I've added her to my must read authors' list.
