Overview

Welcome to Vegas. Home of the Sin City Collectors. The job description is easy: Bring the offending supernatural in to the Boss and don't ask any questions.

Ginger Elliot is a succubus on the run. She's in danger of being Collected, but her first priority is to find her brother. Even though she operates the biggest spy network in the supernatural world, it may not be enough to free her from the crimes she's been accused of committing. It doesn't help that she hasn't fed in months, and keeping her deteriorating condition from the sexy shifter who's accompanying her is getting trickier by the hour.

Luke Jones is on a mission to save the succubus he's fallen for--not only from her brother--but from herself. The two have been on the incubus's trail for weeks and finally have him backed into a corner. Luke knows the succubus is in trouble, but he has no idea how to help her. In the end, he has to let go of his painful past or lose her forever.

What's Collected in Vegas, stays in Vegas...

Luke and Ginger have been on the road over three weeks now, searching and chasing her brother. Ginger feels they have Damien with his back against the wall in this cave, and he's got one end game. Luke is now on the Sin City payroll, his application accepted when he left with Ginger. Ginger is physically slowing, hiding it from Luke because she hasn't "feed" in over six months. She has to be careful not to touch the attractive Luke. She's falling for him and he for her. However Lukes past with incubi is not a pleasant memory. At all. They both will face pasts they don't want too, and accept it as a past and those people are not the view of a whole race's or the world's. But they will have to accept it before it kills them. Ginger is organized and resourceful. She has to be to have created such a detailed underground network in buying/selling information. However, Ginger has a flaw. Ginger doesn't like what she is or how she has to survive. She knows her brother doesn't either... or does she? She's a succubus. Ginger is a nice addition to the variety of a world we have here. Luke... hmm. What to say about Luke? I liked him the best here. He's calm and collected. He is also determined and knows what he likes and wants. He's the calm and patient man that Ginger needs. Luke does seem like the perfect man in all aspects here. (When we get from Gingers POV, and even thoughts of his own when we see his POV.) He's strong and organized too. The story is these two working through what they have grown up thinking to come to a point where they can accept themselves and maybe each other. Before it's to late. Oh Damien. Grrr. We get to see him face to face as well, if only for a minute. What a... well, after the ending of Ante Up, we catch up with him. Oh! We meet a new character here. And we have to be seeing him in the future. I am curious and would like to see him. I've mentioned the end of Ante Up. Do you have to read it before this story? No, you don't. There is a connection but the story does not rely on it and doesn't even tell of the same couple. Each story is a different couple, so you can read at any order you'd like. But if you want to read in time order, then yes. This story was a lovely one to relax with. And to read Ginger describe how succubi see nature, wow. This story is lovely for me. Ginger, for whatever reason, didn't seem to catch me like the others. The characters both seem rather calm, and I seem to be entranced with hot headed characters. lol. But these two work well together. A perfect match in Luke and Ginger.

Reviewed by Annie and posted at Under The Covers Book Blog In ALL IN, Amanda Carlson takes on the sex demon. As a succubus, Ginger Elliot has a lot to be worried about. She is in danger of being Collected, but her real problem is locating her brother. Plus there is also the matter what she requires to feed badly and doesn’t have an outlet to work that out on. As a lover of Paranormal Romance, I’ve read many many books on magical creatures, but one that I am constantly excited about are succubi. I’ve only read a handful of these and Carlson’s take on this creature is one that fits her unique world well, but also has some great details that make it her own. I especially liked the first dream that Ginger had. Ginger is a fun heroine who finds herself attracted to Luke Jones. He’s the sweetest guy you’ll ever meet and I just loved how he was so willing and ready to give himself over to Ginger even though she kept him away. Since this is a novella, pacing is very important and yet despite all the action, the romance holds up very well. I actually think Luke might be one of my favorite heroes because he’s not so in your face with his sexiness. That understated bit about him makes him a little more realistic even in these paranormal worlds. I would definitely love to see Carlson tackle Paranormal Romance in a full length novel next time. *ARC provided by author

I highly recommend ALL IN to anyone who delights in tales of romantic paranormal suspense! "That tree--" she motioned toward it again "-- is the equivalent of a demon's wet dream in the natural sense."  "I hear what you're saying, but I'm having a hard time believing it. How can a tree be seen as seductive?" "Why wouldn't it be?" Ginger said, "Anything can be seductive if you see it in the right light. Haven't you taken the time to notice all the beauty around you today? This place is absolutely breathtaking!" "I see it, and the scenery is nice, don't get me wrong, but it doesn't come close to giving me a stiffy." He grinned at his joke. She crossed her arms. "Then you're not appreciating it enough. Nature should be... stiffy inducing." ... "And just so you know, that was one of the best lessons I've ever had. Wolves don't notice much past their noses, so that kind of beauty is lost on us." ALL IN by Amanda Carlson is another great addition to the Sin City Collectors series! The Sin City Collectors is a continuing novella series by Amanda Carlson and Kristen Painter. ALL IN is Amanda's third addition in this fantastic paranormal saga set around Las Vegas, but it's technically the fifth installment when you include Kristen's contributions. These novellas can all be easily enjoyed as standalones, but catching up with prior favorite characters in each installment will increase your pleasure. Regardless, you will definitely want to read this novella in one sitting. Much of this tale takes place in scenic Great Basin National Park in Nevada, a stone's throw from Las Vegas.
