It was a very fun and quick read. Story revolved around friends who go for a weekend in Vegas. All girl weekend soon becomes something more for Bonni when a handsome gambler sets his eyes on her. Quinn is in Vegas for gambling tournaments, but as soon as he sees Bonni dancing he knows that she is special. Soon they find themselves drawn to each other. What was supposed to be a weekend to unwind for Bonni, and that of gambling for Quinn, becomes so much more for both of them. But they can't work, a cop and a professional gambler isn't an ideal combination. Plus they're in Vegas only for limited time. However, what about after Vegas? Must they leave what happened there behind? Will they even be able to do that? Read the book to find out. ;) I really enjoyed it, story is simple, well-written and characters are great. However, there were a few boring stretched out parts when it comes to the four friends. Although, not all bad, as I did enjoy their girly talk, all in all it's worth the read.
This is a quick and easy read when college friends who are now scattered around the country decide to reunite for a mini vacation to Vegas. They couldn't be more different (understatement). This story centers around Bonni who is a detective working in Toronto and has been buried in her work and needs a break. When she plays the free chips at the slot machine they're given for staying at the hotel she wins and wins big. The hotel upgrades them to a post suite and she generously shares her good fortune with a shopping trip, spa days and etc with her friends. She also meets a man in town for a poker tournament. She's not a gambler. She's not sure what to make of this man Quinn except for the fact that he makes her feel things she's never felt. The story then ping pongs between the Quinn and Bonni and some outings and chats with her friends. I had a rough time liking her friends with the exception of Ava, who seemed the most level headed. The others were just too over the top and at certain points in the book I felt they detracted from the storyline. Silence would have been golden. back to Bonni and Quinn, Quinn is the brother who wanted no part of the family business leaving it all up to his brother to handle. Quinn set his life course to be a professional poker player and he's one of the best. It also means he lives out of a suitcase, no place he really calls home and seems to like it that way. Bonni has him reconsidering his choices. But when the chips are down, and wagers made who folds first? **advanced reader copy from NetGalley and Entangled for an honest review.
