Sometimes it only takes a minute. A connection of eyes across a room, a quickened heartbeat, and everything changes.
I was a cocktail waitress with a fondness for partying and meaningless sex.
He owned half of Vegas, with the reputation to match.
I should have turned away. Instead, I stepped closer.
Then, the lies started.
And someone died.
None of it stopped me from falling in love.
**** 4 Star Review ****
This is one of those books that one could say things happen too fast. The almost insta-love is sometimes a turn off. I teetered on these. One minute I was okay with them, then the next minute I wasn't okay with them. By the end of the book, they fit. Although the connection and relationship moved fast, other things built slow enough to smooth them out.
There is a lot happening in this book. The different tropes criss-crossing, causing a lot of tension for the reader. I really enjoyed that tension. It added to the thrill and fast pacing of the story. It gave me more intrigue. There weren't any lags in the story line because there was just enough going on to keep the reader completely engaged.
I am not in love with these characters, but I don't dislike them either. They work with the plot and storyline. Their perspective roles aren't quite clear. They each blur the lines of what their characters call for, again adding to keeping me on my toes while reading this book.
And that ending?! I wasn't expecting THAT! Did he really say... ??? I can't wait to start the next book. I have no clue where the second part of this story could possibly take me. I am excited to see what happens next!
