"Love is an emotion that will destroy you if you let it. It can ruin your life or create a new one. Jealousy isn't much different."
Jennifer Downs treads in dangerous waters.
Finnley Felton is unaware.
With the help of Lady Luck, they will make it through.
Or will they?
Texas is nothing compared to Vegas but among the bright lights and busy streets, Jennifer discovers who she is. Her life has changed, and for better or worse, she continues to live like tomorrow will never come.
Sabotage. Hatred. Betrayal.
Although love is beautiful and kind, it comes with consequences.
Jennifer finds herself fighting. Fighting for her rights, for love, for Finnley, and for her life.
Hearts may be broken.
Lives will change.
But the ultimate question remains: can love win all?
Well I do have to say that I was surprised with this little gem. When I first started reading it – I was thinking it wouldn’t be able to top the first book in the series and it was just going to consist of Jennifer and Finnley broadening their relationship…..never did I imagine all the drama these two would encounter. Never a dull moment in the life of Jennifer Downs and Finnley Felton.
Yes, there were times I really got pissed off at Jennifer and her childish ways when dealing with Finnley – but there were also times that I got so frustrated at Finnley for not exposing his true self or admitting his true feelings. I get it that Finnley was hesitant because of past hurts and Jennifer in turn had to come to terms with Finnley’s business but hell, if they could just understand the simple term of COMMUNICATION…almost all of this drama would have never happened.
These two are a match which should take place inside of boxing ring – who will gain control of the relationship? Who will bend first? Who will finally admit that this is love?
And Luke…don’t even get me started on him….there was one point in the book that I was flabbergasted – I couldn’t believe it.
I love how the author kept the reader on their toes throughout this whole story. You wouldn’t be able to take a break from reading because by the next page, there was a new drama unfolding. Definitely a page turner and I can’t wait for the third book to come out now!!
Jennifer is fired as an escort from The Elite – Jesse has no problems whatsoever in delivering the news to her. Is Finnley done with Jennifer now? What happens next?
After Jennifer proclaims her love to Finnley – he just wants to see where this will go, no commitments, no words of romance – sex just sex and lots of sex. Jennifer doesn’t feel comfortable with this and her take on the whole thing is well, if Finnley doesn’t want a commitment, then she can do whatever she wants. The first thing she wants is to get herself settled in Vegas with a new home and start looking for a job.
Finnley has other plans for her though and now begins the game of cat and mouse – but who is the cat and who is the mouse? Finnley keeps messing up or Jennifer keeps jumping to wrong conclusions which just makes any chance of a solid relationship turn into a clusterfuck.
