Back Cover Blurb:
Having struggled with a gambling addiction since his early twenties, Madden’s finally moved past it and into a secure, corporate job working for his sister, the one person who means the world to him. When rumors fly and the team and his family both doubt his word, an unlikely ally pulls him out of his funk with a manicured hand: Saralynn.
He’s tired of chasing the same type of unattainable girl, and this up-and-coming publicity dynamo fits that mold perfectly. But she also challenges him and believes in him like no one else. Can they help each other keep their feet on solid ground…or will these twin hearts find themselves skating on thin ice?
Kenyhercz develops her entire cast in this novel. Readers really get to know everyone. Not only does this give the story context in the wider world but it gives you a sense of where everyone belongs. I really enjoyed getting to know the main characters here. His vulnerability and her need to be someone else were quite poignant, especially when shown in such close context. I will admit that I scared my dog out of a dead sleep while exclaiming ‘SaraLynn you bloody idiot!’ at one point in time. I’ve never seen someone make so many mistakes while trying to do what’s best for her. But she was absolutely priceless and completely hilarious while doing it. The interpersonal relationships in this novel are very well done. Although readers can understand both sides of the conflicts, you’ll fall on one side or the other making this story very personal. Kenyhercz not only made me laugh (repeatedly) at her characters’ antics but she also made me cry. My heart broke for them.
I can’t wait for more from the Las Vegas Sinners. I not only enjoyed this novel but am also loving the series as a whole.
