I am vociferously passionate about good books. And I hate adverbs.
I found myself shocked by how much I loved this Randy. It’s like he is a completely new character in this book. Finally I understand him. Finally I find him amazing, attractive, and fantastic. Finally I get to love him.
I also loved that the wager was on the table from square one, and not a dirty secret.
I loved that Randy had a place to flee to, to stand and look out over the city.
I loved that Slick just got Randy.
And I adored how Randy understood Slick.
This was a delightful story, and a true follow-up to the amazing Special Delivery.
The language is, as always, tight, crafted, and precise. There was, for me, way too much poker in here, but hey, we’re in Vegas. Poker is kind of a backdrop-character there. I can’t say I followed the games too closely, I am truly more of a black or red kind of girl. Sue me.
Crabtree was a brilliant character! So much of Old Vegas felt true.
I was given an ARC of the new edition of this book for free from the publisher, Samhain Publishing.
A positive review was neither expected nor promised in return.
