I hope you all have had a wonderful week. For this weeks post, I thought I would give a little review of a book that I have picked up and put down many times but have finally decided to read it fully and fell in love with. It took me a while to get into this book but to be honest it could have been because I was not in the right headspace to read a book properly.
So here is what happens in Vegas? A book review.
When the cop…
Tough-as-nails Detective Bonni Connolly is on a girls’ getaway in Vegas with her friends, when Lady Luck shines on her. Seizing the chance to treat them all, Bonni splurges on a little luxury, including a VIP booth in an exclusive club. That’s when she sees him.
…meets the gambler…
Professional poker player Quinn Bryant is in town for one of the largest tournaments of the year. Fortune smiles on him when he spots Bonni across the dance floor. But what starts as a holiday fling soon turns into something more, as Bonni learns to see the man behind the poker face.
…the stakes have never been higher.
Even though Bonni’s trip has an end date and there is another tournament calling Quinn’s name, their strong connection surprises them both. By the end of the weekend, they start to wonder if what happens in Vegas doesn’t have to stay there…
Bonni is one of my favourite characters in this book because she is a strong independent woman who knows exactly what she wants from life but when she gets the opportunity to go on a girls weekend with her old friends she jumps at the chance.
It is during this trip she lets herself have some fun and meets Quinn (a new name obsession for me) who is everything she wants but also is a lot that she can not handle. As a cop, the last person she expected to fall for was a guy who gambles for a living. Although it is an unlikely pairing it turns out to be exactly what she needs.
As the holiday comes to an end she has to make some huge decisions.
This book has all the components to make a romantic comedy. The strong female lead and the strong girl groups surrounding her and the prince charming. I loved this novel once I got into it. It just goes to show sometimes it takes a couple of reads to get into some books.
Have you read this before? What did you think?
