Enjoy your stay lovelies 😉
Professional gambler Sloane Keller is tired of dating weak willed men and longs to meet a man who challenges her dominant personality and forces her to submit. As the Queen of Cards, she’s used to making her own rules and craves the excitement of Vegas. But her inner heart cries out for someone who can be her match, both inside the casino and in the bedroom.
As the new dealer in town, Roman Steele is burnt out on women looking for a quick penny and a man to follow. He craves a woman with fire in her soul and a keen intellect who can challenge him. When his brother recruits Madame Eve to help, Rome is amazed at the complicated woman he gets to spend the night with. But when the evening is over, will she be gutsy enough to offer him forever?
Disclaimer 1: This is the second book in a series, but can be read as a standalone.
Disclaimer 2: This book contains themes ans scenes intended for mature audiences.
This novella is about Roman Steele, the second brother in line for Steele Brothers, brothers who are born for Casinos!
Roman is new in town, joining his older brother Rick in the city that never sleeps – he is a dealer, yet something is missing from his life. When Rick gives him a referral to an exclusive matchmaking service FANTA-C, known for providing one night stands – you tell them the exact kind of partner you want, and they provide them to you (It sounds really better than I am making it to be!).
Roman needs someone who can stimulate him, emotionally, physically and intellectually – he wants something better than most woman found in the city, so even though he is a bit wary, he still uses the referral by Rick, because he doesn’t see the harm in trying.
Sloan on the other hand, is one of the most well known Card Players in Vegas, and she is so damn tired of men being scared off by her strong personality – she NEEDS a man who will be strong in the face of her personality, her attitude and her lifestyle. So she decides on a night of getting exactly what she wants through FANTA – C.
But both Roman and Sloan get something even better than they expected. They get each other and it was absolutely brilliant to read about this pair!
I loved Ms. Probst’s writing style – it is simple and effective in a way that it feels more of a full length novel instead of short quick read. She makes the perfect mixture of angst, feelings and plot that sometimes even the full length novel don’t quite get it!
While I actually loved reading about Roman and Sloane, what would have made this better would have been an interaction between Roman and his brothers, a show of familial bonding which is one of the main reasons why I love reading about brothers.
Yes, I do understand that this a short novella, but even few heartfelt scene between all the brothers would have made an amazing read into a brilliant one!
