Game of Chance by Erika Wilde Publication Date: June 8th, 2017 Genre: Contemporary Romance
Game of Chance, a sexy STANDALONE from Erika Wilde is now live!!!
A former Marine and Las Vegas vice cop, Nathan Fox has seen it all and then some. Heading up security for the Onyx Casino is tame compared to his dark past, but it's not his only job. Working for the Reliance Group is his real passion project. His current case: a missing woman. His mission: to find her. Easy enough, until he finds himself tangled up with sexy Nicole Hutton, a stubborn—and stunning—journalist who's nosed her way into his investigation . . . and into his dirty, erotic fantasies.
Resisting Nicole is impossible, and he soon discovers that in this dangerous high stakes game of chance, falling in love is the greatest risk of all.
I really liked Nicole right from the start. She's a confident woman, professionally and personally. She's trying to catch her big break as a journalist and when she's presented an opportunity-albeit very accidentally-she grabs it and runs with it. I liked that Nicole wasn't looking for a relationship-a character trait that is usually assigned to the male characters in romance novels-so that was refreshing. Her growth and strength in this book was good to me.
Nathan was hot! He has some issues from his past (who doesn't) but has such a good heart. He's not looking for a relationship either so when he agrees to do something for a friend and winds up meeting Nicole, it's no surprise that they tumble into bed after. But it's how they act around each other after that I enjoyed. Watching Nathan realize that he could be happy, and should be happy was very satisfying.
These two had insane chemistry. I felt it and believed in it right from the very beginning. I feel that their relationship was paced exactly right for them which was great. Nothing felt rushed or forgotten for me there.
I will say this book has some issues that could be triggers for some (sex trafficking). It's hard to say without spoiling it, as the blurb doesn't imply it-and I almost wish it had. I will say the issues were well presented and well written, I just wasn't expecting to have them as a main focus. I applaud the author for not shying away from a prevalent topic.
This book is a great start to this author's Vegas Heat trilogy. It's full of heat and suspense. I would recommend this title and look forward to the next in the series.
