A sexy new standalone contemporary romance from New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans.
It started as a game.
We flirted. We played. Most importantly—we won.
Then I discovered who he was: Gambler. Famous playboy. Silver-eyed player who never plays to lose.
…And my best friend’s soon-to-be brother in law, Cullen Carmichael.
He needed a good luck charm, I needed a distraction.
So we made a gamble and set off for Vegas—but pretty soon—I was in too deep.
My heart, soul, and body weren't supposed to be part of the deal.
But somewhere between big wins and long nights, my house of cards started to tumble.
What was this devil with those piercing eyes doing to me?
I’d given up on love, but the wicked, all-in Cullen Carmichael was upping the ante and wouldn’t stop until he’d won it all.
Exciting, unexpected journey to find your true desire
Fabulous. This story surprised me several times as I got to experience Wynn and Cullen, an unlikely pair. Wynn has given up on ever finding the one. She has been in several relationships and the last one, well, sort of shattered her when Emmett just let her go. Now, there is more to the story which is gut wrenching for Wynn. When she ends up at an underground poker game and is ‘sold’ as part of the bet to Playboy, well, she feels she’s hit the all-time low. Of course, she didn’t recognize Playboy as her best friend’s brother-in-law, Cullen. Cullen is a professional gambler and everyone sees him as a ‘player’ in all areas of his life. His fascination with Wynn, his new luck, is all consuming but Wynn needs a distraction so when they make a bet, she goes with him to Vegas. There are so many layers to this romance that starts out as a fling based on a crazy bet. I loved that they both really want love in their lives but have struggled to find it. There is a beautiful freedom and joy when they are together that was fun to experience. But the ultimate is when Cullen gives Wynn what she truly desires and doesn’t believe she will ever have, that was pure magic.
When art gallery owner Wynn meets professional gambler Cullen, while on a date, the sparks fly and the bet is on!! I love Cullen and Wynn, he’s a complex totally hot alpha and she’s a beautiful,intelligent woman,both looking for that missing piece. Perfect light read with plenty of sizzle,witty banter,and smoking hot romance!
You can’t lose with Cullen
I was really taken with Wynn and Cullen's story. Wynn's name and Cullen's occupation couldn't have been better suited for one another. Brilliant planning Ms. Evans! Love it!
Wynn was not a one-night stand girl, but something about Cullen called to her. She thought she knew what she was getting into when she made a bet with the Playboy, but little did she know that she was making a bet of a lifetime!
Cullen didn't do relationships. His life was solely focused on the next big game and his winnings. He had been burned in relationships before and didn't care to repeat the hurt. When he meets Wynn, he can't get her out of his mind. He patiently bides his time until he gets his shot.
This story really spoke to me. Cullen was a playboy, but yet has a vulnerability to him. Wynn believed herself to be damaged goods and really didn't think anyone would want a relationship with her. These two perfectly flawed people were absolutely perfect for one another. I truly enjoyed their story as they found their way to each other. Great read!
