The Big Gamble

ARC for honest review with no compensation 4.5 stars

The Big Gamble by Kathryn Shay is book 1 in her new short stories series called Lucky Lady Casino Short Stories.

What a quick, fun read about two lonely people who meet at the Lucky Lady Casino to escape the pressures of their every life.

John and Jane first meet on a Friday night, play the slots beside each other and strike up a conversation but decided to only use their first name and no sharing of personal information. As weeks go by things between them start changing but will they follow their hearts and open up or continue just as they are...nothing personal??

Perfect title!

Once again Katherine Shay scores a hit! The Big Gamble is a short but sweet story about two people meeting in a casino and although both have reasons to not get involved, they do.
