About the book
Garrett Tucker inherits his grandfather's casino empire and steps into the reclusive billionaire's shoes as the "Prince of Vegas." His first act is to buy and renovate a bankrupt casino in Biloxi. When he discovers embezzling in his new operation, Garrett goes in undercover. His number one suspect is the new finance supervisor.
Andi Ryan moves to Biloxi to care for her godmother and takes a job as finance supervisor for the renovated Bayou Princess casino. She discovers someone is skimming from the till and starts her own investigation, worried she will be blamed for the theft when the new owner discovers her godmother has a costly gambling addiction.
Garrett’s rival Vegas competitor has sent a spy in to ruin the Bayou Princess, and Garrett and Andi are forced to work together to prove her innocence and discover the identity of their casino spy.
Read an excerpt
She made a beeline for the door, and Garrett grabbed her arm. “Oh, no you don’t. I want to talk to you. I’ve been trying to talk to you all day.”
The tug on her arm lit the fuse. “Well, I’m not talking to you. Don’t bother trying to justify dating Irene, I wouldn’t believe you. She bragged to everyone in the office that you two were out till the wee hours. You’re a player, Garrett, and Irene can help you.”
“What?” he roared.
“Oh, forget it.” She jerked her arm free. “You want to sleep with her? Go ahead. You made your bed, now you can lie in it. Good luck, you’re going to need it.”
Before the last word left her mouth, he yanked her up against his hard chest. “Stop it, Andi. Just stop it.”
His lips silenced her retort. His kiss gentled, though she could feel him tremble with anger. His palms cradled her cheeks, and his tongue teased at her lower lip, urging her to open for him. God forgive her, she did. She could not resist this man.
She had missed Garrett—his smile, his twinkling eyes, his glorious scent, and especially his taste. She knuckled her fingers into the curls at his nape to hold him in the kiss. His tongue caressed hers with a slow, sensual rhythm that turned her knees to water. She had dreamed of this kiss, night after night, in the month he was gone.
Had he kissed Irene like this? The dark thought chilled like a bucket of cold water. She tried to wrestle free, but he held her fast.
“The only one I need is you,” he whispered against her lips.
Her heart desperately wanted to believe him, her body wanted to sink back into another nerve-tingling kiss, and her too-wary head conjured up an image of him leaving with Irene. Just last night. The hurt and heartache roared back to life all over again.
She shoved him back, hating the tears piling up in her eyes. “I don’t believe you, and I don’t trust you.”
She stumbled for the door, and he made a grab for her. “No, Andi, wait!”
And I thought
I loved Betting on Cinderella. Although some parts were
predictable. This was just a good story and a sweet romance.
Once Andi and Garrett get past all the drama, lies and deception
the story ends Happily Ever After for them.
I really enjoyed
all most of the characters.
Who could even 'like' Andi's mean stepsisters and stepmother?
The rest of the characters are charming and just make you like them.
From Garrett's friend Aiden who has 'his back' to Lilly and Rhett
the newlyweds. Garrett and Andi almost meet at the wedding.
Bust as fate would have it Andi leaves before Garrett has a chance of actually speaking to her. With no slipper left behind he is
frustrated to have lost the chance to meet the elusive woman.
But fate intervenes again. Which turns out not to be 'fate' after all but a little matchmaking.
There are plenty of twists and turns in the story.
And you might be surprised at the ending and happy that it all worked out.
Betting on Cinderella was a great romance. I will be reading the remaining books in this series.
I received a complimentary copy from Goddess Fish Promos.
