The first book I read by Lexi C Foss was The Prince’s Game, the predecessor to this and first in the Mershano series. I never thought I'd love a book about a reality TV show, but the author has such a fantastic writing style, it draws you in and holds you tight. When I realised The Charmers Gambit (which can be read as a standalone) was to be about Evan's cousin Will and Sarah's best friend Rachel, it was an absolute must read for me, as are all this authors books now.
Rachel, a dedicated, talented lawyer, is running from her past, but the past has a habit of catching up and threatens any form of peace or happiness. She has no room for men or relationships but when she meets Will Mershano whilst checking through a contract as a favour for her best friend, she starts to realise he is a man that won't be pushed away and won't give up on her no matter what.
I loved the banter between Will and Rachel, the story builds throughout as the chemistry between them heats up and the danger increases threatening them both. Will is powerful, rich and unrelenting, the kind of man Rachel is both attracted to and terrified of. Can she overcome the darkness of her past as it collides with the present and learn to trust the one man who wants the very best for her?
There are a lot of potential book boyfriends out there, but every now and then a very special one comes along with that something extra. I have to admit, Will has stolen a little piece of my heart. What a perfect mix of alpha, dominant, protective, caring, observant, gorgeous and sinfully hot sexiness he is.
I loved The Charmers Gambit, it was just fab and I am totally in love with Will. I loved Rachel too (but definitely not in the same way) they were well suited which resulted in a completely unputdownable book for me. Lexi C. Foss has an amazing talent for writing and I highly recommend this book. Five hot Will Mershano stars!!!
If I left my review at that, I'm pretty sure you guys who have read it will readily agree that nothing more needs to be said in retrospect. I mean it's Will Mershano. Actually, let me try to up it a little. Will Mershano and a vineyard. Actually I bet I can do one better. Will Mershano, a vineyard and two wine glasses. But you know what would make that scenario absolute perfection? A naked Will Mershano, a vineyard and two wine glasses. With me as his love interest.
Sadly, that's not the case, well the me part anyway. No his love interest in this is the kind of uptight Rachel. Although, to be fair, I can't even hate her. She's the kind of woman who you want to hate but can't. Both of them together just fits. To quote Phoebe Buffay, she's his lobster and vice versa. The Charmer's Gambit has a slight dark theme in it. Rachel has a past that she can't seem to escape. Wherever she turns and becomes even vaguely happy, it's always there waiting to pull her back down. Enter Will. He helps Rachel see that there is a way to escape, she just has to take a leap of faith.
I'm going to admit and say I think I prefer this story to that of The Prince's Game and I really loved that story. In TCG however I just felt it was more rugged and growly. Not to impugn that Evan wasn't a hard worker, he was. I just felt that Will was more of a manual labourer than Evan and it's a quality that I'm attracted to.
The storyline itself just popped. I had this mental image of me being there. I felt that I was dealing with these situations and feelings myself. It's a great thing when an author can make you believe that you're part of the story.
I really enjoyed reading this story and Will and Rachel's journey. I cannot wait to see where the author takes the next story.
I could leave my review there, and that would say everything about how I felt about our hero, but that would be short-changing this wonderful novel that I absolutely devoured in one sitting.
Will is a tenacious wine-merchant millionaire who has his sights set on uptight lawyer, Rachel. But unlike a lot of guys who'd barrel in there and probably ruin their chances to win the girl, Will plays the long game. And my goodness, the clever begger, he ends up with Rachel eating out of his hand and chasing him!
But Rachel has a secret, an ex who still thinks she's his. He's creepy, he's rotten to the core, he's no blooming Will Mershano that's for sure!
Slowly, Will teases from Rachel the real person beneath the veneer she's carefully constructed, and my goodness, I love him for it.
I don't want to say too much more as that would spoil the plot, but this book gave me all the feels. And even though it's in a series, you don't have to have read the prequel (The Prince's Game) to enjoy it. However, do go and read that first book, because it's a really great read.
But for me, The Charmer's Gambit is a step up. It's wonderful. Grab yours now. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
