This was yet another fantastic novel from this author. Having now read numerous books by Alannah Carbonneau I can safely say she's one of my top go to authors and I will not hesitate to one click any new release she produces as I know I'm guaranteed an amazing few hours immersed deep in another world that she has magically created.
This story follows Nelena a young woman that on the day of her wedding realises her life isn't really her own. In a mad turn of events she flees her fiancé the supposed love of her life. In an attempt to find herself she heads for the bright lights of Las Vegas with her best friend in tow. Determined to live a little and be the Nelena know one expects her to be she throws caution to the wind and plays her wild card. Instead of looking for Mr Right she looks for Mr Right Now. Only she meets Mr Wright!!
Kade Wright isn't looking for anything permanent he's quite happy notching up conquests, that is until Nelena. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas right? ....but what happens if it's not that simple?
This book had me gripped from the start and so excited at how it developed I was so engrossed I didn't realise I was nearing the end then suddenly I was screaming !! The cliffhanger was upon me before I knew it and I'm left thinking Alannah Carbonneau you wicked wicked woman....I can't believe you shocked me like that !!
Omg I really really really can't wait for the next in the series ......please say it's not too long to wait !!
Well, well, well! What a surprise from the author of Donnelley Brother’s series. She has always been descriptive in the bedroom department but somehow managed to titillate us to extremes for those hot, steamy scenes. Not so here folks! When I jumped into the book, I didn’t have to wait too long before my reading glasses started steaming up! She’s changed her style and I like it… a lot. A storyline which is well-plotted can only be the recipe for a good read.
The heroine in this story has made a decision. And just in time, too! How she’s going to handle the consequences of a sham of a relationship with her cheating ex is quite brave on her part. A surprise trip organised by her bestie, Kali, to Vegas for two weeks conjures up an interesting scenario to say the least. In more ways than one, Nelena is quite the opposite of her worldly-wise… nudge nudge, wink wink, say no more friend!
Quote ~ Kali: "And we're going to find me a hot little woman who can bend her body in ways the Devil himself can't imagine."
Kali loves her like a sister and she refuses to sit back and watch her friend wallow in her sorrows. Even Lena’s father encourages her to let her hair down, so off they trot to sin city. Many a true word spoken in jest when Kali jokes about Lena finding the ideal Mr. Right to paint the town red with. Not only do Kali’s eccentricities abound and had me laughing out loud, but also her concern for Lena’s well being is foremost and well described.
Quote ~ Dad: "Letting loose won't kill you, Nelena. It'll help you live." He winked. "Take the advice an old man offers you."
Hmm, is Mr. Kade Wright Mr. Right or Mr. Wrong? This drop-dead gorgeous hunk of an Alpha male who happens to live and work as a professional dancer in Vegas, is an expert one-night-stander; a player in the first degree. He’s carrying enough emotional baggage around with him to sink a ship. However, sparks fly between them as soon as they set eyes on each other, and a super-hot, scorching no strings attached fourteen day fling kicks off with carnal lust! In spite the fact that their desires are insatiable, it is a really romantic love story with a twist and a half. Ooh, yes, and what a surprise Kade is in for!
Quote ~ Kade: "Why the ***k hadn't she told me?"
This highly erotic first book in the Wild Card series which overflows with impassioned thoughts and incredible banter, kept me on my toes so much that I read it in one sitting. In fact, as I really liked the secondary characters, Kali and Kade’s loyal friend, Allie, I was wondering if the author might even consider writing about them! Now the cliffy… it’s a biggy with a capital B. Regardless whether you shout and scream at your Kindle, the only option left is to play the waiting game for book two. The only tinsy winsy hitch in the book was I found it a little short. Apart from this minor issue, Ms Carbonneau deserves a hearty Bravo!
Quote ~ Kade: "Are you feeling reward, or punishment Red?"
I completed the book but was just left feeling ‘meh’ at the end and not particularly caring one way or the other what happened with them or that it was a cliff hanger ending…….
Several things did not work for me.
The first was that a 23 year old girl who has saved her virginity as a gift for her husband, something important enough to her that in four years of dating she never gave up to the man she planned to spend the rest of her life with, then having left him at the altar throws it away on her first night in Vegas.
The second was that Kade used to manage a chain of hotels, fully fledged white collar worker in a corporate environment but when his heart gets broken four years previously he runs away to Vegas to be a dancer. Now, professional dancers who (the implication is) headline shows have to rehearse damned hard, which in his two week fling with Nelena is never mentioned and not forgetting that these people have danced for years to get where they are, loads of blood, sweat and tears involved, it’s not just done for fun and then wham bam they get a career out of it.
My third niggle was that for two girls on their first visit to Vegas, given how ‘love or loathe it’ the place is, it does inspire a range of feelings and everyone explores to some extent whilst there, but very little mention of it was made which just spoilt the flow for me.
The fourth was that the scenes between Kade and Nelena, especially the sex, were just a little too descriptive, flowery and superfluous so, as stated, I just ceased to care about them as a couple - no feels or connection.
There is a cliff hanger ending which I didn’t expect but I won’t be picking up the second book. Many readers will enjoy it I’m sure but it’s not a fit for me.
