Game of Chance by Erika Wilde


Game of Chance by Erika Wilde
Publication Date: June 8th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance

A former Marine and Las Vegas vice cop, Nathan Fox has seen it all and then some. Heading up security for the Onyx Casino is tame compared to his dark past, but it's not his only job. Working for the Reliance Group is his real passion project. His current case: a missing woman. His mission: to find her. Easy enough, until he finds himself tangled up with sexy Nicole Hutton, a stubborn—and stunning—journalist who's nosed her way into his investigation . . . and into his dirty, erotic fantasies.
Resisting Nicole is impossible, and he soon discovers that in this dangerous high stakes game of chance, falling in love is the greatest risk of all.

Game of Chance, book one of the Vegas Heat series, is a Contemporary Romance that is a combination of hot seduction & criminal thriller in one.  For Nathan & Nicole, meeting under unusual circumstances one night in Las Vegas results in an immediate attraction & an equally unusual opportunity to achieve personal goals - to stop injustice, right a wrong, find forgiveness, save a young woman from her demons - goals that might be very mutual.

Told in third person, from dual perspectives, this is a super hot romance & intriguing criminal thriller that is well written on both accounts.  Nathan's bad-boy, enticing charm, honorable with a fierce ability to protect qualities, make his character irresistible.  Nicole was "a small-town girl with stars in her eyes and big dreams in her heart" who learned a cruel life lesson leaving her mistrusting & guarded, but making her strong, independent & courageous enough to stand up for what she believes in.  I really appreciate the way some of the sensitive subject matter was handled realistically by author Erika Wilde.  The story unfolds at the perfect pace & doesn't slow from beginning to it's oh-so twisty end.  

Although each book in the Vegas Heat series can be read as a standalone, I'm looking forward to book two, Take a Chance coming soon.

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
