Smart and sizzlingly sexy!
This book has everything I look for in a great read. A beautifully crafted suspenseful storyline that keeps the threat of danger to our heroine Bridget front and center while they both straddle the line between law and order. Complicating matters is the deliciously hot and sizzling sexual chemistry between Bridget and Ethan that builds to a fever pitch forcing him to choose a life with Bridget or his position as Chief of Police. With dangerous characters and corruption around every corner will this couple stay and fight for their love or bend to the pressure and walk away? Smart and fast paced, this storyline deserves 5 stars. I read a complimentary copy of this book and all opinions expressed in my voluntary review are completely my own
The Police Chief and the Bookie
The Devil's Gamble is my new favorite in the Lost Coast Harbor series. Bridget Donnelly and Ethan Ford are on fire with each other from the beginning with their conflict stemming from his position as the new Police Chief since she runs the town's illegal bookie operation. He's there to clean up the city after the previous chief was dishonest and has fears that their relationship will compromise his ethics in his position. Someone is secretly threatening Bridget which may have to do with her bookmaking enterprise and/or her home's proximity to an illegal marijuana grow operation. This was a complex romance with a number of intertwined plot lines throughout. I couldn't put it down until I finished reading it.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
