Based on a true story.
Faced with graduating with over 100,000 dollars in student loan debt, University of Miami freshman Cameron McKinney starts the largest sports betting ring in campus history. Business booms, supplying him with thousands of dollars of tax-free cash per week and the connections to experience South Beach nightlife as a VIP. Cameron raises the stakes, signing up hundreds of customers and taking on a group of jet-setting international bettors. As his operation grows, so does his ego. His stormy relationship with Grace Cooper, the daughter of a prominent Republican Party lobbyist, takes its toll on the business, and his business partner's reckless lifestyle threatens to bring him down completely. High Rollers gives a window into lifestyles of the young and rich, exploring the consequences of ambition, wealth and relationships.
I like this book. Cameron McKinney is a really vulnerable guy, but he's so powerful at the same time, almost like a young Jay Gatsby in a way. The way his relationship develops with Grace is really cool in parallel with his illegal business. Based on a true story, but not boring.
-Hilarious, true descriptions of Miami.
-Interesting look at how super-rich people live, through dialogue and description.
-Very real-world view of college life, student loans, and relationships.
-Highly complex, intelligent and relatable protagonist.
-Professionally published, not full of typos and syntax errors.
-The prose is somewhat bare at times. I would give the prose a B+, not sparkling A+ literary material.
-Would like to see more development of Dylan's character.
