Title: Double Down
Author: Alessandra Torre
Series: All In Duet #2
Release Date: June 18, 2018
The stunning conclusion to the All In Duet...

In Vegas, there was one man who was off limits. One man… and I fell for him. 

I knew there were risks. Still, I played the game. When Dario Capece called, I answered. When he beckoned, I came. When he broke all my rules, I looked the other way. 

I knew there were risks. I just never realized they included death. 

*Note, this book is the second and final book in the All In Duet. It should be read After Even Money.
I LOVED this ending to the All In Duet. It was twisty, raw and gritty. Everything that book one had setup, and took it a million miles beyond my expectations. Dario and Bell had a lot of heartache and growing to do to get where this book ends, but they did it, and when they could have taken easy road and just called it quits, their utter obsession with each other and their love kept them strong and dedicated.

Double Down is one of those heart-racing books that left me breathless at times, had me fearful at others, and made my heart happy. It encompasses ALL of the feels. I will say, as much as I loved this book, the reason for the lack of the fifth star is only because after everything Dario and Bell go through, I wanted a more definitive ending for them. They, in and of themselves in their relationship, are solid in the end. But there is an unresolved issue, that I felt like really needed to be resolved to give them the ending they deserved.

HOWEVER, to combat my own opinion, it was also almost fitting that it wasn't resolved BECAUSE of their journey. I'm just one of those softy readers that desperately needed a happily ever after ending, not a happy for now ending. Even given that information, I LOVED this book, and the duet in its entirety and think it is MORE than well worth the read. It's gripping, and seductive and amazing. Truly this book rounds out a duet that I think most readers would love and devour!

Happy Reading!

Title: Even Money
Author: Alessandra Torre
Series: All In #1
Release Date: June 2, 2018
From NYT Bestseller Alessandra Torre comes a suspenseful and seductive duet...

Sometimes it only takes a minute. A connection of eyes across a room, a quickened heartbeat, and everything changes.

I was a cocktail waitress with a fondness for partying and meaningless hook-ups.

He owned half of Vegas, with the reputation to match.

I should have turned away. Instead, I stepped closer.

Then, the lies started. Rumors spread. Stalking commenced. Someone died.

None of it stopped me from falling in love.
