Date Read: January 31st 2017

Goodreads

Their love was always in the cards.He should have thrown her out. But when club owner Alexander Lavoie catches a mysterious blonde counting cards at his vingt-et-un table, he's more intrigued than angry. He has to see more of this beauty—in his club, in his office, in his bed. But first he'll have to devise a proposition she can't turn down.

Gossip said he was an assassin.Common sense told her to stay away. But Angelique Archer was desperate, and Lavoie's club offered a surefire way to make quick money—until she got caught. Instead of throwing her out though, the devil offers her a deal: come work for him. Refusing him means facing starvation, but with a man so sinfully handsome and fiercely protective, keeping things professional might prove impossible.

I love Alex Lavoie! I liked him in the first 2 books of this series, but when he falls for Angelique, he falls hard. Alex owns a gambling club and is a partner with his sisters in Chegarre & Associates, a firm that helps people in troublesome situations – for a price.
 
Lady Angelique Archer and her brothers have fallen on hard times. She has an exceptional talent with numbers and decides the best way to make money is to play at Alex’s club. He realizes her talent and that she needs the money, so he hires her to deal at his club. She is attracted to him and him to her, but he doesn’t believe in love. Or so he says.
 
When her brother is arrested for murder under strange circumstances, Alex and his associates start considering why she and her brothers inherited almost nothing. Who would have a reason to set him up? As he discovers more and tries to protect Angelique, the plot gets very good. And of course, eventually there is a HEA.
 
I love this book – couldn’t put it down. I don’t like plot spoilers so I hope you’ll read this book. I believe you’ll enjoy it. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for allowing me an ARC.
