Nov 11, Nate rated it it was amazing. I'm voluntarily leaving an honest review for a copy of the book. Nov 02, Melissa Ledet rated it it was amazing. Betting on Love is a hot intense read. Love how Hadley and Dominic were instantly attracted to each other and how they stop at nothing to protect to each from harm. Exciting, action packed and sexy. Nov 14, Mary Clark rated it it was amazing. I really enjoyed this story as it had lots of intrigue and kept me interested throughout.
I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending this book. If there is one rule that holds true, it is that the house always wins. There is something different about Hadley, something measured; she knows exactly what she is doing. Someone winning big and drawing attention is a red flag, but Hadley manages to skirt around any suspicion and Dominick has no reason to step in and intervene yet.
Even without the act Hadley is putting on, there is no question that she is a knockout; her stride, confidence and cunning entices him. While Hadley is calculating, so is Dominick as he follows her, striding up with every bit of confidence and poise the same as her. Everything about Hadley, both natural and intentional, is perfectly designed to transform her into a trap and she knows exactly what she does to people, especially men. Skilled in both math and psychology, Hadley is good at reading people and their intentions.
Instead of finishing school, she was given a much more tantalizing offer; to become a card-counting casino maven. But the moment Hadley meets Dominick she knows he is more complicated than she realizes; he makes her nervous, which is new and unusual, even though she manages to retain her trademark aloofness. Hadley and Dominick convince their respective bosses to sit down for a glamorous, winner take all card game.
It is a means of resolving their long time standoff. As long as they stayed at odds with one another, neither of them could move forward and this card game is designed to break the stalemate. Once this is set in motion, all they have to do is watch as everything begins to unfold. A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review.
I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion. Nov 05, Renee rated it it was amazing. When Hadley walks into the casino with a pile of chips, a smirk on her beautiful lips, and a swivel to those perfectly curved hips, I start questioning if I've been playing my hand all wrong. She's too cool for this world.
I can't let her walk out of my life anymore than my boss will let the money leave the casino. A night of wild passion awakens me to what I've been missing in my life.. For the last ten years, I've been living under the Mafia's thumb, pulling the trigger towards the bums and con artists who think they can take my boss' cash. Smart enough to catch a cheat, and ruthless enough to bloody some knuckles, with way to being a made man is almost certain. Except, in the Mafia, nothing is certain until it's a done deal.
And when I find out she's the next target to disappear? She's going to be mine. This is the story of Hadley and Dominick. She likes to travel the world and count cards and make a ton of money for her boss.
He is a ex military man who works security for a Vegas casino and the mafia. The story gets even more interesting when you find out that Jerry is Dominick's boss and Carl who is Hadley's boss and owes Jerry a lot of money. Upon seeing Hadley Dominick decides to follow her and that leads to one amazing life changing night of passion but no sharing of the details.
When they do finally figure out what is going on they make the perfect team to take back their lives for the most controlling men and get their lives back. You will not be able to put this book down. Dominick and Hadley are two characters that I fell in love with and couldn't wait to find out what happened with them. You do not want to miss this book. It is simply amazing!!!

I loved how strong Haley was, not showing any fear and being just as cunning as beautiful. These two had sparks and I loved how Dom treated her with respect and listened to her plans, trusting her in her abilities. A read with some suspense, action and a great HEA for the two, and the only thing that bothered me was Carl, who seemed to be OK after the beating he got which confused me since it seemed like it was only days till the showdown.
Nov 01, Brenda Motza rated it it was amazing. Whew, how can you not 5 star this read? Alexis has a way with mafia stories and I love each and every one of them. Hadley has had a thing for math for a long time and has come to find out that counting cards in Vegas can net her a chunk of change. But then she finds herself, along with other very smart people, working for a man who is sending them around town raking in the cash for him.

Dominick is the enforcer for a mob boss who we find out that Hadley's boss owes a lot of money too. Dominick is instantly smitten with the red head walking into his casino heading straight for the tables. Well, let's keep an eye on this beauty, who seems to be more than just eye candy.
The heat between Hadley and Dominick were off the charts smoking hot and their story is one that I couldn't stop reading. If my Kindle were actual paper pages, I would have gotten a paper cut flipping them so fast. A total must read!
