Betting on Cinderella by Petie McCarty #Review
Posted by brriske
Garrett Tucker inherits his grandfather’s casino empire and steps into the reclusive billionaire’s shoes as the “Prince of Vegas.” His first act is to buy a bankrupt casino in Biloxi. When he discovers embezzling in his new operation, Garrett goes undercover. His prime suspect is the new finance supervisor–the spitfire brunette who stole his heart at first sight.
Andi Ryan moves to Biloxi to care for her godmother and takes a job as finance supervisor for the renovated Bayou Princess casino. She discovers someone is skimming from the till and starts her own investigation, worried she will be blamed for the theft when the new owner discovers her godmother has a gambling addiction.
Garrett’s rival Vegas competitor has sent in a spy to ruin the Bayou Princess, and Garrett and Andi are forced to work together to prove her innocence and discover the identity of their casino spy.
This was a really interesting story! While it sticks to your basic boy-meets-girl romance, it’s the back stories and intrigues the author tosses in that really make it awesome! The characters attracted me instantly, the heroine is sweet but not completely incapable of having a backbone and the hunk is thoughtful but not perfect.
As he struggles with personal tragedy and sudden changes, Garrett is in danger of missing out on a fantastic woman. Can he come to his senses and balance both business and pleasure? Will she forgive him for his deception, cause you KNOW she will find out. They always do!
As an independent reviewer for Romance Authors that Rock, I gave this one a full five hearts for touching mine several times! It’s got a few steamy spots, so keep the kids supervised!
