Character development: ☺️🥸😎😘🤨
The heroine: Kit Bishop – Preston hurt her like no other. Kit quit college and was on a downward spiral of partying and debauchery for nearly three years before she cleaned up her act. Now she has a job she likes and a female boss she likes even more.
The Hero(es): Preston Holden – he quit Yale and moved to Vegas to become a gambler for the Mob after his father died. He was determined to not rely on his brother, who had always rescued him from the sticky situations his gambling got him into.
The story: Preston and Kit had a connection that neither one of them could deny and though they brought each other pain in the past, they have a trust in each other that they couldn’t find with anyone else.
When Kit finds out that her Grandmother might cut her out of the will which consisted of her parent’s money and instead give it to her Uncle who she suspects of causing their deaths, she is determined to not allow that to happen. Even if it means bowing to her nanna’s demands and marrying a man. So when Preston suddenly appears back in her life it seems like fate.
I have to say that I usually don’t like the slow burn romance. Though if they are done right, it can really be a great way to build a lasting relationship in a story. I like seeing the movement of friends (or enemies) to lovers in a way that has all the feels. You can really see the yearning and love growing between two people.
I didn’t know how this one would go, or if I would even like it since the heroine is gay. I am not gay, but I tend to think if you are gay you are gay and can’t be changed. But then I can see the argument of falling in love with a person regardless of sexuality and how that love can turn into more. I don’t know if this could happen in real life, but I really like the way it is happening in this series. Kit is definitely struggling with her sexuality because of what she feels for Preston and I like how that happens in this story.
