Last Chance (Vegas Heat #3) by Erika Wilde





As the Executive Casino Hostess for The Onyx in Las Vegas, Valerie Downing is always on the lookout for the night's biggest winners. When she spots a man―one of the sexiest she's ever laid eyes on―generating huge excitement at the craps table, she knows she's in luck. Her goal: To make sure the high rollers stay at her hotel, and that any further gambling is invested right back into the casino. His aim: To enjoy some other "perks" that Valerie might have to offer…

Turns out Chase Pierson is already a VIP guest who happens to be working with Valerie's boss on a top-secret mission for the Reliance Group―one for which she too has been recruited because of her psychic abilities. But Valerie, bold and gorgeous as she is, is first and foremost a professional. No fraternizing with Onyx clientele is her motto…except this hard-bodied, infuriatingly charming client is tempting her to break all the rules.

LAST CHANCE contains light paranormal elements (heroine has psychic abilities)





2.5 Stars


I kind of finished this a couple of days ago but as it isn’t entirely for me it was hard to figure out what to write in my review. 


This is just not my cuppa and I would like to add that I am in the minority here. I usually know my taste in books but sometimes I just want to try something new. It can either be epic or in this case not so much.


There is a lot of positive aspects to the book. I do consider the book to be well written. The characters are in-depth and complex although I did find them to be somewhat annoying.


I enjoyed the light paranormal element it added more excitement to the plot of the book. Our MC are to find Al Capone's cane as it is supposed to lead to a hidden treasure of immense value.  

And here comes my but... 

For me the book just dragged in places and picked up and I was loving it but went back to a snail pace. The author couldn't get the balance right IMO. It is repetitive in places and I found the characters to be somewhat strenuous.


Just because I didn't like Last Chance doesn't mean that you guys won't. Give it a go.
