I make my living as a hustler, and I'm great at it. I don’t have a single tell and I use that to my advantage to manipulate any situation. I’ve always known what a person is about to do before they’ve even decided.
That is, until I met Penelope. I can’t get a read on her, and what’s worse, she doesn’t want anything to do with me. Which only makes me want her more.
Now I’m in for the hardest hustle of my life. Somehow I have to convince her she belongs with me. Good thing I’m always up for a challenge.
Hustler is a new adult contemporary romance that takes place in a Las Vegas casino. It is co-authored by Megan Quinn and Jessica Prince. I am not 100% sure, but I think that it is going to be a series, modeled where each of the books is about a different couple. (and if that is the case, I have a very, very strong suspicion who the next book will be about. I liked Hustler. I had a couple of issues with some of characters and the start of the story, but I warmed up to all of them and by the end I was very invested in Gavin and Nell’s story. I do have to say, right off the bat, that I don’t care for the cover of the book. I just don’t love to see naked guys on the cover of books because I think it sends the wrong message. (But that is a whole other discussion.) I am sure that a lot of readers love some eye candy, and while I agree that it is pleasing to the eye, I just don’t want to see it on book covers.
I liked Nell right off the bat. I thought she was the perfect amount of spunky and sweet. Gavin, not so much. Don’t get me wrong he certainly did grow on me, but at first he got on my nerves. I thought he was too showy, too in your face, too crass, and just plain too much. As he started to genuinely like Nell, I started to like him more and more. That was the best surprise of Hustler for me. Watching my opinion of Gavin change as I read more about him.
Hustler, like Gavin, grew on me the more I read. I ended up rooting for Gavin and Nell. Bottom line: If you like crass, cocky and in your face characters, you and Gavin will hit it off immediately. And if billionaire romances are your thing, I think Hustler is a great read for you to check out. I enjoyed this one. it isn’t a favorite of mine, but it is a good read.
