Some Odds are Meant to be Played...
PLACE YOUR BET
The Hotel Rodeo in Las Vegas has seen better days, but managing partner Ty Morgan has come up with a way to return it to its former glory. His plan looks promising until the unthinkable happens. Suddenly Ty is working for the boss’s daughter. And Miss Monica Brandt, hot as she may be, doesn’t share his vision…
ROLL THE DICE
She left a fabulous career and a frustrated fiancé in New York to move to Vegas and save her father’s investment. But now Monica is locking horns with a sexy cowboy-turned-businessman. What does Ty think he can do that she can’t? All Monica knows is that she doesn’t dare trust him—or is it herself she doesn’t trust...
The battle lines are drawn. The stakes are high. And the attraction can’t be denied—especially the more closely Ty and Monica have to work together. Some odds are just meant to be played, and with chemistry this electric, it may be time to grab life by the horns…
Hell on Heels is the first book in the adult contemporary romance series, Hotel Rodeo by Victoria Vane. It is the story of two bull headed, stubborn individuals named Monica and Ty. Right from the start, I knew this was going to be a back and forth battle between the two of them. And I was right-it sure is a fiery story. This series is a bit of an interesting setup. Books 1 and 2 are both about Ty and Monica, so there is a cliff-hanger at the end of this one. And then, book 3 is about another couple. (I am unsure if their story is going to be a one or two book deal.) But Hell on Heels is a fun read that is very quick. You could easily read books 1 and 2 in one day if you wanted to wrap up Monica and Ty’s story. I kind of wish I had book 2 on hand, so I could do just that.
Hell on Heels deals with a Las Vegas hotel that is either going to be revitalized or sold. And I bet you can guess that Monica and Ty come up on opposite sides of this decision. I really enjoyed the bickering/bantering and full out fighting between Monica and Ty. It was a fun read, and I think I would like to continue on to book 2, but I honestly don’t know if I would continue on to book3. I am interested to finish out Ty’s story with Monica, but I can’t stand Delaney (Ty’s ex wife) so I am not to keen on reading her story.
Bottom line: Hell on Heels is a fun and fiery read between two people with very dominant personalities. If you like the clashing on alphas, this is the book for you. Ty and Monica are both used to being in charge, and that was interesting to watch play out. I liked this book, but I didn’t love it. No real reason why. It is well written, has good characters and has an interesting plot. it just didn’t jump out at me while I was reading it.
