The Aspen 2-Million Winner-Take-All

Morgan thought he had it made. He owned a cozy if dilapidated house in Aspen’s otherwise-fashionable West End, had lots of friends, a great business, threw the best parties in town.

Then his beautiful-but-aloof neighbor Risa sued him for a million bucks– for killing her dog. (Seriously. And he hadn’t even been there.) She was asking the judge to throw him out of town, too.

This book felt like it was never going to end. I know the story is fiction but it could of been a bit more believable.

I am surprised that the lawsuit went as far as it did. Early on in the book we find out who really killed the dog.

The lawsuit is so far fetched its hard to take it seriously.

I found it hard to accept the romance of Morgan and Risa. Seriously? Morgan wants to be with the woman suing him? I know that he was trying to get him to fall in love with him to drop the law suit. The minut

Want a book to laugh your way through? This is it! The Aspen 2 Million……is one of the most amusing stories I think I’ve ever read – and that’s saying something. Morgan, God bless Him (and, believe He needs to!) has been accused of several very bad things by his next-door-neighbor, Risa. Let’s see: He killed her dog (well, not really); he set her house on fire (nope!), he made the roof on her side of the Chalet Sepp collapse (not even close). The sum total of the list is that she is suing him for ...more

The Aspen 2-Million Winner-Take-All by John Morris is a book about a man, Morgan who has this lovely neighbor Risa, and she has a dog.

But the odds are stacked against him and Risa has decided to sue. To come up with the money that he hopes to pay to Risa because he feels he will lose the lawsuit, he signs up to win a 2 million dollar jackpot in a se ...more

Morgan loves living Aspen. He could never dream of living anywhere else.

He inherits a dilapidated duplex when his landlord dies and to be able to stay there and fix it up a little he has to sell half. This brings the lovely Risa into his life, and her little yapping dog too.

Morgan a self appointed life coach who uses golf to bring out the best in people travels a lot. When he arrives home after one of his trips Risa informs him her dog is missing. No one is more surprised than Morgan when the do

Morgan thought his future in Aspen looked bright. The owner of his duplex passed away, leaving it to him.

She’s asking for a million dollars and for the judge to throw him out of town. At this point he has three options. He can try to get her to fall in love with him, discover her deep dark secret or win a ...more

Are you ready for a farcical,light-hearted, unrealistic quasi-romance, kind-of mystery story? I wish to welcome you to a story that will never believe and yet, you might still find it enjoyable. It will be unlike anything you have ever read, I guarantee it.

First things first. There is no descriptive sex (although it is implied), and there is a moderate amount of profanity. I could do with less profanity, I will admit, but neither of these issues spoiled the book for me. But I would be remiss if

Did I enjoy this book: I did not enjoy this book which is unfortunate because the premise seemed promising. Then, I started reading it and ... UGH. The whole book was just too unbelievable and ridiculous.

The main plot is totally unbelievable once you get into the story. There is no way this lawsuit would get that far for many, many reasons. Also, Morgan's lawyer should not be practicing the very least, he should have referred him to a more qualified attorney. Furthermore, Risa's attorn

A bit of guilty entertainment. Morgan is living life his way in Aspen, Colorado. Then Risa moves in. Gorgeous Risa, compared in the book to both Charlize Theron and Brooklyn Decker, turns out to be a handful.

When Risa's dog is killed by Morgan's falling marijuana potted plant, yes this is the kid of zaniness you can expect, Risa goes for the jugular and sues. Morgan stands to lose everything.

Then he hears about a winner-take-all golf tournament with a $2 million prize. This could be the answer

Living in Aspen, Colorado was everyone's dream. Surrounded by snow, you can ski to your heart's content whenever you feel like it and you don't need to worry about anyone else but yourself. For Morgan Somerville, Aspen was everything he could imagine and more. He was content with living his life in Chalet Sepp, his now permanent residence, oblivious to the world around him.

When the building's owner dies unexpectedly and leaves him everything he ever owned, Morgan can't count his lucky stars enou

Aspen 2 Million Winner Take-All is about Morgan, a young male who thinks his life is going too good to be true, when all of the sudden the incredibly gorgeous (described as a Playboy and swimsuit model), yet mysterious, miss Risa shows up. Risa has this tiny little dog (a Bichon Frise named Tyson) who never stops yapping (not barking... definitely yapping). One night Morgan has a house party, the party gets out of hand and a pot plant (that is dead) is knocked off an outside balcony and lands di ...more

The Aspen 2-Million Winner-Take-All by John Morris
Like this book on many counts: the golf, how he just falls into financial gain and his so easy going life style.
Morgan inherits the other half of the apartment complex when the owner dies. He is able to rent it out and a hot chick rents it with her little dog.
The dog gets on his nerves with the constant barking. She is to be a lawyer but he wouldn't be able to prove what she does for work as they don't talk much.
The building is falling apart, ele

I've written a couple of fun ebook novels, but lately my main job is "personal manager" to 8 of The Chow Network's celebrity canine chefs.
When they can find time, they're each writing a cookbook, each featuring a different fun cuisine.
First up will be Fifi LeFay with "Pastry for Poodles."
Hope you can join in the fun!
