Stacking the Deck

3.53  ·  Rating Details ·  15 Ratings  ·  7 Reviews
A game of cards sounds like the perfect way to get things going for a night of fun for Yumi and Lucas — that is, until the green-eyed monster that’s been hovering over Yumi’s shoulder takes over.

Even after all the effort she’s gone to in order to ensure the decks are stacked and the night ends the way she wants it, it isn’t going her way and their fortunes hang in the turn

A hot little story about a woman that uses a card game to ease into a night of sex with her boyfriend, as well as to clear the air about some issues that had been hanging between them. As someone that doesn't play cards a lot, and isn't familiar with the games they were playing, the action was often somewhat confusing as the references to the tricks and whatnot didn't always make a lot of sense to me and made it hard to understand why she got upset when she did at the beginning when things weren ...more
more like a 3.5 star one for this.

As much as I thought the sex was hot and the story premise was cute, I was so confused by the rules of the game that it kept taking me out of the story! LOL, I had to keep trying to figure out the rules and I would get so confused, I couldn't really get into the hot part. That's really frustrating for me because I wanted to get into the hot part!

I really enjoyed this story. This was really a 3.5 star read for me rounded up to 4.

As the characters in the story find out, be careful what you ask for, you just might get it. The characters play a game which asks their partners to tell the truth. Sometimes, you think you want to know the answer but then find out you didn't want to know it.

Cute short story!

Ok, I actually found myself speed reading this one as my mind was wondering if I was reading instructions to a card game or an erotica short. Must say this is my least favorite of all the books I've read. Didn't even get very steamy? Where'd you go Xavier? Keep em coming but not like this one!

Shelves: erotica, short
I have read and enjoyed a number of books by Xavier but this one didn't hit the mark for me. I found some aspects confusing, and the erotica side of it less than believeable.

However it is well written and the Lucas and Yumi were a fun couple.

Xavier Edwards (it might be his real name, no one is really sure) has spent his life surrounded by women, and writing. Growing up in rural Australia before the age of the Internet and cable television, there was no better refuge than in books. Any and all genres were absorbed as he and his three sisters grew up far from the hectic pace of the big smoke. The wide expanse of open country and natural ...more
