FOOLISH GAMBLE (Classic Romance Book 1)


When I started reading FOOLISH GAMBLE I didn’t expect to find a story so good that I would lose a nights sleep, but I did! This is the first book in the “Classic Romance” series by Lita Lawson and it is phenomenal. I knew when I read she fell in love with romance and alpha males after watching “Gone With The Wind” that I was going to love this book.

Foolish Gamble by Lita Lawson. I give this book 4/5 stars. The theme of this book is a millionaire farm owner falls for a girl whose farm is on debt. This is a standalone novel.
Cassi is left with the debt of her family farm. She puts everything she owns on a horse. Her life is changed when she asks for help from the horse. The quote I chose for her is when she brings the horse to the farm: “Thanks, but somehow I don't think your security people would relish a beat up old truck pulling onto your
