This is essentially a story of mistaken identity. We're led to believe that professional gambler Jax Gallagher plans a ruthless seduction of Vegas showgirl Treena McCall because his father's gold-digging widow refuses to give him the family heirloom he was promised on his father's death. But we quickly learn that Treena's actually a good girl who treasures her friends who have become a second family to her and Jax is still the awkward kid who never fit in any anywhere after his mother died when he was a child and he was left with his often absent father who didn't know how to interact with his nerdy son who was not the natural athlete he was.
It was good but not great. I was of course a sucker for the family aspect, and Treena and Jax were the right mix of hot and adorable together, but little things were off. Not enough to put me off the story, but enough that I'll have no need to reread this one.
