This is book 3 in the Chatsfield Series, written by various authors and after reading a few I admit that I am so not enchanted…one or two have been good but for most part….meh!!!

Well, this offering my Michelle Conder is one of those beyond meh!!!!

Cara Chatsfield is supposedly a wild child…but not really…she knows she’s not!!!
She sighed. Yes, her life was a goldfish bowl; it always had been.
It’s that life she has….daughter of a billionaire who just happens to own the Chatsfield hotel

Model/Socialite Cara Chatsfield gets sent to Vegas to host an important poker tournament at one of her father’s hotels. On the way there she accidentally bumps into handsome hero Aiden Kelly in the airport—seems like he’s on the way to the poker tournament too for private reasons of his own.

I really enjoyed this book. I loved the settings, first the Vegas hotel, and later beautiful Fiji! And I liked how the sexual tension built up throughout the book as they got to know each other before they

In hopes of rehabilitating her wild child reputation, Cara Chatsfield promises her family that she'll play hostess for a big gambling event at their Las Vegas casino. There, a man literally runs in to her so hard that he breaks her heels, says it was her own fault, and then when she tries to protest, offers her $50 and calls her a hooker. Her love interest, ladies and gentlemen! In the time honored tradition of terrible romance novels, he continues to find the most absurdly unlikely explanations ...more

I loved the story from the start up to the last page. The plot is really simple and you might say, predictable but it was well written, with awesome dialogue and very likable characters. And the ending here was a lot better than the previous book Playboy's Lesson.

P.S:It is my first taste of this author’s writing, but it most certainly will not be my last.

P.P.S: I still loved the Q&A portion at the end of the book.

Cara Chatsfield has always been just herself, or at least that's what the outside world thinks. They see a beautiful woman, who likes to party hard, cause scandal and just generally waste her life away.

The truth is she's been hurt so badly in the past that she has a daily ritual of channeling a different famous person every day in order to just get through the day. So when she is sent to play hostess at her father's hotel for the poker match of the century she is armed with as much

Despues de que las dos novelas anteriores no fueran lo que esperaba, me estaba planteando dejar sin terminar esta saga y eliminarla de mi lista de GR, me dije que esta era la ultima oportunidad que le daba, que si la historia de Cara y Aiden seguia sin gustarme, haria borron y cuenta nueva, pero este libro consiguio atraparme ( algo que no habian conseguido los anteriores ), en parte se que fue porque la pareja protagonista consiguio simpatizarme mas y tambien porque la trama de Socialite Gamble

This series is ROCKING!
Nice to get a look into the backgrounds of both main characters. Some good lessons about forgiveness, and being true to yourself. Liked the interview at the end (worked almost like an epilogue).

This book took me some time to get into. Both the characters had flaws that I found difficult to relate to. It was great to see the focus on a female Chatsfield (Cara), but I think I wrote her off too early as a Paris Hilton wannabe. She appeared rather shallow and later in the book, insecure.

I really wanted to like Aidan - the man holds the television rights to the AFL (Australian Football League)! He blew hot and cold for me, sometimes treating Cara as a princess, sometimes like a piece of

So dubbed the wild child but totally innocent daughter of a hotel chain owner becomes part of a bet in a high stakes poker game in her fathers hotel !!!

I think three stars and a little too much for this story. Aidan was an awful guy that decided to buy a woman, for me that was the first mistake of this book. Cara was way too submissive and needed a good dose of reality because for some reason she always manages to find the wrong move and gets terrible afterwards. This family is way too dramatic, after they make the wrong choices suddenly is all a mistake. Not my cup of tea. Didn't liked Aidan and Cara was just too boring. Not a great book.

I for one can't stand weak heroines. Like seriously stop with the crying... Granted the Hero was such an asshole, like the typical M&B Heros, major asshole, always jumping into conclusion and ready to believe the worst in the heroine. Their first make out session got me hooked on this book though, like seriously major fantasy right there. Not trying to include spoilers, I'd say it's worth reading if you like the assholic Heros

"Conder’s romance is full of fireworks and her narrative is a heady mix of sensual banter and humor. Set in a tropical paradise, the book has an arrogant, vulnerable hero and a heroine with an unjustified image. They may seem like an unlikely pair but will win hearts on their passionate journey" (RT Book Reviews). 4 1/2 stars

This book was like the Chatsfield books. However I found Cara to be a bit of a 'poor little rich girl'.
Surely she could help herself. It was, however a quick enjoyable read.

Two and a half stars for this one. Took ages for me to get into the story, there's not a lot if dialogue in the beginning and I almost put it down. All came together nicely in the end though.
