I totally enjoyed this second roll of the dice - everything aligned perfectly. I was in the mood for a romance and Janice was one of my favorite characters from Rocket Man (Ready to Roll #1). There are no cardboard characters in Greene's work - everyone stands on his or her own, ready to roll the dice and tell another story.

A quick, enjoyable read, with complex believeable characters and a good sex scene.
This is a novella in the Roll of the Dice series. We met Janice and Miguel in book one, Rocket Man. Janice was Serena's work friend and sounding board, so we got to know her much better than we did Miguel, as he was more a background character in the book. At the close of Rocket Man, Janice and Miguel were together. This is the story that gets them there.

The use of 'si' instead of 'sí'. These are two completely different words and I had to catch myself from thinking "if what?". Other words had accents, so why couldn't this on

This was a cute, easy book to read. Characters were fun and relateable. Good character development for such a short story. Felt it was a little predictable, but otherwise I would recommend. Thank you Goodreads for making me a First Reads Winner.
