The stunning conclusion to the All In Duet...
In Vegas, there was one man who was off limits. One man... and I fell for him.

I knew there were risks. Still, I played the game. When Dario Capece called, I answered. When he beckoned, I came. When he broke all my rules, I looked the other way.

I knew there were risks. I just never realized they included death.

descriptionI am always a little afraid of being disappointed when it comes to sequels, especially when I enjoyed the first book so much. I worry it isn't going to live up to its predecessor, or the author is going to take the characters in a direction I don't like. So I was a bit nervous going into this book. I needn't have been though because I enjoyed book two just as much as I enjoyed the first.

The writing remained outstanding. It was well paced (for the most part). There was a small bit around three-

So this is going to be one of those reviews that are really hard to write, but let's try.

After finished reading Even Money, I kid you not, I was desperate to read Double Down, that ending left me breathless so the moment it hit my kindle I dived into it. Unfortunately for me, it was not what I was expecting.

The intensity from the first book got lost somewhere between Louisiana and Las Vegas, meaning that I didn't get that heart-pounding feeling I got while reading Even Money. This book felt ru

In Gambling, when you Double Down you are betting everything against all odds...Things look dire and instead of throwing in the towel or walking away and eating your losses... You make a Hail Mary move in betting it all or going All In. It is extremely risky and more often than not, can be disastrous...

But then there are those gamblers...the ones you see at the tables...all suited up. They have all the watches, sunglasses at night and shiny

Double down was the highly anticipated sequel that everyone wanted to get their hands on. Countdowns were in place, deals were made, and the drinking begun very early on because of the cliffhanger in part one. After reading this one, I have mixed feelings about this book. I didn’t entirely hate it, but I also didn’t love it and I felt somewhat disappointed.

If you’ve read the first book, then you’re fully aware of the cliffhanger that had us readers screaming wtf along with some other classy

Double Down is the second installment in Alessandra Torre's romantic/suspense duet titled: All In. The first book ended on an epic cliffhanger that had me bumping up my rating a whole star and eager to continue on to this book even though I had initially considered dropping the series. The cliffhanger was a game changer! It's what took this duet from an adult romance to adult romantic suspense/potential thriller territory. Unfortunately, Double Down did not satisfy my cliffhanger al ...more

Double Down is the conclusion to the All In Duet and swiftly continues on from the first in this two part romantic suspense series. Bell and Dario risk everything by being together and in this second part it seems that they may pay a high price for their romance.

Double Down is fast paced and high in drama. It takes lots of twists and turns and has a conclusion that I truly did not anticipate which will certainly please those who are partial to romantic suspense stories. There are many aspects a

This was a really good romantic suspense. It was superbly written with believable, well rounded characters, sex scenes that were off the charts hot, an exciting suspenseful and interesting storyline that kept me engrossed with moments of drama, conspiracy, betrayal and passion.
I really liked Dario and Bell a lot! Their sexual encounters were hot! Besides the sweet, hot romance between these two, this story has a lot of suspense, action, danger, steamy sex, and intrigue.
Definately a great read...

Sinister, suspenseful, and passionate!

Double Down is a twisty, smoldering tale that picks up right where Even Money left off, taking us back to Vegas where murder is still fresh, corruption is still rampant, girls are still missing, evil is still prevalent, and long-hidden secrets are about to be unearthed.

The prose is incisive and tight. The characters are resourceful, vulnerable, and tenacious. And the plot told from multiple POVs is a fast-paced, engaging mix of corruption, friendship, family

Finished both books in two days - they were that good!

Dario and Bell have to manage to stay alive long enough to outwit Hawk and find evidence to convince the Feds to investigate and then topple Hawk's evil empire. I loved all the suspense and the shenanigans in these two books. These were perfect reads for lakeside sunbathing this past long week end!

Don't we all wish we could have a former bad boy get "all devoted", the way Dario does with Bell.
Heck, don't you wish they actually existed! Enjo

Double Down was a masterful conclusion to the All In Duet...that I devoured in a single day. And now, my heart is ridiculously content with the ending to Dario and Bell's story. I loved every beautifully crafted word. This duet was a 10 star read for me!

Suspenseful and so good
Part two in the series starting right after a cliffhanger, Double Down continued to captivate me and hold me hostage. I could not get enough of Dario and Bell together. You could feel the spark and the energy; the despair and pain; the heat and the fire.

This portion focused mainly on the suspenseful twists in the story and less on the heated connection. But they were there. They were definitely there to remind us just how good Torre brought these two togethe

The sexy suspenseful ending in the All In Duet opens at full speed. The story picks up with the cliffy that emerged in Book 1. Grief and sadness along with anger and questions come full circle.

Dario and Bell and their relationship.......they have found each other in a sea of impossibilities. But what they feel can’t be denied and whatever the craziness of their lives throws at them, they remember that love. I loved that the author kept that reminder in the story becau

Ah, I have to admit I kinda expected smth more...

the first 50% kept me in anticipation and suspense...but then it became so very predictable and honestly I was just waiting for it to be unfolded and revealed...I might have even skimmed a bit :/

I love Alessandra Torre, she can write a fantastic suspense romance drama, but here I simply think it would have been an aweosme story if it were wrapped up in just one book.
Mindy Lou's Book Review
What a phenomenal story! It had just the right amount of everything to completely consume me for days. Alessandra Torre killed it with this duet!

I loved Dario. He was wealthy, powerful, dominant. When he turned his sights on Bell he became obsessed, protective and tender. When danger came Bell's way, Dario was fascinating to read about. These two have become one of my favorite couples.

I was worried at first how the ending of book one was going to effect this book but I think the author did a fan

*Cue the rant review* 

I didn't know what to expect when I went into Double Down, but I hoped that it would be a lot better than Even Money. It wasn't and I'm mad—actually no, I'm pissed. I totally hate it when my faves disappoint, but honestly this duet didn't even read like an Alessandra Torre book. Where was the thrill? The suspense? The sex appeal? The twist that would leave me on the edge of my seat? Gosh, I'm so frustrated but let's get this review over with.

WHOA!!!! What an utterly unique, shockingly suspenseful sequel this was! I was completely RIVETED by the dark and twisty course of events that transpired in Double Down. All In consumed me with its romanticism, Double Down gripped me with its unpredictability, with its edge of your seat suspense. It all culminates into an unputdownable package, a MUST READ duet, and I enjoyed every moment. 

Double Down has a decidedly different vibe than All In. All In, for me, was very much the build, the chase,

More than me hating this book, I guess I'm more so disappointed. I usually love the authors work and this just didn't feel like something she could have written.

The story has so many faults and gaps, it was rushed to top it all and more than anything I felt the story wasn't even complete. It didn't do justice in giving a complete story, so many holes in the plot and so many questions unanswered. It felt so unnecessary, the whole book and the story. A great plot, with so much potential, could hav

The best part of Alessandra Torre's new duet is that I didn't have to wait long to read the conclusion.

Double Down starts just after the terrible ending of Even Money. Bell and Dario are both devastated in their own way. For her own safety, Bell will need to leave Las Vegas while Dario figures out a way to protect the woman he has fallen for. Unfortunately, things are not easy when you don't know who can be trusted.

Double Down gives us more insight into Dario's life before marrying Gwen which

I was so excited to read this highly anticipated conclusion to Even Money, that cliff hanger was brutal! This picks up exactly where we were left anxiously waiting on that cliff…

Talk about a monumental mind fuck, for Bell and Dario. It was also tragically sad too. Dario has spent so many years protecting the life he has with Gwen and she means everything to him. Together they have been able to stay under the radar of her crazy, evil dad. It only took one moment in time to change everything.

3.5 “Love me through the cracks.” Stars

I enjoyed this duet. I enjoyed book one, Even Money. I really enjoyed the suspense and side characters in Double Down that much more. I feel like Dario and Bell’s relationship was able to shine a bit more in this book. It was less sexy forbidden and more passionate and emotional. It was suspenseful, and wrapped up this tumultuous love story with a nice little bow. However, the bow may have been a little too bright pink for my taste, and some of the ends a l

Double down in blackjack is when "you have a risky hand that had the potential to be strong, or the potential to be disastrous. Instead of riding the hand out, you double you bet and in doing so, you wager everything on the next card." The meaning for Dario and Bell—they were a losing hand but stayed in and risked more.

This book was so appropriately named. After the ending in Even Money, I couldn't wait to get my hands on Double Down. Thankfully readers don't have long to wait.

Double Down is the 2nd book in the All In Duet, and cannot be read as a standalone.

I don't want to give any spoilers, especially since the two books released close together, there might be a lot waiting for the conclusion to be released before diving in.

What I can tell you is that Alessandra Torre did it again. Double Down was thrilling, suspenseful and erotic. After the ending of Even Money, I was dying to know what happened next. Just as things seemed to calm down for these two, another twis

I loved this series for so many reasons. The characters were interesting, the plot intriguing, the sex scorching and the writing tight and perfect. Once I picked this up I couldn’t put it down and now, long after I’m done, I’m still craving more of Bell and Dario.

Picking up right where Even Money left off, Double Down deals with the attempt on Bell’s life and the lengths Dario must go through to protect the woman he loves. I found his protectiveness to be oh-so alpha, and adored reading about Da

‘He watched her and felt something he didn’t understand. Vulnerability with a side of fear. Want eclipsed by need. Intrigue overshadowed by jealousy…This girl would be the death of him.’

Like the first in the duet, this book never drew me in. I enjoyed the suspense but the actions seemed abrupt and I never got that satisfying feeling of redemption or conclusion to the suspense. I really enjoyed Laurent but still never felt the connection between Bell and Dario. I generally adore this writer’s books but this duet just didn’t work for me.
