She touched my hair. “You look like Snow White. Dark hair. Fair skin. Red lips.” She walked behind me and stared at our layered reflection in the mirror. “But your ass…did you have to eat all seven dwarfs?”
She’s not my type. I’ve seen nicer legs and bigger breasts on a chicken.
Not only was he handsome, he kissed like a porn star and danced like Michael Jackson. I’d hit a trifecta.

Funny, emotional love story with a mob-by twist…
I hear ‘mafia romance’ and I’m all in! Betting on Him holds all the delicious, political intrigue of the genre while not including gory details of the violence that is associated with it. For some reason, I was okay with that this time around…
Faye was a feisty, funny, down-to-earth female lead. A strong woman who dealt with life in the best of ways – with humour, quick-wit and common sense. She dealt with every knock down as it came, not dwellin ...more
It took me a while to get into the story but once I did it deliver.

A Kelly Collins story
A New Series to lose myself in.
A Marriage of Convenience.
Throw in a bit of Mafia romances and I was in my reading heaven with this book. The chemistry between the two characters was great with laughable moments and some great sexy banter moments. The book is a fast-moving, intriguing, suspenseful drama about two different people with very different upbringings coming together to solve their own problems in life. If you have not read a ...more

Betting On Him by Kelly Collins was a nice surprise. Though this book is about the mafia and one would assume would be darker and more contemporary, it was a great mix of funny, sexy and emotional.
I loved the two main characters. I loved Faye’s personality right from the start! She was strong but struggling. She was just trying to find a way out of the debt she was in. Alex just wants to be free of his family’s legacy, but when his father is killed, he needs to move quickly before he i ...more
I want to cry at this moment. I had this review already scheduled to go and I was writing another when my blog somehow mixed them and I ended up with two reviews of the same book and a missing scheduled review. I will attempt to redo this review but I am very sure it will not come out as awesome as it was before.
So this book is about this guy Alex who is the older brother of three and at the moment the head of the family empire. His dad had jus ...more

This was not quite a solid 4 star read, but was so much better than deserving only three stars that I had to go with rating it four stars.
While it is a mafia story, that aspect is just one part, and it isn't as dark as many others which are more sinister and filled with blood, guts, and gore. These characters are actually very likeable, and there's good chemistry between the protagonists. My only negative was that I felt the last several chapters were a bit rushed in ...more
I really loved the fact that Faye continued getting her college degree. Too many times, a woman would give up her dreams and aspirations if they found themselves in the same situation. Faye was a pragmatic individual and knew she needed to be prepa ...more
Faye Tandy is down on her luck in a bad way until she meets Alex Wilde, new owner where she works. Needing to find a way out of a tricky situation Alex asks her to marry him in a business arrangement. Of course there is that pesky mob history in his background that causes a few problems.
These two are great together! She doesn’t let him get away with anything. Her feisty but fair nature i ...more

Faye agrees to marry Alex to get him out of a previous arrangement. I liked the connection they had and the banter. They agree to keep things non sexual to start with but that just builds the sexual tension between them. Was lusting over Alex, he is perfect fantasy husband material - hot, a little bit of a bad boy & can take care of you completely. Things get hot & steamy when they can’t keep their hands of each each other anymore & they have good chemistry.
There’s lots of ...more

A surprisingly exciting, crackling with heat and with spectacular characters, Betting On Him was and is a story many readers will happily devour and beg for more!
More and more I like reading about a hero who has a mob connection. The idea of a dark, dominating, dangerous man that can fall in love with a strong and sweet woman is very appealing to me. And Betting On Him was perfect and met my every expectation and then some! The plot is thrilling and sexy and the ...more
