This one is Incendiary - Wow!!

Dominick is an enforcer for a mafia casino. Hadley after studying both math and psychology figures out she can use her wiles at the poker table; claiming “beginner’s luck” until she goes in for the kill and takes all their money.

“You’ve got skill, and a lot of it, and the kinds of guys you play with don’t recognize that. I bet it makes it easy to take them for a ride. I can only imagine what kind of a rush that is.” A smile curls her lips up, and I can tell I’ve hi

Hadley uses psychology and her high math skills to make a killing in the casino. She is part of a group that works for a man that has them travel around fleecing different casinos all over the world.

What a rollercoaster Betting on Love is.
It definitely had my attention throughout and had me turning those kindle pages that quickly my kindle was smoking.
You see this storyline is that addictive you have to binge read it as there's no place you can actually take a break.
You need to know what's going to happen next.
Hadley and Dominick's story is a wonderful encounter of brains and brawn.

Betting on Love takes place in Vegas and is the story of Dominick and Hadley. When he first catches sight on her, he is intrigued. This book visits the casino owned by Jerry, a mafia boss. When Hadley wins a bunch of money, Jerry tells Dominick to find her and put an end to her winning anymore. If you enjoy a story with two strong main characters, then you will enjoy this book. We all know Alexis Abbott can write some amazing, steamy books and she doesn’t disappoint with this story.

I really enjoyed this story as it had lots of intrigue and kept me interested throughout. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending this book.

As an Enforcer for a Mob run casino, Dominick’s job is to make problems go away. If there is one rule that holds true, it is that the house always wins. The people who frequent the casino usually fit a profile, but the moment Hadley walks in, she sparks Dominick’s interest; she has confidence, poise and taste, as well as intelligence, cunning an

Whew, how can you not 5 star this read? Seriously!! Alexis has a way with mafia stories and I love each and every one of them.

Hadley has had a thing for math for a long time and has come to find out that counting cards in Vegas can net her a chunk of change. But then she finds herself, along with other very smart people, working for a man who is sending them around town raking in the cash for him.

Dominick is the enforcer for a mob boss who we find out that Hadley's boss owes a lot of money too.

This is a story about a card counter and a mob enforcer who works security at a casino. Hadley was a gambler who worked for a man who made sure she had the clothes and the access to the high rollers at casinos all over the world. She only got to keep a percentage of her winnings though, and her boss was no picnic. Dominick is hoping to get "made" soon, but is pretty sure he is going to have to kill someone to do it. When he sees Hadley walk into his casino and sit down and proceed to win a small ...more

Dominick works security for a casino run by the mafia, and no one walks away with more than ten thousand, he makes sure of it. He sees a woman that catches his eye both with looks and because he knows what she’s doing she’s calculated.
Hadley normally doesn’t let men catch her eye, normally she can read them, but she can’t the handsome man in the suit and that makes her nervous.
Unable to deny their attraction they spend an amazing night together, then things get complicated.

If you love smart women who go after what they want then you are going to love Hadley as she leaves a trail of distraction from coast to coast. As long there is a Casino, she will trail blaze through leaving broken hearts but the most important with a bag full of chips.

Hadley thought way too much of herself. She acted like a spoiled child when Dom asked for his shirt and had to leave before Hadley wanted him to go. She was nothing more than a greedy liar and thief in basic terms. Her ego was overinflated. Her POV seemed to make her out as innocent when she was anything but. She acted like what she was doing wasn't a crime, but just a job!!! She had the personality of a sociopath. No shame, remorse, or conscience. This story proves that 2 wrongs don't make one ...more

When Hadley rescues one of her co workers she realizes that her boss isn't the man she thought he was, and wants to leave her job. Dominic fell for Hadley the moment he saw her walk into the casino, and will do what he has to to keep her from his boss.

Aptly named Mafia story set in Las Vegas. Dominick is one step away from being a made man. He knows he'll be safer once he's a made man so needs to follow his boss' orders carefully until then. When Hadley walks into his place of employment, he is fascinated. Unfortunately, she’s there for work, too, and they're on opposing sides. I liked that Hadley was the clever, cunning person who devised the final plans. Dom was a strong man in all senses of the word, and he had his eyes on Hadley from the ...more

I enjoyed this story. It was a fun and interesting read. The characters were well written and the plot was good. Hadley and Dom meet in the casino. Dom knows there is something more to Hadley and the way that she cleaned the tables but he's more intrigued with her than about turning her in to his boss. Hadley and Dom are instantly attracted and drawn to each other. They just have that instant connection. Things around them both push them together and pull them apart at different times.

It wasn’t quite like anything I’ve read before but I thoroughly enjoyed it and all the elements within the story. I loved Dom and Hadley together. I loved their interactions right from the beginning especially how they first met. I loved how quick, witty and determined they both were, I thought they were perfect for each other. Not to mention those sexy and steamy moments... hot!
It was a fast paced read that I couldn’t put down, I just had to know what Hadley and Dom would do next.
