Title: Go For Broke⁣⁣
Author: Daisy Knox⁣⁣
Cady Blackwell is a victim of her own bad judgment: dating the biggest losers, attracting a stalker, and unknowingly accepting a job that's gotta be illegal. She can't quit until she finds a way to protect herself from being framed for her bosses' crimes, plus she wants to stay alive and out of prison. But nothing's easy when she's distracted by a charming financier and a f-boy detective. She's in way over her head, and she's fighting for her

This is my first time reading this author’s books. I got mixed up some in the beginning of the book, but as I got farther along I knew what was happening. It really got thrilling in some places where I couldn’t wait to find out what would happen next. Zack and Cady met once and had a one night stand. I can’t imagine how she felt when he never called and gave her a fake number, especially since he rocked her world. You could tell she was mad after the shock of seeing him again and finding he was ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed Go for Broke, the debut romantic thriller by Daisy Knox. Who does not love a romantic thriller with a happily ever after ending? Daisy Knox is a wonderful storyteller. I love how she developed the story line and the characters. I love how Daisy Knox incorporated the name of the book into the story with a simple phrase by Zack. My favorite part of the story is that it is set in Pittsburgh, and as a Pittsburgher, I loved reading the references to my hometown. I love that she w ...more

Nothing is going right in Cady’s life at the moment- her love life is none existent, her job is horrible and she’s got a stalker. Talk about having the deck stacked against you making you question everything in your life. On a whim, Cady emails a local reporter, Daniel, to ask questions about her stalker and a case he’s reported on.

For some reason I didn't remember reading the blurb for this book and was in for a complete shock when I was expecting a romantic comedy and ended up with a romantic suspense. However, I absolutely love books with serial killers in them so this was a wonderful surprise!

The serial killer plot line in this book was amazing! I loved how the book handled the discovering the killer and the suspense of the scenes once the killer catches up to Cady and Zack!

Cady and Zack are super cute and I loved ho

There's a lot going on with this story. Cady is dealing with shady bosses, creepy phone calls, and this mix of suspense that has her investigating these issues. Zack was a one night stand that shows back up in her life and there was a lot of back and forth between then. With so much outside of them going on I couldn't connect with the characters as well I'd have liked. There is good suspense, the heart of the mystery kept my attention. I would have liked to have a bit more focus on one issue, as ...more

I really enjoyed Go For Broke by Daisy Knox. Cady has a stalker and she’s determined to catch whom ever it is. She’s just not sure who she can trust. She contacts a local reporter, Daniel, to ask questions about her stalker; and this leads to a chain of events happening and Daniel having to call his friend Zack, a local investigator, for help. I really liked Zack’s character and him and Cady were a perfect match. This was a quick and entertaining read and I look forward to reading more by this a ...more

I was provided a copy of this book and this is my honest review.

I never read anything from Daisy Knox so this was my first one. I liked this one though! From steamy romance scenes to terrifying situations. Psychological stalker stories have never held an interest to me, but I'm glad I read this story! Bravo!

This story had a lot going on. It was filled with secrets and lies and so many questionable characters. An enjoyable drama and suspense read.

Daisy Knox is a tease. And Go for Broke is the biggest tease of all—and that’s good. Written in first person, present tense, the teasing is immediate and deliciously in-your-face.

It’s not just the way she teases out the danger swirling around her like a cyclone of impending doom. It’s the way she metes out the foreplay in agonizing surges. After the innuendos, after the intense flirtation, after hot lips nearly brushing, our heroine, Cady, admits, “A breathy little moan escapes me when his body

This book was intense!!!! I enjoyed how I felt like I was part of a crime investigation through the whole thing while also falling in love with the characters.

Cady was such a sweet character and I couldn’t imagine being in her shoes while feeling like you are constantly being watched.

Zack is such an amazing boyfriend always protecting her and doing everything he can to make sure she is safe. I also love how he brought her into the fold of his friends to protect her even further.

As always, I would like to first thank Grey's Promotions for my Advance Copy in exchange for my honest review.

If you are confused by the range of reviews for this book, there is a reason. As hard as I tried to like Go For Broke by Daisy Knox, I just couldn't for a multitude of reasons. The plot developed so slowly that it took three chapters and over 20% of the book to get any kind of grasp of what was going on. There were too many points of view and too many subplots to be able to even guess h

Thanks to the publisher for an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Unfortunately, I could not get into this book. Usually books of this genre grab me right away but not this one. I struggled to find the chemistry between the couple and the mystery seemed a little contrived.

If you are looking for graphic descriptions of sexual situations this might be the book for you but I did not finish it.

I love these characters and the heat and suspense in their story.
