 My Review

*I received an ARC of this title in exchange for an honest review*

This wasn’t my first book of Xavier Neals, I am always drawn into her books. The Gamble was no exception to my love of her books.

In The Gamble we meet three best friends, Luca, Warren and Alexxa. The two guys end up in a bet of if Luca could sleep with Alexxa by the end of the summer. Warren doesn’t want in on the bet, but Luca pushes him to agree to it and so the plan hatches. Luca is a cocky and arrogant character from the start and I had a hard time growing to like his personality, but once things pick up I did grow to love him! He is very much a play boy and doesn’t see himself settling down anytime in the future. As his plan begins to unfold trying to seduce and win Alexxa over, feelings he didn’t expect get involved. But what will happen when the sweet and innocent best friend, Alexxa, finds out it was all a scam? Even if Luca tries to convince her it may of started off that way, is the damage done and cannot be undone?

All three characters were well written and there were moments with all of them I wanted to throw something at them, and other times I just loved how things all came together. This was a quick and fun read with lots of flirtiness and a twist or two along the way.
