REVIEW Ante Up By Christina C. Jones,
You read and get to know him you realize that that s just him and how he is but he would never do anything to hurt someone he loves Not on purpose anyway He is fiercely loyal smart headstrong direct and sexy as all hell Which combined with asha who is also fiercely loyal with Asha who is also fiercely loyal direct and headstrong made for a very ntertaining readI loved all the side characters in Ante Up as well Even in her shorter books Christina has a way of making her secondary and Walled even tertiary characters shine in a way that makes you want to read books about them as well Like I would LOVE a book featuring Ace and Cree or Jax and Camille That can t be too much to ask for BasicallyI loved this book There isn t anything I would change or add or remove because it was very close to being perfect dammit I want sobsRecommendation I should just type up a recommendations template for Christina s books because so far they all say the same thing READ IT I could not put this book down It was anxciting ride reading about the passionate and oft times rocky relationship between two fascinating people Asha Davis and King Whitfield This was my first time reading a novel by Christina Jones and from her foreword I take it this type of story was a worrisome departure for her I sometimes prefer dark tales myself but ven if I didn t she needn t have worried The story dialogue and characterizations were mad skillful I loved not only the depth and breadth of the main characters and their xchanges but the secondary characters ven the ones I didn t care for had me motionally invested from the beginning I specially loved the still somewhat dark but playful and
HEARTFELT ENDING WHICH MADE THIS Aending which made this a strong standalone book that didn t leave me hanging out to dry Best of all there were clear places to go that would be ngaging storylines if Mrs Jones were so
inclined to delve back into these characters I d personally come along for the ride if she didto delve back into these characters I d personally come along for the ride if she did I said I could not put the book down and look forward to what might come next out of Las Vegas I cannot wait to go on a CCJ binge I loved this book and King The chemistry portrayed throughout the story was Snowbound Seduction explosive and Injoyed the suspense Excellent job CCJ Audio 425 starsStory 35 starsMostly a great story but the romance was lacking for me First Asha and King didn t spend In the Surgical Theatre enough time together in the story Secondly the steamy scenes lacked intimacy Third thending is a weak HFN Neither of them has Hinterlands and Commodities: Place, Space, Time and the Political Economic Development of Asia Over the Long Eighteenth Century even admitted to themselves let aloneach other that what they were feeling is love Since this is book one I m going to assume book two will continue their story I hope so because I can see Asha and King being a power couple My 35 rating is rounded up for the strong female lead. Etrayal Hometown Valentine exploitation and manipulation But he learned The tolls of duplicity wrath and vengeance have taught him to be mindful shrewd to keep himself clear of the vulnerability of certain situations certain business deals certain places and certain women Women like Asha Like attracts like Her poker face has kept her alive all this time and he keeps his cards close to his chest Neither is interested in gambling their hearts but when they can’t stay away fromach other there’s only one choice ante up.
