A good ol’ Georgia boy teaches a Myrtle Beach princess how to get down and dirty…
It’s been two years since Callie Holden helped put her father in prison, and since then, she’s learned a lot about life and herself. To Callie’s surprise, she actually likes working and has learned money is a tool to be used for good… or evil. She also realizes that even though she’s traveled the globe, she’s never truly lived. She longs for adventure and to experience a wildly passionate romance. The last place she expects to discover her dreams is in the arms of the ever-surly man she’s dubbed “The Beast.” But when they’re forced to work together, unexpected chemistry changes everything. In Wade Neumann’s arms, Callie finds the excitement and passion she’s been looking for, as well as a few other surprises.
Wade Neumann has spent the last year burying the pain and humiliation of being left at the altar by a woman who used him as a novelty toy before settling down with someone like herself—someone rich. He’s lost himself in a stream of nameless females, but instead of the trysts helping him heal, he’s only grown colder and more jaded. He hasn’t moved on with his life. He’s merely stuck going through the motions… until he meets Callie Holden, a woman who looks like his ex but is actually the opposite—sweet, compassionate, loyal, and most importantly, not rich. Or so he thinks. Because just as he starts to believe things with Callie are real and true, she gives him thirty million reasons to doubt all over again.
Alannah Lynne is back with her always sexy and romantic HEAT WAVE Series! Going All In was a lovely, romantic, sensual read with just a touch of suspense mixed in. Callie and Wade were characters that I instantly connected with. Both has had less than stellar pasts that they are trying to get over. Even with the pains and heartaches of the past, they have found a way to move on and live their lives on their own terms. It just so happens, that with Wade, that means burying himself inside multiple woman to temporarily ease the pain. With Callie’s past, she has traveled the world and never needed to worry about money, but after putting her horrible father behind bars, she has decided that she wants more for her life. She wants to make a living, she wants to earn her keep, and live the life that she wants, far away from her family’s money. Callie and Wade did not get off to a great start. First impressions are everything, and Wade’s first impression of Callie that day, left a sour taste in his mouth. Unbeknownst to Wade, Callie was just trying to help him keep his mind off things for a while, by working him like a dog. When fate brings them back together, it has a different plan in mind for them. Attractions flare, and the chemistry ignites. The past is forgotten, and the only thing that exists is the two of them and their passion for one another.
When the truth about Callie is overheard, Wade immediately goes on the defense. But Callie will NOT let him get far. She will do anything to make him hear her out. Too bad that ANYTHING could mean life or death. Callie is the one person who could heal his heart. Wade is the one person who could help her overcome her fears. They are better together, but the truth could tear them apart.
Going All In was a perfect love story with just the right amount of angst and suspense. This was a great fast-paced contemporary romance with characters that I adored and a satisfying storyline that kept my eyes glued to the pages. I always crave Alannah Lynne’s magic touch when it comes to Romance. Well done!
