Review: Going For Broke by Amber Skyze

Businesswoman Holly Perkins is equally determined to gain control of the Pleasure Palace, the decadent casino where anything goes—including exhibitionism and master/slave play. A corporate raider, she’s eager to put down roots in one location while running a business she loves.

When Deacon spots Holly in front of the casino it’s lust at first sight, and soon she’s submitting to him during a blistering-hot encounter. But how will he react when he learns of Holly’s agenda? All bets are off in their high-stakes game of carnal cravings and ultimate control.

A chance encounter at Pleasure Palace casino between Holly and Deacon starts out hot and steamy but embers soon burn out when they realize they are both there for the same thing. And it’s not a night of hot sex.

I had read Going For Broke in about an hour and I was pleasantly surprised. For a story that wasn’t very long, it was well paced, had very steamy sex scenes with a hint of BDSM (really just bondage and spanking if we want to be honest). The plot was well thought out and explained with enough details to keep the book from being all sex with some fluff in-between the action. Although, I never did understand what the guy standing next to Holly at the Blackjack table was doing. I like the premise that both MCs were there for the same reason but didn’t get all snide and catty going for the same goal. The ‘relationship’ part of the plot moved rather fast but that’s to be expected in a novella.

Overall, not too bad of book to pass the time with. Definitely, started my day on a fun note. Anybody looking for a hot quickie will enjoy this book.
