Bad Beat: A hand in which a player with strong cards is unexpectedly beaten by a lucky draw.
Nico Conti has never regretted joining the family business. Through hard work, loyalty, ruthlessness, and dedication, he earned his rank as Capo and his army of soldiers.
With the life he leads, a good woman is not in the cards—until one comes along and turns his world upside down.
Olivia Miller’s childhood was anything but conventional. Raised in a brothel, her mother protected Olivia from that life until she became sick. Now Olivia must be the protector.
Taken as collateral by Nico Conti in a business dispute between families, Olivia is desperate to get home—until Nico makes her an offer she can’t refuse.
Or can she?
Because to save the one she loves most, Olivia will need to ignore the sacrifices made for her and barter herself to the man who holds her future in his hands.
This is a full-length, steamy, contemporary romance novel without a cliffhanger. It is part of a series, but each book is a stand-alone centering on new main characters. Due to sex, language, and violence it is recommended for persons over 18.*** HEA ***
❤❤❤ Review By Tasha M ❤❤❤
I love Sarah Curtis books. She has a way of giving us Fairytales but in such a unique way. You know you going on a beautiful journey each time you read her book.
Bad Beat was no different this time. Bad Beat captured my attention from the Prologue. Nico caught my attention and really I can’t tell you why but he did and boy was I so Damn thrilled he did.
This book gave me so many feels. At times it felt Beauty and the Beast and then Cinderella. It really was my kinda book just told in my kinda Naughty, Dirty and mysterious way.
Nico is definitely hard headed badass but boy does he fall hard. Before he even knows it Olivia is all he can see. From the moment they met even under such circumstances she was His.
I loved watching Olivia tame a Dragon.
I adored watching her being cherished and loved and spoiled and protected by who everyone thought was The Big Bad Wolf.
Nico would move through Heaven and Hell for Olivia in a blink of an eye. Man or Woman he would Stamp on you if you came after her. His Love for he was Awe inspiring.
I loved how he took care of her and her mom, never once treating her badly. He never hid behind hate or nasty words when he didn’t understand what he was feeling for and that for me Was Hot, well also their sexy time would set you ablaze but this man’s maturity and the way he dropped all walls for Olivia was So Beautiful to watch.
Grab this book babes. Because amongst the Badass and his battles with ppl trying to hurt what’s his, you get an Astounding Love Story.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did….
