Nina Sheridan desperately needs a timeout vacation. With a fiancé who can't even remember how she takes her coffee, Nina wants some distance to rethink her engagement. Flying halfway around the world from England to a mountain town in Colorado should do the trick. But when she finds a gorgeous man at her rental cabin, Nina's cold, lonely adventure suddenly heats up.

The owner of the house, Holden "Max" Maxwell is surprised by the beautiful woman who turns up at his door. But when Nina becomes ill, Max spends days nursing her back to health. A private man with a broken heart, Max finds himself drawn to the strong-willed woman. Soon it becomes impossible for Nina and Max to deny their growing attraction to one another. Yet even as these two wounded lovebirds think about taking a chance on a relationship, a dangerous secret from Max's past emerges-and threatens to end their love for good.

BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

I am admittedly being uber nerdy and reading according to the Kirsten Ashley reading order, so The Gamble was next up on my list. 

I take KA book reading seriously.

These are all bricks of books so I have gotten up to Rock Chicks # 7 knowing I have to hold out on #8 ( according to the reading order experience) until I get some Colorado Mountain under my belt.

So I went and met Holden Maxwell aka Max.

“Because I’ve seen you naked. I’ve seen you sweet. I’ve seen you unsure. And I’ve seen you riled and, seein’ all that, I know, you were half a world away from me, I’d fuckin’ phone.”

“If you told me you needed a timeout, first, I wouldn’t fuckin’ let you have one. Second, I wouldn’t give you a reason to fuckin’ want one. And last, you took off anyway, I’d fuckin’ phone.”

“Not gonna fuck you, honey, just fool around,” he whispered back.

“Max –“

“Shut up and kiss me, Duchess.”


“All right, I’ll kiss you.”

Nuff said!


Max is one pretty amazing book boyfriend.

Read this book.

Meet Max and Nina and the sexy shenanigans that go on.

Meet Brody, Mindy, Becky, Arlene, Jimmy Cotton, the mean ones (you’ve always gotta have a couple of those stirring trouble).

I will admit there was a scene or two where I had a girlie moment, but then I had a real girlie moment at the end.


There was so much fictional escapism in this book for me. From his A-Frame in the Colorado mountain with snow and the Bluff to those in bed moments where he just wanted to tug her up against his chest and not let go.


If you have read at least one KA book namely a Rock Chick book, you know what type of recipe she uses, so you are gonna meet a group of characters, there will be shenanigans and men that will make you wanna howl at the moon.

Go get yourself some Rock Chick and now some Colorado Mountain men because KA doesn’t muck about when she presents these hard lovin’ men to us.

Hell yeah!

Sweet Dreams is up next. I gotta clear the schedule for another bad ass thick brick of a read.

I sure got me a list to catch up on.

If you've not read one KA book yet...seriously, dudes, get on it!

I am serious about recommending a KA read. :)
