Deacon Burke has a singular goal—to win back the Las Vegas casino swindled from his father years ago.

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.


Review:   Going for Broke by Amber Skyze is not part of a series but I can see many short stories on the two main character’s escapades. I chose this book because after reading the blurb I wanted to know how it ended.

Deacon Burke came to Las Vegas to get the casino that swindled from his father back. He is determined to get what he wants. However Deacon does not expect Holly and his attraction. Holly Perkins is a corporate raider eager to finally put down roots in one location while running a business she enjoys. Its apparent that Holly has a motive but Deacon has no idea about what.

The sex scenes were scorching.  At 81 pages, this book was well written with a clearly defined beginning, middle and ending. The chemistry between Holly and Deacon is blistering. Neither seemed to expect the chemistry between them either. Overall, this was a great story.
