Three things make billionaire Jim Halcyon’s to-do list: women, work…and more women. It’s a perfect agenda for a rich shifter who has no problem letting his inner grizzly out to play. From the bright lights of Vegas, to the sophisticated action of New York—he’s got the money and the power to do anything he wants.
Anything, except resist the lure of Lady Luck, an ancient copper coin he gambles yearly to possess. Jim is determined to regain control of the pretty penny, and damn if he’ll let any bit of eye candy distract him from his goal. Not even the mesmerizing woman in the middle of the casino floor with the shimmering hair and enormous green eyes.
With a life-changing move ahead of her, Lillie’s finagled a temporary layover en route to her future. She’s got five days to soak in new experiences, and while Vegas is too big and shiny and loud for her shy bear self, she’s eager to do this up right. It’s the last chance she’s got to let her hair down.
Until his challenge begins, Jim is more than willing to oblige Lillie’s wish for a final fling. Only Lady Luck has some twists of fate planned for them both…
A fabulous novella in the world of one of my favorite series. I’ve already met Lillie and Jim in a later book in the Takhini Shifters series but I really enjoyed exploring the story of how they met and fell in love.
Vegas was the perfect backdrop for this story and this couple, it’s a place where anything goes and fling is just another way to soak up the wildness of Vegas. Jim and Lillie are perfect for each other, even if they both tell themselves they only want a fling. When these two come together their passion is explosive, and melts the pages.
I will say that Ms. Arend gives this little novella the perfect ending, that I didn’t see coming but suits these two characters beautifully. I highly recommend this story and really hope that Jim’s best friend gets his own story soon.
