Good Story and Characters

The All-Star Antes Up (Wager of Hearts) - Nancy Herkness

Luke had overshot an interception in the few seconds of the game and the Patriots won. Luke was the quarterback for The New York Empire. He  got a sharp pain in his shoulder and that through his arm off. He went to the Bellwether Club but was only drinking water. The membership of this club required that you have a net worth in the ten figure range and had to be earned not inherited. Ben’s brother Trevor was back at his place also he was in no real hurry to go home. There was also at writer at the club and Luke actually read one of his series. The writer’s name was Gavin Miller but at the present he had writer’s block. The third man in the club is Nathan trainer and he invented the latest computer battery to this point. The three men made a bet to see who would find love and marry within the next year. Whoever did not marry had to auction off something valuable both to the public and themselves. That it would hurt these men to auction off. After he goes to go up to his place he sees his jerk of a brother requesting a female employee to do something improper. Luke was angry and let his brother know it. The employee’s name was Miranda. Then Luke and Miranda spend time getting to know each other. She is prim and proper not what Luke is used to. Miranda is determined she is not just going to be a fling for Luke.

I liked this story. It was a nice sweet read. This story is part of a series but can be read as a stand alone with no problems. I think Miranda and Luke toke a bit too long being cautious but that’s okay. The plot was good as was the writing. I really liked the characters. I also liked the ins and outs of the story. I recommend.

I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.
