Title: Roll The Dice (Vegas #2)
Author: Mimi Barbour
Star: 2 1\2 stars
The story is descent but readers will become very distracted at the author writing style and lack of editing.
At one point as a reader I started to wonder if it was apart of the characters way of speaking but soon found it was all over the book and not just that characters.
The story is a short read but lack polish.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for a copy of Mimi Barbour Roll The Dice.
When attractive Las Vegas detective, Aurora Morelli, makes a friend, she takes the relationship very seriously. And if someone hurts that person, they’re going down. Slim and dainty, she has the heart of a lion, and when angry, the manners of a she-cat. Therefore the sicko who attacked her partner has become her prime target and nothing or no one will stand in her way. Except maybe her new partner who arrives in town full of vengeance for the same culprit.
Kai Lawson, a Bruce Willis look-alike, annoys her, and almost from the beginning, things go wrong. She questions whether they should be working together, especially after he shoots her, and not accidentally. Constant screw-ups on the job and the attraction building between them makes reaching her goal seem almost insurmountable. Almost!
