Double Down

By Alessandra Torre

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs

Release Date: 18th June 2018

    In Vegas, there was one man who was off limits. One man ... and I fell for him.

I knew there were risks. Still, I played the game.

When Dario Capece called, I answered. When he beckoned, I came. When he broke all my rules, I looked the other way.

I knew there were risks. I just never realized they included death. 


ARC received for an honest review

After the way the first book, Even Money ended, I knew we were going to be in for one heck of a bumpy ride with Double Down.

And Ms Torre did not disappoint me.

Holy crapballs, this book had me on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading.  The conclustion to Dario and Bell's story had me anxious, had me sad, had me mad.  For every character I loved, there were two I hated.

I anxiously turned each page, needing to know our lovelies were alright, that they were fighting for each other, that they would make it to their happy ending.

Full of action and suspense, Double Down was a great conclusion to our lovelies story - plenty of twists and turns. Though half the time I wanted to throw my kindle or reach into my kindle and punch somebody!

I can't wait to see what Ms Torre brings us next


Book #2 starts where the first one left us hanging!

Bell just found Gwen dead in the hotel room. Dario reacts quickly and sends her to an old buddy in Louisiana. He already knows that Gwen's father and his 'killer' girl will never let Bell live.

And poor Bell. She doesn't know what to think - to do. She's stuck in the swamps with this weird Laurent person. Does Dario even care for her, love her? After the way he reacted to Gwen's death. She's just not sure about anything anymore.




YAY, finally book #2 - even though it hasn't been that long!

Book #1 ended with a huge Cliffy and now we're right back in that moment with Dario & Bell.

It was all mega exciting and scary and I just wanted to fast forward to the end to see if and how we'll get that happily ever after. But of course I didn't! I read the whole amazing story!

And I loved it!

It was all very edge-of-your-seat-ish. You just had to keep on reading. How would poor Dario handle his father-in-law and everything surrounding the death of his wife in Vegas?! He needs to get him arrested ... otherwise he will never be free and happy with Bell.

It's not easy, but Dario is NOT giving up. He's finally found his happily ever after person - and he'll do anything for their future life together.

And then when you think you can finally take a breath ... that it's almost time for our happy end - and BAM - it's so not over yet! Grrrr!

I loved every minute of it!

Oh, well, if I had to name a tiny thing I didn't love? I don't like books that have chapters in the bad people's POV. I only want the two main character's thoughts!
BUT it didn't bother me all that much!
I still LOVED this duet very much! Dario is so mega swoon-worthy!
This was the perfect finale with the perfect ending to our darlings' story!

And oooh - can we get Rick and Lance's story one day??? Please!? And Laurent too! I want ALL the stories!
Because ...  it wasn't really an ending end for the bad guy/girl. I'm afraid she'll be back one day!

I wouldn't mind if Netflix came along and made a show out of it!
