MediaKit_BookCover_TakingAGambleIt was only supposed be a little harmless fun, a road trip to Las Vegas to prove to everyone that she’s not boring. Instead, Marcy wakes up in a hotel room with her best friend’s brother. Worse, they’re wearing nothing but matching rings! Now, Marcy has to decide if she’s going to take a gamble on Nick or walk away from the best thing she never saw coming.

Enjoy an excerpt:

As soon as she opened her eyes, Marcy regretted the decision. The invasion of light brought an immediate headache, at the same time causing her stomach to churn in protest.

Marcy groaned.

She had a hangover and not just any hangover. This was the granddaddy of all hangovers. Along with the pounding headache and bubbling stomach, it hurt to breathe. One wrong move would send her straight for the bathroom.

Ignoring the throbbing in her temples, Marcy did her best to recall what brought her to where she was.

Wait a minute! Exactly where was she?

Bits and pieces of yesterday floated through her mind. The last thing she could remember with any clarity was Robert’s humiliation made worse by Nick’s eavesdropping.

It didn’t seem possible that it was just yesterday that her best friend, Chelsea, married the man of her dreams. The wedding was beautiful and the reception had been one hell of a party. Right up until the part where Robert said he didn’t want a relationship with her.

That much Marcy could remember. Everything that happened afterward was lost on her.

As much as she hated to do it, Marcy opened her eyes again. Trying to move her head as little as possible, she cut her eyes left and then right.

What in the name of God was Nick Singer doing in bed with her?
