All In: The Complete Series

by Alessandra Torre

 

Book 0.5
Rolling the Dice
There is little that I can actually say that would hide the fact that I loved this, despite the fact I read it after the first two books in the series, it mattered not a single jot! I was stunned at just how much sense and sensuality that the author was able to pack into this short read, that certainly punched high and hard.
The passion between the two of them was hot and heavy, the fact that there had been an almost love /hate vibe bantering back between the two of them for longer than I would have believed bearable. But there was more going on under the surface than either of them knew or understood and by the time the blinkers were off, and their true feelings became clear I was delirious!

Book One:
Even Money
In true Alexandra Torre style, this took the moody and mysterious and gave it room to not just breath but flex its sizable muscles…and the result was sensational.
Even Money is everything I never knew I needed so far and I am delighted to have not just finished it but to be counting down the days until the next book is released.
Set in Vegas, the story is that of Bell, a waitress at one of the city casino’s when she isn’t at college or finding herself knee-deep in all sorts of shady goings-on that she has no idea how to deal with. She may think she is street-savvy but falling for the charms of the sophisticated, suited Dario Capece may not be the smartest move she’s ever likely to make because if there is something untoward or underhand going on the married Mr. Capece is very much up to his neck in it!
Packed from first to the last page with more twists and turns than you could possibly shake a stick at or even begin to comprehend, this was dangerous, dark and totally delicious.
I found the dynamic between Bella and Dario was scintillating, they set the page alight with both passion and presence. Oh, and if you think you get away without a cliff-hanger of an ending…think again because this one will knock you on your a**.

Book Two:
Double Down
I could be controversial and say that I didn’t get it, but I would be lying through my teeth because I totally got each and every word of this book and I loved them all. There must be a list of superlatives as long as my arm that I could bring out to try and describe the book but I don’t think that any of them do it justice, this was a fabulous romance that was equally tempered with an awesome element of suspense.
The characters we fantastic, they truly spoke to me and I found that I knew not only what I wanted but what I needed for them. There was angst levelled throughout the book that when it was given the opportunity to bubble to the surface, was breath-taking…the drama was edge of the seat stuff and there was no let-up.
Dario and Bell brought so much to the page that at times it was more than I could handle and I was left frantically flicking back to see what I had missed…so please pay attention, you need every clue that the author and characters give you.
I loved the way Darion cared so deeply for Bell, his focus being all about her and as a powerful and very wealthy man, he had no hesitation when it came to putting her before everything else in his life…but when danger came a calling, could he keep her safe?
I would live the opportunity to revisit not just Dario and Bell but also a few of the other prominent characters that I think I might not have quite finished with so I have everything crossed that the author may give them all a reprieve…I can wish, can’t I??
