Meghan Quinn and Jessica Prince
I make my living as a hustler, and I’m great at it.
I don’t have a single tell and I use that to my advantage to manipulate any situation.
I’ve always known what a person is about to do before they’ve even decided.
That is, until I met Penelope.
I can’t get a read on her, and what’s worse, she doesn’t want anything to do with me.
Which only makes me want her more.
Now I’m in for the hardest hustle of my life.
Somehow I have to convince her she belongs with me.
Good thing I’m always up for a challenge.

I’m going to be honest here. When I first saw this book on NetGalley I didn’t want to request it mostly because of the cover. Yeah I was judging a book by its cover but I really thought this book wasn’t my style. Luckily Cristina tried to convince me to request it and I’m so happy she did that and I did request this book because I loved it. Just ignore this cover because this has nothing to do with the book.
I loved this book. This is another of that books that was really addictive and I couldn’t stop reading it. This book was hilarious. I can’t even count how many times I laughed while reading this book. I really enjoyed this book and its characters and it was actually pretty different from what I was expecting. As I said before I really enjoyed all the characters in this book. Penelope was really feisty and sarcastic and I loved her. Gavin was really cocky, let’s be real, and at first it’s impossible to like him but it was really possible to see how much he changed after meeting Penelope and how much they helped each other. These two had an amazing chemistry and I started rooting for them pretty soon. Not only I loved the main characters but I also loved the side characters. I can’t stop thinking how hilarious Page, Penelope’s best friend and roommate, was. Every scene Page appeared I would laugh a lot. I really hope this ends up being a series because I need to know what happened between Page and Graham and I also want to know more about Scott and Davies. I need books about them because I already started loving these characters in this book.
I also really love the story and the Las Vegas and poker setting and let’s not forget one of my favorite things, the dual POV. I love a good dual POV and this was a good dual POV. I loved how distinct their voices were. Also, as I said before, this book was really addictive and had a fast-pacing so it was pretty easy to read it.
Overall, this was a really good read. I can’t wait to read more books written by Meghan Quinn and Jessica Prince and if the books are about the side characters from Hustler I would be even happier to read them. If you like new adult romance and cocky main characters you should give this one a try.
Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it? If you haven’t read it would you read it?
