Why I Loved This Book
This book had me hooked from start to finish. The story moved quickly and had lots of surprises. The characters felt real. I could understand Fiona’s challenges as a working mom and I admired her for being so strong. I also felt bad for Marshall because he seemed lonely and empty, even though he was so successful. I liked how they pushed each other to be better.
The Love Story
Their love story was sweet and full of passion, but it also felt real. They had to deal with things like trust, commitment, family, and loyalty. They had to give up things and make changes for their love. They had to deal with their pasts and their futures together.
I also really liked the setting. The descriptions of Las Vegas made me feel like I was there with Fiona and Marshall, feeling the excitement of gambling, the beauty of the shows, and the danger of the city’s darker side.
In the conclusion, I think this was a great book that was both fun and moving. It had the perfect mix of romance, drama, suspense, and emotion. It left me feeling happy. If you’re looking for a book that will keep you guessing and make you feel a lot of different things, then I highly recommend “High Stakes” by Danielle Steel.k
