Product description

Product Description

3 friends. 2 players. 1 bet.

When Luca Larson makes an expensive wager, guaranteeing the bedding of his only real female friend, he's expecting the situation to go as smoothly as sleeping with any other woman would. It doesn't take long before he realizes his usual plays won't work. She knows them too well. She knows HIM too well. If Luca wants to win, he'll have to do things he's never done before. Friendships will be challenged. Hearts will be broken. Lives will be inevitably changed. But one question will remain. Was it all worth the gamble?

I have never read anything by this author before but intend on reading more!
Luca, Warren and Alexxa are all best friends until Luca bets Warren he can bed Alexxa by summers end.
Luca is a confident, self absorbed alpha who goes through women like he changes his jocks!
Alexxa is a sassy, smart, intuitive lady who recognises Luca for what he is.
I really liked the development of the relationship even though at times I could have cheerfully slapped Luca! LOL
Mixed in throughout the narrative is each lead character's conversation with the reader. Whilst it certainly has some extremely humorous elements, at times it seemed to take over a bit. That is why I've given it 4 1/2 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sure Bet!!! 22 June 2016
By Libraavidreader - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Ms. Xavier Neal, writing voice is real, exquisite, passionate, funny and has the ability to resonate on every level.

Luca, is sexy, funny and as honest as he can be. Alexxa, is a strong woman, who has it together. You can't help but fall for both of them and want to cheer them on.

The love scenes are hot spicy and yet tender, the relationship is realistic and rooted in friendship.

I love everything about this book,
**** spoiler **** the shower scene! Okay I've said enough.
4.0 out of 5 stars Worth The Gamble!!! 9 May 2017

Alexxa and Luca story starts off on the wrong foot. Luca bets one best friend he can nail the other best friend, Alexxa. Thinking it would be mere child's play to add her as a notch on his belt turned into an hilarious, jealous-filled, joy ride for the reader. Luca had to humbly play the only card he had left and that was to be Himself, but also to be giving, sharing, and patient. His cockiness got on my nerves but Alexxa bringing him down a few notches makes it all worth while. I love how Ms. Neal does her thing and makes the Hero and Heroine really come to grips of who they are and see thr need for improvement. Self-reflection at its finest! This is your basic best friends turned lovers story but with a twist. But remember this "written in the stars" romance started on a bet...Will Alexxa find out about it? And if so, how will it effect their relationship? I truly couldn't put the book down and I didnt know what would happened until the very end. For all romantics, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved The Gamble!!! 22 June 2016
By Camille - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Darn it Xavier, you've hooked me again! I absolutely loved this story. The characters are relatable, yet so turned up. Luca is the lovable A-hole you wanna nut punch and kiss at the same time. Alexxa is a sassy smack talking strong female lead. I love this (and to be honest, the Senses series as well) for the friendship you see before the romance. I love seeing the foundation, the build up of the relationship, the huge let down and the redemption of the characters. Its easy to find yourself so invested in these well developed characters. Feeling anxious when they do and wanting it all to work out in the end. I love a story I get invested in, and The Gamble certainly is something to invest in.
5.0 out of 5 stars I love when Xavier gives us a hero who we really ... 11 July 2016
By Sheri Bishop - Published on

I love when Xavier gives us a hero who we really don't like, who seems to have his head up his rear, who we just know we aren't ever going to like. But then, surprise, Xavier writes him so he softens our heart just a little and that's his "in". And before we know it, there he is, in our heart in a big way. Luca, the hero of The Gamble, is one of those heroes and believe me when I tell you, at the beginning I just knew there was NO way he was going to be a character I could warm up to. But by the the time I read "the end", there he was - - in my heart like a worm in an apple.

Of course, we can't forget about Alexxa. There she is, our smart strong heroine. She knows Luca is not the man to fall in love with, she knows all he'll do is hit it and quit it. But......but.....he worms into her heart, just like he wormed his way into ours. But when he messes up (I mean, c'mon, we all knew he was gonna), she's strong enough to walk away from him, even though he still holds her heart. I can honestly say......I want to be one of Xavier's heroines when I grow up. Please, Xavier, please, can I be??

So all in all, Xavier has written us another masterpiece!!

How can you literally rip my heart out like that??? This one was amazing and I hope there is more of Luca and Alexxa. The actual chemistry they had was one for the almanac. I wish I could put more than 5 stars but I can't.
