Vegas Baby

Author:  Winter Renshaw

Genre:  Adult Contemporary Romance

Publication Date:  January 24, 2016

Synopsis:

Crew Forrester is the ultimate Vegas playboy.

He’s never played a card game he couldn’t beat and never met a showgirl he couldn’t bed. He plays by his own rules, and he plays to win.

At twenty-four, he’s on top of the world, basking in his bachelorhood one debaucherous night at a time, when an early morning knock on his door changes everything.

He’s a daddy. He has a daughter. And he’s never changed a diaper in his life.

But just when he’s getting a grip on this whole fatherhood thing, he meets Calypso, the intriguing lavender-and-patchouli-scented hippie in the apartment next door. She refuses to discuss her past, but Crew didn’t win a dozen high stakes poker tournaments without learning a thing or two about reading people.

She’s hiding something.

But Calypso’s not just a mystery, she’s the ultimate jackpot. And Crew’s bet money before but never happiness. If he wants her, he’ll have to take the biggest gamble of his life. But having her for his own would be the ultimate win.

AUTHOR’S NOTE: This is a standalone, full-length romance (~70k words) with a HEA.

My Review:

Rating:  4/5 stars!

Vegas Baby is a sweet, hot romance that I had trouble putting down.

Crew is a player, literally and figuratively.  A poker player in Vegas, his life is all about playing cards and playing women.  That is until one of his previous conquests drops a baby on his doorstep and walks away.  Suddenly, Crew is faced with fatherhood and his entire life is about to change.

Calypso grew up on a commune (read cult), but eventually left after she was betrayed by someone she loved.  Now she’s living in Vegas and owns a failing bookstore.  Her dream is to go to a writing school in Illinois.  She just happens to be Crew’s neighbor, although neither of them knows it.

One day, he walks into her bookstore and buys up all the baby books in the store.  An offer to deliver the books leads to her discovering he is her neighbor, a guy she calls The Jackhammer.  Hmm…

Vegas Baby has it all…babies, hot boys, meddling families, messed up family lives and, of course, romance and sex.  I enjoyed it and I think you all will, too!
