Hell On Heels

Hotel Rodeo Book #1

by Victoria Vane




Some Odds are Meant to be Played…


The Hotel Rodeo in Las Vegas has seen better days, but managing partner Ty Morgan has come up with a way to return it to its former glory. His plan looks promising until the unthinkable happens. Suddenly Ty is working for the boss’s daughter. And Miss Monica Brandt, hot as she may be, doesn’t share his vision…


She left a fabulous career and a frustrated fiancé in New York to move to Vegas and save her father’s investment. But now Monica is locking horns with a sexy cowboy-turned-businessman. What does Ty think he can do that she can’t? All Monica knows is that she doesn’t dare trust him—or is it herself she doesn’t trust…


The battle lines are drawn. The stakes are high. And the attraction can’t be denied—especially the more closely Ty and Monica have to work together. Some odds are just meant to be played, and with chemistry this electric, it may be time to grab life by the horns…


My Rating:

3.5 hearts


Favorite Quotes:


“She wouldn’t be hard on the eyes if she didn’t always look like she’d been sucking lemons.”


“Looking out of the expanse of the desert, she almost forgot to breathe.  The first rays of dawn had begun to spread fingers of light toward the distant horizon, slowly dispersing the lingering shadows.”


My Review:


I find I am struggling to care for the main character of Monica – I find her annoying.  The story is rife with conflict between the two main characters, which is not one of my favorite tropes, and the vast majority of the problem is Monica – hence my frustration with her.  She has been rude, arrogant, condescending and demanding, so I am finding her more than a bit hard to swallow at this point.   I know it is just the first installment but I was expecting a romance, and there really hasn’t been one so far, but I am ever hopeful as I ease into the second installment.
