PLAYED: A Small Town Billionaire Romance
(Reckless Falls, #5)
Publication date: May 16th 217
Genres: Adult, Romance
I was just about to ruin the biggest deal of my career when I ran into Charlie Kendall.
Literally. She hit me with her car.
The luckiest fender-bender in history helped make me even richer than I already am.
Seems like she’s my uptight wreck of a good luck charm. She just doesn’t know it. She’s too weighed down with a son to take care of and a mountain of stress on her shoulders.
She has no idea how to have fun.
But I’m ready to teach her.
I figured I’d only be in Reckless Falls until the deal closes and then split. I never stay in the same place for too long.
But all that changes when Charlie decides to take a chance for once.
She has no idea how sexy she is.
Or how badly I want to taste her again and again.
But I’m going to show her.
I’m ready to play her game.
And Jameson Tellar always plays to win.
AUTHOR’S NOTE: This steamy billionaire romance is set in the world of Reckless Falls but can be read as a complete standalone!
Once inside, we stood in the entryway and I stared at the miles and miles of jangling slot machines with my mouth open. As Jameson said something to the front desk people, I watched as people just poured money into the machines. Dollar bill after dollar bill after twenty-dollar bill. I could pay my bills five times over with the amount of money that the people were pissing away.
It made my fists clench.
I turned, ready to tell Jameson that I didn’t want to do this after all, but when I looked at him I saw that his eyes were gleaming. “Wanna play?” he asked, taking my arm.
I swallowed. “I didn’t… I didn’t bring much cash,” I lied. I didn’t actually bring any at all. Didn’t have any at all.
“Here,” he said, reaching into his wallet and pulling out a twenty and pressed it into my hand.
I looked at where it lay in palm like I had never seen money before. “What do I do with it?” I asked.
“You know how to play cards?” he asked.
“Nope.” I shook my head. Embarrassment was starting to crawl in heated fingers across my cheeks. This was way out of my league. I had no clue, what was I thinking? This wasn’t my world. This wasn’t where I belonged. These weren’t my people. And Jameson, he was definitely on a different plane from me.
But I refused to be ashamed about it. “No,” I said, lifting my chin. “I don’t know how to play cards. I’m not a gambler.”
I expected him to be irritated, but Jameson just smiled. “Okay, then just stick it in the slot machines then,” he said. “It’s kind of hard to screw that up.”
I turned and walked over to the nearest one. “Just stick it in there?”
His eyes twinkled a little, and the corners of his mouth turned upward. “Yeah,” he said with a mischievous grin. “Just stick it in there.”
Suppressing a laugh at the middle school joke, I slid Jameson’s twenty-dollar bill into the slot machine. “Now what?”
He leaned over me. I could feel the way the heat was rising off his skin. The millimeter of space that separated us was electrically charged. “Well now, let’s see if you get lucky,” he said in that same low voice as before.
