ARC Review --> Gambling on the Bodyguard (What Happens in Vegas, #8) by Sarah Ballance

Title: Gambling on the Bodyguard
Series: What Happens in Vegas, #8
Author: Sarah Balance
Release Date: Available Now
Publisher: Entangled Lovestruck
ARC provided by Publisher



He’ll guard her body all night long…

Ski instructor Ellie Montgomery hits Vegas during a romance convention to meet the man of her dreams…only, the man of her dreams isn’t the cover model she’s there to see. He’s the hot-as-sin bodyguard who catches her sneaking in the back door of a meet-and-greet, and he seems more than ready to do what it takes to prove he’s twice the man her pretty boy crush could ever be.

Jax Mathis couldn’t resist snagging a date with Ellie, but he didn’t count on the attraction being more than physical. They connect on a level he didn’t think possible—and he can’t run fast enough. She makes him want things he thought he’d never have, and maybe, just maybe, they’re within reach. But to have it, he’ll have to face the one mountain he swore he’d never climb...and with no guarantee she’ll be waiting on the other side.

4 stars

I really liked this book. I enjoyed the characters, the plot, the steaminess and getting to know the characters a little bit more than what this series usually lets you.
At the very beginning you could tell that Jax and Ellie had some amazing chemistry between the two. And it also proves to be true through the rest of the book.
Ellie’s had a better life than Jax, but I wouldn’t say it has been perfect for her. At a young age Jax lost one of the most important people in his life and still to this day he hasn’t gotten over it. Jax doesn’t want nothing series. Nor does Ellie. But you know things don’t go the way they are planned and for Ellie and Jax they don’t.
I really liked Ellie’s character. She wasn’t one of those one’s that are whiney and complained about everything. Nope, she done things herself is something needed done.
Jax is most definitely an alpha. Which is what I loved about him. I hate the little sissy prissy guys that need more maintenance than a freaking woman.

Overall, it was a quick and steamy read with some cute romance, a set of great characters and a good plot line.
