REVIEW - Going All In (Heat Wave #4) by Alannah Lynne
Release Date: 30 September 2014
A good ol’ Georgia boy teaches a Myrtle Beach princess how to get down and dirty…
It’s been two years since Callie Holden helped put her father in prison, and since then, she’s learned a lot about life and herself. To Callie’s surprise, she actually likes working and has learned money is a tool to be used for good… or evil. She also realizes that even though she’s traveled the globe, she’s never truly lived. She longs for adventure and to experience a wildly passionate romance. The last place she expects to discover her dreams is in the arms of the ever-surly man she’s dubbed “The Beast.” But when they’re forced to work together, unexpected chemistry changes everything. In Wade Neumann’s arms, Callie finds the excitement and passion she’s been looking for, as well as a few other surprises.
Wade Neumann has spent the last year burying the pain and humiliation of being left at the altar by a woman who used him as a novelty toy before settling down with someone like herself—someone rich. He’s lost himself in a stream of nameless females, but instead of the trysts helping him heal, he’s only grown colder and more jaded. He hasn’t moved on with his life. He’s merely stuck going through the motions… until he meets Callie Holden, a woman who looks like his ex but is actually the opposite—sweet, compassionate, loyal, and most importantly, not rich. Or so he thinks. Because just as he starts to believe things with Callie are real and true, she gives him thirty million reasons to doubt all over again. (l
My Opinion 5 STARS
I really enjoyed this book. It has taken me a while to be able to get back to this series but Callie's story was well worth the wait.
Callie starts off as a bit prudish and stuck in her previous ways, but she wants to branch out and become someone she can be proud of. We get to see her metamorphosis from shy to bold and taking what she wants from Wade.
We met Wade in Kevin and Sams story where he was dumped by his finance just one week before his wedding. He has a few hang ups to work through, however Callie's sweet nature and innocence tempt him back to the living like no other has.
We also get to see that both characters are loyal to their friends and have large hearts that are easily hurt, yet they are both able to see deeper than a lot of other.
I would recommend this series to other readers.
