I make my living as a hustler, and I’m great at it.
I don’t have a single tell and I use that to my advantage to manipulate any situation.
I’ve always known what a person is about to do before they’ve even decided.

That is, until I met Penelope.
I can’t get a read on her, and what’s worse, she doesn’t want anything to do with me.
Which only makes me want her more.

Now I’m in for the hardest hustle of my life.
Somehow I have to convince her she belongs with me.
Good thing I’m always up for a challenge.

What can I say except Hustler was a fun read!! It was just what I needed; two stubborn characters who constantly bicker with one another, that have sexual tension that's off the charts! I loved the humour entwined throughout the book, as well as characters that were very opinionated and pushed each other’s buttons! However, both Penelope and Gavin had issues that they needed to get past before being able to find happiness.

Penelope was a struggling gymnast and a cocktail waitress in the highroller room at Hotel Paragon. Whatever money she earns was to help support her parents back home, as well as her everyday expenses while living in Vegas. She’s a feisty girl and stands up to people who push her too far. But when she meets Gavin Saint, he seems to push her buttons and she is unsure how to handle him.

Gavin was a confident but arrogant man, who knew what he wanted and would do anything to get Penelope. I liked that he was a poker player that could read people easily. He could see that Nell was interested in him but didn’t understand why she wouldn’t bend to his will.

I loved seeing these two together, the constant push and pull was entertaining! They had some serious chemistry, but Nell tried to keep Gavin away as she focused on chasing her dream and supporting her family. Gavin wanted to get Nell out of his system, but the more time he spent with her, the deeper she got under his skin.

I’ve read Quinn’s work previously, but this is the first time I have read anything by Prince. Together they have delivered a sexy, romantic comedy that I devoured quickly. I was hooked from start to finish and each twist had me eager to see what would happen next. I enjoyed meeting the secondary characters too, they often helped guide Nell and Penelope together. I could see that they may pair up as well, and look forward to reading their stories.

Hehe... there's a lot of funny moments between these two, but I giggled at this one. They are attracted to one another but continue to banter!

“You’re telling me you just spent the entire night watching Nick’s penis on CCTV?” I cock a brow high on my forehead. “And you’re sure you’re not gay?”
My plan backfires the instant I feel his lips on mine in a hard, hungry kiss that weakens my knees. Gavin swallows my moan as his tongue duels with mine in an erotic battle. All too soon, he pulls away, grabbing my right hand and sliding it over the fly of his trousers, instinctively, my fingers wrap around his thick, hard length as best they can with the barrier of his clothing in the way. “Still think I’m gay, Miss Prescott?” he asks as he guides my hand up and down, thrusting his hips into my hold.
Stepping away from my grip, he eases me off the wall and turns me towards the high roller suite doors, his hands on my waist as he steps in close one last time, his chest to my back. “I’ll break you down sooner or later,” he whispers in my ear, “and I can’t fucking wait. Now get back to work.”

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
