Review: Gamble in Gold by Natalie Anderson

Title: Gamble in Gold (Flirting to Win Novella)
Author: Natalie Anderson
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Source: Publisher Request (Entangled: Indulgence)
Reviewed by: Jasmyn

Seven years have passed since shy Lexie Peterson had her heart trampled by her teenage crush. And Luke Marchetti walks into his flat to find Lexie in a negligee, all he can think of is having a little flirt and fling. But Lexie’s determination to keep him at a distance makes him realize she deserves more than he can offer. Is one kiss enough to entice the two to take a gamble on love?

This one was a little too short for me.  The story went flying by so fast I couldn't get to know the characters.  There wasn't time to introduce any side stories or people (except the dog - who I think is awesom).  A story about a tough guy putting on a show to hide his true feelings from the shy sensitive girl he's loved for years.  Their love was forbidden as children, and now she doesn't trust him.  I think if the story had been fleshed out a little more I could have connected better, but there wasn't enough time to develop the the way I liked.

The story was good though, but I always have a soft spot for London.  There are a few very humorous scenes were we get to see a glimpse of the people under their masks.
