(From the publisher):
High roller Skye McNally can't seem to go straight. She wants a thirty-day coin from her Gamblers Anonymous group, but the odds have always been against her. Her father is one of New York's biggest bookies and she's spent most of her life betting the over-under, and learning how to double-down.
Vegas may not be the best place for a gambling addict trying to make sense of her life — so Skye escapes to the Nevada desert. There, she has a chance encounter with Mark Shannon, a star quarterback who's made headlines by disappearing weeks before the Super Bowl. For the first time in her life, Skye discovers that there are some things more intoxicating than the rush of numbers….
But the people invested in Mark's career aren't about to lose their golden boy to a bookie's daughter with a checkered past — and they're willing to play hardball. But don't bet against Skye.
She's always been a woman who knows how to play the long odds…and win.
