Nadia Wolf is like any young lady who knows what she’s good at and takes a gamble to make a living. Nadia lives above a marriage chapel in the revered gambling city of Las Vegas. She is a poker player by day and helps a dear friend and soon to be manager, Frankie, at his chapel. I can’t forget to mention Gus, the on-a-diet-cat, which may be a tad grouchy but loving all the same.
Nadia, a beautiful and clumsy woman all in one, takes her poker seriously. She has a couple eligible bachelors interested, both rich, both handsome, and both want her for more than a turn of the cards.
Her problem is she’s attracted to both, yet doesn’t want to mix poker with relationships. Instead a deadly game with another player (poker player I mean) wants to put her underground. She needs help from more than one bachelor and a touch of flirting doesn’t hurt.
The Nadia Wolf series is right up there with the Stephanie Plum series full of quirks, giggles, and a few serious mishaps. I have hope for Nadia’s well-being and her eventual capture of that special man. I haven’t finished the series yet, but I certainly hope she’s happy at the end and encourage you to find out, too!
I laughed,I obsessed and I rooted for the heroine. I couldn't put it down. Now I have to get the next one to find out how it will turn out. I really would have given it five stars if it had a end.
Nadia is being romantically pursued by two men - the manager of the casino in which she plays, and a fellow poker player who has reached the place that she would like to be in her own poker career. While she's turned on by both of them, and a bit jealous of other women in their lives, she spends a great deal of her time trying to convince herself that neither is the right one for a long-term relationship.
There is sufficient action and intrigue to keep the pages turning, but the poker portion of the story, which admittedly has a minor role in the overall scheme of things, was poorly researched. When the story opens Nadia is playing in a portion of the World Series of Poker that sounds suspiciously like the main event of that multi-faceted tournament, but in reality is more like a tournament out of the World Poker Tour. While it may not be important to the target audience for these books, it seems to me that getting the details correct is important when using an actual event as part of the backdrop for your story.
