Blog Tour, Rachel's Review & Giveaway: The Gamble by Xavier Neal

Book: The Gamble
Author: Xavier Neal
Genre: Contemporary Romance


3 friends. 2 players. 1 bet

When Luca Larson makes an expensive wager, guaranteeing the bedding of his only real female friend, he's expecting the situation to go as smoothly as sleeping with any other woman would. It doesn't take long before he realizes his usual plays won't work. She knows them too well. She knows HIM too well. If Luca wants to win, he'll have to do things he's never done before. Friendships will be challenged. Hearts will be broken. Lives will be inevitably changed. But one question will remain. Was it all worth the gamble?

This was my first read by Xavier Neal.  What I found most enjoying was the "dialog with the reader" by both characters, Luca and Alexxa.  It was flipping hilarious. The writing was great in and of itself, but the witty banter and the constant sarcasm made this a great read.  Not to mention I'm a sports freak myself, so The Gamble was like a fastball across the heart of the plate; easily taken for a ride.
The characters are really SO likeable.  I mean really, you may not LIKE what Luca epitomizes but he's just so flippin funny and good at what he does. Alexxa, best friend to Luca and Warren (Luca's roommate) and she fits in just like one of the guys. She's just as funny, just as sarcastic and a great all around match for Luca...until she's more.
Great characters, great writing.
