I enjoyed the first couple of books (Crossing Hearts and Defending Hearts). This one was a disappointment. Brendan and Erin had a one night stand several months ago. They cross paths again, at a Gamblers Anonymous meeting. Both are gamblers.
I enjoy flawed characters, if they are likable and if what they do is redeemable. I didn't like Erin's actions. I felt what she did made her untrustworthy and very unforgivable. She was in a position of power and abused that power. The end goal didn't justify what she did.
Brendan was likable and I could sympathize with him. His motivations were understandable.
