Review: Double Down

Double Down Double Down by Alessandra Torre
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Final Score - 4.5 Stars!

I love reading book series and I have to admit, I was a little nervous about what possible direction this book could go after reading the first.  It wasn't a sense of disappointment that had me in fear, but rather that after the events of the last book, Bell and Dario wouldn't get their HEA.  Needless to say, I worried for naught!  It was just the journey to get there that left me reeling with all the twists and turns. 

Once again, Ms. Torre's writing style sucked me in and I remained so until the climatic end.
She has simple outdone herself!  The pace, the engagement, the drama ... had me on the edge of my seat.  And as always, the sex scenes left me panting. 

I was saddened that secondary characters such as Rick, Lance, and Meredith weren't around as much - but after I finished the book I understood why they took a significant back seat to the main character focus.  I do hope we see a spin off series with these characters as I feel that there is story for them to be written (*hint, HINT).  The introduction of a new character - Laurent - left me intrigued.  I wanted more a backstory to him and his exact relationship with Dario.  Hopefully, he'll be considered as well for a spin-off book?

The chemistry between Bell and Dario - whoa!  A definite page turner and pant inducer!  Their devotion towards each other in the face of the events from the last book just solidified for me that this couple just can't be stopped.   I knew this book was going to be great and I was not disappointed! 

Now, can we talk about those spin-off books?
