In the second book of the Special Delivery series,
Jensen gets his turn at a happily ever after. Along with the
thrill that comes with gambling, Randy finds pleasure in
meeting Ethan Ellison, an inexperienced gambler.
Randy has a heart-stopping smile and his confidence pours
out of him while Ethan is more reserved, harbouring
vulnerabilities that are explored in this book, leading to
the question of, how much of his heart will Ethan wager in
this game of love?
Though total opposites, Heidi Cullinan manages to create a
believable romance between the two. As fast as they take it,
Cullinan builds their relationship through humor,
scenes. The author doesn't stray from the idea of multiple
heartbreaking moments, as well as hotter than hell sex
partners, leaving little to the imagination and creating an
inferno of hotness as a result.
In addition to that, Cullinan also gives readers updates on
Sam and Mitch, the couple from the previous book and
explores the trials and tribulations of marriage. It is
always nice to read about familiar characters and as
Cullinan continues on with this series, she is building a
family of characters that readers have come to love with
each instalment in the series.
DOUBLE BLIND combines the thrill of gambling away one's
heart with the exploration of dark desires in this humorous
but also heartwarming story.
Know when to show your hand…and when to hedge your bets.
