Losing Enough by Helen Boswell 
(A Second Chances Novel #1) 
Publication date: April 30th 2014
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

When Alexis Lin heads to Sin City for the summer, she wants nothing more than to dive into the clubs, spas, and concerts – the benefits of her father’s high roller lifestyle. On her first night in the city, Alexis gets into trouble at a club but walks away from it with the help of Connor Vincent. Private security guard to the top gamblers, Connor is all charm with his clients, but he's the anti-Prince Charming when it comes to women. Connor doesn’t have time for romance. He has his own problems to deal with, including his wild card of a brother who has come to town to collect on a past debt. 

Alexis and Connor's unlikely chemistry heats things up as chance again conspires to throw them together. The stakes become even higher when unexpected tragedy strikes Alexis’ family and when Connor’s brother threatens to ruin the life that Connor has worked so hard to build. To come out ahead of the game, Alexis must be brave enough to listen to her heart, Connor must finally face up to his past, and both must decide how much they're willing to lose.

Sometimes risking your heart is the biggest gamble of all.

Connor's POV
I move forward until I’m only inches away from her and she has to tilt up her head up to look at my face. Her lips part, her cheeks reddening. It’s stupid, but I feel a sort of twisted sense of pride that I made the cool girl blush.

“I’m gonna kiss you, okay?”

“That’s not even a legitimate question,” she breathes.

“I know,” I say.

She drifts over to me, her leg brushing against mine, and the way she’s looking at me is like an open invitation. I move my hand through the water and find her, run my hand across her hip. Damn, her skin is so soft, her curves so sexy. I keep my touch light but really want to grab her and pull her over to me.

“So?” She challenges. “You going to kiss me or not?”

My mouth tilts up in a sideways smile. She’s fiery, and I like that. That’s why I originally came here looking for her, and this… this is just extra but now that the moment’s here, I want it. Hell, I think I need it. I thread my fingers through her hair, press my lips to hers and drink her up with a soft kiss. She moans against me, and that kills the soft for me. I take the kiss deeper, and fuck, how she responds, matching every stroke of my tongue with hers, her taste deliciously sweet, her fingers knotting hard in my hair before raking over my shoulders and down my back.

I want to get closer to her. Want it so fucking bad, but there’s too much water stirring between us. I slip my hands around her waist, and she pushes her body up against mine. We’re skin on skin, slick and hard against wet and soft. It’s like every touch of hers leaves a charge behind that electrifies and pulses through me. I’m rock hard, and my hand slides down to grab that gorgeous ass of hers as I grind against her.

A small sound of need escapes her throat, and I groan. I seriously consider carrying her out of the pool and finding an open room so we can continue this in private. Her room. Laundry room. Somewhere. Anywhere but here.

She breaks off the kiss, tilts her head back as I lean down to suck on the very sexy curve where her neck meets her shoulder. “My God,” she moans.

I smile against her skin. “Not yet I’m not.”

My Review:
Losing Enough is AMAZEBALLS! 

Alexis is in her early twenties, she knows what she wants to do with her life. But after going to Las Vegas for the summer, everything changes! 

On her first night in Vegas, Alexis has a few drinks, and some JERK almost takes advantage of her……and here comes Connor! OH-MY-CONNOR! 

Connor, is serious about his job, and doesn’t want to get close to any girl, but when he meets Alexis, he can’t stop thinking about her. But Alexis is not having any of it, when she goes to a concert with her friend and her mom, Connor, shows up to the venue, and gets invited to see the concert with them. Alexis starts to see Connor in a whole new light. I LOVED Connor from the very beginning, how can you not love him!??! Yes, he may have BIG problems going on, but he will stop at nothing to protect Alexis. 

Losing Enough, had me crying, laughing, and makes me want to go to Las Vegas, for the summer, maybe I can find my own Connor ;) 

THANK YOU to my friend Helen Boswell for letting me read Losing Enough early! I LOVE her books, she is a wonderful author! I definitely recommend this book to everyone!

Helen Boswell loved to get lost in the pages of a story from the time she could sound out the words. Originally from upstate New York, Helen spent much of her early adult life tromping around in Buffalo, NYC, Toronto, and Las Vegas, those cities now serving as inspiration for the dark and gritty urban backdrops of her stories. An author of both urban fantasy and contemporary romance, she loves to read and write characters that come to life with their beauty, flaws, and all.

Helen dedicates her time to raising her family of two boys, teaching college students, and of course, writing.
