Losing Enough by Helen Boswell {Review}

*Received a free copy in exchange for an honest review

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.

Losing Enough is a New Adult Contemporary Romance.

Alexis is on vacation in the big city of Las Vegas, ready to let loose and have some fun with her long time friend Elle, but her first night back she finds herself in trouble and her rescuer is a very reluctant private security guard named, Connor. Connor's more than rude and wants nothing to do with Alexis or her life, but he can't resist the pleas of Elle, his only real friend. Connor thinks he's done with her once he drops her off, but the world has other plans. So they throw caution to the wind and stop fighting what the city is trying to tell them and ready themselves to have one hell of a heated summer. 

Connor has set up a nice life for himself as a private security guard for Vegas high rollers. He left his troubled life behind him, but one mention of his brother and Connor is defensive. He let's no one in and carries around his dark past like a shadow. It haunts him. But then Alexis walked into his life and begins to test his protective shields with her bright disposition. 

Alexis is on vacation, determined to have nothing but a good time, but when trouble finds her the first night she's there a shadow is cast on her visit. And that shadow is one Connor Vincent, the man that rescued her against his will, the guy that haunts her thoughts with his tall, dark and rugged good looks and brooding attitude. But she won't let him and his panty twisting attitude ruin her vacation.

Neither of them can stand each other. And neither of them can resist each other. They are thrown together by forces around them and it is a true test of wills to see how long they can resist each other. And when they finally stop resisting and fighting it is definitely explosive and HOT! These two heat up the Vegas strip more than the desert heat. Now nothing can keep them apart, that is until trouble in the form of Connor's brother walks into town. 

Now danger haunts them and threatens their fast and hot relationship. They are both tested and tried. And they both must decide what they are willing to Lose. Can they be together? Do they walk away?

When do they know they have lost enough? In Losing Enough we follow Connor and Alexis as they both decide when enough is enough. We see them as they fight what we know is there, as they resist the temptation we all know they long for and desire. We see their deepest thoughts and darkest secrets. We see the very fiber of who they are. And we yell at them as they make stupid mistakes that we know will destroy them. Losing Enough is a story of heat, passion, temptation, love, hurt, and fighting to keep it all. It is the story of never giving up and never giving in. 

Losing Enough is that perfect fast paced read that will deliver you to happiness and make you beg for more.
