USA Today Bestselling Author Kennedy Layne brings you the thrilling conclusion to the Office Roulette trilogy…
Gareth Nicollet had been born into wealth, but he’d learned at an early age that money wasn’t everything it was cracked up to be. Regrettably, he’d made a meaningful choice early on in his life that now threatened his future with the woman he loved.
Cynthia Ellsworth valued many things, but trust and loyalty were at the top of her list. She’d always known the man who shared her bed had secrets, but she never thought in a million years that he had the ability to destroy her career and her heart with a single blow.
Someone once said that greed was balanced by fear, but that wasn’t entirely true when there was nothing left to lose. Unfortunately, Gareth’s secret is the very reason the roulette wheel is spinning and Cynthia’s life hangs in the balance.
I’m going to repeat what I said at the start of the review for book 2 in this series. Please read the previous books before starting this. You really don’t have a chance of untangling all the machinations, character intersections and potential suspects if you come to this book blind.
I will admit, that I had a number of suspects in mind. And I kept changing my ideas about whodunnit as the story unfolded. I won’t give away the identity of the villain of the piece, but what I will say is that my guess was wrong. Very wrong.
This entire series has been about misdirection and tension underpinning a complementary romance arc. They work well together. The author has woven each so that the couple’s spotlight piece works well as a standalone, but also ties into the overall plot.
This was, for me, a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
