    1 thought on “Bad Beat”

    1. This is an OK cover. Good use of graphics. Good representation of the story and hero. OK composition and interesting title work.To start with I am going to admit that I am in a bit of a mood funk today. And I am guessing that played a big part in how nitpicky I was being while reading this one. Pushing that aside I will say that I did enjoy it overall.The writing was good. The pace was excellent and I never felt the need to skim. There was some OW drama that was pointless (IMO) since it didn't c [...]

    2. Despite not wanting to sound like a tween, I have to say it. OMG! Let's see if I can do this book justice. First, let me just say I turned into a total sap when I finished the epilogue. I actually sighed like a lovesick fool. I love that Sarah Curtis went a bit edgy with this story. I'm a sucker for the unemotional Hero and Nico was above and beyond my expectations.After getting a look into what caused the rift between Nico and Alec, this book started off where "All In" ended. We got Nico's POV [...]

    3. It’s like a fairytale except Prince Charming holds a switchblade…While reading Bad Beat, I had to keep reminding myself that Nico was a baddie. Nico is in the Mafia and his Dad is the Big Boss. We learn at the very beginning that it had been Nico's plan from the time he was a child, to work for his Dad. The family connection did not give him a free ride, he had to work and whack a few people to get to his position. But, at times, it was easy to forget that he had a switchblade in his pocket [...]

    4. It's Live! **ARC RECEIVED IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW **After reading book 1 in this series, All In, I was wishing, hoping and praying for a book about Nico. I just knew this man would bring some good alpha.Nico was broody. He didn't let many in. He chose the path of his father - even when it cost him his very best friend (Alec from book 1) at a very young age. It felt like he turned off his emotions and didn't let anyone in. Once he saw Olivia, those walls were put to the test. He often tr [...]

    5. 2nd read and still love it just as much as the first time. I read a book that was very disappointing and needed a good read so picked this one back up and it is so apart of my re-read list! I love the dogs names and I love the idea of bed picnics.Nico Conti was helping his friend Alec with some trouble that his woman's brother brought to her door. In cleaning up the mess he finds out someone is infiltrating on his territory and goes to confront and warn them. While at the office of the man he fi [...]

    6. 5 " I love Nico" stars💜DAMN! after a long time i enjoyed a book this much💜After reading 'Alluring' and 'All in' i knew Sarah curtis writes exactly the type of book i look for but after Nico there is no doubt leftIf you love-   Alpha possessive hero         Sweet heroine         Virgin heroine       Mafia bg       Cute relationshipThen you will definitely love this book! Because for me those facts were enough to enjoy the hell out of this book! I loved each and [...]

    7. I absolutely loved this book! Sarah Curtis knows how to do strong possessive alpha heroes and her latest book Bad Beat has one of the best alphas I’ve read.In the process of following a lead to someone who is doing business in his family’s territory, Nico finds Olivia. She has had a different kind of upbringing and is in the wrong place at the right time. Nico decides she fits into his plan to hold those who injured his friend’s woman accountable. He has no intention of becoming involved w [...]

    8. Give me more!!! I loved every word of this bookWhat I lovedNico! I mean his name alone is freaking sexy but throw in his hard stare and sweet words or when he speaks Italian and I'm done for. He was hard and kinda brutal(in a good way) and oh so sweet to his woman. I loved that even though they met in an odd way it didn't take away from what they built. I loved the story line. And I'm a sucker for any book with some mafia goodness. One wordBrussels sproutsetty sure I spit water all over the plac [...]

    9. This author has fast become a favorite of mine. I haven't read a story by Sarah Curtis that I haven't loved yet. Ever since reading All In, I have been waiting for Nico's story. I was so intrigued by him and what happened between him and Alec that caused their falling out. We know that Nico has mob ties and he is very unapologetic about the path he chose. And even though he and Alec had a falling out, he doesn't hesitate to be there for Alec and River when they needed him most.So Bad Beat begins [...]

    10. 4.5 starsNico is one hot hero. Sarah Curtis writes some of my favorite heroes. She is one of my go to authors when I need a protective, bossy alpha fix and Nico didn't disappoint. I liked Olivia as well. I prefer sweet heroines and she is definitely that. They have so much chemistry and it is definitely a hot read. Highly recommend Bad Beat if you are looking for a sizzling low angst romance.HEA (view spoiler)[Yes (hide spoiler)]Cheating/OW/OM (view spoiler)[ No cheating or scenes with OW/OM (hi [...]

    11. I'm a huge fan of Sarah Curtis's books.She writes books that I know I'm going to love for many reasons, but the two major ones are:1) she writes THE BEST alpha males;2) her books are always safe! No cheating ever!Nico is hotjust look at the cover!! And I loved our h, Olivia. They had great chemistry even though they started out not really liking each other. It's got a bit of suspense to it which I really enjoyed. And the Italian phrases that were used I especially liked.g half Italian, that was [...]

    12. Of course another virgin Why not??I'm not opposed to reading a book with a virgin heroine as long as the hero is one too but we ALL know those are unicorns

    13. Nico Conti, the hero, knew the life he was signing up for when he followed his mafioso father’s footsteps and became a Capo with assigned soldiers to keep his family’s legacy marching forward. Yeah, he’s not the Don yet, but Nico is not to be messed with, folks. Not unless you have a crazy desire to go swimming with the fishes or have an unhealthy fascination with knives. Capiche? Family friend or foe, he’ll come after you in a heartbeat if you mess with what is his. Lucky for us, despit [...]

    14. Even though I like things action packed and edgy when I’m in the mood for alpha sweet, Sarah Curtis is one of the authors I turn to. She consistently gives me funny and sexy reads when I need a break from my darker reads. With Bad Beat I got the super sweet heroine I expected but Ms. Curtis also gave me an actual anti-hero and some grit. What an awesome surprise that was!Olivia is the daughter of a prostitute who was surprisingly sheltered from that by a mother who wanted so much more for her [...]

    15. 4.5 starsThis was like Pretty Woman, mafia-style! I thought Sarah Curtis outdid herself with the first of The Gamblers series, , because, come on, Alec and River were awesome. Nico, though, Nico caught my attention right away. I was bugging Sarah for his book before I finished Alec's!! lol Gotta love them bad boys.And make no mistake, Nico is BAD. His choice to join the family business cost him his best friend and any chance at a good woman. Or so he thought. When he makes a snap decision to kid [...]

    16. This is really a 3.5, but I liked it enough to bump it up to 4 stars. I really didn't like the beginning of this book. I felt that the couple's first time was in poor taste, and I dont feel that the author portrayed Carmine in a severe light until later in the book which made things confusing for me at first. I actually almost DNF'd this book.It wasn't until about 40ish% that I finally started to really enjoy the book. I loved how the H was flawed, but tried to make up for it as much as possible [...]

    17. I liked this book a lot! I wanted to smack the hero a little and tell him to open his eyes already, but actually found myself really enjoying the slow burn. I LOVED how he would do pretty much anything for Olivia by the end, even totally non-badass things. So many times I found myself chuckling. A very enjoyable read, I'm looking forward to going back and reading the first in the series.

    18. LOVED this story! It's done in classic Sarah Curtis style, with a caring alpha hero whom we get to watch fall in love and a sweet heroine who handles life's obstacles with grace and aplomb. It's everything I enjoy in a story and I highly recommend it!

    19. Nico is the perfect kind of anti-hero <3 This is by far my favorite read from this author and I knew from just the blurb that this was going to be my kind of read. I would consider this pretty safe for anyone, there is very little ow drama and the heroine was a mix of sweet and a little bit of feisty which I loved. I would recommend this to anyone who loves a brooding alpha male/Mafia man who can also fall weak for the woman that he loves.

    20. ***ARC provided in exchange for honest review***Bad Beat is the second book of The Gamblers series by Sarah Curtis. It can be read as a standalone, but treat yourself by reading All-In first.Nico Conti is the handsome but ruthless Capo of his father’s mob family. He’s not looking for any type or relationship and he especially does not want to waste his time with any emotional entanglements. He never planned on meeting Olivia Miller but when did, she stirred feelings in him so foreign that he [...]

    21. I love Sarah Curtis books. She has a way of giving us Fairytales but in such a unique way. You know you going on a beautiful journey each time you read her book. Bad Beat was no different this time. Bad Beat captured my attention from the Prologue. Nico caught my attention and really I can't tell you why but he did and boy was I so Damn thrilled he did. This book gave me so many feels. At times it felt Beauty and the Beast and then Cinderella. It really was my kinda book just told in my kinda Na [...]

    22. I'm new at this reviewing, so please bear with me. I had to read this book twice, why? Once for myself and once for the book itself. When your reading a book by one of your favorite authors, it's hard to be unbiased. So hince the reading twice. On both counts, the author had pulled me into the story by the second page. Where on the first reading, I kept waiting for the trouble to begin, as in her other books, it didn't come about in the way I was expecting. Was I disappointed? No, not in the lea [...]

    23. 4.5/5Safe read* Full disclosure: the first night meeting h, H was disturbed about how obsessed he was with her, thinking he needed to get laid he call up a booty call asking her to come over, as soon as he hangs up he cancels it, regretting his decision right away*^still consider this safe (just barley)!-insta love-H was a bit of a man who're it seems but it was not harped on-OW Drama from a women H has never even touched-OTT alpha male-Darker read-virgin h - the "I love you's" were harder for H [...]

    24. WOWI just loved it. I currently stuck in bed recovering from a medical snaffoo and I read the first chapter of 4 book before this. Had me so engrossed I miss taking meds by 1/2 hr. No cheating/OW, no spelling or grammatical errors I could discern. Nico Conti is just gorgeous and Olivia is innocent but in no way an airhead. Thanks Mz Curtis I will definitely be reading more of your wonderful tales.

    25. I love insta-love books but this book seemed even better when the H thinks he is so bad that he doesn't recognize what he feels is live until it is almost too late. What is better than hearing "I live you" is a man showing you everyday and everyway. Man, I loved Nico!!!! Olivia was perfect for him. I highly recommend this book! ARC given to me for review. Swooning was an additional benefit!

    26. Loved this book. Devoured it. check out my 5star Review on our Blog Pagesheilasbookcorner.wordpress
