Review:The All-Star Antes Up by Nancy Herkness

The All-Star Antes Up (Wager of Hearts, #2)The All-Star Antes Up by Nancy Herkness

“No strings, no rings.” That’s Luke Archer’s motto. As the champion quarterback for the New York Empire—not to mention a self-made billionaire—Luke has given up on serious relationships. Women only want him for one thing: the thrill of being with a superstar. And he can’t risk love distracting him from his next Super Bowl victory. But when his best friend announces he’s retiring from football to spend time with his wife and kids, Luke feels like he’s missing out on something much bigger than his career.
The assistant concierge in Luke’s luxury high-rise, Miranda Tate fled her family’s dairy farm to come to the bright lights of New York City. She works hard to move up and sends her spare earnings home to her brother. When she and Luke meet, there’s an instant attraction, but they’re in completely different leagues. Could Miranda be just the woman Luke needs to win the most important game of his life?

Nancy Herkness is a new author to me and I found I really did enjoy this read. The story is about a billionaire football quarterback and a hard working concierge who find their HEA.

This is the second book in The Wager of Hearts series and it could be read as a standalone. The story starts out with three very different billionaires ( football player, CEO and a author) drinking and making a bet. They all need to find love and get engaged in a years time. These three men bet something that means a lot to them so the stakes are high.

In this story we meet Luke who is a nfl quarterback, he lives for the game but he knows his years are numbered. His brother, Trevor, is staying with him and he's not a great roommate, but because of one of his brothers choices Luke gets to meet Miranda.

Miranda is a concierge working in Luke's building. She is hard working and sends majority of her earning back home to her brother. After she denied Trevor's request she meets Luke for the first time and as a thank you Luke sends her Vip tickets to his game and some merchandise.

These two had some great chemistry. I loved how they started out writing thank you to moving up to phone calls. Luke might be a billionaire and used to getting what he wants but he also is kind and very charming. This story reminded me of Maid in Manhattan with little twists.

Luke and Miranda have some pretty steamy love scenes in very unique places I.e. Home gym and the elevator. The love scenes are greatly detailed but they also show how much chemistry these two actually have.

In the end I was totally happy on how Miranda and Luke received their HEA. The All-Star Antes Up is a recommend read for this year. In fact I'm looking to reading more by this author since I enjoyed this story so much!
