What it’s about
Some Odds are Meant to be Played… 
The Hotel Rodeo in Las Vegas has seen better days, but managing partner Ty Morgan has come up with a way to return it to its former glory. His plan looks promising until the unthinkable happens. Suddenly Ty is working for the boss’s daughter. And Miss Monica Brandt, hot as she may be, doesn’t share his vision…
She left a fabulous career and a frustrated fiancé in New York to move to Vegas and save her father’s investment. But now Monica is locking horns with a sexy cowboy-turned-businessman. What does Ty think he can do that she can’t? All Monica knows is that she doesn’t dare trust him—or is it herself she doesn’t trust…
The battle lines are drawn. The stakes are high. And the attraction can’t be denied—especially the more closely Ty and Monica have to work together. Some odds are just meant to be played, and with chemistry this electric, it may be time to grab life by the horns…


Karla’s Review
4.5 Stars! The Hotel Rodeo series has great potential and Hell On Heels comes out the gate kicking! 
A nice start to a series with a unique setting and a fun feel!
I love Ty, he has all the great qualities I love in a hero; honorable, dependable, somewhat humble, a kind heart, looks out for others…just a good man that has a positive outlook and he’s HOT! I also appreciated that he and his ex, Delaney, had a somewhat amicable relationship, no mud-slinging or vilifying each other. It’s apparent that their marriage didn’t work, but they’re not spiteful towards each other. They aren’t best buddies but it’s obvious at one time they cared for one another.
Monica is a great heroine! Sassy, smart, independent, and even though she’s snarky with Ty, blames him for her father’s stroke, she realizes early on that she’s jumped to conclusions and misjudged him. I hate heroines that don’t hold themselves accountable, but Monica becomes aware that her lashing out is cause for the way Ty reacts. She scored big points with me when she owned up. Ty and Monica eventually work through their issues and the two of them together…AWESOME …especially when they hit the sheets! Funny stuff, her control issues and excitement made for some amusing moments and the banter between them is the stuff good romantic comedies are made of, even though this is a contemporary romance!
The loss of a character I wanted to know more about, made me sad, but it was necessary for the story to progress, and also for Ty and Monica to move forward, not only with their relationship but exploring the future of the hotel’s potential.
I had a hard time putting this story down, and even though Ty and Monica’s relationship is left somewhat unresolved it doesn’t have a cliffhanger feel like we see in a serial series, where the reader is left hanging, but more of a carry-over story where the characters and plot continue to develop. I’m positive that Monica and Ty’s relationship will become more defined in the next book and a new romance will start to stir. Something tells me Delaney and Zac, Ty’s ex and former rodeo buddy, are going to become a story at some point too!
Hell On Heels is an enjoyable read with a unique setting for a cowboy romance, fun charming characters, lots of witty dialogue, and sizzling chemistry that boils over into some steamy sex! In addition, so many secondary characters have piqued my interest and I want more! Victoria Vane doesn’t make us wait long to find out the outcome of Ty and Monica’s relationship or what is to become of the hotel. She follows up quickly with the release of Two To Wrangle coming February 16th!
