Former party girl, Alisa Turner, made a deal with her daddy, Trey. He’ll provide the seed money for her new business venture as long as she promises to stay out of trouble. Too bad her good intentions tumble 30,000 feet when she meets a sexy stranger on a flight to sin city.
Hotel mogul, Liam Bryson, has never believed in love at first sight, but when a sexy little siren twenty years his junior tempts him into a night of high stakes Blackjack, he’s suddenly playing for keeps.
Alisa wakes up in Liam’s bed the next morning, cursing Tequila and the five carat diamond on her left hand. She demands an annulment before her over-protective father finds out she reneged on their agreement, but her new hubby isn’t prepared to let her go without a fight.

So, I have had the first three books in the Nashville Nights Series sitting on my kindle, waiting for me to find some free time to read them...well...NOW I HAVE TO!!  I am one of those readers who has to go back and read EVERY book that came before the one I just read cause I want to know...Who?  What?  Where?  Why?...Yes..I am nosy and I want to know whats the goings's the same reason I have a hard time watching a movie from the middle, I NEED to know the WHOLE STORY....So THANKS A LOT Cheryl...You have now moved the Nashville Nights Romances UP the TBR pile!!
As for HIGH STAKES, which is the first book in the Nashville Nights Next Generation Series, I truly enjoyed it!  Cheryl has a way of making you fall in love right along with the characters.  I found myself saying, "Well OF COURSE they are in love...They just have that ...Something!"
Might I just say, Lian Bryson...YUMMOOOOOOOOOOOO!!  I can see why Alisa fell in love with him, a take charge kind of guy is right up my alley!  And I loved the dynamic with Liam and Abby, it made him ALL the more resistible!
Cheryl writes true to the feelings of the characters, how they would react "the morning after", even when it isn't all sunshine and roses.  I really felt for Liam and Alisa, I wanted them to be together, but I could understand what was driving them apart. 
HIGH STAKES is a wonderful start to the Next Generation, and I will be heading back to Nashville Nights Numero Uno to find out what happened between Trey and Sierra.
Meet Cheryl
Cheryl began her professional career as a nutritionist, but her love of books started at an early age. She studied writing for many years before she decided to pursue her passion as a full-time career. After receiving constructive criticism from several well-known authors, Cheryl finally had the confidence to write her first romance novel.
The first book in the Nashville Nights series, Shameless, was a book that had been dwelling in Cheryl’s subconscious for years. For her, the surprise came when the manuscript began taking on a life of its own. Characters came to life, secondary characters became more prominent, outlines were forgotten, and a single title evolved into an eight book series, and another eight book spin-off series entitled Nashville Nights, Next Generation.
One word would aptly describe Cheryl: workaholic. She lives and breathes her writing, when she’s sleeping, watching TV, driving, reading… it’s always in the periphery of her mind. Her imagination rarely takes a holiday, even when she escapes to a sandy beach with her husband and son, she’s planning, plotting, outlining, and daydreaming.
Cheryl feels blessed to be able to get up every day and do something she loves. The thousands of fans who have embraced the Nashville Nights have made that possible. She writes for the readers who ask for more, she writes to satisfy the muse residing inside of her, but most of all, she writes because she couldn’t imagine doing anything else with her life. It took her thirty-seven years to decide what she wanted to be when she grew up, but now that she knows, she’s convinced she’s found her purpose.

I have added High Stakes to my read list. I like Liam and want to see how the story turns out.

Thanks so much for having me today, and taking the time to read and review High Stakes. I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

It's true, I'm currently working on Abby's story and let's just say I'm having a blast with it. I found the perfect man for her in one of my other books, but he's just about the last person I would have expected to pair her up with. Somehow, it just seems to be working though. Just goes to show my muse is much smarter than I am! lol
