Publisher's Summary

Sometimes with love, you have to play quick and dirty to get lucky....

I knew exactly what I was doing by setting my good-girl romance author image on fire. Becoming Reina Dare, a vixen writer who dominates the erotic fiction genre, is exactly who I was meant to be.

But Kent Kingsley is a distraction I didn’t see coming. It's a coin-flip whether I want to surrender to his sex appeal or punch him in his perfect, brooding face.

The damaged CEO of a lavish Las Vegas hotel and casino is an overly-confident, cocky playboy whose only romantic ambition is to send his women home with a smile.

The stakes have never been higher and just as my chance to catapult Reina Dare to the top is within my grasp, I risk it all. For him.

Kent makes my blood boil, and my body burn. There is no denying our chemistry is off the charts - in and out of bed. He’s every fantasy I’ve ever had.

He plays dirty, just the way I like it. But is it worth gambling my future for a chance at real love?

Love in Vegas!

“Quick Dirty Luck” is book two in the Love Between the Pages series, and I just adore that this series focuses around romance authors. It’s a nice twist to have a romance author as the main character who finds love all while dealing with the intricacies of the romance business and convention planning—a great connection for an avid reader like myself who loves to go to book signings. Alexis is tasked with securing a venue in Vegas for an upcoming book event, and sparks fly when she meets hotel owner, Kent Kingsley. Both are strong, independent personalities and their chemistry is off the charts! Yet Alexis’ strong will has her running. Kent is par for the chase, with some added familial assistance, to do whatever it takes to win Alexis over. Loved the game that these two played, the sexual tension and romance was always hot and the battle of wills even hotter! Heather Firth and Aaron Shedlock were an amazing duo and gave a great performance, capturing the characters’ dominant personalities while accentuating the humor, passion and vulnerability that made this a very enjoyable listening experience.

Run don't walk to get this book!

I asked to receive this free review Audible book and wrote this unbiased review. Omg this such a spectacular story that I hated to see it end! I was engrossed with this story the entire time. Thank you, Heather Guimond, for giving me such a delightful escape. You know sparks are going to fly when 2 very dominant and independent people meet and there is instant chemistry between them. Kent and Alexis journey to love won't be instantaneous and it will hit many bumps. Their bickering will have you laughing out and at times. Alexis will soon meet a challenge that sets her world spinning and makes her decide to stay as far away from Kent as she can. Kent and his 2 brother are constantly bickering and fighting but are always there for each other. His whole family will try to help him win over Alexis.

Aaron Shedlock and Heather Firth were meant for this story. They are excellent storytellers and bring the story to life. Believe me, they will hold your attention throughout this book. At first Aaron gives Kent a very cocky playboy, "I rule the roost" voice. Eventually his voice becomes more caring and loving and even desperate. Heather gives Alexis a scrappy, "I can take care of myself" voice. Her voice then expresses self doubt, indecisiveness, and love. Both narrators really bring out the emotions of these characters.

I highly recommend this Audible book. I wish I could give it more than five stars. The author and narrators have given you a story that will make you laugh and also tug at your heart.

An author, a CEO and luck...

Alexis is a best selling author who is in Las Vegas to scout out a location for a writer’s convention. Kent is the CEO of the chosen hotel and casino...but he’s a bit of a player and his first interaction with her, rubs Alexis the wrong way. That said, the chemistry between the pair can light a fire! After a steamy night together, Alexis takes off and tries to forget Kent. Kent, on the other hand, can’t get Alexis out of his head. Instead of going after Alexis, Kent resorts to subterfuge and machinations to win her. You will laugh, you will get angsty, but you will not stop listening to this book. The narrators are perfect for the characters. You will listen nonstop until the end.
Yes, I highly recommend and will be adding to my ‘re-listen’ list!

Fun in Vegas!

Entertaining from the opening line, Heather Guimond is a winner with book 2 of her Love Between the Pages series. This features Kent and Alexis. Kent is a hotel owner in Vegas and Alexis is booking his hotel to host an author signing. From the first meeting, we see the sparks fly, but not necessarily in a good way. Kent is that character that immediately got under my skin. He is annoying, yet charming. We all know people like that, and you want to like him, but he just has that way that bugs you! Alexis is the perfect heroine! She is confident and not afraid of anything. Strong woman always are a plus for me. Put these two together and it's combustible. It's a fast, fun, listen, includes some steamy passion and the crazy, yet lovable family that will make you laugh all the way through. Guimond has a true fan with me and I can't wait til there is another audio!

Give this story the team of Aaron Shedlock and Heather Firth and I know it's going to be incredible. Shedlock sneaks himself into Kent, gives us the arrogance in one breath and then eases us into his loving side all with the tone of his voice. Firth shines as Alexis, from her confidence to her uncertainty, her annoyance and her love. It comes through and lets us have all the feels. Together they have created the magic I love to hear.

Awesome Story & Narration🎧 A Smoking🔥Hot🔥Delight!

I loved everything about this book, from Heather Guimond’s wonderful writing style to the story and characters she created to the perfectly casted narrators, Heather Firth & Aaron Shedlock who truly brought the life, from the pages to your ears. This is the second book in the “A Love Between the Pages” series, can be enjoyed on it’s own but I recommend listening to the 1st book too, it is awesome too. This is Alexis and Kent’s story, Alexis Lane is an author known for her “good-girl” romance novels, she also writes Erotica novels under pen name Reina Dare. She wants to increase Reina Dare’s following so she is sponsoring the Limitless Lust in Vegas Convention. The Kingsley Hotel in Vegas is gaining popularity and she is hoping to strike a deal to hold the convention there while offering future bookings. Having no luck getting an appointment with the hospitality manager she heads to the bar for a relaxing drink. Kent Kingsley is the CEO of The Kingsley Hotel, he with the help of his siblings run it and have plans to make it better than ever. He is sitting in the hotel bar when a beauty catches his attention she sits a few stools away and he knew he had to have her and her sexy heels. Alexis first blew him off, she started to warm up to him when a woman approaches him. Thinking she is his girl friend she ups and leaves. He tried looking her up but there was no room registered in her name. I loved how everything plays out in this book, how Alexis does not give him the time of day and how he does not give up. Just when he thinks he has her she pushes him away even further. Got to love strong willed people, Kent even recruits his family to help him win her over. There is never a dull moment in this book, the story flows naturally and it is plotted out nicely with plenty of drama, angst, some laughs, heartfelt moments and smoking hot romance. Heather Guimond thank you for another great story!

Heather Firth and Aaron Shedlock are talented narrators and voice artists. They do an awesome job portraying the characters, humanizing them, giving each their own voice and personality, as well as heart and attitude. You could hear how much heart they put into their work as they capture and project the characters emotions into their performance. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another fabulous listen🎧

The perfect convention

I loved all of the aspects of this story. The chemistry, the romance, and the setting. Anyone who has tried to organize a convention or a conference knows how hard it is. I loved the details around that part. And I loved how the characters kept crossing paths. The emotions run strong with these two, both good and bad. When they are good together they are very good, and when they are bad together they are very bad. But, family is important to both of them and with their support it seems to work itself out.
This was book 2 in the series but I did not listen to book one and there were no issues with following along or anything. It is a complete standalone and an overall great listen.

I really, really liked this story!

Alexis and Kent are very different people... but there is something that draws them to each other from their very first meeting.

He’s a hotel owner and she is a writer looking for a place to host a book convention. She has two writing personas, one sweet and one dirty. He’s wowed from the first time he sees her... she thinks he’s hit, but a jerk...

What happens is a great story of how two people can be attracted but be off center and don’t think they mesh. There’s way more to the story... and it’s quite fun listening to find out what happens!

Heather Firth and Aaron Shedlock are both very good at what they do and together... they’re awesome.

Reluctant Love

Alexis and Kent turned out to be a cute couple. Alexis kept running away and Kent kept chasing. I liked the way Kent kept coming up with different excuses to have Alexis meet with him and his obsession with her shoes was great. Hot sex and great friends and family bring this story together perfectly.

Love this family!

This was my first listen by this author and I could not have loved this family more. Their scheming and “asshole”-ishness was hilarious. I highly recommend this book for a fun, hot listen. Gotta love HEA!!!

First book from this author! Loved it!

This was my first book from this author and I absolutely loved the story. I was drawn into it immediately based on the performances from Heather Firth and Aaron Shedlock, who are always amazing. The characters had depth and were real. I loved the determination of Kent's character to win back his girl. Had me hooked from the beginning. Highly Recommend. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Love in Vegas

This is book two in this series about romance writers and their HEA. This one is about Alexis and Kent and when Alexis aka Raina is seeking a venue for a book event she is contracting with Kent and his brother to use their hotel conference room. Alexis gets more than she expected and so does Kent.

Aaron and Heather do a great good narrating this book. It is funny at times and hot at others and interesting to have a character that is a romance author. I enjoyed listening to this book.

Viva Las Vegas!

A feisty, strong, author heroine and a hot hotelier meet in a bar....and a small conflagration is ignited! Alexis and Kent are destined to butt heads, but the attraction they have for each other is so strong..and insanely hot. With a great plot line involving a book convention in the making, (oh how I miss those!), our couple are fire and earth, with Kent an often clueless suitor!
This has been such a fun listen and both Heather Firth and Aaron Shedlock are excellent in the roles. They brought strength and nuance to their narration, bringing both humour and humanity to the story. 💖💖💖💖

Quick Dirty Luck

Quick Dirty Luck is a steamy rom com. It is the entertaining story of Kent and Alexis who are a couple with explosive chemistry but both want power and control so the angst is high as they are continually playing games with each other. She keeps running away and he just keeps creating these stunts to win her back which makes for an interesting story with lots of fireworks. Heather Firth and Aaron Shedlock both did an excellent job bringing this story to life.

Great narration

I really liked the writing style and will try more by this author, however I didn't actually like this story. I somehow liked the characters even though I didn't like a lot of their actions. The bickering didn't bother me, however it was A LOT of games and general dishonestly (making people jealous, etc.).

The narration was great with dual narrators for the dual points of view, which I always appreciate. I would recommend listening to the audio version.

Love these two narrators

This is a fun, quirky fast romance. Thought Alexis or Reina was a bit naive to not see the Kingsley family making her stay put but loved the back and forth between her and Kent. Really loveable characters here and with outstanding narration by both Heather Firth and Aaron Shedlock who are amazing in their own right but as dual just work fabulously.

I was fortunate enough to win a copy of this audiobook and I’m leaving my honest opinion.

Really fun listen and it’s a series so I gotta check out the other books too!

Just her luck...

I enjoyed this story. I found it flowed well... There was a bit of a power struggle between Kent and Alexis. At times I wondered why she didn't tell Kent and his family to do one, because I know I would of! So at time I felt myself thinking "really, you're going to just go with this?" Other than that a nice easy listen.

Narration was top notch!

I’ll probably revisit the characters later

I was interested in this one, because it seemed sexy and fascinating–I love having a look behind the curtain, and following a romance author, who uses a pen name to write erotica, while she organizes a signing event, had me thrilled. And in those points, this book delivers. The steamy scenes are scorching hot, and we get a glimpse at what it is to be a romance writer.

I also enjoyed both narrators. The male reader is especially good with sweet whispering–he gets you shivering. The female reader did a remarkable job, both sexy and strong and emotional when needed. A really good audiobook.

The story itself, I didn’t enjoy that much. I didn’t feel the growing feelings between Alexis and Kent–it was once again instalust, with a side of hate sex. If the characters didn’t keep saying that “there was something more”, I wouldn’t have seen it.

I loved the characters though, all of them. The whole Kingsley clan is delightful.

I realized afterwards that I actually own the first book of the series as an audiobook too, so I’ll probably revisit the characters later.
