Publisher's Summary

In the witty, sizzling finale to award-winning author Nancy Herkness's Wager of Hearts series, a haunted writer conquers his demons with the help of a feisty muse and a passion that doesn't play by the book.

Gavin Miller, the billionaire author of a best-selling thriller series, struggles with a grim secret: he hasn't written a word in more than a year.

Writer's block is killing his spirit and jeopardizing his contracts with his publisher and his Hollywood producers. Prodded by his agent, Gavin reluctantly agrees to see Allie Nichols, a sassy physical therapist tasked with treating the novelist's severe neck and shoulder pain - and maybe his writer's block, too.

The tempestuous Gavin and no-nonsense Allie soon find themselves entangled in a steamy affair that sparks Gavin's creativity again. But their manipulative ex-lovers and Gavin's lingering childhood scars threaten their happily ever after. Can Gavin and Allie find their way to love when the stakes are high and the obstacles are overwhelming?

    "No story, just sex"

    The first two in the series were good, but this one was just sex, sex, sex. That is not romance.

    "Inner feminist has left the building"

    Book 3 in the series has my bra-burning inner self banging her head against the wall. Yes, I did buy these books, yes I did listen to each one, yes, I did like them - stop with the self-shaming!

    Gavin, the author, with a deadline and a serious case of writers block, is the most miserable of the three love-less men. With the other two finding love, Gavin is living his tortured past, which is gripping his life today. Enter therapy and therapist. Angst, history and pain are revealed, a whole bunch of crazy sex thrown into the mix and Cinderella is again cheering when a happy Gavin crosses the finish line with love.

    Sappy, sexy, funny, more sexy, and wait.... oh, my God, Gloria Steinem has ripped the earphones from me and is listening to the sex! Ok, I think we'll all have a cigarette here and wrap this series up.

    I did it. I bought the series. I listened to all 3. I even wrote about it, admitting it!

    Now it's your turn.

    "Fantastic End to the Series"

    A perfect ending to a fantastic series. I’ve enjoyed each book in the series immensely. The VIP Doubles Down takes an interesting spin on the Cinderella story. It’s very subtle, but quite enjoyable to see similar elements of the two stories explored in this manner.
    Gavin has long been my favorite character. His gruff nature and tendency to get under the skin of the other billionaires has certainly entertained over the course of the last two books. I knew his story and the woman who claims his heart were going to be fantastic. I enjoyed the previous two books in the series and the formula works very well in this one as well. Wealthy business seeks the love of an everyday woman who cares for him and not his money or status. The women are all strong, feisty, and take no BS from their wealthy lovers.
    Here’s the breakdown: Gavin is a world-famous author suffering from writer’s block and back pain as a result of stress. His publicist hires a physical therapist him overcome the physical pain, but she ends up doing so much than that.
    What I enjoyed: Gavin has been my favorite character throughout the series. He’s been in pain in the butt to the previous businessmen, which endeared me to him. He not only brings a bit of humor to the earlier books by pushing everyone’s buttons. In this book, he gets as good as he gives.
    Ally is a perfect match for him. She’s recently separated from her ex-husband and looking for a fresh start. She refuses to become so caught up in another man that she loses her sense of self. However, that doesn’t prevent her from giving in to her desires. She balances her work, professional, and personal life perfectly. I enjoyed the relationship development immensely.
    The backstory for each character is well done, but I was blown away by Gavin’s past. It was brilliantly plotted.
    Overall, this is a very enjoyable book and magnificent series. I recommend it to readers who enjoy romance with just a hint of emotion and humor.
    Audiobook review: Lauren Ezzo's performance is brilliant. I enjoyed it very much and would definitely recommend other titles performed by this artist.

    "great finale!"

    I've read all three and Gavin was my favorite character! I loved his brooding personality and the many layers to his character. I was so eager to read his story and find out how his personality came to be.

    "The best for last"

    I just knew Gavin would have the best story! I knew the pain he displayed throughout the series would have the most painful back story. But the love of a good woman will always bring a man back from his torment. I've read all of Nancy Herkness books and can't wait for her next

    "Cracking ending"

    Best of the three kept me hooked. Although I saw the fall out coming it was still exceptionally done. Would have wanted to see the two evil women ex fiancé and step mother get their comeuppance
    Well done Nancy

    "A great ending to this trilogy"

    With all his snark and bark I really couldn't wait to hear Gavin's story. Ms Herkness didn't disappoint.

    Gavin and Ali are a great couple because they complement each other so well! Their characters are well crafted so you understand their motivations and actions, and even their really badly made decisions.

    This book is exactly what it says on the tin. The journey of a romance, the family characters on the periphery, the presumptions and assumptions that confuse them as they get to know each other.

    Nicely told Ms Herkness. I'll read your books again.
