Hey everyone, I hope you are all staying safe and warm. I woke up to snow this morning which is a rare sighting as I am in Texas and most winters we get nasty ice sludge. I am starting to get cabin fever but this weather is providing nice hibernating under the covers with a blanket and the occasional cup of hot cocoa moments. So, without further delay lets get to it!

The night of her birthday party the two decide to break the one rule her brother gave her. After all, what is the harm in a secret among friends?
Until emotions run high, games are played and life forces you to gamble.
I LOVED this book! The storyline was intriguing and fun. Some moments were predictable but even the predictable moments had twists. I would love to read more work from this author in the future.
