She’s only spoken to him online. He’s used to making crazy plays. Will they bet on passion’s winning numbers?
Kyra Washington has always prided on order. For her, working as a nurse in the busy neonatal unit at MetroGeneral Hospital, order saves lives. The most chaos she ever tolerates is her football team’s perpetual losing record. On a whim, she agrees to meet another super-fan from a message board on a girl's trip to Vegas.
Ryan Yates thrives on pressure and craziness. An ER doctor who embodies all things adrenaline in the emergency room, he's used to making bold decisive decisions. Too bad his favorite football team can't show any of the same skills. However, he has a pretty good feeling about fellow fan, Kyra, after they meet in Sin City.
Throwing the dice like this is something Kyra has never done before, and she fears the stakes could lead to heartbreak. When they end up working together at MetroGen, can Ryan convince Kyra that being together is winning the jackpot?

This was quite a wild ride! It's a very fast read and moving along at a lightning-quick pace just adds to the dizzying feeling of the story. Things turn on a dime, there's so many people, and there's a great deal of detail not only about the Cleveland Browns but also ER and NICU medicine. After a while I kind of gave up on making complete sense of it and just went along for the ride. It feels like it's very necessary to read the whole series to have an idea of who's who and what's happening (and I still don't understand the diary entries from the chaplain?) Befuddled as I was at times, I'm not at all sorry I read it. My favorite part was the vivid detail in both the football and medical parts of the story. There's a real sense of place and community in the writing that feels so authentic. I would definitely encourage readers to read through the series if they're looking for a fresh, intense whirlwind of a story! Many thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review!

Roulette: A Strong Woman Medical Romance by Carina Alyce is the fourth book in the MetroGen After Hours Series and inhabits the same universe as the MetroGen Downtown Forbidden Love Duets. One of the best parts of this series is the constant overlap and catching up with couples and people from previous books. Of all the books I have read in these two series, hands down this is my favorite. The book’s construction easily pulled me in and the initial connection/meeting between our two main characters was so cute and so much fun! Kyra Washington and Ryan Yates are polar opposites; she is a very organized and composed nurse working in a neonatal unit and he is a laidback, adrenaline junkie working in the always hectic atmosphere of the ER; he is also a bit of disciplined gambler. They meet while cheering for the perennial losing team, the Cleveland Browns. I do not watch football but amazingly the banter between these two die hard fans was fascinating. I actually learned a great deal about the history of the Cleveland Browns. When they meet, they are both in costume and based on their love for the Browns, strike up an online friendship, sight unseen. When these opposites finally connect in real time and real life, will they be able to forge a lasting relationship? The commentary/diary entries from the hospital chaplain made for charming transitions between chapters. I liked Kyra but I LOVED Ryan and I was totally rooting for him to beat the house!
