    I am not even sure how to start this review....don't get me wrong I like the story and love the characters. Lots of ((gasps)) and WTFs...but I have mixed feelings about how this ended. I don't know if there is another book in the works...the end of the book didn't give much away. You will just have to read and judge for yourself....

    I loved Lucy Smith’s first book, The Sunday Arrangement, and was so excited to see this sequel was available. I couldn’t wait to get back to the racy world of Hart Corp and Maverick & Co! I absolutely loved Raise the Stakes! The writing was so much smoother and more natural than the first book, but it is just as sexy and thrilling. The plot is exciting and the characters even more vivid and wild! The story gets straight into the action - starting right where The Sunday Arrangement so tantalisingl I loved Lucy Smith’s first book, The Sunday Arrangement, and was so excited to see this sequel was available.

The story gets straight into the action - starting right where The Sunday Arrangement so tantalisingly ended - and flows really well. Its steamy passages are hot as hell - it’s not for the faint hearted and you won’t want to be reading it in a public place! It’s got lust, drama, suspense, mystery and humour in a fantastic story. There’s more from the supporting characters this time and it’s been great to see where Lauren and Pierce’s adventures have taken them next. The suspense builds and builds through the last few chapters and the ending was quite a surprise - I really hope there’s a third book to come!

    Great book I'm a little disappointed that there is more to this story. Only because amazon has it as book 2 of 2 however it must just be because book 3 or more isn't out yet. Anyway it's not your normally annoying cliffhanger this is a full book and the storyline is taken care up but the plot thickening right at the end. This book has a lot going for it and surprises come out at ever corner. Great book I'm a little disappointed that there is more to this story.

    I liked the book and how they really wanted to be together. I did not like or expect the ending the way it happened. I hope there is another book coming out in the series to tie this story us because it felt not complete. Like it couldn't end the way it did. I haven't found if there is another book coming or not. But I did like their relationship, the story overall was good, the scenes were hot but it was the ending that didn't do it for me. I liked the book and how they really wanted to be together.

    Great follow up Not everyone gets happily ever after. At least not in the usual sense. But what is happily ever after. Life hands us lemons. How do we respond...

    Ok Do not like ending. No....I hate the ending. Better be another soon. I can't recommend this unless you want to cry. Ok Do not like ending. No....I hate the ending. Better be another soon. I can't recommend this unless you want to cry.
