Losing Enough by Helen Boswell Review & Giveaway

When I found out that Helen Boswell was writing an NA novel and that it was set in Vegas, I was thrilled. I live in Las Vegas and the author nailed the details perfectly. This book isn't your typical NA, in terms of sex, they do have it but it’s not the sole focus. Losing Enough is more than what’s out there right now. It's about real life struggles, falling in love, and learning to let go.

Alexis, Alex, is a girl some might think as spoiled because every summer she gets to vacation in Las Vegas while her High Roller dad plays the scene, but it’s nothing like that. First night in town she goes to see her best friend at the bar she works at, bumps into a guy that seems like an ass. Little does she know that she will be seeing more of him, especially when he saves her from a douche bag and then takes her home.

Connor…oh how I love Connor. He comes off as an ass, but in his line of work, and his past, you can’t
really blame him. When a girl he took home for his cousin to make up for the past, he never thought he would be thinking about her again. Connor has a past though, one he moved to Vegas to avoid, but it seems it’s found him anyways. I love who he becomes with Alex. She's able to break through his walls and see the real Connor that's hidden deep.

When Alex and Connor start seeing each other, things in both of their lives make things difficult. Alex’s mom is sick and her dad got into business with the wrong person, Connor’s twin brother has a demand, and the feelings between the two are more than just a fling. But will they let it develop into something more? Life has a way of pulling people together just when you need it, but sometimes fate needs a helping hand.

Does Alex and Connor have a future, or will the past get in the way? You need to pick this book up and read it for yourself. Helen Boswell did an amazing job in bringing these characters to life, and my only complaint is I want more. I couldn’t get enough of Alex and Connor and hope to see more of them later on. Hear that Helen Boswell, can I get a novella please? This is definitely a book I can read over and over again, just writing this review weeks after I read the book, makes me want to pick it back up!

Losing Enough by Helen Boswell was just amazing! I could not put it down! I loved the story flow and all the characters.  Alexis was heading to Las Vegas to meet up with her parents for vacation.  High Roller hotel and Room, it was to be the ultimate!  Her and her best friend Elle is a hoot! I love her and glad I have a friend just as fun! Alexis is there to hit the clubs and to just have an over all blast.  She didn't gamble on meeting a hot private security guard by the name of Connor. Connor has built the private security business for himself.  Escaping the life his twin brother was leading.  He took care of all  the high rollers and this put him in perfect view of Alexis and her father.  They both did not want a relationship but the attraction was there. Can they let down their walls and take a chance.  Also when Connor’s “evil twin” comes into play will it ruin everything he has worked up to? 
I LOVED this book and love that Helen took a chance on this story! I want more already! Loved every character! You should go try out this book!!
